If companies allow kids to enter the workplace and expose them to unsafe conditions, they can get hefty fines. Why is a farm being treated differently? If farmers continue to die because they use quad bikes beyond the design limits for the machine, they are at fault. If it is a farm worker, the farmer should be prosecuted. 'Poor farmer' will be the public outcry perhaps, but 'she'll be right' may have worked when farm work was mainly carried out on foot or a slow tractor. It doesn't work with modern machinery. That requires decent training and control on unauthorized use. (Kids not allowed on 'tools' and workers not until properly trained).
In the name of Christianity millions, if not billions, of people have been murdered, whether it was by followers of the movement or those against it.
By pitching Christianity against other religious movements as being better or something to be proud of, you create further divide.

Cameron says Britain should 'feel proud that this is a Christian country' as he hails Church a 'living, active force for good'

"Race, poverty, inadequate legal assistance, and prosecutorial indifference to innocence conspired to create a textbook example of injustice,"
HaHaHa. G. W. Bush had just received the message that the gold and money stashed under the TWC had been successfully 'recovered' for sharing purposes amongst his friends. Of course he could be generous.
That's right GREED is the name of the game.
