21 Nov 2017: Heather’s Homily – Partisanship Politics and Sexual Abuse

I wasn’t sure what to write for my homily today, then I switched on Fox News‘s ‘The Five’. The first segment was about Hillary Clinton declaring that Bill Clinton wouldn’t have been elected originally if Fox News had been around at the time. She may be right. That was the lead in to a “debate”* about Bill Clinton’s behaviour towards women. (* The Fox News... read more

19 Nov 2017: Heather’s Homily (What About the Women) and Tweets

This tweets post should be about the All Blacks winning against Scotland. But I forgot to watch the game. Looking at the score line, I suspect that, as expected, the Scots put up a fantastic fight. The ongoing saga of Roy Moore being an a$$hole is, as someone who is a #MeToo, taking a lot of my attention.

15 Nov 2017: Heather’s Homily (Marriage Equality in Oz) and Tweets

The fantastic news in this part of the world, seen in multiple tweets, is that the Aussies have come out in support of marriage equality.

This poll, though officially conducted, was a non-binding postal referendum. However, the... read more

14 Nov 2017: Heather’s Homily and Tweets

Shock, horror! When I did my tweets post on Sunday, I missed the fact that the All Blacks had beaten the French in a test match that morning! In fact, I was so ill that day I forgot the match was even on. There were also a couple of bad losses for NZ sports teams over the weekend. Tonga beat us in a match in the rugby league world cup, which is going on in New Zealand at the moment. That’s a bit of... read more
