The government is having trouble finalising its proposed Religious Discrimination Bill because it’s bad law, according to experts.
The first version of the bill released last year received universal criticism from religious leaders, charities and LGBTIQ advocates.
The government subsequently made amendments, releasing a second exposure draft late last year.
However, the second version is also facing heavy criticism from a range of diverse groups.
- the Chamber of Commerce and Industry,
- the Australian Medical Association,
- LGBTIQ advocacy groups,
- and sports groups including the NRL, AFL, FFA and Rugby Australia.
The bill also received criticism from employer associations and unions.
