Forgive me, father…
RELIGIOUS organisations like the Australian Christian Lobby and more broadly the religious right have, by opposing marriage equality, crossed the line from defending Christian rights (which is wholly acceptable) to encroaching on the rights of others.
The government is complicit in this, and is making non-Christians obey religious rules.
Marriage is a legal contract that provides significant financial and legal benefits, and everyone should have access.
Good people go to church, simply assuming that the hard-earned money they put in the collection box goes to those in need.
Instead, it gets funnelled to the ACL who donated $30,000 to the Liberal National Party last year, influencing theocratic policies that affect us all. This is a scam and we’re all paying for it.
There is not one legitimate reason why some people in our society have more rights than others, it’s time to move forward.

Modern life is rubbish
PERTH Modern is a joke.
It has become a wannabe elite school where students get in based on who you know and not what you know — an aloof bunch of snobs who really should not be considered more than anyone else.
Suck it up and do as your told or leave the school.
Up to you.
