Religion: Who Do You Think You Are!

It seems that Catholic church is still fighting kicking and screaming being taken into the modern world...

Or, from another, slightly less confrontational, angle they seem to want to have their cake and eat it, too. Cake in this case being taxpayer money they receive in return for their (tax exempt!) properties being used in Australian elections. Which cake may even be declared as just fine (or at least not criminal), but the accompanying refusal to cater for all the legal parties who take part and may want (and are allowed by law!) to display their posters is criminal - and in more ways than one. And so even if we decide to discount their opposition to Sex Party's materials (remember, Sex Party is a legal and legitimate political party in Australia) we are left with a Greenpeace activist thrown out (together with his material) on the basis of "ideological differences". Ideological differences! The whole freakin' (to use a baby word) parliamentary democracy idea is based on different parties (and different people) having "ideological differences". Were it not for that we might as well live in an absolutist monarchy. But then, Catholic church is an absolutist monarchy, and it's little wonder they yearn for all their host countries to become thus. Criminal!

And to Australians: fight now, or forever lose your freedom(s)...
