A man driving a van rammed into the office of the Australian Christian Lobby (ACL) organisation in Canberra yesterday at approx. 9.35pm.
The van exploded. It was burnt out and serious damage was done to the ground and upper floor of the building. Mercifully, no-one was in the office at the time.
The Police would not confirm media reports that the van was carrying gas bottles.
The driver was seriously injured but was able to walk to a nearby hospital.
The Police have spoken to him, and, on the basis of that interview, they have (incredibly) already concluded that the attack was not politically or religiously motivated.
So it appears that it is not being described as a “hate” crime.
Methinks the Politically Correct Police would be very quick to call such an attack a “hate” crime if the target had been a mosque or LGBT hangout!
The Australian Christian Lobby are opposed to homosexual “marriage” and they have received death threats this year and, as a consequence, had stepped up their security.
There is no proven link (yet) between their opposition to sodomite “marriage” and the death threats they have received, but the attack on their office has eerie similarities to the attempted murder of a Christian Pastor, Chuck McIlhenny and his family in San Francisco in the 1980’s. He had taken a stand against the LGBT lobby and sometime later someone attempted to murder him and his family in a firebomb. Mercifully, the family escaped unhurt.
It takes courage to publicly oppose the LGBT agenda (and other evils) and those who do can expect persecution.
Be that as it may. Silence in the face of evil is not an option!
