Corbell moves for “tough religious hate laws”

Protection of islam uber alles. Rendering legitimate questioning of Islam illegal, thus aiding and abetting jihad and the Islamization of Australia.

Outlawing “hate?” What next?  Outlawing love?  Who ‘s paying Simon Corbell?

Corbell, a Labor hack, has been involved in the establishment of the Human Rights Act 2004 and the Human Rights Commission, as well as attempts to create legislation recognising civil unions in the ACT, which failed due to federal intervention.

Attorney-General Simon Corbell will introduce a bill in the Legislative Assembly next week in response to the secret campaign by the Concerned Citizens of Canberra against the Gungahlin mosque.

The bill will make it unlawful to publicly incite hatred, contempt or ridicule of a person based on their religion.

The ACT government will propose changes to the territory’s Discrimination Act to make religious vilification illegal.

Attorney-General Simon Corbell will introduce a bill in the Legislative Assembly next week in response to the secret campaign by the Concerned Citizens of Canberra against the Gungahlin mosque.

The bill will make it unlawful to publicly incite hatred, contempt or ridicule of a person based on their religion.

Mr Corbell said the “ongoing incitement” in relation to the mosque, and the distribution of anti-Islamic pamphlets to Canberra homes, had prompted the government to introduce the legislation in the final sitting week of the assembly.

The ACT Law Reform Advisory Council is currently reviewing the territory’s Discrimination Act, but Mr Corbell said he believed more urgent action was necessary.

“We treat that behaviour very seriously,” he said.

“Whilst our preference has been to see that treatment through the review of the Discrimination Act, we’ve decided to bring forward the proposal to make vilification on religious grounds unlawful.”

In June, the Concerned Citizens of Canberra distributed thousands of flyers to north Canberra homes urging residents to oppose the Gungahlin mosque because of its “social impact”, “public interest” and concerns about traffic and noise.

The Canberra Times later revealed the group’s spokesman, Irwin Ross, was a Christian fundamentalist who described himself as a pastor with Olive Tree Ministries.

In more recent weeks, anti-Islamic pamphlets from a NSW Central Coast-based group called Concerned Citizens were mailed to the territory’s MLAs in support of the anti-mosque campaign.

Anti-Islamic comics produced by the US-based Chick Publications were also redistributed in south Canberra just over a week ago.

“That kind of material has no place in a tolerant and diverse community and clearly seeks to vilify people of the Islamic faith and should be considered unlawful in the same way that discrimination on the grounds of race, gender or sexual orientation is unlawful,” Mr Corbell said.

The ACT’s Human Rights Commissioner Helen Watchirs recommended in her review of the Gungahlin mosque flyer that the territory’s Discrimination Act be reformed to include better provisions for discrimination against religious groups.

If the bill is supported by the Assembly, it would bring the ACT into line with Victoria, Queensland and Tasmania, which have passed similar laws.

  1. So let’s get this straight – the government now wants to discriminate against people who discriminate between healthy and aberrant belief systems?

    Can we take this to the anti-discrimination board?

  2. “Urgent action” needed? Because the person who protested against a mosque on planning issues was a Christian? Nowhere on the flyer was religion mentioned as grounds for protest. Yet there have been many such protests before with no calls for urgent new laws. It almost sounds as if the government is discriminating against Christians here; they are being vilified for actions others can take with impunity.
    Muslims can call for our subjugation openly. Will the government dare to put Australia in danger from outraged Muslims both domestic and foreign if it punishes THEM? I doubt it.

  3. Apparantly Simon Corbell wants to rush through these laws so he can take legal action against Islam.
    Simon understands that:
    1) Mohammed in the Quran called Jews and Christians the vilest of creatures
    2) in the Hadith Mohammed calls for a mass slaughter of Jews
    3) in the Hadith Mohammed calls Christians pigs who must be killed.
    I am sure Simon can’t wait to ban the Quran and Hadith because of the vilification of Jews and Christians by Mohammed.

  4. Folks,
    You need to fight Corbell through the system and you need to start now!!! I think that you also need to put thje ALP under the microscope – some of these thigs are just plain dirty. In case you have not realized we are in a war.

  5. This fool needs to be investigated, get some dirt on him. For example follow the money trail for his solar projects ect.
    What is the coward hiding?
    I bet the majority of people in Canbera dont want his thought and speech laws.

  6. “The bill will make it unlawful to publicly incite hatred, contempt or ridicule of a person based on their religion.”

    That means islam will be illegal, right?

    God bless you Aussies!
