Australia Was A Drinking Country

Jim Belshaw argues:

that Australia was a Christian country

How do we know?

The first official buildings built in new settlements after police stations and pubs were churches.

So Australia was a Christian country. In the same way, well actually to a lesser extent than, it was a country of criminals and vigourous drinkers.

I laughed when I read this. I think that that's about right, crims first and then drinkers!

That's why the Catholic Church is popular in Australia. It combines the drinking with religion. And recently there have also been some criminals involved.
