Want a mosque next door?

If you don’t want a mosque built next to your place, we suggest you fill in the question asking about your religion in the August census. Do not leave it blank, because the nation’s 450,000 Muslims won’t miss their opportunity. At the very least insert ‘Christian.’
My concern about the upcoming census is that it now over reaches and they have changed it so everyone is required to identify themselves whereas before it was supposed to be anonymous. There are many areas of this that do not seem in keeping with the Census act of 1905 which states that the census is purely to gather numbers of people in households to indicate/guide infrastructure needs etc. This new online census sounds more like a United Nations information gathering task. Tony Abbott was looking at dropping the Census before being back stabbed by PM TURDbull but now with the TURD in charge the range of the census has grown beyond what should be asked. Mind you the moslems in Australia have requested to be exempted but the bigger mosques are asking them to fill them out (or parts of) so that they can apply for further funding…as if they don’t already get enough tax payer money. One only has to google Australian Census 2016 to get an indication of the over reach coming.
