On March 11 this year West Australians have a clear moral choice. Will you support Labor and the Greens who are both committed to continue to roll out the “Safe Schools” program ensuring “state” indoctrination of our children… which is “is not about bullying (but) about gender and sexual diversity”.

But how to have a voice in society in this background of evil in our midst? How to speak against evil in our world when by association we can also be judged guilty?
