    Yes... If you are 'man' enough to throw around the racist tag be 'man' enough to explain your reason... And leave it open to scrutiny.

    It's all good, I just wanted to clarify. So you're saying it was racially insensitive? Could you elaborate why you think that? I'm sorry if I sound thick, I am trying to minimise the misinterpretations that so often occur in such discussions.

    I think her statement - This is Australia- was what irritated me - an Australian Jew
    yes thankfully this is Australia - we have the right to practice whatever religion we want and no it's not always Christianity, election date does not bother me, I doubt it will bother many very religious Jews anyway as they would not vote on a Saturday to start with

    Shes deleted the comment now, but said she was over the constant crap of ourcountry pandering to minority groups.
    In my opinion.calling it crap when people try to ve culturally and racially inclusive displays great racial insensitivity.
    Its been quoted on the previous page if you care to go and read it again.

    Sorry i didnt see that post before I posted.

    I respectfully disagree. I agree 100% with what MummaOJ wrote and am disappointed the comments were deleted.

    If folks think the comments were racially insensitive then I suggest they are being overly sensitive.

    Wow, little old me seems to have upset some of the strong BH voices. Sorry. You don't know my race or religion, I have not portrayed what I was trying to say very well. Forget my comment and move on. Thanks.

    MummaOJ I'm not a strong BH voice but you quoted me. September 14 is Yom Kippur. I posted that because people seemed confused at the suggestion it was a significant religious date.

    As I said subsequently, i understand Australia is a secular nation. I also mentioned subsequently I thought the PM was unnecessarily glib when she compared Yom Kippur with the AFL finals.

    I don't think a person's faith compares with their football code, but I do respect we our a nation of many faiths. All of whom may vote.

    Yes I quoted you because I have never heard that word and don't know how to spell it, hence quoting (I am on phone). I have not seen the news so haven't seen the PM refer to the football game. Sorry again.
