Study: Americans Christians Are Abandoning Their Mission To Welcome Asylum-Seekers

Australia lead the world in abandoning the Christian mission Howard and Abbott were to blame. They lead us to war and didn’t welcome peace. (ODT)

Above is Andrew Bolt’s approach multiculturalism is ruining his elitist landscape (ODT)

Yes, both the power generation wars and the drawn-out war on refugees are fear-based campaigns. Hopefully the Victorian State election plus recent by-elections in Wentworth, Braddon, Longman and so on will give the conservative parties in Australia the final realisation that fear and scare campaigns that have stood them well since Menzies was warning about ‘reds under the bed’ are now useless. People clearly aren’t ‘buying’ the ‘Whyalla wipe-out’ or refugees are all ‘gang members in the making’, preferring to support plans and visions for the future. Unfortunately (for the Liberal Party), sections of their ‘broad church’ are too involved in their own cultural wars to see the wood for the trees.
