I’ve sent a couple of letters to the SMH, but they probably won’t get published in the flood of correspondence they’re getting on the topic, so it’s good I have a blog to toot my own horn 🙂
If the Catholic Church is not behind the legislation, and is not concerned with “annoying behaviour”, perhaps it can do the Christian thing and publically pledge to pay all fines levied by the State Government under this stupid law.
John Howard only wanted to take us back to the ’50s; Morris wants to get all medieval on our asses. Perhaps we can now say that no-one expects the Iemma’ish Inquisition.
SomethingÂ I haven’t sent in, is along the lines that the conversion rate on payment for behaviour that is arguable annoying to Catholics is that 30 pieces of silver equals $5,500 AUD. However, I just couldn’t get something that felt right, so feel free to rework it and use it yourselves.
