Mackay based MP James Bidgood has been in political hot water for selling to the media a photo he took of a person outside Parliament House who had tried to set himself alight. Graham Young has queried what all the fuss is about – a view I tend to agree with. If it was wrong to take and sell the photo, it would also be wrong for the media to print the photo – which they did. Perhaps MPs are meant to above this sort of thing. It may have been distasteful in the circumstances, but I could say that about many of the paparazzi style photos the news outlets take.
Whatever the rights and wrongs of that issue, I must say I find this report about Mr Bidgood’s views much more concerning. If he is quoted accurately, all I can say is everyone is entitled to their beliefs, but I hope he never becomes a Minister (a political Minister, that is)
“There needs to be some justice and I believe there is God’s justice in action in what’s going on here (the financial crisis), ” Mr Bidgood said. “(If) we look at Bible prophecy, we are going towards a one-world bank and a one-world monetary system.
“And if you believe the word of God, and you read Revelations … you will see clearly what is being spelt out. We are in the End Times.”
