In the wake of the Planned Parenthood attack in Colorado by a Christian terrorist last Friday, Senator Jacqui Lambie has questioned the allegiances of Chief Christian George Pell and suggested he be constantly tracked with an electronic anklet.
Lambie has concerns that Pell has not been sufficiently vocal in his condemnation of Christian terrorism in days since the atrocity.
Although Pell had quite clearly condemned the violence, Lambie thought his reference to ‘causative factors’ like evangelical Christianity were essentially justifying the attack.
Taking a break from her PHD in Islamic Theology which focuses on the beliefs of 10th century Shafi'i scholar Abū al-Hasan Alī ibn Ismā'īl al-Ash'arī, Lambie said “Maybe the second person who should have an electronic device put on them (after the bloody Grand Mufti) is the bloody Cardinal.”
Others say an electronic device attached to Lambie’s voicebox translating her hateful and ill-informed language into rational argument would be of more benefit to the community.
