Local Christian Lobby making the Canberra sex industry their focus

johnboy 18 July 2012 131

The Australian Christian Lobby has a new Territory Director here in Canberra called Richard Thackway and he’s written to his members letting them know the fundie goodness they’ve got planned for the election.

First order of business is a bit of what seems certain to be sex industry bashing:

Ms Vickie Dunne, MLA will be invited to canvas the policy positions of the ACT Liberal Party on ACT brothels (Attorney-General Simon Corbell was invited but declined to attend). Prostitution and its impact on those caught in the trade is an important issue for many Christians in the ACT. The community will have the opportunity to ask questions of Ms Dunn. The forum is planned for mid-September

Now the local sex industry has not covered itself in glory, but it would be nice to see a proper compliance regime brought in (with a few exemplary executions) rather than driving the industry back underground.

On another note it is frankly bizarre that the only religion based on a man known to have associated with prostitutes is so down on it.

People should relax – as no wack-job religious group will be able to get rid of prostitution in Canberra. There’s far too much money in it for it to disappear.

What I can’t understand is some people’s “white-washed” views of the “industry” and the people in it. It’s corrupt and dirty and disgusting. Legal or not, there’s nothing pretty about it.

Good point, and well done for introducing a healthy dose of reality to this thread.

The problem is that we don’t need the lower classes anymore: just about all the menial jobs have either been automated or offshored to India, leaving them with nothing to do here except welfare-bludging and crime.
We really need to tie welfare to compulsory contraception to cut down on their excessively high rate of breeding.

Ooh, dammit Henry, you had to go and ruin it.

Up until now you were walking that fine line where people could still wonder whether you were a troll or an actual full-on nutbar. But that comment is just such a Troll 101 statement that you’ve finally shown your true colours.

That makes you no fun anymore…

Hahaha! Nah, he’s just trolling to get someone to enact Godwin’s law and close the thread! Hahahaha!

I didn’t suggest we round them all up and get them building Autobahns…although now you mention it, …..

In any case, you don’t seem to understand Godwin’s Law: You don’t enact it, you demonstrate it. And the only reason Godwin’s Law would close a thread is if that thread’s purpose was fulfilled by a demonstration of Godwin’s Law.

Dude, you have hit the nail on the head but the prostitutes are providing goods and services for rooters without the breeding. How many pregnant hookers have you seen?

You have to pay a special fee to get some of that.

You’re a real prince pal. On the upside, you’ll certainly off yourself before long or incite somebody else to do it.

The type of society you would ideally like to live in unfortunately does not nor is it ever likely to exist anytime soon.Humans have only evolved to a finite level and the animal within all humans lingers just below the surface.Those who are more highly evolved are better able to control their behaviour and be measured when responding to unpalatable scenarios however the only real escape from all the madness would be to remove oneself from society or of course inevitably cease to exist which for all of us is only a matter of time!

Tattoos are worn by criminals. The only thing less appealing than tattoos is body piercing. Revolting and stupid.

My dad had a tattoo. He got it in the Navy defending the freedom of worthless, jury-duty-skipping, stone throwing scumbags…

Tattoos used to be cool when they were rare. Nowadays every jerk has one, so their appeal is significantly reduced.

Yeah, I got mine 20 odd years ago when, really, only soldiers, sailors, bikies and criminals had them. They were very rare.

Admittedly, I did get a new just a month ago.

Butterfly on the bum? Or rose on the shoulderblade? Or something even more original?

God bless prostitutes

I agree. Unfortunately, they need it more than most. Not because of what they do, but because some people throw rocks at them, either literally or metaphorically.

I would hope you’d charge good money for it.

Sure, but then I’d have to throw rocks at myself.

You’re actually quite good at that…

And incidentally, what’s wrong with tattoos? (#77)

So, the Maori are all criminals?

Ouch.

So bogan scrags AND others who are even less reputable than bogan scrags. Anyone else?
