Union Leaders Warn Against Faith-Based Hiring for Religious Schools

Union leaders have warned the government that a religious discrimination bill must not allow faith-based schools to hire staff based on their faith.

And it makes sense, right?

I mean, if faith-based schools are permitted to go around hiring people on the basis of faith, they’ll be faith-based. And that’s a problem because… um …

Hang on. Isn’t the point of a faith-based school, that the staff all share the same faith?

    So basically the religious discrimination bill, if passed, will discriminate against people with a faith. Let’s pray it’s another failure of the incompetent Albo government!

    James Macpherson has succinctly exposed the absolute hypocrisy of the Lobor Government; Labor would never think of inviting a Liberal into their ranks, it would be anathema to them, and yet Labor is seeking to force faith based schools to do what they would never ever do.
    Labor’s innate hatred of Christian schools because of their opposition to Labor’s anti-Christian ideologies surely could not be made more obvious than this!
    Why are so many so blind to Labor’s agenda?
