Malaysian Religious Fascism Rages

File under: Back Room Gurudom

The 45 former followers of Ayah Pin who were arrested after the Malaysian government's recent pogrom cannot find any lawyers to defend them against charges of "spreading beliefs contrary to Islam and violating Islamic precepts." The lawyers are fearful of the "loss of their accreditation" and reprisals by the Muslim community, most of whom seem to have been egregiously inflamed by the whole affair.

Once again a sad truth is confirmed: religion is responsible for at least as much as suffering as it relieves. With God doing all the creating, you've got to begin to wonder a bit about "Him." But it's much easier to understand as a Kali devotee. All you need to know is that God is a crazy Bitch. That just about covers everything these days.
