The campaign to abolish religious exemptions...

Predictably, the case of lesbians who claimed to want to send a child under their guardianship to a catholic school has sparked a call to remove religious exemptions from anti-discrimination laws.

What a beautifully stage-managed little shot in this campaign.

Expect more, particularly given the naivety or worse of certain of our bishops, whose words and actions play into the homosexual lobby's hands.

This is the next big battle.

We need to get organised, and smart, now.

Over on Fr Z there is a video portrayal of martyrdom in Spain in the 20th century. One wonders how far we are from this now.

Let's have a counter-campaign for a national broadcaster paid for by our taxes that is more than an organ of the Green-stalinist lumpenintelligentsia from Balmain-Glebe. (And unlike Canberra Observer, I'm an old Labor voter by upbringing and inclination.)

Can you hear the sounds of the chisels? Chip ... chip ... chip ... until one day the dam caves in, the pressure of the water pressing against the weakness till it gives.

Anthony, so true. Female altar servers and communion in the hand are two examples of the chip, chip, chipping. I wonder if the Australian Bishops Conference will cave.

I am of the opinion that it is "or worse" rather than naivety. Cardinal Sean O'Malley set a president when he overruled a school's decision not to admit a child living with a same sex couple.
