'Inequality in a dog collar': how the Religious Discrimination Bill hands more power to the powerful : Comments

By Rodney Croome, published 21/10/2019

How do proponents of the Government's appalling Bigots' Charter justify granting special legal privileges to religious people and their beliefs?

What are the "valuable services" doctors would not have to perform? Baby killing?

"The Bill overrides fair work laws by giving every budding workplace bully free rein to treat their colleagues and customers like dirt, so long as they can frame their ill-treatment of others in terms of a "statement of belief".

Evidence please.

It's about time wimps stopped being mollycoddled because they are 'offended'; and how long has 'protection' of LGBTIQ people, racial minorities, single parents been 'traditional'? It's a very new (and dangerous) thing forced on us by Marxists and their tame politicians.

The author's Bigots Charter is enough indicate that the author has nothing new to say.

However, the whole idea of protecting religion is a farce. The intent is to remove further rights to freedom of speech from 'quiet Australians'. Totalitarianism in Australia is not far below the horizon now.

AGREE! This is so wrong and those responsible should pay at the very next election! And those who promote this sort of exclusive discrimination based on the advocation of virtual cults! Need to see their congregations and services dwindle to nothing, including those commercial enterprises that in part-fund this particular brand of cult initiated persecution!

Moreover, it also demonstrates as nothing else can, why we the people and voters in this country remain the only advanced democracy that doesn't have a bill of irrevocable rights and why today's front pages are so heavily redacted as to be unreadable!

When it comes to limiting the freedom to be different? Some of those railed against, God created difference, are little better than equally perverse fascists of 1938 in Germany! There's so much spit flecked hate in so much of this BS!

Listen, in order for one to follow, evidence-free, faith-based belief on faith alone, one is honour bound to also hold open in their mind, the possibility that the opposite could also be true!

Constantine has a lot to answer for in the way he, a pagan sun-worshipper, recrafted and completely made over, original esoteric Christian faith and made it a sty in the eye of God!

Whether or not the gay-bashers, who are at the head of this "religious reformation" understand it or not, there is credible peer-reviewed scientific evidence of a gay gene, not just one, but two for certain and another three probable!

Forgive them father, for they know not what they do!

Hey Rodney Croome,

"But it is really about freedom for powerful pastors and prelates, slyly posing as faux victims, to force their views on the rest of us."

When you mean 'us' you mean homosexuals right?
Sorry but not everyones gay or celebrates it.
- Don't include me in your thinking -

You're no different to them.
You're trying to force your views on us as well, idiot.
You're the one trying to change the status quo and mess with other peoples lives and livlihoods.

And as for Folau, he never signed any contract that implicitly prevented him from stating his own beliefs of social media.
And Rugby Australia should never have expected him too.
- He's entitled to believe whatever he want's get over it -

"All those people of faith who cannot bear their religion of love being invoked to justify hate must unite across denominational boundaries."

Christians aren't trying to justify hate, they like you are just standing up for what they believe in.

Stop acting hysterical.

"Not least, we must reassert the true and original meaning of those values distorted by the "religious freedom" movement."

The bible says 'frown upon homosexuality'

- Accept it and get over it -

They're not the ones trying to change society, you are.
Their bellies are just a stumbling block for your proposed changes.

If you care so much for equality why don't you start with 'Opposing Royalty'?
There can never be 'equality' whilst one group enjoys a lifetime privilege from birth.

If you have an issue with religion, why don't you carve them up into which parts are benevolent and which parts are malevolent; but be sure to do this fairly with ALL religions.

Out of curiosity you don't happen to have a sister named Natalie do you?
Her articles seem a little hysterically driven, like yours.

Being transgender is a mental health disorder. We donít see schools teaching kids that anorexia is normal, or that Body Dysmorphic Disorder is normal, or that Bipolar Disorder is normal, so why on earth should schools focus on transgender issues and try to convince kids that itís normal? And most people who are against this are not overtly religious.
And why should health staff be forced to part in medical procedures they strongly believe is wrong? And thatís not necessarily connected to religion either.
You are trying to force your beliefs on others, with no consideration of their feelings or beliefs, which makes you the bigot.

Nearly 70% of Australian voted for SSM!

Yet we see this rearguard action by RELIGIOUS BIOTS and those troglodytes for who no amount of credible peer-reviewed scientific evidence, will be enough evidence!

I mean and here is the comparison.

Sir Richard Branston of Virgin Airlines tells this true story, where he invited a highly placed official of the flat earth society to a new space fight in one of his low orbit aircraft.

The flat earth official was glued to the porthole!

Upon landing, Sir Richard asked, What do you think now that you've seen the irrefutable evidence with your own eyes?

The official turned and here I paraphrase and said, the graphics were very true to life and the special effects were very believable and walked away leaving a stunned Sir Richard speechless!

This demonstrates a nothing else could, the brainwashed from birth acolytes and devotees of Constantine's cult are incapable of accepting evidence however credible or peer-reviewed that conflicts with their, brainwashed from birth, belief system! INCAPABLE!

The bible was written some 350 years after Christ walked the Earth and Constatine a pagan sun-worshipper effectively decided what books and teaching would be included and what would be left out! Thus we have a book that reflects his belief and the social mores of the day and not necessarily the unedited and unrevised teaching of the Jewish Rabbi, Jesus Christ!

Moreover, one could go to Munich to a museum there to look at the oldest version of the bible know to exist. Then compare it with any modern bible if only to understand, they are two completely different books!

Faith-based belief based on faith alone and not so much as a single shred of credible evidence requires all devotees to hold open in their minds, the possibility of the opposite of what they have been indoctrinated to believe!

Let's have a bill of rights that includes all of us rather than over-privileged, religious bigots driven by false belief!

Big Nana and AC,

Spot on. It's one thing to live and let live on private matters and private lives; it is a totally different matter to teach mental disorders and perversions to children as though they are normal.
