Hero(ines) and Villains - Sunday 20th July 2008

The Hero(ines) and Villains feature is here to thank those who make a positive contribution to liberal causes and tut tut those who make a negative contribution.

Hero(ine) of the Week: Humanity

This week, at risk of being accused of plagiarising Time magazine, our hero(ines) are Humanity. In a week where Channel 4 was told off over a climate change denying documentary, and George Bush revoked the executive order that protected polar bears and other species from having their habitats destroyed in the pursuit of, you guessed it, oil; the positive contribution that Humanity has made to its environment and its co-inhabitants of the plannet Earth should be remembered.

Although the chosen picture is of something that Humanity made over a thousand of years ago, we still make wonderful contributions to the natural environment today. We need to remember that, because we are in danger of destroying the very thing that gives us life: Earth.

Villain of the Week: The Pope
This week we have seen the Pope talking about the evils of greed and immoral actions during World Youth Day. Ironic, as despite the billions of dollars holed up inside the Vatican, the New South Wales State Governement has footed the AU$129m bill for the World Youth Day celebrations. Funny how the Pope does not define the use of Australian tax payers money to fund a Catholic promotional event as greed on behalf of the Church. World Youth Day is another large Catholic event that tries to complete the indoctornation of young people into a religion that promotes discredited theories about existance in addition to sponsoring discriminiation and claiming that humanity has dominion over all other species on the Earth.

As I discused the perils of climate change above, it is worth noting the head of the Catholic Church in Australia, Cardinal Pell, believes "the hysteric and extreme claims about global warming are also a symptom of pagan emptiness... Belief in a benign God who is master of the universe has a steadying psychological effect, In the past pagans sacrificed animals and even humans in vain attempts to placate capricious and cruel gods. Today they demand a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions. Church leaders in particular should be allergic to nonsense."
