Thank You, Lord is the story of how the government stole Gary Atkins’ children after his wife left him. He lost his life’s earnings when a mortgagor sold him up. Although alone and homeless, God comforted him. The Bible inspired Atkins to fight back to eventually become reunited with his children and regain financial stability.
Dear Editor, Never forget that Murray-Darling concerns originally saw proposals for thousands more gigalitres of water to be ‘returned’ to the river system. Farmers and river-reliant communities would have been sacrificed to achieve that, and that’s why farmers burned early drafts of the Basin Plan. States furiously negotiated – even sued – but ultimately handed their powers to the Commonwealth to lock in a Basin Plan balancing the ‘triple bottom line’ of social, economic and environmental needs. Water buyback decimated river communities and the constitutional power the commonwealth laws rely upon is a treaty power, founded solely on environmental treaties. The Basin Plan will now be attacked by radical environmentalists, who only see a river, not farms, river communities or pipelines to Adelaide and South Australia’s regional centres. People, farmers, river communities and SA’s regional economy need water - and they care about the River. Don’t let radicals throw the baby out with the river water - we're smarter and better than that.

31 January 2019 Vol. 5 No. 4

  Volume 5 of the Coober Pedy News is dedicated to:

  1. the Repeal of the Family Law Act 1975, the Australian act of parliament, which,   like its counterparts in other Western countries, through its concept of ‘no-fault divorce’, allows adultery, and does not call adulterers to account; 

  2. the enactment of a law which would allow divorce on one ground only – adultery – which, of course, would have to be proved; 

  3. the Repeal of any law which does not support marriage as being between a man and a woman, voluntarily entered into for life; 

  4. the enactment of laws which would support marriage, by bringing to account spouses who behave in a manner which threatens the stability of the marriage relationship, eg adultery, desertion, refusal to consummate a marriage, habitual cruelty, rape, sodomy, bestiality, habitual drunkenness, imprisonment, lack of reasonable means of support, attempt to murder, violence; 

  5. the enactment of a law which would allow married couples to separate, in difficult times, with a view to being either reconciled, or remaining single and celebate.


"The divorce revolution has unleashed a trail of social destruction and devastation. And the Family Courts have done their bit to decimate fatherhood. The Family Law Act and all that goes with it has done so much damage to so many that the best thing may be to simply put it out of its misery, and start afresh."

Christian Today Thursday 13 September 2018 'The War on Fatherhood'

According to Wikipedia, 'no-fault divorce' came into law first in Russia, in 1917.
"The first modern no-fault divorce law was enacted in Russia in December 1917 following the October Revolution of the same year. Regarding marriage as a bourgeois institution, the new government transferred divorce jurisdiction from the Russian Orthodox Church to the state courts, which could grant it on application of either spouse."
