The Klan come to Canberra. Gungahlin mosque stirs up the racist nuts

johnboy 28 June 2012 252

mosque flyer

Quite a lot of our readers have come home to this nasty flyer and sent it in to us.

A few points:

    1. We had the news a mosque was going in there back in January 2011. It hasn’t exactly been done in any secrecy at all. My only surprise is that it hasn’t been finished yet.

    2. No one belly aches about social impact, traffic, public interest (how is that any different from social impact? And what do either of them mean other than “I am a bigot and hate muslims”?), or scale and height when a church is being built. Have you heard those bells on Sunday morning when Real Australians are nursing a hangover? And yet not one word of complaint.

    3. “Concerned Citizens of Canberra”? We’re really that close to “Koncerned Kitizens of Kanberra”?

Oh and they’re having a secret meeting on Sunday that they only want you at if you agree with them.

We have far more to fear from these ratbags than any number of devout muslims in our society.

Feel free to share your feelings with concernedcitizensofcanberra@gmail.com and let us know what you told them.

Here’s the viewscape they’re so worried about:

They now just look completely tragic….

haha morons.

Canberra Multicultural Community Forum deputy chair Diana Abdel-Rahman said Canberrans were ”intelligent enough, smart enough” to make up their own minds about the development.

This.

amazing how loud a small group can be. And out of how many of the 30 showed up to the secret meeting, were actually against anything or just checking it out?

All this talk about how objectionable Muslims are, the whole thing just looks bad for Christians (after all we are tarring one religion because of extremists, so why not another?).

If the mosque causes traffic problems, Jesus would just want you to forgive them right?

The only thing that complainants may have a valid point about is if the Mosque intends to employ a loudspeaker with a chanting call to prayer at dawn every day.
Sometimes though, this can sound quite mystical and add to the character of a place.

Oh yeah mystical, let me guess you don’t live in the area and will NOT be effected. The first time I hear it will be the last time it sounds

You can probably rest easy. I’ve heard the spokesman for the mosque state on radio that they will not be playing PA system calls to prayer. Doesn’t seem to be any mention of this issue on the CMC website, unless it’s buried deep.

Call your stupid ideas a “Religion”, and suddenly you’ve got a sacred cow that nobody is allowed to criticise. According to the dim lefties in our midst, anyway.

It seems to me that is argument it dominated on on side (lets call that side “lefties”) who think religion is harmless fun (for people with imaginary friends), and that there are some nutters out there who use religion as an excuse. And on the other side it is dominated by people who think that all muslims are violent women repressing militant jihadists – religion isn’t the bad thing, other peoples religions is the bad thing.

Is this accurate?

I am a leftie and abhor most religions, but islam more than others. The biggest problem with islam is that it has not gone through any process of reformation.

I’m a “leftie” and so are most of my friends, most of whom think that religion is the biggest scam ever invented. I’d say that more of us decry religion than do the righties.

I find Islam particularly noxious, but only at the moment and only marginally more than others, most of which have been equally noxious at one time or another, and many of which continue to be so in more out-of-the-way places.

That’s a pretty vicious outpouring for a leftie. You will be lucky get away with that without a Fatwa being issued.

A few years ago I’d have been more concerned about the Spanish Inquisition (these days called the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

I wouldn’t say I’m a ‘leftie’ or a ‘rightie’ as it’s just a label – I tend to have views on either side depending on the topic. I also think all religion is a bit weird but who am I to tell people how to live.

Of the muslims I’ve met in Canberra all but one I would say are normal people like you and I. Hold down a public service job, some are women and they work, those with kids have both sexes going to normal schools, some play cricket, one plays golf, some even drink alcohol. None of them ever tried to push their beliefs on to anyone else.

The extremists, or anyone that doesn’t respect others can all go to hell. In fact the extremists and bully boys on all sides should get themselves an island and battle each other out while the rest of us live in peace.

But comparing the 1 billion plus muslims in the world with people like the Taliban, is like comparing western culture with the nazi’s (godwins).

I watched the video on page 7 and am appalled by what that woman said. How about she learn what Islamic culture is, not use her hearsay sample size of one murder that occured somewhere someplace in time as a cultural norm.

I don’t live in Gunghalin, but if there was a mosque going up in my suburb i couldn’t care two hoots.

I’ve sat in Morocco with women and artists and drunk Moroccan produced beer and wine.

I’ve known people of all those persuasions who’ve lived in both of those countries.

I think you need to travel there and experience what they’re really like, and erase those silly misconceptions once and for all.

I’ve some fantastic evenings with Moroccan wine (and people) in Marrakesh, Tangier, Fes and Essaouira to name a few. Never really liked their beer but that was a personal taste.

If you are looking for hospitality and welcome I can highly recommend Jordan and Iran as travel destinations as well. Great countyside, history, cities and without a doubt the friendliest people you will ever meet. My wife agrees and cant wait to go back, especially to Iran.

In fact, we both agree, we have never felt safer or more welcome anywhere in the world than in any of the Middle East countries we have been to.

Keep away from the locally produced green label “Stella” in Egypt though. The gold label is fine, but the green is a real hit and miss beer.

Casablanca beer. Not bad at all. Flag Speciale is a bit how ya going…

Yes, absolutely wonderful.

Unless you’re a woman.
Or a homosexual.
Or a Christian.
Or an atheist.
Or an artist.

Any idea how Christians are treated in Egypt, since the muslims took over? Why not look into it before making us laugh with your naive fantasies about distant Utopiae.

Ah.. The Tasi?

Or the French area?

Moroccan rose brings out the taste of the desert. In fact, it tastes like sand 🙂

2%…..reminder the percentage of the population at the 2011 census that professed to an Islamic faith was 2%….

I am happier as the “no religion” crowd has jumped into 2nd place, when you divide Christianity into it’s component parts….divide and conquer!
