Freedom for Faith submission on the draft Religious Discrimination Bill
“Freedom for Faith” has released its submission to the Commonwealth Government on its Exposure Draft Religious Discrimination Bill. It can be downloaded here. I recommend it as an excellent overview of the Bill, with a good summary of its good points and some areas where it could be improved. I have provided some previous comments on the Bill here and here. Public submissions are still being received here until October 2.
Legal Reflections on the Religious Discrimination Bill
I gave an interview recently to the Gospel Coalition Australia website, in which I explore some of the good and bad points of the legislation released last week. The interview is linked here: https://au.thegospelcoalition.org/article/legal-reflections-religious-discrimination-bill/.
