禁酒令!

这两天,最困扰民联的议题,大概是雪州回教党被报道要在全州的县议会提呈“禁酒令”动议。这新闻曝光后,不但被马华、民政咬着,民联的其他成员党也呛声反对。

我自问,10年前的我,一定是不用思考就支持这项动议,因为身体里面流着的,乃是基要派的血!但是,随着日子的增加,思想也较为广阔,今天的我会多想一点。

1. 我绝对赞成酒精的误用会带来严重的社会问题,对我们的身体也不好。因此,能不喝,很好;能有所节制的饮用,也不算太坏(我在某些场合也会与好友们一起享用杯中之物,但我只需要一杯就见效,无需浪费!)。

2. 在民主社会中,我们应该尊重回教党有权提出这些建议。然而,回教党也必须尊重民主社会最终的选择。

3. 面对不同意见时,重要的乃是理性思考、辩论,而非直接付诸与情绪的交锋。

4. 回教党到底是以什么立场提出此建议呢?是其宗教前提?还是社会关怀的前提呢?如果是前者,面对一个多元宗教的社会,这非常不适合被提呈,因为纯粹以宗教观点为考量的意见,都应该只让其信众遵守为宜。若此意见拥有普世价值,则应该以此价值来说服其他人。(这一点,注定要被很多人批判了!)

你怎么看呢?

Hi ps,

just check with you for info:

STM recruits full time students in January; but how about mid-year July? can student go in , in July?

Kar Yong said...

Hi Van Til
For full-time students taking up one of our programmes (e.g., B Div or M Div), the intake is for Jan only. This is because a number of courses offered in the 2nd semester in July have pre-req of courses offered in the Jan semester. However, for our Theological Education by Extension programme, one may start anytime.

Hope this clarifies.

tks Kar yong , for your info.

Actually I thot of that too.

but I wonder, if the person join in July for Mdiv, then just take whatever subjects that seminary approve, in that case, such person may complete Mdiv probably 3.5 years.... I mean, self-support candidate.

if this agreeable to the seminary?

Hi Van Til,

I am not too sure about this - as this depends on whether the candidate is coming in as part-time or full-time student. If you wish, the best person to be in touch with is the Academic Dean - you may want to write to Anthony Loke, the new academic dean, for clarification; his email: aloke6 at yahoo dot co dot uk
