Australian senator Ian Macdonald has said that people have the right to stop their children from learning about gay parents. Macdonald was chairing a Senate committee examining a bill which would ban religious bodies from discriminating against LGBT+ school students. During a session on Thursday (February 7), he said, “The majority of families… might not want their children to think about children with two dads,”. Macdonald, who has been a Liberal senator for Queensland since 1990, also asked the committee on Wednesday (February 6) for more consideration to be shown to children with straight parents.
