We Stand With Ben.
As Christian mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters we are deeply hurt and alarmed at the increasing public displays of hate, vilification and mocking of our Christian faith.
There is no tolerance and love in seeing our religious iconography, religious images and religious symbols attacked for no other reason than pure spite and hate.
These murals are openly advocating for religious hatred, religious hostility and religious incitement against the Christian faith.
No other faith group in Australia today experiences the same level of open and direct incitement and hate.
We don't understand why there is this constant barrage of sustained attacks on Christianity in Australian society today.
We Stand With Ben who was also hurt by these public acts of hate and aggression.
We love this country, we love the free speech it nurtures and welcome an open and tolerant society, that encourages an exchange of ideas.
Free speech is, however, being attacked and abused by these disgraceful murals that incite hate against the Christian community.
As Christians, we don't believe anyone should be attacked for their faith or religious beliefs.
We Stand With Ben who also does not want his faith attacked.
Please sign this petition to make your feelings known and to have Australian society know we do not accept this continued and sustained incitement against the Christian faith or any faith in Australia.
Explanation of why this image is inciting religious hatred:
1) same type of robed clothing used in Christian imagery.
2) same colour clothing
3) use of a halo
4) hands in the same position as that of the Sacred Heart
5) the term "St George" who is a deeply revered Saint in the Christian faith
