    The majority of this Bill is most appropriate, although you'd need to amend this to allow Muslims to pray as discreetly as possible when it is required of them. Secularity is something I support in Parliament, although in public this isn't necessarily practical.

    But this bill isn't aimed at Parliament, is it?

    The bill's ridiculous. Yes, the country should be essentially secular, but people should be free to practice whatever religion they wish insofar as it does not infringe on other's rights.

    Yes, I'm quite aware that this isn't aimed at Parliament. I believe that people should have a right to religious liberty, with an entirely secular State. A State that is prohibited from making religious references on official documents, in statements, etc.; it alienates too many people.
