Who Speaks for Christians?

  (31 October 09)

Lyle Shelton of the Australian Christian Lobby (ACL) has complained about a group calling itself Christians Supporting Choice for Voluntary Euthanasia. It seems the CSCVE group had the temerity to campaign about VE legislation before Parliament last week in Adelaide.


How dare these people purport to be Christians? According to the ABC, Lyle is certain that Christians don’t support VE.


Two-thirds (67%) of those attending the recent SoFiA Conference in Toowoomba described themselves as Christian. And two-thirds (66%) of those attending were in favour of voluntary euthanasia. Sounds rather like there was at least some overlap…


Could it be that Lyle and the ACL, despite the hubris underlying the name they chose for their organisation, do not in fact represent the thinking of each and every Christian in Australia?
