Religious Tolerance in an age of extremes : Religious tolerance is a breeding ground for multicultural success while discrimination and ostracism leads to societal failure. Other events...
We live today in what some claim to be one of the most religiously intolerant periods in history. Not only are some religious minorities believed to be fomenters of disharmony in other countries but, in our society, they are seen to mix only with their peers, wear distinctly un-Australian clothing and live together in ethnic ghettoes into which no one else is allowed to enter.

The lecture focuses on reasons religious tolerance is a breeding ground for multicultural success while discrimination and ostracism leads to societal failure. It also addresses the subject of freedom of religion and the implications of marginalization of religious thought and practice resulting from growing secularism.
Speaker(s) Fred Woods & Neville Rochow
