Abstract

The passage of the Change or Suppression (Conversion) Practices Prohibition Act 2021 (Vic) prohibits conversion therapy designed to inhibit or prevent the expression of persons sexual orientation or gender identity. Whilst this has general support as a positive restriction on negative practices it has raised the ire of some church leaders who object to church prayer and other practices being expressly singled out as practices that have the potential to breach restriction in the Act. This paper examines the key issues from a church perspective and asks whether the Act represents a potential threat to the legitimate expression of church authority.
