Labor this week launched the biggest attack on parents’ rights in Australia’s history.

If the radical left gets its way, Christian schools are to be forced to employ role models for children who support whacky and harmful LGBTIQA+ ideologies.

Parents and schools have been left vulnerable to relentless unfair public demonisation from LGBTIQA+ political activists and politicians from Labor, the Greens and the Liberals’ left.

Unless they home school, parents will be powerless to protect their kids.

Attorney General Mark Dreyfus yesterday tabled in Parliament Australian Law Reform Commission recommendations to strip religious schools of legal protections which allow them to be free to employ staff who share their ethos.

The government, which commissioned the ALRC report, wants schools to be forced to employ people who are opposed to their views on marriage and the science of gender.

WATCH: Is it now time to consider civil disobedience?

Dreyfus is doing the bidding of same-sex marriage activists who since the law change in 2017 have waged a relentless political campaign against Christian schools.

LGBTIQA+ activists will not tolerate a sector of society teaching children that marriage is between one man and one woman and that gender is binary.

In what can only be seen as a coordinated attack, the Queensland Labor Government recently introduced changes to its Anti-Discrimination Act which also strips schools of their ability to uphold a Christian ethos.

It’s worth reading Pat Byrne and Terri Kelleher’s analysis of this draconian law.

Christian schools are caught in a pincer movement from state and federal Labor, egged on by taxpayer-funded law reforms commissions that are pushing LGBTIQA+ politics.

Queensland Labor’s changes also attack free speech, ensuring that where there is a clash, LGBTIQA+ ideology prevails in law every time.

Again, the Liberal National Party leadership is missing in action, leaving religious schools and individuals to fend for themselves against hostile LGBTIQA+ political activists and a media that is largely in their pocket.

Don’t be fooled by Labor’s rhetoric.

Dreyfus and Prime Minister Anthony Albanese say they are about protecting both LGBTIQA+ rights and the right of schools to create a community of faith.

It is a disingenuous lie.

The ALRC recommendations and the Queensland Government’s changes give no quarter to parents and school communities who want to shield children from radical ideas like gender can be changed with puberty blockers and surgery or that gender diversity no longer matters in marriage.

To teach differently to the new LGBTIQA+ orthodoxy or to create a community which lives out mainstream values is to risk massive legal action in what Christian Schools Australia says will be a lawyers’ picnic.

Risk averse and worried about their assets, many schools will simply compromise with LGBTIQA+ views on marriage and children’s gender rather than protect their children from the harms of the ideology.

In a blistering media release yesterday, the three Christian schools’ groups said the ALRC’s report was a “direct attack on faith and freedom of ­belief in Australia.”

“If these ALRC recommendations are adopted, it means the government can tell Christian schools who we can employ, what we can believe and teach,” Australian Association of Christian Schools executive officer Vanessa Cheng said, adding: “It sets a scary precedent.”

It’s worth reading their media release which can be found here.

CSA Director of Public Policy Mark Spencer said, “Hundreds of thousands of Australian parents choose to send their children to faith-based schools because they value this type of education.

“They enrol their children knowing that our teachers and staff are aligned with our beliefs and that students will be taught according to our beliefs.

“If these recommendations are adopted, parents would lose this right, and the government has no right to remove this choice.”

He said it was important that the government understands that “Christian schools are communities of faith, where Christian teachers and staff engage with students from a faith perspective both inside and outside the classroom and are expected to be available for Christian devotion, prayer and support.

“A staff member who doesn’t share and support our beliefs cannot effectively teach our beliefs or support students according to our beliefs,” Spencer said.

Dreyfus and Albanese say they can accommodate LGBTIQA+ demands and religious freedom, which is clearly a nonsense.

“The government is seeking an enduring solution that strengthens protections for all of us – students, teachers, people of faith,” Dreyfus told Parliament.

This is disingenuous fantasy from an Attorney General who has been well-briefed by Christian legal academics but has chosen to side with LGBTIQA+ political activists.

Dreyfus, Albanese and Steven Miles pretend that Article 18.4 of the United Nations Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (the ICCPR) does not exist, even though Australia is a signatory.

It states:

“The States Par/es to the present Covenant undertake to have respect for the liberty of parents and, when applicable, legal guardians to ensure the religious and moral education of their children in conformity with their own convictions.”

That promise has been conveniently swept aside because it doesn’t suit the left’s agenda.

The LGBTIQA+ political movement will not tolerate a solution which leaves parents and Christian schools free to teach mainstream views on marriage and gender.

But history shows there will always be dissidents when governments try to snuff out Christianity and its love for marriage and family.

This is a time for dissidents to live out a better vision of human flourishing – demonstrating the truth, goodness and beauty of marriage and family.

It is a time to prepare for the prospect that someday soon, peaceful civil disobedience may be required to protect the things that matter.

ACTION: Join the political party that is fighting for the rights of parents and Christian schools.
