Australian Cultural Conservative Relies on Muslims

734.jpgThe Sydney Morning Herald carries an interesting story today, "Topless ban to protect Muslims and Asians: Nile." The "Nile" is Fred Nile, an ordained Methodist minister and a member of the New South Wales parliament for the Christian Democratic Party, who argues that, to protect the sensibilities of Sydney's Muslim and Asian communities, topless bathing by women should be banned from NSW beaches.

Australia's reputation as a conservative but culturally inclusive society was at risk of erosion by more liberal overseas visitors, he said. "Our beaches should be a place where no one is offended, whether it's their religious or cultural views," he said. "If they've come from a Middle Eastern or Asian country where women never go topless - in fact they usually wear a lot of clothing - I think it's important to respect all the different cultures that make up Australia." The practice was at risk of raising the ire of Muslim men in particular, Mr Nile said. "I don't want to have any provocations or disturbances on our public beaches," he said. … "I think if you survey Australian women you'll find a lot of women would be uncomfortable if it became the custom [to be] topless at the beach," he said. "Australia's always been a conservative country as far as beachwear goes. Once being topless is accepted as lawful the next question will be why can't women go totally nude on a public beach and I don't think Australians want to go down that pathway."

Politicians generally responded by noting that beach practices are an issue for local councils to decide, not state governments; and that they have not heard complaints about topless women. Further, an informal SMH on the topic finds 7 percent agreeing with Nile about a general ban, 10 percent agreeing to a ban on some beaches, and a whopping 83 percent against any sort of ban.

Comment: (1) The Vatican has made common cause with the Iranian regime on sex issues, but this is something different - whereby a Christian minister uses purported Muslim views to forward his own cause. Is it a one-time event or the beginning of a trend? (2) Whatever its importance, it amounts to dhimmitude. (December 30, 2008)

Dear Friends, it is indeed shameful that a so-called minister should demand for banning topless sunbathers based on not offending muslim sensibilities rather than on the christian principles of christian purity, chastity and modesty. It was Our Lord and God Jesus who taught us purity by word and example as he is the Holy One of Israel. On the other hand it was the pedophile mohamed who taught the muslims to marry young girls as he had married aisha when she was just six. He also married the wife of his son-in-law, slept with a dead woman as have been mentioned in the books:"al sirra al nabawiya"(the biography of the prophet), "Nissa'e al nabi"(The women of the prophet) and the "Al Tabaqat al kobra"(the high classes) may our Lord and God Jesus Christ open the eyes of the so-called ministers to the power of God's Word and to the truth of Christian purity.
