Tony Abbott, war should not be a captain's call.

For momentous decisions like this, where lives of defence personnel are on the line, it is appropriate that Parliament has the final say, and be held accountable -- not just one Mr Tony Abbott.

“I rise this afternoon to call on the Federal Minister, Mr Hunt to immediately stop the Maules Creek coal mine in NSW. February 15 marks what will be an act of ecological vandalism and economic stupidity,” - Christine Milne.

In just over a week, Whitehaven have permission to re-start clearing of the Leard State Forest for the Maules Creek coal mine.

Meanwhile the Liberal, National and Labor Senators vote together to defeat the Greens' urgency motion to suspend approval for Maules Creek coal mine.

Today, at the Press Club, PM Abbott said -- ‘'let’s spend the money we have on the things we really need.’

The Liberal Party's cruel budget shows just how warped their priorities really are.

Climate change will hit Australia harder than the rest of the world, according to the CSIRO and Bureau of Meteorology's most comprehensive forecast yet. Meanwhile, the Prime Minister of Australia is busy making the Queen's husband a knight. #ClimateHottest100

Even as climate change threatens, the Abbott Government is dragging us backwards. TAKE ACTION -- http://grns.mp/power-back

Tony Abbott is so busy unwinding Australia's climate policies that he failed to notice the global economy is changing around him.

Ben and Gregg get off your high horses. Yes, population growth is central to climate and other problems but complete depopulation is rather self defeating. One or possibly two is okay.

The numbers speak for themselves. Labor needs to keep their word, #ProtectTheRET we already have = 41,000 GWh by 2020.

I'd like Tony to give that address, because most countries are phasing out coal. What's the Liberal Game plan for when coal exports aren't worth anything?

According to the Liberal Party, 'intergenerational theft' is a magical kind of thieving which applies to debt, but not our climate or the future of our planet.

We need more action on climate, not less. TAKE ACTION and take the power back: http://grns.mp/power-back

The Liberal Party of Australia is preaching a religious ideology called prosperity gospel.

Question: "What does the Bible say about the prosperity gospel?"

Answer: In the prosperity gospel, also known as the “Word of Faith,” the believer is told to use God, whereas the truth of biblical Christianity is just the opposite—God uses the believer. Word of Faith or prosperity theology sees the Holy Spirit as a power to be put to use for whatever the believer wills. The Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit is a Person who enables the believer to do God's will. The prosperity gospel movement closely resembles some of the destructive greed sects that infiltrated the early church. Paul and the other apostles were not accommodating to or conciliatory with the false teachers who propagated such heresy. They identified them as dangerous false teachers and urged Christians to avoid them.

Paul warned Timothy about such men in 1 Timothy 6:5, 9-11. These men of “corrupt mind” supposed godliness was a means of gain and their desire for riches was a trap that brought them “into ruin and destruction” (v. 9). The pursuit of wealth is a dangerous path for Christians and one which God warns about: “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs” (v. 10). If riches were a reasonable goal for the godly, Jesus would have pursued it. But He did not, preferring instead to have no place to lay His head (Matthew 8:20) and teaching His disciples to do the same. It should also be remembered that the only disciple concerned with wealth was Judas.

Paul said covetousness is idolatry (Ephesians 5:5) and instructed the Ephesians to avoid anyone who brought a message of immorality or covetousness (Ephesians 5:6-7). Prosperity teaching prohibits God from working on His own, meaning that God is not Lord of all because He cannot work until we release Him to do so. Faith, according to the Word of Faith doctrine, is not submissive trust in God; faith is a formula by which we manipulate the spiritual laws that prosperity teachers believe govern the universe. As the name “Word of Faith” implies, this movement teaches that faith is a matter of what we say more than whom we trust or what truths we embrace and affirm in our hearts.

A favorite term in the Word of Faith movement is “positive confession.” This refers to the teaching that words themselves have creative power. What you say, Word of Faith teachers claim, determines everything that happens to you. Your confessions, especially the favors you demand of God, must all be stated positively and without wavering. Then God is required to answer (as though man could require anything of God!). Thus, God's ability to bless us supposedly hangs on our faith. James 4:13-16 clearly contradicts this teaching: “Now listen, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.’ Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.” Far from speaking things into existence in the future, we do not even know what tomorrow will bring or even whether we will be alive. 

Instead of stressing the importance of wealth, the Bible warns against pursuing it. Believers, especially leaders in the church (1 Timothy 3:3), are to be free from the love of money (Hebrews 13:5). The love of money leads to all kinds of evil (1 Timothy 6:10). Jesus warned, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions” (Luke 12:15). In sharp contrast to the Word of Faith emphasis on gaining money and possessions in this life, Jesus said, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal” (Matthew 6:19). The irreconcilable contradictions between prosperity teaching and the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ is best summed up in the words of Jesus in Matthew 6:24, “You cannot serve both God and money.”

+OBAIA "If  ABC SBS were  commercial enterprises ..." So to bust your fallacy wide open, the ABC and SBS are NOT "commercial enterprises". Sorry.
Learn the difference between for the good of all over the good of profits for a few.
