by the time that happens, and I'm being generous in assuming it will happen, you and I will both be long dead of old age. Societies never remain stagnant. There are lots of things you grandparent would complain about in todays society that was better 'in their day' ... that's life. The alternative is a moribund society that gets left behind.

So, if getting left behind means that we adopt an Islamic theocracy, then that would be acceptable to you?

Augie, no comment from you on Cannon Law. Bit more topical than shadow boxing with Sharia, don't you think?

Mothra, that is a false equivalence. There is no global organization that advocates the establishment of a Christian theocracy and totalitarian state, which I don't support either. Islamism is real and whilst most Muslims don't subscribe to the Islamist project, and significant minority do, particularly conservative Muslims.

If the Islamists had their way, Mothra, you wouldn't enjoy the freedoms you have today.

I'm presenting a hypothetical here: if progress meant that Australia eventually became a Islamic theocracy through organic and progressive means, then by your opinion, this would be acceptable, wouldn't it??

So, if a majority of the people voted in favour of deporting all people of non-white background, you would support this policy even though it infringes on the rights of Australian citizens? According to your logic you should.

Does that mean you don't have any principles?

you seem to think accepting the decision of the majority mean I support the position. Every day I'm forced to accept the decision of the inept govt. we have in control, the last thing they have is my support.

You said "if the majority have said what they say, what's to say they shouldn't have it?" If the majority voted to deport non-White Australians, should Australians just 'have it' to use your expression?

I'm not conceited enough to think my opinion is more important or influential to how this country should be run than that of another 51% of the population. Whether I liked the decision or not, if the majority decides to 'deport all non whites' than I guess that's what would happen.

surely you understand how democracies work?


as a side note, I've always felt that if you have to take your point to the ridiculous to make it, you never really had a valid point to start with.

Yes, that is how democracy works. But, I'll tell you this, John Smith. If the Australian population ever voted to make such decision and I was in government, I would ignore the will of the people and protect the rights of the lowest among us even at the point of the bayonet.

Sometimes the people don't always make the right decisions, John. The government's job is the protect the rights and liberties of the people.

The Catholic Church has no intention of establishing a Christian theocracy and totalitarian state. Got any evidence that they are actively trying to do so?

By the way, I'm not particularly a fan of the Catholic Church.

I won't do your homework for you.

What does paedophilia in the catholic church have to with its goal to establish global domination?

I think you're obfuscating, Mothra.

Islam isn't coming to me. Islamism might. Do you support an Islamist state, Mothra? Would you like to be forced to wear a head veil?
