Despite popular demand, The Continuing Crisis is back:
A certain globally-influential organisation has been much in the news recently. You know who I’m talking about; that corrupt cabal led by a weirdly-named fellow whose election nobody understands, and whose underlings seem to specialise in sex scandals, corruption, accumulation of vast wealth, and causing the deaths of millions in the third world. From where, exactly, does this venal, outdated body derive its authority? Why do so many remain in its thrall when every one of its programs ends in controversy and division? Why is it so violently resistant to reform? Why do furious crowds not storm the luxurious buildings in which this group’s elite, unaccountable princelings sit planning their next amoral incursion against elemental human rights? How is it that we even tolerate the existence of this vile, poisonous outfit, with its sickening claims to moral superiority despite a history—continuing to this very day!—of sucking up to some of the worst tyrants the planet has ever known?
But enough about the United Nations. Let’s talk about the Catholic Church instead.
Bali’s most revered Hindu priest, Ida Pedanda Gde Made Gunung, says there is no special place in the Balinese afterlife for foreigners. Seated cross-legged on a kangaroo-fur mat on his temple verandah, the long-bearded sage smiles through gentle Baghwan eyes and says: “What we believe is the death sentence is not always a bad decision. The death sentence is to help the soul of the punished, to free the soul from the bad thing his body has done.”
He says the Australians, if shot, will come back in the next life “as beasts, lower than the human level. That is their sentence from God”. It seems their troubles have just begun.
