Oh yes, now that you have seen a cross (sign of Christianity), you are officially a Christian.
LOL, yeah, that’s bullshit… but it’s something very real in Malaysia in which some belive such things does exist.
To be honest, I have never heard any Christian, be it a priest, a pastor or jut the guy next door, ask fellow non-Christians to join Christianity. In fact, I take pride that we Christians do not need civil laws or constitutions to keep our population as we continue to grow in harmony and solidarity.
I have always believed that in Malaysia, there is religious freedom, but it is over-rated by many standards. The Malaysian constitution, particularly Article 11 needs to be reviewed to enable better tolerance and understanding among Malaysians which are from all walks of life and religion. The government should also ensure that what is written in the constitution is not only written, but also practised in real life.
The raid on the Damansara Utama Methodist Church (DUMC) for me serves as a sign of disrespect towards the Christian community by certain quaters. Claims of proselytising are mere bullshit, if you ask me. On top of that, reports said there was no warrant, not a proper complaint. Wait, so JAIS is more powerful than the police?
Sometimes, I ponder of why we Christians, despite our very best effort to show so much respect, tolerance, understanding and love are still subject toward abuse and mistreatment. Almost everything we do, seems to be bad and wrong. Now, even having a thanksgiving dinner with our Muslim friends seems wrong. Please correct me if I am wrong, but doesn’t that just show how some of us want us to be dis-united by faith?
In Sarawak, they want to enforce harsher punishment for those caught doing something againsts a certain religion. Do we really need moral policing for something which is based on our very own faith? I also wonder why is there so much focus on humiliating a person for not adhering to their own faith?
I just don’t get why some people are so insecure of the strength of their own faith. Practicing your religion should be by your choice…. but I guess that’s in any other country except Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and maybe Malaysia.
FACT: Did you know Christians are killed and jailled in Pakistan for practicing their religion?
