God Is On The Lam In Malaysia
File under: Wackadoo Gurus and Backroom Gurudom
A self-proclaimed reincarnation of anyone who was anyone in the history of all religion, and the one true God for the whole world, is on the run in Malaysia. Authorities are on the lookout for Ayah Pin, aka Ariffin Mohammed, after he fled his amusement park-like Sky Kingdom cult compound just before it came under attack by a government-looking-the-other-way assisted mob. The police showed up a bit later to put an end to the "rioting," but the damage was already done (and the message had been delivered.)
But not stopping there, the Malaysian government has kicked the anti-Pin propaganda into high gear:
Ariffin Mohamed, a.k.a. Ayah Pin, should be stopped before he becomes a serious threat to the nation, religious adviser to the Prime Minister Tan Sri Dr Abdul Hamid Othman said today.Heh. That's a good one, Islam feeling threatened by a seemingly harmless wackadoo's minor cult while U.S. anti-Muslim sentiment, backed by an aggressive anti-terrorist military campaign, remains at an all-time high. Being high would explain it, which makes us think the Malaysian authorities might not be as anti-drug as their draconian drug laws would suggest.
He said the sanctity of Islam and the security of the nation were at stake.
"We must realise that deviant teachings can be used by outsiders to disturb the peace. He must be stopped. We must look at his movement from a security perspective, not just the corruption of Islam."
