Comments on: Gillard Condemned for Doing it Her Way http://gregory.storer.com.au/2010/08/gillard-stands-condemned/ Working for a secular Australia Mon, 31 Oct 2011 02:57:47 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7 By: nick http://gregory.storer.com.au/2010/08/gillard-stands-condemned/#comment-35 Sat, 21 Aug 2010 08:48:31 +0000 http://gregory.storer.com.au/?p=238#comment-35 if religious people were truly firm in their beliefs and convictions, then they wouldn’t feel the need to constantly foist their unwanted opinions and laws and regulations upon the rest of us.
i find it hard to believe that julia is also like this. at least superficially i thought she may be different. she lives with a man she hasn’t married, she has no kids, and professes to be an atheist. i expected better than this.

At a risk of sounding like a pedant: non-Christians arrived with European settlement as there were 13 Jews on the First Fleet. Even among non-Indigenous people, Australia has never been a purely Christian country.

In addition there is strong evidence that Muslim fisherfolk from what is now Indonesia were trading with the Indigenous people of Western Australia well before James Cook set his eyes on this continent.

So Julia Gillard’s appreciation of history leaves something to be desired.

Many will see that not only did she dismiss Rudd’s Prime Minister ship but has also in one fell swoop undone much of what many appreciated as soime of the best aspects of it in his apologies to Australian’s indigenous for the stolen generation and recognition of their millenia culture in Oz as well as the apology Kevin made to the thousands of forced child orphanned immigrants from GB many too of which likewise had suffered at the hands often of Christian based institutions. Bloody shameful!
