The Salamanca Declaration is a joint statement by each of Tasmania’s major heads of Churches and Christian Networks and which affirms that all human life is sacred, that we are all endowed with the liberty to worship God and have our consciences informed by our faith in God, and that the marriage between a man and woman is the best home environment to raise children and to leave a legacy for our State.
