I would like to remind the panel that unless freedom FROM religion is considered as equal or superior to freedom of religion, discrimination is almost inevitable. The reason for this is that most religions are not shy about promoting their views in politics and society at large, with scant regard for the fact that their morality may not be universal. And all that is done why being granted tax exemptions worth billions, which means every Australian pays for religious activities, willingly or otherwise.

Freedom of religion should be limited to such practice of religion that does not harm others IN ANY WAY, and does not seek to impose religious values on unwilling citizens.
