Once again, Fiona Patten is attempting to remove the Lord’s Prayer from the Victorian Parliament. Despite no longer being a Member of Parliament, she’s campaigning to remove the prayer.
Make no mistake, this isn’t about religious freedom and inclusivity. It’s the removal of God from one of the most important institutions in our society.
The Lord’s Prayer has a legitimate place in Parliament and has been part of parliamentary process since 1918. It is symbolic of the Christian ethos underpinning Western civilisation that has fostered free and prosperous societies, including our liberal democracy.
