'for the Lord sees not as man sees; man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart'
The article in The Age actually gives an accurate report of what is happening in the Victorian DLP. There is a faction which wants to turn the DLP into a catholic party, when it has never been a catholic party ( even if its members were predominately catholic).A political party aims to get people elected to office and narrowing one's appeal to the public is a mistake. The DLP is not a one issue party. Yes it is pro life but it has other policies too. Any party which was to have as part of its platform the outlawing of contraception , would be committing electoral suicide.The DLP is not the Catholic Church on earth, it is a political party.
