Vatican Vote Yes

Smoke Signals in the Vatican
It’s the dawn of a new era

Pope Benedict vacates the top job 
Gay Marriage endorsed by the Church  

Smoke Signals





After days of deliberation. indecision and Grey Smoke
The Vatican announce to the world via a White Smoke signal
They’ve chosen the successor to Pope Benedict

But they drew the line at embracing Gay Marriage
That was a bridge too far

So God got involved and sent his message
The Rainbow said Yes to Marriage Equality

Rainbow Signal

Heavens above
What’s next
Female priests at the Tabernacle?


Divine Intervention

Cancer touches many lives
The Catholic Church touch more

Location: East Melbourne, Australia


Despite being neighbours, these two institutions are worlds apart

We live in hope of a cure for cancer one day
Finding a cure for The Church will need a miracle


The Prince of Peptides

The Prince of Peptides, James Hird has done it again. See the Bombers fly up, up to 2nd place on the AFL ladder. Another win and they take another 4 points

And that’s not all they take. They take everything known to mankind. Animal, Mineral or Vegetable. Even if its partially known to mankind.  They’ll take it

But hats off to Jimmy. He’s dodged some heavy bullets thus far with a masterful play behind the scenes. Best game he’s ever played

James, you’re a man of Substance
Hird of Teflon. It’s not a question


Wake Up Australia


If you believe morality has a place in modern sport, you probably also believe Santa Claus lives at the North Pole. Get real Australia. Lift the ban on Performance Enhancing Drugs.

Allegations of widespread professional doping inside the AFL and NRL has left the nation shell shocked. There will be plenty of casualties in the battle that looms between administrators, regulators, law enforcement, players and club officials. Stephen Dank has already fired the first shot by launching a $10 million defamation lawsuit against various media outlets. A pre-emptive strike inspired by disgraced professional cyclist Lance Armstrong and his legal strategy being the best method of defence is offence.
But what I’ve found most alarming is the general publics reaction of shock and horror. They are genuinely surprised by these revelations at Essendon People are entitled to feel betrayed and gutted at the grim prospect of widespread doping practices within their sacred sport. But don’t be surprised. It’s simply naive to think elite sport people are clean.
Wake up Australia. 

Professional sport is NOT about providing role models for our children. That ship sailed long ago. It’s big business. It’s about highest scores, fastest times, world records and medals. It’s all about winning.

So why not give the green light to performance enhancing drugs?  Let athletes take whatever they like, so long as it’s not illicit. Illegal drugs are a different matter entirely. With doping bans lifted, who knows, we may get to witness Usain Bolt running 100 metres in under 5 seconds. Or the footy season could be extended to 52 weeks per year. It makes no sense for society to keep placing ever greater demands upon athletes for success yet take the moral high ground when a scandal like this erupts. We banish losers and celebrate winners. Winners are bathed in glory and wealth.  With such powerful forces motivating athletes to be “Simply the Best” surely people can’t be surprised that drugs are used to boost performance.
Wake up Australia.

Many will argue that allowing performance enhancing drugs is irresponsible and may reduce athlete life expectancy. And of course the old chestnut about the message this would send to our children. I’ll say it again, sport is about winning. It is NOT about being role models for our kids. It’s big business.
Wake up Australia. 

Performance enhancing drugs are here to stay. Governing bodies need to think through a new paradigm. Afterall, it was progressive thinking that decriminalised homosexual acts in Australia in 1969. So in less than one generation our laws have changed from it being a crime to being legally recognised. And two thousand years ago, the Romans used to feed Christians to hungry Lions.  Back then it was considered normal. Today our society is very different. Point being; we need policies and laws that are in step with modern day reality.

The sooner they lift all bans on performance enhancing drugs the better. And it will happen. It might not be in my lifetime but down the road, it’ll become a reality. So let’s start the discussion. Obviously there will be resistance as the many vested interests fight to justify their existence. Currently, the anti-doping agencies are locked in a cat and mouse game with those seeking to avoid detection. Careers are on the line. But lift the ban and the tables turn as the anti doping industry becomes redundant.

But until that day, get outraged, vent your spleen and then get over it. Drugs in sport are here to stay.
Wake up Australia.

Make your mind up Australia
Are you committed to waging a war against drugs?

If yes, then shut the fuck up about the methods used in the fight
If no, then fair enough

Get off the fence and take a stand
Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran did

Broken Voice

This is a Community Service Announcement

Joel Madden, frontman for band Good Charlotte and star of The Voice has hit the headlines for possession of a joint. But it was no Record Haul. No charges are likely given the woefully small amount of  Wacky Tobacci involved†¤….Gee, what a revelation. Drugs in the entertainment business!!……and at the other end of the spectrum we have a justice system that failed to protect Jill Meagher from a brutal murder by a savage on parole. Then the community erupts with outrage at the gross negligence of the legal system and demand answers so this travesty never happens again.

But you don’t need to look too far for answers. It’s us. We are to blame. We call the Police too quickly and too often for petty grievances or trivial matters. So instead of keeping killer rapists locked up, police resources are diverted into chasing down red neck racists having a rant on public transport.

Get vocal but Get Real. Use the Police resource wisely.
Think before you Dial.


†¤ Woefully small by Rock star standards


The Will of The Salvation Army

Thank God for the Salvo’s….however I don’t think Will preparation would be a priority for the marginalised folk of society. And to those for whom Will preparation is a priority and if they needed help, I’m not sure The Salvation Army would be the first choice.
