The Brisbane City Council’s capitulation to rainbow ideology will be of concern to every parent who does not want to see their children taught by “Safe Schools” that their gender is fluid, Australian Christian Lobby Queensland Director Wendy Francis said today.

The Council’s foray into same-sex marriage and programs against so-called “transphobia” are a far cry from its core business of roads, rates and rubbish.

Ms Francis said most people don’t know what ‘transphobia’ is because they are not afraid of other people but they were concerned that Lord Mayor Cr Graham Quirk’s signing on to these political programs would further embolden the promoters of the so-called “Safe Schools” program.

“Parents all over the nation have been shocked by the so-called Safe Schools program teaching children as young as four through the Gender Fairy story book that their gender is fluid,” Ms Francis said.

“The Queensland Government continues to keep a secret list of schools which have signed on to the Safe Schools agenda to allow boys identifying as girls to use the girls’ toilets at school.

“Parents have not bought into the idea that teachers should be discouraged from using ‘he’ and ‘she’ to describe children at school.”

Ms Francis said the Brisbane City Council’s sign-on to rainbow politics and its agenda to stamp out alleged “transphobia” would cause parents to worry that society was caving in to the idea that they were no longer free to accept the biological gender of their children.

“The Council should stick to providing good roads, collecting our rubbish and keeping our rates low. If the Coalition is elected, the people will have the opportunity through a plebiscite to make their views on the rainbow agenda clear,” Ms Francis said.
