Stuff you probably did not know

Seems like my blog turns into a politic blog now and a hardcore DAP supporter with banners everywhere. Why not? It is my space...

So why do I care so much and promote so much? My girlfriend calls me obsess. Debbie call me gila Hannah Haha. I think I am just ANTI BN. Whatever else is fine with me. So I am more of a rocket and PKR supporter.

So is my dad and my brother (although he is not voting). I believe very well that I want and I can make a choice to change. People are sick and tired of BN. Although I don't know how the new government will run, or how would opposition be like if they are in power, If I don't like, I can take them off again. Because the power is not the government, the power is us.

So for the stuff you probably did not know...

For a simple issue, Did you know that it is ILLEGAL for office lot churches to put up signboard outside their building like any other shop? Well I don't know about the rest of the area but I know in my area (Subang) it is illegal. That is why our church do not have a signboard up because we can't get permit and are not allow to do so.

For the 2nd issue, this is probably unheard of to many people. You can read the whole story here, published by the sun. For short, the churches in Subang Jaya have to pay RM1,000 yearly for permit to run our church if we're in shop houses which are rented. That means nearly every single church (more than 100 churches) in Subang is affected. And the worst thing is our previous so called "Christian" state assembly MCA man - Lee Hwa Beng said it himself. The only church which is legal in Subang is First Baptist because they have their own land, no need to pay.

And for that very issue, the church have absolutely no idea about it until the objection period is over. So actually this problem have not been resolve as I blogged. That means whoever that is going to church in Subang are actually illegal. So that makes me and my fellow church mates illegal Christians. Woohoo... we can call ourselves underground Christians for once!

Simple? Just pay Rm1,000 settle lor right? nope. if you start paying for permit, means there is a possibility of them having power to threaten you. "If you don't do this and this we will not renew your permit to run the church".

So how? Stephanie talking about me having so many political banners nanti kena ISA. So now we're all in danger for going to church nanti kena ISA lol.

someone once said this, doing what is right may not be the right thing to do.

I'd rather be charged under ISA than to be quiet when injustice is happening and when corruption is eating this country alive.

Every Malaysians must remember this. THE PEOPLE determine the law, not those who are in power. We may put them there and WE SURE CAN BRING THEM DOWN!

Time to wake up.. as a poem written by Pastor Martin Niemöller says:


When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn't a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

Don't let it happen when there's no one left to speak out for injustice, corruption and oppression. St Augustine once said this, "An unjust law is no law at all".

Let's have a new era come 9/3/2008.

hey, if i'm not mistaken, Lee Hwa Beng clarified it a few days later that the churches in Subang do not have to pay for permits... the article appeared in the Sun also...
