Voice to Parliament

On October 14, Australians will vote on a proposal to change the Constitution permanently by inserting an Indigenous-only Voice to Parliament.

The Prime Minister claimed that this was a “modest proposal”.

However, there is nothing modest about changing the Constitution to permanently divide Australians by race.

Christianity, through Paul of Tarsus, introduced what was to the ancient world a very radical idea – that people were equal regardless of race.


There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

-Galatians 3:28


Our legal and democratic tradition is based on the principle that every person has inherent dignity and worth, and is equal before the law.

A Voice in the Constitution would break this fundamental principle.

As Christians, we are united with all Australians in our goodwill towards Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and our desire to do all we can to help those most in need. But we are not going to help our Indigenous family by separating them.

Or by assuming that just because people are Indigenous they are automatically disadvantaged.

We are one together, not two divided.

Join with others in signing this petition, to call for equality.

Sign the petition against the Divisive Voice

As Christians, we believe that we are all created equal in the image of God.

And that our nation’s legal rulebook should reflect this truth.

As Christians who love this country and our fellow Australians, Indigenous and non-Indigenous alike, we are committed to a nation that is united, that treats every person as equal before the law, and to a nation that is not permanently divided by race.

We are therefore opposed to the divisive proposal to enshrine an Indigenous Voice to Parliament in Australia’s Constitution.

To do so would be an admission that the wrongs of the past can only be reconciled with division.

And an admission that the disadvantages faced by Indigenous Australians can never be addressed by our democracy.

This is despite the fact that currently there are 11 Indigenous parliamentarians and an Indigenous Australians minister in our parliament.

We are voting ‘no’ to the voice of division and saying ‘yes’ to an Australia that is united and a country where every person is equal under the law.

Will you pledge?
