No, thank you, I am most definitely not interested in working for this mob.

This intrigued me, under the heading “personal attributes’:

‘Servant leadership qualities’

Please explain.

“Traditional leadership generally involves the accumulation and exercise of power by one at the “top of the pyramid.” By comparison, the servant-leader shares power, puts the needs of others first and helps people develop and perform as highly as possible.”

Would they be allowed to require that the candidate is Christian?

Tempted to take the job to gain access to their email address and mailing list….

But my commitment to Hey Zues and his church is probably lacking.

Oh the temptation to go in for an interview wearing one of those pen cameras, dressed as Peter Allen with a couple of maracas. Their reactions should be YouTube worthy. Something tells me the ACL isn’t an equal opportunity employer.

I’d be tempted to put my best foot forward and apply, just to see how much damage I could do before they sacked me.

I don’t wish for them to stop voicing their opinions. I need a laugh some times.
I just want them to stop thinking they speak for the majority of Australians.

Would the Greens be allowed to require that their candidates agree with their [Greens] policies, opinions and views?

Probably. Perhaps a better question is, would they be allowed to require that the candidate is not gay?

Yeah…it’d be a hoot!

Redirect incoming calls to a brothel in Fyshwick…format the hard drives of every computer you can find…run every piece of paper through a shredder…make a long distance call to the telephone time service in New York to run up the phone bill…fax a press release about perversion in the ranks of the ACL to all media outlets…

The possibilities are endless. :-)

Most Indigenous Australians are Christian. Anyone care to knock Indigenous Australians over that?

Thought not.

What? That’s the strangest conflation of unrelated concepts I’ve ever heard of.

I’ll cheerfully mock religious nutters like the ACL, regardless of the colour of their skin. If I’m bagging such a nutter, it’ll be because of their silly beliefs. They may be indigenous or they may not be, but it won’t affect the bagging in any way.

That’s fantastic! Sounds just like how the APS upper leadership run the show!! Bwahahahahah…..

Hey…I’m a three post nutbag in this thread! Woot! :-)

The majority of Christians are nice. The ACL are not, and deserve all the mockery and ridicule we can gather.

Not exactly sure what point you are trying to make there, masky baby. Are you trying to force a race card to stop anybody having a go at blatant morons?

If this is the strangest conflation of unrelated concepts you’ve heard of, I gather you’ve not heard of the good book then. I’m still puzzled by how Corinthians 11:14 works, for obvious reasons.

I’m not sure if you mean 1 Corinthians 11:14 (about haircuts) or 2 Corinthians 11:14 (about Satan turning into an angel of light). So I’m not sure if you mean that you have long hair (if you are male), or are an eager minion.

Seriously, though, I think it is a real shame that these people are pushing to position themselves as the ‘Christian’ voice. Christianity is a broad church…(-:

I highly doubt that to be the case. Maybe they are told to do it on their census form. But they are not Christians and never were. Indigenous Australians like many Pacific islanders and Africans are Christian, because that religion got their first and forced their religion onto them. So maybe now hundreds of years later they are “Christians” but not because of choice necessarily and its the part of religion that upsets me the most. Forcing or telling others who to believe as you do.

Add to that, besides practising Christians there are many, many “cultural Christians” (including lots of the Sunday Assembly folk). So anyone who knocks Christianity per se, rather than objecting to the crazy lunar fundamentalists specifically, has it all wrong.

Archbishop Tutu springs to mind in regard to your African comments. Why don’t you write him an email and tell him that he is not a Christian? Or tell the many Sudanese worshippers in Anglican churches here in Canberra that their faith is not real?

I’m also sure that Indigenous Christians would also appreciate your insights on why their beliefs are not real. They know about historic and continuing oppression much more than most.

Better called the Christian Taliban, these extremists weild far more political influence than their numbers would indicate. The reason for that is one of the Great Mysteries.

It’s be great to plant a mole with the task of finding out how they do it.

You’re saying in effect that Indigenous Australians and Pacific Islanders are not capable of deciding their spiritual beliefs in a multifaith society? Tell that to a Tongan congregation! I dare you!

It would be silly to suggest that indigenous Australian and Pacific islanders are incapable of deciding their spiritual beliefs. But the extent to which one can make a decision is limited when a particular religion is the only game in town. Some 90% of Tongans are some variety of Christian. Over 95% of Pakistanis are Muslim. If your whole family and basically every person you’ve ever met is of one religion, the extent to which you actually “choose” your religion is limited. That is to say, if George Pell was born in Pakistan to Pakistani parents, do you think he’d still be Catholic?

In oppressive societies, sure. But in Australia, how so? People are free to choose their religion and only members of, say, The Family have limited choices. The rest of us can be Satanists. Or cult followers of Sarah Hanson-Young or Brian Harradine or Doug Anthony or Barcham. Or, hopefully, atheists.
