The moment I saw, “Apa lagi Cina mahu?” [trans: What more do the Chinese want?] I just felt this myriad of emotions:
What kind of moron puts something like that up on the front page of a local newspaper?
What has he been smoking and how short should the rope we hang him on be?
Is what I would like to say, but that wouldn’t be very Christian of me.
Violence is never the answer.
Especially upon aggravation.
But can we be angry?
Angry at the injustice and unwarranted provocation?
Angry that our concerns on illegal and fraudulent elections fall on deaf ears that just want us to ‘accept’ defeat without any explanation, even AFTER reports were made and evidence produced?
Go ahead and be angry. You do well to be angry—but don’t use your anger as fuel for revenge. And don’t stay angry […]
Now this is just my onion; anger, like any other emotion, comes uninvited.
When we are wronged, anger is a natural emotion to feel.
The sin, I guess, isn’t anger, but what we do with that anger. The same for sadness, or lust or even hunger.
Are we feeding our monsters?
Even Jesus got angry at the salesmen who made His father’s house a ‘den of robbers’. I questioned Jesus emotional actions in over-turning the tables. Drama, much?
But then I asked myself, if I had come home and random uninvited people had turned my living room into a wet market without permission, how would I react? Anger at the disrespect, yes. But would I be calm in shoo-ing them out? Certainly not. I would do whatever it takes to get them out.
Jesus loved His Father’s house, and He protected it. He ‘turned the tables’ on their focus because they had made the the place of prayer into something opposite. *Parallel note: the same anger God showed during Jeremiah’s time .
I never thought I’d be witness to such a revolution.
Only one man has the guts to turn the tables on the criminals who has made our country a den of robbers.
Dear Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim,
You have liberated us more as not being our Prime Minister, than if you had come into power 15 years ago. Then you would have just been another face on the plaques in PWTC, today every Malaysian fighting for equality and anti-corruption will carry your plaque in our hearts: The People’s Advocate. Malaysia will never walk the same dirty path ever again. Thank you for protecting this house, Sir.
To the Other Side,
On a side note: BUSINESS CARDS ON THE WAY!
On a scary HG note: Is it me, or is Najib like President Snow from The Hunger Games? If that is true, is Anwar Katniss? O_O
Calm your anger and abandon wrath. Don’t be angry- it only leads to evil. Those who do evil will perish. But those who wait on the Lord will inherit the land.
Sigh. All this mud-slinging is making me queasy.
Thinking of: Revelation, the end, my end, end.
