Our last chance to protect our Christian schools and churches!

The Victorian Government wants to interfere with who Christian schools and churches employ …

… we need to tell them to stop.

Hands off our schools and churches!

The Victorian Government has rammed the Equal Opportunity (Religious Exceptions) Amendment Bill 2021 through the Legislative Assembly, using its numbers to limit debate.

This Bill now goes to the Legislative Council in the final sitting week for the year, our last chance to stop this Bill which goes far beyond any other State or Territory in imposing constraints on Christian schools and other religious bodies, including churches, seeking to employ staff who share their beliefs.

The Bill seeks to force schools to employ those who pay lip service to belief but act in a clearly inconsistent manner.

In the Government’s own words, the changes will affect the employment of ‘priests, ministers, rabbis, imams or other members of a religious order’ – going to the heart of faith communities.
