Hmmm, common sense spoken in Russian, the English speaking world has lost its way of course, English being a maleable language where words the marriage can be redefined at will and gender is a social construct
Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and all Russia has come vigorously against “liberal” anthropocentric philosophies.
“The issue is not those pinpricks that theomachists are trying to inflict on the body of the Church through their various actions. The issue is the future of the world,” the Patriarch said at the 21st International Christmas Conference in Moscow on Thursday.
Mankind would not survive without the moral values “that God put into human nature,” he said.
Nor would it survive if it goes for the “liberal concept” that each human being is “an alpha and omega, that he is authorized to decide what is good and what is evil, that he can not only decide on his own future but also has the right to exercise any influence he likes on the world surrounding him,” the Patriarch said.
“What the Church does today with support from its numerous allies – intellectuals, teachers and so on – means accomplishing the main task that faces people, the task of preserving human civilization,” he said.
And even more common sense from Russia as they are likely to ban anyone promoting homosexuality to children.
The Duma passed the bill in the first of three readings by 388 votes to one, and applause rippled through the chamber. “We live in Russia, not Sodom and Gomorrah,” United Russia deputy Dmitry Sablin said before the vote. “Russia is a thousands-years-old country founded on its own traditional values – the protection of which is dearer to me than even oil and gas.”
The law targets those who promote homosexuality to children, and is designed to bolster family values, according to the MPs who proposed it.
Similar legislation has been passed in several Russian regions over the past two years, including the city of St Petersburg, and now the bill looks set to take hold nationwide. The law envisages fines of up to 5,000 roubles (£100) for individuals, 50,000 (£1,000) for public officials and 500,000 roubles (£10,000) for organisations who are found to be engaging in gay propaganda.
The law will forbid “holding visual events with the participation of homosexuals in places accessible to children”, as well as “approval of homosexual links on television or radio during times when children could be watching”.
Which is as it should be. I have nothing against adults doing whatever they like, but promoting it to children is not on; especially with the high rates of drug abuse, suicide, depression, and disease that characterise the gay lifestyle. Not to mention a lower lifespan. Why should children be subjected to that?
Since the November conference, writers at The Standard have demanded that despite Mr Shearer having the overwhelming support of caucus – and well above the 60% threshold required for him to automatically keep his job – he should put his leadership to a vote of party members and union affiliates this February.
To pressure him, a false rumour was spread in recent days that Mr Shearer planned to announce this weekend a membership and union vote. The motivation is because most Standardistas are confident he would lose.
Mr Shearer has a big speech this weekend. He would be well advised to throw some red meat to his far left to settle them down a bit. But the subversion by Mr Cunliffe’s supporters will continue all year. There is another meltdown ahead.
And that was written before last night’s blowtorches were lit.
Fletch – I have nothing against adults doing whatever they like, but promoting it [homosexuality] to children is not on; especially with the high rates of drug abuse, suicide, depression, and disease that characterise the gay lifestyle. Not to mention a lower lifespan. Why should children be subjected to that?
You’d tend to be against gay adoption then, Fletch, which is what the gay marriage bill is just pre-runner?
Yes, I would be against gay adoption.
The Spanish did an in-depth look at all the different studies a few years back and concluded that it was not a good idea.
In light of a pending vote in the Spanish Senate on same-sex marriage HazteOir, together with the Spanish Forum for the Family and the Institute for Family Policy, has published and distributed an in-depth report on the effects that being raised by same-sex parents has on a child. The report, entitled “Report on Infantile Development in Same-Sex Couples” and available only in Spanish at this time, gathers and compares information from a vast number of studies carried out on the issue.
HazteOir, concerned by the apparent unquestioning acceptance in Spain of homosexual adoption, hopes that the wide array of information provided in the report and its extensive bibliography will prove to the Senate that homosexual parentage is harmful for children.
The president of HazteOir stated, in light of the findings of the report: “In no way can a couple of persons of the same sex be judged suitable for adopting a child. Considering the findings of this vast bibliography we are obliged to protect the minor and say that same-sex couples must not be allowed to adopt children.”
The report contests that the majority of the studies carried out which have concluded in favour of same-sex parenthood betray an egregious lack of scientific rigour. Most of the studies show a strong bias to one side.
To prove this the report analyzes the nature of the individuals who have been responsible for the various studies carried out thus far, demonstrating that the vast majority are either homosexuals themselves, or active in the gay-rights movement. Into this category fall all six of the six most prominent psychologists of the American Psychological Association, which, unsurprisingly is one of the organizations most strongly and vocally in favour of homosexual adoption.
In compiling and comparing the available data from these studies, as well as more objective studies, the team of first-class psychologists and sociologists which penned the HazteOir report have noted prominent and disturbing trends.
Among children raised by same-sex couples, the report notes a significant increase in low self-esteem, stress, confusion regarding sexual identity, an increase in mental illness, drug use, promiscuity, STD’s, and homosexual behaviour, amongst others. Furthermore, the report shows that statistics have brought to light the fact that same-sex relationships betray a much higher instance of separation and break-up than heterosexual relationships, increasing the likelihood that the child will experience familial instability.
The Spanish Association of Pediatrics firmly backs up the findings of the report, stating that a “family nucleus with two fathers or two mothers is clearly dangerous for the child”.
Grant Spencer indicated the bank was considering measures to regulate bank lending and reduce the risk of a housing bubble, with a public consultation document to be released in March. One of the more controversial measures could involve the introduction of loan value ratio restrictions which would limit the ability of banks to lend buyers up to 100 per cent of a property’s value.
The banks. lawyers and their customers are and will always be smarter than the rule makers. There will be plenty of ways around this. Was before when 60% was the rule and will continue to be. Idiots in the asylum who think that rules govern commerce.
At the same time, Prime Minister John Key reiterated his Government’s determination to force councils to open up land for new houses, which it hopes will ease the pressure on record prices.
He effectively threatened to legislate if councils do not do what the Government wants in order to get more houses built more cheaply.
“If councils aren’t able to change their planning processes, then the Government would have to get a lot more proactive because we are very serious about resolving this issue.”
Councils planning processes are hide bound by the resource management Act tha Key has been promising for at least 6 years to change.
The man ain’t a leader he is a flake. The sooner he quits the better.
He can take one of those Air NZ planes along with the thousands of others who have left since he told us he was going to stop that happening. He has no idea at all, along with some many of his overated pumped over promtoed colleagues.
Mr Woodhouse yesterday became the first National Party MP to become a minister while living in the city. Others who were born in Dunedin had gone on in other electorates in New Zealand, in the days of first-past-the-post, to subsequently become ministers.
There have been three previous National MPs in the city – the late Sir James Barnes served two terms from the snap 1951 election until 1957, the late Richard Walls served one term, 1975-78, and Katherine Rich was a list MP from 1999 until 2008.
wat, is putting pornographic magazines in brown paper and up high on a shelf out of the reach of children also against free speech? or are you in favour of them being able to read these?
How about the censoring of movies, or the “R” rating of movies that prevent children from going to see them. Is that against free speech as well? The State has the right, nay, the responsibility of protecting our youngest members of society from adult perversions.
And comparing the actions of one state against another is a strawman argument. You may as well compare NZ’s laws against the laws of Iran (where homosexuals are hung). If Britain follows the path they are on now, we may end up with a civilisation such as that depicted in Brave New World.
“That’s a charming little group,” he said, pointing.
In a little grassy bay between tall clumps of Mediterranean heather, two children, a little boy of about seven and a little girl who might have been a year older, were playing, very gravely and with all the focussed attention of scientists intent on a labour of discovery, a rudimentary sexual game.
“Charming, charming!” the D.H.C. repeated sentimentally.
“Charming,” the boys politely agreed. But their smile was rather patronizing. They had put aside similar childish amusements too recently to be able to watch them now without a touch of contempt. Charming? but it was just a pair of kids fooling about; that was all. Just kids.
Then, turning to his students, “What I’m going to tell you now,” he said, “may sound incredible. But then, when you’re not accustomed to history, most facts about the past do sound incredible.”
He let out the amazing truth. For a very long period before the time of Our Ford, and even for some generations afterwards, erotic play between children had been regarded as abnormal (there was a roar of laughter); and not only abnormal, actually immoral (no!): and had therefore been rigorously suppressed.
A look of astonished incredulity appeared on the faces of his listeners. Poor little kids not allowed to amuse themselves? They could not believe it.
“Even adolescents,” the D.H.C. was saying, “even adolescents like yourselves …”
“Barring a little surreptitious auto-erotism and homosexuality–absolutely nothing.”
“In most cases, till they were over twenty years old.”
“Twenty years old?” echoed the students in a chorus of loud disbelief.
“Twenty,” the Director repeated. “I told you that you’d find it incredible.”
Good article in Canada Free Press about where Obama’s intentions toward the dismantling of the 2nd Amendment are leading America:
Tyranny is coming in America, despite the fact that more than half of her citizens are too deluded, arrogant, or stupid to see it. If Obama’s policy processes continue unchecked, America will experience cataclysmic civil unrest; again, unfathomable to most Americans, this is precisely what Obama intends.
The words of this President are so rife with fraud and deceit that good people simply cannot believe anyone appearing so benevolent could possibly be so bad. At this juncture I would ask the question, Do you believe that the President really wants to have an open and honest discussion with the American people about the “problem” of violence and the misuse of guns in crime?
Has he ever followed through on conducting an open and honest discussion with the American people about anything? So we have our answer.
A second question might be this: Do you believe that the President will alter his long-standing belief that no American should own a gun after this discussion is over? The third and final question, assuming the answers to the first two questions are “no,” is Might the training of American military and police in guerilla warfare techniques coupled with manuals in the “How to” of gun confiscation be an indicator of where this “discussion” is really going?
If the answer to that one is “yes,” then have Americans just been convinced into thinking that the President is “open” to changing his thinking, and is “transparent” enough not to have a hidden agenda?
Obama, with the eager cooperation of the American press and the anti-gun lobby, are creating the perception of Second Amendment proponents as manifestly evil. Not misguided, not wrong – but evil. As such, he will set the stage for all “reasonable” Americans to support the wholesale dismantling of the Second Amendment, and if this means wholesale firearms confiscation and the bloodshed to which this will no doubt give rise, so much the better. This will give him legitimacy in his move of declaring martial law – in fact, he will have “no choice,” so it will appear.
This will be, as we’ve seen in so many other nations, the move across the threshold into totalitarian rule. We must never forget that this is a person who grew up studying and admiring Mao, Lenin, Stalin, and Castro – men who murdered hundreds of millions in their ascent to total dominion over their respective nations. Just this week, it was reported that a former senior military staffer revealed Obama’s new litmus test for top military brass: Can they give the order to fire on American citizens?
This is about the Russian-Iran-Syria connection with China on the sidelines but on the side of that alliance. This is butting against the US-Israeli requirement to remove Syria to isolate and ultimately attack Iran. The UK and France are with the US. This won’t therefore go away but it can’t go forward, either.
I read a question on another blog about the cracked windscreen on a Dreamliner which is never mentioned, they only talk about the batteries. But he wondered if it maybe pointed to fuselage weaknesses. An interesting possibility I thought.
“The State has the right, nay, the responsibility of protecting our youngest members of society from adult perversions.”
The point remains that the state can and will also use such powers in ways you don’t approve of. The example being Britain where the same reasons you trot out are used to justify enforcing gay propaganda.
If gay propaganda ends up being forced on NZ school children you can have no complaint; proponents will just repeat your own words back to you: It’s just state creating a better society.
Great visualisation of the big US bank exposures to derivatives which shows just how toxic they are and also shows just how dangerous untrammelled greed is given that what has caused this mess, which will be socialised, is a relative pittance in donations to get law makers re-elected while a small group of people reap the absolutely massive profits, just look at the link. That’s why this happened. And yet the journos in the US or even in this country have never bothered to connect those dots have they. No, much better to talk about local celeb goings on. That’s much more relevant and important.
The Phoenix want to move from the Caketin to Newtown Park.
Are they insane!! It seats 1 000 or something and anyway it’s a piece of shit place for them to play. You might as well call fulltime on the Phoenix in Wellington now with that kind of suggestion coming from them.
Austria’s Turkish community said the model was based on Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul and that the accompanying figures depicted Asians and Orientals as people with “deceitful and criminal personalities.”
The Turkish Cultural Community of Austria released a statement calling for Lego to apologise for affronting religious and cultural feelings.
The anger was provoked by “Jabba’s Palace”, a model of the home of Jabba the Hutt from Lego’s Star Wars product range based on the blockbusting series of science fiction films.
um Hagia Sophia (Holy Wisdom in Greek) was built as a Christian Cathedral so why aren’t Christian’s religious and cultural feelings. affronted by the fact this fellow called it a Mosque?
Andy Murray finally beats the old man at a grand slam.
Who’s winning the final? Will Mr Aussie Open get off ‘Scot free’? Or will it be Murray in a hurry over the superb Serb?
If Murray wins… he’ll add the Aussie to his US Open win… a pattern emerges of winning everything else except Wimbledon…. and a delicious irony for the Brits. If he could only win the French as well going into Wimbledon… hey, it’s not unrealistic now. That would be agonizing… everything else but his ‘home’ venue.
Novak will destroy the Scotsman in straight sets. He is absolutely unstoppable at the moment (well until he bumps into Nadal on clay…)
As for the legendary Sonny Bill Williams (Who somewhat dubiously claims to be the greatest since Ali), my men in the know (boxing connections) tell me that Sonny wouldn’t have taken this fight unless some ‘arrangement’ had been made. The White Buffalo is reportedly strapped for cash..
Chain bar oil contains gum arabic which sticks to the moving parts as Griff pointed out. Nick down to your friendly farm supply store, eg Farmlands…..Aegis recycled oil is fairly cheap and IMHO as good as any.
WAITAKERE CITY – OLYMPICS 2020
In an attempt to influence the members of the international Olympic
committee on their choice of venue for the games in the year 2020, the
organisers of Waitakere City’s bid have already drawn up an itinerary and
schedule of events. A copy has been leaked and is reproduced below.
The Olympic flame will be ignited by a petrol bomb thrown by a native of the
city (preferably from the New Lynn area), wearing the traditional balaclava.
The flame will be contained in a large chip van situated on the roof
of the stadium.
In previous Olympic games, Waitakere’s competitors have not been
particularly successful. In order to redress the balance, some of the
events have been altered slightly to the advantage of local athletes.
100 METRES SPRINT.
Competitors will have to hold a video recorder and microwave oven (one in
each arm) and on the sound of the starting pistol, a police dog will be
released from a cage 10 yards behind the athletes.
100 METRES HURDLES.
As above but with added obstacles (ie. car bonnets, hedges, gardens,
fences, walls etc.).
Competitors in this event may choose the type of hammer (claw, sledge etc)
The winner will be the one who can cause the most grievous bodily harm
to members of the public within the time allowed.
Entrants will be asked to dispose of as much stolen silver and
jewellery as possible in 5 mins.
A strong challenge is expected from the local men in this event. The
first target will be a moving police van. In the second round,
competitors will aim at a post office clerk, bank teller or Securitas
style wages delivery man.
Entry to the boxing will be restricted to husband and wife teams, and will
take place on a Friday night. The husband will be given 15 pints of Lion Red
while the wife will be told not to make him any tea when he gets
home. The bout will then commence.
CYCLING TIME TRIALS.
Competitors will be asked to break into the Kelston Boy’s bike shed
and take an expensive mountain bike owned by some mummy’s boy from the
country on his first trip away from home. All against the clock.
As above but the bike will be owned by a visiting member of the Australian
rugby team, who will witness the theft.
Amended to include mugging, breaking and entering, flashing, joyriding and
A safe route has yet to be decided, but the competitors will be issued with
sharp sticks and bags with which to pick up litter on their way round the course.
Competitors will be thrown off a bridge over the Whau Creek. The first
three survivors back will decide the medals.
MENS 50KM WALK.
Unfortunately this will have to be cancelled as the police cannot guarantee
the safety of anyone walking the streets of Waitakere City.
Will now be held in an abandoned meat works, and will include carcass
vaulting and swinging from meat hooks.
All competitors will be graded on their ability to sway drunkenly to Metallica
Involves four competitors removing an appliance of their choice from a house
in New Lynn and getting back to Henderson using at least four stolen cars.
The rules will now specify that competitors must be topless and jelly will be involved.
Requires contestants to line up with steel baseball bats. The medal will be
awarded to the last man standing.
Will be decided by which contestant can get a hubcap off a Holden and
throw it to his mate the fastest.
The 500 metre skull will be changed to the 500 litre skull and promises to
be the most hotly contested event. Many, many, many athletes are currently in training.
THE CLOSING CEREMONY.
Entertainment will include formation rave-dancing by the members of the
Titirangi Health in the Community anti-drug campaigners, synchronised
rock throwing and music by the Henderson Community Choir. The Olympic
flame will be extinguished by someone dropping an old washing machine
onto it from the top floor of the block of flats next to the stadium.
The stadium will be then boarded up before the local athletes break into
it and remove all the copper piping and the central heating boiler.
Pollywog you over your little melt down then.?
Not by much I see you vocab has not improved in your break.
Here is the mainstream media on you little story from last year http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10848190..
I agree with you whites bashing a black guy is newsworthy unlike blacks bashing a white guy that is just normal
RRM, bit like the rockhounds who cut rocks with a diamond blade and use old oil/kero.
Use non flamable oil, like in transformers.
Oil is oil and it’s use is to lubricate and remove wear particles, hence oil change in an engine.
So chains wear out and can be replaced, the bar wears as well.
Use good new oil
The European debt crisis is threatening millions of jobs, undermining the common European currency and causing civil unrest. Now two researchers have identified another disturbing consequence: the crisis may be skewing the results of the annual Eurovision Song Contest.
