Religious freedom high on the new PM’s legislative agenda

The Australian Christian Lobby welcomes Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s call to enact legislation on religious freedom. 

“In light of recent cases referred to the Human Rights Law Alliance the ACL is acutely aware that the need for religious freedom legislation isn’t going away,” said managing director Martyn Iles. 

“One such case involves a photographer who agreed to do a photoshoot for a lesbian couple’s family but also gently informed them of his Christian beliefs. He has now been sued – simply for stating his faith.” 

“This case follows dozens of others over the last few years, making it obvious that we urgently require legislative action to protect religious freedom in Australia,” commented Mr Iles.
