Australia's coalition government has proposed the introduction of legislation that would make it unlawful to discriminate against people on the ground of their religious belief or activity.
The proposal is being made to implement a commitment made in the 2019 federal election.
The legislation would also establish a religious freedom commissioner at the Australian Human Rights Commission.
Moreover, it would amend existing laws regarding religious freedom, including marriage and charities law, and objects clauses in anti-discrimination law.
