Lessons from St Thomas More and the freedom of religion in Australia today

St Thomas More is the patron saint of politicians and statesmen. He was beheaded for his Catholic faith and passionate defence of religious freedom. Nearly 500 years later, placing limits on the extent of an individual’s religious freedom has never been more popular. Freedom of religion is a core Australian value and its protection requires strong vigilance from growing secularism and unbridled populism. A look at populism and the current state of the religious freedom debate in Australia through the eyes of St Thomas More.
