No police for moral policing

THANK you, G25 Malaysia, for highlighting the issue of police personnel being placed at the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS) to assist it in enforcing syariah law.

Let our tax money be used for the right reasons. As G25 Malaysia says, the police are badly needed in other areas where crime is concerned, and moral policing is not one of them.

The issue of personal sins and morals is between a person and God. Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.

Having a holier-than-thou attitude only reveals an arrogant attitude, and arrogance is not a godly virtue, humility is.

A person who persists in pointing out another person’s sins cannot guarantee that he himself is perfect. He may even be suffering from a severe case of “seeing a speck in another person’s eye but not the log in his own” because of his delusion as to his goodness.

Let us not judge one another because no one is perfect. Only God is, so let God be the judge on Judgement Day.
