Is polling on a Sunday insensitive Bishop Tan?

As the time for nomination day approaches this weekend on 20th of April, the BN are unveiling their list of candidates while the Pakatan are still haggling with theirs...catch the latest here. I am not dwelling to much on the candidates as I, like many Malaysians have already decided which party/coalition that we will vote for.

I have a few words for tantrum throwing Bishop Tan though:


'Reflection of callous insensivity to Christians?'..... What the heck are you talking about? I say man Bishop Tan please get off your high horse lah show some tolerance lah, this is Malaysia if you hadn't noticed our blessed nation  is a multi-religious and multi-racial country which have conducted  three general elections successfully and peacefully on  a Sunday with no complains whatsoever. Voting on Sunday 5 May 2013 will start at 8.00 am and end at 5.00 pm and you can have your mass in the morning which shouldn't take that long, and after that plenty of time for your flock to go to vote what. 

So what do you want really Bishop Tan, the polls to be on a Friday? Rest be assured that the very tolerant majority Malaysian Muslims would not complain as they will find time to vote before or after Friday prayers, tak de hal punya. 

But thething is the polling date are set by the SPR who are appointed by the DYMM Agung, so lets vote on the set date and let us pray that the best candidates of good moral standing are chosen for each constituency shall we? 

So Bishop Tan I think lets move on to a more tolerant Malaysian society, can or not?
