PM Gillard’s video address to Christians to be uploaded tomorrow

The Australian Christian Lobby will upload footage of its interview with Prime Minister Julia Gillard to its Australiavotes.org.au website tomorrow evening.

ACL Managing Director Jim Wallace today asked Ms Gillard the same questions asked of the then Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott at ACL’s June 21 Make it Count event.

Ms Gillard reaffirmed her and Labor’s commitment to marriage and support for school chaplaincy.

More detail of her comments on these and other issues will be available when the footage is uploaded to australiavotes.org.au alongside Mr Abbott’s June 21 address.

ACL has distributed one million pieces of literature to more than 5000 churches around Australia this week to publicise the australiavotes.org.au website and Party responses to 24 questions of Christian concern put by ACL.
