Another parent speaks out – journalist Karalee Katsambanis
Writing as a parent, Karalee objects to the explicit teaching about sexuality and fluid gender to children in Year 7….
She writes, “the 'All of Us' material, along with other Safe Schools Coalition materials is ironically intolerant of WA's cultural and religious diversity. It fails to provide guidance as to how students are to respect those people who for cultural or religious reasons consider the LGBTI sexual activity unacceptable.
Has anyone thought of the negative impact on children and their families if these discussions or topics are introduced to children in a group environment where a child may not be ready to receive this information? These topics should instead be addressed with children as and when a parent feels that they are ready to understand and process the information….”

George Christensen, LNP Qld, spoke in the House about his concerns, noting that the website directs young people to a range of other websites, where explicit material can be found. He said, “This material is putting children at risk of being sexualised at an early age. If a man exposed a child to these websites, sex clubs, sex shops and online communities on the internet we would call this a paedophile grooming a victim." (article/video)
Legal advice says “Safe Schools” could be a legal minefield for schools & government for decades and beyond.
Child sex abuse claims could inundate governments, schools and teachers personally for decades to come from, among other things, the harm done to children from teaching them that homosexual sex acts are normal and that a child can choose their own gender.
"Schools that promote and instruct students on chest binding, penis tucking and gender dysphoria could be sued decades into the future by students who suffer harm from the advice, according to legal advice."
"Around 500 schools with 330,000 students are signed up to the so-called Safe Schools Coalition Australia which says children must have access to this extreme material."
The Daniel Andrew's Victorian State government has funded this program and has made it compulsory for all government schools.
"The $8 million federally-funded government program could create a legal minefield for the government, schools and teachers who may be vulnerable to litigation.
"Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce joined coalition colleagues in expressing concerns commonly held by many federal and state parliamentarians."
“It is irresponsible for the Government to be funding this ideologically-driven program when government-run schools could be hit by potential litigation claims,” Ms Francis said.
“Legal advice to ACL has warned that State Government’s face potential liability for endorsing and promoting material distributed by the Safe Schools Coalition Australia.
The legal brief states: “The school authority owes a duty of care to its students. The duty is a non-delegable duty. That is, it is not sufficient for a school authority to say that it employed competent teachers. The authority has the legal duty to ensure that reasonable care is taken of the students.”
It goes on to state: “Further the liability of the school is not dependent on whether the relevant incident occurred in school hours or on school premises.”
“There is enough to indicate that school authorities which run the SSCA program should be aware of, and take steps to protect themselves from, the risk of claims being made against them.
“Perhaps more importantly, they should consider whether their pupils are protected from possible harm.
“As with child sexual abuse claims, the school authority may only be notified of claims many years after the relevant events.”
Ms Francis said it was time for Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to heed the advice of his colleagues and ensure the government is protected from a potential legal minefield, but more importantly that children are not damaged by following the advice contained in the program.
“We call on State Parliaments and the Federal Parliament to hold an urgent review into Safe Schools and to remove this harmful material immediately,” Ms Francis said.
“The Commonwealth Government should cancel its contracts funding Safe Schools because it is not safe.
“Who is liable if a child damages themselves or later has surgery they regret?
“A thorough investigation must be undertaken to see how this has slipped into our school system.”
This week Senator Joe Bullock, a Labor Senator from WA, criticised the Safe Schools Coalition program – he said the program was “terrible” and "This program is so narrowly focused on homosexual issues."
He called for the program to be SUSPENDED whilst the government conducts a review.
Article: Safe Schools 'terrible, focused on homosexual issues', Labor senator Joe Bullock says, ABC, 25/2/2016.
Stop the government from teaching this stuff to our children. Close down Safe Schools Coalition and sack the Education Minister for supporting it.
Bill Shorten cannot see anything wrong with teaching children dangerous sex acts or penis tucking and chest binding.
Bill Shorten cannot see anything wrong with teaching children dangerous sex acts and gender confusing bodily harm procedures such as penis tucking and chest binding.
What happened to the Australia our forefathers fought and died for?
The clear attempts by Safe Schools Coalition and the homosexual movement in general, including the media's zeal to normalize homosexual sex acts to our children. (think Play School), will have a devastating impact on young Australians.
They are all basically encouraging Australian children to explore these sexual practices. What will the results be? A boy putting his penis inside another boys anus (designed to excrete human waste) is going to have severe and traumatic consequences for that boy for the rest of his life. That is if he makes it to adult hood. The disgust he will feel from trying such an unnatural, unhealthy act, and the knowledge that another human being knows what he did, and the likelihood of this knowledge becoming public, will probably lead to depression, mental health problems, drug and alcohol abuse and potentially youth suicide.
Normalizing the sex act will in no way remove any of the trauma for these children it will just make the problem more widespread.
Where are all the responsible adults who are supposed to be protecting our children?
"If society's values are shifting in the opposite direction to your own, the mature thing to do is to regroup and figure out a better way to persuade." - David Glasgow is an associate director in the Public Interest Law Center at New York University School of Law.
The anti-traditional marriage worldview side have the benefit of controlling the media but those in favour of defending traditional marriage for the sake of the children, and not normalizing homosexual sex and culture for our children, still need to put forward better arguments to counter them. A good case will still be heard in Australia, even if it is over the backyard fence and not in the media.
A chill wind is blowing over public debate in Australia - Will the pro-homosexual controlled media even allow a free debate in the lead up to the plebiscite?
A chill wind is blowing over public debate and freedoms of speech, religion and conscience in Australia.
"Anglican rector Dr Michael Jensen warns of a "new censorship" that threatens dissent. Lyle Shelton from the Australian Christian Lobby alerts us to the "silence and fear" gripping parts of the community. Marriage campaigner Sophie York wants a "safe haven for discussion" allowing conservatives to speak their mind.
Even libertarians are joining the chorus, with journalist Brendan O'Neill arguing that "shy traditionalists" are "reluctant to express themselves in public" because of a climate of intolerance" created by the homosexual movement..
"Whether the topic is same-sex marriage, transgender rights, immigration, or abortion, one side of the argument is suffocating under the weight of political correctness.
The alleged bullying and silencing is two-fold. First, whenever someone defends traditional values in public, they are labelled as bigoted, misogynistic, racist or transphobic. Second, those who express conservative views face the prospect of legal action for breaching anti-vilification laws. Hence the recent call by the Australian Christian Lobby for an "override" of those laws."
With the media in Australia being so pro-actively pro-homosexual will the public debate really just be a mass propaganda exercise by the media promoting homosexual sex acts as being good, happy and colorful?
Safe Schools same-sex recruiting program: Malcolm Turnbull requests investigation, but by one of the supporters of Safe Schools not by an independent party.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has today requested an investigation into a taxpayer funded program aimed at promoting homosexual sex acts and lifestyle to Australian school students. But the investigation reeks of just trying to sweep the issue under the carpet rather than having any real intent to protect Australian children.
"The Safe Schools education program is set to be reviewed following fierce criticism."
"During a joint coalition party room meeting in Canberra, one MP described the program as having a "Marxist agenda", while others said it should be stripped of its funding.
Liberal MP Andrew Hastie went public and called for the program to be condemned and defunded.
Safe Schools contained highly-sexual content and was more about advancing ideology than helping kids deal with bullying, he told parliament.
Conservative Liberal senator Cory Bernardi labelled the program entirely inappropriate and radical, saying 11-year-olds should not be persuaded into thinking they were sexually attracted to other people.
He plans to present a petition with more than 9400 signatures to the Senate calling on the government to scrap all funding.
"What happened to allowing children to be children, to ... learn how to deal with each other without being indoctrinated into a program most parents simply don't want," he told ABC TV."
"MPs have been agitating against the program, saying it raises sexual issues which are inappropriate for teenagers and young children."
The Safe Schools program is a homosexual indoctrination program dressed up as an anti-bullying program which in reality bullies and intimidates children into becoming pro-homosexual advocates who will then bully anyone else who says anything negative about same-sex sexual practices.
"Senator Bernardi has called on the Government to withdraw funding for the program.
"It's not about gender, it's not about sexuality," he said.
"It makes everyone fall into line with a political agenda.
"Our schools should be places of learning, not indoctrination."
Senator Bernardi said Mr Turnbull has asked Education Minister Simon Birmingham to investigate the issue."
This is not enough though, as our children are at risk from this program. The person being asked to investigate Safe Schools, Simon Birmingham, is a supporter and funder of the program who has been not only very aware of the agenda but has actively protected and supported it.
The fact that the PM can now see the danger of this program, in effect shows that Mr. Birmingham has been derelict in his duty of care to Australia's children as federal Education Minister. He therefore should be stood down immediately while an independent investigation is carried out.
Barnaby Joyce, Deputy Prime Minister and Leader of the Nationals, speak out against the ‘Safe Schools Coalition’ program this week….
FamilyVoice noted, “Barnaby Joyce says Australia’s mums and dads would not be happy with the ‘social entrepreneurship’ of the Safe Schools Coalition program.”
FamilyVoice Media Release: Safe Schools concern grows,
Andrew Bolt gives a good summary of how the media have been compromised and are fully engaged in the coup in Canberra:
"Journalists should know better than anyone how critical it is to have a free debate.
Journalists should be fiercer than anyone in fighting any attempt to muzzle and to censor - especially to muzzle and censor people whose political views challenge the political class.
It is alarming that they are instead the loudest in demanding the muzzles. It is another sign that journalists, especially of the state-funded ABC, are now part of the power elite that is trying to control debate and punish dissent. The mindset is totalitarian. Punitive.
Censorious. Oh, and cowardly, too, given the failure of so many to defend the one freedom they need to defend all the rest.
We saw this starkly when the Gillard Government called an inquiry to punish its media critics and tried to appoint a state-backed media supercop to monitor even blog sites - a supercop backed with laws that could put journalists in jail. Shockingly, media academics were the noisiest in support, and many prominent journalists either endorsed or failed to resist Labor’s plans.
This week ABC 774 presenter Jon Faine defended laws requiring Christians and others from having to get approval from a human rights commissar before putting their arguments in favor of traditional marriage. He even denied that such laws - and the threat of fines and legal costs - had a chilling effect on free speech.
This week, too, Helen Dalley of Sky News reprimanded a student protesting against the use of the law to punish students who’d protested on Facebook about being banned from using university computers reserved for Aboriginal students. Dalley unquestioningly supported “the law of the land” determining “what you can and can’t say” and chided the students who’d been sued, who in almost every case had expressed themselves without abuse: “Perhaps they should think about their language.”
The ABC’s Chris Uhlmann gives another disturbing insight in the crumbling support for free speech and the rise of the totalitarian:
I had decided to tweet into the maelstrom of media rage created by former prime minister Tony Abbott’s decision to fly to the US to address the Alliance Defending Freedom.
It had been prompted by an interview where an American tolerance commissar opined it was appalling, in a democracy, that people opposed to abortion and gay marriage were allowed to air their toxic views.
This progressive truth was so self-evident it went unremarked by the interviewer.
My clear intent was neither to defend Abbott’s world view nor his decision to speak to a cabal of “reactionary” Christians on the hand-grenade topic “the importance of the family”. It was simply to say: “Once upon a time journalists believed in free speech …”
It wasn’t surprising that there was a social media storm in the Twitter teacup because its obsessives are always stewing over something. But that defending free speech could be cast as a crime against tolerance screams something very disturbing about our times.
That some who lit torches with the mob were journalists says a lot about the state of the media. These reporters have appointed themselves the prefects of progressive verities.
That is disturbing because when journalists parade as pointers to moral true north then check your bearings, we have drifted badly off course. Yet I had naively hoped that free speech was one of the few things on which journalists in a democracy could agree: neutral ground in the culture wars. I had long feared this was not the case and so it proved…
Stripped of their fashionable clothes, what’s striking about the tolerance police is how similar these new moralists are to the old. They pursue heretics with an inquisitor’s zeal, blinded by the righteousness of their cause.
Dangerous times. How is it that the Liberal Party - note the word liberal” in the title - has done absolutely nothing to extend free speech and protest at its limitations?
Gerard Henderson on yet another example of the ABC’s bias and its punishing of dissenters. When the ABC is so huge and so biased it is a menace to debate and free inquiry. Add to this the laws used to stifle alternative views - to the cheers of many such journalists - and we are faced with a serious threat and a monstrous insult to our intelligence.
The Rainbow SS (same-sex) philosophy connection to Marxism explains everything. But it deceives and leads to slavery not freedom.
‘Safe Schools’ – and Marxist philosophy – the connection
The Australian recently reported that Roz Ward, who set up the Safe Schools Coalition, gave a talk to a Marxism conference in Melbourne in 2015.
Pat Byrne explores this further…
He writes, “To the Marxism Conference, Roz Ward gave a Marxist analysis of how the ruling capitalist class imposed conventional notions of male and female, sex, marriage and natural family on society to “break the spirits of ordinary people”.”
Roz Ward said, “To smooth the operation of capitalism the ruling class has benefited, and continues to benefit, from oppressing our bodies, our relationships, sexuality and gender identities alongside sexism, homophobia and transphobia. Both serve to break the spirits of ordinary people, to consume our thoughts, to make us accept the status quo and for us to keep living or aspiring to live, or feel like we should live, in small social units and families where we must reproduce and take responsibility for those people in those units.”
Roz Ward advocated sexual liberation, saying, “Marxism offers both the hope and the strategy needed to create a world where human sexuality, gender and how we relate to our bodies can blossom in extraordinarily new and amazing ways that we can only try to imagine today, because Marxism has a theory of social change.”
Pat writes, “Echoing this classical Marxist doctrine, Ward paraphrases gay academic Dennis Altman, saying that “the homosexual cannot win liberation without a general sexual liberation.”
Article: Safer schools or a radical Marxist sexual revolution?, Pat Byrne, Online Opinion, 19/2/2016.
Safe Schools Coalition is bullying our children to be pro-homosexual advocates and to then bully anyone who thinks homosexual sex acts should not be promoted to our youth by changing the marriage laws.
Australian Education Minister Simon Birmingham cannot see anything particularly wrong with the homosexual propaganda organization Safe Schools Coalition, which the government have funded to the tune of $8m. Duty of care Mr. Birmingham! Protecting children from sexual predators Mr. Birmingham! Keeping political agendas out of schools Mr. Birmingham! Inappropriate attempts to indoctrinate our nations children during a national debate about the homosexual assault of our society! Maybe you are the wrong person for the job.
As one concerned citizen put it: "Hey wait a minute, I thought the Safe Schools Coalition was simply about bullying! That is what the politicians, mainstream media and our social elites keep telling us. I wish it were. I was bullied as a child at school, as were millions of other kids. We were bullied and picked on because we were too fat or too skinny. Too short or too tall. Too ugly or too good looking. Too rich or too poor. Too cool or too uncool. Too smart or too stupid.
There are a zillion reasons why folks get bullied. So does the SSC deal with all these matters in detail in their programs and resources? Um no. There is only one topic that gets all the attention: homosexuality. But don’t take my word for it; simply read their documents for yourself. Consider the SSC “Resources” page. It is a real eye opener:
Please go to this page and have a close look. There are no less than 34 different resources you can download. Yep, 34 of them. And how many of them have anything to do with bullying in general? Not one. Yes, you read that right – not one. Every single one of these 34 resources is all about pro-homosexual indoctrination and propaganda."
Email Mr. Birmingham and ask him to resign for failing to protect our children.
Senator Joanna Lindgren said the following in her newsletter sent out today:
Please email her and thank her for standing up for our nation's children. She puts the men in Canberra to shame. Email her at: email@example.com
The following is from her release today:
"I will be moving a motion in the Senate in the very near future calling on schools to review their participation in the Safe Schools Coalition Australia Program. I have reviewed aspects of the program having been contacted by a number of concerned constituents about the suitability of the program for schools.
I have particular concerns with the curriculum and resources as I believe they are not school aged appropriate; particularly in primary school.
As a former teacher I know that bullying and harassment should never be tolerated in any forum and that schools should provide a safe and supportive learning environment for all students.
Whilst the Safe Schools Coalition Australia Program is an ‘opt in’ program and run at arm’s length of government, schools participating in the Safe Schools Coalition program should carefully consider the suitability of resources, including web based resources, for all their students. I believe that parents should be provided with in-depth information about the program to allow them to make an informed decision regarding their child’s participation; and that schools respect their decision when implementing the program.
To keep up to date with what is happening don't forget to visit my website and follow me on social media.
LNP Senator for Queensland"
Here is a thought that will get the “PC Thought Police” fired up and at least earning their big pay packets:
“There are only two genders: male and female.” People were not originally and have never been asexual or changeable robots. There are just two genders.
Here is another dangerous thought: “The two genders are radically different, emotionally, physically and psychologically.” These differences are to be celebrated. The remarkable way in which a man and a woman “complement” each other in so many ways is incredible. The way they, together, produce new human life, either a boy or a girl (only) is incredible. These differences and the complementarity of a man and a woman is to be celebrated. That is why weddings are such special occasions.
So, children, when some convincing adult stranger comes into your classroom and tries to tell you there are lots of other “genders,” and says that all sorts of weird sounding behavior between people of the same gender should be “respected,” just politely nod but remember the truth that there is and always will be only two genders, no matter what the convincing adult says, and that marriage is what unites these two genders to become one, which is good for both of them in many ways, and was good for you too, because the union of the two genders is how you came to be.
Every authoritarian enemy of freedom has the Church as one of its early targets. Non-Christians be warned: they never stop at just the Church. Everyone's freedom is at stake.
Christian Colleges & Gender Identity. The Next Assault on Religious Freedom?
By John Stonestreet 18th Feb 2016
According to some, including a few folks in government, religious liberty is code for religious bigotry.
You’ve probably heard of Title IX, the federal law signed by President Nixon in 1972 “that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity.” Title IX is probably best known for its effect on women’s athletics by mandating equitable treatment with men’s teams.
Of course, discrimination against women and girls on the basis of their sex is a bad thing, and so Title IX—though not a perfect piece of legislation—has done a lot of good. But the federal government has a habit of extending legislation beyond its intended reach, and that’s what is happening right now with Title IX.
The Department of Education, under pressure from LGBT groups such as the Human Rights Campaign and some legislators, has agreed to create a public, searchable database of Christian colleges and universities that obtained Title IX waivers based on claims of religious freedom.
These exemptions—which, for example, allow religious schools to provide male-only or female-only dorms—have been granted routinely since the law’s passage, but all that may be beginning to change. According to a report in WORLD magazine, the HRC has “accused Christian institutions of ‘hidden discrimination’ for obtaining Title IX waivers.”
Meanwhile, Sen. Ron Wyden and several other Democratic senators have asked the department to increase transparency around the waivers because, they charge, the waivers “allow for discrimination under the guise of religious liberty.”
To what are these senators referring and why is the nation’s largest LGBT group getting involved? Well back in 2014, the Department of Education quietly expanded its interpretation of the word “sex” to include “gender identity.” So, absent a religious exemption, schools that want to honor Christ in their teaching and lifestyle standards could be vulnerable to charges of Title IX discrimination if, for example, they tried to deny a male who “identifies as a female” from living in a women’s dorm, or participating on a female sports team, or using a woman’s public restroom.
Now perhaps I’m being suspicious, but it seems that a public, searchable database like this really has no real purpose other than to “out” those institutions that wish to stand for biblical values. The database would allow people who disagree with their Christian mission to target these colleges for harassment and possible legal challenge. With WORLD, I wonder whether this database is basically just “a hit list of Christian colleges.”
Efforts like this undermine our First Amendment rights to freedom of religion, association, and speech—much like we’ve seen in the ongoing efforts to punish and shut down Christian business owners who refuse to participate in so-called “same-sex” marriages. We’ve also seen this Administration attempt to force religious institutions, such as the Little Sisters of the Poor and Wheaton College, to provide health insurance in ways that violate their sincerely held religious beliefs.
The Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, and others, are speaking out. “Institutions that have received an exemption are simply following the law,” the CCCU told WORLD. “What is unfortunate in this recent development is not that the list of schools that received an exemption is being made public, rather that the exemptions are being portrayed as something nefarious.”
What’s really nefarious in my book is the attempt to intimidate religious schools for doing nothing other than living up to their own beliefs. As one critic has said, it’s shameful.
There is no question that our liberties are under intentional, systematic assault. The question is how the Church and those who value our freedoms will respond: will we defend them? And will we model Christ as we do?
The Turnbull government should be called upon to immediately close down the Safe Schools Coalition for trying to indoctrinate Australia's children to believe the homosexual propaganda.. At the very least it should be shut down pending a full investigation by government welfare agencies responsible for the protection of our children.
Email the Education Minister Simon Birmingham today: Minister@education.gov.au
"Safe Schools material endorses unsafe practices and teaches rainbow ideology to children as young as 11..
“Disturbing reports have come out in the last week which have exposed the graphic sexualised nature of the Safe Schools material and the Minus 18 website it promotes to kids,”
Federal Education Minister Simon Birmingham has defended the objectives of the program saying it has “perfectly reasonable objectives”. Yet, “It is hard to see what part of the program might be reasonable.
Does he find it reasonable to teach children that anal sex between men is good, normal and healthy? Does this sort of "education" benefit our society in any way?
“Is it reasonable for 11-year-olds to role playing in class where they are imagining that they are 16 and in a same-sex relationship?”
"Providing instructions for girls on chest-binding and boys on genital tucking or having boys in girls’ toilets has nothing to do with a bullying program. “There are already many good bullying programs in place that deal with bullying in all its forms.
“We call on schools to remove this material immediately until at least a thorough investigation is undertaken and the content is fully explained to parents,” Ms Francis said.
“it is not enough to say that the schools have autonomy in using a program the Minister is funding when it contains harmful information. The Government still has a responsibility to ensure the wellbeing of children in the school system.

The rainbow coup. Will this intolerant political ideological movement stop at marriage? What really lies at the end of this rainbow?
In the movie Saving Mr. Banks, Walt Disney is portrayed as conducting his smoking habit in private, "So he didn't encourage the children to take up his bad habit."
We need more adults who are considerate rather than selfish in our society today. Instead we have a situation where selfish minority groups and a complicit media are forcing their bad habits (homosexual sex acts and the drugs/alcohol culture which goes with it) on our society and intentionally trying to encourage children and others to take it up.
They want to change our marriage laws thinking this will "normalize" homosexual sex acts and culture in our society. They think that by doing so homosexuals will feel more "normal" when they practice these sex acts themselves. However, normalizing immoral behavior cannot fully appease a human conscience. Even if the whole mob join in, their is no appeasing a guilty conscience just because so many others are doing it.
Only restraint of harmful behavior creates a good society. Encouraging the masses to embrace bad behavior destroys good society. One of the legitimate roles of government is to restrain behavior which will be harmful to a society. We suddenly find ourselves in Australia with a situation where such behavior is not only not being restrained but it is being fully encouraged and even taught to our nations school children under the deception called "Safe Schools Coalition" funded by government.
We have a complicit media joining in the mob like rampage imposing sexual immorality on everyone, and we have a weak prime minister and politicians who seem to be surrendering to the juggernaut out of fear.
Saving Mr. Banks
Ian McFarlane, federal MP for Groom announced today he will leave parliament. Was he forced out because he did not support the homosexual juggernaut?
Another homosexual activist is seeking to join Malcolm Turnbull's pro-homosexual team as the "rainbow coup" rolls on. Tim Wilson, an open advocate and activist for the rainbow political movement, has declared he is seeking to join the growing Liberal Party infiltration in the desperate bid to avoid a plebiscite.
Malcolm Turnbull continues the homosexual political coup in Canberra by appointing another pro-homosexual advocate as a member of cabinet. Nationals MP for Sale in Victoria Darren Chester is an active supporter of normalizing homosexual sex acts in our society by changing our marriage laws. He has courted controversy in his stance and has just been rewarded on the basis that he is a pro-homosexual therefore he will be supported by the media.
"Rainbow ideology making schools unsafe
WARNING: Contains graphic content
With political activists relentlessly pursing change to the definition of marriage, many ordinary Australians are wondering what is on the other side of the rainbow flag.
But given the momentum rainbow ideology has amongst cultural, political and media elites, activists are already reaching into our daily lives on the assumption we are all on board.
Our children are now the soft target chosen by the LGBTI activists, who in the name of anti-bullying, are rolling out “Safe Schools” across the nation.
Don’t let the name fool you. There’s nothing safe about the “Safe Schools Coalition”.
The Safe Schools-promoted Minus 18 website goes on to affirm radical sexual experimentation and plays down the significance of sexually transmitted infections.
“So I done f…..d up. Literally. One Grindr hook-up gone wrong and that’s how I got myself some gonorrhoea.” It goes on to say “I’ve had friends who count their first time giving oral as their virginity” and “penis-in-vagina sex is not the only sex, and certainly not the ‘ultimate’ sex.”
But this is where rainbow politics have taken our schools.
One woman who bravely spoke out against this incursion is Cella White, a mother of four from Frankston in Victoria.
She’s made news this week after the Herald Sun reported that she has withdrawn her children from the local government high school.
Frankston High, just like every school in Victoria, is being forced by the Andrews Government to sign up to a radical program called the “Safe Schools Coalition”.
Readers of Cella White’s story were overwhelming supportive of her move and condemned the encroachment of rainbow politics into the classroom. Of the 550-odd online comments relating to the story, almost all said the LGBTI activists and the Government had gone too far.
When Cella White visited the Education Department to voice her concerns she was greeted by a giant rainbow flag rolled out of the door and onto the public footpath on Melbourne’s Treasury Place, like red carpet.
Since when do governments display on government buildings and in public walkways the symbols of political movements?
The Victorian Government has made the programme compulsory.
Email your state MP now and ask that this radical, ideologically driven programme be replaced with a more balanced approach to combat bullying.
Our schools should be safe for all students."
There is a current petition from homosexual lobby groups demanding that Malcolm Turnbull pull the plug on the promised plebiscite. He seems to want to and may be looking for the right time and opportunity to do so. They have over 20,000 petitioners.
Contact Malcolm Turnbull requesting that he guarantee that the people will have a say in a plebiscite and maybe ask if it could be done as a part of the next election? While you are at it ask Malcolm to stop the roll out of the homosexual movements rainbow symbol on government buildings. We, the people haven't had our say yet about this attempted ideological coup.
We the People Want a Plebiscite on Marriage
LET THE PEOPLE DECIDE.
There is undue influence, pressure and intimidation being placed upon our elected politicians by forceful, well-funded, homosexual lobby groups, and the pro-homosexual media, to avoid a plebiscite on marriage and sneak through a parliamentary vote without the people having a say.
Our politicians are being harassed by an unrelenting media and are being targeted and punished for not agreeing with the homosexual agenda. Politicians are too frightened to speak honestly about this issue.
Because of this intimidation Australian politicians are unable to resolve this bitterly divisive issue and stand up for Australian children.
The media has taken sides, and as well as manipulating politicians, has locked out of the public debate those in favour of protecting traditional marriage and protecting children from this attempt to normalize homosexual sex acts in our society.
The Australian people are too frightened to even discuss this issue with their friends for fear of being bullied. This matter must therefore be dealt with by the people, without this intimidation, in the privacy of the ballot box at a plebiscite. This will relieve our political leaders of this burden and pressure and free them up to govern our nation unhindered.
We, the people, do not want to wake up and find that a stacked party room or parliament with compromised, pressured, exhausted and grossly intimidated politicians in Canberra have taken the power out of the hands of the people.
We, the people, hereby respectfully request that the promised plebiscite on marriage be guaranteed by the government and the opposition, ensuring the question be put to the Australian people and not be dealt with by politicians.
We still live in a democracy - LET THE PEOPLE DECIDE.
There is “a time to be silent, and a time to speak”. (Ecclesiastes 3:7). Now is the time to speak, so please speak up and defend children, truth and freedom.
