How disturbing, Stuart? Very! See press release at http://atheistfoundation.org.au/forums/showthread.php?t=15177.

Quoted here:
Media Release - Pandering to Stupidity
Prime Minister Julia Gillard is to be the keynote speaker at the National Conference of the Australian Christian Lobby (ACL), representing all Australians, including the Australian Labor Party.

The ACL is an organisation consisting of ultra-conservative Christians, whose views are unlikely to be accepted by a majority of the population, whether religious or non-religious. Mainstream Christian Faiths have distanced themselves from this organisation, claiming they are not representative of their churches.

The Atheist Foundation of Australia has previously asked the Labor Party under Kevin Rudd, as well as Julia Gillard, to open the Global Atheist Conventions in Melbourne in 2010 and 2012. But the offers were declined in both instances. This was despite the fact that Atheists represent between 30% and 50% of the population.

It is deplorable that the Labor Party should be pandering to any religion at all, especially to such an anachronistic and fundamentalist branch of Christianity, one that has no relevance in a modern and enlightened society.

Julia Gillard has failed as a politician and an atheist, and her kowtowing to a religious minority whose aim it is to create a Christian theocracy, is a downright disgrace.

The Atheist Foundation of Australia condemns this short-sightedness and hypocrisy.

How disturbing is it to have an atheist Prime Minister giving the opening address to an Australian Christian convention but ignoring the Global Atheist Convention held in her own country?
