    Did you not use the Uniting Church's stance on the subject as 'evidence' to support your view?

    I would much rather be on an unsinkable lifeboat, rather than on a dodgy fishing vessel sinking in the middle of nowhere. You?

    And many are supportive. What is the point? One does not have the authority to determine how God views Morrison's policy. For a non-Christian to bring God into this is quite bizarre. Using religion (which they do not believe in) to back up their view does not make sense.

    Who said I don't believe in religion? I said I don't identify as christian. I was brought up as one, but came to my senses.

    So you believe in religion, but not a Christian. May I ask which religion you do believe in then?
