Yesterday, the Archbishop’s grating comments on marriage equality rolled the eyes of a nation. But, as someone who considers themselves religious, I’m tired of being tarred with the same brush.
Last night, when Macklemore sang ‘Same Love’ over the sound of protest, a great battle was seemingly won. Except it wasn’t. It was merely just another flashpoint in the war.
After the twentieth Newspoll gave the same result as the ninteen before it, I say its time we find a system of measurement that accurately reflects the insanity of Australian Politics.
After Tony Abbott was allegedly headbutted by someone who disagreed with him, I’ve been wondering. Do we now value the fist over discussion?
It’s been a long time coming, but the marriage equality debate has exposed something galling about us. We have no time for the view we don’t agree with.
While the Internet agreed to disagree on renaming Father’s Day, I suggest we should entertain the idea, as tradition is only what we make it.
According to the PM, the disillusionment the public feels in the political system has not increased. Well, Malcolm, a lot of us have already had enough of the constant hijinks.
With Barnaby Joyce now in the Section 44 firing line, I think this great Australian witch hunt has gone on long enough. When are we prepared to admit this is doing more harm than good?
The flat earth movement is no longer consigned to the National Basketball Association or the bronze age, as your mum is probably now onboard.
With the Coalition’s marriage equality meeting progressing as well as we assumed, I’m wondering if our national tryst with apathy is here to stay.
With the AFP unable to find anything concrete in yesterday’s raids, we twist the narrative to fit our political station. However, this thinking sets a dangerous precedent.
Malcolm Turnbull is wobbling after his sixteenth Newspoll loss, but the fact that his biggest threat is not Bill Shorten speaks volumes. High times for the ALP to find a voice as combative as their voter base.
It’s not a good time to be a Catholic in Australia. But to assume we’re all morally questionable theological dinosaurs is not only unfair, but shows a fundamentalist devotion to ignorance.
After a particularly notable week of hate in Australia, it got we wondering. Why does it continue to happen? Maybe we’re not as progressive as we assumed. Maybe we’re still the divided colony of old.
Tony Abbott has threatened a return to power. If another leadership spill comes to pass, I say the blame is entirely ours, as we continue to validate their behaviour come election time.
Yes, 2016 was a bad year, but this one is somehow worse. I, like many, am feeling the burn of compassion fatigue, but it behoves us to keep caring.
Barnaby Joyce’s recent performance on Insiders proved one thing. The government continues to state that renewables are an option, while their actions say otherwise. If they pray at the altar of coal, sing it loud.
The ‘unboxing’ craze is sweeping Youtube, where kids watch other kids open new toys. Call it genius marketing, call it morally questionable – I call it an hour off.
After a man sued his date for texting through a favourite movie of his, we’re claiming that it should be a law we all abide by. Having someone ignore something you treasure is a crime most foul indeed.
Despite Mal putting everything into his budget, and the uber right weeks that preceded it, he’s still trailing Labor. Guess what happens now.
A recent ANU study revealed that over 86% of those polled were concerned that they’d never be able to buy a house in the current climate. Frankly, I’m not one of them.
This week, we’ve seen the poltergeist of Tony Abbott rearranging the furniture of the coalition leadership, but I fear the jump scare no longer gets a reaction.
