Christians Like Us

In Christians Like Us on April 10, 2019 at 9:45 pm

Let me guess! You were watching ‘Christians Like Us’ on television and were surprised to find Speakers’ Corner is still going. You have come here because you want to know what’s happening there nowadays.

Short answer: it’s all happening.

Come along and find out for yourself. Turn up any Sunday, from 2pm until 5pm, and grab a coffee from the nearby cafe.  Then come over to the University for the People, choose a speaker, and then sit in one of the chairs provided.

It’s better than virtual reality, because it is reality. We are there in 3D and you can engage with us. Be prepared to be “engaged with” back.

We have a Facebook page too, for reasons unclear.

Steve Maxwell is a member of The Greens with a broad knowledge of Australian history and politics. He will give you a point of view that might just change your mind!

At around 4.30pm, Helmut Cerncic explains why Newtonian physics should no longer be taught in schools. He also provides a scientific description of God.


Or, near the kiosk, listen to Ray, a gentle but fundamentalist Christian intent on saving your soul.

Mirko Terzic wears a UFO cap. He has a comprehensive “understanding” of 21st century science, and that makes him an expert in . . . . well, we’re still not sure.


Mark the Grinner is an ascerbic and insightful wit. He is also the troublemaker you saw on the program saying things like, “You’re not letting facts get in the way, are you, Sunshine?” How rude!

Other ratbags contribute too. And, if a passer-by has something to say, they might well be given five minutes to say it, up on The Ladder of Knowledge.

And of course, there are the troublesome hecklers.

It’s all part of the fun. Come along and argue with the ratbags. Or be one!

If you decide you have had enough, we generously provide a large art gallery across the road.
