Australia. May God

Killing in the name of God is never right

Mistreating others in the name of God is never right

everyone should be free to live their own life, to worship their own god


to kill in the name of God is almost unimaginable

I can’t give an absolute categorical assurance

there won’t be an act of God at some point in time


thank God that there are so many people who have put so much aside…

thank god, they have succeeded

…so that they are not a burden on the taxpayer


God speed on the way to Hobart

an iconic surfing spot, a beautiful piece of God’s own country

to sell a good product for a competitive price and thank God


that long paddock system and look, thank God we have got it

but thank God it’s gone to be replaced by this truly magnificent building

and thank God that’s what there is


thank God there are a multitude of different voices

thank God that’s stopped

so far, thank god, they have succeeded


May God bless you and welcome home

this is no way to serve God

stop the boats and thank God


what they are doing is against God

Nothing to do with religion

The only god they worship is death


god we want to be exporting plenty of foodstuffs

This country has not flourished because success was inevitable or ordained by God

thank God so many of our food manufacturers are very good at it


God knows there’s been an absolute semitrailer load of funding over the years

it’s important that people join the team and thank God

make the most of the good things that God has given us


may the God of justice answer all our prayers

thank God the boats are stopping

may God bless the country you are helping to protect


It is not about God

The only god they worship is death

and thank God we won the Federal election.

by God, that our country is so much better than this
