During our attendance at LibertyFest Brisbane we met fellow Australian alt-media personality Dave Pellowe who hosts the online talk show Church and State. It aims empower Christians to think about politics and features discussions about public issues at the intersection of culture, politics & truth. He has had many high profile guests which have included Senators Pauline Hanson, Malcolm Roberts and Cory Bernardi as well as former Queensland Premier Campbell Newman.
We discuss with Dave why he chose the name Church and State and how he sees the relationship in society between Christians, the state and people of other beliefs. We ask him about the different schools of conservative and Christian thought and his views on the merits of each. We look at whether there are some limits to freedom, specifically looking at the issues of prostitution and drugs. We discuss the state of free speech in Australia and why it is never justified for governments to place restrictions on it.
