The Easter Quantum :
This week we look at the Pope in Sudan ; the Notre Dame fire; elections in Indonesia; Abortion in South Korea and Bejings massive new airport.
A big theme in this week’s Quantum is the intolerance and hypocrisy of today’s ‘liberal’ culture. We start with the weird world of Rugby Australia:
On this side of the ocean we have the even more bizarre case of a rugby player being attacked because he like Israel Folau’s tweet. Billy Vunipola. Our friend Peter Lynas has an excellent commentary on this in the Belfast Telegraph. And this article from the law and religion in Australia blog is really helpful. Brian Houston weighed in with this article in the Sydney Morning Herald
Perhaps the most interesting and balanced comment was from the atheist Matthew Parris who argued for Folau’s freedom to say what he believes.
The intolerance exists in comedy – as Barry Humphries is now banned in the festival he founded – the Melbourne comedy festival.
Intolerance and irrationality is also seen in science as this article in Scientific American demonstrates. And in education – did you know that libraries are symbols of white oppression?
Or that some University lecturers now think its ok to advocate violence as a means of protest?
I would also highly recommend the Quillete podcast interview with Roger Scruton.
There is a new film out about a concert done by Aretha Franklin in Los Angeles in 1972….
Finally, I leave you with this wonderful quote from Michael Green about Easter. Have a great weekend.
“The resurrection is the place to begin if you are looking for a satisfying faith on which to base your life. Do not waste a lot of time investigating every religion under the sun….examine the evidence for Jesus instead. If he is risen you need look no further”.
