Empowering young Australians to be a clear Christian voice
An excellent letter by Warwick Marsh of the Dads 4 Kids Fatherhood Foundation:
Almost every Human Rights Anti-Discrimination Bill for the last four decades has seen a reversal of Christian freedom and the ability to exercise and practice our faith in good conscience. This Bill is no different.
Jesus Christ said “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another as I have loved you”. We cannot legislate love. We can hope for love, expect love but it can never be demanded because then it is not love. All the legislation and statutes in the world cannot guarantee love; only the blood of Jesus Christ, which is forgiveness in action and persuades us to forgive and not be offended. For this reason Australia’s democratic system is regarded as one of the best in the world because it is built on the Judeo-Christian foundations of faith, hope and love.
Australia’s constitution, written in 1901 says, “Humbly relying on the blessings of almighty God”. Inherent in Biblical law and also in common law is the foundational thought that a person is innocent until proven guilty. This new bill, brought into law, will reverse that time honoured and proven concept, one of the foundations of our freedom. The new Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Bill 2012 is fallacious for several reasons:
