Here’s an interesting insight into how the game of politics is played.
Regarding the Victorian ‘Suppression (Conversion) Bill’ where the MP’s stated the “government (had) also led 21 face-to-face discussions, including with faith groups“ a ministry mate of mine—under a freedom of information request—asked for the list of religious groups the government consulted with in the first and second round of consultations. And this is the response he received…
In the first round held over October-November 2019, nine faith-based groups were consulted:
- Anglican Diocese of Melbourne
- Faith Communities Council of Victoria
- Jewish Community Council of Victoria
- Presbyterian Church of Victoria
