RT @resourcefultype: Horrified that Victorian Health Minister Jill Hennessy wants to concoct the state’s own death drug cocktail. That’s not the business of state government... #vicpol #auspolDecember 01, 2017 at 06:43AM
It was a shock to see several @LiberalAus Senators vote with Labor & the Greens to trample the freedoms of 5 million No voters. Let’s hope the Reps can do better next week. These amendments are in line with the Yes Campaign’s “no consequences” assertion. 01, 2017 at 04:50PM
The shock rejection of freedom of speech, conscience & parents’ rights by several Liberals, Labor & the Greens in the Senate means next week in the Reps is our last chance. Please email your MP today. 01, 2017 at 06:27PM

If @TurnbullMalcolm is right about people not being inhibited for expressing their view on marriage, why was Julian Porteous dragged before a commission? When 🏳️‍🌈 marriage is legislated, will there be more or less cases like this? 03, 2017 at 12:23PM

@GrahamPerrettMP @TurnbullMalcolm That’s actually not true Graham. The case was withdrawn when our highlighting of it began to hurt the same-sex marriage cause. The Commissioner Robin Banks said Porteous had a case to answer.December 04, 2017 at 08:13AM
@GrahamPerrettMP @TurnbullMalcolm Graham you should ask Julian Porteous how he felt about spending 6 months tied up in a legal process for the heinous crime of teaching Catholic views on marriage to Catholics. If the HoR cannot provide free speech protections this week, Australia will have crossed a Rubicon.December 04, 2017 at 08:21AM
@GrahamPerrettMP @TurnbullMalcolm Graham, all of our representatives have always expressed concern about the vulnerability redefining marriage causes for freedom of speech & freedom of religion. The Porteous case is but one of many examples both here & globally.December 04, 2017 at 08:26AM
@GrahamPerrettMP @TurnbullMalcolm Graham, I do believe you are genuine. If the Yes Campaign was saying in good faith that no other Australians’ freedoms would be affected, MPs like you should have no issue supporting amendments to protect free speech, religion, charities, religious schools & parents’ rights.December 04, 2017 at 08:32AM
@GrahamPerrettMP @TurnbullMalcolm If the Parliament fails to provide protections for freedom of speech, conscience, religion, charities & schools, Australia will have crossed a Ribicon. It will be a very different country for all, particularly No voting migrants who fled regimes in the belief Aus was free.December 04, 2017 at 08:35AM
The @DeanSmithWA Bill will result in people being dragged before tribunals & courts. It needs amending to protect free speech & belief. 04, 2017 at 10:43AM
.@billshortenmp if @AustralianLabor believes in religious freedom, why did it Whip Senators last week so that they could not vote for free speech & freedom of religion amendments? A seperate process next year does not guarantee freedom under this Bill.December 04, 2017 at 10:54AM
.@billshortenmp how do you know Muslim & Christian schools, pastors & immans will be free to teach? What have you done to ensure another Julian Porteous case does not occur? Another Mark Allaby, Coopers Beer or Madeline sacking? Freedom rhetoric appears to be just that. Rhetoric.December 04, 2017 at 10:56AM
.@AustralianLabor’s Chris Hayes, speaking now, is right to express concern about the @DeanSmithWA Bill purporting to protect religious freedom. Clearly it does not, except in the most narrow of circumstances.December 04, 2017 at 12:26PM

The T in the LGBTI 🏳️‍🌈 flag means something. Now marriage is redefined, gender will be next. 05, 2017 at 03:56PM
The reality that the Parliament is not going to uphold freedom of speech & conscience is sinking in. My last blog for 2017 is up. 05, 2017 at 05:20PM
So Christian & Muslim schools should stop teaching man-woman marriage, archbishops & imams should just shut up until freedom of speech about marriage is “dealt with separately”? Will it be dealt with? Australia under 🏳️‍🌈 law is a very different place. 05, 2017 at 05:37PM

Meet Edward, who fled war-torn Lebanon 🇱🇧 30 yrs ago. He is so angry that 🏳️‍🌈 marriage means no freedom of speech, he wants to march on @Bowenchris’s office & have Western Sydney secede to become a free nation. He is not kidding. He knows how precious free speech is. 05, 2017 at 09:58PM
White powder sent to our office, a car bomb, death threats, home addresses put on the internet, activists jumping on stages calling for our death, churches graffitied, No voting girl sacked, diversity officers forcing people off Christian boards. But yeah, “Isolated incidents”. 05, 2017 at 10:11PM
The only new form of discrimination the Libs & Nats for Yes (& their Green Labor friends) are creating is against people who wish to continue living out their belief about marriage. 05, 2017 at 10:14PM

.@ShayneNeumannMP there are protections for paid professional clergy at a wedding ceremony & a church hall, but that’s it. Nothing for freedom of speech, nothing for charities, nothing for religious schools. Sorry Shayne, but have to call you out on this. 05, 2017 at 11:27PM
Right. So you would protect children’s rights to know the love of their parents by ensuring same sex married couples did not have access to commercial surrogacy & anonymous sperm donation? 05, 2017 at 11:49PM
As we’ve been saying for years, this is a big problem. 06, 2017 at 04:44AM

Kevin Andrews is demolishing the idea that charities which support man-woman marriage under 🏳️‍🌈 law will not be affected. Quotes @familyfirstnz case. But hey, no consequences.December 07, 2017 at 03:12PM
Given the history of the 🏳️‍🌈 political movement demonising dissent before the law is changed, why to politicians think freedom protections will not be needed after?December 07, 2017 at 03:21PM
Sad to hear the cheers & claps from the gallery acknowledging that they support the erosion of religious liberty & freedom of speech. This has never been about marriage, it is about de-authorising a competing world view.December 07, 2017 at 03:56PM
RT @jamesmacpherson: “THERE could have been greater allowance for religious freedom & conscientious objection but nevertheless .....” Pretty well sums up the reckless attitude of the party that once stood for common sense. #auspol 07, 2017 at 03:56PM
Thanks George for standing up for freedom. Can’t believe what is happening to our country.December 07, 2017 at 04:05PM
Coalition MPs are rightly criticising Labor for not allowing a conscience vote on preserving freedom of conscience under 🏳️‍🌈 law. Sadly, a cohort of Liberal & National MPs are also rejecting freedom amendments. We are in unchartered waters.December 07, 2017 at 04:33PM
The irony of the Parliament today voting down freedom protection amendments is that Rodney Croome, who tried to have a Catholic Archbishop prosecuted for teaching Catholics Catholic teaching on marriage, is sitting in the public gallery. But hey, there’s nothing to fear.December 07, 2017 at 04:37PM
As the Australian Parliament votes down freedom protections, a cake artist who was targeted for his belief on marriage by interstate 🏳️‍🌈 activists (they drove half way across America to his cake shop), is in court. But, hey, no consequences. 07, 2017 at 04:40PM
No wonder people are concerned about free speech under 🏳️‍🌈 law. The @smh seems to support the idea that Porteous should be fined. 07, 2017 at 04:42PM
The gallery just applauded the defeat of an amendment that would have protected charities’ rights to hold a traditional view on marriage. It only took a couple of years after 🏳️‍🌈 marriage for a charity to be attacked for not supporting 🏳️‍🌈 marriage. @familyfirstnzDecember 07, 2017 at 04:46PM

I just want to thank everyone who fought the good fight to preserve the definition of marriage. It takes courage to swim against the stream. This is not the end, it is just the beginning. God bless you all.December 07, 2017 at 08:45PM
I fought this because I believe in free speech, the right of a child to be allowed to know the love of both parents, wherever possible, and the rights of parents not to have their children exposed to radical 🏳️‍🌈 gender & sex ed. All of which causes oppression. 07, 2017 at 10:50PM
Most Coalition MPs & Senators voted for freedom of speech & conscience. Yet @TurnbullMalcolm, who said he believed in freedom of religion more than SSM, was unable to deliver & did not really try. His Winners’ Circle MPs made sure he could not. 07, 2017 at 11:04PM
