    Body count 49 at the moment . Happened at two mosques. They have arrested 4 people, one been a ex ausie. Really turned things up side down here in Christchurch.

    I have spent quite a bit of time in NZ and my sympathies go out to your country.

    There is a thread in the P&R section in the subscribed forums. One of the bigots asked me about anti-muslim views in NZ and I told him they weren't anything like what he experiences in New York, City. Can you shed any light on the way it is in Christchurch??? Would you mind if I repost your comments in P&R???

    This is the result of 'validating' any sort of bigotry - gives every idiot the chance to pursue their own manifesto.

    Good call by Ardern to NOT show or publish any of the footeag, manifesto - shame the media and others didn't respect this request.

    You do realise a headcovering was standard for any bereavement in Christian churches less than 50 years ago? It's a sign of respect - I would still wear a hat or scarf to an elderly Catholic person's funeral even though I'm a non-believer.

    One shot has her ON THE STREET wearing a head scarf. She's overdoing it.

    Exactly - I wouldn't enter a Hindu shrine wearing leather shoes (or some other circumstances), a mosque or a Buddist temple without being modestly dressed etc. Even at the big Catholic cathedrals in Europe which are more tourist sites than temples, I would never enter in shorts, bare arms, use my phone, talk loudly or take photos. I don't beleive in any God, but RESPECT is owned to any believer.
