I thought I’d pre-empt Troppo superposters Ken and Nick – not to mention Monday’s Missing Link – by remarking on this story, which has done the rounds of the leading Australian blogs already. Judaeo-Christian heritage? Perhaps Judaeo-Christian-Greco-Roman-Euro-Anglo heritage might be more accurate. Not to mention a rich Sino-Indo heritage in places like Darwin. Not to mention dozens of culture groups predating the arrival – indeed the formation – of the Judaeo-Christian-Greco-Roman-Euro-Anglo heritage.
What a stupid question. What a bloody obvious dog-whistle for happy clappies and old farts hoping to skip over purgatorial detainment.
Will Rudd give it what for? Or will “Christian Socialism” prevail?
Correction: Geoff Honnor points out that the “questions” are in fact a bit of trolling on the part of my sometime employer News Ltd. If like me you fell for it, well … YHBT. YHL. HAND.
Update: Gummo from LP keeps following the trail.
