So, what does the ACL say about domestic violence?

by Lyle Shelton

Last week on ABC News 24’s The Drum program, host Julia Baird unleashed on me for ACL’s apparent silence on the issue of domestic violence.

She said she had been through the media releases on our website and found the majority were on the topic of same-sex marriage.

ACL is a small organisation and, unlike those from the gay lobby who work the political system full time in their quest to change the definition of marriage, we are not a single issue organisation.

So amid all this, does this mean we do not care about other important issues like domestic violence? Of course not.
