Over the past few days, so many anonymous people have been going around leaving comments in blogs including mine. Let me reminded these cowards that my last two posts were about Khir Toyo and the blogger who is an MCA leader. My first post is about how Khir Toyo only sees the problems with other political parties while the MCA leader went further by speculating, making assumptions and what is most disgusting is his sexist descriptions on his blog plus blaming everything on PAS.
Then, things are getting stupid. So, since it is a Saturday, let me share a few paras from the Bible.
1But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. 3The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.
But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
9At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”
11″No one, sir,” she said.
“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”

On this weekend, our parish priest, Father Fabian also reminded us parishioners (i.e. members of our church) about our guilts in the whole scenario :
Have we gone back to the terraces, have we become mere spectators once again?
While we may feel indignant for Elizabeth Wong and empathise with her but if we have succumbed to our voyeuristic instinct by surfing the internet and whatever other means to peek-a-boo, then not only do we legitimatize the actions of the perpetrators, we too violate the sanctity of human dignity and decency and we are just as guilty as most of our unscrupulous journalists from some of the leading newspapers in our country. Perhaps we have to be more discerning about what newspapers we buy.

Finally, I wish to share YB Khalid Samad’s blog entries. He is from PAS but to me, he is one of the few wise politicians I respect. His post on Tukang Intai takes on the issue in a sensible way, unlike many others who are either condemning or supporting blindly.
While you are at YB Khalid Samad’s blog, notice how many people are gleefully throwing stones? It is very easy to throw stones. But it takes a man with a big heart and full of wisdom to refrain from it. And in the blogosphere, we lack the big heart, wise person.
