News Flash! (Friday 22 June 2012)

Statistics derived from the most recent Census and released from the Australian Bureau of Statistics today indicate that, after Roman Catholicism, the next popular declaration of belief is "No Religion" in Australia.

That category, I presume, would be made up of Atheists and Agnostics.

It is a sign of declension rather than growth that Anglican/Church of England/Episcopalian has lost its place as second to the Roman Catholics.

Something is wrong and we know part of it.

Gee, totally surprised. I really was caught out on that stat. I betcha ol' Peter and his mates put a spin on that one. I reckon it's all down to global warming. Don't know how, but I just know it.

Speaking of flaky science, did you catch Moore's former philosophy (yeh, right!) lecturer Keith Mascord's piece in the Sydney Morning Homosexual this week. What a laugh. He reckons we ought to toss out all those proscriptions against homosexuality because science, wait for it, wait for it, proves (that's right, p-r-o-v-e-s) homosexuality is not a matter of choice.

Well, all I can say is, that obviously follows from someone who believes that evolution is true, that God "used"(?) evolution to, ahh, create(?). If God didn't really create, as evolution states, then of course, he didn't make homosexuals homosexuals, nature did, sorry Nature.

I've had a look at some of the allegedly Calvinist and so-called Evangelical respondents to Keith Mascord's blog on the subject and not one of them addresses the long held Calvinist doctrine of Original Sin.

Notwithstanding the lack of watertight case for people being born homosexual if the evidence was produced there is a glaring response a Calvinist would be obliged to tender.

Under their Calvinist doctrine, every person is born a sinner (having been in Adam when he rebelled) so, does that mean that because a person is born a sinner it is okay for them to go on sinning through life and that the Church should endorse that?

The answer is an emphatic NO because the Word of God makes it clear that we should not sin.

Similarly a person born homosexual should not commit homosexual acts because the Word of God makes it clear that we should not commit homosexual acts.

Instead of upholding their Evangelical roots the respondents expose their drift into a theological wilderness and of no help to anyone.
