Moral judgements make the ABC a laughing stock

Symbolized by the cynical change of Compass to The Moral Compass,  ABCTV  has finally come full circle and "accepted "( still some denialists in there?) that every institution and presenter "who goes along to church "has a faith .

More importantly. ABC admitted that unlike the bad ( good ??who knows these days ) old days when they promoted "morality is bunk" ( eg faith that "science will tell you how to live not some old framework from past )
They see Progress ,  in the WGP religion as adaption - looks more like a revamped view from their christian heritage .A rear end collision or revolution?
After all Feine ( Tuesday)and Uhlmann ( saying how Greens will live forever and all things good about how they " do things"  are full of their very OWN  adjectives of moral judgments--" good"+ bad "   Not acceptable  for public paid reporters ,( Feine even said someone must be a "liar" if they didn't agree with him( listen to the transcripts Tuesday 5th May 2015)  .

Beware  

A pure belief in progress without believing in a light and a direction, can clearly mean you quickly go around in circles and are seen to be doing so (Our  evidence based approach)-   we are your honest friends here . Watch your ABC if you can bear it , I'd rather watch fish in a bigger pond 

The hero of Fabianism knew this better than most of those who feign him . He played with the idea of change but only because he had in his piggy bank  the moral framework of a " good girl " and a  good moral teacher, ( I have the divine spark within me) So why was the idea of Pygmalion so engaging but the product of all that excitement about the new age , change and equality  so unproductive  ( shaw's support for the revolution ) His mother and he appear in the play but like most Westerners he ignored the safe framework from which creative tensions arose .  The recognition of that fact led his friend Gilbert to lower his status to that of a mere plagiarizer and heretic . Shaw for all his wisdom led people astray in the same way as many of his less reactionary and unthinking comrades did . Do you want to remembered for the same - half stating the case or worse ridiculing your parents most insistent words ?

Be sure you know what mix of tried and tested you apply to your own life before you do what secularism not tries to do to us - squeeze us into its own very tight mould .and denial of its ineffectiveness in motivating.

ABC innovative or predictable ? Open or closed ? Superficial or substantive ?

Jon Feine who clearly has spent far too long cocooned in the ABC,  has his ultimate faith in Innovation . "If you are doing what you were doing ten years ago" , it seems to him , you R a dinosaur . He didn't need to tell us yesterdaywhat his church affiliation is - we have known for years; we at least ave been listening  (The church of the wonderful God of  Progress   WGP )
Yes Iview makes sense and is a sound innovation . .Feine being the monocultural believer he is , cannot see sideways . Jon hasn't weighed up the big picture in his own program where he still controls the discussion ( see notes on774 blog about this years ago)
ABC's stale old  list ( just a few egs)
- Lack of innovation in youth programs like no  community TV ,
-the dumb and dangerous "do what you like "( WGP) sunday school" of Rage .Ultimately "kids will learn" (WGP doctrine), who cares if such innovation breaks up families?
-SOSO  formula for promoting science haven't changed - only got more flashy ( Quantum , Science show, docos on Sunday night )
-- One might rationally assume  there important for church teaching doctrine - that's why they don't change ??

What too many ABC pewpreachers  lack,  as advocates of the truth,  is the understanding that our religious views can cloud our objectivity - all us . Feine like Tony  Jones regularly interrupts and controls the discussions on their programs  ( if need to justify this watc them try  to discuss 10 totally diiferent distraction items in one hour ---prejudice delivered predictably .
Tony Jones runs the only party in town where the conversation amongst the  biggest celebrities in town is controlled by him .And noone complains about his Fuhrer like behaviur esp managemnet who fund him to be so
Jones tries to make it fun but really its his gig and he doesn't really laugh. Last nights charity gala event said to support the poor in disaster areas looked more like  a specific good image gig for Peter Singer whose very own charity and political causes were given all the bright lights.,,,,,,, and we left unfed .
