AUSTRALIANS HAVE FLOCKED to the streets of Lakemba to protest after the City of Canterbury Council approved plans to build a Catholic Young Men’s Society club in the predominantly Islamic suburb.

There were ugly scenes outside the council offices before the meeting with more than a dozen police officers on hand to keep protesters in check.

Despite strong community protest from some residents, Canterbury City Council voted in favour of the Catholic community centre in Lakemba 8 votes to 5.

A Catholic church was recently approved in the area this month to serve the region’s growing Christian community.

Locals have expressed their seething anger at the Council, saying that they don’t want Catholics living in their suburb.

“I don’t want these wine-sipping child-molesting sickos living near me or my family,” says one Haldon Street business owner.

“Catholics fail to assimilate into other cultures. They form ghettos and build their own clubs like this f**king CYMS bulls**t.”

Saint Patrick’s Welfare Association Inc secretary Paul-Martin O’Leary addressed the council meeting on behalf of the applicants said he was disappointed to see the scenes outside upon arriving.

“I was sad that when I arrived here tonight to see what I did outside,” Mr O’Leary said.

“Catholic people are doctors, nurses, engineers, they work in the public and private sectors,”

“Please do consider that we don’t want to disturb your way of life. This Catholic hall is a multicultural example of Australia,”

“This country is our home, and we’re exactly like you.”

The Catholic Young Men’s Society on Haldon Street is expected to be constructed in two stages with the first stage of the development including the construction of 400sq m hall that will include a kitchen, toilets and other amenities.





  1. If this is true then there is no hope for our country. If this is allowed I will have to leave our country because I couldn’t bear that our Government can allow it.
    Even Rusia has banned the burqua. They are not religious and have no place in Australia. They are also a security threat and scary for our children and not last they don’t promote peace and openness for mixing with other people.
    Who can say “hello” to someone they can’t see? And they dare to criticise our country where they came of their own free will??? Disgusted.

  3. Omg, that’s outrageous, the predominate Islam community is protesting against a catholic building being erected in their suburb. Sounds like this suburb needs a reminder that it is in AUSTRALIA not fricken the Middle East. How dare our Government let this happen, it’s time they completely shut the door to ISLAM and its immigrants. This is just the beginnings of what our Australian future looks like …..”

    • Yes Bronwyn you are 100% correct. Have a look at England, Europe, Germany the Netherlands, we Muslims have taken over, here in Australia in the western suburbs of Sydney. Now I s the time to stand up for our children’s children.

    • They can protest all they want, We already have Holy Spirit College which is a catholic co ed high school in the heart of Lakemba ,with up to 1200 students , we also have a Catholic church and a catholic primary in school in Lakemba, These 3 institutions have been around for the last 100 years, way before the muslims set foot in Lakemba. They can jump up and down all they want. Us Catholics are not going anywhere !

  4. This is Australia and Catholics have been part of Australia since white man arrived here, please build the catholic young mens centre, Muslims living here have no right to try and interfere and stop this going ahead.

  5. Since when did Lakemba become an Islamic suburb? A more racist rant I have never heard! This is a big nation that accepts people who come to live her as citizens. Any one can build if they have to approval of the Council. Shame on you and your greedy selfish manners Lakemba people.

  6. Australia is a Christian country. If the muslims don’t like that then they should go back to the war torn shitholes that they came from. I guarantee nobody would miss the filthy, child molesting scum…

  7. Just who do these Mullahs think they are? they Molest children as well form their own ghettos build their own Mosques & schools, They don’t assimilate into the community, will not tolerate other cultures or religions. They are the most intolerant IDEALOGY on the planet, they promote rape,slavery,beastality, the oppression & beating of women, forced marriages of women & children & murder in the name of a false god, they think they are above our laws they are trying to enforce Sharia on none Muslims not to mention the great HALAL extortion scams, that is what we don’t want in Australia but we are forced by our very own spineless Government to tolerate their savage barbaric evil murderous behaviour they have one mission to take over every other religion until there is just one,THEIRS & everyone is in danger & so is our way of Australian life. What is life going to be like for our future generations under Muslim rule just take a look at the other Countries where they have taken over every where Muslims go rape,murder & chaos follows we MUST all unite & purge this evil Idealogy & those that follow it from our Country or we are ALL doomed & so are our future generations.

  8. How dare these people who come to our Country and tell us what to do and how displeased they are. How dare they.
    Instead of being grateful to live here (where they chose)in our lovely Country they have the gall to tell us they are not happy with OUR decisions.
    And who doesn’t assimilate? The Muslims, going around covering their faces and expect us to say “hello” when we can’t even see who we are talking to. It’s not religious, they chose to live in our Country so they obey our laws.
    I couldn’t imagine going over to another Country and tell them what to do. I would try and follow their rules as I am the guest and my decision.
    So if these people don’t like our way of living then please go so we don’t have to put up with you anymore.

  9. It’s this the same diatribe that we ‘bigoted boguns’ in penrith just got called racist for?? Because we don’t want Islam in our predominately Christian community?? Where was ANTIFA for this ‘racist’ protest??? This is Australia, no Iraq, Syria, Lebanon or Palestine!! This is a Christian land built by Christian hands!! Don’t like it?? Piss off then!!

  10. What the bloody hell is wrong with this Government,cant they see what has happened in countries that these muslim vermin have infested? I hope we get someone in Government with enough spine to do something about it. Of course if they do the muslims will riot like they always do, it’s inevitable, that is the time to come down hard on them, treat them in the harshest manner, hand them a heavy fine, jail them, deport them, this Government is too lenient when it comes to muslims…………….

  11. If the government let’s violence against Catholics which is the home of this country then these crooks are our enemies. Start sending them back to their countries before they start adding in numbers and taking over suburb after suburb.

  12. Wow I have grown up in this district for years if the goverment does stop this they are morons fact is although lakemba is predominantly Muslim there are many other races and a lot of people from the inner west are moving into this area. Hey if your not happy there are many country’s that follow Islam and don’t have Catholics or Christians go there.

  13. One rule for them one for us mentality it sounds like? this is Australia not the middle east! Catholics or any Christian sect deserve a place of worship in this multicultural society how dare they talk down to us?

  14. If there is an upside to this article and event then it is the fact that it highlights the absolute intolerance of islam and the filthy, uneducated, child molesting, un-Australian, attitude of those who have been brainwashed into this pathetic pseudo religion. What a bunch of disrespectful, dole bludging, unappreciative, freeloading, criminal trash they are.

  15. This story seems like a load of crap intending on fueling distrust and animosity. The article cited no sources, I’ve searched Saint Patrick’s Welfare Association Inc on the ATO & fair trading website and it doesn’t exist. I’ve asked a mate who is a senior police officer in that area command and he knows nothing about it. The picture of police and protestors is an old pic from a whole back and I’ve check canturbury city council’s development applications and news of developments on their website and there is absolutely nothing listed for this proposal.

    Churches, Mosques, Cathloic school, Father Riley’s Youth off the streets program have all have co existed harmoniously in the canturbury and bankstown area. I do much community volunteer work in both areas and speak from first hand experience.

    I’ll contact the council on Monday to again verify the story but it looks like it’s crap to cause division.

    • Thank You Feroz, For your investigations so far. Please keep us informed as we did Post this ‘Story’ on our Face Book Page titled ‘Stop The Mosque’. There is so much to report on the activities of those whose purpose is to inflict Sharia and Jihad on others that we endeavour to old reproduce actuality. There is so much intimidatory and incitement activity from supporters of the founder of Islam that the credibility of this story slipped past us. I shall really appreciate hearing your findings directly. Please either Post directly onto ‘Stop The Mosque’ or email James Darby Administrator.

  16. These people have no right to say what building should or shouldnt be built. This country is for everyone. We had to approve their stupid ass buildings and etc . So let them built the catholic youth its not their area. Stupid ass people

  17. Cut ALL Muslim welfare, see how long it takes them to riot. Use the money we’ve saved to send them back from whence they came, beautiful countries no doubt where Allah serves them very well in the paradise they have planned for Australia.Our governments will soon learn the thoughts of the “majority” but it will be too late for the governments.The left and the Greens will be decimated for their treason. Victorians are clearly mindless morons voting in Labor, the error of their ways will soon be apparent. Sometime in the next decade or so we will see for the first time, a non Labor or Liberal government, there will be a party for the people, not self serving nest feathering, politically correct scum we have destroying our once magnificent country. For the sake of our future, this has to happen, unfortunately, it will take a terrorist attack on our own soil to “wake up” most Australians. This death cult, halal and any trace of their evil bible should be eradicated from our shores.

  18. Round up EVERY Muslim, ship them out, and send them back to where they came. Why is it that everyone else here can get along and integrate and show respect but these pricks think they own and rule the world. It’s about time our limp arse government hardened up and got rid of these mongrels. They are vermin and scum of the earth. They need to take a serious look in the mirror before criticizing others that do good in this world and ask themselves what they are contributing to world peace. F@#k off and go back to where you came from if you don’t like here.

  19. You go Jennifer I agree , Australia is the land of free will here religion is a choice it is not a law or compulsory to follow, here in Australia we get to make our own choices, choose a path and live our lives how we want to, as far as Muslims go bring back hitler from the dead he will show em because I have seen not 1 single person stand up for us Australians to banned Muslim rules and force them to live our rules the same way if we were to go to their country, let’s just start puttin Christian pie shops and centres in Middle East at see how they react, if no one stands up for us then I guess we might as well be Muslims right.

  20. Muslims must understand that in Australia, with its Christian roots, Christmas trees, churches and religious festivals, religion must remain in the private domain, as such Australia has a right to refuse any concessions to Islam and Sharia.

    For Muslims that disagree with Australia and do not feel comfortable in our Nation, there are 57 beautiful Muslim countries in the world, most of them under-populated and ready to receive them with open halal arms in accordance with Shariah.

    If you left your country for Australia and not for other Muslim countries it is because you have considered that life is better in Australia than elsewhere.

    Muslims need to ask themselves the question, just once: why is it better here in Australia than where you come from?

    The answer is Australia was raised with a Christian history.
    Not a Sharia one. Pays to keep it that way

    Islamic State of AFGHANISTAN, Republic of ALBANIA, People’s Democratic Republic of ALGERIA, Republic of AZERBAIJAN, Kingdom of BAHRAIN, People’s Republic of BANGLADESH, Republic of BENIN, BRUNEI-DARUSSALAM, BURKINA-FASO (then Upper Volta), Republic of CAMEROON, Republic of CHAD, Union of COMOROS, Republic of COTE D’IVOIRE, Republic of DJIBOUTI, Arab Republic of EGYPT, Republic of GABON, Republic of The GAMBIA, Republic of GUINEA, Republic of GUINEA-BISSAU, Republic of GUYANA, Republic of INDONESIA, Islamic Republic of IRAN, Republic of IRAQ, Hashemite Kingdom of JORDAN, Republic of KAZAKHSTAN, State of KUWAIT, KYRGYZSTAN Republic, Republic of LEBANON, Socialist People’s LIBYAN ARAB JAMAHIRIYA, MALAYSIA, Republic of MALDIVES.

    In Australia live Australians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Australia, to work and eat in Australia, should speak English, and should respect the Australian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslims then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law. Australia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Australia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’. We will not tolerate disrespect of our Australian Christian culture. We had better learn from the suicides of Bali, America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Australia. Australian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims. When our Parliament thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Australian national interest first, observing that the Muslim minorities are not Australians.

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” –Marcus Tullius Cicero

  21. Australia is not a Christian country, it is a secular country. There is no national religion. All religions should be equally respected. We shouldn’t be ruling out any places of worships, or community organisations that are run by religious groups. People come here because we enjoy freedom that people in many other countries don’t have. We don’t enforce religion, or politics. Don’t let ignorance limit that freedom for anyone who lives here.

  22. @Jane Australia was and has NEVER been made secular.
    To be legally defined as a religion in Australia it has to belong to a Christian denomination, which accepts the Holy Trinity as GOD! Not the Pagan idol Moon-god Allah!
    It’s not taught in school, but Australia’s Constitutional Monarchy places us under a legally defined God – the Christian God, whose compound redemptive Name is Lord Jesus Christ. Following the opening words of the Preamble to our Constitution, “Whereas the people of…”, comes the clause: “…humbly relying on the blessing of Almighty God…”

    According to our constitution and law, all our legislation and its administration is to be interpreted in accordance with the Ten Commandments and the Bible. This excludes non-Christians from political input (including citizenship). Clearly, those who now have most influence in this country are people with no love for Jesus Christ, or the Holy Bible.

  23. Alright people, do you really think this article is genuine? Do a google search on It is not exactly The New York Times!

    Just in case you don’t get it, it is a piss take.

    I haven’t laughed so much in a long time
    I always had the impression that as Australians we have a fairly high Intelligence we are worldly and generally well read. That is until I read some of the comments posted about this article
    Obviously there are some gullibility chromosomes missing in some people in the evolutionary gene pool of this great land we call home.
    I really hate to spoil it for you guys having a rant and making me cry more tears of laughter but Beroota are absolutely fabulous at taking the piss

  25. This is a disaster !! One has to thank the likes of the Greens, Gillard, Clover Moore who have deemed this country as Non Christian and now there is a void the Muslims think it is theirs.

    WHY should the Catholics EVER have to justify themselves in this Country (and I am NOT Catholic)

    All these Muslims who protested should ALL be locked up !! SIMPLE.

    But our weakness at as a Society and political correctness has lead to this.

    They see us a weaker than them and that’s why they think they can act in this way.

  26. Guys, come on!! This article is taking the piss. It’s trying to make the case that Australians are (shock, horror) based towards tehir own Western culture.

    “…AUSTRALIANS HAVE FLOCKED to the streets of Lakemba to protest after City of Canterbury Council approved plans to build a Catholic Young Men’s Society club in the predominantly Islamic suburb…”

    If it was true – that paragraph would read “…muslims holding Australian pasports have flocked to the streets of Lakemba to protest…..”

    The author obviously and disingenuously tries to equate Catholicism (and Chrstianity) with the violent pseudo religion Islam.

    There’s no need to. People can see on their nightly news reports the massive difference between Islam and Christianity (or any other religion or philosophy).

    Virtually all islamic majority countries persecute their nonmuslims in some way. Which group of sub humans favours behaeading for non-offences?

    Virtually all terrorist acts wrldwide are carried out by the 10% of the most devoted muslims who have no problem killing other people (especially non-muslims) so that they curry favour with their angry bedouin desrt based moon god.

    Look at the effects of islam on tose societies to see whether it is beneficial or not.

  27. Wether this is true or not this is the way Australia is heading. True Aussies are fed up with the likes of these people coming her and telling us what we can and can’t do. If the Government don’t start putting a lid on the shit that is going on this country it is going to go down fast. I fear for all the children born in the last 15 years because these are the ones that are going to suffer as adults if this shit is allowed to continue. If you come here to live you need to abide by the Autralian laws. If you don’t like what this beautiful country and people have to offer go back to the hell hole you came from!

  28. The racism and arrogance of Australians in full flight here. Anyone with half a brain can see the satire. But I’m guessing 99% of those making comments don’t know the meaning of the word.

  29. what I have a problem with is when they want to change our way of living. The reason the majority of Muslims move here is because of our welfare system, and financial opportunities. it is sad what is happening to Australia, we will end up with ” No Go Zones” like the UK and France. Another thing about the Muslim community is that they always play the victim, generally for there own benefit. Our ancestors would be horrified at what our government is allowing. And I know I’ll think twice if I have to fight for my country because of what it’s becoming.

  30. Glory be to Jesus Christ and we ask jesus christ to make his presence in lakemba and overthrow satan, demons, evil enemies from there!. Let the holy spirit of jesus christ and jahweh come to lakemba.

  31. For the life of me, I cannot believe that you lot – with few exceptions – cannot see that this is a piss take. One of the best I’ve ever seen.

  32. Its a sad state of affairs in this country we are living in , I have seen the best of Australia, the government needs to lift its game
