He cites free speech as his reason. But this looks a little too much like libel to me. I know next to nothing about Australian laws wrt speech/political signs/propaganda/etc but the signs are flagrantly inaccurate. Is it possible to commit libel against a group of people rather than specific people? Or would this be restricted under some kind of hate speech code?

Any Aussies here to explain this?

I'd also like to know what pro-LGBT groups are putting up as signs/ads in response.

Our society, the most successful multicultural society in the world is built on a foundation of mutual respect.

It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?
