An Australian Christian organisation is raising concern over the scheduling of a major basketball match on Christmas Day.
Family Voice says the planning of the National Basketball League match is a "blatant attempt to undermine and belittle the faith of Australian Christians".
The game between Sydney Kings and Melbourne United is the first game to take place on Christmas day in Australia, but games regularly take place then in the USA.
Explaining the decision, Sydney Kings chairman Paul Smith said: "We are a changing society.
"Christmas isn't a holy event for all of us, and it can be a lonely day for a lot of people.
"So to be able to come out to a world-class venue for a world-class game of hoops, or just watching the Sydney Kings at home on TV, it's a game changer."
Greg Bondar from Family Voice thinks it's a step too far.
"The NBL chairman who says 'we are a changing society' and that '...the innovation better reflected a diverse Australian society' has failed to factor in the fact that NBL has numerous Christian players and followers who will be stifled from celebrating one the most sacred days on the Christian calendar."
The group is calling for a boycott of the game by Christians in Australia.
