    [–] PSA: the most you should be paying for an individual Rapid Antigen Test in Australia is $25.00. Frankenclyde 20 points ago in CoronavirusDownunder

    This is excellent analysis obviously - but it really just highlighted to me that these tests should be free. Leaving it to the free market with all the crap we’ve heard about going on is just crazy.

    It’s just a reminder of how out of touch this government is.

    Hillsong is also a tax haven for pedophiles - that doesn’t mean it’s okay to abuse children.

    Yes… but I’m not sure how that could ever be proven especially outside of Serbia by Australian authorities

    What do you mean?

    You do realise the government who made this decision is a conservative one?

    [–] Novak Djokovic's visa cancelled, tennis player to be deported Frankenclyde 2745 points ago in sports

    Immigration Minister Alex Hawke has used his ministerial powers to personally cancel Novak Djokovic's visa, after the tennis star won a court case earlier this week against his previous cancellation.

    Mr Hawke said he cancelled the visa on "health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so".

    The tennis star's legal team has indicated they intend to file an injunction against the minister's decision in a bid to allow him to stay and play in the Australian Open.

    More to come.

    It was re-instated on the grounds of procedural fairness - Border Force did not allow Novak sufficient time to respond to the intention to cancel his via.

    It has now been canceled it seems on the grounds of health and safety - given Novak is not vaccinated (and anti-vax) and did not isolate after finding out he was COVID positive.

    [–] NSW Police confirm no fine for Hillsong Frankenclyde 142 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in CoronavirusDownunder

    Rules are rules except if you are rich, famous or an evangelical Christian.

    We sent in the police and army to patrol the streets of Southwest Sydney just a few months ago - issuing thousands of fines to residents. Helicopters flew constantly overhead.

    Earlier this week the Premier threatened residents with $1,000 fines for not uploading positive RAT test results (assuming they could even find a test).

    But for a large scale music festival with hundreds of happy clapper youth singing and dancing in close proximity - the perfect settings for a super spreader event, a blind eye is turned.

    All this while music festivals and nightclubs are closed.

    It’s hypocrisy in the extreme.

    [–] Medical Miracle: Government halt the spread of Covid by just declaring everywhere a Hillsong Church Frankenclyde 16 points ago in CoronavirusDownunder

    The Federal Government have today declared victory in their battle against the Omicron variant of Covid, by simply declaring the entire country a Hillsong Church, thereby rendering the virus unable to spread. The idea was first formulated after scientists noticed the government had given Hillsong exemptions to hold massive concerts while all other live music was shut down, on the grounds that Covid knows not to spread when it’s in a Church.

    “This is a great plan and it will really streamline things,” explained a government representative. “Now we no longer have to waste any more time on the Religious Discrimination Bill as everywhere is holy land and we’re free to persecute as we see fit. Look out anyone who has spoketh unkindly about their butcher’s spouse or concubine because the New Testament is now law.”

    However not everyone is pleased with the decision, with some scientists expressing doubts before being stoned to death for witchcraft. “I just OW think we should OW maybe OW COME ON THAT WAS TECHNICALLY MORE OF A BRICK” said one scientist in between pelts, “hold on OW can we just think about whether this is a sensible OW plan OW fine suit yourselves.”

    [–] Compromise reached: Australian Open to be held inside a Hillsong Church Frankenclyde 99 points ago in australia

    Tennis Australia officials have today reached a compromise with the Australian government over the status of international tennis star and wifi password Novak Djokovic, after an agreement was reached were all unvaccinated players will hold their matches inside a Hillsong, where the virus is unable to get them.

    For extra precaution, the government will also be deploying its new $3.5 billion fleet of tanks, which will be used to defend Australians by shooting any virus out of the air should it turn up. “Once again I have safeguarded Australians with my great planning and forethought,” explained the Prime Minister. “I may have failed to stop Djokovic, and yes we might not have any tests, and admittedly I may not have built those quarantine venues, and also I might have stuffed up the vaccines, and yes there’s now booster issues too, and sure there might not be food in the shops, and yes I’ll admit the budget surplus never happened, but rest assured I did go out of my way to make sure safety rules don’t apply to Churches, and in the end isn’t that the most important thing?”

    Employers are doing this to employees as well - so it doesn’t surprise me that it’s happening to students.

    Welcome to the world of personal responsibility and protecting the free market - brought to you by a federal government that couldn’t care less about you.

    [–] Sydney pub to hold ‘Sunday Service’ event in response to Hillsong camp controversy Frankenclyde 416 points ago in CoronavirusDownunder

    If Hillsong can maintain they did nothing wrong and keep a straight face then I really can’t see any issue here. Good on them for highlighting the absurdity in the current restrictions.

    And seriously fuck Hillsong - what a disgraceful organisation.

    [–] Scott White admits to murdering Scott Johnson, solving one of Sydney's longest-running gay hate crimes Frankenclyde 1 points ago in sydney

    Scott White has admitted to murdering American mathematician Scott Johnson, whose body was found at the bottom of a Sydney cliff more than 30 years ago.

    The death of Mr Johnson had been one of Sydney's longest-standing murder mysteries, and although police considered it a suicide for many years, his family always believed it was a gay hate crime.

    In 2020, detectives charged White, 49, with the murder of Mr Johnson after a key informant named him as a suspect.

    White pleaded not guilty last year. It is understood White confessed to the murder on Monday, but it was kept secret while his barrister tried to argue he was not fit to make that admission.

    The first inquest found he took his own life, while the second returned an open finding. At the third inquest, NSW Coroner Michael Barnes found Mr Johnson was the victim of a gay hate crime and fell off the cliff as a result of actual or threatened violence.

    A fisherman found Mr Johnson's naked body on rocks at Bluefish Point in North Head, Manly, with his neatly-folded clothes discovered on the cliff above.

    At the time there were many reports of gangs committing gay hate assaults in the North Head area where Mr Johnson was found, and police allege the murder was motivated by "absolute" hatred of him as a gay man.

    In 2018, the NSW government announced a $1 million reward for information that led to the arrest and conviction of Mr Johnson's killer or killers.

    In 2020, Mr Johnson's brother Steve Johnson doubled the police reward for new information about the death.

    May he Rest In Peace and his family and friends move towards finally having some closure following years of pain as a result of this terrible crime. I hope this focus continues and others can be found and brought to justice.
