If you care about balanced Christian representation feel free to share this on. I had an interesting Facebook conversation this week with Allan Green, the CDP candidate for Greenway, where I asked him whether the Christian Democratic Party would support groups like Micah Challenge in pushing the major parties to meet their Millennium Development Goal commitments, specifically the commitment to raise aid to 0.7% GNI by 2015.
Rather than answering yes to that question, even though I’d asked for a clear yes or no answer, Allan Green evaded and instead touted his support for an aid agency called GK Philippines.
So I take that as a no, that Christian Democratic Party are not willing to support Christians groups like Micah Challenge.
In this respect Allan Green’s response was much like that of labour, who have also declined to give a clear timetable for implementation of the 0.7% commitment, except in this respect: his claim to represent Christians, without qualification.
So, just so it’s clear whom I represent and whom I don’t, I’ll let SEO and SMO speak for itself. I’ve taken the conversation off the Facebook group site where it was originally hosted and placed it here, on my personal site. And I’ll let you speak for yourselves, if you are a Christian who cares about this, join me in calling for Greenway candidate Allan Green and Christian Democratic Party to make a clear commitment to Micah Challenge and the Millennium Development Goals.
