Panic stations

As young parents, my wife and I were committed Catholics, we attended Mass every Sunday, we baptised our children and sent them to Catholic Schools. I am no longer a practicing Catholic but consider myself a man with Christian ideals. With these beliefs, I can’t accept how we can keep refugees locked up in undesirable hotel rooms year after year. So how is it that our Prime Minister, who is supposedly a committed Christian, can continue to incarcerate these poor people. I can only assume that it is because the bureaucrats in Canberra believe that the majority of us support that attitude. I know for a fact that the vast majority of my acquaintances don’t. I wonder what would happen if an opinion poll were held today that reported that the vast majority were against this incarceration? Panic stations maybe?
