its not a a case of bigotry its honesty ignore the islamification of our country if you will. Its happening even if you appeasists ignore the facts so be it. As for muslims coming to watch Batley forget it . It wil not happen. Our ground is surrounded by thousands of muslim houses how many come ?. They will not pay i have been a supporter for 50 years Batley has always had a large muslim population unfortunately very very rarely visiting the mount. As for you BSJ its not vitreol its fact. The trouble with even discussing muslims in this country is unless you are saying nice things you are branded a racist. I still ask the question isnt 40 mosques enough ?.
Whether or not members of our Muslim population wish to visit the Mount is absolutely, utterly irrelevant to the original post and our situation as a whole. There are thousands of people in Batley who have never, ever chosen to support our club - the majority non-Muslim. 99.9% of the people on my street don't/have never supported Batley RLFC. What's the difference?
No-one minds anyone discussing Muslims/Islam, but if making the statement of 'sad times' in response to a post mooting the opening of a new Mosque isn't one that reeks of negativity, then I'm not what sure what is?
Demographics change over time. There are many Catholic churches in this area nowadays. 150 years ago - before the arrival of thousands of Irish Catholics, that probably wouldn't have been the case. Is this indicative of of 'sad times', in your opinion? If not, please explain what the difference is?
FYI, you may have noticed that we have a young Muslim fan who travels home and away - and has done for a number of years. If he uses this forum - which is likely, given his age, I wonder how he feels about reading some of the comments posted on this thread?
