The practice and the preacher

In this Fiona Katauskas cartoon, Scott Morrison stands at a Hillsong pulpit and declares our country needs more love and less judgement. Behind him, an assortment of ATSI, LGBTIQ, Muslim and homeless Australians say that's just what they've been saying.

The more love and less judgement that Hillsong offers does come at a price - 10 percent of an adherent's gross income as demanded by the biblical tithe! Hope Scomo can be trusted not to be so fundamental when it comes down to the taxpayer!

Thank you Fiona for another very pertinent cartoon. When will this love that the PM is praying for be translated into compassion for those most in need and strategies for the effective care of our planet? Some examples that immediately come to mind are adequate health and education services, social services for ordinary Australian battlers (those on Newstart, those living in poverty}, asylum seekers who have been imprisoned without trial, paying back Timor-Leste - the poorest nation in the region - the billions raised from its oil and gas that Australia has taken, increasing overseas aid, restoring a national Aboriginal consultative body, doing more to work for peace instead of supporting US wars and programs to ensure more recycling of wastes, preventing pollution, protecting the natural environment and the species in it, making the wealthy pay their fair share of tax etc. There is so much that needs to be done, but all we hear is talk and very little action.
