Telling you nothing new, but the CL approach to history follows some simple, immutable, rules:
a. no Labor (or in America, Democrat) politician ever did anything great, ever. Or, if pressed, deserves credit for anything great.
b. the Catholic Church was the greatest, most heroic, institute for the advancement of humanity, ever;
c. all figures in history have to pass the purity test of their attitude to abortion and contraception before anything positive can be said about them.
