Australia: Liberals Split Over Labor Bid to End Religious Schools’ Ability to Sack Gay Teachers

10/15/2018 | The Guardian

The Morrison government is split on whether to support Labor’s call to amend discrimination law to prevent religious schools firing gay staff. The Liberal deputy leader, Josh Frydenberg, and candidate for Wentworth Dave Sharma backed Labor’s call but Scott Morrison refused to commit to extend his promise to prevent discrimination against students. On Monday Bill Shorten extended Labor’s offer to prevent religious schools expelling gay students by suggesting the government should also protect staff and teachers at risk of discrimination on the basis of gender or sexuality.
