    2012 isn't about British heritage and history.
    It's about sports.
    But foreigners coming here from all parts of the world would also like to see abit of British heritage and culture.

    Otherwise who cares which country holds the olympics? Next time hold the olympics in North Pole... :rolleyes:

    They might also like to see that Britain embraces other cultures, including theirs.

    I like to live in a liberal country tolerant of all faiths, and I have no problem with a massive mosque in London. Shame you don't like liberty.
    Liberalism doesn't create tolerance. Liberalism only works in tolerant/safe communities, not in Britain.

    PS: It's not like Islam is a tolerant religion. For one, Muslims absolutely detest homosexuality...And pigs!

    But that's our heritage and history, and Christianity is our nations religon. When foreigners come to watch the 2012 games hoping to see our heritage and history, they will get a big suprise when they see a massive mosque just sitting there.
    To be fair, Christianity is just another religion which came from the Middle East. (Abrahamic religions aye.)

    However, I do agree that it's become an ingrained part of our culture.

    If we want to stay true to our heritage, we should all be Pagans/Heathens!

    Hence the use of the burka, and the desire to perform 'honour killings'.

    Well we don't eat them (pigs, not homosexuals).

    And Christianity and Judaism don't really approve of homosexuality either.

    The burka isn't commanded anywhere in the Qur'an or even the hadith.

    And honour killings are pretty much forbidden.

    You obviously know nothing of liberalism to make a statement as ignorant as that.

    Thought for the day at The Ambler recently,

    We now live in a predominantly Christian country that is afraid to carry Christian images on its Christmas cards, for fear of causing offence. Or where someone who has traditional, honorably held, Roman Catholic views -- pro-life, anti-gay, the importance of the family -- is pilloried as unsuitable for public office. That is not a tolerant, inclusive society, celebrating diversity. It is merely replacing one kind of intolerance with another. We have moved from the tyranny of the majority to the tyranny of the minority.

    I disagree. The piano is either a musical instrument, and therefore an inanimate object which cannot physically 'suck', or an Italian word meaning 'soft', which suffers a similar problem.
    The BNP, however, being a collective of human beings, can suck.
    However, this is not a useful debate. Batazer, stop bringing up irrelevant objects.
