Liberal senators dig in as divisions over LGBT students widen
27 November 2018
Voted against SSM for religious freedom reasons. Was one of the Liberal senators on the Post Ruddock Senate Inquiry who refused to agree to the protection of LGBT students from discrimination unless the current legal exemptions were replaced by other protections for religious freedom.
Voted very strongly for prioritising “religious freedom” which “They Vote for You” described as being someone who believes that the federal government should protect religious freedoms over other rights and freedoms (for example, by giving religious organisations the right to discriminate). https://theyvoteforyou.org.au/policies/198

Concetta Fierravanti-Wells has become perhaps the Liberal Party’s most vocal spokesperson for conservative multicultural views.
Liberal senator Concetta Fierravanti-Wells was more critical, telling Radio National the bills were “likely to fall far short” of addressing religious institutions’ concerns.
“The bill deals with discrimination on the basis of religious belief only in key areas of public life,” she said. “It does not create a positive right to freedom of religion which is what religious leaders, experts and stakeholders have been calling for.”
