Freedom of Religion

The Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) is conducting an Inquiry called ”Freedom of Religion and Belief in the 21st Century” – they’re inviting submissions from everyone by 31 January 2009.
Saltshakers says the ‘authors’ of this Inquiry are the same three men who proposed a rotating roster of prayers for our federal Parliament, interfaith Networks and interfaith ‘sacred spaces’.
That means we should pay even MORE attention.
Another hint about the intent of this Inquiry is the sort of questions asked: Such as:
“Would a legislated national Charter of Rights add to these freedoms of religion and belief?” and “How is diverse sexuality perceived within faith communities?”
Hidden in this work is a drive to undermine Christian values, rather than to enhance Christian freedom on Australia.
