Gay Lobby attacks Australian religious schools arguing that teaching Christian marriage is likely to be illegal

Rodney Croome

Rodney Croome’s ongoing attempt to censor children’s access to information about marriage is further evidence of the extreme intolerance of his political agenda to redefine marriage and the family. “Anyone who values the freedom of Australians to believe and publicly speak about our current definition of marriage should be very concerned about attempts to redefine in it legislation,” Australian Christian Lobby Managing Director Lyle Shelton said today.

Mr Croome yesterday issued a media release claiming a Roman Catholic booklet outlining Christian teaching on marriage was likely illegal. He urged people to complain to the human rights commission. “Where have we come to as a society when the political activists for redefining marriage want to use the law to stop children in religious schools from being taught that religion’s teaching? “Why does Mr Croome fear children being taught that it is their basic human right, wherever possible, to have and be allowed to know their mother and father? Maybe even a child’s heart resonates with this truth. “If a family sends their child to a Christian or Islamic school they should not be surprised if their children are taught the faith and morals of the school’s religious identity.

“It is outrageous for Mr Croome to dictate what a private religious school can and cannot say about marriage,” Mr Shelton said.

“It is clear that redefining marriage and family in law is one of the biggest threats to freedom of speech, freedom of conscience and freedom of religion that this country faces.”

  1. So what was all this talk about same-sex marriage not affecting a person’s right to conscience or personal or religious belief? Was it all a lie?

    Does that mean that those people who seek asylum in Australia for their religious and personal beliefs have come here in vain? Will they be persecuted and harrassed by the “gay police” despite surviving torture and the loss of family, homeland and planted in alien culture and society like Australia? Should we say to peoples like the Assyrians, “Go and get your head cut off by ISIS and don’t bother coming to Australia for asylum!“.

    Oh well, the gay lobby which cries poor about how they are treated by others (or more precisely, perceive how others treat them despite reality and the freedoms they do enjoy)….don’t seem to practice what they preach. Hypocrisy? Well if one listens to the gay lobby, certainly not! Emotion and no logic seems to be the order of the day here.
