"Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.”
 
We are told that 99% of Muslims living in Western societies are peace-loving souls. That is backed up by the observation that only 800 out of Sydney’s population of 100,000 Muslims turned up at a recent anti-free-speech demonstration – and how many of those 800 are just blind followers stirred up by a few? Meanwhile, the 99% remain silent. Why is it that the only times we’ve seen so-called “peace” marches organized by Muslims across the world have been when they have in fact been celebrations of the birthdays of their ancient heroes of 1400 years ago? – not one specifically marching for peace. If you Google these marches and read the associated articles, you’ll find that, apart from a few annual interfaith peace symposiums, there are no local, national or international Muslim calls for peace.
 

 

 

 

What is Terrorism?

Terrorism is the unofficial or unauthorized use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims. The Global Terrorism Database collects statistics on domestic as well as transnational and international terrorist incidents. The GTD uses the following criteria to further define a terrorist act.

  • the violent act was aimed at attaining a political, economic, religious, or social goal
  • the violent act included evidence of an intention to coerce, intimidate, or convey some other message to a larger audience (or audiences) other than the immediate victims
  • the violent act was outside the precepts of International Humanitarian Law insofar as it targeted non-combatants

 

A tribute to my Mother

As I enter the seventh decade of my life I look back on all the people that have been a part of it. There were many: some long-time friends, many, many casual acquaintances, work-mates, close female relationships, family relationships. By far the most wonderful person was my mother. She had a handful putting up with this wretch of a son writing now. She loved life, loved her family, loved her Christian God; and she was loved and respected by all around her. She worked hard to raise a family of three boys, her house was always fresh and homely, the garden tended with loving care, she had a full-time job and always had time for voluntary work with her church. When trouble arose the remedy was to put the kettle on for a cup of tea and a heart-to-heart; never a flaming row.

About

Promoting deism since 2004, Positive Deism simply keeps our focus on what deism is instead of focusing on what deism is not. Traditionally, deists have tended to spend much of their time being anti-Christian (negative). However, we choose to focus on deism itself. We are most concerned with everything that is deistic in nature and would like to advance our knowledge and experience of it (positive).
