OP:Mennrimiak and Spanish bans are now unnecessary and racist
Over the last few months there has been a radical change in Strathae and reversal of policy. We had 15 years of the extremist politics of Blairite politicians. The damage done was inclaculable and we understand why there were concerns before. It was wrong that Catholics were targeted and doxxed and Reitzmen were, don't get me wrong I'm not saying the Catholic Churhc does not need change whether its child abuse, anti-women policies and anti-lgbt policies there are issues that certainly need fixing and do agree catholic values among others are incompatible with liberal Strathaen values. Values that mean we treat the LGBTQIA as no different indeed it was only recently words for Lesbian, Gay , Trans Gender and Bi-Sexual were developed in our langauge, our culture has always maintained love is love and gay love is no different but it went too far. The doxing , the egging was too far , the campaigns against catholics to remove it from the country was and is too far but that is no longer the case.
We have overturned the anti-catholic extremism balancing religious rights and LGBT and womens equality with new laws under the new coalition. The new coalition has extended privacy, libel and anti-doxing laws though arguably maybe too far with broad reaching implications on investigative journalism though maybe this could be reviewed in the future to balance things a little more when it comes to freedom of press and speech and privacy. Also of not fines are not the first course of action for first time offenders anymore but a culture of leniancy and cautions is developing. I honestly don't see what more can be expected of Strathaes new government , it would be unfair to expect the government and our people to abandon all cultural values and our expectation of tolerance and acceptance and full civil rights for all regardless of LGBT and gender identity. At this point one can only conclude the advisories and bans on strathaens as well as explusions of our citizens in Spain and Mennrimiak were not done on security concerns indeed there is no longer security concerns extremism is being dealt with. The banning of a whole group of people based on nationality has one name racism , its that simple. Thewy are judging a whole group by the actions of a few extremist Blairites and a minority who are extreme far right but that does not represent most Strathaens who overwhelming rejected the PoT under Blair's most extreme politics by 62% to 38% and furthermore rejected it again in the leadership contest of the PoT electing the most liberal and progressive PoT leader in decades leading to a split in the party. Indeed polls show that barely 10% support Blairite extremist factions, yes polls also show 65% are suspicious of Abrahamic religions but its not like they don't have good reason to be , unfortunately many denominations have not helped themselves with their homophobia, imperialism, anti-women policies and in many cases theocratic tendencies over the years and their involvement in anti-LGBT and womens rights campaigns though we must stress this is not all churches with the Inquistan Orthodox and ICS church being good examples of liberal churches and reformed Judaism and Conservative Judaism. But does this make most bigoted or extreme? I would argue no, one can oppose the ideas and branches without opposing the people and ordinary members and that is the case in reality most are taking issue with the institution. In summary its unfair to treat all of Strathae as if its extreme when in reality its a small percentage probably equal to Duchies level if you look at polling figured on extreme right parties in elections, to say all Strathaens are a threat is just naked racism especially when most who move abroad and go overseas are from the more moderate side of Breizhighism. Imagine the condemnation if Strathae banned all Catholics and Muslims or all Mennrimiak or Spanish based on "security" concerns just because some are homophobic or some vote Vox or some far right party or are involved in fascist street orgs . The world would not have it and quite rightfully so it would be unfair, racist and generalizing a whole nationality , that is not a European value.
