The second draft bill includes provisions allowing religious hospitals, aged care facilities, and accommodation providers such as retirement homes to discriminate against staff on the basis of religious belief in order to preserve the “religious ethos” of that institution.
It will ensure that the exemptions that applies to religious bodies extends to “public benevolent institutions”, allowing them to discriminate on the grounds of religion.
The proposed bill permits religious camps and conference centres to discriminate provided they publish a policy explaining their ethos and rules.
This is not a bill to protect religious beleifs – it promotes them to a position of extreme priviliege.
The Atheist Foundation of Australia recognises the scientific method as the only rational means toward understanding reality. To question and critically examine all ideas, testing them in the light of experiment, leads to the discovery of facts.
As there seems to be no scientific evidence for supernatural phenomena, atheists reject belief in ‘God’, gods, and other supernatural beings. The universe, the world in which we live, and the evolution of life seem to be entirely natural occurrences.
No personality or mind can exist without the process of living matter to sustain it. We have only one life – here and now. All that remains after a person dies is the memory of their life and deeds in the minds of those who remain.
Atheists reject superstition and prejudice along with the irrational fears they cause. We recognise the complexity and interdependence of life on this planet. As rational and ethical beings we accept the challenge of making a creative and responsible contribution to life.

If you want to get together in any exclusive situation and have people love you, fine – but to hang all this desperate sociology on the idea of The Cloud-Guy who has The Big Book, who knows if you’ve been bad or good – and CARES about any of it – to hang it all on that, folks, is the chimpanzee part of the brain working.
“Isn’t it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?”
“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.”
To sum up:
1. The cosmos is a gigantic flywheel making 10,000 revolutions a minute.
2. Man is a sick fly taking a dizzy ride on it.
3. Religion is the theory that the wheel was designed and set spinning to give him a ride.
Religion is against women’s rights and women’s freedom. In all societies women are oppressed by all religions.
