Buddhist Temple construction started in Nicholls today

By Barcham - 18 March 2013 25

Work on a new Buddhist Temple began work today in Nicholls. Blessings and foundations were laid today, the start of a long process planned to end in 2015.

“The foundation stone ceremony signified the official commencement to the construction phase for the
temple,” Dr Bourke said.

“It is wonderful that the temple’s foundation stone ceremony is in the week that Canberra is celebrating 100
years since the laying of the city’s foundation stone.

“When completed, the complex will house a temple, landscaped gardens and residential quarters for the monks
who will stay on site.”

What’s Your opinion?

For every extremist Muslim I bet there’s just as many white-anglo bigots, if not far more.

The difference being of course that you can call white-anglo anything you like without fear. Mention that Islamics may be less than spotless in their views and you are branded a racist.

Why should Maoris have to deal with them?

Also, someone likes Chris Bourke so much they tagged him as christ bourke, which is a funny slip in the context.

I’m counting on the Maoris being more than capable of beating the bulls**t out of them. That way they either stop being so horrible, or they die.

I do wish people would stop acting as though every Muslim is an extremist menace intent on turning Australia into an Islamic state. For every extremist Muslim I bet there’s just as many white-anglo bigots, if not far more. We should stick all those types on a boat to NZ, IMO.

It’s the same thing

Not sure if trolling or serious?

Buddhists are peaceful and don’t push their views on anyone. They also aren’t trying to change Australian culture.
I would be happy to see the temple…. Would not be happy to see the mosque.
My personal views, sorry if it offends.

Don’t apologise, you’re the one I feel sorry for.

The horror the horror.

Maybe I’m not in the loop (or just stopped listening until now), but this is the first I’ve heard of a Buddhist temple.

Given the hoopla over the proposed Muslim mosque in the same suburb, can someone please explain why there’s been nil concern over this one?

Or are Buddhists more likely to walk or cycle so those same ‘parking’ concerns aren’t an issue here….
