As you may know, our federal parliament has introduced legislation aimed at providing a measure of protection against discrimination for people who choose to follow a particular religion. These protections do not currently exist in federal legislation and states and territory legislation varies considerably.

Our federal parliament has referred its proposed legislation to the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights. The committee has developed an online survey to allow members of the public to fully express their views on the religious discrimination legislative package. The survey will close at 5pm (AEDT), 21 December 2021.

Please Act Now

Vision Christian Media would like to encourage you to take the time to respond to the survey and to have your voice heard.  To respond if you are willing please Click Here.

But now there are reports that certain liberal backbenchers have done a deal with the government to delete section 38,3 which is the Sex Discrimination Act.
