This is a post that is going to reek of dissent, so if you are not up to a dose of gripe, I suggest a long walk away from this page.
Working at a place where I have a television set blaring all day has lead me to master partial hearing. Now I only wish to learn how to filter out stuff I read.
I was blog-hopping and happened upon Sai’s blog. He has written his take on the women in the Sabarimala shrine issue.
And then, I clicked on the comment button. Biggest darned mistake of the day.
People have thrashed the article and the author in the basest of languages. The argument on is utterly pointless and vague. Most of the idiots there don’t even know what the entire post is about. The whole idea has been misconstrued while a bunch of pseudo preachers of Hinduism have taken the utterly predictable course of pointing out the holes in other religions. A couple of them have the cheek to talk about menstruation as if it was some kind of disease. They have gone on and on about how religion and beliefs are not to be touched by a barge pole because the sentiment of 1000s was strung around it…
Wake up and smell the coffee you big nitwits.
It is not about one temple or one religion. It is about equality and the right to worship. It is about the one supreme God who does not believe in divide and rule. It is about getting a life. It is about thinking logically. It is about faith … in God and the judgment meted out therewith.
I have got a bad taste in my mouth just reading the thoughts… how do these people live with them?
