Today's Herald's letters page is leading with the reaction to an article (which I seem to have missed) by a well-known relationships counsellor who apparently suggested that living in sin is inferior to being married. Eight letters, to which two sections, and the first two, of the letters page have been devoted, were published on the matter, all of them from women, none of them supporting the counsellor's views, and some of them objecting to them quite vehemently. I wonder whether the coming days will see any supporters of the natural law's commands and prohibitions in domestic matters sending in their letters? Presumably they haven't already, or the Herald would have published them, if only for balance.

Mr. Michael Webb has posted at Cath Pews a link to an interesting Australian Catholic Truth Society pamphlet on censorship. The pamphlet is quite long but might be worth reading if you have the time.
Confirmed: Ms Gillard is an atheist
Until this disclosure The Hon. Julia Gillard M.P. apparently identified as a "non-practising Baptist", but clearly not any more:
Julia Gillard on Jon Faine ABC 774 yesterday:
Faine: Do you believe in God?
Gillard: No, I don't, Jon, I'm not a religious person. I'm of course a great respecter of religious beliefs but they're not my beliefs, Jon.

"And all because "Jesus sat with the sinners and the saints"."
I'm having trouble working out the missing step/s in Ms Keneally's logical sequence:
Jesus sat with sinners and saints.
Therefore we should legislate for adoption by same-sex couples.
"Is this an issue to remind Catholic politicians of the consequences in the life of the church?"
A very good question.
