Christian groups and individuals have until Monday, December 20 to make submissions on the Morrison government’s religious discrimination bill.

Its progress in Parliament has stalled since being introduced by the Prime Minister last month.

The Parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights has developed an online survey seeking public input.

The Australian Christian Lobby is urging people of faith to fill it in and make submissions.

Deputy Director Dan Flynn told Vision Radio: “It’s a very good survey, generally pretty straight forward.”

He underlines faith-based responses are important because there’s a lot of misinformation about the bill.

Mr Flynn says opponents are actively campaigning against the proposed new laws.

“It’s a very fervent, frenetic campaign to kick up as much dust as they can.”

The parliamentary committee is holding public hearings in Canberra on Tuesday, December 21  and in mid-January.

Presentations can be made via video links.

The survey can be found on the ACL website.
