Wong or Plebersik as Labor leader. They are both strong intelligent women and would do a much better job than the current male possibilities.

More nonsense from psion.

Some people die because of their religious beliefs. Perhaps you haven't heard of this?

Well not all people who voted in favour of SSM were atheists psion. Perhaps you missed that?

On the other hand we once had a female prime minister, an open atheist, who was anti SSM. Perhaps you missed that as well?

I agree but think Albo is OK too.

Could you imagine if Wong got the job? Not only a woman but a lesbian PM! Trump might declare war on Australia.

And some people die from natural causes. What's the point? How does that address what you quoted in the slightest way?

Perhaps you need to re-read the discussion between Arth and myself. You clearly have no idea what is being discussed.
