New contender - the Secular Party of Australia

Share |
This is a new party I have not seen before. It's name is the Secular Party of Australia, and of course their agenda is the separation of church from state, and presumably church pastors from young boys. The problem with this agenda is their lack of a comprehensive intellectual framework of ideas, and most particularly there focus upon religion. For the life of me, I don't see the attraction for people in defining a value system based on a negative - the non existence of a God. I thus disparage this party because they ought to have a positive value system. Their failure to offer one means they have a lot of growing up to do, and are thus not real candidates for this election...but that never stopped the main parties.
Sorry Australians...as you already knew....you have another dismal choice this year. But didn't you always know...democracy was always about the pretense of choice...without actually giving you one. That is why we have compulsory voting...so they have the pretense of legitimacy, even if you were forced to sanction it. Good luck with that!
