His Twitter remark: “There’s many core challenges for local govt to focus on rather than being side-tracked by these sorts of debates” is ridiculous. His tweet is in response to a Herald Sun article debating of having an opening official prayer in Council when they are already doing a similar New Age modified spiritual ritual of acknowledging traditional indigenous owners.
CALD intelligence incorporates knowing that spiritual faith plays an important role in many communities. Debating whether to include prayer and/or acknowledgement of local indigenous tribes makes sense in a multicultural society, where cultural beliefs and values are intertwined with spiritual principles.
Cr Lake’s remark disregards respect for encompassing diversity in spiritual faith differences – prayer rituals do encompass interfaith and extend beyond Christianity….
