Someone is Lying About Kevin Andrews


UPDATE: It’s been reported that Andrews has pulled out of the event because it’s now being hosted by Danny Naliah’s Catch The Fire Ministries (scroll down for details), because he thinks they’re ‘too extreme’!  Oh the irony!


Kevin Andrews, Social Services Minister,  will open the World Congress of Families Melbourne event on Saturday. He claims that he is doing this despite the fact that he doesn’t entirely agree with them. So why was he chosen to lead the event?

Could it be because he is actually an officer of the World Congress of Families? They certainly seem to think so. This is from their publicity

This is confirmed on the WCF website, though there he’s given the even more suggestive title of Ambassador. So he’s not just their International Secretary, he’s also their International Ambassador: not just an officer, but also a spokesperson.

    Now you tell me: why would an organisation even have as a member, let alone choose as its secretary, ambassador and opening speaker at its conference, and award him the title of Natural Family Man of the Year, a man who is a less than wholehearted supporter?

    Someone is telling porkies. I wonder who?

About the author

He presented news and current affairs on JOY 94.9 FM Melbourne for more than ten years. "Doug is revered, feared and reviled in equal quantities, at times dividing people with his journalistic wrath. Yet there is no doubt this grandpa-esque bear keeps everyone abreast of anything and everything LGBT across the globe." (Daniel Witthaus, "Beyond Priscilla", Clouds of Magellan, Melbourne, 2014)
