Religious freedom

ChristianView Network defends religious freedom, which is particularly under threat at present from:

Broadly worded ‘hate speech‘ legislation including:

  • The Equality Act, 2000 – to which we objected at the time and still object
  • The proposed Film and Publications Amendment Bill
  • The proposed Hate speech and hate crimes bill

We believe that the definition of ‘hate speech’ should be no broader than unprotected speech in the Bill of Rights.

  • Proposals for the state to regulate churches and religious practitioners
  • Restrictions on religious freedom in school
  • Undermining of parental rights in the home and school
