is sex with kangorroo still legal in australia ?
( I mean adult heterosexual kangoroos)
Dude - you are a total idiot
An absolute tool
What a complete fuckwit you would be. You, and Tony Abbott make a good pair. He doesn't have any problems sticking his dick into the good average Australian, either. Whether they be black,white,brown,yellow. Especially the Indigenous Aboriginal, and, the wildlife native to that continent. Like you, he just likes to fuck everything up for everybody. And just like you, he's an UNINTELLIGENT, ARROGANT, IGNORANT ARSEHOLE.
TRACKING ABBOTT’S WRECKAGE
Tony Abbott has been in power since 7 September 2013. From that moment, he and his government have broken promises and hurt Australians. This post will be regularly updated to keep track of the Abbott Government’s broken promises and everything his Government does to hurt Australians. Each separate item will have a link to a source. Broken promises appear in bold and in a separate fully referenced list at the end.

Legal, but no longer actively encouraged
I'm glad to see this thread as Australian Scientology affects me in a number of ways. It seems to me that Australia and New Zealand are Scientology targets since Australia recognized Scientology as a religion. What do you think about this focus and intent on your country?
How is this post related to Scientology? Am I in the wrong forum? Is this tangent that everyone follows part of Anonymous against Scientology in Australia? Or am I in a general forum about Australia?
Is discussion about motorcycles and liberties about Scientology and their insiduous and pervasive techniques or am I in the wrong forum? This seems to me posting to take away from the topic instead of staying on topic.
Question... IS there any legal weapons you can own that have lethal capabilities in austrailia, or is it fist fighting only to protect yourself? They censor gore, drugs, alchohol, etc. Banned firearms, not to mention that didn't work with that terrorist attack a month or so back.
Nah nobody is allowed guns anymore. Just means the bad guys have them and as you say we have to rely on our fists. Which is fine for me as I am pretty much a white Bruce Lee
This thread is in the regional/other countries sub forum. So it is not necessarily about or for discussing Scientology, Its more a generalist section.
There is a fair bit of australian/scientology content in the AvS forum for your perusal:
Lol Bruce Lee, fighting with fists is fine for me, i just prefer to do things.... quickly. it ryhmes!
Sounds suspiciously like justification to me...
More at link;
When did you become so cynical White Tara? Its a nice little justification for Abbott. I think its a refreshing change from the in-your-face, i-dont-care-what-anyone-thinks approach that Sen. Conroy used to try and push through the same thing.
Roll on Tuesday
So Mr Abbott survives another day.
The spill vote:
1 was absent
The only thing keeping me cheerful right know is the hope that the informal voter drew a knob on his ballot paper
^^^ the above means for and against Abbott
as an australian anon i believe that victoria bitter should be free for the masses it is a truely iconic drink and should be shared by everyone
Scientology plans $6m church | The West Australian
By Kate Emery, March 18, 2015
The Church of Scientology plans to build a $6 million church in Rivervale, with capacity for nearly 200 people. The proposed development would be the third of its kind in Australia and include a chapel, classrooms, in-house cafe, library and offices. If approved, it would allow the church's Perth branch to move out of its more modest Murray Street headquarters to the Belmont Avenue site.
Similar "ideal organisation" churches, as they are called, were built in Melbourne and Sydney in 2011 and last year respectively - the latter reportedly for $14 million. Such sites are intended as both churches and community hubs. The church also has offices in Adelaide, Brisbane and Canberra.
The West Australian previously reported that WA Scientologists made donations ranging from $100,000 to $1 million for the group to build a new home.
Australia's 2011 census showed 2163 people identified as Scientologists, down 13.7 per cent from 2006. The church disputes the figures. It did not respond to questions about the development yesterday.
The Riverton development was recommended for planning approval for a metropolitan central joint development assessment panel this month, subject to conditions that include restricting maximum numbers to 196 people.

Scientology building new Perth future in Rivervale warehouse | Sydney Morning Herald
The Church of Scientology's plan to convert a warehouse in Rivervale into a $6 million purpose-built church is the next phase of a national push that has so far involved the purchase of $58 million of property in Sydney and Melbourne. And it claims that as many as 30,000 West Australians have expressed an interest in the religion through visits to their website, online courses, books and dvds.
Church spokeswoman Virginia Stewart said from Sydney that the Rivervale property would be sub-divided and the church would retain the existing building and redesign its interior to reflect its needs. She said the new centre, with a capacity for 200 people, would comprise a chapel, meeting rooms, lounges, a library, cafe and offices.
Ms Stewart said local members had been behind the push to leave their rented Murray Street premises in Perth and had helped raise funds for the new development. "The church is progressively replacing rented premises throughout Australia with buildings that it can buy and renovate," she said.
She said the church's Rivervale neighbours would be welcome and the organisation would aim to grow organically without any need for it to campaign for new members.
"Typically, our growth comes from people who know someone who knows a member but it's increasingly coming from the internet. People do their research and come to see us when they're ready," she said. "We don't convert people - it's up to them to find a philosophy or a religion that meets their needs."
"There are a lot of misconceptions about Scientology. We offer far more than the popular perception."

Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission Urged to Investigate Church of Scientology
Pro Bono Australia, April 9, 2015
Independent South Australian Senator Nick Xenophon has called on the national charity regulator to urgently investigate the operations of the Church of Scientology in Australia.
In a letter to the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), Senator Xenophon asked that the registration of the Church of Scientology (and all entities related to Scientology) as a charity be reviewed as a matter of urgency.
The ACNC has the power to deregister charities registered in Australia and to remove their tax deductible status and other tax benefits.
“I understand the Church of Scientology is registered by the ACNC as a charity with the purpose of 'advancing religion'. The Church of Scientology operates in the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia,” Senator Xenophon’s letter said.
“According to the ACNC's website there are 14 organisations that contain the word 'scientology' in their names that are, or have been, registered as charities. Of those 14 organisations, two have had their registration revoked and one has had its registration voluntarily revoked.”
Senator Xenophon’s letter comes after the airing of a controversial documentary in the United States, called Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, which is believed to include new allegations in relation to the conduct of the Church of Scientology in North America.
“These allegations included that the Church of Scientology ('COS') tortures its members, that it has stolen US Government documents and requires current members to cut all ties with friends and family members who have left the COS,” Senator Xenophon said.
“The Church of Scientology is a global organisation with common rules that apply to all of its branches.
“I am deeply concerned about the potentially wide-reaching and harmful influence this organisation may have on its Australian branches. Based on Scientology's aims and objectives, how it operates and the treatment of its members.
“I therefore request that a review is conducted into the charitable status of the Church of Scientology and any associated entities in Australia as a matter of urgency,” Senator Xenophon said.
The ACNC has confirmed that it has received the letter.
“The ACNC has received the letter from Senator Xenophon and we will respond directly to the Senator,” Acting Commissioner, David Locke said.
In May 2014, the controversial leader of Scientology worldwide, David Miscavige, praised Australia for opening a new church, or Ideal Org, in Sydney.
“There’s a new sign in the southern night skies and it points to something never seen before — your Ideal Org of Sydney,” Miscavige said.
“That it opens directly in the wake of what is a whole new Scientology world lends it even more significance. Because for all the help you thus far extended to the millions, you now possess the means — in this, our Golden Age — to uplift this city and this nation with the unqualified freedom of Scientology.”
A little late to the battle, but I've written up Nick Xenophon's latest initiative over at Infinite Complacency.
I've just updated last night's piece I wrote on Senator Nick Xenophon's latest push against Scientology in Australia (see above for the link).
I had a browse though the database of the ACNC, the charities watchdog, to see if I could find not just the Scientology missions, but the front groups. It wasn't hard to turn up some of the usual suspects -- and as you'll see, it's a game anyone can play.
I have a question for the aussies, is it legal to defend yourself, from a murderer, with your bear hands, and in the process kill him. Would you be prosecuted for murder of your potential killer? I wanted to know because asutrailia is a nanny state similar to cannada just 10x worse from what i have heard.
In Australia, like most western countries, self-defence is a valid defence for homicide.
How it actually plays out would depend on many factors
Anzac merchandise being blocked as inappropriate and unacceptable
By Chris Vedelago and Jill Stark, The Age, April 19, 2015
The Church of Scientology has topped a list of organisations and businesses that have been blocked by the government from exploiting the Anzac legacy for profit and self-promotion.
The Church of Scientology was the most high-profile of a small number of offenders that appropriated the Anzac legacy without permission, attracting the ire of Veteran Affairs Minister Senator Michael Ronaldson.
In September, the controversial religious organisation was caught offering to issue the rank of "ANZAC" to members who donated $10,000 to build a new Scientology centre in Auckland, New Zealand.
The church was forced to remove the promotional material after being reprimanded by the minister.
A Scientology spokeswoman said the error had been made by an individual who was unaware about rules governing the use of the Anzac name.
