Comment on Will Aboriginal councillor be blocked from town camps? by Evelyne Roullet.

I think so too, Rapscullion, and also his children know they are not different that the camps’relatives.
Camps should be called Estate, as they are part of Alice Springs and not fringe residential area. For several decades Geoff Shaw and his spouse Eileen Hoosan have raised their children and grandchildren in their public housing home with a wide yard and a carefully tended garden.
Geoff Shaw is a decorated war veteran who stay in the camp even so this means he cannot have a beer with his friends in his garden.
Should he too leave his home to please those who really do not understand family ties and culture?

She can if she likes, but why not an Irishwoman?

So why call her an Aboriginal Councillor? This is my question.

With great respect I would like to ask why Jacinta is an Aboriginal Councillor?
I believe she is a representative of the all community of Alice Springs.
To tell she is an Aboriginal Councillor is an insult to the other white yellow brindle who had voted for her.
A Councillor is elected on his/her work/merit not on his/her ethnicity.

Sue, I have respect for homosexuals who come in the open (I have some in my family and a lot of friends).
But we talking only of equality for heterosexuality and homosexuality. In this case why ignoring bisexuality?
To be a heterosexual man or woman means having a personally significant and meaningful romantic and/or sexual attraction primarily to adults of the opposite sex.
To be a homosexual man or woman means having a personally significant and meaningful romantic and/or sexual attraction primarily to adults of the same sex
To be a bisexual man or woman means having a personally significant and meaningful romantic and/or sexual attraction to both adult males and females, equally attracted to both sexes.

To my knowledge, all Australian Federal and State Parliaments and Legislative Assemblies open in prayer – with most using the Lord’s Prayer Ergo Australia is a Christian country.
If the law of marriage is to be changed so the Australian Constitution
Australia’s legal system and institutions, while being secular in nature, also draw heavily on Christian ethics and morality, best illustrated by the 10 commandments and the fact that, for years, it was customary for those involved in trials to swear on the Bible.
The constitution and other laws and policies protect religious freedom and, in practice, the government generally enforced these protections.
However the major religions of Australia : Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Taoism condemned homosexuality
I think our politicians should first change Constitution and subsequent laws instead of wasting tax payer’s money on a referendum.
We have the Yes and the No who are disturbing our peace. We should may be taking model on the The 1789 Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen which is considered by legal authorities to have equal legal standing with the Constitution of France, which states: “No one may be questioned about his opinions, [and the] same [for] religious [opinions], provided that their manifestation does not trouble the public order established by the law.”

Bruce: The argument that “every other western country has embraced SSM so jump on board” is similar to the argument teenagers use on their parents. However a good parent will answer: You are not everybody else.
