Well, it's a good question, but Australians didn't exactly vote for a religious leader; they voted for a dimwit nothing burger Liberal wanker PM, who just happens to be a religious fool. I truly believe that Australia is a largely secular country. Yes, there are churches and believers, and yes, people put down their religion when completing a census, but Australians are mostly notionally religious rather than functionally religious. So, technically we are not a non-religious nation, and we didn't vote for a religious leader.
You'll get no argument from me.
But we all should try to remember that, in particular so it seems, the LNP consists mainly of a membership of Catholics, Anglicans and a smattering of other Christian based religions, as does the ALP also but theirs is not so strong and potent.
Before we got stuck with " Happy Clappy Jesus Chappy" ScumMo we had Abbott, the Rabbit, the failed Seminarian of the Catholic 'Faith,' before him we had Malevolent Malcolm Turdball, yet another Catholic and so the list goes on and on way back to the very 'birth' of the Liberal Party and its later unification with the National Party, once called the Country Party.
So, unfortunately and extremely sadly, EVERY time a Voter opts for the LNP at an election We, the very Secular Australians, get saddled with the religious detritus, etc, of having a full-on Non-Secular Federal Government.
As a side note, I do like the the photo showing ScumMo at a Hillsong Meeting giving what I see as being little more than a version of the Nazi salute.
To me, that salute should be banned world-wide and anyone using it should be vilified given it shameful, brutal, horrific history.
