Prof. William Wagner serves the Keynote Speaker at a worldwide conference on the threat to religious freedom.
Religious Freedom at the Crossroads – the Rise of Anti-Christian Sentiment in the West
14-15 June 2019
AUSTRALIA – Sheridan College,
Suite 41 10 Nash St, Perth, WA 6000
Every day millions of Christians around the world are persecuted for their faith. They are often intimidated, abused, and in fear for their lives all because of their commitment to Christ.
The Pew Research Centre Report, which analyses religious freedom in 198 countries and territories, reveals that Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world today.
But is intolerance of Christians slowly creeping into our western societies? Is faith being pushed out of public life in countries such as Australia, the UK, and the US? Is it time Christians took more of a stand to reclaim their rightful place in society?
This and other correlating issues will be addressed in this timely conference.
If you feel strongly about this growing intolerance of Christians, you must not miss this major event to be held in the city of Perth.
Our list of speakers includes some our finest legal minds in Australia – Augusto Zimmermann, Martyn Iles, John Steenhof, Christopher Brohier, and many others.
Our keynote speaker is the Distinguished Professor Emeritus William Wagner
The Hon John Winston Howard, OM, AC served as the 25th Prime Minister of Australia from 1996 to 2007. He is the second-longest serving Australian Prime Minister. A renowned advocate of religious freedom as a fundamental right of the individual, he called on the federal government to protect religious freedom. He believes that key threats to freedom of speech and political institutions, posed by identity politics and social fragmentation, have become a global phenomenon.
We look forward to seeing you at this significant event.
