Aussies Say It Better (III)

Yet again, Howard Government speaks plainly, accurately and in a way that I wish many other politicians would speak: without being encumbered with Political Correctness.
"We live in a world of terrorism where evil acts are being regularly perpetrated in the name of your faith," Mr. Robb said at the Sydney conference.

"And because it is your faith that is being invoked as justification for these evil acts, it is your problem.

"You can't wish it away, or ignore it, just because it has been caused by others.

"Instead, speak up and condemn terrorism, defend your role in the way of life that we all share here in Australia."
That was from Andrew Robb, multicultural spokesman (ok, so the neologistic title is a bit PC) as noted on Instapundit .
The point here is that many do not wish to offend sensibilities. Crap! And look at the statements by the Pope! That was a ludicrous example of someone going nuts, taking the whole quoted passage out of context.
