Victorian Government Refuses Funding for Atheist Convention in Melbourne

The Victorian State Government has basically ignored the request for funding for the "Rise of Atheism" Convention in Melbourne next March, while allocating $4.5m in funds for the "The Parliament of the World’s Religions".

This decision to basically ignore the funding request shows gross contempt for Atheism and Atheists alike in favour of religion and religious organisations.

See article posted at the convention's website Atheists Too Hot to Handle for Victorian Government.

Today in the "Comment & Debate" section of The Age devotes an entire column to this injustice.

I see this as an odd reaction from the Government, who describes Australia as "multicultural and secular".

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on this.
