Rudd on Christianity and politics

Australia's new Labor prime minister, Kevin Rudd, is a serious Catholic who appears to be conversant with his church's social teachings. His address on Christianity and Politics, delivered two years ago at New College, University of New South Wales, indicates that he is grappling with issues of faith and justice — at least in the area of labour relations. Rudd's article last year in The Monthly, Faith in Politics, caught the attention of the press, leading to what one observer called an unholy row. If there are any Australians reading this post, I'd love to get your views on Rudd's premiership in the comments below.
