Quote for the Day II

"Before entering a mosque visitors are asked to take off their shoes. This is a sign of respect. If you have a strong objection to walking in your socks, don’t enter the mosque. Before becoming an Australian you will be asked to subscribe to certain values. If you have strong objections to those values, don't come to Australia," - Australian Treasurer, Peter Costello, proving that it is perfectly possible for Western leaders to defend liberal values.
