GG puts Jesus back in the picture

Governor-General Michael Jeffery said this week that he believes Jesus Christ is the greatest leader who ever lived.

As controversy continued to rage about Mel Gibson's film The Passion of the Christ, Major General Jeffery told business leaders in Perth that as a leader, Jesus Christ would never be bettered.

"By demonstrating supreme moral and physical courage, he embodied a universal wisdom and creed that has transcended time, place, culture and language such that his example continues to inspire many, many hundreds of millions - billions - of people around the world today," Maj Gen Jeffery said.

"Jesus Christ (is) the greatest personification of true leadership the world has ever seen or will ever see."
