Do you send your children to a private school or a religious school, hoping that they are protected from the "Safe schools" program? Now, the right of private and religious schools to uphold their values is also under threat.Read more
For the vast majority of religious schools, it was a shock to learn that they might be allowed to remove a student simply because of their sexual orientation—they had never considered that course of action. However, while that particular issue may have been a storm in a teacup, behind the furore of the last week, there are much bigger questions that need to be resolved. Like what it means for a religious community to be able to live in accordance with its deepest convictions and beliefs. That is the question the Ruddock Review was asked to address.

ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr will move to strip religious schools of the legal right to reject gay teachers, reforms he says will go further than the Morrison government promise to better protect gay students.
Mr Barr will tabled a draft bill next Thursday to amend the ACT's discrimination laws to prevent discrimination against students and teachers on the basis of sexuality, gender identity, race, pregnancy or intersex characteristics.

Even though the report of the Ruddock review into religious freedom has not been officially released, leaks of parts of the document by Fairfax media have been generating heated public debate over the past week.
The debate has mainly centred around the issue of whether religious school should have the freedom to expel students based on their sexuality.
Unfortunately, this is a dishonest argument being used by some irresponsible media outlets and politicians to score political points.Read more
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has vowed to change laws to protect religious freedom while assuring voters he will not be a "culture warrior" on divisive social issues, as he sets out his agenda as the new leader of a battered government.
Mr Morrison said new religious freedom laws were needed to safeguard personal liberty in a changing society, while also using an exclusive interview with Fairfax Media to outline his plans on energy, climate change, industrial relations and economic fairness.
PRIME Minister Scott Morrison says there is no need for “gender whisperers” in schools as news emerges of teachers being taught to spot potential transgender students.
Experts claim the move has contributed to a 236 per cent surge in the number of kids wanting to change sex in the past three years.
The training has been conducted by gender identity experts in public and private primary and secondary schools under the guise of professional standards development.
It involves teachers learning to identify key phrases such as “I feel different”, “I’m androgynous” and “I’m born with two spirits”, indicating transgender leanings in students as young as five.
Mr Morrison tweeted this morning that schools should “let kids be kids”.

Bill Shorten has refused to rule out reintroducing the controversial Safe Schools anti-bullying and sex education program should he become prime minister.
Federal Education Minister Simon Birmingham last year ended federal funding for the program, which has been criticised for teaching gender fluidity, and allocated permanent funding to the national schools chaplaincy program in last week’s budget.
There is currently a debate about freedom in Australia.
During the same sex marriage debate last year, it became apparent that our country has no adequate protection for freedom of speech, religious freedom and parental rights. Now that same-sex marriage has been legalised, legislative reform is urgently required to protect Australians who hold and express a traditional view of marriage, and to protect parental rights to withdraw children from the gender and sexual ideological education currently being taught in many Australian schools.

The influential former Coalition leader, one of the longest serving prime minister in Australia, has made a submission to the review into religious freedom run by Philip Ruddock. It was given the task of reviewing the adequacy of Australia's religious freedom provisions in the wake of the legalisation of same-sex marriage.
