I manage a not for profit Christian mission, The seafarers center, in my job I have daily men come here from every nationality on the planet, I am many things a racist is not one, so bear that in mind when reading this post. I am dismayed at the loss of identity this country faces for the sake of "multiculturalism". I welcome others from cultures and countries where it is unbearable for them to live, through poverty, oppression whatever. What I don't welcome is when a minority of them arrive they think we should follow the same beliefs and cultures. If you come here, it is because for whatever reason your homeland didn't quite measure up. We have a culture here based on freedom of expression and what really gets under my skin is when kids can't celebrate xmas in classes, or the easter bunny just in case someone else is offended. Bad luck, you came to our country embrace OUR culture, by all means retain yours, but live as we do, not as you did before you came here. I have no problems with retaining national and religious costume, but don't dare ever make Australians feel dirty about how we dress, it is our choice the same as you. And customs and laws from other countries are just that, from other countries, leave them there
