POLITICS: How much brain power does one need to vote for Fred Nile?

Why is Fred Nile's self-styled Christian Democratic Party running 9 candidates for the Lower House seat of Bradfield? Maybe because the average human brain has 9 times the amount of power as the average CDP brain.

Certainly whoever came up with the following questionnaire didn't have much grey matter to play with.

The most important political (as opposed to theological) issue for the CDP is affirming that Jesus Christ is the son of God. The New Testament may call upon us to render to Caeser what is owed to Caeser, but Fred wants us to render all to his CDP's theocratic dogma.

Then there is Fred Nile's reference to "brave Israel". We need to back it even if it means "blockading Iran". And what dorm should this blockade take? Perhaps the kind of blockade which the people of Bethlehem currently enjoy?

But the most hilarious is Fred's call for free "4G" mobile calls and free data. Fred's really up with the technology. No doubt Fred will soon change his mind when he finds out just how much more widespread porn will become.

Still, all this does raise an interesting question for neurological research - just how little of one's brain is required to vote for any one of the nine CDP candidates in the Bradfield ballot?
