Brian Harradine has died.
As a Christian I have always felt we should 'flex our muscle'...that is we should not just feel that Christianity requires us to be 'nice'. But that the principles we hold dear should be brought to bear in the national debate. It has not always been possible
Brian Harradine certainly sought to do so. Not everyone, not every Christian, or even Catholic, would agree with all his stands on the wide range of issues but here Frank Brennan talks about him in a rather balanced sort way (listen to Frank here)
