Must say when I was a kid ( 45 years ago) very few people carried knives. Fists & the odd chair was about as bad as it got

Most Sudanese in Australia are Christian. This one may well turn out to be Muslim...but on a day where a white Christian slaughtered 12 of his fellow Americans..well, I wouldn't be blaming religion on either of them.

Middle eastern gangs started the knife craze - & Chinese triads went a step further with machetes. Soon caught on. Poor old David Carty (copper) had his ears & nose sliced off with a machete in Fairfield many years ago

Agree to a point, but one is a religion founded on and spread by violence. The other is the opposite.

It spread long before it became a political force.

Once again you miss the point. If you try to find only virtues in the religions you like, and evil in the religions you don't, history will subvert you time and again.

Christians did not give us freedom, society evolved and people woke up to the  control of power hungry churches.

I think you're saying the same as whale after you. Just No. Wrong. Chistianity formed the very views you hold sacred, and the right to believe in them. Look it up.

I agree with that.
Society woke up.
The churches committed too many crimes.
All forms of extremism are bad.
The first thing religions do, is tell you that you are a sinner, and the only way to be better, is through fear, and through their religion.
People woke up to the con.
Religions hijack the idea of "God", and turn it into a "brand".

I always say, church is a lovely place to sit in solace to think and pray, until the priest starts talking and ruins it all.
These days I go to parks, mountains, rivers.

Buddhism is just as F#cked, dont worry about that. They are all questionable.

All those people in the Christian middle ages had the "right" not to believe? You can't be serious.

I lived in London 1979 to 1984.  It was the most amazing place.  I just loved it.   Get out and about was so easy .   So many places to go, and see, and explore,   And do.  A seething mass of humanity and everyone happy and cohesive. 
Went back in 2011 and 2012.    OMG.   What a gelati hole of a place it was.
Spot the Anglo.    If you could find one you were a champion.   And down in the counties the lovely old English pubs were being taken over by the Polish, and most of them could neither speak or understand the english language,,,,which made for a few dramas. 
Village stores were all being run by Pakis,,,,
Oh well,,,carry on,,,call me racist.
But the great old englsih traditions were lost /taken over , and the traditions of the villages were being lost.
animals before people.

Came about because of tough gun laws. Life in prison for carrying a gun, death for using it. So crooks used knives instead.

I recall my mother taking us kids for a walk around the block after dark in summer. pre war ( she had 10 children ).
Safety was never a concern .
A small fist fight outside a pub made headlines.

Even today the crim code is deadly on crime involving children.

True

Not quite 100 years ago! ... there was hardly a Muslim to be seen back then, even in the Middle east ...
In reference to every post in the Trump thread ... "There may have been a tiny bit of license taken there" ... Ok, Thanks for the "heads up" PT!
