Who does Scott Morrison serve?

By 1PeterMCC

Interfering in religious unrest (by recognising West Jerusalem as Israel’s capital) and to the disadvantage of Australia’s trade agreements with Indonesia, only makes sense when you remember who Scott serves. He openly identifies with Prosperity theology which sits firmly within the Born Again (BA) off-shoot of Christianity, mixing fast-talking sales people with a healthy dose of “greed is good” and demotes Jesus and his “love thy neighbour” message back into the pack of lesser Prophets.

Just under half of BAs actively desire the destruction of Earth as part of the long awaited 2nd Coming and it’s starting to look like Morrison follows the brand of Christianity that wants to bring on Armageddon. They are expecting the Middle East to kick off the Rapture when it all blows up in a nuclear fireball.

I can understand Scott feeling like it’s “the end of days” in his Party room with battle-fatigue setting in, because Tony lost the top job in 2015 and the unrest had started long before that point. Since then it’s been open hostility, another ex-PM, and polling telling him it’s game over. No wonder we are seeing these ill-considered knee jerk decisions. The poor bloke is exhausted.

But there is no need for him to bother his invisible friend and sow discord in the Middle East. He can achieve the same thing of destroying livability on the planet by following his 2nd love. Coal.

Consider coal’s advantages. It’s handy, there’s plenty of it, soft to the touch when you wash and vanish it before openly fondling it in Parliament, has an impressive record of damage to humans second only to God, and it can be seen by the human eye which overcomes God’s visibility problem.

Humans are quite capable of destroying the environment without having to call on his favourite lesser God to start killing off humans again. The solution is right there in his hands.

No need to worry about Indonesia, too. It’s made up of 17 and a half thousand islands so a few more tax payer funded coal powered generators should solve his “being a good neighbour” irritant.

So no need to be stirring God from his more important work of repairing the eyesight of Sam’s Mum. Scott can have a classic win win by taking responsibility on himself.

    Great article!

    As he is a member of the United States of North America cult, Australian Branch. Of course, I speak of the assembly of God, the FANATICAL happy clappers, so the answer to your question is that these deluded people think they serve a dead man who died over 2,000 years ago, and the cult has interpreted the un-authored book known as the bible in such a way that cult members have a fanatical right-wing view that nobody can counter because it is part of who they see themselves being.

    The cult appears to me to try to find vulnerable people and befriend them and by the time they attend their ‘services’ a few times they are hooked, then comes the joining fee 10% of your income, but by then it’s too late. Now if this method has changed in recent decades, then fine, but I doubt if it has.

    Oh, by the way, they have adopted a newish name also to seem more legitimate Australian Christian Churches.

    A dangerous and toxic mix. These self serving so called Christians need to be called out and discredited. Fast.

    The Israelis call it the Samson Option. So when Scumo and the LNP have a brain-fart, they run it up the flag pole to see who salutes! If the IPA agree, it becomes policy for a week.

    My observation is that the LNP realize their days are numbered, so they are setting up the Australian economy to fail. This will be the inheritance of the Labor government. Therefore I suggest that politicians’ pensions be reduced to $1 per month and other novel policies introduced (I can think of several), to restore some balance…

    A topical opportunity to scoff and mock our creator, I bet the author loves those. Funny that they behave as predicted, 2Peter3.

    “Growing up in a Christian home, I made a commitment to my faith at an early age and have been greatly assisted by the pastoral work of many dedicated church leaders, in particular the Reverend Ray Green and pastors Brian Houston and Leigh Coleman.” – Scott Morrison first speech.

    In 2015, Brian Houston was censured by the Child Abuse Royal Commission for failing to report his father, Frank Houston, to police for the alleged sexual abuse of children in his church.

    … three years after this censure, NSW Police confirmed that Brian Houston is being investigated by them after complaints that he failed to report his father’s crimes, instead, concealing them and urging church officials to refrain from publicly revealing the allegations in the interests of the institution’s reputation.

    In 2006 Leigh Coleman’s operation at Hillsong Emerge – the evangelical group’s former benevolent arm – had its funding discontinued after revelations the vast majority of taxpayer dollars went to employing staff.

    Mr Coleman’s current program at Many Rivers has since successfully raised millions of dollars from the Federal Government and some of the country’s biggest companies including Rio Tinto, BHP Billiton and Westpac.

    But since its inception in 2007 to the end of the 2010 financial year the latest available records show it has delivered just 74 microenterprise loans worth a total of $330,000.

    While declining to provide evidence as to how the reported $1.375 million had been spent delivering them, the charity said that – like the discontinued Hillsong pilot – the bulk had gone on staff salaries and training.

    Nice mentors there Scott.

    “A topical opportunity to scoff and mock our creator…” since when did Scummo get promoted to being a creator? Unless you mean the super-duper supernatural bearded ghost who has personality problems that purportedly lives in the sky, that creator? Scummo only creates disorder and chaos and only serves Scummo what Scummo wants…power.

  9. DrakeN

    Do you have any factual knowledge of the existence of this “creator” to share with us?

    After over half a century of private, but fairly comprehensive research into the matter, I have been unable to find any.

  10. Matters Not

    It is Man who created God.

    Sometimes more than one. Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    Sometimes Female (in days gone by) but now invariably Male.

    But we will see that the Me Too movement comes up with.

    This piece really nails it.

    The Surmon on the Mount comprises a significant section of the New Testament, it is ignored by the BAs. The Surmon on the Mount runs counter to what we hear from LNP politicians claiming to be Christian.

  14. 1petermcc

    That was my thought too Keith. It seems to me that the Sermon on the Mount rewrites a lot of the Old Testament material e.g. an eye for an eye, but the Coalition are more your Old Testament kinda guys.

    I suspect their God intended the New to replace the Old but some dill decided to keep both and be left with an unworkable, illogical mess.

  15. peter mccarthy

    Rob M, if you take the time to read carefully, you should discover the mockery is actually reserved for Born Agains who have seriously corrupted the Sermon on the Mount which seems frightfully sensible for a religious text.

    I appreciate some folk feel the need for a God to help shield them from reality, but as soon as that requires them to be elitist and the rule setters for the rest of humanity, then I’m happy to mock. Especially when they actively seek the mother of all battles in the Middle East and support actions that bring it closer.

  16. peter mccarthy

    Ta for that additional info Kaye Lee. I think part of the push to bring back the right of religious groups to discriminate is the hope they can cry foul is someone decides to Audit the many freebies governments have given the institutions.

    The disgusting level of protection afforded these bodies, and the handouts to boot, would certainly anger Voters if a full and frank review was ever allowed.

  17. Zathras

    Despite the content of its doctrinal texts, Religion doesn’t provide a reason for immoral behaviour but it does provide an excuse.

    In spite of specific instruction to the contrary we don’t burn witches, keep slaves or kill gays anymore because society has progressed since the Iron Age when these rules were laid down.

    Meanwhile Prosperity Cults like Hillsong are run by shysters for personal profit, the Churches are inhabited by protected pedophiles and evangelicals are controlling politics and much of the media. Even the KKK claims to be a religious organisation.

    Morrison may claim to “kneel and pray” for suffering refugees but actually has the power to do something about them.
    He’s not following Biblical instructions so must therefore be serving himself.

    Zathras

    You might want to check out the KKK’s status. It is now fragmented into disorganised and disparate groups none of which claim tax exemptions.

    https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/kkk-tax-exempt-religious-organization/

    FYI, I am not supporting the ease with which so-called religious groups get away with tax free status. In particular the money mad evangelicals are especially galling.

  19. Zathras

    Diannaart,

    I realise the KKK is not a recognised formal religion but it justifies it’s beliefs on Biblical tracts. It’s political beliefs (local manufacturing, local jobs, no outsourcing and so on) are no different from any other conservative party. Their “no welfare for known drug users” idea was the most recent to be adopted here through the Welfare Card.

    That’s how you convince people to do what they normally wouldn’t – make it a struggle between good (Us) and evil (Them) with divine justification and support.
    Even the Germany infantry had “Gott Mitt Uns” (God with Us) emblazoned on their belt buckles.

    Someone once said that science has given us skyscrapers and aeroplanes but it took religion to bring them together.
    Coincidentally the date September 11th is also the anniversary of the Mountain Meadows Massacre of 1857 so there’s no Muslim monopoly on religiously inspired atrocities.

  20. Diannaart

    Zathras

    I wasn’t having a go at you. I agree many vile organisations use religion to justify their behaviour.

  21. Aortic

    Having dealt with Hillsong on some business matters some years ago, I can attest to the fact that their hierarchy are nothing but hard nosed business types hell bent on augmenting the coffers of their ” all embracing evangelical institution.” Could not find what I would call a Christian spirit amongst any of them.
