stupid_idiots_bigThe Australia Christian Lobby seem to be a bizarre bunch, investing a great deal of their time and resources into Steven Conroy’s idiotic mandatory internet filtering plan for Australia.  Finally bowing slightly to technical expertise and simple common sense, Conroy’s hardline stance seems to be softening slightly of late to the extent where (shock! horror!) legal material won’t be filtered.

This seems to have upset the Australia Christian Lobby a bit since it stops their plan to impose their morals on everyone else.  What utter gall of them to believe they have such a right, the right to dictate what the rest of the country can or can not see – even if it is perfectly legal.  And certain people wonder why an ever growing number of people are growing completely disillusioned with the superstitious nonsense that is christianity.
