A young lady (let’s call her Julie) related the story of a conversation she had with her mother, a strong Catholic lady who had always voted for the Australian Labor party. Julie, also a strong pro-life Christian asked her mum how she could continue to vote for a party that supported abortion and whose leader was a declared atheist with a live in boyfriend; a party that the anti-Christian Greens have such a strong influence over whose main aim is to re-engineer the social and moral fabric of Australia. It seemed so much at odds with Julie’s mother’s faith and personal convictions!
In her defense, Julies mum said that the deputy leader of the Liberal party also had a live in boyfriend and that somehow justified her continued support of the ALP!? When Julie suggested her mum could vote for a Christian party, she wouldn’t consider it, placing her long time loyalty to the ALP above her faith and personal convictions.
