Comment on Bogor
A anonymous (of course) comment is received in response to the previous post regarding a Supreme Court order to reopen the Yasmin church in Bogor. The comment reads "What came first, the chicken or the egg?" Although the comment is cryptic, I'm guessing that the author meant to express a sort of "who started it" sentiment. My answer would be that the question is moot. What we deal with in the present are present realities as they coincide not only with an eternal notion of justice but with application of the rule of law. Both the order of the State, handed down by the high law, and the true spirit of Islam are violated in the Bogor mayor's defiance.
