Bobby Brown believes he is 'mainstream', cardinal Pell represents "extreme right"

Bob Brown wouldn’t know mainstream Christian thinking if it came up to bite him in the dick. Don’t you  just love how gay rights, pro-choice, and other assorted activists who spend their time  besmirching Christianity always claim to know what Christianity is really about?

Until today, I was under the impression that Bob Brown and his motley crew of Stalinist freaks represented the lunatic fringe. Now he claims to represent the ‘mainstream’. Go figure!

Then of course, Bobby doesn’t go anywhere without jumping on his hobby horse:

“the archbishop’s views on gay marriage are “discriminatory and biased”.

Australia’s Catholic leader Cardinal George Pell has taken up the rhetoric of the extreme right and his views do not represent mainstream Christian thinking, Greens leader Bob Brown says.


Senator Brown says Australian Greens’ policies are much closer to mainstream Christian ideals than the Sydney Archbishop’s ideas.

He was responding to criticism of the Greens by Cardinal Pell in an opinion piece published in News Ltd newspapers on Sunday.

Cardinal Pell wrote the Greens are hostile to the notion of the family and the party would allow marriage regardless of sexuality or gender. He said the Greens were “thoroughly anti-Christian”.

Senator Brown, in reply, said Cardinal Pell’s “anti-Christian” claim was a lie, and that he had fallen out of touch with his people.

“The good archbishop has forgotten the ninth commandment, which is `thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbour’,” Senator Brown told AAP on Sunday.

“He’s lost the ethic of the golden rule and the Greens have kept it. The Greens are much closer to mainstream Christian thinking than Cardinal Pell. That’s why he’s not standing for election and I am.”

The Catholics the senator spoke to support an end to discrimination, he said.

“They support compassion to asylum seekers and they support the BER (Building the Education Revolution) scheme, like the Greens do,” he said. “Cardinal Pell opposes those things.”

Senator Brown said the archbishop’s views on gay marriage were “discriminatory and biased”.

“The majority of Catholics support equality in marriage (as do) the majority of Christians in Australia,” he said.

“The Greens are with the majority but both the big parties, like Cardinal Pell, are opposed to 21st century majority thinking in Australia.

“He’s lost contact with his own voters … his own Catholic majority in this country.”

In his article, Cardinal Pell wrote the Greens’ once claimed that humans are simply another smarter animal – an ethic designed to replace Judeo-Christianity.

He said some Greens are “like watermelons, green outside and red inside”.

“A number were Stalinists, supporting Soviet oppression,” he wrote.

Senator Brown said Cardinal Pell had “taken up the rhetoric of the extreme right in Australia”.

“That is not new but he has become very politically active against the compassion and the environmental commonsense of the Greens policies,” he said.

  1. Can’t we just dump Bob ‘down’ Brown with the Taliban. I’d gladly put money towards the air fare. Hey we don’t even have to land him in Afghanistan we could jettison the idiot over their territory.

  2. “Bob Brown wouldn’t know mainstream Christian thinking if it came up to bite him in the dick. Don’t you just love how gay rights, pro-choice, and other assorted activists who spend their time besmirching Christianity always claim to know what Christianity is really about?”

    Well put indeed, its part of the Alinsky Methodology (Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals) http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=19735

  3. ““the archbishop’s views on gay marriage are “discriminatory and biased”.
    Clearly Bob and his Boyfriend Paul’s views on Heterosexuality are “discriminatory and biased” by virtue of them rejecting Heterosexuality an the natural order of nature and life.

  4. Bob knows what “mainstream Christian thinking” is, but rejects discussion of Australia’s growing muslim population as racist.

    Not all the Greens are apparently so deluded by the allahphiles’ charms:

    [I feel it was wrong of Senator Bob Brown to call Kevin Andrews a racist because he has called for a discussion about Australia’s growing Muslim population. Firstly, because Islam is NOT a race, but an idealogy, and secondly because Kevin Andrews is only trying to promote discussion – not trying to promote hatred.

    I have been an ardent observer of the impact that Islam is having around the world since the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centre. And it concerns me that Bob Brown is doing to Australia what so many self-righteous “liberals” have already done to Europe. For example, the Netherlands is having huge social problems with the growing muslim population to the point that if you say anything about Islam then you’re likely to get killed. In France you can’t say anything about Islam’s barbaric rituals in defence of animal rights without being branded a racist and even getting fined for same. We all know what happens if you draw a cartoon about Mohammad. Fatwah.]

    Bob Brown sticks with safe targets, with little to fear from a fatwah.
    Mainstream (and sidestream) islam wouldn’t think too highly of Bob, and might lop his head off when the suppressed “racist” debate permits Catmeat & Co to implement the sharia laws.

  5. “We all know what happens if you draw a cartoon about Mohammad. Fatwah.”

    “We all know”.

    And yet, nothing is done about the Muselmanic invasion.

    We are ruled by some of the worst cowards in human history.

  6. * We are ruled by some of the worst cowards in human history.

    While most of us are concerned with the important things of life, like who won Masterchef.
