To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

We the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully submit that:

the U.N. Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Intolerance and of Discrimination Based on Religion and Belief

  aDenies the Freedom of Religion guaranteed in the Australian Constitution

  bIs designed to impede or oppose the Biblical life and ministry of the Christian Church

  cIs being introduced as law to bring changes to our nation that were rejected by the people in the last Referendum on the Constitution

We therefore ask the Senate to take all steps to have this Declaration disallowed from the HREOC Act 1986.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
