Humanism not a religion - call for change in census question wording

The “religion” question in the last Australian census was written in a way that it included Humanism as an example of “other” religions. CAHS president Lyndon Storey made a submission to the Australian Bureaus of statistics (ABS) pointing out that Humanism is an alternative to religion rather than a subset of religion. The submission also called for a question to eb added to the census giving non religious people the option of describing their belief system, e.g. humanist, rationalist, etc. just as religious people can describe their branch of religion, catholic, protestant etc. More information, including a link to the submission, on the CAHS website here
