Schools can still expel LGBTQ+ kids. The Religious Discrimination Bill only makes it worse

The Religious Discrimination Bill is back, this time in its third iteration. The Coalition party room unanimously endorsed the bill on Tuesday, but a number of Liberal MPs voiced concerns about what it could mean for LGBTQ+ students and teachers at faith-based schools and universities. Attorney General Michaelia Cash has said no child should be “suspended or expelled from school on the basis of their sexuality or gender identity”, and that discrimination against students is “unacceptable”. However, the bill does nothing to protect LGBTQ+ students and teachers. It allows more, not less, discrimination by religious schools.
