Q&A: Is it safe for U.S. citizens to visit Australia?

Question by Anonymouseezz: Is it safe for U.S. citizens to visit Australia?
There’s this Yahoo Answers Australian user, Edvard J or something like that, on the religion category and every other answer he has he’s putting down Americans … “Americans are uncivilized” … “Americans are thick” … “Americans aren’t welcome in Australia” … etc, etc, etc. I mean, I guess I shouldn’t care what ONE guy thinks, but this guy is level 7, one of the top contributors in multiple categories and he has dozens of fans. I frequently see comments on here from Australian people saying Americans should accept socialism, ban guns, etc, and that we’re stupid for not being like Australia or whatever. The other day, I was viewing this article on an Australian news website that was comparing this American “tea party” group to the KKK (outright lie), and the comments to the article were ridiculous “America is a Christian theocracy”, “Americans need to be stereilised”, etc, etc, etc.

On THIS category I see comments saying Americans are all stupid, Americans are too conservative, that Obama is stupid, that American Democrats are comparable to some racist group in Australia … WTF? I don’t see any of this sort of stuff on other travel categories.

Can someone explain what the deal is?

And the reason I ask is because I plan(ned) on going to Australia with two friends, but I feel anxious about going now and quite honestly feel like I’d rather not go after seeing all the animosity on here. I haven’t told my friends about this, they don’t use this site or even the internet much so what would they know, but I don’t feel comfortable spending so much money on a trip to the place if that’s how it is.

I do think I have a right to be concerned, considering how much $ $ $ it costs to get to the other side of the world.
Ashlee, if you’ve been taught in school that the U.S. is *still* testing nuclear weapons in the Pacific Ocean (we’re not) and you’re presented Michael Moore movies (biased with a political agenda) as pure fact … then the issue is obviously worse than I thought. But thanks for the insightful answer anyways.

As long as you aren’t rude or insulting towards their customs, and you follow their laws, you shouldn’t have any problems traveling anywhere, keeping in mind events of war, or civil unrest.

ChristianLoveToys.com Launches to Provide Married Couples with Safe Christian Sex Toy Shopping

Riverside, CA. (PRWEB) August 12, 2009

Christian sex toys and adult novelties!? With the acclaim and support of many ministers and initial customers, Christian Love Toys recently launched with the mission of providing “A Safe & Sexy Place for Christian Married Couples to Shop for Sex Toys and Adult Novelties”. The site establishes that Christian sex should be spicy and exhilarating for married man and woman as God intended according to His design. Many sex toy and intimacy products can be safely enjoyed within the context of the Christian marriage bedroom (living room, car back seat, kitchen, etc).

Traditionally, the shopping experience for sex toy products can be overwhelming, awkward, embarrassing, and is plagued with a plethora of pornographic imagery. Christian Love Toys solves this by not selling any pornography or products with pornographic packaging. Also, all orders are quickly and conveniently shipped directly to customers’ homes in discreet, non-descript, plain brown packaging.

Christian Love Toys carefully selects a wide and rapidly growing inventory of fun and sexy toy products for married couples to enjoy together. The product selection includes silicone and water based lubes, textured and flavored condoms, feather ticklers, board & card sex games, erotic dice, blindfolds, massage oils & lotions, and more. The store also maintains an extensive inventory of massage vibrators, which includes bullet vibrators, egg vibrators, mini vibrators, G spot vibrators, waterproof vibrators, and others in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors.

A recent passionate customer testimonial says it all “I can’t believe I finally found a site like yours with sex toys for Christians! If I could hug you, I would! You delivered exactly what you promised! I really appreciate what your company does; you really do provide a safe place for my husband and I to shop for fun sex toys and vibrators without all those filthy ads and gross products. Our newly purchased Hitachi Magic Wand massage vibrator was shipped quickly, and we love it! It’s time Christians take a stand against porn and other degrading materials while letting the world know Christian married sex can and should be hot ~n~ spicy.”

Through the end of August 2009, Christian Love Toys is running a few specials, free shipping on orders of more than $ 50 or $ 4.95 flat rate shipping AND a FREE mystery gift ($ 6.95+ value) with purchases of $ 30 or more.

Christian Love Toys encourages all married couples to review Site Guidelines before and during their online shopping experience. The Site Guidelines provide information on how to browse the selection of love toys and marital aids, while still appropriately serving and submitting to God and spouse. For example, the Guidelines instruct married couples to pray and shop together, while always respecting each others’ comfort levels.

To avoid any potential misunderstanding by the general public or Christian peers, the store has prominently posted a notice on the home page “You cannot solve a boring, unfulfilling, irrelevant, or failing marriage with sex toys, fantasy, and novelty! True marital intimacy is the result of seeking a deeply personal relationship with Jesus Christ and actively living out His teachings from the Bible. Focus on intentionally serving and appropriately submitting to your spouse… pray together, read the Bible together, attend & serve at church together, join a small group / Bible study together, seek accountability, plan date nights, and grow through intentional relationship. The products and resources at Christian Love Toys should be used to complement, not replace a Christ-centered marriage.” The store also maintains a page dedicated to directly addressing Common Criticisms.

Married couples may view the store and selection of sex toys, adult novelties, and massage vibrators at Christian Love Toys. Special packages are available to churches for marriage conferences, marriage retreats, and marriage getaways

Is it safe in Jerusalem?

Question by a.mcdonough: Is it safe in Jerusalem?
I’m an American and have always wanted to travel to Jerusalem. I understand Israel and the United States have a good relationship, but as for the people and their sentiments is it still safe to travel? I never thought about it until my girlfriend recently had concerns with me going there alone to visit the historic Christian sites. I apologize for my ignorance to the subject.

Best answer:

Answer by ?David?
No, its not entirely safe. If you do travel to Jerusalem and if you go and sit in one of their cafes, you could be the victim of a terrorist attack. Often times, Palestinian terrorists will try to hit a target such as a small cafe, etc. I learned about this after having watched a youtube video with Henry Rollins. You could always go to youtube and type in “Henry Rollins in Israel.”
