- The Pledge to the Southern Cross
Morrison's expansion of Abbott's Pledge of Allegiance
I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE SOUTHERN CROSS, THE EUREKA STOCKADE, THE REPUBLIC OF WHICH IT BIRTHED, AND THE PILLARS OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION AND DEMOCRACY. I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE GREAT SOUTHERN LAND - AUSTRALIA - WHOSE WESTERN AND DEMOCRATIC BELIEFS I SHARE AND BELIEVE IN, WHOSE RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES I RESPECT, AND LAWS I WILL UPHOLD AND OBEY. MAY GOD PROTECT THIS LAND AND MAY AUSTRALIANS ALL REJOICE AND REMEMBER THOSE WHO DIED FOR THIS GLORIOUS NAME AND COUNTRY. I PLEDGE MY ALLEGIANCE TO AUSTRALIA AND DO NOT PLACE ANY COUNTRY IN FRONT OF OR ABOVE AUSTRALIA. ADVANCE AUSTRALIA, OR SO HELP ME GOD!
The Morrison Administration has modified the Pledge of Allegiance, which has been read before the Australian national anthem and at the start of every school day in every classroom except non-government and Kingsland schools.
