"RR - it sounds as though the clergy project are protective of their community, understandably, and are cautious about to whom they provide support and a safe harbor.  They have methods for validating clergy who contact them, and given they have…"

"The outcomes of the "investigation" were obvious to blind-freddy from the start:  those uppity nuns, thinking for themselves!  Must be stopped! Disgusting. And sorry to everyone here who thinks this is only a Catholic thing, it…"

"The bible, and therefore the teachings of Jesus, were written by dozens of other people, in different eras, hundreds of years after Jesus died.  However, the bible is what it is, and if taking the core messages that represent the…"

"Fed Square yes it's a folly we have them as well, Darling Harbour would top my list, really just a kids playground with overpriced shops thrown in. Rudd and his faith does concern me but not as much as Abbott and his Catholicism he's far…"

"Fed Square? Definitely one of the ugliest buildings in the world, John, but people flock to it.  Go figure!  Sydney is a beautiful city, of course, but difficult to live in, I think.  Alas, with the population of Melbourne growing by…"

"Oh dear.  That's your take out, really?  Sydney has a big bridge, an opera house, and a magnificent harbour, but for anything else, you really wouldn't go there - ever.  In 2011, Melbourne was, again, determined (by various…"
