Default Re: Mark "No Religion" Campaign Begins - The 2011 Census

I know this is a little off topic..but I couldn't resist passing this very offensive email that I got sent the other day.

IMPORTANT

AUSTRALIA WILL BE HOLDING A CENSUS IN AUGUST

DO NOT LEAVE THE "RELIGION" SECTION BLANK. BE SURE TO AT LEAST TICK
CHRISTIAN (OR YOUR UPBRINGING FAITH).

1,000,000MUSLIMS WILL TICK THEIR BOX.

10,000,000 AUSTRALIANS WILL LEAVE IT BLANK THEN WONDER WHY A MOSQUE IS
BUILT IN THEIR NEIGHBOURHOOD!!!

Blind fear is a powerful tool indeed. Corrupts the weak and encourages the ignorant.

On the other hand, in the same time I got more encouraging toots, waves, shouts and thumbs up.
Bring back the good old days of draughty meeting halls, soap boxes, public demos etc :-)
