The University of Melbourne Secular Society and ALP club are proud to be holding a joint event about the intersection of religion and politics in Australia.
6:00 – 7:30pm
Wednesday 19th May
Upstairs of Prince Alfred Hotel, Carlton
Featured guests will include Meredith Doig from the Rationalist Society of Australia, a think-tank devoted to promoting science, reason and secular values in Australian society, along with Labor MP Brian Tee (Eastern Metropolitan Region). Brain has served on the Victorian Legislative Council since 2006 and was involved in the sculpting of the Human Rights Bill in Victoria, and thus dealt with the issue of the many Church groups that attempted to secure exemptions from the Bill.
What role does religion play in influencing public policy in Australia? What role should it play? Is there a separation of church and state in Australia? These questions as well as your own will be up for discussion in this fascinating conversation.
Drink and food specials will be available at PA’s during the event.
