EQUALITY SUPPORTERS TO PROTEST AUSTRALIAN CHRISTIAN LOBBY IN THEIR HUNDREDS IN MELBOURNE TOMORROW

 

On Tuesday 26 June the Australian Christian Lobby will hold a forum in Melbourne against marriage equality. The proceedings will be addressed by conservative Christian politicians, journalists and academics, and will be broadcast into churches around the country.

 

Equal Love convenor Ali Hogg:

 

“The ACL are on a crusade to promote bigotry. Marriage equality advocates are not going to stand by and let this happen. We will be protesting this event to show that it is equality that has majority support in Australia, not bigotry.”

 

The protest will include pro-equality Christians. Hogg again:

 

“Polls indicate that a clear majority of Christians support equal rights, and many of them will be joining Equal Love to protest this forum. This is not about denigrating religion. It is about protesting against homophobic discrimination and those who defend it.”

 

There will also be a strong message for Julia Gillard at this protest:

 

“It is shameful that the fringe views that will be propagated at this forum are actually government policy. It’s about time Julia Gillard listened to community attitudes – which are clearly in favour of equal rights – rather than ACL bigots when determining the laws which affect the lives of thousands of LGBTI people as well as their friends and families.”
