I’m leaving Australia to find a country to travel to.
I have no idea what to expect.
In fact, I don’t even know if I want to leave at all.
The only way to find out is to actually go and experience it for myself.
The last thing I want is to feel like I’m in some kind of cult.
But even though I know that Australia is not my first choice, I’m determined to find one that I feel comfortable with.
And I have some good reasons why.
I want a country that is culturally and socially diverse.
Australia is the only Western nation that still has a distinctly Christian culture.
While that doesn’t mean there’s no room for change, I also want a place that welcomes me and my family as I leave.
Australia has a rich and beautiful heritage.
In the last 150 years, Australia has been at the forefront of the fight for freedom of religion and freedom of conscience.
That history has never been truer than it is today.
Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has made it his personal mission to fight the rise of a fundamentalist, religious-based politics in Australia.
I’m hoping that by joining the fight, Australia can become a place where Australians can be more comfortable speaking their mind without fear of being judged for it.
We are a country founded on freedom of speech and freedom to worship.
It’s a founding principle of Australian culture that we hold no ill will towards anyone, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or any other reason.
While Australia is a country of equal opportunity and freedom, we also have a long history of discrimination against people who are different from us.
There are still too many people who still have an expectation that they must conform to a particular way of living or being perceived as different.
Australians have a deep respect for the freedoms that have been guaranteed by our founding documents.
But those freedoms are now being threatened by the forces of political correctness, a cultural-Marxist agenda, and a new, more authoritarian form of government.
Many Australians who are leaving Australia today will be disappointed when they arrive in a new country.
But they are not the only ones who will feel the pinch of uncertainty.
This isn’t just about going somewhere new.
It’s about finding a place to go and feeling like a part of something.
After spending a year in the United States, I’ve found that it’s not all about the money.
It’s about getting the right people and a place you like.
I will return to Australia one day, but I want it to be something special.
When you consider what it’s like to travel the world, the answers are simple: Australia is an incredible country.
Every day I spend in Australia feels like home.
Just because I have left doesn’t give me the right to assume that my home country will treat me any differently than the rest of the world.
For me, Australia is my home, and I don.
