    Oh the rank hypocrisy of it. Australia is a primarily Christian country, and this bill allows them to discriminate against those of us who are not, whilst leaving we non-believers open to civil action for discriminating against them. Why anti-discrimination laws cannot be drafted without religious exemptions is beyond me. Why an evangelical prime minister sees the need to circle the Christian wagons has got me fucked. But here we have it, monkey see [what has been done in the States], monkey do [here in oz]

    Religious discrimination bill: what will Australians be allowed to say and do if it passes?

    In another thread where I responded to a post of yours, I already talked about Vice President Mike Pence passing the "Religious Tolerance" law in Indiana when he was governor.

    This basically means that pharmacies can refuse to sell the "Morning after" pill to women, and business can refuse service to members of the LGBTQ community based on moral convictions and religious beliefs.

    I remember a case here in the 90's where a pharmacist refused to stock condom's because he was Catholic. He got taken to court for discrimination and was ordered to stock them. If this law passes, and it appears it will, then it's going to be open slather for religious bigots with the government's blessing. It's a worry if Trump does get impeached given the christian fascist VP you have.

    I don't know if they'll go after condoms, since that's something a man uses, but if any woman decides for herself what she may or may not do with her body...........

    I suppose, in a time of desperation, they might eventually go after condoms, especially if they need more cannon fodder.

    It will definitely impact women more than men. That's the patriarchy for you. They forget that condom's are the first line of defence against STD's. But then thy don't approve of sex outside of marriage and couldn't give a fuck about preventing HIV in the Gay community. It's just a nasty piece of law however you look at it.
