Title Losing Faith | Citipointe controversy Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet Australian Story Media type Radio Duration/Length/Size 32 min Country/Territory Australia Date 31/10/22 Description A group of Brisbane students lit a political firestorm when they pushed back against their former school over a controversial enrolment contract.
Citipointe Christian College asked parents to agree that homosexuality was a sin and stipulated that students enrol under their birth gender.
The reaction to the story was explosive and the contract was quickly withdrawn.
But the shockwaves were felt in Canberra as politicians took to the floor of parliament to argue over religious freedom laws.
So whose rights should prevail? Australian Story has been talking to both sides in this ongoing debate and to the students caught in the crossfire.
