Episode 128 – Book Burning, Pirates and Dangerous Bubbles

The only Australian podcast to successfully combine book burning, wind farm safety, pirates and bubbles into a compelling 80 minute explanation of recent events in Australia and the direction we are heading.

2:46 Scott Morrison is as mad as hell about the mocking of Christians and he is not going to take it anymore. If he is serious about this he needs to check out the Book of Mormon.

9:12 Freedom For Faith are gathering their resources. We hope the secular forces are doing the same.

11:04 The ALRC did a report on religious freedom only 2 years ago.

12:09 Fahrenheit 451. In that book, censorship came from the bottom up and the same could be said about modern society. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. When it comes to censorship, one might say that the road to thought and speech control is paved by people trying to protect other people’s feelings.

18:17 The Shoppies Union has agreed to an enterprise agreement with Woolworths which probably allows for a wage below the award but the amount is secret.

27:08 Elderly suicide statistics are alarming and opponents of Assisted Dying Legislation must recognise it happens.

28:47 A man refused to vote because to do so would leave him feeling morally corrupt and a magistrate accepted the argument.

30:37 The SA power crisis in a nutshell.

35:33 Kenyan atheists award prizes for failing religious studies exams.

35:54 Aaron Baddeley is a Christian golfer.

40:20 So now we have a situation whereby kids’ wheelie shoes are banned, but six-inch knives are fine ­– provided they’re strapped to a Sikh. Welcome to the crazy world of religious privilege.

43:21 Despite the efforts of women who are crying out for fairer treatment, UNESCO continues unabated to award its World Heritage Status to religious sites that discriminate on the basis of gender. We applaud the Japanese protester.

47:04 Pirate society and chicken breeding and the evolution of humans.

55:08 A frightening explanation as to why our economy is a house of cards. As a whole, the Australian economy has grown through a property bubble inflating on top of a mining bubble, built on top of a commodities bubble, driven by a China bubble.
