Sorry, here in Singapore, no way am I going to get on my knees and worship ex SAF Chief Winston Choo should he pass on earlier than me.

And no way am I going to get on my knees with a joss stick in my hand to worship Guan Yu. Period.

Guan Yu is worshipped by both police and underworld in Hong Kong and also has his own altar
He is worshipped not because he is a god but because of his unsurpassed spirit of righteous loyalty in Chinese legendary records

In the first place, I don't even consider Guan Gong to be a god. Laughing

I will never worship anything, any creature, be it a human, a bird, a tiger, an elephant...whatever, which was created by God. Laughing

Some people may call me "dishonourable" and most unfilial, but I don't even worship my own ancestors including my deceased parents. I don't believe in Qing Ming and the Seventh Month and all that.

And if I won't even worship my own ancestors, I see no reason why I should worship somebody else's ancestor like Guan Gong (or Mao Tse Tung for that matter). Laughing

You dun worship your ancestors but there is no need to ridicule them. 举头三尺有神明 一切尽在不言中

Show me where I ridiculed my ancestors? Surprised

In fact, all I only wrote is that I don't worship ancestors. It's not ridiculing ancestors or somebody else's ancestor, just like someone saying that he is not a Christian is not ridiculing Christianity just because he says he is not a Christian right.

If you want to know what's "ridicule", look at the Christian thread where God was/is being ridiculed, but I chose not to engage...that thread had run to hundred over pages....showing a picture of Jesus with a middle finger, and more.....................

Here's the thread.
