The retweets by Cathy Stoner included: ”A MESSAGE TO ALL MUSLIMS THAT THREATEN AUSSIES?! If you don’t like our freedom/democracy GO BACK TO WHERE U CAME FROM!!!!”
Another stated: ”Muslims can have 4 wives, stoning, beheading, genital mutilation, honour killings all in the name of Allah? Yep, religion of peace, I get it.”
A separate message on her Twitter feed declared the ”Multiculturalism experiment is dead”.
Mr Stoner said his wife was not a public figure but a private individual who was entitled to her opinions.
”She should not be wrung out by the media as she has been for the past two days,” he said.
”I am a public figure and will defend what I say and do, but she will not be commenting.”
