Why is the Government tolerant of faiths other than Christianity?

PUBLISHED: 12:02 20 September 2012

AM I the only one to be increasingly concerned and appalled at the actions of our Government in challenging, ultimately in the courts, the personal choice of Christians to wear symbols of their faith?

Other faiths are allowed freedom of expression and tolerance is frequently preached by Government ministers including the Prime Minister.

So why is it taxpayers’ money and legal time is spent telling me and others if and when I might wear a cross or similar symbol?

The Government does not act in my name on this as other issues of conscience.
