Nalliah Launches New Political Party - ACV Online - Australian Christian Voices
Conservative Christian Pastor and head of the "Catch the Fire Ministries", Danny Nalliah, has launched a new political party, Rise Up Australia.

According to the Age Online news site, Mr Nalliah's new party will concentrate on opposing multiculturalism.

The Age Online cites Sri Lankan born Mr Nalliah as stating that although he supports Australia being "multi-etnic", in his view it has only one culture - a culture born from "common sense" and democracy.

Mr Nalliah has been a figure of controversy in the past, having been the subject of an official complaint from the Islamic Council of Victoria that he vilified Muslims (which was later dismissed), and drawing wide-spread condemnation for a statement after the Black Saturday bushfires that the tragedy was a punishment from God for Australian's tolerance of homosexuals.

Rise Up Australia is expected to field candidates in for both the House of Representatives and the Senate in Victoria, Western Australia, Queensland, and Tasmania at the 2013 federal Election, and candidates for the Senate in other States.

I dont't think they will get a large vote in Western Australia. The Christian rights vote is all tired up with the Christian Democrats. They would share 'Catch the Fire Ministries' views ...
