Scott Mor­ri­son must apol­o­gise

The Saturday Paper - - Letters & Editorial -

By ask­ing ASIO to de­lay its as­sess­ment pro­cesses while the law was be­ing changed to abol­ish per­ma­nent pro­tec­tion visas (Karen Mid­dle­ton, “ASIO’s refugee warn­ings re­pealed”, Fe­bru­ary 3–9) Scott Mor­ri­son demon­strated his fail­ure to grasp the cen­tral mes­sage pro­claimed by Je­sus Christ. In­stead of treat­ing asy­lum seek­ers with re­spect, he acted as if their wellbeing was of no con­se­quence. If he wants to be for­given, he needs to apol­o­gise to these peo­ple and to his God. I don’t have the courage to dwell on how he would un­der­stand any God. Per­haps he should share his re­cently ac­quired in­sight with Peter Dutton: it is not smart to in­ter­fere with the work­ings of ASIO.
