The Committee to Expose the Public Trustee


Please check out the following website and sign the petition it links to.

The Committee to Expose the Public Trustee of Queensland.

An excerpt from the petition –

“The Committee to Expose the Public Trustee is a group of family, carers and friends of people who are clients (some prefer the word victims) of the Public Trustee. We were all struggling in our personal circumstances against the Public Trustee who as substituted decision maker has consistently and systematically ignored the needs and will of our loved ones. The Public Trustee has committed them to poverty and isolation and charged very high fees to do it, including charging their clients (victims) for legal fees used by the Public Trustee to oppose the needs and will of their clients. We have all been round and round the roundabout of complaints, requests for reviews and appeals but are powerless in their system and our loved ones have even less power.

In Queensland, people with a disability, or people who someone has alleged has a disability, can be subject to orders from The Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal to remove their legal capacity to make all personal decisions. The tribunal has no rules of evidence or standards for the burden of proof and accepts the opinion of Public Guardian and Public Trustee officers as fact in their determinations, even when those opinions are disputed by other parties. The Qld Guardianship and Administration Act gives no clear indication of who should have their human rights removed, why they should be removed and to what extent they should be removed – but the tribunal routinely removes the rights of disabled people.”

The West End Uniting Church Philosophy Group invites you to a discussion – Is God a European?

Thursday October 17
7.00 – 8.30pm
at the West End Uniting Church
corner Sussex and Vulture Streets West End

We will explore biblical, European and Aboriginal notions of God and spirituality and ask the question – Did the European missionaries bring knowledge of God to this country or must the churches learn about God from Aboriginal people?

Following is the text of the presentation given on the night –

Is God a European?

In this talk I will argue that the notion of God that is held and promoted by the mainstream Christian church today is an ideological construct of Europe’s cultural heritage, a continuation of the evolution of Helenist society. Hellenism refers to the culture of Greece and Rome although it has its roots in the Egyptian and Persian empires. It is the tradition of empire and so-called civilisation. Hellenist is what the bible refers to as gentile. I will argue that there is a strong similarity between notions of God in the bible and Australian Aboriginal notions of spirituality and that these notions are radically different from the religious notions of Europe.

Pell vs. Dawkins

A post-match analysis from the U.T.P. sports desk.

I would like to join the commentary about the battle between George Pell and Richard Dawkins on the ABC’s Q&A program on 9/5/12. A copy of the show is – here

While I have never had any previous reason to critique Richard Dawkins’ opinions and I have had many reason’s to critique George Pell’s theology and church administration, I found myself being much more attracted to Pell’s position than Dawkins. Continue reading

The Conscious State – BAIAME
God the Father: the absolute truth of all matters; the ego state which takes up ten percent of the mind [Einstein said that] the other ninety percent you are not using, is the bright heavenly bliss, the prior condition, prior to all else, the prior state of being, through the eyes of the unborn, where you reside with the absolute truth of God the Father in that bright heavenly bliss having sacrificed your ego up to the Father through the Spirit, through the eyes of the Ancestors, Jesus Christ.

Without that sacrifice of the ego up to the Father, which is the conscious state, you deal directly from the ego state which is likened to screwing your teddy bear, you are bullshitting, you are popping gum and that is the everlasting hell of it all!!! It will continue until you sacrifice your ego up to that conscious state of being with the absolute truth of God the Father by residing in that ninety percent of the mind which is the bright heavenly bliss beyond and prior to all else, a state of no mind, and emptying of the mind, beyond all desire with true hearing and seeing and total freedom made by way of and thru the realisation of…

The Spiritual State – The Unconditional Love of it ALL! – Through the eyes of the Ancestors – Jesus Christ. ( Rainbow Serpent Moving!)
God the Holy Ghost, which is the Oneness, there is no Other, there is ONLY ONE, which is the spirit, which is the Natural Law/Lore personified by the Elders in Council bloodlines back to territory/ies. Sacrifice is made here by bending the knee, tithing, to those Elders in Council bloodlines back to territory/ies in order to maintain those natural balances, which are the spiritual paths revealed by the Holy Ghost or Spirit upon proper and full considerations with God the Father in that bright heavenly bliss of that prior condition and state of being conscious and manifesting in the eternal and infinite NOW which is the Only Reality, moment by moment, step by step in the material/ego realm. This material realm is illusionary because of its constantly changing condition and lack of perception, necessitating the moment to moment, step by step manifestation or remanifestation in the material NOW which is expressed laterally and three dimensionally, which is the recognition and realisation of heaven on earth by doing God’s will on earth in His name and His creation which is the Garden of Eden and achieved by proper manifestation moment by moment, step by step, here and NOW by way of…

The Ego State – The Material Realm
God the Son which is the manifestation, the reincarnation, the second coming, having made the sacrifice of the ego, which is the source of the dis-ease, the everlasting hell. WITHOUT that sacrifice and the transcendence up through the Holy Ghost up to the Father giving proper considerations of His absolute truth in that bright heavenly bliss descending back down thru the Holy Ghost on those spiritual paths, remanifesting, reincarnating in the second coming to do God’s will on earth, righteously stepping on those spiritual paths to create His heaven on earth.

God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost.

Forever and Ever, Amen

The FAITH without action is blasphemy! ACTION without the FAITH is foolhardy.
I confess that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh not to change or challenge the law but to fulfill it in particular.
