M. Shiels,

What is your political, economic, social philosophy? What do you essentially believe in?

You should be happy to declare those intellectual stances, which I think you take and wish to promote, as one does if one can form real opinions. You came here after all.

Fly your colours.
Everything admits of a naturalistic explanation.

Nothing but speculative concoction and self-serving innuendo - the same sort of rhetorical garbage that Logic please indulges in.
Yes, yes well. It might be recalled that this accusation centered around my evidenced concerns that Wendy Francis and her ACL bigot buddies were seeking the names of QLD schools within the SSP in order to target them in some way.

Which our interlocutor roundly pooh-poohed, before departing the scene with all the grace, logical consistency and nuance of Peter Dutton pontificating on how (allegedly) illiterate, innumerate refugees would simultaneously "steal 'Strayan jobs" (ummm, with no language or mathematical skills?) AND "languish on welfare".

It looks like the QLD govt arrived at similar "rhetorical garbage" conclusions as mine, earlier in the thread:

Safety concerns keep Qld Safe Schools list from anti-gay group
The Queensland Department of Education and Training has kept a list of schools signed up to the Safe Schools Coalition secret from the fringe Australian Christian Lobby group due to fears that the release of the list could compromise safety for students and staff.
A spokesperson for department, however, has told Crikey that it decided to reject the request specifically due to concerns for safety:
“The Queensland school names were not released under the Right to Information request due to concerns regarding the safety and wellbeing of students and staff at the schools that choose to access the Safe Schools Coalition support and materials”
Their concerns are not unfounded. At Mt Lawley Senior High School in Western Australia in March, students were harassed by anti-Safe Schools protesters on their way into the school.
No comment.
*Gods* are not only a legal fiction, but a fiction in every way. Just ask the nearest hippie...
