The difference is that Abbott's religious views influence his policies. As Health Minister he was renowned for it. RU486 was off the table because his religion disagreed with its purpose.I want to know why Tony Abbott is seen as a religious crackpt when there is so many news reports, videos, etc of Kevin Rudd doing interviews outside his church. Don't really recall seeing Tony Abbott outside his church - perhaps he doesn't go to church. Yet Kevin Rudd isn't called a religious crackpot.
Or is it left over from the convict days with the Irish Catholic convicts and their Protestant Church of England masters/overseers/jailers. Sort of a don't trust the catholics as they are all crims and a bit mad.
Consider the two statements:
evin Rudd, was a catholic, now Church of England and goes to church is not a religious crackpot.
Tony Abbott, is a catholic, may or may not go to church and is a religious crackpot.
A good friend of mine who was starting up a business in the medical area had a couple of sit downs with him. Abbott's advice to him was that in deciding how to move forward with his business concepts, that first and foremost he should ensure that it complied with good Christian values. That is quoted pretty much word for word.
Sorry, believe anything you want, but religious bias has no place when it comes to my health or the health of my family.
