Sharia Law

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Ron Hutchins
PO Box 794
BUDERIM QLD 4556

Total Signatures - 1359

Sponsoring Member: Steve Dickson MP

Posting Date: 13/10/2015

Tabled Date: 13/10/2015

Responded By: Hon Yvette D'Ath MP on 12/11/2015

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House that Queensland legislation provides various special exemptions, benefits or protections to places of religious worship. The special exemptions, benefits and protections provided, should not be extended to groups that advocate violence or seek to promote and impose any form, or part of Sharia Law, and who reject Australian Law and the Constitution.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to make legislative changes to the definition of "place of worship" and "religion" to EXCLUDE any group or members of a group which advocate violence or seek to promote and impose any form, or part of Sharia Law, and who reject Australian Law and the Constitution.
