With all due respect it is at the very basis of out democracy that Australians are entitled to voice their religious convictions without fear of retribution of any kind.
Religious orders and people of deep religious views have a long history of contributing to society by building supporting and running hospitals schools hospices and countless other charitable organizations, which save the government millions of dollars every year.
Our sons have fought and died in ars to protect just such freedoms so ALL Australia's citizens can live in real democracy, God willing we won't have it taken away now.
