Email Insults.

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.
Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation’s mosques. Quote: ‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.’
‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom’
‘We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!’
‘Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’
‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.’
‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,
‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.’ ‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’
Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, American citizens will find the backbone to start speaking and voicing the same truths.
If you agree please SEND THIS ON…IF NOT, DELETE!!

I worry about the state of our country when I find things such as the one posted previous in my inbox. I get several emails a day preaching Christian beliefs and how they should be tied in with government, but let me remind you of a simple fact, one that I hold dear to my heart:

SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE
Now see, the things that you believe may be one thing, but this is NOT a Christian country! No matter how hard you try, you still have to coexist with people who share different beliefs! GASP! oh no! Muslims? God, save us all!
We good Christians killed the Native American’s in order to become the “Americans” that we are so proud to be.
So while I support everyone being able to speak English, I won’t support this (or Australia’s) right to push people away based solely on their “immigrant” status.
And this “backbone,” you wish you had…trust me, if you had it, you’d be shuffling away from black people on the bus, making Jews wear stars of David on their coats and burning mosques.
Let’s not, really.

We’re all transplants. We share the world. Let’s share our lifestyles and our love. Let’s end hate and discrimination….isn’t that what Jesus would do?

Oh, and by the way, I deleted the email. Perhaps I should have deleted this post, but I felt that it deserved some attention.
