To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives:
This petition draws the attention of the House to consider our concerns for religious freedom in Australia.
We the undersigned call upon the Australian government to ensure full, permanent and adequate protections of religious freedoms:
the freedom to worship; to read Scriptures in public; to interpret Scriptures without government interference; to choose or change one’s faith; to preach and try to convince others; to establish places of worship; and the freedom from being required to affirm particular beliefs to study, stand for election, hold particular jobs (except where there is a genuine occupational requirement such as chaplaincy posts), or give parental care to a child.
This petition has now closed.
