Free speech doesn’t exist in Australia.  The Bristbane Times is reporting the ACT Parliament has passed a religious vilification law.  Under this new law, people who vilify Islam can result in a criminal conviction and a fine of up to $7500. The law was passed after The University of South Australia had found about 10 per cent of Australians were “highly Islamophobic.”

“It is clear [Muslims] are frequently, almost constantly, exposed to discrimination, vilification and targeted offensive behavior” – Liberal leader Jeremy Hanson

Hanson also claims the law will protect other religions from discrimination like Christianity, as well as anyone with a disability or disease. One must wonder why the law includes protections for other religions and disabilities if the focus of the entire study the law is based on was on Islam. The liberal politicians mentioned other religions and disabilities probably so that people didn’t complain, they obviously have no interest in protecting them or they would have included them in their study obviously.

One must wonder with the way things are going back here in the states when such a law will be passed here. While we contemplate that, many of us will come to expect that we now live in a time where if such a law was passed in America it probably wouldn’t surprise many of us. So long free speech, you were quite the blessing when we had you.

Australia’s problem is the same as America’s and Europe’s: They’ve chosen fickle finite man’s capricious traditions over Yahweh’s unchanging moral law, in this instance, the First Commandment. They will consequently reap the fruit of their crimes: “The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. He shall lend to thee [and worse], and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail. Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed;… Read more »

Sarah Connor: “One must wonder why the law includes protections for other religions and disabilities if the focus of the entire study the law is based on was on Islam. The liberal politicians mentioned other religions and disabilities probably so that people didn’t complain, they obviously have no interest in protecting them or they would have included them in their study obviously.” Instead of wondering whether or not they should be protected, how about wondering what The Almighty has to say about it ?? It’s articles like this that get people to look at the wrong issue and then look… Read more »
