Rule by the Divine Right

The Christian coalifate and crime cartel is running rampant

The NSW Lib’s sanctification as Premier of the Brylcreemed Li’l Dabble Dooya, better known as Dominic Perrottet, a man resembling a pelican emerging from an oil spill, has re-animated conjecture about the capture of the conservative parties by religious nutters.

It’s yet to be made clear whether Opus Dei Dom has crossed the line from Tarago driving old school Catholic to hard core nutter. He’s a pro-Trump, feral friar replicant – a skinny version of Tony Abbott but sans the dementia pugilistica or as yet any obvious urge to smite and destroy and who thankfully forgoes Abbott’s comical, bow-legged, rodeo-cowboy-who-shat-his-chaps machismo but he’s tipping the scales further to the hard-right of the less-government-more-God American Goppers.

“Some have argued that social security replaces the role of children in old age by socialising the traditional duties of the family.” (Dom Perrottet, The Guardian, July 1, 2015).

During his brief stint in the big chair Abbott’s wisdom suppository was removed from its receptacle and waved in our faces on a regular basis. Captain Catholic held the missionary position of old school biblical sexism and he wasn’t shy with his proselytising on the proper place for women. I strongly suspect Dom with his 6 kids (+1 pending) also sees women as simply life support systems for wombs.

Dom’s a professed champion of the protection of the confidentiality of paedophiles, an anti-abortion/anti-voluntary assisted dying/every sperm is sacred but the economy comes first dichotomist whose ‘go forth and multiply’ convictions are at least not as free-lance as is his co-religionist Barnaby the purple, priapic procreant. The steady infiltration of Dom-alikes in the Tory parties has moved the needle on who qualifies as a nutter vs who’s merely a mainstream Jesuser. A rabid Abbott as PM and Barking Barmy Joyce as deputy blurred the distinctions.

The various tribes of nasty, Old Testament sanctimonious hypocrites, whakkadoodle creationists and Mammonites have morphed the Protestant sectarianism of Robert Menzies’ Liberal Party into a hybrid tent revival, fascist book burning club and Jesus Wants You To Be Rich symposium.

The Tories are infested by Taliban-lite, by incurious simpletons for whom a deity is a handy excuse for disengaging the brain, bronze-ager God squaddies, the zealots inside of whom is a little Torquemada craving to be let out and the self-righteous worshippers of the filthy lucre – all purporting to represent the wishes of a spectral Santa Claus for grown ups whose interests seem to always align with their own. None are there to serve our interests, they’re there to impose their punitive morality and rigid dogma and to top up their property portfolios as a measure of their merit pending the End Times.

Should they dress in goat skins and smear themselves with the ashes of long dead relatives to dance naked around golden images of Donald Trump questions would be asked. They’re not that obvious but they are plenty blatant.


Alex Hawke – SchMo’s prayer buddy and advocate for a business class Jesus


Evolution determined that through climate change a branch of hominids would descend from the trees and thereby develop the bipedalism that led to the opposable thumb, a big brain and language. Various versions spread through large parts of the planet but only Homo sapiens made it past the beta test phase to flatter itself that rather than being the accidental result of a long series of unlikely events we are the sole representation in the entirety of the universe of a spectral creator.

The people who deny science to favour angels and demons and talking eagle paintings are running our country and the one at the pointy end believes that a white, bearded ethereal male* has tasked him personally with carrying out a paranormal plan that accommodates the imminent destruction of a 6,000 year old earth and all it contains, with the enrichment of cronies in the interim as a sub-project to confirm their worthiness in the eyes of his god.

*God is a man apparently which raises the question of why an omnipotent deity who created a universe from nothing is equipped with meat and 2 veg.

Scott Morrison is beyond doubt a genuine, fully blown religious nutter. Beelzebub is as real to Morrison as the tooth fairy is to a toddler. Inane superstitions and an ABN-equipped Jesus inform his sheltered world view. He claims to be on a mission from God with whom he has a personal relationship and he flatters himself with the title of ‘leader’ yet he’s inert in all but the facilitation of a culture of consequence-free grift and Armageddonist planetary destruction. A man defined by what he’s against and by the limitations of a small mind informed by bronze age mysticism. To quote Albo he; “doesn’t hold a hose on bushfires; it isn’t a race on vaccines; and isn’t even in the room on climate change talks.” Not a prophet, not a leader, not God’s emissary – a deluded incompetent who needs to keep a long list of the things he doesn’t know about so that he can deny all accountability and a catalogue of personas to disguise who he really is.



Descriptions of Morrison have included that he is a creep, a spiv and a weirdo but I am wondering what sort of deity it is that he has conjured up in his fabulist imaginings that tolerates the alleged crimes of the cabal that he purports to lead. Dom Perrottet is a worry but he’s got a long way to go to meet ScoMoses’ level of egregiousness.


Some good reading:

God in the Lodge. Crikey. A comprehensive analysis of Morrison’s fantasyland beliefs and his supporting ecosystem of godliness. A highly recommended read.

For God and Country. Religious Dynamics in Australian. Federal Politics. Dr Marion Maddox. A long but worthy read from 2001.

    Could DoPe be the not so funny comedy relief deputy with the cactus in his y-fronts?

    Children grow out of the belief in the tooth fairy (like I stopped believing in Santa when I was 5) but religious lunatics like Scummo and his assorted nutcase mates, never stop believing in Beelzebub, John Howard, Satan, Abbadon, The Rupert, etc. They seem to become even more rabid as they age.

    What to label the COALition misleader and sky fairy consultant. Elsewhewre ”DoPe” form Domonic Perottet is attractive but misses the inherent danger of a Roman agent of the Vatican impacting on the re-distribution of public assets like Roman cemeteries. My own Demonic Parasite somehow misses the mark, but perhaps a combination Demonic DoPe may be suitable.

    DoPe must protect the privacy of kiddie fiddlers because so many of them are priests and other religious. How he managed to be NSW Treasurer when he is unable to count up to 28 leaves me speechless. Six kids and oh how the child allowances roll in.

    So the parade of unChristian nutters continues across the media sponsored by Murdoch the Papal Knight of the Vatican.

    It’s time … Again … in both NSW and feral Parliaments

    “Some have argued that social security replaces the role of children in old age by socialising the traditional duties of the family.” (Dom Perrottet, The Guardian, July 1, 2015). OK Brylcreem, who the bloody hell are they?
    Nothing shits me more than the use of the word “some” in this way,

    The photo of Hawke makes my skin crawl,as it does when you come across like minded ,self righteous morons who are absolutely convinced in their beliefs.They stick out like dogs balls,but are not nearly as useful .When you have dismissed all doubt,you have forfeit your humanity,and with these cretins it is widescreen supermax,cinemascope,vistavision and 3D.(no goggles required)
    If the ‘end times’ are upon us, at least we won’t have to put up with these insulting ,vainglorious fckers.

    We have some primitive, regressive, backward, savage, heathenish, unenlightened, mediaeval, superstition saturated, illogical, unscientific, unreasonable, critically crippled, duncey dickhead deviates in high office and it STINKS, is STUPID, is THREATENING, is RUINOUS.

  9. New England Cocky

    Agreed Michael. Senator Grumpy Geezer and Senator Phil Pryor for the Sensible Politicians Party.

    “The Christian coalifate and crime cartel is running rampant. Scott Morrison is beyond doubt a genuine, fully blown religious nutter. Not a prophet, not a leader, not God’s emissary – a deluded incompetent who needs to keep a long list of the things he doesn’t know about so that he can deny all accountability.”

    That Australia, a secular nation, has a fervent religious nutter as PM shows that our political system is broken, unfit for purpose.

    Morrison is now shitting in his Macca dacks again on what NSW ICAC knows about Glady’s shenanigans and skulduggery.
    Morrison is doing his utmost to denigrate, obfuscate, delay the formation of a genuine Federal ICAC with TEETH.
    He knows the L/NP cover ups, rorting and bs are the tip of a very large iceberg.
    The iceberg that sank the Titanic is minuscule in comparison.
    The whole damn bunch of L/NP are miserable arseholes, a gang of crooks and Dominic Perrottet, (DoPe), is the latest addition.

    “Scott Morrison, has already declared that the political downfall of Berejiklian demonstrated that Icac was “a real problem.”
    It is certainly not a model we ever consider at a federal level” he said.
    The government’s model for a federal Icac involves hearings in private and a much higher standard – a criminal offence – in order to bring proceedings against a federal politician.
    Aside from the lack of judgment shown in commenting on current proceedings involving a political colleague,
    the prime minister’s comments show a woeful lack of insight into Icac’s processes.


    It begins, the beginning of the end of the Liberals “rule” of Australia, the butterfly effect will ripple out, and consume the L/NP.
    The only way for any ICAC to operate, establish trust and be above any attempt at secrecy is with PUBLIC HEARINGS.
    It’s just laughable, (woeful), that in Morrison’s deluded mind he thinks it’s ok to advocate for ICAC hearings in private.

    I call them the Christianist Taliban. And Australia is in real trouble with these “religious” zealots at the helm.

  12. Phil Pryor

    Dear Cocky, thanks but no thanks, from an ageing, tiring, cranky bugger, but, I and we should all share in discussion, debate, analysis, and citizen contribution to people’s political needs. No more of these entrenched, smug, greedy careerist unreliable political operators…

    dominalis sexycalus whatchawalla bet you my old man play dominoes better than your old man can like hell he can!
    Anyone remember singing, pianissimo to avoid the nun’s ears, this at church?
    Geezer you are a breathe of fresh air to write opus dei.
    When the rabbott was accused of being a liar in 2009 I tried to use the concept of being unable to lie because your heart is pure and you live for god. The importance of being a xstian is horrific for women especially those whose indoctrination has them believing that god deliberately made them only equal for 3 weeks out of 4.
    ps BB ‘the prime minister’s comments show a woeful lack of insight into Icac’s processes.“ scummo and the SA pollies understand the processes perfectly and have to avoid the incompetence aspect of corruption from any media attention.

    Nothing shits me more than the use of the word “some” in this way,

    Adolph Wagner, for one. Quoted by Jens Beckert: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download%3Fdoi%3D10.1.1.1010.9509%26rep%3Drep1%26type%3Dpdf&ved=2ahUKEwiFnLXGnNXzAhVL7XMBHauhB_4QFnoECBEQAQ&usg=AOvVaw02-kuNEK5YGko0JGTi6y-Z

    (Page 10, right at the bottom)

    Beckert quotes other, more prominent thinkers, (Adam Smith, John Stuart Mill, Montesquieu … ) whose reflections seem to drift in similar directions.


    As usual GG hits the nail on the head – bravo

    We need a revolution.

    Grumpy Geezer has the rare talent of being able to so savagely kick the pretentious a*ses, condemn the elitist self-entitlement and bruise the stratospheric egos of the repugnant totally corrupt members of Morrison’s LNP – and all done with such wonderful humour, finesse and eloquence! Ever since the miserable, mean-spirited little war criminal, John Howard, rose to power on a platform of reprehensible attacks against the most vulnerable people in Australia and the diabolical “Weapons of Mass Destruction” lie it took for our nation to enter a politically-motivated, genocidal war (in Iraq and Syra) to ensure Howard’s longevity as PM, the self-proclaimed God Botherers and Wrecking Balls in the LNP have continued to become so complacent and so emboldened that they no longer even try to hide what we have ALWAYS known them to be: a despicable and degenerate regime overflowing with the worst, most corrupt, arrogant pack of Hillsong cultists, skirt-lifting misogynistic predators and totally corrupt nauseating bible-thumping hypocrites in Australia’s history!

    The ONLY people MORE deluded, MORE short-sighted and blind to the LNP’s appalling level of malfeasance, are the Murdoch-manipulated fools who keep voting them into power! WTF is WRONG with these people? Yes, yes I KNOW everyone has a democratic right to vote for whichever party they see fit, but REALLY? When I ask LNP supporters the OBVIOUS question: “Name ONE single thing the LNP has EVER done to benefit the lives of YOURSELF and ordinary working- and middle-class Australians?” LNP-supporting Australians (manipulated into the delusion that the LNP does, in any way, represent them) consistently FAIL to come up with any response EXCEPT, of course, to give me a blank stare as they struggle to find a single positive thing to say about this rampaging, destructive, pompous, unconscionable pack of psychopaths, environmental vandals, misogynistic predators and political parasites that hold sway in the LNP.
