Straight From the Horse's Mouth

It's the WA State Election this coming Saturday, and Duncan asked me yesterday if there's a website that lists what the parties stand for on certain issues.  There are plenty, but I find the most comprehensive way is to go to each party's individual website.  Websites that compare parties are usually quite biased and don't list ALL of the issues.

We visited a different church on Sunday and we were given 'how to vote' cards for the Australian Christians.  Personally, I dislike these things being handed out in churches where godly people have come to their own opinions and disagree on many issues.  There is no such thing as a 'Christian vote', but that's another story.  This is what was on the brochure - a Christian checklist of where the parties stand on issues concerning Christians:

The problem with this checklist is that it's kind of vague with lots of question marks.  Also, it doesn't list ALL of the issues that Christians care about (refugees, for example).  There is also the possibility that some parties' views on some of these issues have been misrepresented.

Please research your vote, people.  Go to each party's website and hear it straight from the horse's mouth.
