Silence speaks volumes
October 31, 2007
So the government is under pressure?
PRIME Minister John Howard and Treasurer Peter Costello are under pressure to distance themselves from an evangelical church leader who has spoken at a meeting of the far right-wing League of Rights.
Pastor Danny Nalliah, the head of Melbourne-based Catch the Fire Ministries, has confirmed he addressed the group, despite being warned that they were “anti-Jewish”.
Right. So they should distance themselves from Nalliah for addressing an “anti-jewish” group, but Federal Liberal candidate Pastor Peter Curtis’ comments that homosexuality is a perversion and that intelligent design should be taught in school science classes, doesn’t raise so much as a whisper of response for either the Liberal or Labor parties.
Says a lot really – just nothing good.
EDITED TO ADD: Pastor Peter has made the latest Geologic Podcast’s Religious Moron of the Week. Nice.
