  • The Catholic bishops of Australia have been targeted by an anti-discrimination suit, which charges that a pamphlet distributed by the bishops in defense of marriage was humiliating to homosexuals and transsexuals.; The Anti-Discrimination Commission in the island state of Tasmania has scheduled hearings on a complaint brought by Martine Delaney, a Green Party politician who was born a man but now lives as a woman. Delaney charges that the bishops’ pamphlet, Don’t Mess with Marriage, paid only “lip service” to the rights of homosexuals, and in fact harmed “the wellbeing of same-sex couples and their families across Tasmania.” Archbishop Julian Porteus of Hobart, Tasmania is the primary target of the anti-discrimination complaint. The Australian bishops have said that they had no intention of denigrating the dignity of homosexuals. At the same time, Church leaders have expressed keen concern about the attempt to curb freedom of religious expression.

  • Not surprising. Of all the nations that have fallen to degeneracy, Australia is one of the most spineless, eager to please their PC superiors, nations there is.  Say that hate speech 'should' be free speech, and you'll get angry mobs shouting you down in a couple days.

  • Archbishop Anthony Fisher of Sydney has decried as “astonishing and truly alarming” a move to bring another Australian archbishop before an anti-discrimination commission because of a pamphlet defending marriage. Archbishop Julian Porteous of Hobart is the target of a discrimination complaint filed with a government commission in the state of Tasmania. The complaint is based on the archbishop’s distribution of a pamphlet prepared by the Australian bishops to encourage support for marriage. “Fair-minded readers of the bishops’ statement on marriage would see it was a very carefully worded and indeed compassionate statement, not designed to provoke or hurt anyone,” Archbishop Fisher said. He observed that Australia guarantees freedom of religion, and argued that a bid to punish a prelate for voicing his beliefs would be a violation of that freedom.
