In the previous podcast, we looked at the basic premise of democracy and the crucial concept of separating religion from the state. This Separation of Church from State is under threat in two fronts: Christian Dominionism and Shariah Law. Building on that in this podcast, I will discuss how Religions are undermining our Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Expression and Freedom of Thought. This Sunday, 11th of May 2014, The Final Part of Chapter 17 of the Tyranny of God, God's Threat to Democracy.

Today, we live in a world that has accepted and embraced many concepts that were once considered heretical, blasphemous or just generally irreligious. Yet, in most measures, our lives are generally much better off than they have ever been if we compare them with the lives of our ancestors living in the medieval ages and in more ancient times. In this podcast, I will argue that Religion continues to threaten the basic foundation of our modern societies: democracy.

In 2010, I wrote an article about Australia's National School Chaplaincy Program, a Government program that funds $55M a year for Christian Chaplains to hang about in public schools. They are not qualified to counsel nor are they qualified t o provide psychological help. The only thing they can do really is to drive pupils to churches when they are 'lost'. Does this really help? Isn't there a much better way to help students with $55M a year?

Keeping Australia Secular

On Australia Day, 26th of January 2010, I joined a gathering among other Victorians to protest against the tactics used by religious organisations, specifically Catch The Fire Ministries in using scare tactics, instead of rational debate to discuss the issues that plague us today.

Here is a video of that day.

Unfortunately, issues like the National School Chaplaincy Program and the Internet Censorship Filter are not being debated now, with only a couple of weeks away from the election but I hope that videos like these over the next three years will help probe and investigate the impact of religious beliefs in our societies.
