Freedom of religion

The pioneer Australian Christians listed on this website helped create, some fought for, Australia with its freedoms for religion. This freedom is now under threat.

In an adult, civil society:
1. Every person is entitled to his or her beliefs.
2. If a person’s belief differs from your belief – respond by ignoring or debating.
3. If a person’s belief leads to physical action against another person – respond within the law.
* Even in cases of ‘coercion of others’, rules 2 and 3 are still relevant.

It is appropriate that Australia has legislation relating to ACTIONS.
However any legislation to protect BELIEFS is fraught with problems.
If BELIEFS are legislated for (or enforced), there are implications for the following:

LGBTQ BELIEFS
Think Israel Folau etc etc. Jordan Peterson’s video is an example of trying to impose trans-BELIEFS:  Heated debate on gender pronouns and free speech in Toronto https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SiijS_9hPkM

ISLAMIC BELIEFS
As per society required to embrace Halal, Sharia, etc. Muslims are further demanding ACTION protections / legislation for their BELIEFS.
Augusto Zimmermann has written on this and the latest lobbying of the Prime Minister by Australia’s Grand Mufti Dr Ibrahim Abu Mohamed for Islamic protections:
Islam’s Crusade Against Free Speech https://quadrant.org.au/opinion/qed/2019/08/islams-crusade-against-free-speech/

ABORIGINAL BELIEFS
As per society-embracing Smoking ceremonies, climbing Ayres Rock / Uluru etc. Aboriginals will further demand ACTION protection for their BELIEFS.
