I have mentioned several times before that Tasmania, the small, quiet Island where the Tavern is located, has introduced a vicious Law that not only enables the killing of babies but will jail anyone who speaks out against it.
It is Anti-Life
It completely ignores the Declaration of Human Rights which specifically calls upon legislators to protect the unborn.
It is anti-Freedom of Speech.
The new Abortion Act here allows magistrates to fine a person $9750 and or Jail them for a year for daring to voice their sadness, objection, warnings and even prayers against abortion.
It is Totalitarian
St Augustine was the first to make it very clear that breaking an immoral law is a DUTY, although Aristotle, who gave his life much earlier in such a circumstance is famous for alluding to this 'fact of Life'.
“It is not always the same thing to be a good man and a good citizen.”
― Aristotle, Selected Writings From The Nicomachean Ethics And Politics
Which do I choose? Good Man or good little citizen?
Which do you choose? To do what is Right or do what some misguided, perverted, evil politicians tell you to do? With threats of force.
Some time ago I wrote to all the Legislators in both Houses of the Tasmanian Government and told them clearly that were they to pass this awful law, I would break it.
A Knight has to do what a Knight has to do.
Even when his Knightly days are past and he is a simple Tavern Keeper.
Today, I sat outside the abortion clinic, at 'ground zero' of the 'forbidden zone', and said the Rosary.
A quiet Prayer. 60 odd in fact.
I walked across the road (still within the zone) to the nearest MP's office, Lisa Singh's, and reported to her staff that I had just broken the Feminist-Socialist, unGodly MP's awful law.
I will do it again next Tuesday.
I will pray the Rosary for the mothers facing such an awful choice;
for the Fathers who are already denied any voice;
for their babies who may be legally torn to pieces as if they had been condemned by a medaeval Queen;
for the Doctors who care more for money than for life and disregard their oath to 'do no harm';
for the nurses who do such wicked things to their sisters;
for the Politicians who are so devoid of empathy and understanding, so blind to reality and life that they think they can defy God's Law and force me to obey theirs.
I pray that Grace comes to them to change their minds, seek repentance and forgiveness and heal their Souls.
I will do so until a Police'person' with a Gun comes against me.
Violence is all that Governments, especially Socialist governments know.

I was a soldier for many years. The Nuremburg Trials sent a strong message to all soldiers.
OBEYING ORDERS IS NO DEFENCE
A Soldier MUST disobey an unlawful or immoral order.
I could do with a few Prayers for me too.
Pax Dei Vobiscum.
