The Kingdom of Yahweh sect Down Under that still follows the 10 commandmentsNovember 13th, 2008 - 6:58 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, November 13 (ANI): A religious sect which follows the Ten Commandments, and does not think it necessary to form governments for peace and order, still exists in Melbourne’’s northern suburbs.
Members of The Kingdom of Yahweh believe that laws are written on peoples hearts and minds”, and that governments made by man’’s hands should be opposed.
The people, who believe that Yahweh (also spelt Yahuah) is the true name of God, refuse to register their vehicles and guns, or to get a driver’’s licence.
Victoria Police Inspector Ewan McDonald revealed that such people even manufactured their own number plates.
He said that there was a “relatively small number of people who have this peculiar view”.
“They don”t regard themselves subject to the laws of the state of Victoria . . . they”re quite openly frank about their point of view,” news.com.au quoted him as saying.
“We treat them as any other ordinary member of the public,” he added.
The inspector denied that the members of the sect booby-trapped their number plates, but insisted that such plates were dangerous because they were poorly made with very sharp edges.
He revealed that the group did not preach violence, or plan to overthrow the Government.
He even denied that the group was associated with any terrorist organisation.
“They act in their own interesting view of the world, they actually regard themselves as quite law abiding, it’’s just that they don”t accept the sovereignty of the Parliament as you or I would,” he said.
“People who express these interests and feelings have been coming to police attention for a long time, they”ve just proceeded as ordinary members of the public,” he added. (ANI)
