In the past eighteen months I’ve travelled to every state and territory, and have spent considerable time both in the cities and in rural Oz. Simply put tonight’s result doesn’t surprise me in the slightest. Let me share a few observations. (1/8)

Many of my friends and colleagues in the city do not travel or work across Australia. There is a predominate (and deafening) narrative driven from Sydney and Melbourne that does not reflect the conversations and perspectives I have encountered. (2/8)
Likewise, the ALP and the LNP continue along their mediocre paths. There is no political party setting out to unite the nation. There is no political party setting out to redefine the political conversation in Australia. (3/8)

Dear politicians,

Jesus talks about hell more than anyone in the Bible *but* says nothing about sexual orientation. Yet Jesus says to hell with those religious types who ignore:

⚠️The poor
⚠️The refugee
⚠️The destitute
⚠️The sick
⚠️The prisoner

(Yep, Matthew 25)
In the lead up to the #AUSVote19 election when people are half quoting Bible verses, here’s a handy little guide when you hear Christians say, “Yeah, but who are the poor and the rich really?”

I like to defer to Jesus’ half brother James who says explicitly who the poor are.
According to the book of James the poor are:
⭕️ workers defrauded of wages (5:4)
⭕️ the suffering who cry out (5:4)
⭕️ those in humble circumstances (1:9)
⭕️ those without a welfare safety net (1:27)
⭕️ the destitute (2:2,15)
⭕️ discriminated against (2:3-4,6,9)
