Opening the mouth of hell

Bristow said:

Thank you Scott Morrison – your proposed “Freedom of Religion” Bill will open the gates of Hell in the streets of Australia.

For all of us who are condemned to the underworld we are planning a queer Halloween celebration of our new found Freedom of Speech and Religious Freedoms.

Halloween on Hastings St invites all Mad Fkn Witches, Sodomites, Warlocks, Pagans, Satanists, Atheists and Whores to our 2nd November event. We are going to take back the streets from the State and Local Government sponsored homophobes and mysoginists.

We will be out preaching the gospel of where to obtain abortions, handing out condoms, how to support Voluntary Assisted Dying, where to find brothels and sex shops, how you can stop chaplains from touching our children and many other issues.

It is going to be one big party – more details to follow.

Robin Bristow
