And the Mully Cup for July 2012 goes to; The Concerned Citizens of Canberra

By johnboy 1 August 2012 76

mully cup

Readers will doubtless be thrilled to learn that Canberra’s answer to the Ku Klux Klan, the Concerned Citizens of Canberra for their vile bit of dog whistling in Gungahlin against the long planned mosque.

It’s true the story kicked off on 28 June but the comments waged long and loud as bigots crawled out of the woodwork to show their sickening true colours.

Ending up with 246 comments and spawning a couple of extra stories it was a worthy Mully Cup winner for July 2012.

(The Mully Cup is awarded monthly to the entity stimulating the most comment on this website. It is named in memory (if not in honour) of Justin Mully Williams who both improved our world, and set the record for comments, in his departure)

This is an article about a German theologian who was adamantly opposed to the Nazis and executed by the Gestapo. He has a statue inside Westminster Abbey, alongside Martin Luther King.

I you want to see sectarian violence try asking all of Canberra’s Christians to share the same facility.

Doesn’t happen. Because Christians were dragged out of the dark ages by a couple of centuries of warfare followed by the scientific revolution. Islam still has all that to go through. And I for one don’t believe we should allow them to go through any of it here.

HenryBG said :

The biggest Protestant group in 1930s Germany (Deutsche Christen) was a group whose aim was to combine Nazism with Christianity to create a new Nationalist Christian cult. They picked through their religion to get rid of anything that seemed too “foreign” or “jewish”.

The Nazis themselves regarded themselves as militant Christians, although there was a lot of revived weirdo Teutonic pagan nonsense going on as well.

There was nothing godless about them – that’s just the propaganda put about since the end of the 1,000-year Reich by the rest of the world’s Christian god-botherers, embarrassed as they are that the world’s 2nd-worst regime of mass-murderers was adamantly inspired by the Christian religion.

Are you arguing against yourself now HenryBG?

I suggest a cup of tea, a Bex and a good lie down.

HenryBG, given that it’s clear from your earlier post that you don’t know basic history such as the contribution Islam had made to the world’s knowledge by the turn of the 11th century, it looks as though you must have got your grasp of this from a quick google/wikipedia search!

It should be noted that the big german theologians went to the mat and paid with their lives in opposing nazism which was essentially godless.

Who fed you that, JB?

Hey JB, I note the inaugural Mully Trophy is quickly running out of space to record it illustrious recipients names and contributions.

Are there any plans to produce a new symbol of Riot act hysteria; a Mully mark 2″

Can I suggest that, if the Mully is to be replaced, the RA:

1. Produce a commemorative 1/16th scale “mully” for purchase.
2. Give it an appropriate send off, maybe a parade up northbound (We could get Lorie daily to drop it off the back of a mini moke)

Can we not just make it bigger? Stick another hubcap and layer of cans on. I’m happy to provide empty woodstocks if someone else supplies the cap.

And Godwin.

What religion did the Nazis observe?

The NSDAP was a political rather than a religious movement, most members of the party and those under its governance would have probably claim adherence to some branch of mainstream Christianity.
Your point is ….?

Ok, But Iceland? Of all the fantastic travel destinations available in the world, why Iceland?

Iceland has always been pretty high on my list of places to visit. Considerably higher on the list then Japan, all other things being equal.

For the record, I have no Icelandic friends, but I have a friend who was arrested there once.

I visited for a month about 15 years ago.

It is absolutely fantastic. I’m pretty well travelled and I would say that Iceland tops the list of places I’ve visited.

4W-Driving on Vatnajokull Glacier is pretty hard to beat, as are the Northern lights, and the absolutely mad Icelandic people. If you want a good drinking buddy find an Icelander.

It’s not all that far off the beaten track – a quick flight from Heathrow, and now that their economy has tanked I would guess it’s a fair bit cheaper than it was in the past.

Highly recommended.
