The law is an ass : Comments

By Michael Jensen, published 5/2/2016

The government, quite rightly, has allowed some from Nauru to come to Australia for medical treatment and for childbirth. This was the only just and humane thing to do, and it was done.

Well I guess the Nauruians are a bit bemused about their country being called a terrible place to live. maybe a Indonesian refugee camp would be more to their liking?

The funniest part though is the good rectors concern about sending people "back in the arms of their abusers". there is a royal commission going on at the moment detailing the churches long history of doing just that with our children.

"Itís an idea that Western culture learnt from its Christian heritage, and itís called grace. err see point two, perhaps read it a couple of times. The Church has no moral ground on which to throw stones at the rest of us.

No mention that the abusers were more than likely illegal immigrants. Interesting to note that their no moral outrage when a young aboriginal girl after being abused was sent to 'her people' only to be pack raped.

btw As a Christian I am appalled by the unbiblical stand taken by so called churchmen. They are acting likle Greenie activist that have left their brains wherever. To try and get a little publicity from the Chritophobes in abc/fairfax is atrocious. There are millions of kids that you can use your own money on to help feed, educate, give better health etc to. This is certainly an obligation to all Christians however banging on alongside political activist like Trigg (who has been caught out lying) is atrocious. Ever thought of moving to Nauru and helping these 'refugees' if you feel so strongly about it?

The law must not only be an ass, it must be seen to be an ass.

There is only one solution to the Nauru problem. The only reason most of the illegals are still there is because their own country won't accept them back. Our government should increase the pressure on these governments to accept their nationals back.

The situation on Nauru is terrible. The only problem is that the situation in Europe, with its flood of illegals, is worse. Things are going to get very much worse because the basic cause of all this is overpopulation, and nothing is going to be done to limit future population increases. The swamping of social services in Europe is likely to cause the election of fascist governments, who will then have to use draconian measures to try and stem the flow. The next failed state is likely to be Libya, which will cause more millions to cross the Mediterranean.

Welcome to the 21st Century. The escalating price of food, coupled with another financial crash, is going to spread untold misery around the world as the four horsemen of the Apocalypse do their work of limiting the population.

Thank heavens we have a sea boundary.

P.S. For those readers who did not attend Sunday School, the four horsemen are War, Famine, Pestilence and Death.

So nice to see a bit of compassion instead of the usual rhetoric of hate.

I thought the spirit of Christ teaching focused on loving one's fellow man. I don't remember anything about only loving one's fellow man if they come from the same country. And what about that bit that goes something like do unto others as you would have done unto you? Away from religion, our national anthem tells us we have boundless plains to share. So many people insist on telling us that Australia is a Christian country (it's not) but refuse to act with Christian spirit.

Yes runner, if we make exceptions and allow these "publicly supported" numbskulls to force their completely nonsensical hysteria on us, and see us make an exception for women and children?

Perhaps if they worked and paid tax? They could move out of the dream castles in the clouds, where they have moved in as permanent residents?

The first thing you'll see is women and children packed in like sardines on overloaded rotting hulks risking their lives and that of their kids, in a new wave of trafficked humans.

Never again should we be forced to witness those terrible scenes at christmas Island, as kids and their parents drowned or were dashed against cruel and unforgiving rocks, before our very eyes, in seas that were just too dangerous to get rescue craft in!

Even so, some of our heroic naval personnel drove their RIBS in and even jumped into that life threatening malestrom to try and effect rescues.

Never ever again!

That said, we can make a case for speeding up the processing and resettlement of these folk.

Just never ever in Australia, the sugar on the table and the very core of the people smugglers successful business model!

As hard as it might seem, we have to remain steadfast and unmoved in order to completely shut down the people smugglers business model and the thousands of resultant deaths at sea.

Leaving they way open for thousands of genuine and vastly more deserving refugees!

Who have waited decades longer in far less hospitable conditions for their chance; and who just aren't well heeled enough to pay tens of thousands to criminals for transport, can instead, apply for the places these clearly desperate undeliberately undocumented folk are trying to steal!

There are limited places!

As always, the do-gooders do more harm than good!

Enough already!
Rhrosty.

"This group is seeking refuge from the refuge we offered them"

They are free to leave at any time and go elsewhere. They will be assisted with passage and resources. However that cannot be to Australia, where they previously tried to enter illegally.

Anyone who wants to return to the porous borders of Rudd and Galah'd+her treacherous Greens sidekicks is downright crazy or is in an emotional cocoon and in complete denial of world events.

As well as the criminal gangs making millions out of people smuggling there is rapacious China, with other countries watching to follow its lead, ruthlessly acquiring land for military strategic uses and for the resources therein.
