Australia: Atheists slam group for Islam protest

Reclaim Australia will rally against “halal tax, sharia law and Islamisation”.

The Atheists Foundation says the protest is co-ordinated by Christian groups known for offensive and extreme claims.

While it doesn’t endorse religious beliefs, the foundation says it’s also against ignorance, bigotry, jingoism, racism, or xenophobia.

“It is fear mongering to even make the suggestion, or imply, that all Australians will one day live under Islamic religious rule,” it said in a statement.

Meanwhile, these same atheists are likely extremely hostile to Christians. I met a few like that. They know nothing about Islam.
