  1. Why cannot guys like you ever let the identity politics go to rest?

    I imagine that most of your problems are imagined and you will refuse to acknowledge this.

    True Op Ed Identity Politics Weekly continues unabated.

    • Thanks for reading as always Chrissy. You might finally have some joy in your life as we will be publishing a few big and interesting journalistic investigations in coming days. Thank you so much for being such an avid reader of ours. Even though it seems it’s a real love-hate thing for you. Enjoy the sunshine

      • You display the utter lack of professionalism that bloggers pretending to be investigative journalists always possess in spades.

        I checked your site; some massive revelations have been made, right?

        I notice you cannot refute what I say, as what I say is true.

        I suppose you want me arrested for upsetting your egg shell thin emotional sensibilities, right?

  2. I am in my 70s now. Growing up, I had to endure all manner of attempted religious indoctrination through Sunday School, church, and a church school. None of these people ever asked my permission.
    From the beginning, I was resistant to dogma, and grew up thinking that all organised religion is false. I went on to become a research scientist with a significant publication record in Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics.
    Our species Homo sapiens originated more than 300,000 years ago, and in that time there would have been countless different spiritual and religious concepts. How anyone can say that a particular one is correct and all the rest are wrong utterly defies logic. Occam’s Razor, and the hard, cold light of science and reason indicate, to the contrary, that none of them can be true in their intricate and usually absurd detail.
    The extensive persecution of homosexuals based on Judaeo-Christian “beliefs” was rife in Australia and throughout the Western world when I was young. We have come a long way, but it is a shame to see religious adherents continuing an irrational war against something they do not even understand in scientific and medical terms, instead clinging to bizarre beliefs that predate the modern era.
