@ John Bell: I didn’t say that. Actually I just pointed out that that is what Mr Raass said. He said it and then promotes discrimination? Weird.

You can vote No with love: Alice priest
John Bell: If you call my comment firing shots then I don’t think you know what a respectful argument means.
I was just trying to show the hypocrisy in Mr Raass’s argument. He said the church disavows unjust discrimination, and also discriminating against homosexuals is a great moral evil.
He says that but then promotes discrimination. Can you see the hypocrisy?
I would like some clarification from him as to whether he is for or against discrimination. As to his response to the survey he can and will do whatever way he likes.


You can vote No with love: Alice priest
“The church disavows all forms of unjust discrimination” but promotes discrimination.
“Any laws that discriminate against homosexuals perpetrate a great moral evil that must be resisted.” So vote yes and end discriminatory laws.

The gallery drama: Will there be a happy ending?
It is important that an indigenous gallery / cultural centre have the support of Indigenous people but as to its location one would think that that decision should be mainly directed by apmereke-artweye and kwetungurle.
Under cultural protocols they are the ones with authority to speak for country. It is very well documented who they are. There seems to be little or no respect for, or consultation with them at present.

Unfortunately there is very little respect for elders, full stop. Arrernte elders and leaders put a full page ad in the paper inviting people to this re conciliation event, saw no councillors or pollies there. Catherine Satour sent an apology, though.


Problem kids: The whole town must help
Hmmmmm, I think Steve’s idea could be useful depending on how it is implemented.
One thing I think is important is that the staffing should be heavily weighted with people from the demographic for whom it is intended to affect.
Poverty is one of the drivers of antisocial behaviour, more jobs for privileged whitefellas will not address that issue.
