Tell our politicians to scrap the Religious Discrimination Bill.

The Covid-19 pandemic highlights why enacting the Religious Discrimination Bill would be a terrible mistake.

It would make religion a barrier to accessing health care at a time when we should be removing such barriers.

It would divide us according to our religion at a time when we should be uniting to defeat Covid.

It would be a slap in the face to LGBTIQ frontline workers who have given their all to defend the community.

We understand the Bill may be introduced to Parliament as early as August.

Please join us in opposing the Bill by sending the Action Email on this page to our elected representatives.

The Bill is a licence for bigotry

The Religious Discrimination Bill was supposed to prevent discrimination on the basis of religion, but it actually allows discrimination in the name of religion.

If the Bill passes, there will be more discrimination against Australians who traditionally fall foul of traditional religious doctrine, including:

  • People with Disability
  • Women
  • LGBTIQ+ People
  • Racial and Religious Minorities

Find out more about the bill here: The Religious Discrimination Bill.

Your email will go to the Attorney-General, Christian Porter, who is currently consulting on the bill. We will also send your email to other people with the power to help stop this travesty. They include Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, Labor leader, Anthony Albanese, Labor justice spokesperson, Mark Dreyfus, Greens justice spokesperson, Nick McKim, Religious Discrimination Bill Consultation and cross-bench members of both houses of Parliament including Rex Patrick, Jacqui Lambie, Pauline Hanson, Zali Steggall, Helen Haines and Andrew Wilkie.

  • Dear Member of Parliament,

    The Religious Discrimination Bill would allow Australians to be deameaned, disadvantaged and discriminated against if they fall foul of traditional religious dogma.

    The Covid-19 pandemic has illustrated why such discrimination is wrong and why it would be a mistake to pass the Bill.

    It would allow health care workers to refuse services on the basis of religious belief.

    This would erect a barrier to accessing health care, especially for LGBTIQ people, people with disability and women, at a time when we should be removing such barriers.

    The Bill would divide us according to our religion adherence into those who are acceptable and those who are unacceptable.

    This is exactly the opposite message the Government should be sending at a time when we should be uniting to eradicate Covid.

    The Bill would be an insult to LGBTIQ frontline workers who have given so much to defend the community.

    They should be hailed as heroes, not have their rights taken away.

    In the name of a stronger, healthier and more united community, and out of respect to LGBTIQ frontline workers, I implore you to scrap the Religious Discrimination Bill.
