The article presents a debate on the merits of hate-speech laws in context of the case of Christian preachers vilifying Islam. In March 2002, the Catch the Fire Ministries, conducted a seminar on Islam in Melbourne, Victoria, attended by its pastors Daniel Scot and Danny Nalliah, both accused of preaching Christianity and defaming Islam in the past. Three Muslims at the seminar brought suit against Scot, Nalliah and Catch the Fire under the state's Racial and Religious Tolerance Act.
