Almost half of refugees in Austria think religious law is more important than that of the country in which they live, according to a study published today.

The study of 900 migrants, by the Austrian Academy of Sciences, found 40 percent of migrants thought their religion always took precedence over secular laws.

A similar percentage thought Western people were too liberal in their lifestyles and had too much freedom.

  1. Anyone who breaks the laws of the land for the sake of religious laws should be sent to a penal colony in Syria to work on rebuilding that country.

    men and have the same rights they believe women are only there to be raped
    have babies so they have young kids to rape
