australia politics live update scott morrison to introduce religious discrimination bill to parliament

Sumary of Australia politics live update: Scott Morrison to introduce religious discrimination bill to parliament:

  • But the reason it is going to a senate committee is because not everyone is happy with the bill, within the coalition’s own ranks Here’s why Trent Zimmerman wants the sex discrimination act loopholes dealt with now.
  • Will it still be the case, under the Religious Discrimination Bill?
  • Stoker: The Religious Discrimination Bill covers slightly different territory.
  • It provides that it is unlawful to discriminate on the grounds of religious belief or activity or indeed someone’s non-belief in areas like employment, education, provision of goods and services.
  • Stoker: Look, we’ve made the commitment both to bring in the Religious Discrimination Act, and to deal with those provisions in the Sex Discrimination Act.
  • We also took the Religious Discrimination Act to an election, as you’ll recall.
  • We need to make sure that people from a religious perspective, or indeed a right not to believe perspective, don’t face discrimination.
  • @ScottMorrisonMP on changing laws allowing schools to expel gay students: Religious schools don’t want to expel students on this basis.
