We are not alone

We are not alone after all. Timid, dazed & confused folks everywhere, even in the liberal minded land of the sophisticated US of A. The land of the advanced people with confident, the surefooted folks.

Look who's protesting the 2nd Graders concert? Not even a program or publication related to any local mosque community there.

Do take a quick peek at the comment section if you have the time. Compare & take some time to reflect on what has been happening here in our own backyard.

Extracts from the above news:

Micah Clark, executive director of the Indiana AFA, launched an Internet protest once he heard about the allegations. “What surprised me here is that we’ve had a secular scrubbing of Christmas for so long and the school apparently didn’t see the problem with kids singing to Allah,” he told FOX News Radio. “You won’t even mention Jesus and you’re going to force my child to sing about Allah?

In email correspondence the school initially defended the reference as a way to be inclusive of all religions. However, once complaints starting rolling in, school leaders decided to eliminate the Allah reference. Read more:

Wow, is that not the same, exact subject matter? All too familiar isn't it, "the knee-jerk reactions"? Now, do you still wondering why the Muslims here in Malaysia voicing their objections and concerns?

Yes, knee-jerk reactions my foot!
And "Confident lady" my arse! - (see reference to this woman in Pure Shiite).

You (she - I refuse even to name her, she's so repulsive for me to even do that) can't be talking about being confident Malays and not worry about other Malays being confused if you use your head instead of your nose when talking. You assume that most Malays / Muslims in this country are of the level of education to know how to differentiate between Allah (the Maha Esa, the one and only God) and Allah that's not even consistent with the Christian Trinity of The Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost?

Where got Allah the father, Allah the son, Allah the ghost, they'll say. It's OK if they come back and ask their parents, friends etc. But if they read that crap at a drink kiosk in a shopping mall, or at the waiting room of a clinic and the like, then keep quiet about it, only asking themselves, don't they get confused? And when they bbecome confused, they become easily susceptible to encroachment on their religious beliefs.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, the Herald is supposed to be distributed only among the Christians. But what if they are inadvertently, or even deliberately (who knows?) left at such afore-mentioned places? Are there sufficient manpower to enforce the Court ruling and ensure there is no intended or unintended display of the paper?
