A reflection on anti-Catholic sectarianism in Australia
Scroll down. I know self-pity including from conservative Christians is uncool but good point. I understand Gerald Henderson is essentially an Aussie Tea Partier and Australia another brand of Anglo ex-Protestant secularist country: California’s climate and surfers, Texas’s man-sized frontier attitude (the national myth tributed/sent up by Crocodile Dundee and Outback, itself based on the movie and not Australia itself, its founders say) and Britain’s socialism and secularism and hatred of Catholicism and a related accent (Anthony LaPaglia was made fun of for being Italian, a reason he actually changed his accent to his hybrid half-New York one).
