Compass: God in the Lodge

Prime Ministers and religion

The second in this two-part series examines the religious beliefs of modern Australian Prime Ministers. 

Part 2 (1966 – 2014) looks at how Harold Holt epitomised a change in the religious tenure of life in 1960s Australia, how Gough Whitlam was our most religiously-informed non-believer, and how John Howard appealed to Christian voters.
