aetherna: (frottage2)
An update to my previous post about the problem in the country's president election. Two names associated with certain religion here made frontal statements regarding their support to the first candidate who is currently "fighting" in court. One said that this candidate is the descendant of God Himself, doing her oration in front of a mass of people. Another encouraged his people to pray to "push" God to support "truth", which he believed lies with this first candidate.

...This is so hopeless. This is why we can hardly move forward. People dwell on unimportant points way too much, and depends on the situation, they start to mix one thing and another creating bigger chaos. Religion and politic can't go together; they are just not made for each other. Acting like this makes things easily offensive, especially with the words from the lawyer team previously. And of ot has touched religion, there is high chance that they will also touch the topic of race and ethnic. Well, Chinese has been disliked since ages ago for whatever reason, being "foreigner".

I really dislike this whole issue. Why do they have to make it so complicated?!
