Event description

Description

The Centre for Independent Studies invites you, on behalf of Connor Court Publishing, to the book release of The Tyranny of Tolerance by Peter Kurti. With remarks from Professor James Allan and Peter Kurti in Brisbane.

It was a confident expectation for more than a century that religion — its beliefs, doctrines and institutions — would atrophy in the face of growing secularisation. But not only has traditional Christianity survived in liberal western societies; other faiths, most conspicuously Islam, have increasingly become a perceptible presence. This evolution gives rise to many questions about the place of religion in liberal democratic society.

In a time of ‘fake news’ and social media mobs, Kurti’s thoughtful deliberation about the meaning of tolerance and its tension with political liberty is indispensable. He critiques the origin of Australian multiculturalism and the corrosive cultural effect of codifying diversity in discrimination law. This book is a measured, scholarly treatment of a subject too often submerged in superficial polemic. It resurrects religious freedom and restores the principle to its rightful place in the heart of 21st-century democracy. — Jennifer Oriel

Kurti exposes a grand deception: the tolerance and diversity brigade cannot tolerate diversity of thought. — Nick Cater

Guests are requested to arrive at 5:15 pm for a 5:30 pm start.

Canapés and drinks will be provided. Books will be available for purchase and signing on the night.
