In case you haven’t heard

Lina Joy lost her appeal in the civil courts case. Of course, we all know that there are certain
idiots people who are rejoicing. Edit: I changed it from idiots because I got a nice surprise from one of them. Treating her with care and compassion is certainly more than what I would have expected from some Muslims opposed to her religious change, especially a so-called PR 5 blogger (or was it 6? can’t be bothered, really, and yes I am being a bit petty about it).
Thanks for renewing my faith in Muslims.
What’s interesting (for me at least) to note is that she’s lost in the CIVIL Courts. I know that she doesn’t want to go to the Syariah, but I would like to point out something: Since this is a religious matter, and she DID come out from Islam, common sense would dictate that she go there to remove her status shouldn’t it?
Of course, Malaysian common sense would also say that she would be thrown into prison immediately. For wanting to leave a religion that she does not believe in anymore.
In Malaysia, say goodbye to your personal and religious rights once you become a Muslim. Gods… I think if I want to marry Anata, I might as well leave this country. I love you Malaysia, but I don’t love the idiots in you.
