Ruddock not satisfied with gay parternships bill
Mr Ruddock said there should be more schools providing such lessons, although he was opposed to the idea being put in place before 2015.
However, he insisted that “we can’t have a child being forced to live in a gay-straight alliance”.
The shadow education minister said: “I’m not prepared to allow schools to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
“As a lifelong opponent of gay and lesbian equality there are a number of things I can sayjarvees.com without offending or making it worse.
“The Australian Human Rights Commission is also very clear that discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people is wrong, and discrimination in the workplace is also wrong, it is illegal and it is unlawful in the huma우리카지노n rights law. That’s one reason why we need a law protecting LGBTIQ Australians.
“One of the reasons why some schools do offer such lessons is because we are concerned by the rising number of youth suicides.”
He said he would not be able to get rid of the law. “We더킹카지노‘ve got to do something to end these tragedies as we have with the death of Peter, Daniel, Robbie and Daniel,” Mr Ruddock said. “If we can remove the ban there would be no reason to stop any schools.
“I’m not comfortable going on the campaign and saying that as a government we will not accept any schools taking part but I do not want to say that that is my way of ending this tragedy.”
