Greens move to end prayers in NSW Parliament but do they just need confession?

The New South Wales Greens are seeking to remove Christian prayers [religious bondage] from being read at the beginning of each day the state's Parliament sits.

In any case Parliament just needs a confessional box.
What is politically correct for confession? At the moment, spin. Perhaps what we need is to spin a winner?

Perhaps leaders who are sincere, and prepared to lead by example, instead of telling lies would be a great start?

The motion will be introduced and debated today at the start of this year's final session, which could be this years final confession.

Greens MP Lee Rhiannon says there are increasing numbers of New South Wales residents who do not support the Christian faith, and Parliament should reflect it.

Instead Parliament reflects lies and that's the devil talking to our children and what's worse, they expect our children to believe them, and because no one does anything, then they continually allow them to lie, not just to us but to our children.

So what are the children going to do now? Lie because it is politically correct?

Ms Riannon says a non-denominational prayer would be more appropriate. "Parliament should represent all the people of New South Wales and that cannot be achieved while we have a narrow-based Christian prayer," she said.

"All people, irrespective of their belief system, have a right to be recognised and included in the parliamentary processes."

[Actually we'd all be better off without religious bondage. Having a mentor that leads by some form of example is fine but the 'Universe' is the highest power because mentors can be changed from time to time depending on how they lead.]

Friedrich Nietzsche and his philosophy of the Superman "When God died he left a little bit of himself in everybody." Now what do you want to be?

In essence the prayer is actually the same for everyone reaching for a higher power. Yes higher than Bob Carr, John Howard or George Bush.

The thought that Bob Carr, John Howard or George Bush are the highest power is overwhelming to most New South Wales residents. So if it is not God we prayed to then who? The Universe the highest power.

The Greeks say if you don't tell the truth you just disappear. Or do the liars just disappear? How can we get parliaments in Australia to tell the truth, and go to confession?

NSW Parliament Bitter Pills To Swallow?

One delusion pill: So people who investigate their own mistakes make sure there was no mistake or someone else made the mistake. Perhaps you're not biased and you will be honest about it.

Innocent until proven guilty
Presumption of innocence. A hallowed principle of criminal law to the effect that the government has the burden of proving every element of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt and that the defendant has no burden to prove his innocence. It arises at the first stage of the criminal process but it is not a true presumption because the defendant is not required to come forward with proof of his innocence once evidence of guilt is introduced to avoid a directed verdict of guilty.

The Seed
Respect, you only get out what you have put in. What about Life Skills, Communication and Conflict Resolution. Evolution, perhaps some children and adults miss the whole or part of the course. I did, and so how surprised do you think I was when I realised my parents missed the course as well. Things like Compromise, Win Win, Empathy, and Love. Invisible energy and other skills like public speaking, how to Relate, Assuming, Blaming, Forgiveness, Freedom and Discrimination. This is how I learned respect. If you don't know what it is then how do you relate?
