While MP pushes for change, poll shows most people oppose laws allowing school anti-gay bias

Two-thirds of NSW people are opposed to laws allowing private schools to discriminate against or expel students on the basis of their sexuality, a phone poll has revealed.

But groups representing many private and religious schools warn that if a bill to change the law is successful, it could threaten their religious freedom and leave them open to litigation for operating the schools in accordance with their faith.
