The righteousness of some religious leaders makes me really angry sometimes. The West Australian today reports that Perth Catholic Archbishop Barry Hickey claimes that child abuse and neglect are rising because of unstable de facto and same-sex relationships.
I am not aware of any reports from the police commissioner or child support agencies that back the Archbishop’s claims. He must have read it in the bible then. Thank God some of the followers of religious leaders like Hickey are more realistic and less judgmental than the Archbishop is.
Just a correction to an earlier post on this blog about the 100% EQUALITY Q&A at The Loft-Upstairs at Little Creatures in Fremantle’s Fishing Boat Harbour. The event is on SATURDAY June 25, not as previously posted on Friday the 24th. Greens Lynn McLaren will be in charge of the procedures while the panel members are Rodney Croome, Shelley Argent, Daniel Witthaus and Brian Greig.
Before you come over to The Loft, join the WELCOME PARTY FOR REFUGEES at King’s Square from 1pm!
