2SER: NSW religious vilification bill under scrutiny

NSW Attorney General Michael Daley introduced the Anti-Discrimination Amendment (Religious Vilification) Bill 2023 to NSW Parliament last month.

The Bill would prohibit vilification on the basis of religious belief or affiliation or religious activity. In a media release, PIAC expressed its concern the outlined reforms are too broad and inconsistent with existing laws.

Alastair Lawrie, PIAC’s Director of Policy and Advocacy, joined 2SER Breakfast to talk about the government’s Religious Vilification Bill and some of its potential problems.
