Safe Schools program linked to 'paedophilia advocate'
A Federal Government MP has used parliamentary privilege to accuse the Safe Schools program of being linked to a "paedophilia advocate".
Liberal Nationals MP George Christensen said Professor Gary Dowsett from La Trobe University helped establish the anti-bullying campaign.
Mr Christensen, who has called for the Safe Schools program to be scrapped, quoted a report containing "controversial views" which he said was published by Professor Dowsett in 1982.
The Member for Dawson told Parliament Professor Dowsett was a "longtime advocate of intergenerational sex, otherwise known as paedophilia".
"He argued in that journal that paedophilia should be part of the gay movement, it must be legally recognised and depicts it as a wider sexual liberation.
"I think it would shock many parents to know that a paedophilia advocate was overseeing the organisation that came up with the Safe Schools program.
"Given the shocking information, it's imperative all federal funding for Safe Schools be suspended immediately, pending a full Parliament inquiry."
Mr Christensen and other members of the Coalition backbench have called for a parliamentary inquiry into the Safe Schools program, rejecting a Government-commissioned report as a "joke".
Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.
