All persons should have freedom FROM religion and the expectations that all monies raised by religious organisations be fully reported to the ATO and subsequently if not used in charitable causes be fully taxed. Organisations such as the Australian Christian Lobby, which is not a Church, should be subject to full taxation and have its charitable status removed as it is a lobby group and not a religious organisation. The constitution should be amended to ensure that political lobby groups are not charitable organisations subject to nil taxation. No prayer should be publically uttered prior to the sitting of Parliament as these are not inclusive and are against my rights as an atheist.
