It’s almost refreshing to see that America isn’t the only country with wingnuts ready to flip out over anything even remotely non-Christian. A new cabinet official there was sworn in on the Quran instead of the Bible and a whole lot of people lost their minds over it.
“Our allegiance should have been to Queen and Country first Ed. That means saying the oath on the holy bible not the Koran…. Shame, Shame, Shame,” posted one user, Ross Peace. “I am so disappointed in this government that they don’t have the spine to stand up for the Australian way of life.”
Another user, Therese Pearce, said she was “disgusted and embarrassed” for the Australian people.
“Hell i might just have to use snow white and the 7 dwarfs next time i take the oath for australia,” she posted.
One user, Anna Dean, claimed his decision to be sworn in on the Koran undermined “our culture and country and constitution in this way”.
Another user, Carrie Forrest, accused him of disregarding Australia’s constitution and pushing for sharia.
The cabinet official, Ed Husic, isn’t even a practicing Muslim, he’s just from a Bosnian Muslim family. But ZOMG, sharia law!
