Liberal MPs Katie Allen, Bridget Archer, Trent Zimmerman and Dave Sharma doubled their stance after Morrison said there was no evidence that gay students were expelled from religious schools because of their sexuality, and said the problems would be engage in a re-elected coalition government. “Consistently”, giving priority to the religious bill.
“We’ve had this conversation for about the last four years, and each time it’s been presented that students are apparently expelled every day, every week, or every year,” Morrison said at a Liberal Party rally in Melbourne today. “There is no evidence of this at all. There is no one. “
Allen said her stance remained unchanged, adding: “I will always protect gay and trance students.”
