Australia’s new Prime Minister has revealed she does not believe in God, and will not try to court the Christian vote by pretending to have faith.

“I am not going to pretend a faith I don’t feel,” Julia Gillard confirmed in media interviews this morning, reports ABC News.

“For people of faith, I think the greatest compliment I could pay to them is to respect their genuinely held beliefs and not to engage in some pretence about mine,” she added, noting that she grew up in a Christian family, but “I’ve made decisions in my adult life about my own views.”

Gillard did not place her hand on the Bible as she was sworn in as Prime Minister last week. Instead, she chose to take an affirmation.

A Nielsen Poll last year found three-quarters of Australians do not care whether political leaders believe in God or not.

Rejoice!


Okay so there isn't much point to this thread other than spreading news but I needed to make a thread involving Australian politicians saying something that I actually approved of.

She's still a woman.

Edit: Please note I am obviously trolling. I state this because I am about to start playing SimCity 4 and thus will not be able to rebut any insults. Thank you for your time.

Now that's how you make up for all the hypocrites who feel obliged to fake a religious faith in order to please the masses.

I applaud you, Australians.

Congratulations to Australia for having an honest prime minister. It's about time atheists got the respect they (we) deserve.
The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done.

Kill all the atheist scum! They will be the downfall of the righteous! Repent ye sinners! Devil worshipping scum! Heathens, the lot of you! Satan shall rape you all for eternity in hell!

I wish we had an atheist prime minister

To be honest, I've really gotten tired of Gillard's voice over the past week. She just won't shut up

Big who cares? What does it matter whether someones religious or not? They're there to run the country and make decisions for the best interests of the people, not to be involved with religion.
#15
Too bad every political story I've read about from australia has made me want to self harm, I suppose.
If music was the food of love I'd be a fat romantic slob.
#16
yeah seriously it doesnt matter. anyways a politician is a politician. many of you are speaking like because shes an atheist, shes better suited to lead. its just like in america where many people voted for obama because he was black.

I like to think noone in this part of the world really cares about religion anymore, atleast in politics.

Though, she has the worst Australian accent I've ever heard, so well, you may have an atheist prime minister, but that doesn't matter when she has the voice of satan

She's a woman and a ranger

and her voice is even more annoying then kerry underwood, the FEMALE AFL commentator, who ruins every game that she commentates.

Who to pick, i prefer labours policies but then we'll be led by the most annoying person ever.
#24
I couldn't care less. She won't last. Not that I really care about who the PM is, to be honest.

Eh. I listened to Steve Price talk about how this was going to hurt her, then claim that she didn't believe in family.

Fuck I hate Steve Price.

Oh I can't stand that guy. I don't think i've heard him say a single thing I agree with. He's a smug, self satisfied moron. I saw him on the 7PM project saying that Gillard shouldn't have answered the question.

Really? He hasn't done anything so dramatically bad, like attempt to impose (and reaffirm his commitment to doing so this week) mandatory internet censorship! And, while I'm at it, he has rejected a proposal for the system to be opt-in or opt-out. He responded by saying, “I’m not into opting in to child porn.” What a fcuking retard.

Yesterday I didn't like Julia Gillard. Now I freaking love her.

I know I shouldn't vote just based on religion, but she definitely thinks like me more than Tony Robbott.
