Government? Gotta ‘Communicate’ With Bigot Thugs Before Enforcing Law?



Suppose a gang of violent robbers declared their total disregard for the law and proceeded to stage criminal assaults on innocent Jakarta citizens.

Should the police enforce the law or should a government minister announce that before action is taken against them, he wants to sit down with the muggers and explain to them that, er, actually mugging is a crime and they need to give it up?

Ridiculous question?

I’d say so, and probably you would too.

  • So what to make of Minister of Religious Affairs Lukman’s reported statement on the plight of persecuted Christians in West Java, denied access to their church for four years by bigot hoodlums, and a sectarian local mayor, in defiance of both Supreme Court and Ombudsman rulings.

“The court decision is good, but needs to be communicated with the others [the groups that oppose it],”

For pity’s sake!

He imagines those louts are unaware they’re flouting the law?

Bona Sigalingging, an activist who has long campaigned for religious liberty, both for that church, GKI Yasmin, and for other oppressed minorities, says he met Lukman “three days ago, and he said that the state should not bow to the intolerant groups.

But now we read Lukman may not wish to bow down, but is quite prepared to sit down, with fanatics like GARIS and FORKAMI, who have openly resorted to mayhem to stop the small Protestant congregation from exercising the clear constitutional right to enter their house of worship.

Bona reckons “it will take some time for the ruling of the Supreme Court and the recommendations of the Ombudsman to really be implemented.”

Damn right it will, if Lukman seriously intends to waste time ‘communicating’ with vicious sectarians before telling the West Java Police to desist from their long failure to enforce the ruling of the country’s highest court.
