Religious freedom laws won’t shield all cases

A Christian rehabilitation centre for women would not be shielded from a discrimination claim for turning away a biological male who identified as female under the governments draft laws upholding religious freedom.

Australian Christian Lobby managing director Martyn Iles warned that activists were increasingly using dis­crim­ination law and gender iden­tity as a “weapon” to force religious bodies to compromise their beliefs.

In one, a biological male who identifies­ as female threatened a discrimination action after being subjected to a second interview for admission to a Christian women’s residential rehabilitation program.
