So, I read that New South Wales has apparently discovered another area of life where religious vultures can be deployed to prey/pray upon the weak and vulnerable, just that this time it’s not schoolkids but gamblers:
In an Australian first, problem gamblers could soon get help from chaplains based in New South Wales pubs and clubs.
The 12-month trial will see a uniformed Salvation Army chaplain stationed in club gaming rooms at the Mingara Club on the state’s central coast.
The so-called club chaplain will offer support to problem gamblers and be available to make home visits.
Available to make home visits, huh? Psychologically untrained religious homophobes giving advice to gambling addicts? You have got to be kidding me.
