Dictating to democracy - rule by religion?

Dictating to democracy – rule by religion?

Most recently, Archbishop George Pell has hit the airwaves with a “warning” that members of the New South Wales Parliament face “consequences” in their religious lives if they support a bill to expand stem cell research in the state. He is reported as saying that Catholic members of Parliament “would need to think seriously about taking Holy Communion, the sacrament central to Catholic life, if they voted for therapeutic cloning” (Alexandra Smith and Linda Morris, “Catholic MPs to defy Pell over bill” Sydney Morning Herald, June 6, 2007). This raises questions as to what the people can and should expect of their elected representatives. It also raises questions about the role of the church.

Australia's facing the same putrid nonsense we are from the theocrats.
