Augusto Zimmerman, a writer for The Spectator Australia, asks several key questions in this article in response to Facebook censorship of material relating to an upcoming conference on religious freedom. The conference which will address correlating issues, will take place at Sheridan College in Perth, Western Australia, from June 14-15. Zimmerman notes that there seems to be a rise of anti-Christian sentiment across the globe, including in western culture.
Consider that this is not just another conference. Our list of speakers includes some our finest legal minds in Australia. This is an important legal event and we intend to publish conference proceedings in The Western Australian Jurist law journal, the yearly blind peer-reviewed academic publication of the Western Australian Legal Theory Association (WALTA). Our list of participants – speakers and moderators –includes some of the finest legal minds in Australia; Christopher Brohier, Martyn Isles, John Steinhoff, among numerous others. Participating as moderators are some of the most distinguished members, both past and present, of the Western Australia parliament, including former speaker Michael Sutherland.
