Australian Politics In A Nutshell

Very interesting, and ‘scriptural’ too….

An interesting slant on politics!

Origin of Left and Right
I have often wondered why it is that Liberals are called the “right” and Labor are called the “left.”
By chance, a friend stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:

“The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.” Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV)

Also, Matthew 25:33 . . . He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. Thus sayeth the Lord. Amen.
Can’t get any simpler than that.
