On Saturday the Perth Atheists protested outside St Mary’s catholic church in Perth to protest the hypocrisy of a 40day long prayer vigil to oppose abortion. As if some non-existent being is going to give to shits about a group of idiots with their hands clapped together.
The Christian ‘God’ is a mass murdering psychopath who is very much enjoys killing children. Here is my favorite excerpt from the bible.
And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle. -Exodus 12:29
So why would any “pro-lifer” support such a being. Could it be that they are secretly pro-mass murdering bigoted scumbags; or just massive hypocrites?
Japan is currently struggling to deal with a natural disaster that has left thousands of people either Dead, Injured or Missing. However no disaster is tragic enough to deter crooks from taking advantage of the suffering.
An Australian homeopathy syndicate called Homeopathy Plus! sent this newsletter to it’s members.
In the wake of the major earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan on Friday, an explosion has just occurred at the Fukushima nuclear power plant.
It was reported that radiation had already leaked from the plant prior to the explosion and Japanese officials now fear a meltdown with further contamination has now taken place.
People are being evacuated from surrounding areas as engineers scramble to contain the damage.
Should the situation worsen, radioactive material carried by wind and air currents may spread contaminated material to neighbouring islands and countries.
For all concerned, there are protective steps that can be taken with homeopathy.
Key remedies that have been used either in research or historically to prevent or treat radiation poisoning include the following:
1. Cadmium iodide
If at risk of radiation exposure, any one of the above remedies may be taken as an emergency response, three times a day in a 30C potency. Do not exceed 6 doses without guidance from your homeopath. If radiation sickness has developed, your homeopath can also advise on treatment dosages. –Homeopathy Plus; Newsletter
Homeopathy Plus is actually recommending that people use Homeopathic treatments to cure them of radiation sickness. These frauds selling fake medicine are going to cost people their lives; I have already written about the tragic case of homeopath Francine Scrayen killing Penelope Dingle by selling her homeopathic remedies that do not work.
If the Australian government does not act to shutdown Homeopathy Plus they will only continue to defraud people not only out of money but also out of health. The Therapeutic Goods Administration has already ordered Homeopathy Plus to retract misinformation on it’s website. Unfortunately the TGA is a toothless dragon and I believe people are going to suffer as a result of the frauds who take advantage of sick and vulnerable people. We have seen it before and unfortunate we will continue to see people suffer at the hands of these con-men until the government starts taking it’s responsibility seriously.
Ordinarily Body and “Soul” festivals are a heaven for frauds and con-men but down in Launceston, Tasmania a small group of skeptics managed to acquire a stall at the Body and Soul Festival.
Well done Launceston Skeptics. This is a great achievement for a skeptics group that is little more than a year old. I only hope that we in Perth can someday become as organised as Launceston and make such a positive leap in the promotion of critical thinking.
A local Perth man has been sentenced to 3 years in prison for daring to exercise Freedom of Speech in Perth, Western Australia. Brendon O’Connel posted anti-semetic videos on YouTube, yes O’Connel is a jackass but that isn’t the point. Regardless of whether or not you agree with Brendon O’Connel part of living in a democracy is the freedom to think and say what you like. Even if others don’t like it.
A 39-year-old Perth man has been sentenced to three years’ jail for posting an anti-semitic video on the internet.
Brendon Lee O’Connell is the first person in Western Australia to be convicted under the state’s racial vilification laws.
A jury found him guilty last week of six offences.
O’Connell posted a video on YouTube showing him insulting a young Jewish man in 2009.
The video also showed O’Connell standing in front of the Perth Bell Tower telling Jews their days were numbered. –ABC News
This is pretty discusting. Australia is a Western Democracy and one of the foundations of that democracy is the Right to Freedom of Speech. Although poorly understood our society recognises and values the right to free-speech. However Steve Lieblich the other jackass in this storey seems to disagree.
Steve Lieblich, who represents the Jewish community and is on the Australia-Israel and Jewish Affairs Council, says racial vilification must be stopped. –ABC News
The best response to distasteful speech is in fact more speech. Don’t seek vengeance against someone just because you disagree with them, instead find a reasonable way to address their speech with some of your own and you can still hold the moral high ground. Because demanding someone be punished or censored only pushes yourself towards moral bankruptcy.
So in the interest of Freedom of Speech in Australia I really do hope Steve Lieblich’s days are numbered. Feel free to respond in kind and use your Freedom of Speech however you see fit. (Caution Advised for Western Australia)
