The Weekend Australianfor May18 wisely observed the profound difference between Shorten and Hawke. Hawke brought Australia together. Shortendividedit. Hawke governed by consensus; Shorten engaged in class war. However, Morrison will act by consensus.
Significantly Hawke, Howard, Costello and Morrison all shared a Christian upbringing. Hawke, as a teenager was originally a professing Christian. A visit to India, to an international Christian conference changed all that. The sight of beggars distressed him immensely. He became an agnostic and died as one. Yet Hawke’s public life reflecting his Christian origins, preferred consensus in politics
Thankfully, the Coalition’s win (as the PM said) was a miracle. But divisive influences will continue to dog the steps of Team Morrison. One huge source of division is not even acknowledged: Multiculturalism.It is a breeding ground for future trouble in Australia. Especially the influx of Muslims. May Australians be warned! Europe’s current crises warn us. Douglas Murray’s The Strange Death of Europe documents our danger. Murray begins with this chilling statement: “Europe is committing suicide. Or at least its leaders have decided to commit suicide.” The result of this death wish is seen in the social chaos, terrorism, assassinations and fear arising from irresponsible immigration levels including many from Islamic areas.
Does this not sound familiar?
The idea that multiculturalism is a plus for Australia must be rejected. Murray’s book warns us. Whether Morrison heeds the warning remains to be seen. “Pray without ceasing” must be the Christian’s mindset. Only God can save us from committing national suicide.
