    ``This is a country, which is founded on a democracy and according to our Constitution, we have a secular state,'' Costello told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. yesterday. ``If those are not your values, if you want a country which has Sharia law or a theocratic state, then Australia is not for you.''

    We need someone to stand up for the United States and do the same thing. In accordance with our rules and laws. England is outlining what is terroristic speech, Australia is doing this....

    But here we are, thanks to the ACLU and the like.....

    Good move Australia, it's nice to see them in the lead on something rather than following us.

    Australia, like all other countries, enacts policy based on its own needs. They do not follow the US. Based on the outcome of worlds events and American popularity, about the last thing that happens is that countries follow the US. Countries do not have friends or allies, they only have interests.

    these are some true sentences...
    Every country has to do its own policy. They made this move because of inner-politics to show an sign, not to please someone abroad, i think
