LGBTQ Advocates in Malta Push Back Against Religious Opposition to New Equality Bill

The Equality Bill being currently being debated in Malta, a majority Catholic nation, has been facing pushback from religious groups the past few months. These groups seek a “conscientious objection” clause added to the bill that would allow faith-based schools and other institutions to be exempt from the proposed law’s LGBTQ non-discrimination protections. In an opinion piece for Malta Today, Cynthia Chircop and Joe Grima of the Malta LGBTQ Rights Movement argue that a conscientious objection clause is nothing more than a license to discriminate against LGBTQ people, as well as people who are planning on getting divorced.
