On Aus­tralia Day

The Weekend Post - - Views -

I’m not say­ing that when the white man came to this land and didn’t com­mit atroc­i­ties to the na­tives, but are we not sup­posed to be God-fear­ing peo­ple and, if so, why can’t we live by the fol­low­ing re­li­gious say­ing: “To err is hu­man, but to for­give is di­vine”. We are sorry over and over, so when are we go­ing to be for­given for things done in the past. Why can’t we all live to­gether in peace and har­mony in­stead of hold­ing a grudge for years and years?

Gav, Red­lynch (10/1). We are all Aus­tralians, so why should 98 per cent of us change recog­nised dates and flags to pan­der to 2 per cent of the pop­u­la­tion?

You can change our flag, spit on it, change Aus­tralia Day date and that won’t change any­thing. There are in­dige­nous com­mu­ni­ties out of con­trol with drunk­en­ness, ir­re­spon­si­ble par­ents and abuse of women and chil­dren. Don’t you think in­dige­nous crit­ics would pre­fer to fo­cus on these is­sues first? We are one.
