General Immediate Media Release 28th August 2013

A VCAT hearing is scheduled for 16th Sep 2013 regarding the Mosque permit granted by the City Of Casey Council to build a Mosque right next to the site of Catch The Fire Ministries new headquarters and church.

This decision of the council was challenged by CTFM, since Pastor Daniel Nalliah, the President of CTFM is also the National President of the newly formed Rise Up Australia Party, and the # 1 Senate Candidate for Victoria.

Due to campaign commitments before the federal election on 7th September 2013, the CTFM lawyers contacted the City of Casey Council to request an adjournment of the hearing,  but were informed by the planning manager that the council was not in favour.

CTFM and the hundreds of people who opposed the construction of the Doveton Mosque are shocked at the attitude of the City Of Casey Council as CTFM President Daniel Nalliah is very busy campaigning for the federal election and does not have the time to focus on this issue right now, which is scheduled for one week after elections.

CTFM will lodge an official request with VCAT requesting an adjournment, with the hope that VCAT will at least have some common sense to understand that this request is very valid.

Daniel Nalliah stated, “it seems that the City of Casey Council has lost its plot.  First, it hurriedly approved the Doveton Mosque building permit while there was a VCAT action in place and now refuses to consider an adjournment, even after my lawyers sighted that I was absolutely busy running my campaign with 93 Candidates with Rise Up Australia Party.”

CTFM calls on the Council to use common sense and uphold our request.

    Our councils and governments need to be reminded that they are public servants not a power unto themselves. They seem to forget that we elected them to look after our interests and not to be putting forward their own agenda and their own ideas as they do often. When ever a group of citizens has legitimate grievance over some issue many times the wishes of the general public are over ridden by council.

    My prayer to the Lord is that he raise in this land of Australia born again elected Christian members in councils and governments right across this land and that God would remove all those that oppose him in councils and Government bodies that this people would would serve him in righteousness and truth.

    I pray that the Lord would bring confusion on those Muslems who are behind this attempt to build a Mosque next to RUAP and that it would fail even before it got off the ground.

    No weapon that is formed against us will prosper and every word that is spoken against us we will condemn this is the heritage of the children of the Lord and their righteousness is from me says the Lord.

    My wife and I printed the above verse out and taped it to all our external doors and the witch craft activity directed against us stopped immediately

    God bless you all, we love you guys. Allan and Ethel Millington.

    I’m confused – on what grounds should the council refuse the mosque be built? If the CTFM building is “right next door” then surely it’s not a zoning issue, as there has already been a house of worship built in the area.

    Also, this story is filed under “Christian persecution”, yet does not seem to contain any examples of persecuted Christians.
