National Leader Condemns Humanism, Secularism, Human Rights


A Christian prime minister came out bluntly in a speech last week and condemned humanism, secularism and human rights as a threat to the religious-based morality that is so important for maintaining national cohesion and stability.

He said this mindset appeared to be becoming a new form of religion which was fast expanding locally and abroad.

“They call it human rightism, where the core beliefs are based on humanism and secularism as well as liberalism.

“It’s deviationist in that it glorifies the desires of man alone and rejects any value system that encompasses religious norms and etiquettes. They do this on the premise of championing human rights,” he said.

Oh, did I say a Christian prime minister? I meant the Muslim Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak of Malaysia. But that exact same statement could have been made and has been made by untold numbers of Christian politicians, pundits and pastors.

He said there were efforts to spread the deviant thinking by relating it to the sanctity of Islam and this was the most dangerous threat to the Islamic faith.

“So today, once again, we stress that Islam that is embraced, practised and upheld as the national religion in Malaysia is the Islam which is based on the Sunni sect as propagated by the Prophet Muhammad and his friends.

“We will not tolerate any demands or right to apostasy by Muslims, or deny Muslims their right to be governed by Shariah Courts and neither will we allow Muslims to engage in LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) activities,” he said.

Theocracy is theocracy, regardless of the brand name.

    On the positive side, “there [are] efforts to spread the deviant thinking by relating it to the sanctity of Islam.” Just as Christians have adopted humanism for their own, so are Muslims. That can only be a good thing.

    MO – I’m guessing Mahathir-lite thinks Wahabists are ‘No True Muslims’.

    That’s funny. I see some mushbrain PM trying to spread his own brand of deranged thinking by cloaking it in the language of human rights.

    “We will not…deny Muslims their right to be governed by Shariah Courts…

    Yes, we can’t risk the really important rights like that for such silly “rights” as religious freedom or ability to openly love a non-Qur’an-approved person. Those are stupid rights anyway.

    Where’s a brainwashed Derek Zoolander when you need him? (Preemptively, yes, I’m kidding.)

    You can always tell you’re on the right path when you need to force others to follow you under threat of prison or death.

    You were thinking of me. Impossible not to, really.

    When your choice of path is founded on faith, you have few other options.
