Australian Christian Lobby (ACL) has spoken out after being targeted by LGBT extremists during one of its events. The group was holding an event at a Melbourne hotel, during which some of the speakers would be discussing transsexualism and Australia’s ‘Safe Schools’ programme.
Lyle Shelton, managing director of ACL, described the forceful obstruction of the public as ‘the latest example of intolerant bullying by rainbow political activists.
‘The ACL has no problem with peaceful protest. We live in a democracy and we too support freedom of speech and freedom of expression. But physical force and intimidation should never be part of protest in a civil society. Quite frankly, we are tired of the threats and intimidation. By all means, protest and engage our arguments in a civil manner. But the bullying must stop’.
The group also was recently targeted by what appeared to be a car bomb, while the hotel venue also came under fire for associating with the ACL, receiving harassing phone calls and online threats.
One of the speakers, paediatrician Dr John Whitehall, has more than 50 years’ experience treating children. He warned against the promotion of ‘gender fluidity’, which he described as a ‘dangerous fad’ and a ‘fashion trend fuelled by the ideologues and fuelled by the media’.
