Comment on You can vote No with love: Alice priest by Evelyne Roullet.

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.”

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.
Can we have a legal bounding marriage of three people?

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.

Anzac Oval: hand it over, says NT Government
Anzac oval does not belong to the council, but to the ratepayers.
The council is only the representative of the residents, and have to bow to the wishes of the community.
The threat of compulsory acquisition of the land is a sign of weakness: “I will win at all costs rather that admit I was wrong.”
If the ratepayers are the landholders of the oval, we have the right to object on the grounds that we feel the proposal is better located elsewhere and that proper process has not been followed.
What a waste of time, energy, money. I believe this government, which tries to be in charge, could not run a business. It will be quite bankrupt.


Alcohol floor price may breach Australian Constitution
@ Russel Guy: The extra money does not go to help alcoholics, but put more in the coffers of bottle shops. [ED – The bottle shops, according to a spokesman for the Attorney General. Cheers, Erwin Chlanda, Editor.]
It was the same for down sizing the casks form four litres to two litres, because 2l + 2l may be = 4l but they are more expensive.
@ Local1: Ourcellar had no membership, I talked with them and was told to do my order by phone and I will receive my wine. I did it and am waiting. Paul (the agent) told me he was not aware of “mail-order suppliers are now required by the NT Government to obtain a permit and to adhere to the new floor price”.
OurCellar delivers to all parts of Australia except the following restricted dry zone postcodes: 4605, 4713, 4816, 4825, 4830, 4871, 4874, 4876, 4895.
I suppose my delivery will come from Darwin. Wait and see.

Dominico, I agree with your teacher: “Criticism is easy, and art is difficult.”
It is a philosophy I had adopted and used in my family and work life: Do not come to me with a complaint unless you come with a remedy.
The government has ideas based on collective responsibility, by which individuals who are part of such collectives to be responsible for other people’s actions which leads to collective punishment.
For me the notion of collective culpability seems to deny individual moral responsibility and free choices.
If adults want to kill themselves with alcohol and other drugs I will respect their wish. Why spending energy and money to save people who do not want to be saved?
Money, time and energy should be spend protecting innocents and not punish them.
My solution: Instead of dry areas and rehabilitation centers built a camp for addicts, where home deliveries will satisfy their needs until they run out of money, drop dead or want to change their ways.
Security should keep them in, and prevent visitors. I can hear the uproar, but no, I am not a Nazi, but like Evelyn Beatrice Hall wrote, I will say to them: “I disapprove of your lifestyle, but I will defend to the death your right to live it.”

No more cheap wine for cooking, therefore bye bye to a lot of good recipes!
Why the early harvest wine is not exempt from the mandated price of $1.30 per standard drink as it has less alcohol?
Can we still buy Christmas gourmet wine hamper online? Would online shops will have to advertise two prices: one for Australia, one for NT? This will not be good advertising for NT.
Oversea Amazon online has abandoned us because of the Australian demands: I cannot any longer buy French books, DVD music as there is no supplier in Australia.
Australia the land of the free? This is a joke.

The port yellow label disappeared of the shelves. This was supposed to fix the drinking problems.
Flagons followed. More drinking problems.
Intervention followed with the basic card: More drinking problems.
Restrictions and regulations with supply hours: More drinking problems.
Not so long ago, Aborigines could not drink alcohol. Soon nobody will be able to do so.
I have a question: If Alice is a restricted area could interstate travelers can have their vehicles taken by the police if they carry alcohol?
Would signs be erected on the Stuart highway to give warning?
