Event description

Freedom19 – The Benefits of Religious Freedom to a Civil Society

We live in a time when many see religion and freedom for religion as a threat to civil society. Religious belief is decried as the cause of violence, extremism, the stifling of free thought and the subjugation of others. These are important challenges. If religion poisons everything then wouldn’t we be better off without freedom for it? At most should the law allow for a tolerance of 'nice believers' whose beliefs and speech do not cause harm to others? Shouldn’t conformity to good social norms be preferred over freedom to dissent? 

The Commonwealth is drafting potentially significant legislative protection for freedom of belief. We want to therefore pause and ask the question - what are the benefits of religious freedom to a civil society?

Join with lawyers, politicians, academics and faith leaders at the NSW Parliament for Freedom19.

Speakers include Justice Sarah Derrington, Senator Amanda Stoker, Prof. Patrick Parkinson AM, Prof. Nicholas Aroney, Mark Sneddon and Dr. Rory Shiner.
