I stand with Margaret Court and freedom of speech in Australia

Since her public comments against same-sex marriage at the beginning of the year, Australian and International tennis legend Margaret Court has been subject to distasteful harassment and intimidation. Regardless of where people stand on the issue of same-sex marriage, respectful freedom of speech in Australia must be valued and protected.

With the death of Hugh Hefner last week many people, including women across the globe have been paying tribute to a man who “revolutionised publishing and helped usher in the sexual revolution with a vision of beauty, sophistication and the libertine lifestyle.” Leading Australian fashion lingerie retailer Bras N Things also jumped on the bandwagon describing Hefner as a man “that inspired us all”.

Darebin City Council seeking to silence ‘No’ campaigners in Marriage Debate

Darebin City Councillors will next week vote on an emergency motion which proposes to allow access to council facilities for same-sex marriage campaigners. The proposed motion follows the Federal government’s announcement of a September postal vote on the Marriage Act. As part of the council motion, ‘No’ campaigners will be barred from using council facilities and the council will issue a warning to local churches not to campaign against same-sex marriage.

I Stand for Freedom of Speech and Religion in Tasmania

Cornerstone Church Pastor Campbell Markham and street preacher Mr David Gee have been reported to the Tasmanian Anti-Discrimination Commissioner due to their comments on same-sex marriage and atheists, highlighting an attitude of cultural victimhood that is gripping the State and the Country. It seems today when we hear something we do not like, we run to the Discrimination courts.

Keep your promise to let Australians decide on the Marriage Act in a plebiscite

News broke this week that some members of the Liberal party are working hard to ensure the passing of legalisation for same-sex marriage in Australia. It is believed that members are working on a Private Members Bill which will be presented to Parliament through a conscience vote. This vote would then replace the government’s current plan to hold a national plebiscite.

Shocking jewellery created from 'leftover' embryos highlights need for tough regulation on ART companies

This week it was revealed that an Australian company Baby Bee Hummingbirds, is taking embryos ‘leftover’ from Artificial Reproductive Technologies (ART) such as in-vitro fertilisation and turning them into “keepsake” jewellery for their parents. This action is an absolute travesty and shows contempt for the precious value of human life.
