Today, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has introduced legislation to hold a marriage equality plebiscite in Parliament.
This plebiscite has been rejected by the people most affected by the issue; LGBTIQ+ Australians who will have to endure the campaign. A campaign that will no doubt be characterised by hateful rhetoric from bigoted religious extremists and fundamentalists.
The Council of Australian Humanist Societies does not support this plebiscite.
The Council of Australian Humanist Societies inc is excited to launch our brand new website!
In the past various past CAHS committee's of CAHS have had trouble in maintaining our web presence due to a variety of reasons (skills being the main one). It is hoped that this redesigned site with a brand new backend will make it much easier for our committeed volunteers to maintain and upload new and interesting articles regularly.
The Council of Australian Humanist Societies is pleased to announce that the next Australian Humanist Conference will be held in Brisbane from May 27 to 29, 2016!
Over the course of two and a half days, Humanists from around Australia will meet to discuss issues facing Australia today, listen to some amazing people on topics of interest and help shape the direction of Humanism in Australia into the future.
It's been a busy month and a half for the new Council of Australian Humanist Societies Executive. The transition process has been completed and we thank the past CAHS Executive for all the work they did keeping the organisation running smoothly. Transition isn't the only thing that has happened since the handover started in the last weekend of May. We've been busy tracking down and posting past copies of Australian Humanist to the website.
