I think in Australia religion is a very open subject, although it is not often spoken about it does somehow envitably impact politicians view on various sensitive topics. Thankfully though Australia is a country that allows freedom of religion which is an amazing right to have 

Re: What do you believe?

I am Christian, but religion isn't something I follow. I believe there is a God, and I have very strong faith, but I also believe that he never meant for us to confine ourselves to set rules and punish ourselves if those rules are broken.

 

 

I truly think that God wants us to approach him with an open mind and heart, not in fear or worry of religious constraints.

Re: What do you believe?

I agree with m-y93, Australia has great religious freedom, which is reflected in the public policies.

On the otherhand the media, I think anyway, instills a lot of animosity towards some religions, especially the Islamic faith which makes us, as a society, somewhat more fearful and close minded.
