Allegedly this applies to Australia's federal government, but...

Our parliament is dominated by Christian adherents, proudly and publicly stated.  Our prime minister
is a card-carrying Pentecostal.  Our first and only female prime minister was continually hounded by her
fellow parliamentarians for being openly atheist.  Before our parliamentary sessions open, the Lord's
Prayer is recited.  (Atheist can now choose to wait outside the chamber.)

Quote:As long as religion is allowed a voice in politics the separation of church and state is not even going to add up to so much as a pipe dream.

Agreed.  In Australia, we have priests and ministers and rabbis commenting daily on affairs of state, from
abortion laws to stem-cell research, from same-sex marriage to LGBTQ rights, and from alcohol laws to shop
trading hours etc etc.  Whatever the issue is, these religionists always  have an opinion on what they
think everybody else should be believing in, or doing, or respecting.

A couple of months ago, one of our former prime ministers, the zealous Roman Catholic Tony Abbott, was seen
visiting convicted paedophile and former archbishop George Pell in jail, whom he totally supports as being innocent,
and who he claims should be released immediately.  It's more than obvious the RCs have a soft spot for pedos.

It's probably not a popular opinion, but every president since Reagan has bowed to this group, including Clinton and Obama. Perhaps to a slightly lesser extent, but they're all going to the national prayer breakfast and they all spout the same pro Isreal, pro Christian talking points.
They were using these powerful Christan contacts and infrustructures, too.

But yeah, it's pretty damned scary how much power they wield

That's when a square root or a cube root simply becomes an old-fashioned in-and-out root.     Tongue
