Religion

TO THE HONOURABLE THE SPEAKER AND MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. This petition of 'Certain Citizens of Australia;' draws to the attention of the House, that the current definition of religion under Australian Bureau of Statistics 1266.0, classification 1996, is both wrong and indecisive. "Belief in a supernatural being. Religious laws of canons must not be immune or have rights above ordinary laws''.

We therefore ask the house to redefine religion in such a manner as;''The belief in a supernatural being,extolling positive spiritual enlightenment to all mankind and all living things,including adherence to the Ten Commandments". Therefore no religion;shall abuse human rights,be governed by a political party, that promotes, bigotry, hatred, intolerance, racism, discrimination, criminal intent, satanic influences, Cults that endorse artificial worship associated with Satan, Sects-which includes bigotry, unreasonable adherence to a human creed, human control, political overtones.
