Good morning, all.

It appears that South Australia's Chief prosecutor, Mr Stephen Pallaras, is calling for the introduction of new laws that would empower the DPP to combat the rising menace caused by 'cults'. Mr Pallaras' principle supporter is, of course, Senator Nick Xenophon.

Assuming for the moment that such laws are introduced, I wonder who it is that gets to decide what constitutes a 'cult'?

Blessings,

Ian

Actually I would like to read those laws myself.

Oh Ian there was a very informative show on the Biography Channel on Foxtel about the "Children of God".. will burn it and post it on to you if you're interested.

But for now, I have to go and get ready to go down to the church and have a look at some plaster repairs and see what needs to be done - probably will only need a small bucket of cornice cement... Eric enjoys house renos !!

ciao bro

blessings'

Ian, I would suggest it be the 'Pente' or 'New Age' crowd that would have the most influence. The Pollies seem to suck up to them at election time to get the vote. Sure as not the true and knowlegeable Churches.

Hello, SA[d]Boy.

what are you scared you will lose your little gathering here? Ha, ha. Do you think this small forum represents the largest gathering of people whom I'm ever in a position to influence? ;) No, my concern is that laws of this sort have historically served as the precursor to restrictions on association, on freedom of speech, and on freedom of conscience.

One can, and should, learn from the past :)

As yes that which is true and knowledgable. One would expect Ralph that such truth and knowledge would produce good fruit.

Have you always been this easily led?

Yes I beleive that the Pente's would have a big say. But that could because (but only from where I'm at) they are the ones being quite vocal in the media and politics. Mind you I am attending an AOG/ACC/or whatever we are called now.
