Francissca Peter was a popular 80s singer better known as ‘Fran’.
Below is her tweet in response to the problems currently encountered by Catholic weekly, Herald, in their fight against the government.
“@tm_insider useless radical terroristic minds always persecuting race and religions of minorities”
Since the TMI article is about Putrajaya putting a fresh curb on the Herald, it figures that Fran’s label of “useless radical terroristic minds” is being slapped on the government, which in her opinion, is “always persecuting race and religions of minorities”.
The Christian persecution complex
Ms Peter is not alone in her belief. Another Christian who had gotten into trouble with the law was Lim Guan Eng’s special officer Chan Li Lian who tweeted:
“i think all Christians shud march [in Bersih] for all the persecution they had done to us and our Lord”.
Their tweets are reflective of how local Christians feel about the Umno government.
Francissca Peter does not have a large Twitter following. Nonetheless being picked up in Hannah Yeoh’s timeline (see screenshot above) allows Fran to reach Madame Speaker’s 88,000 twits who follow her on the social media.
This photo of Najib (reproduced above) is the one that the Herald editors selected for use in their website — see below.
Is the Herald a church paper or a political pamphlet?
See the screenshot below of today’s Herald website front page. It has 8 headlines on ‘Malaysian Church News’ and ‘Other Malaysian News’.
The Herald headlines are:
- Najib meets Muslim groups to defuse tension over ‘Allah’ and other issues
- ‘Allah’ rings out in Malaysian churches despite ban
- Top cop breaks his silence on ‘Allah’ issue, warns troublemakers
- Brawn vs brain in ‘Allah’ issue
- Time for Najib to walk the talk on moderation :DAP
- Rafizi to Putrajaya: Don’t burden Selangorians, maintain water rates
- Putrajaya imposes ‘very high’ restrictions on religion, global study finds
- First Cabinet meeting of the year was a big letdown for not deciding on pressing issues, says Kit Siang
Church is a Pakatan sub-division
Look at whose names are in the headlines in the Herald — Rafizi, Kit Siang, DAP berating Najib to “walk the talk”.
The article reproduced in the Herald titled ‘Brawn vs brain in ‘Allah’ issue‘ is revealing of what the Christians are thinking, i.e. they are the brainy underdog David and Umno is the brawny jock Goliath.
Do the Davids have a point?
Umno is not being very smart when it is shooting at its own people, for example this ‘W. Khairy mahu PMO serang balik blogger pro-Umno-”Nazi” (dan Utusan juga?)‘.
The PMO operatives are trying to paralyse their own pro-Umno bloggers who belong to a different faction. Umno is culling itself. Bijak sungguh.
