Easter - a time for peace and compassion

Easter is one of the holiest times of the year for Christians - an annual celebration marking their belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

 

In a rare event, Easter is celebrated this weekend by all Christians around the world, including Orthodox Christians.

 

The date usually differs because Eastern and Western churches use a different system for calculating the date of the vernal equinox and the first full moon.

 

Australian Christian leaders have used their Easter messages to call for greater compassion towards those in greatest need, including refugees and asylum-seekers.

Bottle of wine brings a Premier down

After a 16-year political career, capped off by returning the Liberal Party to government after 16-years in opposition, a bottle of wine has been the undoing of New South Wales Premier Barry O'Farrell.

 

Mr O'Farrell is stepping down after misleading the state's Independent Commission Against Corruption over a three-thousand-dollar bottle of wine he received as a gift.

 

Mr O'Farrell maintains he did not intentionally mislead the commission.

 

Compare this to the fact that many tainted Indian MPs are running for re-election at the 16th Lok Sabha elections, currently underway in India....many are accused of rorting / siphoning off millions and billions of dollars through scams, and some have serious allegations of murder, abduction and rape pending against them in the Indian court system...Your thoughts?
