Polwarth and South-West Coast by-elections 31st October
If the ALP are successful in their bid to reintroduce the ‘inherent requirements’ clauses and extend intrusive investigative powers to the Human Rights Commission, this will mean faith based organisations may be forced by the Victorian tribunal to employ staff who are opposed to the mission of the school or organisation. We warned of this in a media statement last year which you can access here. Not only are the ALP eroding religious freedom in this State, The Herald Sun reports that the Victorian government will introduce laws to legalize medicinal marijuana today, and we know that same-sex adoption laws will be next on the agenda.
This is all the more reason to support our courageous Australian Christians’ candidates in these by-elections through your prayers, assistance at Early Voting Centres in Colac or Warrnambool handing out for them or as booth workers on election day 31 October. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you can provide any assistance on the ground and please consider donating to these critical by-election campaign.
The next Federal Election will be held in 2016.
