He embodies the state and its salvational mission: PM astonished by Morrison sermon.
The Prime Minister said it was “astonishing” that former prime minister Scott Morrison suggested people should put their faith in God rather than governments.
Mr Morrison told worshippers at a Perth Pentecostal church last weekend: “We trust him. We don’t trust in governments, We don’t trust in the United Nations, thank goodness.”
“I just thought wow, this guy was the prime minister of Australia and had that great honor of leading the government,” Mr Albanese told the ABC.
“I find it astonishing that in what must have been, I guess, a moment of frankness. He has said he doesn’t believe in government. I believe that government does play a role in people’s lives and our living standards.”
It was dishonest Twitter-whistling for the Prime Minister to disregard that Morrison was talking about spiritual trust and salvation. And it isn’t “astonishing” that Christians trust God more than governments. It is astonishing that statists trust governments as much as they did when their big names were killing 150,000,000 people in the twentieth century. The tragedy of the later Morrison era was that he didn’t go to war against those ‘government’ evils he now decries. In the name of ‘covid safety,’ the nation was ravaged on his watch.
Morrison is a Christian? I suppose he says he is, but I never noticed anything about his government that was Christian friendly, or opposed the overwhelming anti Christian floodtide drowning Australia and the West in general. Hypocrite.
Yes, the atheists fight to implement their beliefs but Christians in Parliament don’t.
So true Jannie, Smirko is 100% fraud. Everyone at a glance can see the hypocrisy of this snake freshly removed from leadership telling folks not to trust government that he is currently a highly paid member of whilst also bursting with pride when praised by the WEF as an outstanding globalist disciple.
At the Pentecostal church I attended until the 1980s (which was very conservative and I believe still is) Morrison and his ilk would have been regarded as left wing; certainly no Liberal.
Just to repeat the point, though: Morrison was talking about trust vis-a-vis salvation. He wasn’t talking about secular mistrust of government; in fact, he makes a point of saying that is NOT what he is talking about. Albanese has verballed him on that just to placate Twitter and the ABC.
Pentecostal Morrison spent his career, culminating in the last two years carefully and deliberately bringing the total state techno-biosecurity beast system that will enslave us all into Australia.
Clap for your clown happy clappers.
Eight months ago, in what was probably the lowest point in the lowest point in Australian history, recalcitrant NT residents were banned from freely leaving their homes in designated “low immunisation zones” unless they capitulated and injected an experimental drug into themselves. Those “zones” were created based on Morrison’s nasty cheka like AIR apparatus snitching an endless feed of their personal data to their captors. The political and cultural foundation for the creation of those “zones” – and everything that happened across this now smoking ruin of a society during that time, was based on Morrison’s crusade of weaving a fanatical “no jab no pay / play” mania into the very fabric of Australian existence. Also as a minor footnote, as PM of the Commonwealth, with the territory a mere administrative zone of the Commonwealth – he could have nixed that particularly evil moment at will, but instead he endorsed it.
And everything else across this country at that time, from every person who was run out of their career, job, society, banned from the shops, hospitals, aged care homes and life, those who self imolated, those who got bashed and terrorised by the police for protesting their rights as what we imagined were free people. There he was for all, the technical marvel he built in the modern AIR with it’s data API’s suddenly opened up and snitching to all and sundry about what is, or isn’t inside your body. And always echoing in everyone’s ears “no jab no pay”…now extended to no jab no shop / play / last moments with your loved ones / hospitals / doctors / even life.
All only possible because of Scott Morrison, not just PM, but minister for social services when in his smugo manner, built and entrenched the zero tolerance “no jab no pay” ideological, cultural and legislative concrete bunker that these madmen hid in for the last two years mowing down the old Australian society. All protected with Junta like secrecy in his treacherous and illegal “National Cabinet”, the prisoners unable to even escape his Jonestown like cult country thanks to him exercising that ancient seven year old law inside the 2015 Biosecurity Act that he helped pass.
By your fruits ye shall know them. That Pentecostals haven’t run him out on a rail. That is all we need to know.
Well I certainly don’t trust any government, nor unelected bureaucrats whether they be UN or WEF.
The events of the last three years have shattered any faith or trust I had remaining in the vast majority of politicians.
But I have always had the greatest contempt for the likes of the UN and WEF.
The buck stopped nowhere during that rolling, unprecedented disgrace – by design, of course. That’s what ‘national cabinet’ was all about.
But it should have stopped on the Prime Minister’s desk and he should have used every head of power, influence, bullying and lawfare available to him and the Commonwealth to save Australians from what happened. He didn’t.
We also have to acknowledge that most of the victims – ie: the population – were strongly in favour of the fascism. Morrison didn’t break the country. It has been broken for a long time.
One of the most telling indices of this, to me, is focus on ‘aged care.’ Nobody gives a shit about that anymore – to the extent that they ever did – because most Australians now believe the state owns small children and the old. In April, it was reported that 50 per cent of residents in aged care ‘homes’ were suffering from malnutrition. While all of the beautiful people were saying the economic destruction during the ‘pandemic’ was worth it to save one granny, they were happy to let their parents starve.
Something about millstones comes to mind.
Morrison’s National Cabinet attacked faith in God.
Pretending that going soft on Andrews was in the sake of keeping politics out of the response might have been a mistake too.
You cannot be a christian and a politician no matter what party because your first allegiance is to God not to parties etc. Christians are a distinct minority in Australia or any other country.
Wilberforce was the last politician to realise if you remined true to biblical values you had little future and that was with rotten boroughs.
The other thing to remember is Morrison and court are pentecostals not evangelicals, Their theology is not strong.

Excellent summation of Scummo, who finished off what Howard started.
(Note: Scummo is not a boomer – he is Gen X)
CL- yes, I think Morrison was verballed. Patricia Karvelas seems to have started it on ABC TV on Tuesday morning.
Morrison was a coward like most of them and allowed Australians to be fleeced by the grifters otherwise known as the medical/pharmaceutical industry. Is there an easier way to screw the population than legal drugs?
All justified criticism of Morrison notwithstanding, he was verballed. The reason behind that matters. Albanese is no good at anything, portfolio-wise. Hate is all he really does well. Punching down about an address given at a church somewhere is not only pathetic, it’s beneath his office.
Their theology is not strong.
A committed Christian would have been willing to lose office to fight the good fight during the ‘pandemic.’ Morrison is a typical ‘prosperity gospel’ narcissist, however – for him, the great religious event would have been his deliverance to another term. To mega-church evengelicals, it’s all about ‘me.’
pentecostals are not evangelicals.
Funny how Morrison could only bring himself to say this AFTER he lost office.
Criticising Morrison is not showing hate.
If you want to see hate in action read one of your articles.
You lie casually, Trampo. I know you’ve abandoned Christianity but you still ought to check your zombie faith in American Democrats and the ALP.
Because that was exactly Morrison’s point. He was talking about trusting in God alone for salvation; he wasn’t talking about the secular value and efficacy of government. In fact, he specifically said that was NOT his point.
Albanese is an intellectual lightweight with no portfolio expertise on anything; that’s why he does sheltered workshop interviews with Virginia Trioli and demeans his office by raving on about a church sermon. He’s already floundering.
It’s more accurate to say that evangelicals are not pentecostalists.
Stop trying to sound informed. It’s embarrassing.
Christians are a distinct minority in Australia or any other country.
So are Greens, so what?
If you want to see hate in action read one of your articles.
Or some of your comments?
Couldn’t agree more, despite my dislike of Morrison, C.L.
Albo is a shallow, nasty, talentless little man.
Scomo has always been a totally unchristian lying bullshit artist.
Mate you are a catholic so you never read the bible. Pentecostals are just as bad.
I think you are mistaking albo for Abbott.
The point is Morrison should have said this well before he did. The reason he di not was because he was in office.
A person who ran as a Christian would not get elected.
No you mean one of your comments.
“Mate you are a catholic so you never read the bible.”
Oh my, the sneering bigotry.
Forget the sneering bigotry, that is standard for modern leftists. Look at the incoherence of the whole comment.
Simple example, Abbott was well known to be an active Christian, and was elected with a thumping majority (despite the sneering of the media).
Remember, that Non Mentis cannot write a coherent sentence, nor punctuate reliably.
PS, then there was KRudd, who held regular media conferences as he was coming out of church on Sundays. He might not be very Christian, but he ran portraying himself as one.
you are a catholic so you never read the bible
Damn. I still have to work out how to do the frigging block quote thing, got it the wrong way round.
I don’t think Albanese was just being ignorant, he knows his audience. The Australian urban everyman professional class – properly divorced from god, feel the pull towards his words. They see the government as a tangible god on earth at this point. They have immense faith in it, as zealous as many martyrs of history towards God. Their entire cultural milieu is driving that theme: the ruling apparatus loves you and will protect you, there is no such thing as god in heaven, here is the closest thing to a god right here on earth…look at what it can do, miracles and wonders, just have faith.
The sheer ignorance from you is so predictable.
Now you are a theologist!
That would be news to the Christians in parliament.
I’m off for the arvo.
I apologise for calling you a liar, Trampo.
That was uncalled for.
Perhaps Von Trampis missed it (I suspect he misses a lot of things) but during the election campaign Anthony Albanese attended Easter Mass in northern Queensland with his girlfriend and made sure the MSM knew all about it. He also, during the election campaign, visited his old school, St Mary’s Cathedral School here in Sydney, and was mobbed by pimply school boys. He made sure the MSM were all over that as well.
Albanese’s mantra since entering parliament has been….” I was raised with three great faiths; the Catholic Church, the Labor Party and South Sydney Football Club.”.
Albanese is also quite happy to pull the “Catholic line” when it suits him. But you see, unlike Abbott, Albanese is an utter hypocrite who only uses his “Christianity” to harvest a few votes. When Albanese was sworn in as PM, you think he was sworn in on a bible? Nope.
Oh and Von Trampis, it’s time you retired to your filthy hole.
Pentecostals are obsessed with the bible, it’s literally the basis for their whole world. What are you on about?
Honourable thing to say CL, but you are being far too hard on yourself.
Pentecostals only read certain parts of the bible. Why do so many of them fall for the satanic attractiveness of the prosperity gospel.
Catholics believe Mary was without sin thus being a potential messiah. This has NO biblical support at all. That is but one example.
No-one but no-one has ever said Albo was a strict catholic.
No politician has ever had a platform of being a Christian first, last and always.
to take but 5 examples. Howard, Rudd, Abbott ,Turnbull and Morrison all claimed to be christians. Were they different to Gillard. It was hard to see
Pentecostals only read certain parts of the bible.
Evidence? Or is this statement simply a reflection of your personal prejudice?
Why do so many of them fall for the satanic attractiveness of the prosperity gospel.
That is a weakness of lefties, who perpetually babble on about “What would Jesus do?”, while calling for wealth re-distribution, because they believe that the Bible says so.
Howard, Rudd, Abbott ,Turnbull and Morrison all claimed to be christians. Were they different to Gillard. It was hard to see
You’re showing your prejudices again. Different? Are you saying that their policies were identical? Or that they were all the same sex? Or simply blathering in a vain attempt to sound knowledgeable?
PS: Do try to get your religious bigotry under control. Get someone to help you look “bigotry” in the dictionary.
Von Trampis can’t even back track without making a fool of himself. He’s gone from “Mate you are a catholic so you never read the bible. Pentecostals are just as bad.” to “Pentecostals only read certain parts of the bible.” And this corker, “Catholics believe Mary was without sin thus being a potential messiah“. I’m not even a Catholic and even I know that’s codswallop.
You’re a moron, which is quite forgivable. What’s not forgivable is your bigotry.
Not at all an uncommon belief among RC’s (hence immaculate / free of original sin), not to say they necessarily all hold to this – every group has variety after all – maybe CL could comment. One of the ‘watershed’ doctrinal differences compared with bible believing Christians.
