Faith should be encompassing
Why are many people so reluctant to speak against the imprisonment of Liu Xiaobo? the murder of Li Wangyang? the massacre of June 4? the exploitation of the poor by the rich right here in Hong Kong, and elsewhere? the dishonesty in government? the domination in the legislature by the rich and powerful? the refusal to treat the refugees and asylum seekers better? the discrimination against the ethnic minorities? Instead, all we hear is that we should comply with the government’s rule, as if the government can do no wrong. And even if the government is wrong, it is still wrong for us to speak against it. I do not think that is what God wants us to do.
