The reason I’m bringing this to the Party’s attention is that I believe it would be in our interests (and also the country’s) to write a letter to Mr Shorten requesting that he cancel his appearance at the Christian Lobby’s National Conference.
Sounds good to me. Not the first time the Labor party has done stupid shit like this unfortunately.
Gillard was to be a keynote speaker in 2012 but cancelled after the managing director opened his mouth and - surprise! - something offensive fell out.
How much influence do these people actually have anyway, vote wise? Whatever it is, perceived or real, it’s too bloody much.
I have no objections to the proposed letter to Mr Shorten.
I only just found out about the ACL. These are my first reactions:
As a Christian, I find them embarrassing. As a queer, I find them insulting.
O.K. I’ll confess my eyesight is not what it once was; however I initially read the above as “satanised Ku Klux Klan.” Perhaps not quite a Freudian slip?
Haha I did the same thing!
The ALP has always had a weird discordant crush on those people. The internet filter and the refusal to ditch the chaplaincy program both grew from it. A letter or possibly a cold shower would be useful.
