Wow, since when the government has a right to confiscate literature?

Main Article

If you read my blog, which I don't think you do, you probably know I have as much regard of the Christian faith as the next stray dog behind a dark alley, which is none. But with the recent seizing of the bibles because it translated "god" into "allah", it makes me ponder again.

How can something like this be justified at all?
*I thought we agreed on the freedom of religion? People can believe in anything they want, and yet they can't publish anything related to it. Come on, if they so wish to believe that Jesus H Christ is the immaculately conceived son of allah then let them be.

Why are we spending tax payers money to undertake something as pointless as this?
Again. Why are we banning fiction? Maybe the next thing you know they're banning fan fictions of Harry Potter because they claim that Dumbledore is gay. Maybe he is, I don't know, but it'd be funny.

Since when the word "allah" has been trademarked?
I think it's the same as any other names, Tom, or Dick or Harry. Do religions get corporate protection for their TMs? Maybe christians could file a patent on how to fight a crusade?

*only applicable to non-muslims

The word "freedom" is very ill-defined in Malaysia.

About this blog

A lot of stuff about what I think, and not what I am about. Which is good, because I would be able to make fun of Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Penn State, and discuss on our futility against Ohio State. (But Woo Shoelace!)

I still think the word "god" should not be capitalized, because like oxygen or air or universe, it's an entity, and is not specific or special in its meaning.
