Pastoral Letter – Religious Discrimination Bill

Dear siblings, friends and allies,
This week has been a difficult and painful week as the Religious Discrimination Bill was debated and our lives as LGBTQIA+ people and people of faith were challenged, questioned and degraded by media and those elected to represent us in the parliament.

Submission re: Inquiry into Education Legislation Amendment (Parental Rights) Bill 2020

Pitt Street Uniting Church’s submission can be read here.

Uniting Network NSW/ACT’s submission can be read here.

“The Bill seeks to prohibit any discussion of what it calls “gender fluidity” by teachers, school counsellors or chaplains. It would leave trans and other gender diverse young people even more isolated and at risk than is the case now. Pitt Street proposes that the Bill should be withdrawn or rejected by the NSW Parliament.”
