In the Media

Well, I’ve made it into a local paper again. But this time, rather than being on the front page, I’m on page 22 (of 24) which I feel is more my level.

Article in the Gisborne Gazette

Did anyone sign up for the Australian Christian Lobby’s evening with the Prime Minister and the Opposition Leader? I’m hoping that the media is misrepresenting what was said, because from the snippets I’ve heard and read “Christian values” seem to have been completely confused with “conservative family values,” even by Rudd the self-confessed admirer of Bonhoeffer. How anyone could sit through the lectionary readings from Luke and the prophets that we’ve been having over the past few weeks and even imagine that wealth (as opposed to sufficiency) is a good thing is beyond me. And yet Howard seems again to have droned on about the need for a strong economy as a Christian value!
