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.

Thanks Tasmania for continuing to care for the most vulnerable members of our community

The Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill was Tasmania's third attempt to introduce euthanasia in the last 10 years.  The bill, which was co-sponsored by Labor MP Lara Giddings and Greens leader Cassy O'Connor proposed to allow the introduction of assisted suicide (aka euthanasia) in certain circumstances.

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.

This Easter will the Australian government call the Persecution of Christians in the Middle East genocide?

Last Sunday two deadly attacks rocked Egypt in two different cities, killing at least 45 Christians. Daesh (ISIS) claimed responsibility for the attacks in what has become an everyday occurrence for thousands of Christians worldwide.

Since December, the attacks by ISIS in Egypt have increased and Christians have been killed in their homes, businesses and places of worship. According to experts, the destabilisation of Egypt has become a new target for ISIS.
