Lose the faith – lose the culture
· March 27, 2011 11:00 AM
Former Deputy Prime Minister and Leader of the National Party John Anderson recently spoke at the Brisbane Lord Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast on Thursday 10 March, with roughly 350 people in attendance. His speech, entitled ‘Lose the faith – lose the culture', contained this apt analogy:
“As a farmer, if you want to grow a good crop, you have to first till the soil in which a crop is grown. The crop of freedom, of democracy, of all of the good things that we take for granted in our lives, is in fact Christianity, and yet our society has moved away from it and so little understands now the soil in which the crops of freedom are grown, that I do not believe we can expect to continue to grow those crops.”

Columnist criticises attack on Christianity
· October 13, 2010 11:00 AM
foreign editor, Greg Sheridan, in an article today about the impending canonisation of Australia's first Catholic saint Mary MacKillop, has argued that the mission of secular activists to attack Christianity will undermine society. He writes:
“All of the good things in our civilisation, from its greatest institutions to the unconscious grammar of its ethics, flow ultimately from the Judeo-Christian inheritance on which it is based, and which is welcome to and enriched by the inflow of people from sympathetic religious traditions.
“The professional denouncers of Christian orthodoxy are trying a new experiment in their desperate search for a universal secularism, to create a society that lives permanently off the moral capital of its founding institutions, which it hopes finally to destroy. I'm not sure it can be done.”
