Seriously! You really think Muslim immigration is nothing to be concerned about?

Then you must be looking forward to the day when you can take the family to watch these Muslims parade down Yonge Street in downtown Toronto as they exercise their freedom of religious expression and add to the the cultural mosaic that is Canada.

To be clear it is Shia Muslims who do this and they shouldn't be confused with the other 70 odd sects of Islam. They are celebrating the Day of Ashurah, that is if you call that celebrating. Wouldn't it be a triumph of multiculturalism to have that as a Canadian national holiday, to be televised on the CBC as we watch these fellow "Canadians" crack their skulls and the skulls of their children open? Multiculturalism, Sieg Heil!!!

Seriously folks what civil minded Canadian wants to tolerate that? I don't and I don't want to see it in my country. There are limits to multiculturalism and this Shia celebration is way past it. However, how can we stop it? Isn't it their Charter right to religious expression? How about their children? What right do we have to intervene? If we do then isn't that an overt declaration of cultural intolerance and superiority? After all, doesn't multiculturalism restrict us to cultural relativism, where all cultures are equal and deserve unconditional tolerance? If so then who are we to say anything negative about Ashurah festivities let alone stop it on Canadian streets?
