Welcome to the Iron Fist Velvet Glove Secular Index for Federal Politicians.
We take the view that many religious doctrines are harmful to our society and a person who has strong religious beliefs is more likely to oppose progressive reform of our laws. For that reason, it is important to know the nature of religious belief held by our political leaders. This index is an attempt to summarise that information.
Do you think it is unfair to question the religious belief of our political leaders? Check out this article by former NSW Premier Kristina Keneally.
We have listed our understanding of the particular faith followed by our Federal politicians and a rating of their commitment to secular values. We have no problem with politicians who are extremely pious provided they do not seek to impose their religion on other people or seek special privileges or advantages for their religion.
The index rates commitment to secular values.
0 – A person who actively argues against secular values and has demonstrated a shameless desire to use government resources to promote their particular religion and who would cross the floor and vote against party policy if such policy contravened their religious conviction.
3- A person who believes religions are valuable, that they should be supported and encouraged by government and would strongly oppose removing privileges but is not necessarily a loud advocate or organiser for religions.
5 – Neutral. We have been unable to find evidence of secular values.
8 – A person who would probably vote for secular reforms but does not publicly argue in favour of such reforms.
10 – A person who may or may not be extremely religious but who recognises that religion is a private matter which should receive no assistance from government and who actively advocates for the removal of special religious privileges.
If the index score is blank it means we haven’t scored this politician yet. You can help by sending us an email with information and links.
Alternatively, leave a comment below with your suggested score and information.
It would be great if you include links to articles which support your suggested score.
If there is limited public information about a particular politician or if you just like to do a thorough job you could also send the politician a questionnaire. Here is a link to a suggested questionnaire.
If you think it is unfair or unusual to examine the religious beliefs of politicians you might be interested in Pew Research data regarding the US Congress of 2019.
