Promoting interracial marriage – Why?

Has anyone notice the increasing number of television advertisements featuring a black male (usually of African appearance) coupled with a lily white female? I have never seen a black female with a white man. Nor have I seen an Asian male coupled to a black women. Or any other racial coupling, for that matter.

But let me leave the limited racial mix aside. I want to know what the purpose is of promoting interracial marriage.

I suggest Dave Cullen has the answer in one of his videos, Woke Online Dating. He talks about dating but his explanation is just as relevant to marriage.

More evidence of the collapse of reason in Western Society.

Julia Yost’s review of ‘Cardinal’

Julia Yost’s excellent 2017 review of Louise Milligan’s book Cardinal: The Rise and Fall of George Pell is worth another look.

George Cardinal Pell was charged last week with multiple counts of sexual abuse of children. He currently resides in Rome, tasked with cleaning up the Vatican finances. In the coming weeks he will fly to his native Australia, where he vows to fight all charges. His successor in the see of Sydney, Archbishop Anthony Fisher, advises letting the justice system take its course.

Australian civil authorities have yet to announce the number and nature of the offenses with which Pell is charged. But allegations against Pell have been accumulating for years. He stands publicly accused of complicity in a sex abuse coverup in the diocese of Ballarat in the 1970s and early 1980s; complicity in a sex abuse coverup in the archdiocese of Melbourne in the late 1980s and 1990s; and various counts of child molestation, assault, and indecent exposure, from 1961 through 1997.

A summary of the crimes of Carl Beech

In his latest Media Watch Dog report (No.467), Gerard Henderson provides a summary of Carl Beech’s crimes:

A SUMMARY OF THE CRIMES OF CARL BEECH (aka “NICK”) – FANTASIST & LIAR RE HISTORICAL CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE

MWD readers are well aware about the case of “Nick” – later to be revealed as Carl Beech.  In late October 2012, Nick claimed that – when a boy – he had been sexually abused by a number of high profile British men.  Some of the alleged offenders were living – others (like former prime minister Edward Heath) were dead.

Nick’s allegations led to a situation where police in Britain adopted a policy of believing the complainant in cases of historical child sexual abuse.  This was followed by a practice of calling a complainant a “victim” – before the alleged offender was found guilty.  These matters are also relevant in Australia.

The stunning parallels with the Pell conviction

Carl Beech – the plausibility of liars and the paucity of proof

Matthew Scott, The Guardian UK

‘It was left to a BBC Panorama team and Northumbria police to uncover the evidence that Beech was a cunning liar.’

The Met was right to listen to his allegations. Its mistake was not to investigate themSun 28 Jul 2019 04.07 AEST

Carl Beech’s QC, Collingwood Thompson, was faced with a monumentally difficult task when, just before lunch on Friday, he rose to mitigate for the recently convicted serial child abuse accuser. One point he made was that the Metropolitan police policy that “complainants will be believed has had an influence on this whole case. With another approach, Mr Beech’s allegations would have been dismissed.”

There is no harder task in advocacy than mitigating after a jury has convicted your client of every count on the indictment, and I am reluctant to criticise Mr Thompson, but the argument that the police should not have been so stupid as to take Beech seriously was probably best left to others.

Nevertheless, it was entirely correct. Beech would never have achieved such notoriety and caused such damage had many others, who should have known better, not believed him, or at least pretended to do so.

The absurdity of the case against Cardinal Pell

There have been many articles and videos demonstrating the absurdity (and injustice) of Cardinal Pell’s conviction, but none encapsulates that absurdity more succinctly than that by veteran journalist John Sylvester in Melbourne’s Age.

‘Pell was found guilty beyond reasonable doubt on the uncorroborated evidence of one witness, without forensic evidence, a pattern of behaviour or a confession.

‘It is a matter of public record that it is rare to run a case on the word of one witness, let alone gain a conviction.’

George Pell – Australia’s first Catholic martyr

If you were in a Catholic school in the 1950s, you would have been taught about the heroic saints, men and women, who preferred death to the denial of their faith. Indeed, the examples of the saints and martyrs were a primary vehicle for teaching pupils what their faith was really about. You have to be moved to the core to prefer to die rather than give up what you believe in. The saints and martyrs were moved to the core because they accepted the revelation that Jesus Christ was God-made-Man, ‘the way, the truth and the life’. They accepted St Peter’s declaration that Jesus was ‘the Christ, son of the living God’ (Matt. 16:16).

The first martyrs were those of the Roman persecutions, people of faith who submitted to the tearing jaws of wild beasts rather than carry out the act of offering a small sacrifice to the multitude of Roman Gods. Centuries later, much closer to Australian society, were the martyrs of the English Reformation who submitted to the barbaric penalty of hanging, drawing and quartering rather than condone Henry VIII’s trashing of key elements of Catholic teaching.

The goals of the PC class

Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association claimed in an circularized email that those currently calling themselves ‘progressive’ were actually regressive. They were regressive because they wanted to:

  • Maintain the right to kill unborn babies up until the moment of birth.
  • Embrace any sexual perversion and have society affirm it.
  • Dismantle capitalism and replace it with socialism or communism.
  • Abolish the family.
  • Centralize and expand state power and control.
  • Censor the speech of anyone who dares disagree with them.
  • Expunge any vestige of Christianity in America.

That pretty well applies to Australia. Indeed, the conquest of language is a necessary leftist goal.

What Made American Academia Great (and How It Was Destroyed)

BY GARRETT WARD SHELDON| JUNE 21ST, 2019

The processes and ideology destroying American universities described below by Professor emeritus Garrett Ward Sheldon of the University of Virginia are almost an exact parallel with the decline – or rather degeneration – of Australian universities.

Since retiring from the university, several people have asked if I miss it. I tell them I miss what it was, but not what it has become. Higher education in America has gone from being the best in the world to one of the most pathetic. Why? It’s hard to describe what academia was to me and to millions in the past. It was not just a job, but a way of life, and of Western Civilization; and I’m so close to it, that it’s hard to describe—like trying to describe one’s own mother (hence alma mater!).

But let me try. University life at its best was both the most serious, difficult, challenging and maddening existence; and yet, it was also the most exciting, lively, rewarding, and fun experience.

It was deadly serious because we constantly examined the most intense human issues: historical and personal tragedies; ethical dilemmas, philosophical complexities; theological mysteries; and scientific wonders. It was hard because it stretched you intellectually and emotionally, made you question everything and be changed by that knowledge. And it was difficult, because of the enormous workload and demands; assignments, exams, papers, presentations and seminars. I don’t know of another situation, except possibly the military during a war, where one could be tested so much.

INFILTRATION: THE PLOT TO DESTROY THE CHURCH FROM WITHIN
Taylor R Marshall
Crisis Publications
An imprint of Sophia Institute Press
Manchester, New Hampshire
Pub. 31 May 2019

Dr Taylor Marshall’s book Infiltration: The Plot to Destroy the Church from within aims to uncover the forces within the Catholic Church seeking its destruction. The destruction aimed for, though, is not obliteration. The Catholic Church is far too important as a moral and political power to obliterate. The destruction is in the form of a fundamental or ontological change, the change from one substance to its opposite, the change from the Church of Jesus Christ to the church of Lucifer, the Angel of Light and the Prince of Darkness. It is crucial to understand that the forces of Lucifer are people and ideas. Some agents are conscious and purposeful in their subversion. Others, naive or self-deceived or easily led, drive those ideas. If I were to name the outstanding feature of Dr Marshall’s book, I would say it’s the revelation of those people of influence, many of good will, who unwittingly or blindly clear the way for those intent on destroying the Church as it is and ever has been.

Some concrete problems with gender theory

A growing number of feminists are raising objections to the concrete outcomes of transgenderism.

Say two physically fit biological 17-year-old males decide they’re girls. Their decision, we are told, is not to be disputed. Having switched to the female gender, they would go with the girls in sporting contests. That’s the logical outcome of gender theory.

How would biological female athletes of the same age feel about being thrashed by the biologically male girls? Not great, I imagine.

Just such a case was reported by the Washington Times under the heading, Transgender sprinters finish 1st, 2nd at Connecticut girls indoor track championships.

You have to feel sorry for the biologically female girls who spent weeks training for the sport meet only to suffer disadvantages feminists were all about removing.
