Christians have no rights?

As I trawled the internet for the latest on the Rony Tan saga, one thing strike me. On blogs and especially forums, the attacks come fast and furious. There are plenty of name calling, hate mail, flame and most of it were 1 way - towards Rony Tan and in many instances, Christianity and the churches. The response by Christians in contrast were more muted. And this remind me of the Aware saga where the takeover of  Aware became an attack on not just the challengers but on Christianity.

Which is interesting. Where are the police reports filed against these people? Or is it alright to bash Christian but not alright for Christian to bash others? Or is it because Christian are perceived to be easy target (turn the other cheek?) and can be bullied? Or is it that Christians have made themselves so unpopular with their 'superior than thou' attitude and 'you sinners, we believers' mentality that they have become the boxing bag for everybody?

But thankfully here in SG, Christians are not so confrontational and should rightly be so otherwise we will end up like certain countries.

Hopefully, the whole thing will blow over soon and peace will return. And hopefully, I won't get invited to coffee by the good people at ISD for writing this.

  1. Hi, saw your comment on my blog so I decided to pay a visit in return. Since you mentioned "here are plenty of name calling, hate mail, flame and most of it were 1 way - towards Rony Tan and in many instances, Christianity and the churches", I would like to see some of these remarks for myself.

    If you can furnish the URL, I will go check them out. Thanks! :)

  2. Hi xizor2000,
    I don't think I should post the links here. There will be too many and there is no reasons to help spread the rot. You just need to go to some of the forums (especially those belonging to certain communities). Most of the more 'fierce' comments/posts will have been deleted by moderators but you should still be able to catch drift of it.

  3. I see. Too bad it has already been removed. I'll like to see some of these people taught a lesson. Too many people treat us Christians as a bunch of wussies.

  4. Hi Xizor2000,

    It is precisely the fear of 'retaliation' like you said 'taught a lesson' that I do not think it is appropriate to post any links to the 'not so nice' comments.
