The Coalition government’s religious discrimination bill is the “last piece in our human rights puzzle”, says Liberal Senator Amanda Stoker.

Speaking to Sky News Australia, the Assistant Minister to the Attorney-General rejected claims the bill was “dead on arrival”, describing the proposed legislation was “balanced”.

“I think it delivers really important protections for people of faith in a way that is balanced and doesn’t encroach upon the rights of other people who have attributes protected by other acts,” Ms Stoker said.

“It responds to a real need that has been demonstrated by past cases that have been in the media and elsewhere and it gets the balance right, delivering certainty for everybody, putting the last piece in our human rights puzzle for Australia.

“It would be, I think it would be something really troubling if our Senate weren’t able to come at the idea that people were free to think for themselves, believe what they want and to respectfully act accordingly.”
