Emma Linton started this petition to Scott Morrison (Prime Minister of Australia) and

The Morrison government has introduced a religious discrimination bill that will allow for blatant discrimination against our society's most vulnerable groups:

-Women
-Single Mums 
-LGBTIQ 
-People with a disability
-Ethnically and religiously diverse populations

...all under the guise of religious freedom. 

This discrimination will occur in all elements of our public life including in:
-Medical services
-Schools
-Offices
-Hospitals

Here are some examples of allowable behaviour under this bill:

-SINGLE MOTHERS- A single mother may be told by daycare staff that she is "sinful for denying her child a father" (PIAC)

-ETHNICALLY DIVERSE- Someone of a minority faith may be told by a staff member that they are a “heathen destined for eternal damnation” (PIAC).

-LGBTIQ- Laws against programs promoting conversion therapy for the LGBTIQ population are overridden under this bill. People living with HIV could be told by healthcare providers that the virus is 'punishment from God'.

-A student with a disability may be told by a teacher their disability is a trial imposed by God (PIAC)

-A student at a religious school may be punished for deciding that they no longer believe in that religion

-A woman may be told by a manager that women should submit to their husbands or that women should not be employed outside the home (PIAC)

Our way of life is under threat as a group of religious conservatives and fanatics threaten to persecute women and minority groups. This is not the way of a peaceful, harmonious and secular society.

Act now, before Australia becomes Gilead.
