Placating evil is not tolerance

Jul 9, 2016 by

Kevin Donnelly – TIM Soutphommasane, Australia’s Race Discrimination Commissioner, argues in the Fairfax Press: “Every member of our society should be free to live without fear of discrimination. This includes being free to practise their religion, as guaranteed by section 116 of the Constitution”.

Wrong. While the Constitution states “The Commonwealth shall not make any law for establishing any religion, or for imposing any religious observance, or for prohibiting the free exercise of any religion” those responsible would not accept that all religious beliefs should be tolerated.

The reality is that not all religions are peaceful and tolerant and it’s clear that some practices and beliefs are un-Australian.

The Hindu caste system discriminates against ‘untouchables’ and the system of dowry, where husbands demand money and gifts from their prospective wives’ families, still leads to violence and death.
