What happens when there's a rising tide of religious sentiment in a state that is officially secular? How should governments respond to the demands of a population that wants more religion in its public discourse?
Some of the world's leading religion journalists, commentators and scholars have come to Brisbane to discuss this issue, among many others at the International Religion Journalism Symposium at Griffith University.
Three of the participants -- Endy Bayuni, senior editor at The Jakarta Post in Indonesia, Peggy Fletcher Stack from The Salt Lake Tribune in Utah in the United States, and Paul Marshall of the Hudson Institute Center for Religious Freedom in Washington DC -- discuss the issues with Andrew West.
