Two Letters

...not found on the word Australia are "O" and "Z". 

So why do they call it Oz?

If antipodean issues of such consequence concern you then you should be aware that the Island Continent's burgeoning Jedi demographic is becoming something of an issue. Yes, it appears that a certain subset of Atheists is upset that a large number of individuals are declaring Jedi as their religion on their census forms which they claim hurts them....somehow. 

The AFA is concerned that if the government tabulates more people as religious, they’ll aim policy and tax dollars that way, instead of accurately serving the atheist percentage of the population. 

Wait.What? Does the Aussie government have separate homeless shelters and scholarships for various categories and degrees of belief that strictly segregated?

Why is this a problem? 
Well...funny you should ask. 

You see, three days after the 'tweet' in question, the Chinese Government concluded that they didn't have enough people upset with them over Scarborough Shoal and felt it necessary to announce that the CCP frickking HAETS Australia!

 Analysts say that besides trying to please the US, it also intends to suppress China so as to gain a bargaining chip for economic interests. China must take revenge and let it know it's wrong. Australia's power means nothing compared to the security of China. If Australia steps into the South China Sea waters, it will be an ideal target for China to warn and strike.

Other than a brief introduction and the concluding threat to sink RAN vessels, the rest of the piece by the state run paper is mostly a series of insults directed at the Aussies. 

Now some people might suggest that the stories are unrelated and that China's threats are a part of the ongoing territorial disputes, having nothing to do with the Jedi controversy (or abbreviations).

However, I leave you this to ponder....
