    Could not resist this oldie. Psycho Chicken by The Fools. Could be a theme song?

    Brilliant Brett! I love it

    I’ve made my submission to the Freedoms review and I know it is not earth shattering reading. However if every secular Australian makes a submission defending our protection from legalised religious bigotry, they will have to pay attention. Hope many other people will jump on board with your drive.

    One interesting question to pose. I wonder what the breakdown will be of those who click the “confidential” button on their submission? I think more religious organisations than secular will click the confidential buttons, what do you all think? Will we ever be provided the statistics on that, or will that also be confidential?
