@Rancid-Schnitzel said in The Failed policy of Multiculturalism:
Well look at it this way. Do you think people would be protesting a Hindu, Buddhist or Sikh temple or a synagogue?
That's not really making the argument for "rational" either. And it depends entirely on whether there is cause to or whether it is likely to harm someone
Particularly if you're in a community like Bendigo (pop 110k) that has a limited Muslim population (quoted as "over 300"), and whose plans for the Mosque passed through LGA and various tribunals all the way to the High Court of Victoria.
It has passed the test of Law. There is no recourse until they have proof that hate speech is occurring in this mosque.
Presumption of innocence is part of sharia law as well, incidentally.
I very much doubt it. So the question is why they would be against a mosque. Is it a phobia or perhaps something else?
I'd suggest, if they can't pin it down better than "something else", its closer to irrational. But I know what you mean.
If people aren't willing to give someone else a fair go, based on the actions of someone else who believes something similar to them, you're basically ripping the head off integration and shitting down its neck.
Another question for you Nick. Would you happily accept having a big mosque built in your street or in close proximity to your street?
If it wasn't breaching any Council laws, it would just be the same as any other place of worship to me i.e. retarded in my view, but hardly going to spoil my day.
Unless its blocking my solar panels
Spoiler alert: I live about 7km as the crow flies from one of the biggest mosques in Sydney (and therefore Oceania). But they're Adhmadi so they don't get the same rap as Sunnis running the other mosques.
