Australians fear "blasphemy law" over new bill defending religions including radical Islam

Australian Senator Pauline Hanson posted the following two videos (embedded below) on social media with the following description:

"...Many people, including myself, are concerned about the rights of Australians who practice a legitimate religious faith.
But what do we do when a belief clashes with the laws and customs of our land?
The Government wants to force a bill through parliament they say is aimed at protecting religious freedom but have failed to give any details of the bill.
I am concerned that such a bill could be used by radical islamic extremists as a shield to protect the worst aspects of their political ideology and I would need to be assured that there were adequate protections against this in the legislation.
By forcing this through without scrutiny the Government may be creating a pathway for extremists to practice polygamy, genital mutilation, or even underaged marriage and this cannot be allowed to happen.
We must always be on guard for the unintended consequences of good intentions..."
