protest. If this happens in the US (and it probably already has) will anyone stand up to the Muslims and say "No, I'm not removing the cross." Of course then they would sue the church, and it would probably go in their favor, and the cross would be removed.

It was probably removed because the "church" didn't have a license, which looks like is required in that city.

Zainun said the church could make a written application for a licence.

“Shoplots that are converted into places of worship or meditation centres must comply to Act 133 Section 70(12) and a written application with the activities described must be submitted for approval. We need these compliance as to ensure safety of the people using the building,” she said.

She added that all places of worship intending to display a logo or symbol on the building must comply with the council’s permit.

“Be it a lotus, trident or a cross, a council permit is needed,” said Zainun.

OP, you are stirring things up. You are not totally to blame, your source is a pot-stirrer. You should really watch where you get the news from.

Now, the second link, which was provided by J24, shows a different story. Here is a quote:

She added that all places of worship intending to display a logo or symbol on the building must comply with the council’s permit.

“Be it a lotus, trident or a cross, a council permit is needed,” said Zainun.


When will some of you get that Muslims are not a homogeneous group? And has it occurred to you that democracy means different things in different countries? It sounds like 50 Malaysian Muslims protested. I think it was a messed up thing to do, and pretty trivial, but I was raised in this country. It's stupid to lump all 1.57 million Muslims together. Wake up and stop lending your ear to Fox News and their ilk.

My post above should've said 1.57 billion, not million. I can't edit the post now.

Show us where "it probably already has", in the US. We don't live in a theocracy.
