“As advocates and queer people of faith, we’re just getting started. Now, I ask all of Victoria, and particularly our allies, to join us.” Asha

On February 9, 2021, Mamamia published Asha’s article Gender conversion ‘therapy’ is a public health crisis. I know this because I lived it.

Rev. Ron Rosinsky, Coburg Uniting Church Minister, passionately endorsed Asha’s words in this Facebook post.

“Only seven passages in all the Bible speak against homosexuality – none of them attributed to Jesus,” Rev. Ron wrote.

“Are we to appropriate this ancient hatred?”

On Thursday evening, 5 February, 2021, the Victorian Parliament voted that we will not:

“Those found to have engaged in conversion practices that result in serious injury will face penalties of up to 10 years’ jail or up to $10,000 in fines.” Victoria bans gay conversion practices after 12-hour debate, The Guardian

Coburg Uniting Church joins our LGBTQIA+ siblings as we all continue to advocate for equality.

“Let’s end prejudice and homophobia masquerading as Christianity.” Rev. Ron.
