Tony Abbott and the Not So Terribly Good Week

Australia: The Australian Prime Minister, John Howard, has once again been asked to explain the cosy relations he and his minions have with religious extremists.

This time it's the foaming loon Danny Nalliah, the head of Melbourne-based Catch the Fire Ministries, who was charged in a test case of Victoria's religious vilification laws for comments he made about Muslims in 2002. It seems Nalliah fronted up to the far right-wing League of Rights, despite being warned that they were anti-Jewish.

Pastor Nalliah has been given top-level access in recent months to the Howard Government, which he has endorsed enthusiastically.

The revelation of his speech in 2005 has prompted Labor to call on the Government to cease contact with Pastor Nalliah.

The case ran for five years, during which Mr Costello supported the pastor. The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal initially found he had vilified Islam, but the verdict was quashed on appeal. It was eventually resolved at mediation.

Creationism Will Turn You Into a Serial Killer?

United States: The creationist loons may have scraped the bottom of the barrel when it comes to digging up testimonials for their cause.

Between 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer murdered at least 17 men and boys. His murders included gruesome acts and he was sentenced to a lifetime in prison.

But during his sentence something changed, and before his death, Dahmer went on MSNBC with his father. When asked what contributed to his new accountability, he told his father, Thanks to you for sending that creation science material.

That's Not My Penis

Australia: The Family First Party have always been a paranoid, hypocritical bunch of loons, but one of their current candidates seems determined to outdo his brethren.

Andrew Quah was a candidate for the Family First Party, a political front for the Assemblies of God cult, until he was dumped due to his hobbies clashing with the dominionist leanings of his party. They are a group with a serious hate-on for homosexuals, so when photos of him flashing his genitals turned up on gay web sites, they booted him.

Religiously Justified Child Abuse

Australia: Exclusive Brethren sanctioned child abuse has featured quite a bit on the Prattle and, oh look, it raises its ugly head yet again.

FORMER Family Court chief justice Alastair Nicholson has accused the Exclusive Brethren church of brainwashing and abusing children by denying them access to their non-Brethren parents.

Mr Nicholson also accused it of failing to comply with court orders, of stacking Family Court rooms with supporters to intimidate opponents, of using their almost unlimited legal funds to conduct appeals no matter how hopeless, and of unacceptable comments about being above the law.

Brethren Outed for Illegally Shifting Cash

Australia: Oh dear, John Howard has finally announced an election and his bestest buddies are sprung illegally moving large sums of cash around the world to fund smear campaigns in his favour.

A former member of the Exclusive Brethren has revealed the secretive religious sect has been transferring large sums of money across the world, possibly to fund political campaigns in Australia and the US.

In recent years Brethren leaders have met with numerous Liberal ministers, including Prime Minister John Howard.

Now ABC TV's Four Corners program has revealed that tens of thousands of dollars in Brethren cash have been transferred around the world in envelopes.

Brethren Running Political Smear Campaigns Again

Australia: John Howard hasn't announced the election yet and already it looks like the bampots from the Exclusive Brethren are running their smear campaigns

A leaflet had been distributed in parts of Wentworth that warned against voting Labor or Green under the banner Keep Australia Christian.

The two parties were accused of the destruction of families through supporting gay marriage and same-sex adoption, and turning a blind eye to drugs, prostitution, pornography and immigration from non-Christian countries.

Although the leaflet contains no authorisation required for political advertising, Newhouse believed the extremist material could be the work of the Exclusive Brethren.
