Cancel plans to make a speech at ACL National Coference

The Australian Christian lobby hides behind their religion to discriminate against parts of society they believe do not fit well with their interpretation of the bible.

In the last 6 months, the ACL has made over 120 statements condemning equality for LGBTI people. The ACL's leader Jim Wallace in an attempt to assist in turning society against LGBTI people has incorrectly connected homosexuality to paedophiles and compared gay people to Nazis. Wallace also claims that allowing same sex couples to become parents would result in another stolen generation & has encouraged schools to expel gay students.

The Australian Christian Lobby claims to be representative of Australian Christians, however they've spent the vast majority of their air time fighting against LGBTI rights despite the fact that over half of Australian Christians support marriage equality. (According to a galaxy research poll).

By speaking at their national conference, Prime Minister Gillard is implying that she finds their attacks acceptable. Despite claims her office has made to the contrary, speaking at the ACL national conference 2012 further assists in allowing the ACLs attacks and fight against equality to continue.

Prime Minister Gillard, we ask you to pull out from speaking at the Australian Christian Lobby's national conference in 2012.
