The City Of Churches is alight, as South Australia’s political leaders went head-to-head for the first time this election campaign in a fiery debate at the Adelaide Hilton Hotel earlier this afternoon.

In case you missed this historic showdown that was broadcast live on ABC 24, there seems to only be two horses in this race.

The current SA Government, led by Issaac De Groot from The Ban Alcohol and Catholics Party, are once again campaigning heavily on banning Catholics and alcohol from both public and private buildings right across the state.

They are also pushing to remove any mention of Meghan Markle on South Australian TV and radio.

However, early polling suggests that the people of South Australia might be looking for a change, with the Barossa Deutsch Lutherans (BDL) expected to pick up a four more crucial seats in Adelaide’s North and West outskirts.

The BDL have long since shaken off their historic ties to the global National Socialism movement, and are running a very simple 2022 election campaign – as they battle to take power of the SA lower house.

Focusing specifically on the repudiation of papal and ecclesiastical authority in favour of the sola scriptura, the rejection of five of the traditional seven sacraments affirmed by the Supreme Pontiff, and more funding for anti-serial killer programmes in South Australian public schools.

During today’s debate, BDL leader Hilde Krause also vowed to change back all of the German-sounding townships that were renamed at the outbreak of World War 1 – during a lengthy sermon where she accused the De Groot of extreme hypocrisy as a teetotaller who willingly takes political donations from the Coopers Family.

However, Premier De Groot dismissed the revolutionary Krause as nothing more than an ‘idealistic colonial missionary’ – before challenging her to name five prominent Aboriginal families from her own electorate. It was a task that appeared too difficult for the native Deutsch speaker, who ended up listing Eddie Betts twice.

In the COVID era, many will already be heading to cast their vote at pre-polling stations, namely the immunocompromised South Australians, as well as those who subscribe to religious dominations that ban them from leaving their homes during the Sabbath.

While the election looks like it will come down to a neck and neck race between the Ban Catholics and Alcohol Party and the Barossa Deutsch Luterhans, the ABC’s election analyst Antony Green has warned journalists to not write off the Quiet South Australians – many whom appear drawn to the socially conservative policies of the Moonta Street Friends Of Shanghai Party.
