Breaking news... appreciate your posting but the same post was in Susan Loone's blogsite at 12.00 midnite last nite plus in RPK's blog an hour later lah.
wah! hot.... but still politics leh
First and foremost about justice. Politics only secondary. Else it's like saying that MJ's pedophile trials were about music.
That reminds me of another paedophile case where a pilot son of a VVIP was convicted in Adelaide court in Australia but seen as political too... I thought it is about decency and values and fairness? If it had been you and I, we would have lost our pilot job, don't you think?Originally Posted by isarahim

I read one of the postings in MT, the words that captured my attention is "....Tuhan ada mata..."
Are you generalising here???Originally Posted by isarahim
Not something nice to say - especially in the Lent season...
I must say, for once - I am offended by your remark...

I concur. If I may, this is after all Lent, and this is a time even the mightiest refrain from the worldly desires and my friend, if it is possible please refrain from making sweeping statements.
Oh oh Isarahim... I think you have stepped on some sensitive toes.
Hey guys, cool it okay, I don't think Isa was generalising, he was just making a statement of fact, maybe timing of Lent etc, might not be appropriate, but I don't think he meant any harm.
I certainly didnt expect this coming from isarahim...Originally Posted by isarahim
He is much too intelligent to generalize this way.... nevertheless, I feel that a little more discretion should have been exercised. Even though I am aware of the hundreds of pedo cases that I hear and read involving XXXXXXXX priests, especially in the US.
This is like saying "all muslims are terrorists" just because of the actions of a few... which is a wrong perception, likewise.

That's OK Chang, I am quiet aware of your biased moderation too... And I dont need to slip in any last few words
a simple apology won't do him any harm either...Originally Posted by Sentinel
Ok my sincere apologies to those who didn't get the joke.

and, oh, i apologize, too, if my statement above offended anyone.
It's better to be poor than to be rich. The rich always have to fear becoming poor, but the poor never have to fear becoming rich.
