Gay marriage vs religious freedoms

Liberal Senator Eric Abetz has slammed the PC brigade for being ‘”exceptionally authoritarian” ahead of a review into religious freedoms.

The inquiry into religious protections, headed by former Liberal frontbencher Philip Ruddock, will get underway today.

Mr Abetz tells Steve Price Australia must protect the right to freedom of speech.

“In a free society, people should not be hauled before government bodies to justify their exercise of free speech and freedom of religion.

“Freedom of speech and freedom of religion are not for governments to give and take. They are God-given rights.”

“The decision’s been made. But that does not mean the minority view should now be silent and told you have to do as the majority likes absolutely.”
