Atheists battle Christians in socialist push

AUSTRALIAN atheists are more than twice as likely as Christians to support socialist policies, according to a recent Newspoll survey. 

The survey, published by The Australian newspaper on December 26, reveals that Christians and atheists are among the nation’s most polarised in their political views. 

Their sizeable political divide is most evident in their attitudes towards the extremist Greens Party. Sixteen per cent of atheists claim to support The Greens compared to only seven per cent of Christians – a variance of 129 per cent. 


The Newspoll survey also indicates that non-religious voters are almost 40 per cent more likely to vote for Labor than are Christians.

In two party preferred terms, atheists would gift Labor 134 federal parliamentary seats while leaving the  Coalition with only 17. Alternately, Christians would decimate Labor delivering it just nine federal seats.

According to the latest 2016 Census, 30 per cent of Australians claim no religion compared to 52 per cent who identify as being Christian.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison, a committed Christian himself, is also an object of huge disagreement between the faithful and non-religious.

Seventy five per cent of Christians claim to be satisfied with the prime minister’s performance while 22 per cent are dissatisfied.


By comparison, 40 per cent of atheists are dissatisfied with PM Morrison – a whopping 82 per cent more than Christians.

Both sides, however,  are equally unhappy with federal Labor leader Anthony Albanese. Forty per cent of atheists and 43 per cent of Christians agree he’s doing a less than satisfactory job.

Almost 40 per cent more Christians (68%) believe Mr Morrison is the better prime minister when compared to Mr Albanese (49%).

Only 22 per cent of Christians prefer Mr Albanese as PM, almost 60 per cent less than the number of atheists who would  like to see him in the Lodge (35%).

While Mr Albanese’s personal faith is unclear, he has previously called on the ALP to “reconnect with people of faith” – his goal being to repair ill will spawned by predecessor Bill Shorten, who targeted Mr Morrison during the 2019 election asking if he believed homosexuals went to hell.

Mr Morrison, meanwhile, is Australia’s first Pentecostal prime minister.


He was raised in the Presbyterian Church of Australia, which partly merged into the Uniting Church when he was a child.

He later became a Pentecostal, and now attends the Horizon Church, which is affiliated with the Australian Christian Churches, the Australian branch of the Assemblies of God.

He has previously said “the Bible is not a policy handbook, and I get very worried when people try to treat it like one”.

In late 2017, Morrison stated that he would become a stronger advocate for protections for religious freedom.

During his maiden speech to parliament in 2008 he said: “Australia is not a secular country, it is a free country.”PC

  1. Why would anyone think that atheists and Christians would not having opposing views – one is under the Holy Spirit, the other directed by Satan…polar opposite world views naturally conflict….spiritual war is nothing new, but at least we know who wins in the end, and it ain’t Satan!

  2. Communism just doesn’t work. It’s been tried in 10 different ways and the death count is now in the hundreds of millions – starvation, execution, industrial-scale extermination. The socialist ego needs to end.

  3. Pro-abortion, pro-euthanasia atheists are a dying breed. We just need to wait them out. Then life can finally return to civility. God willing.
