Where is the funding for the Atheist Convention Melbourne 2010?

Jesus All About Life LIES is calling for government funding to support the Global Atheist Convention 2010 in Melbourne, Australia. This is not without precedent that government support worthwhile calls, including some not so worthwhile such as $35 million to WYD 2008 as its direct funding contribution to the costs of hosting the event and $40 million compensation package to the NSW racing industry to secure the use of Royal Randwick Racecourse during the Vigil and Papal Mass. I urge everyone to leave message at KevinPM, send email to your local MP and urge them to support the Atheist Convention. The following is my message to our PM:

Dear Mr. Rudd,

As the record shows, http://www.ret.gov.au/tourism/policy/major_events/world_youth_day_2008/Pages/WorldYouthDay2008.aspx, Australian Parliament has supported religious activities using tax payers fund. It is time to support those citizens who may not share the same religious belief as you. The 2010 Global Atheist Convention Melbourne, Australia (http://www.atheistconvention.org.au/) will be held in 2010 in Melbourne. As a goodwill to those attending the conference, may I suggest the government to support the Australian attendees with the full registration fee. If you have the will, there is a way. Please show us your government does not discriminate between the religious and the non-religious and support Australians participating in this event.
