God, politicians and our anthem
Hat Tip to Pacific Highlander for drawing attention to the move to put God into Advance Australia Fair and the false claims that Peter Dodds McCormack wrote a God-inclusive verse which has been missing and is now rediscovered. I would remind Christians who have enthusiasm for including a 'God' verse that our politicians are about as good at being theologians as theologians are at being politicians. I come from Queensland where there have been a few politicians (and on all sides of politics) who have claimed to be Christian. Trouble was, with some of their actions, it might have been a bit difficult to convict them of following Christ.
