Penny Wong lashes out at Christian Lobby

Penny Wong lashes out at Christian Lobby

Federal Senator Penny Wong  has lashed out at the Australian Christian Lobby, for comments it has made about children of same sex couples.

The lobby has compared children of gay couples with the stolen generation, making the comment yesterday in response to Kevin Rudd announcing his support for same sex marriage.

The Lobby says same sex parenting ignores the consequence of robbing children of their biological identity.

Senator Wong says the comments demonstrate just how out of touch the ACL is, and says such bigotry has no place in modern Australia.
