Global web builders, the Hanson front-organisation responsible for the One Nation Party web site and the right-wing online newspaper, `Australian News of the Day', have revealed themselves to the online community for the extreme bigots they really are with their latest attack on Leftlink.

This is from today's edition of `Australian News of the Day':

[extract begins]

There is something sick from within a society when one of its respected church groups has been so infiltrated by the politically correct that they decide to participate in the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

Sound far fetched? No, its true. The Uniting church at Paddington in Sydney is putting together a float for this disgusting event. The parish's secretary, Dr Natalie Sims, is reported as saying organisers would encourage homosexual and heterosexual church members to take part.

The decision has resulted in the Sydney Wesley Mission withholding Au$100,000 from the Uniting Church bureaucracy who are now going so far as to prepare for the ordination of gay ministers.

Rev. Dr Gordon Moyes, director of the Sydney Wesley Mission, believes that the leadership has ignored the widespread protests of the "grass roots in the church" by not responding to a number of petitions that have been sent to it protesting about the church's involvement with gay and lesbian issues like these.

Moyes went on to say, "But this issue is not about gay rights, it is about the church's failure to uphold the very basis of its union in 1977, which was to remain true to the Scriptures."

My view is that the gay and lesbian movement has come out of hiding on the back of political expediency and events like the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras are nothing more than a sign of how powerful these sick political lobby groups have got through the coercive involvement of the Australian Labor Party in the late 1980s.

While any paedophilia activity is actively hunted down by the authorities and tut-tutting over net-porn continues you have extreme left wing groups like the ALP's cohorts Left Link actively promoting this practice on-line to anybody who wants to give it a go.
