While Christians Turn The Other Way...

... others try to create tensions.

From DAP calls Utusan’s Christian Malaysia report a ‘dangerous lie’

Utusan had carried out a front-page article today titled “Malaysia, a Christian country?” (Malaysia, negara Kristian?) based entirely on blog postings by several pro-Umno bloggers.

The bloggers had charged the DAP with sedition for trying to change the country’s laws to enable a Christian to be prime minister, pointing to a grainy photograph showing what they described to be a secret pact between the DAP and pastors at a hotel in Penang on Wednesday.

In a posting headlined “Agong under threat? DAP wants to make Christianity the official religion of Malaysia?” blogger Marahku ( accused the DAP of trying to amend the federal constitution to allow a Christian to become prime minister.

“The whole point of changing the official religion is to allow a Christian to become prime minister of this country,” the blogger said.

On, the writer claimed to have received a message that the DAP’s Jeff Ooi had organised a dinner for pastors from Sarawak and overseas at the Red Rock Hotel in Jalan Macalister, Penang.

“Among the activities that night included the 35 pastors taking a group oath. They formed a circle and touched each other’s shoulder and vowed in English to make Christianity the official religion of Malaysia and put a Christian prime minister in office,” the anonymous writer said in his blog under the headline “Making Christianity the official religion?”

It's a blatant lie, Christians wouldn't even think of such an idea.

All we fight for is for our rights. You deprieve us from burial grounds, you push our churches to industrial areas. You make a mockery of our Bibles. You demand that The Archbishop removes all religious statues and arts for the arrival of the PM!

As a Christian, i don't see any issue with the country's constitution stating Islam as Official Religion and PM having to be the leader of UMNO. Anyone who finds this an issue is seriously looking for unwanted trouble.
