26 Chapel Street Magill.
We acknowledge that we worship on the land of the Kaurna People, the Indigenous peoples of the Adelaide Plains and traditional custodians of this land.
We acknowledge their strong spiritual connection with the land over many centuries and we pray that in the power of God’s spirit we may all work for justice and reconciliation in this nation.
We also recognise and give thanks for all those who have gone before us in this place, whose work and dedication allows us to meet in this space.
Don’t Change Section 18C
A statement by President Stuart McMillan: The Uniting Church in Australia does not support the watering down of existing legal protections in the Federal Racial Discrimination Act.
I reaffirm our Church’s commitment to confront racism wherever it emerges in Australian society.
Every Australian should be able to live in our society free from the threat of racial discrimination and vilification.
Without effective protection, the Uniting Church is most concerned for the individuals subject to discrimination who would remain silent.
The Uniting Church is concerned the proposed changes section 18c of the Act, replacing the words “insult”, “offend” and “humiliate” in section 18C with “harass” could lead to more public expression of overt prejudice.
In a recent submission to the Federal Government the UCA argued for the retention in full of sections 18C and 18D of the Racial Discrimination Act to protect the dignity and rights of vulnerable minority groups in Australia.
As representatives from Indigenous and culturally diverse backgrounds have pointed out, this change is being advocated predominantly by people who have no idea what it’s like to endure racial discrimination in Australia.
I believe the changes proposed by the Federal Government present a serious threat to social cohesion in our multicultural society.
I urge all politicians of good conscience to do the right thing, and refuse to pass the proposed changes to the Racial Discrimination Act
