Support ethical policies, say churches

#1052 for broadcast on 2CH Sydney, 29 March 2015

President of the NSW Council of Churches, the Reverend Dr Ross Clifford, has voiced concern that so-called “forgotten issues,” conveniently sidelined during the recent State election campaign, will be back on the table as early as tomorrow.

Dr Clifford said “Some of the most significant and far-reaching issues have received very little media coverage. There is no doubt that the forgotten issues will be back on the table on Monday morning. On a wide range of issues, it matters who governs NSW and who holds the balance of power.”

“Many NSW voters do not support a radical change to the legal definition of marriage. Alternatives to [traditional marriage] are not part of our culture and heritage,” Dr Clifford said.

Gambling reform was another forgotten issue. He said more could be done to implement effective harm minimisation strategies for gambling, including stronger regulation of gambling advertising and a $1 bet limit for all electronic gaming machines.
