The Morrison Government’s draft religious discrimination bill gives religious groups a licence to discriminate against LGBTIQ+ people.
Discrimination harms everyone and all Australians should have protection under the law. People of faith should be free to practice their religion without fear of harm or prejudice.
But in this case, offering more protections to religious institutions is a trojan horse for the Morrison Government to enshrine discrimination into law.
This is the opposite of what an anti-discrimination bill should do, making it easier for one group of people to target others on the basis of their sexuality or gender identity.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison needs to commit to ensuring that religious protections don’t come at the expense of LGBTIQ+ people.
We can build a future where everyone is treated with compassion and respect, but only if we fight against every attempt to divide us.
Will you help us defeat this latest attack on the LGBTIQ+ community?
