There's many things that are not a matter of life and death you wouldn't want to let go. Freedom to choose... your washing machine, iron, when you can cook, what you can cook and hair colour. Just because it doesn't impact you, doesn't mean it doesn't matter. What about all the Bintang employees? What about those that aren't Muslim like the Balinese? It's not a matter of life and death if you are forced by law to dress in a burka is it?

Indonesia isnt 100 percent Muslim, they have significant minorities who enjoy a drink. This is about imposing Islamic values on the whole population.

As last two have said, it's not about the alcohol per se, it's about  religious authoritarianism.

Yep.

The only problem is, this means that all those bogans that go to Bali to get pissed night after night might end up staying in Australia for their holidays.

And the Balinese are impoverished because their tourism industry is extinguished.

Bali is a tiny part of Indonesia, what it means is that we have a country on our doorstep becoming increasingly more radical and discriminatory towards their minority population. If this was happening in a white country you would be screaming your head off about it.

Greg hates Bali and the Australians who go there so he'll be happy. Mothra doesn't even want to go to the same airport as  Australians on their way to Bali.

I'd welcome it with open arms if this was happening here in Australia,

And that's coming from someone who loves his beer, wine and spirits.
