“Father” Bower, 51,Â Anglican
priest Â kaputnik at Mann Street, Gosford,Â is using his pulpit and the internet to flaunt his moral supremacy and his multicultural kumbaya Â delusions.Â Needless to mention that his “church” is a political circus for redistribution, “social justice”, homo-marriage, open borders and ‘climate change’, or , if you prefer, ‘climate justice’.
When the time comes, “our Muslim friends’ will show him the real meaning of Ramadan.

TheÂ New York TimesÂ gets all bossy with us: (Tim Blair)
Australia is pursuing draconian measures to deter people without visas from entering the country by boat. In doing so, it is failing in its obligation under international accords to protect refugees fleeing persecution …
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, AntÃ³nio Guterres, said recently thatÂ “something strange happens”Â in the minds of Australians when it comes to asylum seekers who arrive by boat without a visa.
This is absurdly disingenuous. Economic opportunists and Islamic terrorists commonlyÂ discardÂ their passports in order to make background checks more difficult, thereby improving their chances of gaining residency as genuine refugees. It isn’t strange at all that Australians reject this. Does theÂ New York TimesÂ allow unknown and unidentified strangers to enter its building and stroll around on its editorial floors? If someone attempted to do so, would “something strange” happen, such as security or police throwing the intruder out?
The New York Times article is a disgraceful interference in another country’s affairs by the USA.Â . Look at the composition of the UNHRC and any sane person would tear up that treaty in a heartbeat. How many hypocritical, despotic third world Â nations do we need to tell us how human we are? All the western countries should form their own international community and leave the UN to the losers.
It’s odd that we hear so much about Australia’s obligation to protect refugees fleeing persecution, but so little about asylum seekers’ obligation to seek protection in the nearest stable country.
People who pre-book flights over several stable countries, then dump their passports and pay large sums for sea passage to Australia, are not refugees fleeing persecution.
What sort of media do we have in this country where people of whom we know nothing about are reflexively labelled ‘asylum seekers’ simply because they happen to be in a boat off our coast? It’s not as if the term asylum seeker is a neutral one. It isn’t! It’s a highly emotive term. For years our media has been actively on knowingly lying to us. What sort of journaillie arrives at a conclusion and states a fact without Â knowledge or evidence? Surely, this is outrageous. But this is the new normal…
From another commenter:
In another twist, and contrary to what the bleeding hearts would have you believe, even the UN refuge convention acknowledges that entering a country without proper documentation is illegal. It goes on to say that refugees may not be punished for entering a country illegally, but their arrival is still illegal. Australia is quite within its rights to detain people who have committed an offence and decide what penalty should apply. Once their cases are determined, the penalties applied are consistent with the convention.
Domestically, Australian law enforcement agencies have an obligation to uphold the law. Internationally, Australia has an obligation to disrupt and suppress the activities of criminal syndicates by whatever lawful means it has at its disposal. Attacking people-smugglers by making their product unsaleable seems like a pretty good strategy.
