No reason to pingback

August 12, 2006

As I do not see a reason why I should give people who post on the Internet and then censor people’s comments traffic. I will however, leave my comment that I left on theirs here, just for record’s sake.

And if you came here looking for a fight, I’d tell you to buzz off. If you want to have a good discussion, then I’m all ears. Just no flaming please, this is a public blog after all. Thanks.

And yes, you may disregard the comment as it has nothing whatsover to do with my next post… PC FAIR!!!

Honestly, reading this whole thing is giving me a headache, so I’ll just sum up something that you might pointed out yourselves.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS MODERATE / EXTREMIST / FANATICAL ETC. ISLAM. THERE’S ONLY ONE ISLAM, ONE ESSENCE IN ITS TEACHINGS AND ONE GOD! THERE ARE NO DIFFERENT FACES TO ISLAM.

If that is true, why are there different schools of thoughts?

I’d say it’s not that the essence is wrong, but the perception of the essence. After all, it’s the same reason why Christianity itself has so many schools of thought and religion.

And by the way, Christianity does have it’s own punishment against those who leave the faith, but we do not see a need to specify to God what that punishment is:

The Letter to the Hebrews, Chapter 4: 5-6, 8
For how can those who abandon their faith be brought back to repent again? They were once in God’s light: they tasted heaven’s gift and received their share of the Holy Spirit; they knew from experience that God’s works is good, and they
had felt the powers of the coming age. 6 And then they abandoned their faith! It is impossible to bring them back to repent again, because they are again crucifying the Son of God and exposing Him to public shame.

God blesses the soil which drinks in the rain that often falls on it and which grows plants that are useful to those for whom it is cultivated. But if it grows thorns and weeds, it is worth nothing; it is in danger of being cursed by God and will be destroyed by fire.

If this is preaching to you, then I am sorry, but if you choose to delete this comment because I quoted from my own religious text to defend my religion against attacks from religions like yours, then I’m sad and ashamed that Beautiful Islam has such ugly followers.

    You know, you are so given with the priviledge of freedom that you will vent in your public/personal blog whenever you are depressed/annoyed/ about something.

    Yet, if you have not know while it is good to vent, prevention has always been better than cure.

    Try it sometimes.

  2. Edmund, while that may be true, I’d rather vent it out so that people will know where I stand, rather than let them make the assumption for me as the silent majority.

    I’d rather be vocal and let people tell me I’m wrong with facts, rather to be silent to preserve the sensitivies of people. At the end of the day, there is no way you can avoid the issue, so why not tackle it head on, rather than keeping silent and letting other people do what you wouldn’t want them to do?

    If you keep silent, you deserve what you get. If you have a voice, use it.

    Better to ask a stupid question and gain knowledge than to keep silent and be ignorant.

    Have you watched Adam Sandler’s Click?

    There was a leprechaun who’s trying to get the pot of gold at the other end of the rainbow but all he finds is just corn flakes.

    Get the metaphor.

    If you believe what you believe in and stands for it, what really matters is that you’re LIVING with it. (Play PS2’s Kingdom Hearts if you have it, and check out Hayner’s attitude).

    Get the action going.

  4. Why would the leprechaun try to get the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? Leprechauns should already have their own.

    Unfortunately, I have to admit my ignorance and would ask you to explain what your metaphor means, cause I really don’t get it. And I can’t play KH2 as I have no PS2.

    Living with it means that I respect other religions, but I will not stand for my own to be lambasted without just cause (at least this I think is what you’re trying to say?). Besides… why is dialogue bad? Minus the caustic remark at the end, I don’t see where I went wrong. Please tell me where prevention would have been better than cure, or what do you think I should be trying to prevent.

    On another note, while gold may be pretty, at least you can eat corn flakes rather than gold. Practicality over money. ^_^ Or brands.
