Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Do you support a non racist, secular approach or not? Up until recent times, the immigration issue was simpler, but now it's not. It is not a binary choice. As I was saying - we must leave labels aside - now who do you want in this country? Those who practice those things or not? - We should be abl...

I am confused as to you actual position. Do you support a non racist, secular approach or not?
His actual position as stated in this thread is "only Christians should be allowed to come to Australia" with a figleaf excuse about integration.

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

'Secular' can become another 'free ticket' for abhorrent behaviour for immigration - do we really want immigrants with belief systems of polygamy, child marriage, FGM, suppression of women, etc, here in Australia? It is hypocrisy of the highest order to (rightly) condemn the actions of certain (cri...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

I'll rephrase for clarity. We need to defend secular immigration from bad actors here or from Dutton, and we need to find the political will to finally get secular education.

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

We don't. A disproportionate amount of school funding goes to the big religious schools, and non-religious schools have religion and priests thrust upon them or face a funding penalty cut. (via Abbott's grotesque chaplaincy program)

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

We already have experienced a corruption of local law by religion, but nobody seems to be talking about the catholic police who aggressively covered up reports of catholic paedophile priests. For some strange reason, everyone involved on the Christian side wants to point fingers at any other religio...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

I don't think he's saying that any discussion of immigration rates is racist. He's saying that people who have come out and said only white christians should be permitted to come here are racist. That checks out, because it *is* racist. Similarly, the dogwhistling about Europe being "destroyed" (you...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Beat the racist drums. The destruction of Europe. There used to be a Europe and now it’s a smoking crater. Look at the Netherlands. Used to be a country there and then some Muslims immigrated from a country the Dutch invaded and occupied and if you go there today, nothing but dirt and the occasional...

Re: Help needed with the science of heat.

Metal will transmit heat. They all do. Plywood or a really high temperature plastic would be better bets. Radiative heat is fast, contact is faster. Convection (hot air) is pretty slow. Carbon fiber isn’t heatproof last I checked. Ceramic would be great but is obviously brittle. I’d actually suggest...

Re: Opting out of MyHealthRecord scheme by 15th October

But the minister went on radio shows and lied about that. We have to listen to what he said before his embarrassing backdown, right?
