Commenting on the story: The Conservative Correction: ‘Egregious’ social policy blamed for Libs’ Pentecostal insurgence:

Robert Menzies was Prime Minister more than 55 years ago. Society and Liberal Party policy has moved on since then. – Paul Oppermann

Ironic that the Menzies quote given in the article also directly refers to the male of the species in its “progressive” statement. Something to be proud of, Libs. – Chrisopher Saint

The census of 2016 found 48% of Australians do not consider themselves Christian. The percentage of non-Christians has been growing steadily since the 1966 census, where the percentage was 22%.

The most recent National Church Life survey found four out of five religious believers had not attended church in the previous 12 months. Australia is not a Christian democracy. Political leaders are misguided to believe otherwise. – Kev Carr

Religion has no place in politics. The Australian Constitution embodies that Government is to be secular.

I’m a longstanding swinging voter, and I can clearly state now that ScoMo’s Liberals will not get my vote whilst they infuse government with religious bunkum. – Ray Goulter

Commenting on the story: Interstate buyers snapping up SA houses

First time home buyers are being frozen out of the market by interstate buyers.

I have been to auctions and seen young couples hopefully bidding to their limit, only for the price to go $100k higher as interstate buyers muscle in. Somebody please do something to stop this. – Glenn Clarke

98 people move to SA and a combined 30,000 leave Victoria and New South Wales. That makes 0.03%.

If someone thinks that shows SA is attractive they need to look at the maths. To meet still suggests a loss. – Bob Edwards

Commenting on the story: RAA pushes public transport Budget spend

Tap and pay would enable travel at will, instead of compelling us to find or buy a Metro card. 

We are all lending amounts, perhaps around $20, to the government with our prepaid cards – hundreds of thousands of us. What is this amount in total lent to the government? Tap and pay would let us spend, not lend. – David Donaldson

Commenting on the story: It should be called ‘the theatre of love’

I just want to say a big thank you to Samela for this wonderful article, and for her support for independent theatre and all unpaid theatre companies in SA.

As usual, she strikes to the heart of something very important in our lives. David Roach
