Election Survey - Commonwealth 2014 - Q1


Q1 - Prayers in Parliament

Prayers in parliament are an important daily reminder that we must all ultimately answer to the higher authority of Almighty God.  The prayers, which consist of the Lord's Prayer and a request for God's guidance, are an expression of the Christian foundation of our nation.  According to the latest census, about 61% of Australians identify with Christianity.

Would you vote to support the continued opening of parliament with Christian prayers?

The Labor Party has no intention of changing the current practice whereby Parliament opens with the Lord’s Prayer.

Liberal National Coalition

The Coalition remains firmly committed to Parliament opening each day with the Lord's Prayer.

The Coalition recognises the significant influence that Judaeo-Christian principles have had on the character and ethos of Australian society. We believe the Australian Parliament should represent the society it seeks to serve, and that offering the Lord's Prayer each day prior to its commencement is an appropriate way to do so.
