Preamble & Objectives


The Ambrose Centre For Religious Liberty has been established to defend religious freedom as one of the foundations of human rights and a strong, democratic and pluralistic society. It does not believe that every individual, group, cult, sect and organisation is right, or that their beliefs are equally valid or true. But it does believe that we all have a right to our own answers, even if others think they are wrong. The Ambrose Centre For Religious Liberty will uphold the right to religious liberty for individuals and religious organisations through advocacy.

In Australia the right to religious liberty is enshrined at the federal level in the Australian Constitution at section 116. The main legislative instrument giving protection to this right is the Commonwealth Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission Act 1986. This Act emphasises that a person shall not, amongst other factors, be discriminated against on the grounds of religion. The Ambrose Centre For Religious Liberty believes that the law should permit discrimination for what is good.

The Ambrose Centre For Religious Liberty develops public awareness of the importance of this fundamental right to engage in the search for meaning and to live out the answers a person comes to, publicly and privately. This is a fundamental right for every person and this is enshrined in numerous human rights documents, including the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

To promote the right to religious liberty and to raise awareness of this right, the Ambrose Centre:

  1. Holds events, reports of past events and notification of upcoming events will generally be listed under the Events page of this website.
  2. Arranges press articles and interviews
  3. Writes submissions
  4. Publishes a newsletter
