The City of Stirling says it isn't being heavy handed threatening a church with $1m fine for feeding the poor.

The City of Stirling says they are not being heavy handed with their dealings with a church that is contravening by-laws by feeding underprivileged families. Peter Morrison from the City of Stirling spoke to Paul Murray about conflict.

Blog comments Your Say

  • My father bought a stone fruit orchard in the hills in 1969, about the same time as the one next door was bought. My father died of cancer of the bile duct to the liver one year after the man in the orchard next door died of cancer of the bile duct to the pancrease. All he used to spray was LEBAYCID. My mother drove the tractor and after a while her tongue used to swell up and nearly choke her. Orchardist would spray Lebaycid one day and pick fruit a couple of days later because stone fruit has to be picked on the day!

  • I've read the letter available on the church's facebook site. It does not state "up to" $1m or anything along those lines. It states the church "will be" liable for that penalty unless they cease the named activities. Also, they will be fined $125k for every day that they fail to comply. I would imagine that this would bankrupt the church quite easily. I would like to know if the City of Stirling intends to fine all churches in their city as I'm sure none request all of these permissions - I agree with the church that these are all under the scope of Place of Worship.

  • What an absolute joke this council are engaging in religious discrimination! They should be ashamed of themselves!

  • A lot has been bandied about regarding the $1m fine. In this interview, he said, "UP TO.... $1m." In case anybody has fallen behind in their English, that means any amount FROM $1. I think they are just trying to get media attention to support their political viewpoint. In the ACA show, the pastor said he would consider double-glazing the windows. The member for council just said they've been inviting them to put in applications or make changes for 12 months!! Clearly he hasn't made any attempt to address the neighborhood concerns in the last year. Arrogance!

  • When did feeding the poor and needy not become a part of every church and religion?
