Australian law allows religious schools to reject gay students, PM says
October 10, 2018
(CNN)Prime Minister Scott Morrison said religious schools in Australia are already legally allowed to deny students a place based on their sexual orientation, following criticism of a leaked report that proposes allowing schools to bar them.
Morrison was commenting on the contents of a leaked report on religious freedoms, reigniting debate about what constitutes unlawful discrimination against gay people just months
after Australia’s Parliament voted to legalize same-sex marriage.
Fairfax Media reported Wednesday it had seen contents of the report
, which recommended amendments to a federal law that allows religious schools to discriminate against students “on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity or relationship status.”
