Say NO to Chaplains: new campaign launched! #NSCP #StopNSCP

Since the introduction of the National School Chaplaincy Program by the Howard government, close to half a billion dollars has been spent on largely unqualified chaplains, while real pastoral care from professional counsellors is pitifully thin on the ground. Furthermore, the NSCP may be illegal. The constitution prohibits religious tests for public office, and yet [...]

I would love to believe that when I die I will live again, that some thinking, feeling, remembering part of me will continue. But much as I want to believe that, and despite the ancient and worldwide cultural traditions that assert an afterlife, I know of nothing to suggest that it is more than wishful [...]

My New Year’s Resolution: Be A Proud Creationist

GOTTA LOVE a captive audience: Throngs at Blues Point for NYE This was the scene in the late afternoon of New Year’s Eve 2008 at Blues Point on Sydney Harbour, just one of dozens of popular vantage points around Port Jackson.
