Geert Wilders Sponsors - The Q Society

Robert Spencer

Geert Wilders is being brought to Australia by the Q Society, so who are they?  This is from their website.

The Q Society of Australia is both vessel and umbrella for a group of dedicated individuals, either formal members or supporters. The Society is incorporated as not-for-profit association in Victoria, but members and supporters hail from all over the Australian Nation. While we come from many ethnic backgrounds and follow different religions, we are first and foremost unhyphenated Australians. Australians, who believe in the equality of men and women, a fair go for everyone and a civil and democratic society based on classical European foundations.

The American scholar and author Robert Spencer is international patron of Q Society. Many views Robert expresses in his writings, books and speeches on the topic of Islam and Islamisation are reflected by our members and supporters.

Our members insist the bedrock of this society must remain Judaeo-Christian in ethics and values on which our mainly Western European forefathers have built the Australian Nation.

We acknowledge the indigenous people of this continent and surrounding islands and appreciate their long relationship with this land. A unique island continent we now all share as Australians under one law and one flag. We equally acknowledge and appreciate the valuable contribution from those who came from non-European countries to respect, embrace and share Australian values.

Q emphasises all Australians must be free and equal before the law. Therefore we object not only to racial or gender discrimination, but also to favouritism based on ethnicity, gender or cultural/religious identification. Everyone is entitled to peacefully and lawfully practice any religion or spiritual belief, chosen of free will. However, we draw a line when a religious and/or socio-political dogma seeks to discriminate and impose rituals and customs upon others; when followers of an ideology perceive their own laws and customs to be superior to the Constitution of Australia and above the laws of the land; and when such followers demand apartheid and special dispensation incompatible with our democratic, free and egalitarian Australian Nation.

Consequently, we believe the further Islamisation of our Nation must first be stopped, and then reversed. Aggressive or stealth proselyting and brazen imposition by Islamic organisations and Islamic religious fanatics were our 'call to arms'. In upholding and defending Australian values, we use reasoned words and ideas, as well as political and democratic processes.

We will never resort to violence, the threat of violence, or the use of lies, profanity and insults. We offer our hand to anyone who peacefully and lawfully follows a religion as a matter of free choice, without imposing on his fellow Australians, or demanding special favours or seeking an elevated position in our community. As we likewise respect and welcome those who prefer to not adhere to religious belief at all.

In opposing the Islamisation of Australia; we stand against the creeping infiltration of this socio-political dogma and its medieval concept of religious absolutism and a society controlled by despotic clergy; against suppression of freedom of expression, against a tainted world-view that embraces segregated communities, discrimination and apartheid based on gender and belief; against the model of a parallel judiciary based on barbaric Islamic 'justice' and Sharia 'law', against large-scale inhumane slaughtering and animal-cruelty to comply with Islamic Halal rituals.

Let us be very clear: Islam is not an ethnicity and Muslims are not members of 'the Islamic race'. Muslims come from all races and ethnicities. Identifying as Muslim in Australia and other free countries is a personal, arbitrary choice. Opposing Islam is no more racist, bigoted and xenophobic than it would be racist, bigoted and xenophobic to oppose radical Communism, violent Fascism, or the medieval state church burning unbelievers on stakes.

In opposing the impositions of Islam, we equally oppose those who have been groomed to enable the spread of Islam in Australia by means of nihilistic multiculturalism, moral relativism and suffocating political correctness.

Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant. - Karl Popper (1945)
