Hwa Beng: God commands Christians to fight Islamic state

MCA's datuk Lee Hwa Beng said, "God commands Christians to fight Islamic state..."

Yup, ain't that a bigoted stance?

But then again Muslims, too, could say the same and no one beyond the parameters of that faith have the right credentials to oppose that notion. However, in Islam moderation is an honour.

Whatever extremism or fundamentalism - words coined, invariably, by detractors have never been part and parcel of the faith.

So, how do we manage such an outlook? Doesn't it give credence to the mindset of the person who made the statement?
