Australia Leads The Way
Weak-kneed sissy boys need not apply

I'm not one for the e-mail rumors that float around. You know... the ones that make grandiose political claims that you know are too good to be true. Namely because the claims necessitate that a politician require an actual backbone with accompanying valid set of testicles.

The e-rumor in question today is one entitled "Muslims Out of Australia!" And while this e-rumor doesn't state that each and every moslem living in The Land Down Under is to be forcible removed, this does make some of the following claims...

1. Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia...

2. Treasurer Peter Costello hinted that some radical clerics could be asked to leave the country if they did not accept that Australia was a secular state and its laws were made by parliament. "If those are not your values, if you want a country which has Sharia law or a theocratic state, then Australia is not for you."

3. Education Minister Brendan Nelson later told reporters that Muslims who did not want to accept local values should "clear off". "Basically, people who don't want to be Australians, and they don't want to live by Australian values and understand them, well then they can basically clear off," he said. [from what I understand, "clear off" is Ozzie-speak for "get the hell out, and don't let the door hit your ass on the way out"... or words to that effect]

Well, guess what. It's true. The good folks as snopes.com have verified the authenticity of this and have posted references.

Now if we can just get those idiots in Washington to use the same common sense that the Ozzies obviously have.

That'll be the day. It might cost them their precious re-elections. Thank God for ozzies!

We live in a modern, feministic, all-inclusive, touchy-feely world. A backbone and testicles are politically incorrect. ;-)

I hope that the Australian Christians are able to muster the political willpower to regain control of their country before it is too late. Time will tell if this is all bluff-and-bluster.

Babs,
You confuse the Islamic literalization of their so-called "theology" into their civil and criminal law, and the Western basis of Christianity into our laws.

Quite a difference, hon.

Gauf-
Don't expect the Australians to do much. They sat on their hands while the gov't confiscated and destroyed all their guns. So not only to they lack the will, now they lack the means.

FAB,

I know. I watched it happen to them in utter disbelief... although I wonder if we Americans really would've handled the situation any differently.
