Though I disagree with the guy (and just you know, love, his form) he did used to be the Commanding Officer of the SASR. So some people do take him seriously... and I think sometimes you'll find they take him more seriously than his views.
Though you'd be surprised how much his stocks have gone down in politics since the ANZAC day episode... people tend not to take him as seriously any more.
There was (is) a really good academic article about Christianity in Australian politics (it's thesis is that the religious right's influence in Australian politics is overstated and overestimated):

If you're actually interested in any real debate/discussion around this issue you should give it a read.
