Since 1857, the Lord’s Prayer has been a longstanding part of the formal processes of both houses of the Victorian Parliament. The Lord’s Prayer is a marker of the long Westminster Parliamentary tradition and a reflection of our Judaeo Christian tradition of individualism and rule of law.
Fiona Patten’s Reason Party plans to do away with the reading of the Lord’s Prayer at the commencement of the Victorian Parliament’s Legislative Council (Upper House).
Fiona Patten tried two years ago to remove the Lord’s Prayer and you can see the Minority Report where I expressed my firm commitment to the retention of the Lord’s Prayer
Please support the retention of the Lord’s Prayer at the commencement of sittings in the Legislative Council (Upper House) of the Victorian parliament. Download a hard copy of the petition here.
