Five reasons why Australians should not vote for Ms Gillard as PM â€“ vote for Labor is a vote for the Greens
A vote for Labor means a vote for the Greens, according to Dr Daniel Nalliah, President of Catch the Fire Ministries (CTFM) – an inter-denominational Para-church Ministry with more than 60 bases across Australia and reaching tens of thousands of voters across the nation.
Dr Nalliah has given five reasons why Australians should not vote for Ms Gillard as Prime Minister at the upcoming federal election on August 21.
Central to the objection is the realization that a vote for Labor will essentially be a vote for the Greens. â€œDo you really want Bob Brown and the Greens to run our country?â€ Dr Nalliah said.Â
â€œMs Gillardâ€™s close alliance with the Greens means if Australians vote for Labor they will actually be voting for the Greens,â€ he said.
1. A vote for Labor will be a vote for Greens. â€œThe current alliance that Labor has forged with the Greens is a real disaster for Australia and Australians. We are sure that this election will be a very close one in which Labor will have to go to bed with the Greens to get into power.Â This will result in Greens policy constantly reflected in every decision Labor makes. 2. Ms Gillard is living in a de-facto relationship. â€œSeven out of 10 couples living in de-facto relationships claim that the men are scared to get married because they fear losing half of their belongings through divorce. By living as a de-facto Ms Gillard is setting a very bad example and is a poor role model, especially for women. Most women I have personally spoken to around the country would like to get married, have children and settle down with a husband and family.
3. Ms Gillardâ€™s public declaration that she is an Atheist and does not believe in God goes directly against 80% of Australians who believe in God or a god, according to the last Census, of which 64% claimed to be Christians. Her atheism will reflect in certain policy decisions which will be against the majority of Australians. Are we going to let the minority rule in this free and democratic nation?
4. Ms Gillard does not have children. â€œThough some may think this isnâ€™t important, itâ€™s a huge problem when one is the Prime Minister because that title means making a raft of decisions on everything from childcare policies to Centrelink benefits taking in Education, Marriage and Family. A person must have a child to understand how to properly raise a child and as PM,Â Ms Gillard will be severely lacking in personal parental knowledge. I am sure parents in Australia will agree with me on this. I believe the next generation will be at a great disadvantage with a Prime Minister who does not know what their real needs are.
5. Ms Gillardâ€™s refusing to take the Oath on the Bible. â€œThis is a gross mockery of the Judiciary system and what our forefathers established our nation on – the Judeo-Christian foundation.Â Every court room has a Bible because it is considered the true word of God. At every court hearing, you are asked to hold the Bible in your right hand and take the oath by saying, â€˜I will speak the truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God.â€™ I know all about this from personal experience when the Islamic Council of Victoria sued me under the Racial and Religious Vilification Laws. I spent five years fighting for Freedom of Speech and Religion in Australia, which we won in the Supreme Court. Does this mean that the Bible will be removed from court rooms if she becomes the elected Prime Minister?â€
