Description

After no less than 3 venue changes, the far-right extremists from the World Congress of Families found refuge for their hate-fest in the Catch The Fire Ministries church in the outer-suburbs of Melbourne. Catch The Fire known for declaring that abortions caused the Black Saturday bushfires in 2009 that killed 173 people, among other things. Speaking at the event was a whos-who of anti-science bollocks and bigotry, the headline act being Rev. Fred Nile, the only politican that didn't cancel on them due to the extreme backlash. Nile being infamous for decades of homophobia, sexism, transphobia and general hatred.
