    Religious freedom can kicked down the road - again

    It’s been more than six years since Liberal and Labor promised protections for freedom of religion after this fundamental human right was smashed by the re-definition of marriage in law. Pressure on faith-based schools, churches, charities and faithful Christians in woke workplaces has mounted as society’s gender norms have been upended. The Turnbull and Morrison governments dragged the chain until a bill was finally put in the dying days of the Morrison government only to be scuttled by Liberals joining with Labor and the Greens to defeat it. The Albanese Government is yet to present its promised bill but Attorney General Mark Dreyfus announced this week it has now been delayed until July. Meanwhile the Government is sitting on a revised report into religious schools from the Australian Law Reform Commission.
