The Canberra Liberals' newest candidate described Indigenous Welcome to Country ceremonies as "animistic practices … to be condemned" and ACT Policing as a force influenced by a homosexual agenda, according to submissions he made to a federal inquiry in 2018.

On Sunday, Peter McKay was announced as the latest Liberal Party candidate for the inner-city seat of Kurrajong in the upcoming ACT election.

In his announcement, ACT Liberal leader Alistair Coe said he was "pleased to have such a passionate advocate on our Kurrajong Liberal team".

But a 2018 submission by Mr McKay to a federal inquiry into religious freedoms, known as the "Ruddock review", made several comments that would appear out of step with the Canberra Liberals.

In his submission, Mr McKay wrote that Canberra had in recent years "been subjected to religious terrorism", noting a 2016 incident where a van exploded outside the Australian Christian Lobby headquarters in Canberra.

"The man that used six gas bottles to bomb a secluded Christian organisation in Canberra had worked as an advocate in the USA yet within 24 hours of the attack the ACT Police influenced by the homosexual Chief Minister and the strong lesbian influence in the ACT Police (yes, I could provide some names) dismissed the attack on religious thought by describing the cause as a mental health issue," Mr McKay wrote.

Mr McKay also said that debate had been supressed on "the consequences of accepting or rejecting homosexuality regarding demographic effect, economic growth, health, increased government support for old age support, the emotional health of children, [and] premature transgender cutting".

"What are the ramifications of this poor governance? We don't know the issues because the debate was closed down."

Candidate 'condemned' use of Welcome to Country ceremonies

Following from his concern around debate, Mr McKay wrote that Indigenous customs were an imposition on the religious freedoms of public servants, who were obligated to "ensure and apply this religious ceremony publicly onto unsuspecting members of the public".

"The last one I attended included the acknowledgement and worship of Aboriginal ancestors. This is similar to a number of animistic religions around the world. These religions did not result in the benefits of development that emanates from western civilisation," he wrote.

Mr McKay also made submissions into Prostitution Act review

Mr McKay's submission to the Ruddock review was not his first contribution to a government inquiry.

In 2011, Mr McKay also wrote to the ACT inquiry reviewing the 1992 Prostitution Act.

In it, he warned that Canberra's sex industry was a "drain on the ACT housing budget" as a breakdown in relationships due to men engaging with sex workers caused separated couples increased financial hardship, and forced couples originally living under the same roof to move into two homes.

"The social consequences of the sex industry on society's health and housing budget can be measured," Mr McKay wrote.

He also called for sex work advertisements to be banned.

"Smoking is a health hazard. Casual sex is also a health hazard for committed relationships so if the government is unable to promote the benefits of long term commitments in relationships (for the betterment of their budget) it should at least restrict the promotion of casual sex."
