Having effectively removed religious education from Victorian government schools recently, then replacing it almost the next day with compulsory indoctrination of our children to believe that relationships between two men who perform unnatural sex acts with each other should be "respected," the Daniel Andrew's Victorian Government is set to legalise same-sex adoption.
The dismantling of everything good that has any hint of religion is gaining pace under Daniel Andrews. In what has every smell of being the beginnings of a pogrom (a series of coordinated attacks against an ethnic or religious group) here specifically against Christians, Andrews and his team are basically throwing the bath out with the bathwater as they rip out of our society all good Christian influence and replace it with the new religion of adult selfishness, godlessness and sexual immorality, called "secular humanism".
Apart from trampling the rights of an orphaned child to have mother and father figure in their life, the Andrews' Government is also trampling freedom of religion,
This bill is a direct attack on religious freedom in Victoria. The bill also amends the Equal Opportunity Act, eliminating protections for religious freedom and freedom of conscience in relation to adoption.
It would be a shame if Victorian religious adoption agencies who wished to carry out adoptions in line with their ethos and in line with the wishes of relinquishing parents were forced to close. This has already been the case in other parts of the world where similar laws have been passed.
A relinquishing parent should be able to approach CatholicCare and specify that they want their child adopted to “A catholic mum and dad” without being sued for unlawful discrimination under the Equal Opportunity Act.
If the Adoption Act is going to be amended, adequate safeguards for freedom of conscience and religion must be included in the amendments.
In addition, the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 should be amended to ensure that faith-based adoption agencies and parents whose children are being adopted can request that such children are adopted by a mother and father.
Please email your local members of the Victorian Parliament today and ask them to amend the bill.

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.
