According to a media release issued by conservative pressure group, the Australian Christian Lobby, the sweeping victory by the Liberal National Party (LNP) in the recent Queensland State Election was due to "disregard" of Queensland's "Christian constituency"

The release cites ACL's Qld Director Wendy Francis stating that the decision by LNP Leader Campbell Newman to participate in an ACL-sponsored webcast, and a corresponding decision by Labor to not have a representative participate, demonstrates that Labour disrespected the Christian constituency and thus compounded the anti-Labour mood of the electorate.

"It was well known in the Christian constituency that most Labor MPs had voted to deny children the chance to at least begin life with a mother and father through controversial surrogacy laws allowing singles, two men or two women to acquire babies. It was also obvious that Labor’s high-profile championing of marriage-mimicking civil unions did not win it any votes, particularly as it was clearly rushed through as a political stunt to support gay activists campaigning at the ALP National Conference in December last.” Ms Francis is quoted as claiming.
