In today’s world, religious literacy is more important than ever. But the Media Bill, currently making its way through Parliament, puts this core cultural and civic competency in peril by removing existing obligations for public service broadcasters to provide programming specifically about religion or belief.
Faith is a prime motivator of both individuals and communities. What people believe informs political, economic, ethical and social behaviour.
Good religious broadcasting promotes understanding of what religion and faith are about. It supports and models dialogue between communities.

Because, in the world today, religion and religious literacy matter more than ever before.
