    I believe that as we Christians we need not fear the politically correct crowd. We can keep going about our usual activities in a calm and peaceful manner.

    I find that it is not the people of differing beliefs that are concerned about the Christmas message but non believers who want to abolish any of expression of faith.

    I have seen both Hindu and Muslim families enjoy the Christmas festivities and have no problem with what Christians do.

    The best testimony we have is to show that we do not fear man, and not be re-active in our dealings with those who oppose the Christian message

    Hi Jason and Daniel,
    thank you for communicating with me I really appreciate it.
    Thank you so much for taking the land in Dandenong for the Kingdom.
    We will continue to pray that the Lord’s dominion be established in the nation of Australia that His enemies will lick the dust!! Psalm 72:12-13.
    It needs to be known that the nation of Australia is the inheritance of the Lord and that He will possess it!!Ps.2:7-8.
    Let us agree that all those who walk in darkness will see the Light Isa. 9:2.
    Thank you brother Daniel for your example of boldness and integrity. You have greatly inspired me and I will continually uphold you there in Australia as I go in to possess the land in Asia.
    Blessings to all the brethren,
    Sister Shirley

    WOW, thanks for sharing this.

    Will make sure I get onto Bunbury if they don’t put up Christmas stuff.

    Not that we personally get into all that but most Australians do and it represents our Christian heritage and is worth fighting for.

    keep looking up,

    Vanessa

    Dear Mr Mayor of the City of Gold Coast,

    I note that the City of Dandenong in Victoria is preparing to celebrate the coming Christmas season in a manner that reflects the traditional and religious beliefs of the great majority of Australians.
    For instance, their Christmas cards will state ‘Merry Christmas’ (not some meaningless phrase like ‘Seasons Greetings’). And the decorations and events around the city will (at least in a small way) remind people of the true reason for the season, i.e. the birth of Jesus Christ.

    In the not too recent past Gold Coast City also celebrated Christmas in similar fashion, but lately it has become all about commercialism. Of course, the trend has been the same Australia-wide, and the consequences are evident in the society we have become. The further we depart from the Judeo-Christian foundations that made this country great, the worse off we will be.

    You will recall (as I do) that when you first stood as a candidate for mayor you visited many Christian churches and appealed to the congregations to vote for you.
    Accordingly, will you now commit do do all you can to ensure that whenever possible, especially at Christmas and Easter, you will uphold Christian traditions and values in the public arena? I suggest it would be wise for all councillors to heed the increasing dissatisfaction of the ‘silent majority’ and get back on the ‘right’ path before there is a serious backlash.

    If it is of interest to you, here is a summary of what the City of Dandenong has planned:
    “Dandenong’s newest public space, the civic square at the new Dandenong Civic Centre, will be the centre of Christmas activity with:
    * impressive new decorations, including a 9-metre high Santa atop one of his reindeer (which lights up at night)
    * the Civic Centre’s window display will feature a traditional nativity scene displaying the birth of Jesus
    * the neighbouring Drum Theatre will be bursting with baubles and stars
    * our new big screen (similar to Federation Square) will feature a range of Christmas programming – including a Merry Christmas message from many of our local traders.
    Also, our key shopping districts of Springvale, Noble Park and central Dandenong will (as always) feature Christmas decorations including Christmas trees, presents, traditional doves of peace.
    And as in previous years, we will also be bringing roving Christmas entertainers to key shopping precincts – watch out for Christmas Gizmo on his unicycle, Tubby the Christmas Robot performing his favourite Christmas songs, a cheeky elf bringing balloon creations to life, and more”.

    The information above is sourced from the two attachments to this email.

    Cordially yours,
    Paul
