Long story cut short

There's a suburb in sydney (australia) where there was a proposition to build an islamic school, there was uproar in the community so the council knocked back the proposition.
Now the catholic church wants to build a school in the exact same spot and the community is supportive.

I am really ashamed to be part of this country, it's truly sickening.

anyway, to give this thread a point, What's your opinion, and or do you have any similar stories.

A thread about being shamed of a country, and it's not the US? And it's Australia?! You won't see that ever again.

well you shouldnt be ashamed, its logical that there are more catholics in that suburb then muslims so it makes more sense to put a catholic school there than islam. Unless there is more behind it and people are being discriminating against islams, which you didnt say.
#10

Or maybe the community is mainly/more Catholic than Islamic and wanted a Catholic school?

First of all why be ashamed of an entire country because of one incident. Secondly, maybe the locals didnt want jihad recruitment going on in their neighborhood? Regardless of whether or not the said school was associated with terrorism, the people are entitled to their opinions however wrong they may be.

That's the thing, that suburb has one of the largest muslim populations in australia, but because a few 'real australians' don't want it, it doesnt go ahead.

Garrett,
Same here. I'm Catholic and am supportive of all other religions too. Its like anything, something happens once and the sheep say bahhhhh. They believe that if one does it all do it. Its what drives racism in America, unfortunately. Hopefully one day the world can overcome this type of behavior and I am an optimist so I say one day but then again, humans are, ugh, stupid. I definitely think its a shame that they didn't let the Islamic temple become a part of the community but unless someone or multiple people voice their opinions this type of discrimination will always exist. Good Luck.

Peace,
Lank

they hear islamic school - they're thinking brainwashing kids into becoming terrorists.

Even though I believe in God and think that any (or all) of the three religions from Abraham are right in some way, I'm against faith schools. I think people should be taught about all beliefs and made to make up their mind on their own instead of trying to indoctrinate people with one faith and essentially making them into a mindless tool.

If I lived in a racist community I would feel ashamed of it. It doesn't matter that their entitled to their opinions.

You have no ****ing idea what Jihad is do you, for summary, there are two forms of Jihad, the personal war inside ones self to better yourself.
The second is defence of Islam as a religion, people who are terrorists misinterpret things.

EDIT: we have also had lots of other examples of racial violence, such as the Cronulla Riots.

Chances are, almost all of the children attending the Islamic school would be Muslim. Seeing a non-Muslim attend an Islamic school is probably a rare sight. I could see why they would want a Catholic school instead of an Islamic school.

And this has what to do with my post? no need to attack me with your pseudo-intellectual bullshit when nowhere did i claim to be explaining Jihad. If you looked at your own post you would see that the second type is obviously the one im referring to. Also note that i am expressing the way the people in the community might see it, i am not trying to accurately summarize an entire faith.

lol maybe the Islamic shit gave them a idea? ever think of that. also i wouldn't be surprised if the council members were thinking of putting a catholic school there but before they could propose it someone beat them to it. well there going to be fair and let the community decide but no one did, and its just a coincidence that it has to do with religions.

Seriously if a god started everything then what started this god. If people are gonna have this kind of logic then 'Bunman greated god, super spagheti man greated bunman, john petrucci greated super spagheti man. Its just going to go on and on. Why does everything have to be created?

In this country, the council doesnt propose these things, an individual or corporation does, then the council has to approve it or deny it permission to be built, it was purely community pressure that stopped it from being built.

This is the exact mentality why people discriminate against muslims.

Its only a very small handful amount of such school which brainwash kids n all. And you find such schools in pretty much every religion.

Most islamic school just teach about god n the way of life n things like that. They're peaceful n no harm to the society.

People should seriously stop looking at muslims as terrorists!
