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.
