Let’s just ignore the poor! Recently Sacred Heart Mission Chief Executive Michael Perusco asked Opposition Leader Tony Abbott whether a government under his direction would continue with the Rudd government's goal of halving homelessness by 2020. His answer was no.
In justifying his stance, Abbott quoted from the Gospel of Matthew: ''The poor will always be with us,'' and referred to the fact there is little a government can do for people who choose to be homeless.
