The Australian Christian Lobby today extended congratulations to Prime Minister elect Scott Morrison. 

Martyn Iles, ACL’s managing director said, “We look forward to continuing our constructive conversation with the government on religious freedom.” 

“It’s now been over three months since the Ruddock Review was released. Religious freedom must be a priority for the Morrison ministry in light of increasing numbers of Australians who are getting in trouble with the law for living out their faith.” 

“ACL also urges the government to follow it's commendable legacy of securing Australia's borders with a solution to the humanitarian crisis on Nauru and Manus Island, where hundreds of asylum seekers have languished for five years.” 

Mr Iles said that ACL trusts Mr Morrison will demonstrate the strong leadership required for a new era of political stability.
