I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

Australia Requires Knowledge of Judeo-Christian Values For Citizenship

Australia proposes to require a test of all who desire citizenship. After four years of residency a 20 question test will be given. The 20 questions will be drawn at random from a pool of 200 questions about general knowledge of the values and goals of the Australian nation. It will be expected that applicants get at least 12 questions correct or they may be refused citizenship.

The values of a Judeo-Christian culture are drawn from the goodness of the word of God. They are not scandalous. They are the simple values of a nation. They are explained as "respect for the equal worth, dignity and freedom of the individual, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and secular government, freedom of association, support for parliamentary democracy and the rule of law, equality under the law, equality of men and women, equality of opportunity, peacefulness, tolerance, mutual respect and compassion for those in need."

Australia expects a working knowledge of this. Shouldn't America do likewise?

Maybe Australia will take our place and then be the last stand for some semblance of Christian values.
Just extreme speculation. Don't anybody blow a circuit.
