Rodney Croome in the Guardian.

Go forth and read the lot.

Another serious concern is the inquiry’s lack of transparency and its alleged bias.

Contrary to the convention with parliamentary inquiries, the Ruddock inquiry is conducting hearings in secret, denying equality advocates the opportunity to address the myth-making of the “religious freedom” lobby.

The allegation of bias comes from pro-equality witness, Suzanne Eastwood, who said of her hearing:

“There was no question that any type of discrimination would be reduced. It was more along the lines of, ‘how will discrimination be even more entrenched than it is now?’”

The panel should have an LGBTI member and the PM should step in to ensure it is transparent and fair.

Just as bad as the inquiry’s flaws is the lacklustre response to the “religious freedom” narrative from some LGBTI community leaders and our natural allies. The Equality Campaign has done too little to generate the public awareness and letter-writing campaign needed to counter the flood of submissions generated by the Australian Christian Lobby.
