Oz Christians Say "No Muslim School Here"

Christians? have been working towards this for the past decade in Australian schooling — Christians trying to block the establishment of an Islamic school. A group calling itself the Christian Camden Ministers’ Fraternal submitted the most extraordinary objection to the Land and Environment Court claiming an Islamic school in Camden would be an attack on Australian values.

The Fraternal leaders from local Catholic, Anglican, Presbyterian and Baptist churches and schools — warns Camden it will go the way of our 'Sydney Mecca', Auburn, Bankstown, Lakemba and Liverpool, where the predominantly Muslim community seeks to dominate public space.

Christian churches and communities have benefited from government generosity - meaning us tax payers - to establish hundreds of Christian faith industry schools over the past years, many publicly funded up to 80 per cent, but apparently Muslims should not, and in my opinion none should whatever their denomination.

What is laughable is that everything the ministers say would go wrong if an Islamic school is established, is already happening in many communities because of Christian faith industry schools.
The main concern seems to be an Islamic agenda of social change — as if a rash of school building by various Christian faiths had no such agenda.

This is preacher-speak for a dire future for Camden where Christians will cower as jihadist take over the streets.
Most residents of Camden are in blissful ignorance that the Christians were in charge of the streets to start with.

But the downside of having many new faith-based schools is already with us. Local public schools and communities are suffering as various faiths, mainly Christian, build as many schools as possible with as much public money as possible, often in areas that will not sustain them, and this trend will continue as long as the reluctance for intelligent former Christians refuse to believe that the almighty made dinosaurs about 50,000 years ago

Catholic Archbishop of Sydney Cardinal George Pell - This goofy guy - a rightous 'Foot in mouth' lamented his archdiocese schools do not educate their share of children from low-income families. But he also called Islam the new communism’’ and claimed secular democracy is an emptiness, predicting it will be "filled with darkness".
Out of a 21 million population, only about 1.5 million Australians regularly go to church, any church.
So I guess about 19.5 million of us will be in the emptiness together waiting for the darkness to descend.

The submission contained much fear about what might be taught in Islamic schools. But no one knows a lot about what is taught in any faith-based school, as checks are minimal and often limited to viewing written programs.

But, rest assured, Islamic schools do not teach the fairytale that the world was created in six days 2000 years ago — as 200,000 Australian children are taught today in evangelical Christian schools.
These include 'God made fish and He made them on day five’ and dinosaurs from a biblical perspective.

One non-religious objection to the Camden Islamic school by the ministers was, there are other independent schools in this area which are well short of full enrolment. And that might reveal the biggest Christian fear of all.
Mind you, some Muslim organisations are not helping. On the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils website, where you can find a directory for Islamic schools, one reason given for women to wear the hijab is that in ‘ ancient Hellas’ prostitutes and female slaves were forced to go bareheaded and unprotected against being accosted.

I mention this like many of us to ensure both Christians and Muslims are offended and will equally accuse me of stirring up religious animosity.
I would like to ban the building of any new faith industry-based school. But expect more of this nonsense until governments return to making public schools a national priority.

Sat night joke.


Drink Driving...THIS is absolutely brilliant! Only an Aussie could pull this one off!

A true story from Mount Isa in Queensland.
Recently a routine Police patrol car parked outside a local neighbourhood pub. Late in the evening the officer noticed a man leaving the bar so intoxicated that he could barely walk.

The man stumbled around the car park for a few minutes, with the officer quietly observing. After what seemed an eternity and trying his keys on five vehicles, the man managed to find his car, which he fell into. He was there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off. Finally he started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a fine dry night). Then flicked the indicators on, then off, tooted the horn and switched on the lights.

He moved the vehicle forward a few metres, reversed a little and then remained stationary for a few more minutes as some more vehicles left. At last he pulled out of the car park and started to drive slowly down the road. The Police officer, having patiently waited all this time, now started up the patrol car, put on the flashing lights, promptly pulled the man over and carried out a breathalyser test.

To his amazement the breathalyser indicated no evidence of the man's intoxication.

The Police officer said "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the Police station - this breathalyser equipment must be broken."

"I doubt it," said the man, "tonight I'm the designated decoy".

AUSTRALIAN ETIQUETTE

IN GENERAL

1. Never take an open stubby to a job interview.

2. Always identify people in your paddocks before shooting at them.

3. It's tacky to take an Esky to church.

4. If you have to vacuum the bed, it's time to change the sheets.

5. Even if you're certain you're included in the will, it's rude to take your ute and trailer to the funeral.



DINING OUT

1. When decanting wine from the box, tilt the paper cup and pour slowly so as not to bruise the wine.

2. If drinking directly from the bottle, hold it with only one hand.



ENTERTAINING IN YOUR HOME

1. A centrepiece for the table should never be anything prepared by a taxidermist.

2. Don't allow the dog to eat at the table, no matter how good his manners.



PERSONAL HYGIENE

1. While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this should be done in private, using one's OWN ute keys.

2. Even if you live alone, deodorant isn't a waste of money.

3. Extensive use of deodorant can only delay bathing by a few days.

4. Dirt and grease under the fingernails is a no-no, it alters the taste of finger foods and if you are a woman it can draw attention away from your
jewellery.



DATING

1. Always offer to bait your date's hook – especially on the first date.

2. Be assertive. Let her know you're interested: 'I've been wanting to go out with you ever since I read that stuff about you on the dunny door two
years ago.'

3. Establish with her parents what time she's expected back. Some will say 11:00 PM , others might say 'Monday.' If the latter is the answer, it's the
man's responsibility to get her to school on time.



THEATRE/CINEMA ETIQUETTE

1. Crying babies should be taken to the lobby and picked up after the movie ends.

2. Refrain from yelling abuse at characters on the screen. Tests have proven they can't hear you.



WEDDINGS

1. Livestock is a poor choice for a wedding gift.

2. Kissing the bride for more than five seconds may cause a drop in your popularity. (Excessive use of the tongue is also considered out of place)

3. For the groom, at least, rent a tux. A tracksuit with a cummer-bund and a clean football jumper can create a tacky appearance.

4. Though uncomfortable, say 'yes' to socks and shoes for the occasion.



DRIVING ETIQUETTE

1. Dim your headlights for approaching vehicles, even if your gun's loaded and the roo's in your rifle sight

2. When entering a roundabout, the vehicle with the largest roo bar doesn't always have the right of way.

3. Never tow another car using panty hose and duct tape.

4. When sending your wife down the road with a petrol can, it's impolite to ask her to bring back beer too.

Obviously the last two blokes to comment here have little idea and a complete lack of understanding with regard to the present post. I would hazzard a guess they would be among that 19.5 million Ozstrayuns who have no faith industry affiliations.

It has now stopped bucketting down with rain for the past four hours. We are now off to the club, here's to you all "cheers".

I'm not really approving of religious-based schools, but here if you send your kid to catholic school you pay separate taxes for it.

No SEX since 1955.....

A crusty old Marine Sergeant Major found himself at a gala event hosted
by a local liberal arts college. There was no shortage of young,
Idealistic ladies in attendance, one of whom approached the Sergeant
Major and asked, "Excuse me, Sergeant Major, but you seem to be a very
serious man. Is something bothering you?"


"Negative, ma'am, just serious by nature."

The young lady looked at his awards and decorations and said, "It looks
like you have seen a lot of action?"

"Yes, ma'am, a lot of action."

The young lady, tiring of trying to start up a conversation, said, "You
know, you should lighten up a little. Relax and enjoy yourself."

The Sergeant Major just stared at her in his serious manner.

Finally, the young lady said, "You know, I hope you don't take this the
wrong way, but when is the last time you had sex?"

"1955," he replied.

"Well, there you are. No wonder you're so serious. You really need to
chill out! I mean, no sex since 1955??!"

She took his hand and led him to a private room where she proceeded to
'relax' him several times. Afterwards, panting for breath, she leaned
against his bare chest and Said, "Wow, you sure didn't forget much since
1955."

The Sergeant Major said in his serious voice, after glancing at his
watch, "I hope not; it's only 2130 now."

(Gotta love military time)

Muslim children have been attending state schools for tha last 60 years. They have been suffering from Paki-bashing and bullying. Majority of them have been leaving schools with low grades. They have been leaving schools without learning their cultural and linguistic skiils. The result is that they do not know where they belong. They suffer from Identity crises. Now Muslim youths are victim of terrorism. Thousands of them are being searched in streets and hundreds of them are behind the bar without any trial.

Bilingual Muslim children need state funded Muslim schools with bilingual Muslim teachers as role models during their developmental periods. There is no place for a non-Muslim child or a teacher in a Muslim school.

There are hundreds of state and church schools where Muslim children are in majority. In my opinion, all such schools may be designated as Muslim community schools.

Bilingual Muslim children need to learn and be well versed in standard English to follow the National Curriculum and go for higher studies and research to serve humanity. At the same time, they need to learn and be well versed in Arabic, Urdu and other community languages to keep in touch with their cultural roots and enjoy the beauty of their literature and poetry.

A Muslim is a citizen of this tiny global village. He/she does not want to become notorioulsy monolingul Brit.
