The Church, The Mosque, and The Ugly

First was the revelation of an attempt to proselytize several Muslims at a church; then came the protest at the mosque last Friday. Then, the following comment was made on Free Malaysia Today‘s website.

This was totally uncalled for. I must say, using the Decalogue (also known as “The Ten Commandments“) to hit at others is not the smartest thing to do. Islam forbids me to say bad things about the Prophets (Quran 2:285), so I shall not go down to the level of the commentator. However, I shall hit out at the lack of understanding of the very Decalogue he/she had mentioned. I shall quote excerpts from the Book of Deuteronomy:

THE FIRST COMMANDMENT: “I AM YOUR LORD GOD, WHO BROUGHT YOU OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT, OUT OF THE HOUSE OF SLAVERY; YOU SHALL HAVE NO OTHER GODS BESIDE ME”

Explain, the concept of the Holy Trinity.

THE SECOND COMMANDMENT: “YOU SHALL NOT MAKE FOR YOURSELF AN IDOL, WHETHER IN THE FORM OF ANYTHING THAT IS IN HEAVEN ABOVE, OR THAT IS ON THE EARTH BENEATH, OR THAT IS IN THE WATER UNDER THE EARTH. YOU SHALL NOT BOW DOWN TO THEM OR WORSHIP THEM; FOR I THE LORD, YOUR GOD, IS A JEALOUS GOD.”

Explain, the Crucifix, the Statue of Mary, and of other Saints.

I can go on and on about the Decalogue but at the risk of hurting the feelings of my Malaysian Christian brothers. Do I need to dwell on that? No. There should be inter-religious respect, protecting of each other’s religion, and not back-stabbing one another (stealing of followers, or spread lies about another religion). The commentator, having claimed good knowledge of the Decalogue should remember this:

THE NINTH COMMANDMENT (EIGHTH COMMANDMENT FOR THE ROMAN CATHOLICS AND LUTHERANS): NEITHER SHALL YOU BEAR FALSE WITNESS AGAINST YOUR NEIGHBOUR.”

So, just shut the fuck up and stop trying to incur God’s Wrath.
