Victorian Council of Churches: The ACL does not represent all Australian Christians

Dec 8, 2011 | Australian newsNews

The Executive of the Victorian Council of Churches today expressed dismay at the one-sided view of Christianity portrayed in the Australian media.

“There are well-organised and well-financed lobby groups who routinely present their views as “the” Christian position”, General Secretary Theo Mackaay said.

“The community needs to know that there is a range of views held on many topics in the Christian tradition, just as there are numerous views in all areas of human endeavour. It is important that no one view captures the attention of the community, of the media and of government.”
