Bibles more 'dangerous' than nuke plants?
'They don't fear the danger of radioactive material spilling all over Malaysia, but treat the Bibles as if they contain radioactive particles.'
Malaysiawatch4.blogspot: It is common for scholars of religion to study the different religious holy books in order to understand comparative religions but most do not change their religions. Even if they did, so what?
In fact Malaysians as a whole could benefit if our schools provide a short term course on 'Comparative Religions' that will give young Malaysians a basic understanding of the main religions in Malaysia. That would benefit us more than the current quarrel over 'Interlok', which should belong to the trashy novel section.
So if a few Malaysians decide to change their religion, is it a national calamity? So much publicity has been generated by the inept stance of the government that some curious Muslims might want to browse the forbidden fruit.Now we can understand why the government needs so many civil servants. They are doing useless and unproductive work by stamping the 5,000 Al-Kitab. In fact their work is worse than useless as it creates religious disharmony and unrest.
Of course, the minister is too arrogant to engage with the BSM (Bible Society of Malaysia). He does not need to as he is 'Malay first'. Better collect those defaced Bibles soon or he will wave his keris
