Statement by TELA on complaints against the Bible

    The Television and Entertainment Licensing Authority (TELA) today (May 17) issued the following statement regarding complaints against the contents of the Bible by some members of the public:

     "The Bible is a religious text which is part of civilisation.  It has been passed on from generation to generation.  TELA considers that such longstanding religious texts or literature have not violated standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable members of the community. Therefore, TELA will not submit the Bible to the Obscene Articles Tribunal for classification."
