A comment I left on the Wee Flea blog in reply to comments between John Z and Robertson will most likely not see the light of day.
But it is worth a post.
Now here’s a surprise.
The bulk of John Z’s comments concern the general Australian view regarding religion which is … in his words … In Australia, in case you haven’t already realised, religion is a private affair.
He also asked ….
What makes you think they want to learn about your church?
To which you replied …
The intelligent ones do.
You have been at pains to dismiss John’s view in one form or another on practically every reply,
And yet, on the very site you linked – 3rd Space – we find this comment on a post by one of the other main contributors , Stephen Mcalpine ;-
Annabel Crabb’s article points out that while most Australians, 71 per cent, think that “occasionally” or “most often” religious discrimination occurs in their country, a majority also believe that religious people should keep their religion views to themselves.
Crabb also points out that religious leaders are held in low esteem by the vast majority of Australians.
So, this would appear to support John’s initial assertion.
What is of concern, of course, is there you are in Australia, enjoying the hospitality of the locals when meanwhile you have the gall to state in a open forum that you consider the vast majority of Australians are not intelligent enough to ask you about your church.
Well, isn’t that just bonzer!
I haven’t taken a screen shot, so in case he takes the post down, be my guest and go read. HERE
Oh, and HERE’S the 3rd Space Article that, contrary to what Robertson believes, does appear to support John’s assertion about Aussies and religion.
Ah! Gotta love them Christians, right?
