Safe Schools Program Calls for Reviews all Round

Thursday 17th March / presented by Paul Van Lieshout Hunt

The Australian Sex Party, progressive in nature and in name, are calling for an urgent review on the Australian Christian Lobby.

The Lobby, which is a registered charity, states its aim is to ‘advance the cause of religion’.

Sex Party leader and Victorian Upper House member, Fiona Patten, says The Lobby is a major opponent of the Safe Schools program, and marriage equality. As The Australian Christian Lobby are subsidised by the Australian taxpayer,  The Australian Sex Party are calling for a review to consider their status as a charitable organisation.

Fiona Patten is in the studio with Paul Van Lieshout Hunt, to share her thoughts on this and why the Australian Charities and Not-For Profit Commission (ACNC) should be reviewed.

Following this, we look more closely at The Safe Schools Program

Earlier this week UWA academic Bill Louden briefed 30 backbenchers on his review of the program, which concentrates on teaching school-age children about sexual and gender diversity.

Coalition MPs are now calling for a parliamentary inquiry, saying the program should be axed or have funding suspended.

The review – completed in two weeks – is being labelled ‘not comprehensive enough.’
