Simon Corbell has announced that he’s going to legislate in response to the crazy hooters in Gungahlin and their crappy anti-muslim leaflets.
“This Bill makes it illegal for a person to publicly incite hatred towards another person, or to publicly incite serious contempt for or ridicule of another person, based on their religion,” said Mr Corbell.
“The bill provides protection from vilification based on religion, and enables people to freely exercise their right to adopt and practise the religion of their choice, without fear of public acts of hatred.”
Now I dislike what those buggers are doing as much as anyone. But I’d rather humiliate the spiteful bigots than martyr them.
And I want to be able to talk about the issues without Simon’s thought police kicking my door down.
So how about you take this to the election Simon and bring it in with a mandate in November if you still think it’s a good idea?
