The Rudd team isn’t all bad apparently – along with getting on board Kyoto, religion will hopefully have a smaller role in our new government:
The Rudd team is not only younger than the Howard ministries of recent years. Despite Rudd’s acclaimed commitment to Christianity, the Godless of Labor’s front bench outweighs the God-fearing if a propensity to take an affirmation rather than an oath is a guide. Only 19 of the team, including Rudd, held the Bible, while the other 23 opted to affirm their loyalty. The Howard folk were Bible-bearers almost to a person.
Perhaps they’ll drop ludicrous ideas like School Chaplains.
