Malay Muslims March Against Alleged Christian Proselytizing
Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), October 22 (LaPresse / AP)
—Thousands of Malaysian Muslims have protested against the alleged conversion-work implemented by the Christians. The parade reflected the rising racial tensions in the Muslim-majority country ahead of elections scheduled for next year. The president of the organizing committee, Yusri Mohamed, said the event, supported by two dozens of Islamic groups, is to unite Muslims to defend their faith. Muslim is not allowed to legally change religion in Malaysia. The conversion attempts are punishable with imprisonment. In August, the Islamic authorities have inspected a Methodist church frequented by Muslims, raising concern about a form of proselytism, however, denied by the church. Non-Muslims in Malaysia are mostly Christians, Buddhists and Hindus.

“The Christian church is an encyclopedia of prehistoric cults and conceptions of the most diverse origin! That is why it is so capable of proselytizing. It always could, and can still can go wherever it pleases and find something similar to itself which it can adapt to and gradually impose upon with its own meaning.”

"Christians have been pushing their religion on me non-stop for my entire life...
and they won’t back the fuck off and leave you the hell alone either. and none of the mother fuckers practice what they preach either. Jesus would have been a socialist, but “Christ”ian Conservatives get pissed off at the idea of helping anybody other than rich people.”
I just had a great idea. Next time someone tries to missionary me, I will simply respond in Taiwanese as if I had no comprehension of the English language. My Taiwanese is not very good, but I know enough to say “Sorry, I don’t know what you’re saying, I don’t speak English” — and I can pad out the rest with nonsensical sentences like “Telephone, telephone, my maternal grandmother is a telephone” or “Why don’t we eat? This chicken smells so good!”
Missionary: Have you heard the good news of Jesus Christ?
Me, in Taiwanese: Your hand is so big.
Missionary: Do you speak English?
Me: Please be seated.
Missionary: Is your mother home? Ni hao?
Me: We are my children. Can you see my rice? Your eyeballs.
