This is a map highlighting where New South Wales is.
And this is a map highlighting where the last two people referred to the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal for homosexual vilification live and work and breathe and do things.
Those of you who can read a map will immediately notice that neither of these people actually live inside New South Wales.
So watch out Australia, the New South Wales ‘Thought Police’ have crossed the borders and are coming after you. If you put it on Facebook, Tweet it, talk to your local newspaper or just go off on a rant somewhere in the bush, be warned that your actions can and will be scrutinised.
And if you say something that a homosexual activist doesn’t like, you’ll wind up with a letter or email from the New South Wales Anti-Discrimination Board whinging about how you should get yourself a New South Wales postal address to make their life easier.
Take it from me.
I’ve got one of these letters. Actually, I’ve got seven of them.
I’m the little red dot in Queensland.
And the other little red dot in Victoria represents Tess Corbett.
She committed the heinous crime of suggesting that anti-discrimination laws will one day give paedophiles the same protections as homosexuals. And the same activist who lodged the complaint against her for that statement has lodged a complaint against me for offering the opinion that homosexuals who expose themselves to children at ‘Gay Pride’ events are perverted.
So Tess Corbett might be right, but these days being right is against the law. It’s not much consolation.
Tess was also found guilty for stating that she supported laws that allow Christian organisations to discriminate against homosexuals.
Now you might not know this, but Christian organisations can decide not to employ homosexuals. Because they are homosexual.
It is not illegal for a Christian school to say that it does not want homosexual teachers in its employ. In fact, it is perfectly lawful for a school principal to say exactly that.
This is because every state government as well as the Commonwealth recognises that just because you are homosexual, you do not have the unfettered right to force your view of the world on others. Not that anyone who listens to the constant stream of pro-gay news in the media would know that.
But I think we should make a point of emphasising this. And celebrate it (while we can). Right now, today, Christian organisations can lawfully discriminate against homosexuals. This is a good thing.
Of course, because Christians are interested in doing useful things like building schools and educating children, there are such things as Christian schools. Now, I don’t know of any homosexual schools. I’m guessing that’s because the homosexual world is more interested in themselves and their ‘rights’ rather than doing things for the betterment of others.
But if the gay community ever got together and built a gay school, I would have no problem in being told that they did not want to employ Christian teachers. I’m not sure any truly Christian teachers would want the job anyway, and I certainly would fear for the moral development of children in such a school. But I don’t know any Christians who would argue that they have a ‘right’ to come into that school and ‘force’ their view on others.
I don’t know why this should not also be the case for the LGBT community.
But homosexual activists think that they do have the ‘right’ to come into Christian schools and ‘force’ them to accept their views of the world.
And that is exactly why a nano-second after the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal found that Tess Corbett was not allowed to appeal against the decision that she had vilified homosexuals by stating her support for extant laws, a homosexual activist put a press release out with these words:
“…the ruling would go down in case law and prevent politicians from appealing to the Bible to justify vilification. In a written submission last year, a lawyer for Ms Corbett had attempted to use the Bible as supporting evidence.
“Today’s decision will set a precedent for future cases that not only is vilifying homosexuals illegal, but you can’t use the Bible or religion as a valid legal defence…”
This activist wants to force Christians into a world where they cannot express their moral views. And this ruling has now made it more difficult for them to do so.
It also means we have arrived at the utterly absurd position where it is lawful to discriminate against homosexuals but it is not lawful to state that you support this law.
And in New South Wales, this means that the same law that allows discrimination against homosexuals is the same law that says you can’t say that you support this idea. It is now a breach of section 49ZT of the New South Wales Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 to state that you support section 49ZH (3) (c) of the New South Wales Anti-Discrimination Act 1977.
For those who don’t know, there is actually a reason why Christian schools would not want to employ homosexuals. A very good reason.
For instance, the Catholic Church teaches that homosexual acts are gravely depraved and not to be approved under any circumstances. It even teaches that the inclination to homosexuality is intrinsically disordered. This does not mean that it hates homosexuals. On the contrary, it wants them to go Heaven and it knows that the road there is blocked for those who do not repent of homosexual behaviour. Hiding this fact might ‘seem’ nice, but it is not loving.
I happen to be Catholic which also means that I accept the Church’s teaching.
And, like any other sane parent that I know, I do not want someone who is intrinsically disordered and engaged in acts of grave depravity to have any influence over the character formation of my children. I want my children to go to Heaven and not end up in the other place.
That means it is perfectly logical that I do not want homosexual teachers at my children’s Catholic school.
And today I can get my way. I just can’t state why I support this situation anymore. Unfortunately, that means the homosexual brigade have pretty much won the battlefield and tomorrow things will probably change.
If it is illegal to state that you support discrimination against homosexuals and if it is vilification to outline the reasons why, then it is only a matter of time before the law changes to force Christian schools to hire homosexual teachers.
And the Civil and Administrative Tribunal has just found that Tess Corbett can’t even appeal the decision that she vilified homosexuals for expressing her beliefs in support of the current law.
So prepare yourself for an onslaught against the current laws and your right to raise your children to follow Christian principles.
