    Honestly, I know bugger all Christians who are pro-SSM. They are so few & far between. I feel like you're way off the mark here.

    Absolutely agree with the last bit though.
    OK

    So you're calling Rudd, Gillard and Wong 'right wing bigots'?

    Legit question. They voted the same way as Abbott and Bernardi, but people seem reluctant to label them the same.

    I swear I've seen polling research that suggests a majority of everyday God believing peeps are cool with it.

    Rudd, Gillard, and Wong are most definitely right wing as far as economics and political ideology is concerned.

    On top of that they are each fundamentalists who's actions and beliefs are dictated by ideology rather than careful consideration of facts.

    We can throw Nick Xenophon and the Greens in with that lot as well - in fact all politicians will comfortably fit under that banner.

    They are also cool with building structures so they can talk to imaginary friends on mass every Sunday - so you could hardly take their responses to any questionnaire seriously.

    Yeah that's my point.

    The term 'right wing' (in my opinion) is fairly lazy to label the type of people who are against this.

    I mean, yeah, that's the only point anyone really needs to make isn't it.

    no.
    I used the term to demonstrate how the good member's labelling all arguments for the change as "atheist leftist propaganda" is off the mark too.

    That's like asking Boz to name his top five Gypos.

    It's a token position Dr Q. All they need to do is keep the level of spending in the economy compatible to the level required to generate full employment.

    Unfortunately, every treasurer over the past 50 years has either been clueless like Hockey and McMahon or ideologically biased like Keating, Costello, Cormann, Morrison... and everyone else.

    Gough Whitlam
    Frank Crean

    For no reason other than they were the last treasurers of the past 50 years that held the positon when full employment was still regarded as a policy objective.

    Two wrongs don't make a right Mr Fish.

    Besides, even Captain Obvious seems tired of pointing out the good Members silliness, I just assumed we were all like that now.
