Rudd is an arch Conservative! We had Howard and now we have Rudd! Both tarred with the same brush. Yet all the Labor sheep will trot off to the polling stations next year to vote for Rudd, a man who despises gay people! It is an irony that we could have a Green Prime Minister who IS gay!!!!!
The problem is that most Australians (60 percent) SUPPORT same sex marriage and that Kevin Rudd and his Labor mates are out-of-touch with what most Aussies want and that Labor is heavily controlled by the ultra-right-wing Australian Christian Lobby and Hillsong.
I don’t understand why Rudd’s party doesn’t force him to accept the wishes of the majority of Australians (and therefore a big majority of Labor supporters). He’s a catholic by birth, though now an Anglican as I understand. Maybe those of us who only visit Sydney and Melbourne and can see no difference in attitudes to London are missing something? Is Oz more homophobic than the UK? I’d be reluctant to think so..
