Why not simply make Religion to be kept inside the home ? Churches & other places of worship could be made into fantastic museums & cultural centers.
No money needed to build new ones.
Ban religion in public !

It's encouraging that both sides of politics
are willing to work together on the religious
discrimination bill proposed by the Prime Minister.

There's no question that our laws should ensure
that all people are protected from discrimination.

Hopefully the government will engage directly with
all community groups. They need to get the
balance right. Because if this legislation is not
crafted carefully it will hand a license to
discriminate to religious organisations.

That should be a grave concern.

Let me try and break it down to a few questions.

Does Freedom of Religion infer the right to advocate or commit unlawful, unethical or discriminatory acts based on the particular doctrine of that religious belief?

And if not, does that then mean freedom of religion is restricted?

Furthermore if a religion contains both malevolent and benevolent aspects should steps be taken to denounce those malevolent aspects?
- Or do we just accept them as a part of that religion? -

Now, before you respond;
I want you to consider the 21st Century religion 'Equality'.
Which means that whatever choice you make be mindful of this:

- What you do for one, you must do for the other -

For example you'd have to extend those rights to these kinds of religious believers:

Don't assume all religions are the same, or all good or even restricted to the Abrahamic ones.

Belly,

It is the height of hypocrisy to deny that there is a God and then demand days off work in his name.

It's time that Australia joined some of the more enlightened countries of the world and abolished the weekend.
Sunday is held as special because of its religious connotations and has no place in a secular society.

By all means, let people have a couple of days off each week but stagger them throughout industry/business/service so that the country keeps working 7 days a week.

Is Mise,

What about the Republicans who celebrate the
Queen's Birthday? What about the non-gamblers
on Melbourne Cup Day?

And so on.

Hypocrites all.
