Thank you for standing for Marriage and Religious Freedoms

Last week we saw the passage of the Marriage Amendment (Definition and Religious Freedoms) Bill 2017. This Bill changes the definition of Marriage from between a union of a “man and a woman” to a “union of two people.” Significantly, this Bill passed without any amendments which would have protected freedom of speech and religion for parents, individuals and professional clergy.

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.

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

Good news this week as Tasmanian Politicians voted against proposals to introduce Euthanasia 16 to 8, following a conscience vote in the State's Lower House.   

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.
