I have had some people ask me the question as to why I did not include the word â€˜Christianâ€™ in the official name for Rise Up Australia Party?
Let me share a few reasons as to why I did not do so. Please take some time to read this email with an open mind before forming an opinion. Also would you please take a few minutes to send us a response. Which would really be appreciated.
For example, if you want to buy a box of tea, you go to Coles and look through all the packs of tea. Â Then you want to buy a particular brand as it is good quality, but as you read the label you find out that the proceeds go to promote communist ideologies. Would you buy that pack of tea?? Even though you wanted that brand of tea, you would not buy that particular pack as the label put you off.
Likewise there are many Aussies out there who have very good values, are passionately in love with Australia and want to keep Australia Australian. Unfortunately if I use the word â€˜Christianâ€™, I will quite possibly ostracize the rest of the community.
When we had to fight our defence in the court case when the Muslims took us to court in 2002, many good thinking and good hearted Christians contacted me and said that I must fight my defence based on the fact that Australia is a Christian nation. However, when I prayerfully sought the Lord, I strongly felt that we should fight our defence on freedom of speech.
This was a winner of Godâ€™s heavenly wisdom and counsel as most of the nation got behind us in support of protecting freedom of speech. In fact, Atheists, Buddhists, Hindus and many others who did not go to church regularly, but believed in Jesus, came to my office to make donations towards the court case fund. Â Definitely, many Christians too contributed to the court fund and I am so very grateful to everyone who helped us through the 5 year court battle which we won in 2007 and became a great victory for freedom of speech in Australia.
Before I started off as a Pastor I used to work as a Sales/Marketing Manager for many years. I always knew that we had to have a good product that was well packed, with a very good brand name which will attract the consumer. I believe God has given us a very good product with a great brand name in Rise Up Australia Party â€“ Keep Australia Australian.
Another example to consider is, if there are one hundred thousand voters in an electorate, and ten thousand of them are Christians. If I have the word â€˜Christianâ€™ in the party name, I could receive ten thousand votes at most. This might help get one person into parliament, but the fact remains that you will only get the same proportion of the vote every election, thus only making it possible to re-elect the same candidate.
However, with the slogan Rise Up Australia Party â€“ Keep Australia Australian, I am not ostracizing any one. Therefore, I have the potential of a greatly increased harvest of Christians and non-Christian voters in every election, which enhances Rise Up Australia Party becoming a major player in the Australian political scene.
The end result would be to see our Judeo-Christian foundations protected so that we can continue to enjoy the fruits of our great democratic nation Australia.
For your best alternative in Australian politics, â€˜Vote Rise Up Australia Party and Keep Australia Australianâ€™ for today and the next generation!
