Why we should not have an ambassador to the Holy See. : Comments

By Meg Wallace, published 12/6/2019

Since when did the Australian people vote to share government with the Holy See? This undermines the separation of church and state.

It is sometimes said that there is "nothing new under the sun".

Such is indeed the case with the papacy, both in the 20/21 centuries, and throughout its benighted his-story.

Do a search on the truth-telling essay The Criminal History of the papacy.

On a more colorful and theatrical theme do a search on the vatican boys-own-club via the topic "images of cardinals in the vatican".

Why shouldn't there be ambassadors in the Vatican? Since there are Catholics around the world, shouldn't there be a voice and an open dialogue between the pope and the countries that have a large enough demographic that are Catholic? I would hope a 2 way dialogue would be of value where the pope and those in the Vatican heard the concerns of the people in the countries that Catholics live in.

The second reason to consider an ambassador there is because it's safe to be there. No beheadings, or other issues that come from sending an ambassador to a dangerous location with the intent of peace and international dialogue.

So what better place to consign Credlin's Catholic [1] Abbott than the hypocritical Vatican/Holy See.

Abbott would do less damage than if sent to the other mooted destination, High Commissioner to the UK (London/Court of St James)!

[1] See "From family to foreign policy, depth of Peta Credlin's hold over Abbott emerges" 7 March 2016 http://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2016/mar/07/from-family-to-foreign-policy-depth-of-peta-credlins-hold-over-abbott-emerges

"But in The Road to Ruin: How Tony Abbott and Peta Credlin Destroyed Their Own Government, Savva a former adviser to both John Howard and Peter Costello adds depth and details to the picture of a prime minister who had ceded much of his power to his chief of staff, who was told by her he could not do his job without her, and who appeared to believe that was true."

David,

Seems as though you just make 'smart' remarks you can't back up. Like the one about the ABC saving us from being a police state. You are not a person to be taken seriously.

If you want to talk about nature, there's nothing natural about gender bending.
