Just because a law exists in a statute or precedent does not make it right.
Psalm 94:20 speaks of “wicked rulers… who frame injustice by statute,” making a clear distinction between what is right, and what is law.
Most people resonate with that idea.
“Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matt 6:33)
It’s budget night. The election is about to be called.
The government couldn’t be happier about the timing, because many people vote with their hip-pocket.
I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore CHOOSE LIFE, that you and your offspring may live!
What started as a Bill to harmonise Tasmanian laws with the federal change to the definition of marriage has become the eye of the gender ideology storm.
There are two main issues currently on the agenda in WA’s parliament.

Last week the Victorian Labor government announced that they would consider removing the recital of the Lord’s Prayer before parliament deliberates.

"I’ve had the privilege of being able to operate on little babies that were 25, 26, 27, 28 weeks’ gestation, and I can guarantee you they can feel. They can react.
