The Klan show their true colours

beejay76 has been kind enough to send in the latest leafletting by the Concerned Citizens of Canberra (aka The Klan).

It’s nice to see that spurious objections to parking restrictions have now been replaced by “OH MY GERD THEY’LL KILL US IN OUR SLEEP”.

It’s hard to say though, are they objecting to just the one mosque to serve the spiritual needs of existing Australian residents and Citizens? Or are they now demanding we expel Australian Citizens in sectarian conflict?

I know who scares me more.

What’s Your opinion?

“It’s nice to see that spurious objections to parking restrictions have now been replaced by “OH MY GERD THEY’LL KILL US IN OUR SLEEP”.”

And good to see this doc has a date of 2009 – well before the mosque DA – and is from interstate too.
So, you can safely say the original ruse of ‘parking and noise issues’ etc has now been uncovered as just that.
Well, as least their true colours are out in the open now…

Flossie, that’s brilliant. A pasta restaurant called Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, so that it also has tax-exempt status 🙂 Who wants to go into business… I mean, religion…?

There’s a reason they called the second bit the “new testament”. Shame they let that bastard Paul in later.

there was no concept of hell until sweet Jesus, meek and mild, came along to the scene. At least in the old testament, when you were dead you were dead.

Most christians would run a mile from large swathes of the bible too.

which is probably why the book should be binned.

Neither would I, I think all religions have some particularly vile teachings, but, for mine, the biggest problem with Islam is that it has not been through a ‘reformation’

Interesting point. The most visible parts of it seem rooted in mediaeval times.

Discussion of many things are stifled currently by accusations of racism, or bigotry. It makes it very difficult, and, results in the loons going underground and festering away from the light.

There are a lot of problems with Islam that should be able to be discussed.

And anyone thinking that Islam is a ‘religion of peace’ would be well served to actually read the Qu’ran.

And there in lies the problem, all religion relies on interpretation. There are no ‘problems with Islam’ as such, but problems with how the teachings and so on have been interpreted over time, and which parts people chose to follow and which they don’t, just as with Christianity.

What people seem to forget is a lot of high profile clerics, even some labelled as terrorists by various authorities, said that 9/11 was contrary to the accepted interpretation of Islam. Some though said it was compliant.

I wouldn’t describe it as a ‘religion of peace,’ but I wouldn’t describe any religion as that. But then I also wouldn’t tar all in a group with the one brush.

Oh god, not this again.

Apart from Christianity, what religions have had ‘reformations’?

We can safely cross Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Shinto, Sikhism, Jainism, Bahai, Rastafari and Wicca off the list, as they’ve never had ‘reformations’.

So which religions are you talking about?

It is a shame that bigots make it impossible to discuss these problems without being accused of said bigotry.

For example I consider myself on the left of the political spectrum, I also hold the view that burquas should not be worn. If I espouse that view there is an assumption that it has something to do with prejudice, when it is infact I hold that view because I am opposed to prejudice – the prejudice against women that is prevelant in Islam.

Because Christianity has never been responsible for murder, violence, misogyny or anything bad.

Believe what you want, worship where you want with like minded folk, but don’t claim moral superiority of your preferred space pixie over any other space pixie. If we can have a Christian church then we can have a mosque, a temple, a restaurant with good pasta for followers of the flying spaghetti monster. Equal opportunity delusion.

And no doubt some people will swallow this tripe, come in sucker…

You can’t take an article that starts off describing Islam as diametrically opposed to “our peaceful way of life” seriously. If the crusades, colonialism and two world wars don’t disprove our way of life being inherently peaceful, more recent events in the world sure do, not to mention just looking couple of miles away from the Capitol in Washington DC where the murder and gun crime rates are some of the highest in America. And for every quote in the bible that speaks of putting people to death for everything from homosexuality to working on the Sabbath, I can serve up a Quranic verse saying how evil intolerance and war is.

Us and them mentality is just silly and causes more problem than it solves.
