CWN Editor's Note: The bill would repeal exemptions to Australian law on “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.” “Our right to continue to teach Catholic beliefs is threatened by proposals to repeal existing faith-based exemptions for religious schools and institutions,” said Archbishop Peter Comensoli. “These exemptions are important to us because schools want to maintain the capacity to teach a Christian understanding of sexual ethics and marriage according to our faith tradition.”
