9. H.M.A. Government's latest Multicultural Statement is available here:

or go straight hither:

The Statement was released on March 20, 2017, judging by the Media Release "Multicultural Australia: United, Strong, Successful", issued jointly by the Prime Minister (The Hon. Malcolm Turnbull M.P.) and the Federal Assistant Minister for Social Services and Multicultural Affairs (The Hon. Sen. Zed Seselja), dated March 20, 2017, available at the Prime Ministerial website:

10. That Atheist straw-man again, this time from Mr. FitzSimons: "I place no credibility in "faith" – belief without evidence to support it – as a reason to guide actions"

The quotation in that headline comes from the article "Congratulations to golf, a shining example of everything that is right with sport", under the sub-heading "Please explain, Sonny", by Mr. Peter FitzSimons A.M., dated April 14, 2017, downloaded from The Sydney Morning Herald's website:

(That quotation came to my attention via the version of the article in question printed as last Saturday's installment of the same writer's "The Fitz Files" column, headlined "Garcia and Rose set par for fair play", under the same sub-heading, on p. 51 in the "WeekendSport" section of The Sydney Morning Herald, weekend issue, April 15-16, 2017, Issue No. 56008, published by Fairfax Media Publications, Pyrmont, N.S.W.)
