We are at WAR
Wafa Sultan: “The clash we are witnessing around the world is not a clash of religions, or a clash of civilizations. It is a clash between two opposites, between two eras. It is a clash between a mentality that belongs to the Middle Ages and another mentality that belongs to the 21st century. It is a clash between civilization and backwardness, between the civilized and the primitive, between barbarity and rationality. It is a clash between freedom and oppression, between democracy and dictatorship. It is a clash between human rights, on the one hand, and the violation of these rights, on other hand. It is a clash between those who treat women like beasts, and those who treat them like human beings. What we see today is not a clash of civilizations. Civilizations do not clash, but compete.”
These were the exact words of a Syrian woman, borned into a Muslim family and later on took on Christianity. Very strong words. I cannot agree more with her. She preached everything i ever believed in, that everyone should be open to their rights to belief and rights to practice as we wished. Her quotes touched my heart… I shall not condemn any religion as i believe no religion is wrong. No religion tells you to kill, none tells you to sin. But as civilization moves forward, not all move forward with it. Laws of religions created then might not be applicable now. Be it Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, or Hinduism, they are all holy and good religions. But the laws of the religions need to progress with time.
And only when a particular leader dares to change the ways of its teaching’s, can the religion grow bigger and deeper.
One Malaysia? let’s work towards once voice in respecting each other’s religions first… 🙂
“Brother, you can believe in stones, as long as you don’t throw them at me. You are free to worship whoever you want, but other people’s beliefs are not your concern, whether they believe that the Messiah is God, son of Mary, or that Satan is God, son of Mary. Let people have their beliefs.”
My conclusion of the video… ‘Should my kids choose to embrace a religion not of mine, let it be.. so as long as they do not stop their children from embracing another. Only then, can people believing in different thing’s can live together, with love and respect for one another..’
