I took this photo while I walking through Box Hill Centro. I don’t have a big problem with animal rights, and have no problem with the bank putting these posters up. This is not a rant against either of those two parties. I come in peace.
I have some observations to make about another issue.
1. There are about 250 babies killed by medical professionals in Australia . . . each day. That equates to 80,000-90,000 abortions a year. In Australia. Modern, civilised, “progressive” Australia.
2. Many of those abortions were government funded, through Medicare. Your tax money goes towards the killing of babies, and the active promotion of abortion. Our nation is corporately complicit in this.
3. If the poster above had a premature baby being held by a doctor, or a mother, but still said “Give me a voice”, it would be condemned as insensitive, politically incorrect and deceitful. There is no way that a bank would display that poster.
4. We care more about animals than human babies.
5. I conclude that we are a very confused, and morally corrupt generation.
God says we are not to murder. Our nation, is complicit in the murders the most helpless and vulnerable in our society. God have mercy!
At one of our church’s recent corporate prayer meeting, we prayed for our nation. We prayed that the government would not legalise gay marriage, that the horrific practise of abortion would cease. More broadly, we prayed that our nation’s slide toward paganism would be slowed. Why do we pray for these things? Why do we need to contend for social, moral, and political issues? I was reminded of one of my favourite quotes from the great J. Gresham Machen. He explains an important reason why Christians must contend for these sorts of issues:
“We are all agreed that at least one great function of the Church is the conversion of individual men. The missionary movement is the great religious movement of our day. Now it is perfectly true that men must Continue reading

During the past couple of weeks, two news reports from the scientific community have me wondering.
The first and most shocking comes from a position paper published by two science “ethicists” here in Australia, stating that “newborn babies ‘aren’t people’ and it is therefore acceptable to kill them”. Authors Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva, both from the University of Melbourne, suggest that “after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where the law allows abortion, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.” Continue reading
