Essentially it's another example of an economy in need of major action to get the Government Budget under control where the poor are the easy target for cosmetic action, Instead of chasing a fair share of tax from business, investing in infrastructure to drive employment we have ramped up 'crack downs' on benefits and reduced penalty rates for hospitality and service workers.

"Do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God" much better than loving justice, doing mercy...

What would have been clever would have been how you could discover God's message connecting with their community of people as they encounter and live out of their understanding of the good book...

I see church signs with in jokes, crappy attempts at humour, judgement, acting as if the 'wisdom' on them is vital to the passer by etc etc and all they do is confirm the impression of us being 'out of touch', midddle class, unauthentic hacks!! Keep sending me the examples that say I'm wrong!!
