Religious tolerance is something that some parts of our society seems to frown upon, usually those same parts of society embrace ignorance. Here is a shining example of that ignorance.
Until now, I was blissfully unaware of the massive surge in Australians converting to Islam. According to some, there is an Islamification of the nation going on right under our noses. We are being brainwashed without our knowledge by these evildoers who are determined to convert the lot of us to Islam.
Some would say that this means the shock jocks were right after all.
Luckily for all of us, a Federal Liberal MP named Luke Simpkins has uncovered the cunning plan behind this Islamification.
In a speech to parliament last week Luke explained that even Coles and Woolworths had been infiltrated, and were unwittingly converting customers to Islam.
According to Mr Simpkins, what we don’t know is that the meat most of us buy at our supermarket is killed by Muslim tradition. This means it is Halal, but it is not labelled as such. Mr Simpkins wants to make the supermarkets put a Halal label on it meat so that customers have the choice whether to risk being converted to Islam or not.
You probably think I am joking, or exaggerating…. surely not even a Liberal MP could be this ignorant… Alas, check out these words from the man himself.
“By having Australians unwittingly eating Halal food we are all one step down the path towards the conversion, and that is a step we should only make with full knowledge and one that should not be imposed upon us without us knowing,”
‘The non-believers will become Muslims when, amongst other things, they eat the meat that we have slaughtered’. This is one of the key aspects to converting non-believers to Islam,”
He also complained that people could not buy meat for their “Aussie BBQ” without the influence of a “minority religion”.
If you still think I’m joking, here is a link to a news article on it.
As if there wasn’t enough fear being sprouted from the Coalition already. Frankly, we need a dose of religious intolerance like a hole in the head.
Mr Simpkins would be devastated to know that there has been Halal labelling on Mars Bars for quite a while now, and what would really scare Luke Simpkins to death is this article, which talks about the Halal labelling on Vegemite.
What I want to know is this…
Is Luke Simpkins really that stupid, or really that ignorant? Or, is this in fact Tony Abbotts campaign coming via a fall guy? Someone to take the heat, stir up some ignorant debate, and keep pushing the fear envelope…
This is either stupid beyond belief, or evil beyond words…
Or maybe Luke Simpkins has just had too many lunches with Cory Bernadi.Follow @madwixxy
