The Daily Aus: Christian school apologises for anti-LGBTQ+ contract

Excerpt from the Daily Aus:

A Christian school in Brisbane has issued an “expression of regret” over an anti-LGBTQ+ ‘enrolment contract’.

A 2022 document issued by Citipointe Christian College banned transgender students and described homosexuality as “sinful.”

Not-for-profit organisation the Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) welcomed Citipointe‘s recent statement.

PIAC said it hopes the apology will send a strong message to governments to “remove outdated privileges“ that allow religious schools to discriminate.
