Places to go, petitions to sign, books & journals to read...



Australian Christian Lobby (ACL) invites you to sign the following petition:

Parents have a right to decide what is best for their children. They have a right to object to their kids being taught their gender is fluid and not based on biology. [T]hey have a right to affirm their child’s biological sex. We urge you to reject the proposed changes to your national platform that would seek to criminalise parents for wanting to affirm their child’s biological sex.

Bernard Gaynor invites you to sign the following petition:

Click here to sign the Anti-Discrimination Board (ADB) petition

Thank you to the more than 5,000 Australians who have signed the petition calling on the NSW Attorney General to hold the Anti-Discrimination Board (ADB) to account.

The ADB is 'Thought Police' central. Because of it: Sonia Kruger is facing a tribunal today for her comments expressing concern about Islamic immigration; a brain-damaged man from Newcastle is facing jail after years of complaints from a single homosexual activist; And I must return to court to fight more complaints from the same activist, despite a High Court ruling in April unanimously upholding a Court of Appeal decision that the ADB had no power to refer any of these complaints against me to the tribunal.
The petition is working! Please sign if you haven’t already.
