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.

Victorian police will be monitoring Melbourne’s Federation Square on Saturday, when Rally Against Racism participants plan to occupy the space Reclaim Australia intends to use for its protest…

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

    They’re not Islamophilic, just Christophobic. Got it!


  • DD_Austin

    Atheist groups are just another braindead lefty group name, promoting the same old lefty causes and arguments under a false flag.

    Same goes for environmental, community and all and any “rights”* groups

    They’re all parasites, looking for a handout

    * except taxpayers groups

    • Justin St.Denis

      You forgot “social justice groups”. – another sham!

  • Ron MacDonald

    When are Canadians going to get off their butts and do the same?

  • Microaggressive

    Atheists will claim up and down that they view Islam and Christianity the same.

    The fact is that Atheists LOVE Islam and its tenets because Atheists want the ability to have zero restraint. Islam offers zero restraint against non-Muslims.

    Atheists are creepy and weird.

  • It’s good to see consistent and fair-minded atheists showing a strong front.

    Oh wait…
