Freedom to teach religion in schools under threat according to Christians in NSW

May 5th, 2018

Rev. Hon. Fred Nile MLC, and Paul Green of Christian Democratic Party, wish to introduce the Anti-Discrimination (Religious Beliefs and Religious Activities) Bill in the Parliament in the state of New South wales in Australia.

According to Paul Green, MLC, the freedom of religious people and institutes are under attack and that this Bill will protect their rights, including protection from mistreatment on the grounds of faith. He is deeply concerned that without this bill, the ability to teach religion in schools and operate charities with Government funding will come under attack. 

“We are working to safeguard the ability of faith-based Schools to teach faith-based values without penalty, as well as ensuring religious groups do not lose their charitable status because of their faith.” said Hon. Paul Green MLC.

Rev. Hon .Fred Nile MLC says that free conscience including freedom to pursue ones own faith, is fundamental to Australian social values. “Every human being should live by their own conscience, including religious conscious” concluded Hon. Paul Green MLC. 

Hon Paul Green MLC is seeking the support of all faith groups to show their support for his Bill.
