MEDIA RELEASE OF THE WILBERFORCE FOUNDATION IN RESPONSE TO THE MEDIA RELEASE OF THE LAW COUNCIL OF
AUSTRALIA DATED 7 SEPTEMBER 2017 ENTITLED "VOTE 'YES' FOR MARRIAGE EQUALITY, 'YES' FOR HUMAN RIGHTS"

Introduction
1. The Wilberforce Foundation is a coalition of lawyers and legal academics committed to the
preservation and advancement of common law values, rights and freedoms.
Its members include members of the Law Council of Australia, including barristers Neville Rochow SC and
Christopher Brohier and solicitor Greg Walsh.
2. The Wilberforce Foundation is very concerned about the processes of approval, the content and the
implications of the Media Release of the Law Council through its president Ms Fiona McLeod.
Whatever opinions Ms McLeod may hold on our marriage laws, they are not shared by all the members of
the Law Council and it was inappropriate for Ms McLeod to distribute her views under the aegis of
the Council without first consulting with the members. Moreover, the statements made do not withstand scrutiny
under the international jurisprudence relied upon.
3. The question whether or not marriage should be re-defined is an important political question on which
Australians now have an opportunity to comment in the current postal poll.

.........................................................................................

17. The Media Release of the Law Council supporting marriage redefinition is misleading and should never have
been issued without consultation with members. Even more concerning is the inaccurate statements of
international law and the omission of key international cases contained within the Media Release.
18. In order to avoid damaging the reputation of the Law Council and the legal profession and misleading the
community regarding the views of the legal profession and the state of international law the Media Release should
be immediately withdrawn.

Radical Taxpayer-funded Program Promoting Homosexuality and Gender Confusion to Children as Young as 11.

As reported in Coober Pedy News Special Edition no. 166, February 2016

There have been media reports last week about the controversial Safe Schools Coalition
Australia (SSCA) program.
It claims to be an "anti-bullying" program, but it is far from safe for all students.


Disturbingly, SSCA material (promoted in nearly 500 schools across Australia) teaches children:
      to imagine (at age 11) that they are 16 and going out with a person of
the same sex that they are "really into";
      to use toilets and change rooms based on the gender kids "feel" they are, regardless of their
actual biology;
      that asking whether a newborn baby is a boy or a girl reinforces a "heteronormative worldview";
      chest binding for girls who feel they are boys (despite potential injury);
      penis tucking for boys who feel they are girls (despite potential injury);
      to advocate for "same-sex marriage" (resulting in bullying of kids who support natural marriage).
It also provides misleading statistics, including the debunked claim that 10% of people
are same-sex attracted.
Our schools are meant to be places of safety and learning, not to promote dangerous, divisive and
age-inappropriate sexual content.
This program should be de-funded immediately.
In recent weeks, Jerome Appleby from the National Office of FamilyVoice Australia,
a Christian voice for family, faith and freedom, was able to present open letters against
the program, signed by more than 14,000 Australians, to then Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss.
FamilyVoice Australia wants to ensure the removal of this dangerous program from all state and
territory education systems.
You can help stop the Safe Schools program by contacting your local
state or territory MPs, via this website:
http://fava.org.au/safeschools
whereby you can send your message to all of them.

Don't Be Fooled: this is what the SAFE SCHOOLS program is REALLY about






Wrong even if it were made Law
