Your voice is making a difference

If nothing else, recent events have shown that together we can be a voice for reason. By emailing your parliamentarians, you have helped us shine a light on the so-called Safe Schools program and what lies behind the campaign to stop the marriage plebiscite.  

In this week's enews we ask you to join us in continuing to speak up. Queenslanders can sign and share our new and urgent "Safe Schools" petition, Tasmanians can sign up to a special parliamentary screening of the anti-pokies Ka-Ching documentary and Victorians have only a short time to sign petitions in support of the Infant Viability Bill.  Thank you for your continued prayers, action and encouragement.

PwC plebiscite figures lack objective credibility, says Australian Christian Lobby

The Australian Christian Lobby has called into question the plebiscite costings released by international accountancy firm PwC because it lacks objectivity.
