Submission to the Australian Human Rights Commission re Religious Freedom Roundtable 2015
Thank you for the opportunity to lodge a submission regarding the upcoming Religious Freedom Roundtable (herein “Roundtable”) hosted by the Australian Human Rights Commission (“AHRC”).
Freedom for Faith is an organisation that was formed to educate the Christian church and wider public on issues relating to freedom of religion in Australia. Freedom for Faith’s leadership team includes senior leaders from the Anglican, Baptist, Pentecostal, Presbyterian and Seventh-day Adventist traditions, as well as legal experts.
The main purpose of this submission is to give feedback on the list of issues and the Draft Statement of Purpose and Guiding Principles provided by the Human Rights Commissioner (herein “the Commissioner”).
