TUBAN, INDONESIA (Reuters) - Indonesia has urged officials to stand up to mob pressure after Muslim and nationalist protesters called for a 30-metre-tall (100-ft-) statue of a Chinese deity erected in a temple complex in an East Java town to be torn down.

The brightly-painted statue of Guan Yu, a former general who is worshipped by some Chinese, was inaugurated in July in a temple complex in the fishing town of Tuban and is claimed to be South-east Asia's tallest such representation of the deity.

The statue in Tuban, about 100 km (60 miles) west of the city of Surabaya, has been partially covered up after the protests, provoking both praise and ridicule on social media in the world's most populous Muslim-majority country....

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.

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

Respect and worship are two different things. I respect LKY but that does not mean I will build a statue of him and get on my knees with a joss stick in my hand, and pray to him, worship him, and ask him for blessings.

In China, many Chinese have erected an altar for Mao Tse Tung and are praying to him...but I don't believe that Mao Tse Tung can bless them.

As I wrote before, I was born into a Taoist family. Yup, when I was young (a small boy) I had served joss sticks to Guan Yin, Guan Gong...a whole altar of gods including one under the altar, but I have stopped doing that for a very long time now.

I am asking you, are you saying that all Christians and Muslims are also 禽兽? Be a man and answer yes or no. Laughing

Hiding behind the keyboard name calling me is not the way to show you got bolls. If you got no bolls, I don't want to waste my time having a war of words with you. You can call me names. I can also call you names, you know. You don't prove you are smart or BRAVE by doing that eh.

So I will tell you once again, no way am I going get on my knees to worship Guan Gong. If you are not happy with that, that's your problem right. So what man. Laughing
