Since Christians are often the ones at the forefront of offering genuine help and healing in this area, this is a direct assault on biblical Christianity. Indeed, the Bible is a book about transformation – about how God can set people free and make them into new persons with new desires. So clearly the Bible itself is seen as a book filled with “hate speech” according to these militant misotheists. Surely Bibles and Christian literature will be among the documents seized by the authorities as they bring their reign of terror upon all those who dare to stand against the sexual revolutionaries.
‘Bill is writing about the deplorable situation in North Korea or Communist China again’ you might be thinking. Nope, he is writing about the deplorable situation in Victoria, Australia. This state is under the most tyrannical, hyper-leftist and Christophobic leader in the country.
So great is the anti-Christian bigotry that other jurisdictions around the world are following Victoria’s example. But more on that in a moment. I have long documented the hatred Dan Andrews has for faith, family and freedom. His latest outrage of course was the ‘conversion therapy’ bill which will criminalise Christians for simply praying for someone.
If a person struggling with unwanted sexual attractions asks you for some help, and you counsel them a bit, and even offer to pray for them, in the People’s Republik of Victoria you can now be thrown in prison for ten years. Yes, ten years in the slammer simply for praying for someone who seeks your help.
And Andrews is surrounded by his militant henchmen who are fully willing to carry out this ugly persecution of all those who dare to resist The Dictator and who do not go along with his hateful legislation. Consider a piece in the Melbourne Age from yesterday.
The headline is ominous enough: “Gay conversion practitioners be warned, the human rights watchdog has its eye on you.” The piece begins this way:
Victoria’s human rights commission intends to use the full range of its new powers to investigate church groups and other organisations engaged in gay conversion practices, including seizing documents and pursuing them in court if they do not comply with orders.
But departing Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commissioner Kristen Hilton told The Age her office also wanted to educate faith leaders and the broader community about the harm caused to LGBTI people by suggesting there is something wrong with homosexuality.
The Andrews government gave the commission wide-ranging powers as part of its ban on gay conversion practices earlier this month, and Ms Hilton said the commission would not be shy about using them.
Debate about the legislation has largely focused on criminal sanctions – including up to 10 years in jail – for anyone found to have caused serious harm by attempting to change or suppress someone’s sexuality and gender identity. But much of the impact is likely to come from the civil scheme, which gives the commission the power to conduct own-motion investigations, force people to attend hearings and comply with orders through the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, and create education programs to prevent such practices. http://www.theage.com.au/national/victoria/gay-conversion-practitioners-be-warned-the-human-rights-watchdog-has-its-eye-on-you-20210225-p575uu.html

There you have it: Christianity, Scripture and prayer are all now being criminalised in Victoria. This is not some bit of futuristic science fiction, or the stuff of some dystopian novel. This is reality right now, right here in Victoria. Every person who claims to be a true disciple of Jesus Christ should be utterly appalled at what is taking place here.
We are very quickly heading to the same things that we find in atheistic hellholes like North Korea. Hardcore persecution is always preceded by softcore persecution, and it builds up incrementally. Sadly I fear that by the time most Christians finally wake up to what is actually happening, it will be too late.
The assault on basic human rights, religious freedom, and democracy itself is well under way. Soon it will indeed be too late to complain about this. Soon we will all be herded off to the re-education camps until we learn to think as the State wants us to think. And if you think this could never happen, you may just be part of the problem.
In fact, this diabolical anti-freedom and anti-Christian bigotry that exists in Victoria has inspired others around the Western world to do just the same. Check out this article from the UK:
An LGBT activist has called for Christians to be banned from praying for someone with unwanted same-sex attraction. Writing in The Independent, Matthew Hyndman, who co-founded the lobby group Ban Conversion Therapy, denies that anyone willingly seeks out such help. “The pernicious power of prayer must be dealt with”, he said….
