    In opposition, Rudd called climate change “the greatest moral, economic and social challenge of our time”, but this “Christians” approval of gay marriage [ poofters and lesbians ] is made without concern for Christian ethics but merely as a matter of his own opinion. I wonder if he says Amen after the recital of the “Lords Prayer” before each session of Parliament?

    Leviticus 18:22 – Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.

    Jude 1:7 – Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

    Society
    .
    Some commentators have described Rudd as a social conservative.[140][141] He has moved to remove financial discrimination against LGBT couples, but he had previously been opposed to legislation to recognize same-sex marriage.[142]
    .
    In May 2013, however, Rudd announced he had changed his position based on personal experience and the fact that his children had long thought him “an unreconstructed dinosaur” for not supporting marriage equality legislation. He went on to say that “I believe the secular Australian state should be able to recognise same sex marriage” while opposing any compulsion for churches to marry same-sex couples if that was not their wish.[143]
    .
    In a conscience vote in 2006, Rudd supported legislation to transfer regulatory authority for the abortion-inducing drug RU486 from the federal Minister For Health to the Therapeutic Goods Administration, removing the minister’s veto on the use of RU486 in Australia. Rudd said that “For me and for the reasons I have outlined, the life of the unborn is of great importance. And having tested these reasons with men and women of faith, and men and women of science, that I’ve decided not to oppose this bill. “[144]
    .
    In another 2006 Parliamentary conscience vote, Mr Rudd voted against legislation to expand embryonic stem cell research[145]
    .
    Religion
    .
    Rudd and his family attend the Anglican church of St John the Baptist in Bulimba in his electorate. Although raised a Roman Catholic, Rudd began attending Anglican services in the 1980s with his wife.[16] In December 2009, Rudd attended a Catholic Mass to commemorate the canonisation of Mary MacKillop at which he received Holy Communion. Rudd’s actions provoked criticism and debate among both among political and religious circles.[146] A report by The Australian quoted that Rudd embraced Anglicanism but at the same time did not formally renounce his Catholic faith.[147]
    .
    Rudd is the mainstay of the parliamentary prayer group in Parliament House, Canberra.[148] He is vocal about his Christianity and has given a number of prominent interviews to the Australian religious press on the topic.[149] Rudd has defended church representatives engaging with policy debates, particularly with respect to WorkChoices legislation, climate change, global poverty, therapeutic cloning, and asylum seekers.[150] In an essay in The Monthly,[150] he argued:
    .
    A [truly] Christian perspective on contemporary policy debates may not prevail. It must nonetheless be argued. And once heard, it must be weighed, together with other arguments from different philosophical traditions, in a fully contestable secular polity. A Christian perspective, informed by a social gospel or Christian socialist tradition, should not be rejected contemptuously by secular politicians as if these views are an unwelcome intrusion into the political sphere. If the churches are barred from participating in the great debates about the values that ultimately underpin our society, our economy and our polity, then we have reached a very strange place indeed.
    .
    He cites Dietrich Bonhoeffer as a personal inspiration in this regard.[151]
    .
    In May 2008, Rudd was drawn into the controversy over photographic artist Bill Henson and his work depicting naked adolescents as part of a show due to open at an inner-city gallery in Sydney. In a televised interview, Rudd stated that he found the images “absolutely revolting”[152] and that they had “no artistic merit”.[153] These views swiftly drew censure from members of the “creative stream” who attended the recent 2020 Summit convened by Rudd, led by actor Cate Blanchett.[154]
    .
    When in Canberra, Rudd and Rein worship at St John the Baptist Church, Reid, where they were married.[13] Rudd often does a “door stop” interview for the media when leaving the church yard.[155]

    What a low act this is –

    .
    Lopsided financial support for federal referendum
    .
    This article originally appeared in the Daily Telegraph on 28/06/2013 and can be found here.
    .
    “If there is one thing Australians can bet their bottom dollar on, it’s that the September 14 referendum on local government recognition is not about the “dignity” of local councillors.
    .
    It is about megalomaniacs in Canberra, who have just rammed the bill through parliament to bypass the states and fund local government to apply federal policy.
    .
    What is particularly concerning is the blatantly biased way in which taxpayers’ money is being used to advance a particular outcome.
    .
    An unprecedented $31.6 million of public funds has been allocated to the “yes” case, including $11.6 million for the heavily skewed “national civic education campaign” which the government admitted will push the “yes” case. Yet the “no” case is to receive a measly $500,000. Surely the significant number of members and senators who stood up for our Constitution and against this referendum demonstrates there should be equal funding for the “no” case?
    .
    As if this was not bad enough, the politicians have ensured that Australians receive as little exposure to the “no” case as possible. The Referendum Bill was amended so that the crucial Yes/No booklet is no longer sent to every voter, but to every household, which will ensure that it is treated as junk mail…………….”

    Is it our ABC or the ALP’s? They have said nothing.

    Have any of you considered Rein’s company didn’t get their multi million contract renewed by the British government? They didn’t find jobs for the unemployed. No wonder he has his house in Canberra up for sale for $2.25 million. And doing the publicity tours around the world before a general election hoping to shore up some cushy job for himself if they don’t get in. I can’t understand how his party allows this to go on. The Greens have revolted, the NSW ALP and AWU well they are rather silent, gobsmacked I suspect. His dictatorial ways have not seemed to have changed and I suspect that Albanese is smiling like a Cheshire cat, because if they don’t win again, he’ll most probably take on the Opposition leadership and what a lack luster block head he is! It will be sink or swim for this party and I hope, pray, cross my legs that they’ll disappear into the quagmire of non entities for many a year to come. If Tony doesn’t start some kind of fight back now, the idiots voting for Rudd will see it as complacency and lack of confidence. Or maybe he is just allowing Ruddites to go and hang themselves leaving a general election until November!!!!! Think of the damage that can be done?
