A non-pandering pollie: hallelujah!

  (09 November 09)
  by Greg Spearritt

If his proposed speech to the Sydney Institute is anything to go by, Shadow Treasurer Joe Hockey’s take on religion – and perhaps even his political integrity – is quite an improvement on that of a prominent former Liberal Treasurer (and not a few other pollies and former pollies of both persuasions).

 

A politician publicly having no truck with biblical literalism is a brave move, even in secular old Oz.

 

One suspects Hockey won’t come to be known anytime soon as one who “soaked up a rapturous welcome from 20,000 followers of the Hillsong Church”.

 

Update: Joe Hockey’s opinion piece.
