Urge your Federal MP and Senators to protect religious freedom and parental rights!

在2019年联邦选举之前我们就曾警告,工党内的一些议员正在推动立法剥夺有信仰背景的学校的权利,并且要在全国范围内实施“安全学校”类型的项目。

然而,当联盟党在选举中意外获胜之后,工党的资深前排议员们纷纷承认宗教信仰自由是决定选举结果的一个关键因素,他们说许多有信仰的人转而反对工党。

另外,工党的一位资深前排议员特别指出一些有宗教信仰背景的学校和慈善机构十分担心他们会因为教导一男一女的婚姻关系而失去政府的拨款。

Before the 2019 Federal Election, we warned that some MPs in the Labor Party were pushing to strip the rights of faith-based schools and implement a “Safe Schools” type program nationwide.

However, following the surprise election win by the Coalition, senior Labor frontbenchers have acknowledged that religious freedom played a key role in the election result, saying many people of faith turned against Labor.

Furthermore, a senior Labor frontbencher has highlighted concerns among some religious schools and charities that they could lose funding because they were teaching a man-woman version of marriage.

早前 Israel Folau被解雇的事件表明我们现在迫切需要保护持守传统婚姻和性别观点的个人和家庭免受歧视。

现在是澳大利亚进行宗教信仰自由立法的最佳时机,也是保护父母有权教导孩子一男一女的婚姻关系和拒绝激进的性别意识形态的最佳时机。

政府新提出的反歧视法变化应该受到谨慎的欢迎,但它们还远远不够。 澳大利亚人的信仰权利应该通过“宗教自由法”来实现,而不仅仅是另一种反歧视法里面的一个豁免条款。

The Israel Folau issue has demonstrated that we urgently need to protect people and families who hold traditional views on marriage and gender from discrimination. 

There’s never been a better opportunity for Australia to legislate for religious freedom, and the rights of parents who want to teach their children the man-woman definition of marriage and reject radical gender ideologies.

The Government’s newly proposed anti-discrimination changes should be cautiously welcomed, but they simply do not go far enough. The rights of Australians of faith should be enshrined through a “Religious Freedom Act” rather simply as another anti-discrimination exemption.

因此,我们必须立即给各选区的联邦政治代表写信,要求他们尽快行动,成立“宗教自由法”来保护我们的权利!

It’s urgent for all of us to write to our federal representatives, asking that these rights be protected as soon as possible in the form of a "Religious Freedom Act"!
