Catch The Fire Ministries has Changed it's Name

Catch The Fire Ministries Inc. has changed its name to Reformation Harvest Fire, and moving forward, you will see references to this name. We aim to complete this name change as soon as feasible and by 30 June 2020 at the very latest.

Ps Daniel Scott and Ps Danny Naliah and their families went through 5 years of virtual hell because they told Christians that Islam allowed polygamy (up to 4 wives) and that it was happening in Victoria, that the Quran allowed some physical beating of wives by husbands, that women were of lesser value than men, and more.

All denied, and called vilification, by three Western converts (who clearly had a limited understanding of Islam generally and more specifically the Quran), and also by the Islamic Council of Victoria.

Yet a Howard government commissioned report, conducted by the Islamic Women’s Welfare Council of Victoria and released exclusively by Barney Zwartz in The Age newspaper today, reveals that what Daniel Scott said was in fact the truth and that it is certainly happening here in Victoria.

Local Muslim clerics accused

The Age – Barney Zwartz  – November 21, 2008

SOME Muslim religious leaders in Victoria are condoning rape within marriage, domestic violence, polygamy, welfare fraud and exploitation of women, according to an explosive report on the training of imams.

The report says some imams apply Sharia (Islamic law) when it benefits men but not when it benefits women, and that they hinder police from pursuing domestic violence charges.

Women seeking divorces have also been told by imams that they must leave “with only the clothes on their back” and not seek support or a share of property because they can get welfare payments.

The report also says some women who were legally separated but not religiously divorced had their husbands enter their houses, demand sexual intercourse and take it by force.

Ironically, Sheikh Fehmi, who is also Mufti of Australia, told Zwartz that he could not understand how the council could write such a report and denied the complaints “absolutely”. “They must have heard stories here and there and are writing about them as though they are fact,” he said. No authorised Imam would conduct a polygamous marriage, and it was absolutely wrong that women’s rights were ignored in marriage or divorce, or that imams ignored domestic violence.

YET, On ABC Compass ( in May 2001 the same Sheikh Fehmi, was interviewed…

… Islam recognises polygamy so prior to 1968 Imams like Sheikh Fehmi were not permitted to celebrate marriages.
Sheikh Fehmi
It used to be at the time the late Mr Snedden he was the Attorney General. So I had a good meeting with him one day and tried to convince him that it is important for the Muslim to marry their own people. But he used to say to me. Well you know Sheikh Fehmi that you Muslims may marry more than one and when we are not allowed to let anybody here for have only one wife. I said to him, listen to me please you may register the first one and don’t worry about the second one. He laughed and said all right we won’t have anything to do with the second one. I stopped at the idea and at the time we had gained recognition from the Attorney General for all our Imams around Australia from that year onward.

Sheikh Fehmi also stated “Islam is the clear clean page which doesn’t change. It didn’t change in the past, is not changing now, it will not change in the future.”

He certainly appears to be denying today something he has previously stated was true despite clear evidence that what he said in 2001 has indeed been happening today here in Australia.

There is now plenty of evidence that Islam, perhaps like no other religion apart from Christianity that has come to Australia, does not change but instead tries to change the prevailing culture it infiltrates to suit it own statutes.

Unlike Christianity, Islam does not promote monogamy, does not promote full personal equality between men and women (thus allowing the beating of wives) and it does not believe in freedom of choice, including freedom to change your religion.

According to this Islamic report and according to Sheikh Fehmi, these are tenants of Islam that do not, and cannot change and will not fit within modern western society.

We should be thankful that the Howard government commissioned this report which I am fairly confident would not have been commissioned under the current Rudd government.

Will the people of Australia NOW wake up before we have the same situation here that now exists in many western countries where Islam is threatening the very fabric of society and seeking to dominate both the religious AND political landscape?

Will those like Mark Zirnzak and the hierarchy of the Uniting Church, and other denominational leaders who sided with the Muslims or stayed conspicuously quiet during the Two Danny’s case, NOW issue an apology to both of them for not supporting their case? That would certainly be the Christian thing to do.


Challenging the flaws of other religions is the responsibility, not only of all Christians, but of all governments where those religions seek to gain a foothold. Appeasement is not a solution, nor is sitting down in the name of interfaith dialogue over a nice cup of tea.

We need to understand what other religions truly believe and the standards they have and compare them to Christianity. We need to vigorously and publicly expose the darkness that bad laws like the Victorian Racial & Religious Tolerance laws try to suppress.

These Australian Muslim women have spoken out. Many of them probably came here to escape the very Islamic Sharia Law that now continues to deny them freedom here in Australia. This is a cry for help.
Will the rest of Australia now listen?

    Thankyou – what has been plaining obvious to some of us has now been published in The Age, no less!! As a christian, I am very worried by the views of other christians who seem to have no concern about islam. All through the Old Testament, the Israelites were instructed to have nothing to do with other religions and even more, to destroy them so that they would not cause the Israelites to stray in their faith. Yet, here in Australia, we have churches sitting down to dine with those who have sworn death to the infidels – and that includes Christians at the top of the list!!

    To the Two Dannys – May the grace of God abound in your lives as you continue to faithfully preach the TRUTH.

    Yes Peter I so agree with this, My husband & I are Pastors in a little country church & we have been preaching & teaching our people about these dangers.
    We fear for our beautiful land of Aust having spent 18mths in Africa & witnessed the intimidation & cunning of this people, & now they’re invading our own shores. Yet we find Australians to be so ‘cruisy’ – like they’re in a comaised state of mind, tolerance has become the flavour & compromise the way.

    Wake up church in Oz! there they have church in secret places because they’re forbidden to hold church in a building. They risk their very lives getting to church! Do we want this??

    In response to Peter’s request for an apology from certain so called church persons. Be encouraged that the wonderful God of Heaven sees all things & the day of reckoning is periliously near. Let God be your deliverer, He alone is just. (And has a heart)

    I was reminded of The Prophet Jeremiah called the weeping prophet, as the call went out to repent He was scorned too. So what’s new? the heart of man is desperately wicked & we have much to weep about too. We have joined with you in the 7day fasting & prayer for our Nation & will call our congregation to do the same.

    Keep your hand on the plough Brothers & we’ll endeavour to do the same however little, here.
    May the lord’s grace, courage & strength be yours today & in the future

    I can not beleive you talk so casually about the menace that islam will bring to Australia.[If not here already]
    I see on the news just now ,channel news, 4th June that our bleeding hearts want to allow the Islamists from western China, as refugees into our country as they are being persucuted in China.
    Well whoppe!!!, probably because they are being insurgents over there, bombing and killing.
    No wonder the Chinese want them out.
    Name me any non islamic country that borders on any Islamic country, anywhere on this planet, and you will see insurgency and terrorism perpertrated on that country that borders the Islamic country.
    The list is endless:
    South west Thailand that borders Malaysia.
    Southern Phillipines that borders Indonesia and Malaysia.
    Most northern Africa countries that border the Arabic lands. Think Darfur!
    Northern Burma.
    India that borders Pakistan.
    Indonesia excusion into Timor,
    I can go on!!

    Wake up Australia!!

  4. 4 Indigenous Christian

    WELL, WELL, WELL…..What have we here! I also just read last week in our local newspaper that the Govt. has given to the Islamic group here $130,000 for a prayer room at their mosque! Can you believe it!! As an Indigenous Christian I am disgusted, shocked, angered…etc… And earlier in the year they got some funding to run seminars promoting their religion-trying to show people that it is a ‘user friendly’ religion. I am amazed at how us Christians and our Christian churches cannot get this type of support from our various levels of Govt. – We also need prayer rooms!!!!!! Is anyone going to support us to get a prayer room?!! THIS IS A CHRISTIAN NATION AND WILL REMAIN SO IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST!!! This is the Great South Land of the Holy Spirit!!!!

    I am also amazed at how the average Christian in this country is so ‘blind’ as to what is happening in our own country! and when you try to tell them, they don’t want to know…or they say we’re to ‘accept’ these religions. One person even said that I was racist! I am not racist- I am an Indigenous Christian, a Child of the Most High God-The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob- and I will continue to stand and pray for this country that our Lord has given to us to ‘look after’-we are the stewards of this country!

    Keep praying together Christian brothers and sisters, whether we are black or white or of another colour-it doesn’t matter-WE ARE ONE IN THE BOND OF LOVE! Acts 17:26 tells us that we are of one blood, one nation….

    God bless You All!!

    It is time for Australians to wake from their slumber. We have just celebrated ANZAC Day in this country and we remembered those
    who made the ultimate sacrifice and those who returned from War so that we might have peace throughout this land. Our freedom is
    gradually being taken away from us.
    Multiculturalism is the trojan horse by which enemies of our basic beliefs, culture and freedom are
    allowed access into Australia. Not like the immigrants of old, who left their old lives behind and were prepared to integrate and accept
    fully the Australian way of life, the new migrants to this great country want to change things. They elect not to assimilate, not to
    learn the language and culture, but to remain in ethnic strongholds where they can form some sort of power base in order to persue their agenda. The truth of the matter is they do not want to change – they expect all Australian citizens to openly accept them
    whilst they critisize the very fabric on which our society was founded.
    Political correctness and human rights have muffled the voice of freedom of speech. We only have to look at the new laws proposed in Victoria to see where it is all heading.
    The Bible calls for Christians to be vigilant. The Apostle Paul warns “perilous times ” will come, but we are all asleep to what is
    really going on; lulled into a false sense of security by our greed, wealth and lust for earthly possessions. We can no longer be
    called a Christian country. If that were true then there would be more people willing to stand up and be counted as true Christians
    and not lukewarm pew warmers. It is time to brush the dust off the Bibles and begin to seek God as to the reason for this loss of
    freedom. Israel of old were taken into captivity when they turned away from God. It will be no different if we in the Western world continue to ignore God and do not fall on our knees and seek His face.
