Large Protests in Europe and Australia

There are large and continuous protests overseas over the vaccine passport that supposed democratic governments in lockstep seem determined to mandate over the wishes of their populations. 

While as in New Zealand, we are still at the protest over lockdowns stage. This burden has been carried mostly by Brian Tamaki and his congregation, with most of everyone else cowed into submission and compliance.

The above 10 minute clip is of American origin, with the talking heads amazed that the reaction in Europe and Melbourne, Australia, is so severe in comparison to most of the US.  Except for New York, where there are large protests.

They theorise that there is a large segment of American society that wants to be looked after by the government, and therefore are not inclined to protest an erosion of liberal society if that will protect them.

Err, yes, we have that problem here in NZ as well.  Constant messaging from the government of keeping us "safe" resonates with many here.  Makes me want to gag, but then I'm weird that way.

What's disturbing is just how many of these large protests are underreported by the MSM or the reporting is so biased that you'd think the media is the mouthpiece of the government.  This is something I noticed with the reporting on the recent first protest led by Brian Tamaki over Auckland's lockdown.

Where is the converse point of view of those who would explain the unprecedented loss of democratic rights in NZ and where this could lead?  Nowhere to be seen, it appears.

Sine dominico non possumus

This post was inspired by posts on TBR and A Servant's Thoughts on male vs female church attendance. ... "We Cannot Live without Sunday," takes us back to the year 304, when Emperor Diocletian prohibited Christians, under pain of death , to possess the Scriptures, to meet on Sunday to celebrate the Eucharist and to build premises for their assemblies. In Abitene, a small village in what today is Tunis, 49 Christians , meeting in the home of Octavius Felix, were taken by surprise on a Sunday while celebrating the Eucharist, defying the imperial prohibitions. Arrested , they were taken to Carthage to be interrogated by the proconsul Anulinus. Significant, in particular, was the response given to the proconsul by Emeritus, after being asked why he had violated the emperor's order. He said: "Sine dominico non possumus," we cannot live without meeting on Sunday to celebrate the Eucharist. We would not have the strength to face the daily difficulties and not

Hmmmm

The University College London Union will probably never see any irony in this. The president of a London university atheist society has resigned over a row about an image of the Prophet Muhammad. The society at University College London (UCL) published an image on its Facebook page showing "Jesus and Mo" having a drink at a bar. The atheist group was asked by the UCL union to remove it, but refused and started a petition defending its freedom of expression. A student Muslim group began a counter-petition asking for its removal. The cartoon in question of course is designed to be offensive to Christians as well as Muslims. "The society was asked to remove the image because UCLU aims to foster good relations between different groups of students and create a safe environment where all students can benefit from societies regardless of their religious or other beliefs."

This will scare the liberals
