KAP Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter has warned the Australian people that the persecution of Christianity is on the rise as Israel Folau again makes front page headlines for delivering a sermon in his church on Sunday which suggested the bushfires were a Divine repercussion of legalising same-sex marriage and abortions.
Mr Katter said, “I just toured with Pauline Hanson and we have some very fundamental differences but we work together for the good of the nation. I may disagree with Folau on some elements of theology and fundamentalism, but the intense persecution that he has been suffering to me is just continuation of the religious persecution that is taking place against Christianity almost everywhere in Australia.
“Is this any different to blaming the greenies for the fires? And is there any logic in the greenies blaming the people for the fires?
“They listen to the scientists with a different point of view, the scientists can argue, but theologists can’t. Clearly this man is a preacher and I don’t feel that a nation that kills little children before they are born is a good thing.”
“From where I sit, I’ve always voted for freedom in a society that is overly restrictive and there is no doubt that religious freedom is under attack here. And whether you agree with his comment or you don’t, rest assured they will come after you.
“They managed to take out Pell and Hollingsworth, and now they are going after the most prominent spokesperson for the Evangelic church.”
Mr Katter said that the history books tell of thousands of examples where the groups of people rose up against the persecution of their freedoms.
“Most of the world thought communism was good, even though Mao Tse Tung was responsible for 47,000 deaths and Stalin for 28,000 deaths. But we that belong to the English speaking tribe have prided ourselves on freedom of thought and expression and whilst we may attribute this to the German Martin Luther, and the Medici (who were also the Popes for nearly 70 years) Florentine family, both these people were characterised by Freedom of Thought. Tolerating and protecting even fanatics like Savonarola.
“Unfortunately for our enemies, history records that we Christians thrive on persecution. But even the most cursory reading of history will find that evil people don’t like being criticised for their evil – again, Stalin and Mae Tse Tung, McCarthyism, Salem witch burning, the Spanish Inquisition.
“People do not tolerate criticism or even people being different and not towing the conventional wisdom of the day.
“The great Thomas Jefferson said, ‘I do not agree often with what you are saying, but I will fight to the death for your right to say it”.
“Someone that puts moral convictions over his personal income, I find inspirational whether I agree with what he is saying or whether I don’t.”

Whilst I do have problems with Israel Folau’s funding campaign, I have more of a problem with GoFundMe censoring the anti-vaxxers.
In Australia we have freedom of speech, and it is no-one’s business to interfere with that. No-one.
The anti-vaxxers have a case, and they should be able to make that case, as there is a vast body of proof concerning hugely adverse reactions to vaccines-even the UK and US Governments have set up vaccine damage compensation funds for those affected.
Where is Australia’s Registry of Vaccine-Damaged People, and where is the concomitant fund?
Alternative medicine needs support also, as I, myself, used the former to cure a life-threatening infection, in two and half weeks, that my doctor, and his futile penicillin, could not cure in nine weeks of treatment.
We all have a right to make our case known, and for opponents to attempt rebuttal, but not to simply to censor.
Free Speech is a God-given right. Let it remain so.

Freedom of choice must be made; we the citizens have the right to Black Ban QANTAS for interfering with our democratic right of freedom of religious expression and belief. Our friends and family fought and died in wars for these freedoms and every Australian that honours what our Diggers fought for, and every Christian and other religious believer must now unite as an army of Freedom Fighters against QANTAS and refuse to use their business.
They wanted to use their financial power of sponsorship to destroy and discredit a decent man and the beliefs of millions of Australians, the people have stood behind Israel Folau to the back him with over $2 to fight for our combined freedom.
We reject the dictatorial attitude of QANTAS and their attempt to override freedom of speech and expression of religious beliefs. The entire QANTAS organisation, directors, management and staff are condemned by your unacceptable thin-skinned petty attack on our freedom. The company made the complaint, so it encompasses the entire organisation, not just one person, appearing that the complainant/s overrides the opinions and beliefs of all staff.
‘We The People’, will no long tolerate the noisy minorities of do-gooders, social engineers, bleeding hearts, professional victims, mixed genders and those of limited intelligence directing the agenda of out nation. It stops now, the people’s voice is behind Israel Folau and his beliefs of freedom of expression and the right to be heard, we will no longer tolerate the noisy rabbled overriding freedom or insulting what our diggers fought for.
Australia is the land of the free, if you do not like it please leave, feel free to migrate to China or North Korea.

It was always going to happen. Australians have for years and years been pushed and pushed. Told what to think and what not to think.
Thought control, brilliantly prophesied many years ago by George Orwell, has been slowly invading and taking root in the very fabric of Australian culture. Insidiously, powerfully and threateningly it has been sliding like a serpent in the grass past our ankles, often unnoticed.
This has been an invasion of a new order, not a physical invasion but a mental one. Australians are famous for their fighting spirit in the physical theatre of war, their bonds of mateship running deep, but mental war?
In mental war we are newcomers.
Political Correctness, one of the many forms of Communism, has been able to invade our entire culture and all our institutions. For years Australians have been bewildered, stuttering, defensive : “I’m not a racist”. Australians have been wholly inadequate against the ever encroaching evil of Political Correctness. Many still struggle to hold their ground. At physical warfare we are incredible. At mental warfare, not so much. Every organ in the Australian body is diseased with Political Correctness, or more deeply, Communism. People live with it, it is now “how things are”.
On an instinctive deeper level, there has been a deepening sense of violation.
It is fitting that a footballer is at the epicentre of the pushback, for football is central to Aussie culture. It is the fireside where Aussies warm their hearts, share and enjoy a sense of community. It needed to be a footballer and Israel Folau, by all accounts a very likable, decent, earnest, sincere man, was the one destiny chose. He now is the torchbearer for all who wish to push back Communistic invasion into our land .. the mental invasion that has been so little understood but deeply felt by all.
A QANTAS CEO, Communist-infected, attempted to punish Israel for having his own thoughts. Yes, there is always an excuse, but the deeper reality is Israel felt a heavy boot on his throat when living his life as we all do. If he breached any contract then that contract should never have existed. A homosexual, in defence of his own sexual practice, has no right on any level to big brother a man he has never met who is living his life in a totally normal way. Israel happens to be religious, were he not, the same applies.
What we are witnessing is a massive rejection of thought control, more deeply of Communism. Money is pouring in. More and more people are getting on board. Australian Rugby risks bankruptcy. Many media personalities who thought they ruled, had the upper hand, are feeling their real or imagined grip on Australia loosening. Australia is finding her very spirit. She is finally, in a half conscious state, throwing off Political Correctness, more deeply Communism. Many don’t fully understand what they are doing, it is more an instinctive act they feel they must carry out. A full, more lucid comprehension of what this is really all about will hopefully come later, but a great surge of anti-Communistic defiance is now well under way.
This is deeply needed for our country and could well inspire and give heart to other countries around the world currently riddled with Communistic invasion.
