Those Wacky Democrats
It seems that Senator Allison is not content with getting the abortion drug RU-486 out of the clutches of the evil conservatives.

Senator Allison has attempted to push Australia further down the secular humanist path by trying to remove tax exemptions for religious organisations and ban prayer from government. The notice said
calls on the Government, if it is serious about a secular state, to take steps to:
(i) remove religious references from statutory oaths and pledges,
(ii) abolish official parliamentary prayers,
(iii) remove tax advantages that solely apply for religious purposes…
I can't believe I used to vote for these guys....
Thankfully, the senate floor squashed this little item quicker than you'd squash a cockroach.
