ALP & The Greens, Final forum & Emily’s List

Interesting to see a number of newspaper reports today sounding the same alarm as we have, concerned about the impact of a Green/Labor marriage of convenience. Wayne Swan speaks out here.

And also Janet Albrechsten here.

Last night saw the largest forum we have been involved in in this election, almost 250 people gathered from across the Church came to Bairnsdale to hear four candidates ask for their vote, explain their values and respond to a great range of questions from the audience.  What was clear was that the issue of abortion law is high on the radar for Christians with fully one third of the questions on this issue alone.

Finally for today, can I encourage you to take a good look at the “conscience votes” tab at the top of this page? Here you will find out not just how your MP voted on key issues but also very importantly discover who is a part of Emily’s list. This is the ALP group that seems to have worked hardest to push through the abortion law changes. 

Please continue to pray for God’s will to be done in this election outcome.
