Bloody hell. Religion and asylum seekers. Why couldn't you save this debate until I am able to have a glass of wine? (bub is still young and feeding whenever he wants).
Father can I ask a personal question?
Are you of aboriginal decent?
If not get off your bloody high horse and be thankful your ancestors were allowed in this country.
Seems like you don't like anyone's answers very sad really and it appears to me you are fishing for an argument.
I have another idea lets build a rocket ship and send people to the moon. It can be voluntary, those that think we're full can get first dips on tickets. Plenty of space, great views.
A video for a little perspective.
Yes - there needs to be a cap, 13,500 isn't it as evident by most other countries in the Western world who are worse off than us but taking more than us. NO, I can't put a figure on it, I'm not the PM and don't have access to all the things you'd need to make a decision on it. :roll eyes: Please don't think for one moment that the Libs are interested in any asylum seekers, they aren't and it is quiet clear that neither are you.
And so what if he was an Architect what is your point? Or can't architects be persecuted? Oh right, that's good to know, maybe we should send word around the world- become an architect and you won't be persecuted. Awesome, Father just single handedly may have saved millions of people.

“We want justice and we want human rights organisations to follow this killing,” the 46-year-old teacher said in a phone interview that was facilitated by a translator. “All he wanted was to have a better life – he was an intelligent young man with productive years ahead of him and he would have been good for the Australian economy.”
Mr Far's comments in this regard will be read in some quarters as justification for the bipartisan political support for toughening of Australia's asylum policies in recent years.
Explaining that as many as 20 local men had taken the people-smuggler route to Australia in recent years, the teacher said: “People here are really worried for the men they know who are still on Manus Island – and nobody wants to leave for Australia now.”
Asked if they were political refugees or, as Canberra insists, economic refugees, Mr Far opted for a third adjective, offering this explanation of family needs and youthful aspirations in rural Iran: “Reza was not a political refugee – he was a social refugee.”
Explaining that Reza was the eldest of his siblings, Mr Far said that the young mad who had trained as an architect had particular responsibilities to his family. “He had a duty to look after them and this was why he went to Australia – to get a job to help them financially,” he said.
Father, I've seen you've demanded others to answer your question yet you have over looked answering mine.
You asked what the cap would be, you've asked it like a thousand times - that questions is unanswerable to anyone but those that have information for all the things I've listed, i.e. the sustainability of the country and inhabitants including anyone we take on as refugees. Really not that hard Father..I am surprised that that you don't understand that. That is the question I was answering.
I will answer for you. You make yourself clear over and over, it isn't like it is a big secret or something.
Re the Reza case, yep - and that is one man. You clearly have NO idea what goes on in Iran. They are accused of breaching human rights on every level, and they still publicly put gay people to death.
