STIRRING CATHOLICS: WHAT’S IN A NAME?

I sometimes wonder why we have to go through so much hassle just over a name that is to be used!

Of course, the purists will disagree with me profusely. This term has been used for centuries and we (the Catholics) should not be denied the right. Maybe for them (and maybe the rest of us), this matter is a means to a bigger issue ….. constitutional rights of Malaysians?

On the other side of the divide, this is just the kind of opportunity for the vested interest group (i.e. government) to whittle down the support for the opposition.

In response, PAS president Hadi Awang issued the following statement:

‘PAS would like to state that based on Islamic principles, the use of the word ‘Allah’ by the people of the Abrahamic faiths such as Christianity and Judaism, is acceptable.’

Just to wrap up, someone was quoted on this subject matter sometime ago:

“There is an inscrutable Providence that presides over our destiny. Call it God, the Almighty, Karma or just Pure Divinity.”

Can we move on to the next subject, please?
