Victor P Taffa
For the second time in my life some people in both the New South Wales (NSW) Labor Party and NSW Police have overseen my forced hospitalisation in the Parkview Unit, Macquarie Psychiatric Hospital, North Ryde, Sydney.
Homosexuality, Catholic Church & the Nicene Creed
Long before I had accepted or realised that I was homosexual some people within the NSW Labor Party and NSW Police had worked it out for me.
- Firstly I do not support abortion or euthanasia.
- My mother Margaret gave birth to me.
- Homosexual men are not Paedophiles and do not interfere with children.
- Homosexual men and women do NOT try to ‘convert’ boys or girls.
- Homosexual men do not rape or bash women.
- Contrary to some people’s view I do not hate women.
- For many years I tried to deny what a part of me is that led to depression.
- If Homosexuality is a ‘choice’:
- Why would I choose to be vilified and marginalised?
- Why do people have various illnesses that still have no known cure?
- The only person on earth who can hear confessions is a Catholic Priest.
- Who in life is perfect?
- School Yard ‘Bullies’ become Adult ‘Bullies’.
The Wog Ceiling
When women complain of the ‘Glass ceiling’ I have had to contend with the ‘Wog ceiling’ whether it has been for a position in Private Industry or in any of the Public elections or Political Party ballots. This includes the assumption that you are ‘simple’ and are treated as such. That is why my Journalism qualifications are questioned.
When people seek to judge me all other excuses are used to mask people’s hatred of Homosexuals. Over the years I have had the bar raised higher for me than many others who now sit in Parliaments’.
Nicene Creed – Profession of Faith
We believe in God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and all that is seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, one in being with the Father.
Through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate: he suffered, died, and was buried.
On the third day he rose again in fulfilment of the Scriptures: he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshipped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
There are a number of other issues that require discussion relating to some people in society and Mental Health.
Had I never contested Public elections it is highly unlikely that I would ever have been placed in a Psychiatric Hospital. It is obvious that some people in both the NSW Labor Party and NSW Police are bigoted, racist and homophobic against me personally. In a perfect world everyone likes everybody. Had Sir Winston Churchill been locked up in a Psychiatric Hospital Great Britain would never have won World War II.
When the history of the NSW Labor Government from 1995-2011 is written it will be noted for only two achievements: Placing Victor P Taffa in Macquarie Psychiatric Hospital in 2003 and 2010.
