It annoys me when they call the honourable scumbags honourable.

I suppose eventually all in the LGBTIQ+ community and its supporters will come to realise that the majority of Australians just desire to live an uncomplicated life sharing it with their family, friends and colleagues and do not appreciate many of their words ( mother / birthing parent  etc) and traditions (eg. Australia Day ) being hijacked and threatened in the name of equality and diversity and acceptance by a small number of activists and groups.
The bombardment of our lives by various activists need to stop, as rather than uniting Australians, it is ripping its citizens apart.

I went to a Catholic school with a church and got the full Christian ''experience''. A few of my friends got the extras. My sister's best friend's mother had an affair with the priest. She later got divorced and moved in with the priest who was forced to leave the church.

Made me question the power of prayer bigly.

As I previously mentioned I have never being baptised and  I am agnostic, so I am not defending the Catholic church, however regarding that priest marrying the sister of your best friend's mother I suppose in every barrel of apples there is always one or two which are rotten.
Where the Catholic church fails in my opinion, is the rule of celibacy for priests and being unable to marry.

 Our local married priest was having an affair with the Sunday school teacher, while sermonising about not stealing another man's wife. We caught them passionately kissing, behind the vestry.

 I think church buildings are wonderful, but those running them are mostly hypocrites. 

 Ouch

Our local priest was a VERY red head.  Every good catholic family in town had a red headed child.

This is by way of being a book review. 

Kevin Donnelly’s book The Woke Dictonary has just become available, and I am in the middle of reading my copy now.

(When I finished reading, I’ll write a full-length review for The Spectator Australia.) 

This is a fully revised and expanded edition of Kevin’s earlier book A Politically Correct Dictionary and Guide (2019). 

It contains 352 definitions of very trendy, with-it, Woke expressions from “Abelism” to “Zie.” 

Kevin gives us definitions that let us know how the Woke warriors themselves understand these words, thus enabling us to see the real claims they are making—often hidden underneath their jargon words. 

The book also contains seven short articles by Kevin telling us where this movement came from, the sort of thinking that lies behind it, what it says about race and gender, the role played by the thinking of Karl Marx, and (most importantly) what we can do about it. 

To give you a flavour of the book, here is what it says about the word “Woke” itself: 

“(Woke) Refers to being able to define oneself and see others and the wider world through a politically correct prism. The Urban Dictionary defines this as ‘A reference to how people should be aware in current affairs.’ As in ‘While you worried about whether you should order a decaf, free-trade, almond milk latte—China was building over 100 coal fired power stations, stay WOKE.’” This is a helpful book, warmly recommended.

You can find the book on Kevin Donnelly’s own website. Here’s the link: Books | Kevin Donnelly

 I have yet to meet anyone 'woke' out of this joint.

 The average person doesn't even know what 'woke' is.
