Christianity as the major religious tradition:
In 1947, majority of Australia population was Anglo-Celtic (either English, Scottish, Irish, Walsh or British) and most of them were identified as Christians (88%). The decrease of Christian and the rise of other religions or non-religious population was due to:
  Immigration in 30s and 40s, especially from Asia and Middle East introduced Buddhist, Hindu and Muslims and the Jewish immigrants who emphasised the democratic society
      Denominational switching, thus the rise of Pentecostalism, and the New Age Movement influenced the population of Christians
      Increase of ‘non religion’ population, such as Secularist or Atheists
      The political/policies in society is depended on ‘human rights’, not religious reference
    Immigration:
  Immigration, especially during WW2 increased the rate of Catholic members; Europeans grew the numbers of Orthodox, Protestant and Catholics
      Immigration from Asia and Middle East expended Buddhist, Hindu and Muslim members that influenced on the number of Christian adherents; increased ethnic diversity; Christian denomination
      Increase of ethnic diversity caused increase of Denominational switching which increased the Pentecostalism
    Denominational switching:
  Pentecostalism
      A fundamentalist religious movement
      A term including a wide range of different theological and organizational perspectives, thus there is no central organisation or church which directs the movement
      Emphasise on the direct personal experience of God through the Baptism of the Holy Spirit
      Individual’s decision whether to experience Pentecostalism
      Often identified as Protestant or Evangelicals
      No religious hierarchy, thus there is no one below God
      Glossolalia or speaking with tongues...
