The Ethical Responsibilities of a Christian Politician

James at Knowtown pointed me in the direction of this speech by Australia’s Federal Minister for Health and Ageing and the Leader of the House of Representatives, Tony Abbott.

While I can’t stand the plethora of blogs filled with political comments, I found the speech very interesting.

In it, Abbott talks about the ethical responsibilities of a Christian politician. He highlights some of the struggles of trying to live up to a range of expectations.

He talks about the abortion debate and the tradgedy of 100 000 unborn babies being destroyed in Australia every year.

Why not take five or so minutes and read through what he has to say?
