It is important that we respect and preserve our Christian heritage and our culture in all levels of Government. We can respect other cultures without throwing out our own great culture. Our culture is what has made this country a great place to live in.During the first Council meeting, I moved that we re-introduce the Christian prayer at the beginning of meetings. This is traditional practice in Federal and State Parliament and most other City Councils in Australia. The motion was lost because all Labor Councillors voted against it.
