Meet Vickie.

Vickie is standing for the Senate in the current election, and has only recently stood up to be counted.

Since she's a Christian who is happy to tell people that she disagrees with sharia law, I suspect we'll be hearing quite a bit about her. She's already made the Australian Network News because of this:
A Victorian Senate candidate for the Christian Democratic Party says she wants to counter what she sees as the 'Islamisation' of Australia.

Senate candidate Vickie Janson says she supports religious freedom but Muslims need to integrate, and should not insist on exclusive facilities such as prayer rooms and toilets.

Ms Janson was speaking at the Christian Democratic Party campaign launch in the Victorian city of Bendigo.

She says the Federal Government is endorsing the Islamisation of the country.

"It's something that we can see in these government funded brochures, we see a presentation of Islam in our schools that just defies historical reality. You've got to question why would we be teaching these things in our school anyway, why would we be insisting upon a Muslim perspective."

This will no doubt upset a few of the luvvies because that doesn't sound very inclusive. She's got a point, though.

The Australian Islamist Monitor has done some investigation into the current push to include appreciation of islam in school curricula.

As I told my daughter's teacher, if they are going to include islamic studies, then I expect them to also include christianity, buddhism, hinduism, atheism and every other religion. It's about time the pagans got a shout out also, don't you think?

It was annoying enough when my girl came home in the lead up to Christmas back in Preps and asked me about Eid. Apparently they also talked about Hannukah, so I didn't make a fuss.

When it comes to sharia in Australia, Vickie has a handle on the topic, having spent years researching it in an effort to understand her muslim friends. What she learned also led to her writing a book about it, and obviously talking about it.

She's definitely someone to keep an eye on, and she's a lot nicer and more optimistic than I am - she's not even got a bodyguard!

(full disclosure: I have a copy of her book, and have started reading it, but am only a couple of chapters in.)

Atheism is not a religion.

I imagine people will point out that her paranoia about the "Islamisation of Australia" is just that. Hysterical, minority-bashing paranoia.

Fortunately the CDP has buckleys of winning any kind of seat, no matter how many anti-Greens ads they publish without admitting they're behind them.

Anon, are you sure that atheism isn't a religion? The way some people act it may as well be.

Jeremy, is it hysterical to point out people agitating for separation a la muslim only toilets, or prayer rooms when there are already facilities available for everyone regardless of creed?

Small accommodations merely acclimatise us for larger ones.

It's like some places providing halal food only. Even without the religious aspect, I find halal butchery barbaric.

While I'm also not big on kosher butchery, the Jews don't make demands that kosher be supplied at schools, kindergartens, hospitals and all the rest.

My girl's school provides halal food from the canteen, but since it also provides ham sandwiches and haram (or non-halal) food, I haven't said anything.

After halal food and separate loos it's onto women and girls being covered up (my daughter's school uniform includes a hijab in school colours), separation of boys and girls, and mandatory studies of islam.

As it stands, in the lead up to christmas 2 years ago, Magilla came home asking about Eid. This is several weeks before christmas, mind you, and rather than discussing the christmas story, they're playing comparative religious studies. Hannukah was also something mentioned as well as the Christian narrative.

That was in Preps.

On the other hand, Jeremy, next time there's a Hizb ut Tahrir meeting in town, why don't you come with me?

Hear how there is only one law, allah's, and it should rule above the Law of this land.

That would be an eye opener for you. :)

Hey, you left out the Jedi.

Atheism is not a religion. Atheists do not have to meet once a week to be reminded that God does not exist.

Hi Nilk

You haven't posted for a while, hope everything is ok.

Best Wishes

Things are going well, sfw, thanks so much. :)

There's such a lot going on with Scouts and school and sports, and that's before we get to my stuff - politics and religion - that finding the motivation to post, and then being able to decide on what to post is like putting an idiot in a round room and telling them to sit in the corner.

Seeing as I'm currently reading about the the rise of Hitler and the Great Heresies there's a lot of stuff to sink my teeth into.

Maybe another post on our favourite Benbrika could also be in order. I've not followed up on that one for a while.

Welcome back to your blog Nilk. I have visited regularly and wondered. It is good to see a woman with independent thought making her way through life and reading books that galvanise the mind, to the realities of the depravities that consensus of thought can sway the minds of millions. The majority of isms are dangerous; the one with la in the middle is by far our greatest danger to freedom.I do hope your child responds to TLC for our future is our children. Women per se are our future for they pass on to children attitudes and ideas far in excess to the men folk. We need more women like you Nilk.

Someone needs a little therapy, thinks I.

Australians are so concerned with being politically correct that they will be bred out of existence.

It is preached in the mosques to have as many children as possible. Soon, there will be nobody to outvote the islamisation and we will all live under a shariah society ruling.

More and more muslims are taking places in local, state and federal government.

If this isn't stopped, we are all in trouble.

Check the clips on youtube about the acceptance of paedophilia in islam. Mohammed was a paedophile. Muslims will say he married Aisha at 6 years of age but didn't consumate the marriage til she was nine. From when she was 6-9 years, he sodomised, thighed and molested her. Look up thighing.
Muslims think this is acceptible behaviour.
There are no moderate muslims. They just like to let you think that.
Trust me. I know these things first hand.
