Anti-discrimination law, marriage & free speech: Interview with ABC’s Steve Austin

Today Brisbane ABC’s Steve Austin interviewed me about my battles with anti-discrimination law. The implications are clear: redefining marriage will only come at the expense of freedom of speech and religion in Australia.

  1. Thank you for giving your time for this public interview Bernard, it is very clear to even the most staid and stay at home hobbit that you are being silenced and punished for exercising your Australian right to freedom of religion and freedom of speech.

    The current laws assist activists (for a very select group of LBGTQI+ related causes) to silence those who criticize their agendas and behaviour, label them as ‘haters’ and punish them in the courts. Gives whole new meaning to ‘due process’.

  2. Bernard, ” I dips me lid”. I wish I had your courage. In the mid nineties I was a Captain in the Reserves I was outrage he at the formation of a Tri service organisation then known as G Force. They were “gay and they were here to stay”. I had seen many changes in policy on homosexuality from “zero tolerance” to “don’t ask don’t be told” since my enlistment in the ARA in 1973.

    G Force members minced their way along in shirtless DCPUs that year in the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

    In my letter of resignation to the Army hierarchy, I said that if homosexuality was being promoted as an alternate normality instead of a tolerated deviancy…..they may “be gay and here to stay….but I was straight, and out the gate.” I added my concerns for School Cadets and the new interpretation of the words of the old song “Kiss me goodnight Sergeant Major”

    I made a terrible error. I quietly fell on my sword in obscurity. Believing all the while, that hundreds of my peers in the Officer Corps would have spontaneously done the same. They did not!

    You at least have shown a better way. I salute you.
