Without a Biblical Construct, The World Does Not Know 'Common Sense'

"Across an author by the name of Tom Holland, who's actually a secular writer, but he's very fair. And he makes an argument looking at history very honestly that what we consider to be common sense in the west is anything but common sense, right? So I could list off 5 things and someone in secular society would say, oh yeah, every society understands that. For example, not touching children are taking advantage of them, giving money and charity to the poor, natural rights, the fact that the strong should protect the weak, I could go through one after the other. And the argument he makes is that in the west, we are actually inheritors of a Christian inheritance that without a biblical construct, the world does not know these things as quote unquote common sense. And you don't need any more evidence than what you see happening in the underdeveloped world or in the Islamic world or in the hyper secular world, if you do not have codes or customs that are put in place, it is almost the norm to take advantage of children. Look at happening America right now, where they're going after children with this incredibly insidious transgender ideology with medical mutilation or the chemical castration of children, the idea that children should be protected by adults is a uniquely Christian idea. And no one really has the courage to say that out loud. But going back even further, what I said previously and understanding that, it's if you want to know what the left is trying to achieve, they're trying to obliterate many of the distinctions that are laid out in the first 11 books of genesis.

The Godlessness in Our Society Puts Women in a Weird Position

"Let me just say this. I think that the godliness godlessness of our society put women in a weird position that was created to destroy our country and destroy the household and not advance. Let me give you an example. There's a concept of advancement that seems advancement seems like advancement to some, but when you look at it in reality, it's not advancement at all. If I were to go and give you a $1000, you would feel like that you become a richer person, you have more money. But if I don't give you that with the tools necessary or the education necessary to spend at a effectively, I'm not really helping you. I'm hurting you. And I believe that concept can happen with this whole movement of feminism. And empowering women quote, unquote, to be equal to men, not to be reached women's full potential in the country, but to be equal to men and my opinion was a thought from the enemy to hurt women not help women. Why do you say that mister Tatum? They didn't care about you as a woman when they were pushing feminism and pushing what they call women's rights. They were worried about the best interests of the government. Why do you say that, mister Tatum? Because if you weren't working, you weren't paying taxes. But they want to force you on a job so you can leave the home, destroy the family, go work on a job so they can get double the tax.

Why Biden Kept Extending the Public Health Emergency Declaration

"The fact is we would have more people working in this country right now If there was an incentive to get off the couch and get a job But we love mooching All of a sudden our society we love to be a mooch And that's a thing So they'll pay you money now for just about anything They'll give you money to stay home They'll give you money if you make money They'll give you money for everything It's all part of the grand design to welcome Marxism in this country as Marcus written about American Marxism That is how you do it You start giving people stuff Free stuff You start paying their student loans back for them You give them healthcare Do you know that we still have this COVID emergency which apparently is going away may 11th I believe in when I see it you know that one of the biggest reasons why that's in place is because they can keep expanding Medicare without Congress having to do a damn thing about it because states can't turn down the Medicare recipients once COVID's over So they don't going to keep expanding Medicare until eventually you will have everybody in Medicare That's the ultimate goal here That's the ultimate goal of ObamaCare single payer through the government system That's what they want That's one reason why they keep the COVID emergency going But the other is because they can just spend whatever they want without any ramifications Right now this administration is in court arguing that people can't repay their student loans Why Because of COVID People with master's degrees and ancient hieroglyphics and pottery They can't well they can't because they can't get a job because those are stupid degrees But nevertheless they can afford to pay those backers most of them are a bunch of white lefties living in places like Virginia and wash outside of D.C. I mean in those areas But it's never been it really truly this entire time has been about expanding the size of the federal government and getting everybody a little bit of Cheddar cheese So everybody's hooked on it In some way shape or form

Dave Letterman and the Left's Lack of Gratitude

"Wonder how many college students heard of Dave Letterman. Anyway, Dave Letterman was a very, very, very popular nighttime host. On CBS, I think he didn't begin at CBS, but he was at CBS for much of his career. Started at NBC. He was the remember in the beginning he would throw a bowling ball from many stories up. Do you remember that at all? Yeah, a watermelons, yeah, exactly. Well, I saw an interview that he conducted. It was on in the 1980s. It was on YouTube. He was obviously very young. And it was, it was an nostalgia inducing interview. I was never a big fan of his, but it doesn't matter. The lack of anger. If there's one trait that distinguishes the left, it is anger because of a bigger trait that distinguishes the left. Being ingratitude, ingratitude produces anger. And cynicism and all of the darkness with which we see which we see in the society, you must have people in your life who bring lightness. In the sense that, to be around them, is to have a feeling of gratitude, the difference a difference may be the difference in my own life. I have such people. And I try to be such a person in others life.

The Problem With Libertarianism With Professor Thomas G. West

"Utter disdain for libertarians, and I understand you're not a big fan as well. I think only an immature individual can believe in libertarianism. Can you tell us from your perspective? What is the biggest problem with libertarianism as a functioning philosophy? Yeah, you know, libertarians, there's a libertarian interpretation of the founders. They want to emphasize that the founders believed in individual rights that liberty government minimal government, large degree of freedom and freedom in the private sector. All that, you know, it's all true. It's in the founding. But what the libertarians leave out and what the founders I believe were wiser about was, how are you going to have the moral conditions to sustain that kind of a society? You can not have a society devoted to the idea of respect for other people's rights, if people are taught that it's that it's okay to be immoral. And exploit other people's rights. I mean, so the principle of liberty by itself, unless it also contains some duties, duties to others and ultimately to yourself is ineffectual to actually sustain liberty.

Jon Schweppe: U.S. Hides Studies Arguing Against Trans Surgeries

"That I thought was really telling a couple of weeks back the national health service in England, which had really been at the forefront of this and they're push it really seemed that they were pushing it on an agenda over and over again. They actually came out and said, you know, we're pulling back from all of these so called gender affirming surgeries and all of this so called transition stuff because our research is showing us that the vast majority of these kids are, quote, just going through a phase. Right? Well, actually, here in the United States, they try to suppress the studies that show that kids who are suffering from gender dysphoria often desist and grow out of it when they get older. They try to suppress that. But we believe in science here, right? But this is really encouraging. I mean, I think you're seeing this not just in the UK, but another European countries, you know, a recognition that, look, there haven't been longitudinal studies. I mean, over several years, seeing how these kids perform. Here's what we know happens when they go on these medications. They won't ever be able to reproduce, they won't ever be able to have a traditional family, often their happiness, their satisfaction, they don't go up or down. Sometimes they even go down and then you even have, you know, suicide rates, which is one of the things the left always yells at us about. That's why you have to do it. Heritage foundation actually released a report that showed that there was a negligible effect on that. And so I think ultimately you got to slow down, right? This is a new fad that everyone's trying to push. And we can't be experimenting on kids. You know, if you want to, if you're 25 and you want to do that to yourself, I mean, okay, I guess. I don't think taxpayers should fund it. But there's no use in the civilized society to be doing this to 12 year olds. And that's what we're doing here in the United States of America.

"Both are still in. I'm in the air force, you know, you're in the army as well. And this is something that I think is there. Recruitment, a lot of these issues are down. We were at a, I did some of my drill time when I was in New York when I was in D.C.. It actually at a unit there for reserve is in Washington. Some three star general former personnel folks who came in. Now, I'm not saying I've completely agree with what they're saying, but it was an interesting project when I came in and said, look, we're at a point now to where we really need to consider the draft again. We really need to consider this issue of bringing people in like you said. Now, there's an immediate repulsion of that. Oh, we can't do that. We're getting fine. Yeah. But my long-term here. And one of the first arguments, and it was an interesting argument. And I won't name the Republican who actually made the argument, but he said, well, you know, that means that cohesion and morale and everything will go down and they say they didn't in World War I it didn't World War II in Korean it didn't Vietnam. He said, it explained that so it was an interesting argument. I know we're not there, but is at least there's some conversations saying we got to do something different. Well, you know, a couple of things. One, you know, I don't think you have to wear a uniform to serve your country. You can there's a fema volunteer core for disaster relief. There's national parks, there's inner city tutoring. There's rural medicine. But you learn leadership, discipline, teamwork, followership, and you serve something besides yourself with people who don't look or act or came from the same place that you do. So I think there's that's why I call it national service, number one. Number two, I do think we'd have a hell of a time going back to a draft. The Israelis do it, but their population is 9 million is approaching 350. But Doug, you know, I mean, you've got Elizabeth Warren talking about just giving college away and Bernie talking about deaf relief. I think society should get something in exchange for that.

I always know that there may be a story that we're not aware of in watching a video which in any event, in my case, at least I didn't hear any sounds that you in your video. Of what happened, I know they reported what the victim said. But anyway, it looked terrible. There's no question about that. It just looked terrible. And if it is as terrible as it looked, one has to figure out how this occurs while or why this is is it simply a complete outlier in the Memphis police force, which I pray it is, is it indicative of something more serious, whether it is in Memphis or any other city. I'll give you an example. Given the. I'm trying to think of an adjective. The obscene attacks on police. Defund the police, police are racist, et cetera. Who wants to become a policeman today? Isn't that a fair question? I mean, in the not too distant past, a lot of young men and women desire to become policemen, and became policemen. And while, of course, there is no field on earth. That only has saintly people, a lot of cups are remarkable, given how almost daily they meet the worst of society. How would you like that?

Raz0rfist Describes How Masculinity Is Being Demonized

"Question, I have a list of questions I ask all my guests with regards to the topic of manhood in the manhood hour. The first thing is razor fist is a manhood is masculinity in trouble in our society today. I think it is suppressed. I don't know if trouble is the word for it, because it's not going away in the traditional sense, but it is absolutely being demonized. And I believe of also just as often and perhaps just as aggressively, it's being explicitly ignored. Like muted. That's what it feels like. You know what it reminds me of is that interview with the former CEO of Google where he was talking essentially about censorship without calling it censorship. And he said, you know, we want people to be able to say what they want. But we just want to keep it in a little cubby hole. We want it. We want it to be on the side. You can't find it. But it's still there. That's not censorship, right? It's like that. That's how masculinity is being treated right now. If it's not being explicitly demonized, right? That's really what we do and I come, I come from a different generation than you, but for crying out loud, it must have been even more for you. When I was growing up for crying out loud, he was even compared to that, like now nowadays, it's just ridiculous.

Christina Bobb: We Cannot Continue 'Minding Our Business'

"Have to do what you can in your corner of the world. I mean, you could sit back as a listener to this program and say, the system is rigged, I can't do anything about it, or you just kind of take care of your little corner of the world. And if everybody does that, we can actually have a fair system. That's exactly right. And I've heard so many people complaining saying, oh, it's rig. I don't want to vote all this stuff. Well, the people that I talk to when I was doing my investing in one woman, this is an example I've used before. I talked well, I talked a few women, particularly in Detroit that were outnumbered, they were Republican polls challengers and of course there were Democrats, they're supposed to be one Republican one Democrat with them at all the different tables. This is in Detroit. She was outnumbered a hundred to one. There were a hundred more Democrats old challengers than there were Republicans in her area. That is unacceptable. We can not sit back and say, oh, it's the system is rigged. I don't want to vote. Fine. Don't vote, but go secure the polls for everybody else who's going to vote. You know what I mean? You should vote. I don't take me seriously on that. But we can't complain about it, not do anything, and then just say, oh, the system's rigged. Maybe this system is rigged and I certainly have some information in my book to suggest that it is. But the other part of this is Democrats are just better at being involved. They're all activists and we all mind our own business. And that needs to change. Well, that used to be the old joke that you could round up a bunch of Democrats to protest because Republicans were busy working and making a living and keeping society going. But to your point, it's a one versus a hundred. That's not an example of a rigged system that's an example of one side not taking advantage in mobilizing, right? Exactly right. That's exactly right. And so that's my frustration with our own side. It's yes, there are aspects of the election that are rig or what I would call feeding all of the corruption. That's certainly

Doctors and Lockdowns

"If you were looking for a doctor, by the way, I know it's difficult to do. But in a very sweet and I mean that sincerely in a sweet, non aggressive way, you might want to say to your doctor if you're interviewing and you should interview with doctor. The person you entrust with your health or your family's health is a big choice, big deal. So you might want to ask, in retrospect, doctor, do you think that the lockdowns were a good idea? And then your doctor will say, well, some people, it was really important. No, no, but it wasn't some people locked out. It was a whole society. Businesses restaurants, and of course, schools, and churches and synagogues, doctor do you think that the lockdowns of schools was a good idea? The doctor will say, well, I don't know what your doctor will say. But your doctor should say, actually, it turns out it was utterly damaging the amount of damage to children that it did and to families is incalculable. That's your doctor. If your doctor says, well, look, I know that harm was done, but we had to protect kids and teachers. Then what you do is you decide in your mind. This is not my doctor. I have a fool for a doctor as a potential doctor for me, and you don't walk out. You just continue making discussion, and then thank them for their time. And if you want to say, at some point, your answer on lockdowns was so unscientific, so callous and so ignorant. You could not possibly be my family doctor, you're entitled to do so. If

When Should Guns Be Removed?

"The wounded victim was taken into the hospital with life threatening injuries, the suspect shooter identified by authorities as an Asian man. I'm not going to say his name 67 years old was arrested within hours with video captured by the NBC Bay Area showing him surrounding surrounding a surrendering. I'm sorry to authorities at the serifs substation. Now there's no real indication as far as I know of a motive behind that, but you can see in two days you got two Asian people in the state of California who've decided to go off the rails. Now, we all know that many people are going to go off the deep end to try to ban guns. I wish that politicians were genuine and their approach to decide are we going to ban guns and we know that we're going to create legislation or we 9, they're not genuine in their approach. I understand the sentiment. I understand people are like enough is enough. People are just getting mowed down. How can we defend ourselves? And the answer is not to ban everybody who has a gun. First of all, it's not going to happen. Second of all, and I would argue most importantly, it's in violation of our constitutional rights. So what's the solution to the problem? When you have people who are showing signs and symptoms of foolery, then we have to address those issues. And this is where I have a conflict with some people when it comes to the red flag laws. I think that we should, as a society, should be able to remove a person's guns if they are legitimately crazy. Not because you don't like their political views. But somebody who's mentally disabled.

They literally draped a tarp over the painting to cover up the image of Jesus Christ. Because some miserable miscreant complained about a picture of Jesus Christ in a painting.

"Between. All right, let's get to Sal and Q from the impractical Joker appreciation society. Right now, right here, I'll talk as Jericho. So we are here at the ungodly morning morning time of 8 a.m. with Q and Sal of the impractical jokers, and it seems like this is the only time in our very busy schedules we could do this. Why are we doing this today in the morning again? 'cause you asked. I could have asked to do two in the afternoon, but you asked for it in the morning. Yeah, we didn't understand it either. Guys, a schedule those super pact between all the different things that you're doing and one of them is still filming it. We still filming the season, the new season that's about to drop very quickly that I was on. Well, you were on the end of 9, we're shooting season ten now. Already? We don't get any breaks, man. We gotta, we gotta keep shooting before they realize they can cancel us. You know? You were on the last 9 episodes of season 9. So we filmed those 9. And now we're off. We're off to ten. I had a schedule of when yours and heirs and I'm trying to look it up right now. This next week, it airs July 7th years. Now Sal, do you understand why I wanted to do it this week? That's probably why we're here at 8 in the morning so we could get it done to air it next week to promote the show, see? The synergy is perfect. You are professional. Yeah. Well, let's just go one other step here. You mentioned that you wanted to do the tenth season before they realized that you're going to get canceled. Ten seasons of this shit, how the hell did you get that thing? How did you get that past the sensors? We're just starting to look around and realize that we're on season ten. It's been happening lately where we were like, how the hell did we get ten seasons? It's almost unheard of today. And the crew started to look around and everybody started to look around and how much gray are everybody is and how much we're all like, are we really ten years older? And we are. It's crazy. It's nuts. I think when we signed in the beginning in 2010, I think we signed a ten season contract. We didn't know we would do it. So to me, that was season ten. We do have season one rates, but it was the ten year tryout contract. And season 11, you're finally going to get paid. But it's interesting because for this season for 9, at least the whole concept of the show kind of switched because before it was kind of sending you guys out into the wild and maybe there's different episodes, but the one that we did was kind of all in-house in a studio. The studio scenario. Yeah, that was COVID. COVID regulations, which is kind of wild. I guess all of season 9, except for maybe like, what? The first two apps Q yeah, we shut down while we were shooting seat in 9. Yeah, we stopped at season, it was episode two when we stopped down and then we did 24 episodes in COVID regulations. So we had to retool the whole thing. So, you know, but I think we did a good job. We couldn't go up to people no more in public, no more on the street, no more. You know, like just a public area and so everything had to be rethought out. We would even want to make it seem like obvious. So we did everything we could to kind of just like make it appear as normal as possible. You know, the way you have been just have to be a lot more scheduled, like, you know, meetings and PowerPoint presentations and focus groups and just weird things. We did a music studio stuff, so we were behind glass while the other people were doing voice-over. Anything we did one where they were, I think, assembling the people were in our yard, but we were up on the terrace. I think that was, I don't know, I might be confused, but we did all stuff like that. Yeah, that was it. We shot that at snug harbor outdoors. That's why we were able to shoot with people. And then with you, obviously, not to give much away, but yeah, there's no, it's just us. There's no public, it's you. I know it was basically just you, me, Q and Murray, and mer, and that was it. My mom, your mom, that's right, yeah. She was amazing. Was it hard to do a change like that? Or was it a welcome change to shake it up a bit? Or how did you guys deal with that? The only welcome thing was this. We basically, for the first time ever because that show was unique in that like Monday was shooting in the basement of a bodega. Tuesday was shooting at a library. We don't have sets. We don't have every day in a new location, which is kind of a pain in the ass. But whatever, it's the job. So for the first time with it, we kind of rented out, we had like impractical Joker studios, like we rented out this building in Jersey, made it look different in a lot of different ways. And then we have our various method for getting the people that we're messing with to come in. But we drove to the same place every day. And it was a half hour for my house, and there was always parking, and it was always air conditioned and heating..

"I thought guest is dr. Tony meacham electric coventry university whose research interests include comparative constitutional and the different ways. In which different states treats religion. He was previously civil seventeen australia working. In the areas of social security in higher education. it will be providing objective academic perspective on the place of religion. Tony meacham welcome to the podcast. Thank you very much appreciate. You have me on both festival. What motivated you to write your article. The conversation about Basically i came across the united in the newspaper highlighting that there was a documentary called testify and that was screening in the united states. Todd heard of the pets affair in general saints as pickle. Have and i was intrigued about it. Saying i'm interested in concentration lawrence specifically Secularism in the states relationship to religion. Not so we'll twice having look at. What the documentary olivet saying. What was the vegas documentary. And so on so there are a number of points in that duck. I found well. For example they were showing how was being traded around the world that's different states like new zealand. The united states countries in europe and they were the past affair with saying if we're a recognized religion than we should be getting benefits tax breaks of the things that Organized religion only get you so for example. Simple things like if you have a religious headdress than there. Exemptions have getting driver's license four people who have of a recognized religion to have religious headdress. So the way have went to. We should get that exemption in the why not so. They tried to talk. What are the parameters for that exemption will broadly have defining religion through the definition of a hindrance at the point so it making was simply sign If you're saying not a religion proof we are not give us the the parameters by which you defined religion would find what is a religion so i thought it electorally. That's an interesting argument. Had the desert because in centuries past its phillies today's mice countries you've only had one dominant religion and when you said religion what you were talking about. Was that religion in the united states for example early as you were talking bad had christianity in particular protestantism. So the two were interchangeable terms in walden times. However it's been interesting to see. The state tried to determine things that require a definition of religion but having a definition that is all incumbency that covers every particular perspective said so his the the idea of the need to define religion really been forced upon states over the centuries by the emergence of new religions. Well it stopped metro force. I guess Religion has always had a place in communities and with that his head a particular So for example. If you look at the charities act the united kingdom it toys dane accepted that religion has a charitable purpose that the educate people fade them. They do good things so in centuries past when you head in the charities act that the charities act will allow a charity to be registered for the purposes of advancement of religion in the term religion was understood. And you didn't have to work from that. You distributed Way the local branch of the dominant religion we obviously have a charitable purpose Charity full education. Whatever has now been submitted to you in so this should be no difficulty in recognizing replication. But in recent years defining religion has been more problematical. How is religion currently defined in english the pence iced definitions of anything Usually i need to find legislation for the purposes of that legislation for the purposes of just one pace legislation. You might have a dif- nation that doesn't match with others signing Said that the charities act which defines has religion for the purposes of of charitable Would include the advancement of religion than we've got the equality act twenty ten Making religion belief that protected characteristic. And then we've got the human rights act will so to these three have different definitions of relational have different definitions being developed with them. Well i do like lawyer hit but the the pins if you take the charities act it says some religion includes a religion which involves belief in more than one god and a religion which does not involve belief in god which is terribly clear. It still seems to understand what religion is so much of the discussion on nath the charity. Exactly the definition to the courts which doesn't help. Because if you really haven't got any sort of parameters for the courts than the courts really at to make stuff head of whole cloth. If looking at employing the tribunals i've looked at belief in spiritualism psychic powers anti fox hunting beliefs the virtues of public service broadcasting humanism but at the same time they said a Police conspiracy theories and that probably should be for red remembrance day. Not religiously points for example. You get if you're the religious viewpoint that says they should not be like the quake. Quakers tend to have philosophical viewpoint. That says well. It should be self-evident. War is a silly thing. Then is that philosophical viewpoint to adjust individual opinion The fact that's i'm the quakers pacifists should the fact that that debt pacifism is connected with their religion give that beliefs a protected status which wouldn't do if The people who pacifist but nonreligious us vests attorney meacham.

Some of especially the left and i ultimately chose to become an is surgeon. I've been telling everyone for a year now. The doctor vouching and other public health bureaucrats were not following the science. And i've been proven right time and every single. But i'm not the only one who is fed up. I can't go anywhere these days without people coming up and thanking me for standing up for them. Whether i'm at work or events in kentucky at airports in restaurants or stores people thank me for taking a stand. They thank me for standing up for actual science for standing up for freedom for standing against mandates lockdowns and bureaucratic power grabs. I think the tide is turning as more and more people are willing to stand up. I see stories from across the country. Parents standing up to the unions in school boards. I see brave mom standing up and saying my kids need to go back to school. In person. I see members of congress refusing to comply with petty tyrant pelosi.

Why didn't you call it. Spritz season as opposed to spread society because split season is something that all of you know because you've heard me say it but when this shows up in a store and somebody's like what is. This is a nobody people. Not everybody knows what that is. It's a nice thing for us to like talk about it. Spritz season but the truth is spread society is is us like the societal how many fights we got into over the name like over the last year. You had die yeah. It was a lot but spritz society makes the most sense. Because it's cloudy. And i had with like really really good name at the end of the day. The best name one. The best name agreed agreed.

Like i needed people that had experienced starting liquor companies so it's one team is incredibly incredibly important and i would be nowhere without the team that i built was the second question. What else do you have to do like okay. So he built she build a team. You go out and you raise money. Ideally raise money from people that can sort of help move your business. We call those strategic investors. You might not mess sharks. Yes exactly exactly yes from sharks and then from there you start to. Wow where do i even begin. Fine cans design logos designed packaging. There's actually a group. I don't know how many of you toasters were. Were in the original sprit society. But i sent out a form to thirty five hundred people asking their opinions on logos flavors candidates. Ab really some of you may be partook in creating this yet. It's just. It's a step by step process One could describe it as building the plane wallets crashing in the hopes that it sort of source again. You're looking at me strange that i said that wrong. Maybe it's building the plane. Mom flying it better going down like crashes then the. I think it's stressful is what i like.

"To you with a different slice at this. use the phraseology state neutrality. Which many people kind of understand in caroline. I think is right. This is more of a kind of anglo saxon kind of concept but the world of the twenty first century is a world unfortunately of increasing polarize. Ation it's a world of seemingly increasingly sharper social and religious identities. So why isn't it right. In the name of tolerance in the name of creating a society that is hopefully more peaceful more civil in both senses of the word. Why not have a more muscular secularism that creates within. Let's say schools but also we can look at here the example of quebec which is extended the concept of secularism not only two teachers but to other parts of the state and employees of the state. Why why isn't that. In fact a guarantee for the moment that we live in now of a more tolerant society to have these real zones of of true neutrality built into some of our most public institutions. I would say the jury is out on what the best arrangements are across many countries for building tolerance. I think there's certainly a case to be made that one way to build tolerance in civil society if people feel relaxed in their identities and they feel that they're are free to express them in a wide range of public forums that they're going to be more at ease about interacting with other people and this is indeed an argument that's made by a number of a freshly of religion as well. I would point out that there is this other stream thinking about which many call open licy today in france but it isn't just people who are dupes of islamic fundamentalists. Who are promoting this. But i'd like to widen the debate out of bit. It shouldn't just be about the. Us versus france. It's about a secular society is tolerant society. There are other arrangements that are suitable for other countries in the world which seemed to at least sometimes at least provisionally have relatively positive results for example if we took indonesia if i may i've worked for many years there and the state ideology the punch seila guarantees religious freedom and indeed many streams of christianity have excellent schools and universities often attended by muslim students. There are parallels state secular courts in state islamic courts. Inozyme at school systems. Women have held. All major offices are near parody on on courts now in indonesia. The world's most populous muslim-majority country has long been a bastion of moderate islam. It has a robust democracy an open economy and the constitution that protects the rights of christians and other minorities not everything's ryan indonesia. There is a fundamentalist islamist component there which had grown in recent years but nobody caught indonesia a secular country but why people often call it is tolerant society because of the nature of everyday life and the respect that people are able to have themselves across these religious divides in in everyday life imperfect but another another option another way to develop tolerance which is not itself sector. Thanks john so caroline wanna come back to you one of the points. John just raised in. You've tagged it earlier in the debate. Which is the fact. That france is suffering. Terrorist attacks On average every every eight to twelve weeks so some would say those attacks our innocence representation of some kind of societal failure somewhere and why not see them. Why not acknowledged that part of the reason for those attacks might be just might be a generation more of a lack of tolerance towards a specific community in french society and that lack of tolerance was expressed most essentially through your official state policies of of secularism. They've created this problem. Well yeah this is something. I hear very often i. I must say this is the most painful and to my point of view unfair statement. I hear often because for me. It sounds like victim blaming. It says well you've been eaten more bioterrorist attacks so you must have something to do with it so you thinking you implying you sorry. It's it's really something very common. I can read in new york. Times boasts all the time that it implies that french secularism somehow provoked jeered ism and should be more quite about french values. Freedom of speech. Women's rights minorities right. Maybe gives rights to please the jetties so they won't attack frost. Let me just remind you something. Terrorist attacks have been cured all of the other planets. The other countries have been the more hits by. Teresa tag is a julia. It's it's muslim countries. And from what i know Muslims are not at all and are sicker. Resume pressure there so it has nothing to do. It takes time to explain why we have may be slightly more terrorist attacks. I because we are the largest muslim population in europe because we have also mini fundamentalist groups. That are really working. Hard since the goal for again to radicalize the use using of course frustration. Of course there is. There is sometimes until they almost there is. Racism against muslims in france actually used to the few compare a the pew research studies. It's not march. Then they need you. Kate and other european countries but here we have groups. We can really really use it to radicalize people that accept that honestly There is absolutely juicy fixation. The young jewish kids that have been killed in front of those cool have been killed in the name of palestine the other been killed because they were christian as so the jetties will always find a good reason to kill and as long as the democracy the journalists will find them. Excuses will explain that again. This is the fault of the victim. They will go on because that will work. That means that their propaganda. I can work to convince and radicalize other other muslims french or european citizen to grew. It's part of their strategy when you studied them so my position and to go back to what john said my position is that's in this context at the contrary we cannot play that game we have to defend the values of equality of secularism the rights to believe in god not belief in god right now in france. We have a young lesbian. She's under a lot of this threat. These girls name is miller. She is sixteen years old last month. She posted on her instagram calling islam. A religion of hate. Now this was after. She says she received homophobic abuse from muslim commenter. She then started receiving death threats. The case has rekindled francis debate over blasphemy Insulting religion or blasphemy is not a crime in france but the question here in this case sort of his. Where is that line. And we have to protect her because she is the victim there and john is. Right is not only an american french debate. It's.

"A woman praying in church at church for sure these fanatics on the tones of course has nothing to do with the peaceful majority of the muslims targets themself by these fanatics. French secular society knows that and makes that distinction. It's respected its citizens of missing face. What it combat's is political from atlanta. Ism not by intones. The to protect to dylan's thank you caroline for that opening statement. Were now going to go to john. Who's arguing against our motion today. A secular society is tolerant society. John the same opportunity for you. Two minutes on the clock. Let's have your opening remarks. I'd like to make two or three points fairly substantially. I hope the first one is that the general proposition we're debating is on its face. Is the universe a proposition if a society a secular than it is tolerant or. It's more likely to be tolerant. I think as a general proposition. It's it's false. There are many societies. That are clearly secular in that they separate or even discriminated against The public expression of religion or even the private expression and they're hardly tolerant. I would think china would be very good example. It's secular but hardly tolerant impressive of minority religious currents so it isn't emotion for or against france. It's emotion that claims universal relationship between secularism and tolerance. So what we care about here. And i think caroline and i agree what we really care about is. What are the arrangements in society. They're most likely to give rise to respect as well as tolerance across different groups religious groups groups and other groups but especially in this case a question of religious groups and as caroline so rightly pointed out each society has its own set of arrangements which draw from their history that particular experience history is always there with us and in the united states she says. Us religious symbols are more likely to be found in public. The fight there was really for rights religious expression religious diversity and religious freedom. We don't have an established church but there's there's no sense in which secularism as understood here in. The united states cannot be consistent with public expression of religious symbols so this is what we my call secularism of neutrality of the state. The state doesn't side for one religion against another but seeks to protect the rights of religious groups. France of course has a different history. We have an important guarantee of freedom of expression no one will be harassed for their opinions even religious ones and we are grateful to the legacy of france for that reason but also a historic report a force between the church and the state with often misunderstood separation of church and state in france in fact is is a political system which includes intense involvement by the state in a number of organizations that are related to religions for example france massively subsidize religious organizations maintaining some buildings paying religious schools expensive in exchange for teaching the national curriculum and the state has indeed in the ministry of the interior office of religions. I said this is very understandable given francis history of top down governance and conflicts between the state and church but not necessarily exportable so my argument is against the general proposition. But also four dea that there are many routes tolerance and they passed by different notions of secularism and if we think of the united states as an example of the neutrality of the state france then is an example of a different interpretation of that is no religion in the public sphere. And it's not clear to me that keeping religion out of the public sphere is the best way to do tolerance among members of society. In fact i think there's fair evidence. This is probably not the case against the proposition and four distinguishing among different sorts of arrangements. That we call. Thank you john and thank you. Caroline for those excellent opening statements. We're not going to move to rebuttals. So this is the opportunity for both of you to react to what you've just heard so again. Another couple minutes on the clock a caroline over to you first to react to john's opening statement that you've heard just now. I totally understand what john just said about the fact that being in our country do not mean automatically that you are totally houghton and you need to be sickle. Democracy which is not the case for example of china is diana jim. They are secured again regime and that changed everything because as they are preceding many liberties. Freedom of religion is part of them. We have to connect the fact that a country is sick released and that state as democratic to probably the maximum of what we can consider us to we adult so many regime. I'm thinking about a. Jim claim to be securitized itself and used the were instrumentalising the sort of state religion in the case of egypt for example islam and they were difficulty controlling the mosque in order to promote their national. And sometimes they'll nationalist curriculum. It's clearly clear that the government's the state is not supposed to recognize officially the religion and promote one religion of course above another relationship between state and the religion butts. Religion is absolutely not supposed to influence or to be the source of the common law. And this is where situation is so so important and honestly as a free singer as also lesbian feminist. I feel so blessed so blessed to live in a secular democracy because i feel respected not only as a minority but also i feel respected in my right to express myself including in my right to criticise some dogmas. Some ideology that can be considered as sacred for example in the usa where just by example not a single newspaper privileged to about mahama during the tunes crisis affair because freedom of speech is less part of what it considered to be protected then freedom of religion thank you caroline john your opportunity now For a rebuttal you can react to caroline's opening statement wore her.

"Feel anxious and sad suggests a yes so you you have to develop gradually develop your mind. Yeah so if you have negative anxious in heavy thoughts or basically a lot of that is overcome by you know. A lot of the buddhist park comes before meditation practice. It comes through how we live. Our ordinary lives will live with kindness. We live with care will live a compassion to the peop- world around us and the more you can do that. The more ability you have and we'll have in meditation. Practice is two. Things are very very closely related to each other. The idea of doing meditation without doing the other factors the noble eightfold path is not gonna work. You have to integrate these things otherwise. There's no chance that these things actually support each other and work so make sure that you practice the other factors properly. Yes look for the good things in the world mentor. Kindness is about seeing the good another people. And there's another goodness to be seeing if you're part of a buddhist community even if you're just part of the buddha society here in w. a. from overseas you already part of a community through that yeah rejoice that you have these people that you can hang out with you can meditate with. Everyone here is part of a kind of international community. What a marvellous thing that is to have that connection around the whole world part of this beautiful teachings of the buddha take us forward to see the goodness in the world and when you are yourself on a spiritual path. Your future is bright. Yeah that's what it means to be in the spiritual path means. You have a bright future. Because they're doing the things that lead to a bright future sometimes people despair about climate change. They're despaired about co. Villa despaired about all kinds of stuff happening in the world but for someone who has a good heart. The future is always bright regardless of what happens in the world because future is much more determined. By how your liver than by external circumstances external circumstances a small thing compared to how we develop our inner life. If you're a good person future is always. Bright is always positive. You're was heading your direction. Yes you may have some short term pain maybe some problems in this world but eventually that will disappear and then you will be left with the good qualities within which were carrier forward so look at a lot of positives in their look at the positive side. Yeah gradually gradually emerge from those heavy thoughts. Make sure you hang out with good people. Yeah i you take part in the spiritual path with the people who i like minded people and then overtime give it time. Though is that doesn't happen overnight. You will overcome these things. Your mind will become more pleasant place to abide in after a timer okay. christian went up. That way. screener can you bring it down. Excellent okay the last one. This is again from the. Usa doesn't meditation with open. Is that a way of doing it. Having problems with closed eyes meditation. As i get scared and ended up having anxiety later. Okay well if having is closed scares you then do. Have your eyes opened. Can certainly you can do that. I can do that at least initially and then over time. Maybe you can move onto closing your eyes. It is really anything in. Meditation is about what works. Yeah so if it leads to good qualities of mind then it is a good thing to do if it does not lead to good quotas of mind. Then it's it's useless so at least anxiety. Then don't do it because that's kind of goes counter to the path. So but in the meantime also as i said before remember. That is far more to buddhist practice than meditation. Make sure that you develop a complete power for otherwise it's not going to work out very well her so that is kind of an overtime. If you develop the path completely you will find that. Know a lot of these negative things you will overcome them over time and then one you will be able to sit down with your eyes closed down and it won't be a problem anymore. What you can also do is to change your meditation objector. You can have a meditation object which focuses on something more positive. Like doing some meta meditation where you say kind of positive mantra something where you focus on the good qualities of others and that can also help you to overcome those Negative mental qualities. So yeah so do what works for you. Okay that's it. That's it for this side of the retreat. Yes so see you all in three months time. Undersea wanna come down to the monastery. Come here for some. I think there will still be some teachings here but see back. Maybe in three months time or something here so take care everyone. Let's just pay respect to the amazon before we close for today first lewis..

"And stay with the body for awhile. Does allow the body to relax properly. Lowering the world to fade away into the background. And make sure that you are really relaxed. Really at is really comfortable to sitting there before you do anything else in meditation practice and to be able to relax properly. It is important to have a positive perception inside perception that is not a negative way or complaining or anything like that a feeling of goodness inside and one of the ways of doing that is to just have a sense of gratitude gratitude for having a group like the armidale group groups like the buddha society the buddha to give teachings wonderful teachers around the world all the calamitous being together trying to make this practice of liberation happen in your life. I would've wonderful thing that is to have that support and guidance have professionals. Who do this almost for a livelihood. Everyone supporting each other. And if you find yourself thinking too much about all kinds of worldly things just remind yourself gently that it is on the spiritual path that you find real meaning real purpose. Real goals in the world is just an endless merry-go-round. We know real goals no real purposes. What you're doing now is what really matters. Petco of the superficial worldly thing is a move towards the profound and meaningful spiritual things instead. And now i will take the meditation the slightly different direction. Try to do a death contemplation and please only follow along if you feel comfortable otherwise just to whatever you feel is appropriate to start this meditation by. Imagine yourself on your deathbed you're in a small room. Door is closed on no windows. There is no decorations on the walls or anywhere. The room is why the ceiling is why..

"Go to thailand you find that the monastic tradition. There is run in a different way for the way. It was done in india in thailand. The abbot of a monastery has a very very strong position. And maybe that again is a result of the thai i. The more structure more structured society bit more hierarchy perhaps than the indian society again. Thai culture has influenced way. Buddhism is done in thailand. Although it is much closer to the indian original in many ways in terms of robes for example but also in southeast asia you have the same problem with scriptures we have scriptures that would take an later on in which even today are regarded by many as very important and again. I say if we want in australia we can learn something from this. We can learn that those scriptures that are not the word of the that we know. Today we great certainty are not we can put those to one side and we can focus on those things which are the root and the original form of buddhism. So just to summarize what i've been saying today and just draw some conclusions for how we should maybe approached this whole business here in australia. First of all. I again want to say that. Tradition is not wrong in. Its own. Right tradition simply. How buddhism is practiced at any particular point in time and at any particular place and tradition is always different from country-to-country it always adapts according to the local situations and it's good that adapts. Its it's right. It should adapt because this is the only way that we can take root in a firm and strong way in any particular society so we should do the same in australia. We shouldn't be afraid when something is really important. We shouldn't be afraid of adapting things. We don't have to take things wholesale on board according to any particular existing tradition. We cannot adapt things when we see it is right and the criteria that we should use for that adaptation is one. We should always remind ourselves. What did the buddha say and we should make sure that anything we do is in accordance win the teachings the original buddhism the experience would have had under the enlightenment. That is very important if we don't do that. We risk throwing out the baby with the bathwater. We don't want to keep that baby got baby. What buddhism is all about. You have to make sure we don't throw the baby out. And the second criteria we should use having established what the word of the buddha is. We should ask ourselves well. What are the demands that australian society places on us as a buddhist and if those demands that are placed upon us as buddhist by australian society if they match with what the buddha said if those two things come together and i say that is the right time to adapt the tradition that we have to whatever that is when they come together the word of the buddha and the demands of our local society. That's when adaptation should happen. in fact. did not honest shouldn't happen. I would almost say it must happen. Because in those circumstances if we don't adapt in those circumstances we are not going to have a buddhist which survives in australia in the long run. Eventually it will be rejected by australian society. Because it's not close enough to the norms of australia but close enough to the norms of people. Living here then we should adapt to society. Which is here. We shouldn't do this with lighter. We should make sure that when we do this that we're doing the right thing that it really is important and that actually is something which will benefit buddha's in the long run so let me give you some examples because examples always clarify things first of all some examples of the wrong way wrong way of adaptation and sometimes you can read nike people writing about what is and they're saying that will in our modern day and age. You cannot believe in things like rebirth so out with rebirth and we have this buddhism without rebirth. So the right thing we should do however is not just having opinion about whether rebirth is right or wrong here. What we should do. According to the criteria. I've just laid out. We should go back and see. What did they say matt. Rebirth did a buddha say that there is rebirth. there isn't river and that should be the starting point for whether we should accept reject this idea of rebirth. And of course those of your hurt misspeaking here before. I always say that rebirth is a fundamental part of the buddha's teachings you take it out. You don't have buddhism anymore. You've got something completely different. It is so important. It is so central. But if you take it out if anybody rejects buddhis- sorry rebirth out of hand. I say the cannot really be buddhist anymore at the very least you have to have an open mind. Map is things so and this for me. That is the wrong way to go about. Reforming or adapting would is is to throw out those principles which are central to the buddha's teachings and other mistaken way is with say. Take all the rules. The buddha lay down for the monastics for the laypeople. And say these rules. As i mentioned before no longer relevant for the modern society so throw them out wholesale and that does make up our own rules. Whatever we feel is appropriate again. It's the wrong way because the buddha lay down these rules and most of these rules are very important and most of these will have a function that is very important and instead of throwing them out we can instead allow ourselves to just look at these rules and adapt adapt interpret them in such a way but they are acceptable to our modern world within the guidelines of the role but not in a very necessarily strict and traditional way of interpreting them so these two examples the way we shouldn't practice in my opinion of course other people might disagree with that but still that is the way i look at it. So what is an example of the kind of reform that we should be doing in australia. And of course you know what. I'm going to getting at now. And of course the kind of reform that we should be doing is the sort of thing that we did here at the buddha's society about five or five months ago on october. The twenty second we dane kunis here actually putting down a monastery here. That is the kind of reform we should be doing as buddhist in australia. Why because the buddha lay down the female ordination full ordination for women won the buddha later down there is no real reason for rejecting theme and ordination ordination. The second reason is that. As far as i can understand. It is the demand in most modern societies including australian society that we should have that equality of opportunity between men and women. It is considered as a matter of ethics is considered the matter. What is right and wrong in our part of the world so there is a demand for that in our australian society and in all modern societies. Really here so. This is a classic case or the demands of the modern society and the original teachings of the buddha fall in line with each other and then we should adapt. We should reform. We should change things so that they are in line with those two criteria..

"Seven conclusion the coolest greater equality. Greg greater rights for lgbt bt. People like many others is served by having a white white area of free speech and any limits on listen quite extreme cases. Free speech means nothing if it doesn't include the rise of people with whom i disagree so i'm open to people criticizing me. That's their right like even do so in quite strong robust language providing the inside bottom so make false damaging allegations. That's why are a number of occasions. I have defended christian street preaches who have spoken out against homosexuality but they haven't been threatening or abusive just expressed the point of view. And i believe their right but he quickly. i don't believe they should be prosecuted as criminals. We have to challenge them protest against them. Show why they're wrong but criminalization is a step too far. Which side of the line would would you put insulting. There is no right in human rights law to not be insulted or not be offended the right to make strong rebuffs criticisms to ridicule sata other points of view that is perfectly just must in a free society. I've is involved with the national second society in a campaign to remove the insult close from the public order. Act nineteen ninety-six. We argued that insult was too low threshold to justify a criminal offense. We got together with a very broad coalition including seven. Pays like admittedly. David davis with whom i do not normally agree and successfully persuaded the government to repeal the insult close from the public order. Act now that was a very significant victory for free speech. We followed up that success with a further success. A short time afterwards against a government bill that sought to penalize causing nuisance or annoyance. We said these were vague. Subjective terms that could be open to very wide abuse an- again we persuaded the government to drop those clauses and finally pizza. What would you say. The main obstacles that remain to achieving full. Lgbt plus collapsed in britain. Today we have made great progress here in britain but we should never forget that right up until nineteen ninety. Nine britain had by volume the largest number of anti lgbt plus laws of any country in the world. Some of them dating back centuries yet. Fourteen years later with the legalization of same sex marriage and twenty thirteen britain had some of the best lows. That is a phenomenally successful lower phone campaign but there are still issues five win. We're still battling to secure a ban on l. gb plus conversion therapy to reform agenda vacation. Act to give trans people right to self. Ide- buys touched declaration which exist in many other countries and of course to secure lgbt plus inclusive education in schools with no exemptions opt-outs for faith organizations. And all these three issues. It is religious organizations that are kicking back trying to block progress. The number one focus of resistance to lgbt plus rights in britain and around the world is organized religion. The good news is that religion.
