This is the part that I don't understand, but having never been in Australia, I can't comment. I don't see how some foreigners came into this country and my county and imposed their beliefs on me. If anything, it's the secularists here who seem to complain about religious symbols displayed in public place. I don't give a damn if you display Nativity scene in front of the Supreme Court. But this also gives leeway to people of other faiths to portray their beliefs, and I am ok with that too, if they're not allowed, then it becomes hypocritical. What I wouldn't appreciate is some Jehova's Witness jamming some sermons and force me to hear it. Or for me to go a public court and forced take an oath using Bible or Book of Bodhidharma, etc, if I don't believe in it, it's useless for me to be subjugated.
However, reading that article, I find it very comical that the guy gets off from some Arab women taking her driver license photo with her face covered. Get a real issue! And if Sydney feels insecure about displaying their Christmas scene, then blame the law maker and law enforcer and their lack of backbone in this matter. Or some secularist liberal for that matter. But if they're brushing the entire blame off to the foreigners, well give them the same rights to display their beliefs, they'll shut up.
