‘Rationalist’ Terrorism

Everybody is absolutely free to believe whatever they like in the privacy of their own minds – but it’s where people who have a very strong belief in a particular style of Christianity – where that belief spills over into the public domain I think that’s where people are starting to feel very uncomfortable.”

– Left-wing Rationalist Society President Meredith Doig told Andrew Bolt this week that everybody is free – except for all the people she doesn’t like. Likeminded “rationalists” killed at least 150,000,000 people in the twentieth century

    “Why yes, you’re absolutely allowed to have a religion.

    It just needs to be ours…”

    A Finnish Lutheran MP has been charged with “hate crime” for tweeting a Bible verse.

    No mention of “people who have a very strong belief in a particular style of Eye Slam – where that belief spills over into the public domain”? Why am I not surprised?

    Politicians are almost without exception, expedient corrupt dishonest treasonous useless and destructive hypocrites. Their behaviour at a personal level is invariably appalling.

    That’s why my hackles always rise when I hear these despicable arseholes claiming to be guided by religion (and no, I don’t care what religion they claim to be guided by). Some examples below, in no particular order:

    Geriatric Joe
    Keneally
    Krudd
    Dross Cameron
    Keith Wright
    Pelosi
    Morristeen
    Danby
    The Beetrooter
    various m00zleys blighting legislatures and other public offices across the west
    etc, etc, etc.

    Just shut the f*ck up about it. Enough.

    As I wrote two days ago, that appearance by Meredith Doig on Andrew Bolt chilled me to my bone. I also noted that Bolt, always ready to jump in and talk over other guests, remained strangely mute whilst the very sinister Doig parroted her creepy, fascist totalitarian thoughts on national television. Her digraceful utterances went unchallenged by Bolt. Watching her, I felt as though I was watching someone who would have been quite at home interrogating people for thought crimes in the Lubyanka in Moscow in 1938.

    I know Andrew Bolt was a steadfast and stalwart defender of Cardinal Pell and all credit to him but I often wonder if he ever sits back and reflects on the type of people who went after Cardinal Pell to silence him…well on Tuesday night Bolt gave a platform to such a person. The problem with Andrew Bolt, like a lot of MP’s in the Liberal party, is that they want to be liked and respected by people who loathe them. Bolt has a history of crawling to people who despise him. That segment with Doig has left a very, very bad taste in my mouth.

  6. Lee says:

    So it’s okay to hold the most extreme Marxist/green/left beliefs, but woe betide if you are a Christian in the “public domain” or politics.
    I don’t know why Bolt gives oxygen thieves like Meredith Doig even the time of day, let alone airtime.

    In Finland, the women are in charge

  8. TBH says:

    What these hard left academics fail to realise is that if we were to ever get what they want it would be like Cambodia all over again: the revolutionaries would find the “smart” people and execute them, so as not to threaten the power base of the new regime.

    It’s all very easy to champion extremist views from the comfort and relative safety of a think tank or university in a liberal democracy like Australia, but quite another in an unstable place where you are pretty likely to get disappeared for holding a view that disagrees with the government. And make no mistake, there will eventually be a disagreement. History tells us that.

    Christian Pastor Arrested For Saying Marriage is Between a Man and a Woman

    Got to find far-right white extremists from somewhere.
    Seems to be an excess of demand over supply presently.

    Better version: “Everybody is absolutely free to believe whatever they like in the privacy of their own minds – but it’s where people who have a very strong belief in a particular style of Islam – where that belief spills over into the public domain I think that’s where people are starting to feel very uncomfortable.”

  11. PeterW says:

    Mack….

    It’s not about belief, it’s about what you do.

    For once Bolt not running over the top of his guest allowed a very clear understanding of where she was coming from. Out of her own mouth.

    Watching her, I felt as though I was watching someone who would have been quite at home interrogating people for thought crimes in the Lubyanka in Moscow in 1938.

    Quite so.

  13. PeterW says:

    So why isn’t claiming somebody is “offensive”, also regarded as offensive?

  14. Rex Anger says:

    So why isn’t claiming somebody is “offensive”, also regarded as offensive?

    Too useful a rhetorical weapon for one side of politics.

    And given the near-complete control of the Narrative by said side, the only answer at times, seems to be bayonets.

    Preferably their own…

  15. max says:

    Caught a portion of the Religion and Ethics program on the ABC. It was unrelieved Morrison fear mongering. Rudd on the other hand was praised as an exemplar for the way he conducted press briefings ‘in the shadow of the church’ on Sunday mornings. Is there nothing put out on the national broadcaster which does not push the ALP/Greens agenda ? It is absolutely farcical.

  16. Roger says:

    Watching her, I felt as though I was watching someone who would have been quite at home interrogating people for thought crimes in the Lubyanka in Moscow in 1938.

    People who want to ban religion from the public square will, should they ever get their way, soon move on to banning it from “the privacy of the mind”. Very sinister.

  17. Roger says:

    For the ABC a debate involves two people in furious agreement attacking a straw man.

  18. Paul says:

    its good to know where our politicians morals and values sit.
    Religions gave us civilization and humanity, it took time but we got there
    we never know we elected a commie until they start telling us how racist we are and how awful our society is.
    If only we had a heads up.

  19. Strayan Drongo says:

    You are free to think what you like, but you cannot advocate for ideas that we don’t allow. All this style of thinking does is cause violence.

    Reread your words- what if communism is a state religion and X-ism is its original sin that you have to genuflect and ask for forgiveness?

  21. Rex Anger says:

    @ Rich-

    There is neither forgiveness, nor redemption under Communism.

  22. Rex Anger says:

    There is only fear-compliance.

  23. calli says:

    Chuckle.

    I think she means Christian Christianity.

    And she doesn’t like it. Join the queue, luv.

  24. Ozman says:

    From what I have heard and observed, Christian Christianity is uncommon, if by this you mean the genuine expression and not the superficial version made up of facades and those who love to genuflect in public.

  25. Nebia Hill says:

    Was listening to Bolt’s podcast interview of the smug “rationalist”, it was on in the background.

    I wasn’t even listening to her words, then I became aware it (the voice), it was creepy, very creepy.

    She “the rationalist” was calmly venting and just the sound, the tone of her voice sent a chill to my inner core which stayed with me all day and more.

    Bolt did well to keep his mouth shut and let her speak on…

    A scary person indeed.

    Thank you Mr Bolt for giving her “oxygen” by not interupting, I now am very aware of The Rationalist Society of Australia.

    RIP the 150,000,000 plus who were “rationalized” for their own good by “the rationalists” last century.

    That chill I felt is the same as when I look into the eyes of those Cambodian people in the “mugshot” photo above just before they were “rationalized”.

    RIP the 150,000,000 plus who were “rationalized” for their own good last century.

  26. Nicholas (Unlicensed Joker) Gray says:

    I think this is part of the normal human condition- to vilify anyone who doesn’t conform to our own ways 100% of the time. And if you don’t agree with me- then Burn, baby, burn!!!

  27. Dusty says:

    Sounds like left hand markets will be in vogue soon.

  28. Judge Dredd says:

    And it was through Christianity, with it’s hegemony since Constantine through to the 1800’s that gave us a beautiful Western culture. Christian leadership is clearly more desirable than any other known alternative.

    Why doesn’t this apply to Meredith Doing?

    But, more importantly, what is the point of having a belief if it cannot ‘spill over into the public domain’?

  30. Maniac says:

    Oh yeah, all those evil, no-good Christians throwing gay people off the roofs.

    Oh wait…

  31. “A Finnish Lutheran MP has been charged with “hate crime” for tweeting a Bible verse.”

    This is a good start. Maybe stale “churchians” might take things seriously if they have something to lose.

  32. Up The Workers! says:

    So in order to please those who follow the religion of Leftardism and the creed of Apocalyptic Catastropharianism, Christians, instead of being meek and mild, should vigorously practise the lopping off of hands, heads and feet and gouging-out of eyeballs of others, together with the stoning to death of underage pack-rape victims, tossing bound homosexuals off the roofs of tall buildings and burning down the places of worship of other faiths whilst the congregation is still inside, in order for them to find ‘approval’ of the Leftards.

    And what of those devout followers of the religion of Apocalyptic Catastropharianism – are they to be subject to their own prescription?

    Or as usual, is it a case of: “Do as I say; not as I do.”?

    If you ever want to learn something about the weather, poke your head out the window and observe. Don’t ever make the mistake of listening to the mad gillarding of a fact-phobic Left-Wing political meteorologist.

    You forgot one…mutilating a little girl’s clitoris.

  34. Baa Humbug says:

    These attacks on Christianity seem to have gotten more fervent since that Marxist Globalist was installed at the Vatican.
    The bloke seems to defend Eeezlam more than he defends Christianity.

  35. kneel says:

    “…where that belief spills over into the public domain I think that’s where people are starting to feel very uncomfortable.”

    Do I not have the right to know what any potential “leader” has as a moral framework and what (if any) guiding principles they have?
    Is this not a significant factor in how one decides for whom to vote?
    Is it not rational to encourage such statements from aspirants to public office?
    Oops…

  36. Ooh Honey Honey says:

    A secular person pronouncing how religions are meant to work and expecting to be taken seriously strikes me as irrational.
    Promoters of ALL religions want their beliefs to spill over into and be manifest in every aspect of life. That’s why they started them up.
    Sigh, it was a very different Association when I was a member back in the 80s…listening to Brian Ellis talk about belief systems. But then the newsletter started to features this snooty little prick drawn by Nicholson saying ‘We’re not economic rationalists!’ and I was too young to realise I was witnessing the Cultural Marxist rot first hand..

  37. Tel says:

    Did Bolt ask her whether all of Australia’s coal power stations should be shut down? And soon?

    That’s a fairly reliable test for rationality.

  38. Crossie says:

    Bolt has a history of crawling to people who despise him.

    He did some program with Linda Burney and claimed that they became friends during the making of it yet she was barely civil to him. Sad lack of judgement.

    They are just as capable of lying about that as anything else.

  40. Kneel says:

    “They are just as capable of lying about that as anything else.”

    Oh, undoubtedly.
    But having them on the record has some merit – if nothing else, it allows them less wriggle room when they perceive a change of winds.
