Why an anti-conversion therapy Bill in Australia is a huge threat to churches
Sometimes it appears as though, among those which regard themselves as 'progressive' states, there is a rush to the bottom. And at the moment it appears as though the Australian state of Victoria is leading that rush. This week, with scarcely a whimper, the Victorian state parliament passed the first stage of an act which will, as the former deputy prime minister John Anderson poses "the biggest threat to our democratic freedoms in Australia's entire legislative history".

In case readers in the UK, US and other Western countries think that this is just a minor story from a land faraway, let me point out that similar laws are on their way to you. The Scottish government, the UK, the EU and the President-elect of the US, Joe Biden, are all seeking to promote similar legislation – although the push back has been such that it looks as though the UK and Scottish governments are going to have to back ...

Australia is a lawless swamp. It works off of the Brit parliamentary system of majority rule, or mob rule -for the greater good. The gov by definition is the majority, and therefore the rule!

Given the disposition of the masses of the Brit empire to being nannied by lords & barons, Pharma’s lock of Australia gives it the reigns of the nanny control.. The pharma is sacrosanct. Personal liberty, free speech, free press, all cease at the alter of the pharma.

What they can do in China, they can do in Australia. And in Victoria, they did as a test case. The world seemed amazed at the repressive measures implemented on the people of Australia. Truth is, the people are all too willing and are the fiercest defenders of the pharma narrative. It is dangerous to have a dissenting voice.

A heavy pharma controlled media monopoly gives out a barrage of scripted anti-Trump message, truth blacked out. For pharma, liberty is the enemy of the people! Even with AIDS & deaths from vaccines, the media spin and plastic TV celebrity sellouts deliver blind acceptance. If nothing else, the masses always force you there anyway!

More than 370 religious leaders from around the world are calling for a ban on conversion therapy.
The signatories to the declaration represent all the world's major faiths and many are known LGBT advocates.
They include South African cleric Archbishop Desmond Tutu and former Chief Rabbi of Ireland David Rosen.

Other religious figures said a ban could risk criminalising pastors.

A declaration calling for a ban will be launched at a conference sponsored by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) on Wednesday.

The Anglican Bishop of Liverpool, Paul Bayes, and Mary McAleese, the former president of Ireland, are also among those who have signed the declaration.

Not Australia but the UN is saying this should be banned.

Thankyou Frank.
There certainly seems to be an anti-Christ agenda! The thing is, it's happened so fast. I think the whole western world is the same. Little things creep in, then the avalanche begins.
I agree, I liken it to opening up Pandora’s Box. Once that is done it cannot be closed again. Using a more biblical perspective, it happens when we make compromises and then those compromises lead to more compromises and then to what we are seeing today. You are right about the Western world. I believe that the prosperity we have is one of the contributing factors.

Romans 3:8 And why not say, “Let us do evil that good may come”?—as we are slanderously reported and as some affirm that we say. Their condemnation is just.

Galatians 5:9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.

And of course we then have our hyper-Calvinists who simply believe nothing we do matters.

I'm a Victorian - and it's amazing that things have come to this!! I sent emails to our politicians before the vote and received one reply. In the end, not one person voted against the bill! If the bill ends up being voted in when the next House votes, then this is the first time ever (that I know of) for this country to actually have parts of Scripture against the law! Prayer will be illegal in certain situations and a parent cannot talk to their child about their sexuality - unless, of course, it is to encourage anti-God behaviour. We read about these sort of events in Scripture. It looks like they're coming here faster than we could have imagined!
Thanks for the information Marcus! The entire world is going down that path. To me it means the end is getting closer and closer. I don't know much about Australia, but it does sound like they have an anti-Christ agenda.

Come quickly Lord Jesus, come quickly.

May the Lord help the believers there. And here, as the same evil agenda seeks to prevail in the US also. Coke Lord Jesus!

This movement is very dangerous. It will completely override parental objections to a child or young person who wants to “go trans” or choose the LGBTQI lifestyle, (while completely affirming those wolf like parents who support or even push forward these children into this lifestyle), criminalise doctors, nurses, social workers or teachers, as well as any counsellors and other professionals who oppose the LGBTQI and Trasgender lifestyle, even down to counselling anyone how to get out of it. By the way that also means pastors and other Christians who would pray with or preach the gospel to those in that lifestyle who actually want to get out of it. It would also criminalise those who have been in that lifestyle, have left it, renounced it, and are trying to help others to be free of it. Victoria is a state in Australia, where the Premier, Daniel Andrews is an avowed Marxist, who until recently locked his people up in a very severe and strict lockdown for months destroying their businesses and has even done an economic “belt and road” treaty with Communist China!!

Quote from Guardian newspaper today.

"Senior faith leaders from around the world are coming together at an event backed by the UK government to call for an end to the criminalisation of LGBT+ people and a global ban on conversion practices.

More than 370 figures from 35 countries representing 10 religions have signed a historic declaration ahead of a conference on 16 December in a move that will highlight divisions within global religions.

The signatories include Archbishop Desmond Tutu and eight other archbishops, the Catholic former president of Ireland Mary McAleese, more than 60 rabbis, and senior Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus and Buddhists."
