Empowering young Australians to be a clear Christian voice
Sydney’s recent aggressive outbreak should prompt serious questions about Australian citizenship and its availability to people whose religious beliefs contradict mainstream values.
But if that annual occasion comes and goes without widespread awareness, the problem is not just with new arrivals.
Thankfully the various civic anniversaries and symbols may persist, despite a woeful ignorance of their meaning – and this may facilitate cultural restoration:
On this day one hundred years ago, Australia took to itself the current version of our Coat of Arms, including the six State Badges with their five Christian crosses: the red Cross of St George (NSW), the white Southern Cross (Vic), the blue Maltese Cross (Qld), and two crowns on which is the cross of Christ.
Although new Australians are not required to profess faith in Christ as saviour, his claims and their social implications are commended by citizenship certificates which proudly feature the Commonwealth Coat of Arms – not to mention its use on the fifty cent coin.
