Tim Blair – We don’t need a Bill of Rights..and other musings

A GOLD Coast idiot was charged with offensive behaviour this week for wearing a T-shirt saying “Jesus is a . . . .”. According to a report in Melbourne’s Herald Sun, the charges were due to the shirt being “blasphemous” and “degrading Jesus”.

More likely the charges were due simply to the presence of the c-word. Stroll around the Gold Coast in a T-shirt reading “Jesus is a paedophile crackhead” and you’ll be safe. Wear a shirt with the lone word . . . . on it, however, and you’d probably be collared by the same Senior-Sergeant Arron Ottaway who arrested that shirty kid. Also, people would think you were a NSW Government minister.

The rest.
