From talking in tongues to ‘divine faith’ could Scott Morrison’s religion be a liability?

It’s not unusual to see worshippers speak in tongues, which is viewed as miraculous gift and a kind of direct language from God.

“Christianity in Australia is still the majority faith, even though there is a downward trend over the past decade,” Dr James said.

But Mr Morrison has voted with his religious conscience in the past. Last year, when the House of Representatives voted on legislation to allow same-sex marriage, the then-Treasurer abstained.

A review of religious freedoms conducted by former Liberal MP Philip Ruddock, undertaken after the passage of marriage equality, could be ‘sped up’ by Mr Morrison.
