‘Religious Freedom at The Crossroads: The Rise of Anti-Christian Sentiment in The West’ (The Hon. John Winston Howard, OM, AC) 14th -15th June
Is intolerance of Christians slowly creeping into our western societies? Is faith being pushed out of public life in countries such as Australia, the UK, and the US? Is it time Christians took more of a stand to reclaim their rightful place in society?
This and other correlating issues will be addressed in this timely conference. If you feel strongly about this growing intolerance of Christians, you must not miss this major event to be held in the city of Perth, WA from 14th – 15th June 2019.

I am delighted to inform that The Hon John Howard OM AC has agreed to be the patron of our conference.
The Hon John Winston Howard, OM, AC served as the 25th Prime Minister of Australia from 1996 to 2007. He is the second-longest serving Australian Prime Minister, behind only Sir Robert Menzies, who was in office for over 18 years. Mr Howard was the leader of the Liberal Party from 1985 to 1989 and from 1995 to 2007. Being a renowned advocate of religious freedom as a fundamental right of the individual, he has called on the federal government to deal with the issue of protection of religious freedom. He believes that key threats to freedom of speech and political institutions posed by identity politics and social fragmentation have become a global phenomenon and cites the 2017 debate over same-sex marriage and the ongoing discussion about the protection of religious freedoms as a key example of a more ideological and divisive politics currently affecting national politics.
