Anglican Province in SEA (APSEA) should apologise to Christians to call themself "Non legal entity".
Bopim demanded that the church apologise to Christians in the country, especially its congregation, put back the cross where it rightfully belongs, promise not to cave in to fringe groups, stand up for constitutional rights including the separation of church and state and the rule of law. Action of church shameful, says NGO Published on: Thursday, April 23, 2015 Email to a friend Printer Friendly Kota Kinabalu: The church at Taman Medan in Petaling Jaya shamed Malaysians, especially in the Christian heartland of the country, Sabah and Sarawak, for not knowing its rights under the Federal Constitution, said UK-based Borneo's Plight in Malaysia Foundation (Bopim). "Such a thing could never happen in Sabah or Sarawak. We will not allow it," said its President Daniel John Jambun, adding Muslims who claimed that the cross on the wall's exterior was a challenge to Islam "don't know what their faith is all about." Bopim, an apolitical human rights NGO, expressed surprise that the Church in Taman Medan, caved-in to threats and intimidation and quickly brought down the cross in response to demands by a group of 50 unruly protesters on Sunday. It attributed the protest to "the Barisan Nasional (BN) provoking politically-motivated incidents in Pakatan Rakyat-ruled states". Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), he said, was in the shape of the biggest cross in the country. "Airplanes are in the shape of a cross. Then, we have the plus sign and many other things in the shape of a cross." The church's "cowardly tail between the legs" reaction was shameful, humiliating and hurts our feelings and sentiments, he said. Bopim demanded that the church apologise to Christians in the country, especially its congregation, put back the cross where it rightfully belongs, promise not to cave in to fringe groups, stand up for constitutional rights including the separation of church and state and the rule of law. Bopim also advised the church to pursue legal options in dealing with the protesters, reportedly sparked off by a WhatsApp group chat. "The church should lodge a police report," said Daniel. "It should also send a letter of demand to the leaders of the group to apologise for the incident on Sunday, publish the apology in the media, retract all demands and statements, promise never to repeat them and compensate the church." If the group ignores the letter of demand, Daniel said the next course of action should be to haul them to court in a civil action suit. "Let the court decide." The NGO expressed confidence that Home Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi would make good his pledge and charge the 50 protesters, including the IGP's brother, under the Sedition Act.

The financial part in the Court settled but what about the E-Court and the PAC report plus recommendation?
The E-Court once convened would confirm APSEA is not "non legal entity" to the world. April 22, 2015 - 5:04 am joshuakong823 Your comment is awaiting moderation. Where would this money come from ? From the tithes of the churches? I am also in the midst of writing a book on BISHOPGATE in Anglican Sabah for a proper record and public dissemination. Would appreciate that the Court would also release the PAC report and the recommendation plus the convening of the E-Court in the absence of the recalcitrant bishop to bring the whole episode to rest for a better APSEA.. http://thetrutheng.com/2015/04/21/house-of-bishop-finally-paid-up/comment-page-1/#comment-15840 April 21, 2015 House of Bishop Finally Paid Up We praise God for finally bringing the legal dispute between the Legal Action Task Force and The House of Bishops to a positive outcome with the receipt of the payment awarded to the plaintiff by the Appeals Court from the House of Bishops. The payment had been long overdue but we rejoice that further action to recover the debt is no longer necessary since the payment had been received. The Legal Action Task force will meet soon to disburse the accumulated money in our account and will inform you again when we had made a decision. After everything is all said and done, we will publish and close the account and dissolve the Legal Action Task Force. We like to thank all concerned who had supported our cause with prayers, encouragement and financial resources. Without your support we may not have reached this level of defending the Church against the might of those in a position of power. The Lord had been truly gracious to us. Legal Action Task Force

Anything would surprise you? Why so special in a solitary memorial ground in Fook LU siew zone? I don't have the photo but I am told access to that place is "restricted" with double gates to get to the memorial place. Why like that? What is that? When bought? whose money? who bought it? How can that be for God's servant? Do we think we can reserve a place in heaven to be with Jesus?

Australia: Churches Burned to the Ground Easter Holiday Apr 14, 2015 by Eliyokim Cohen in DIASPORA st-james-church In the days before Easter, Christianity’s holiest time, no fewer than four Melbourne churches were torched. Haven’t heard about this? Of course not. The left applauds such destruction and desecration, as long as it’s a church or even a synagogue. If it’s a Hindu or Sikh temple, the media will only report on it if they can spin as an act of ‘islamophobia,” alleging that the vandals actually meant to attack Muslims. But if someone leaves bacon on the door handle of a mosque, they serve prison time. If someone vandalizes a mosque, non-Muslims are excoriated — even when the perp is Muslim (which it is the majority of the time). “Opinion: Leftist media seems to be deaf when it comes to crimes against Christians,” The Courier Mail, April 10, 2015 CRITICISE Islam and you’re an “Islamophobe”. You risk court, as two Christian pastors in Melbourne found in 2004. But criticise Christianity – celebrate even the burning of a church – and you’re a “progressive”. The ABC is your friend. Islamophobia bad; Christophobia good. Take last week. In the days before Easter, Christianity’s holiest time, no fewer than four Melbourne churches were torched. Brighton’s-Catholic-Church-of-St-James-was-burned-down The loveliest, Brighton’s Catholic Church of St James, was burned down, its magnificent stained glass, bells and organ destroyed. This was not just an attack on a building, but on a community pledged to goodness. As the St James website reminds parishioners, each have “special talents or gifts … given to us for the enrichment of the lives of others and so that we can serve God better”. So “visit the sick and elderly, feed the hungry, teach those who want to learn, console the lonely and sorrowful …” When St James was destroyed, actor Rachel Griffiths was given sympathetic time on Melbourne ABC radio to say how good she felt. Such teachings have already inspired Christians to create the Red Cross, St John Ambulance, Royal Flying Doctor Service, Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul Society, World Vision and many fine private hospitals, hospices and schools. Yet when St James was destroyed, actor Rachel Griffiths was given sympathetic time on Melbourne ABC radio to say how good she felt. “I was quite elated, like many of my generation, when I heard the news,” she said. See, this church had – more than three decades ago – employed a paedophile priest, so “it’s always been a difficult building for us to drive past”. This church must be burned for the sins of one priest? Should we also burn your Hollywood for the crimes of Roman Polanski, Ms Griffiths? As Anglican priest Mark Durie, an adjunct research fellow of the Centre for the Study of Islam and Other Faiths at the Melbourne School of Theology, says: “There is a kind of popular mood of hatred of Christianity.” The media class is responsible for much of it, often savaging Christianity in a way it wouldn’t dream of doing to Islam. For instance, Fairfax newspapers and the ABC in 2011 damned an obscure US pastor for threatening to burn copies of the Koran. Yet Australian filmmaker Corey Sinclair marked Easter Monday with a column in the NT News attacking his Christian relatives and boasting of “a small bible they handed out at one sing-a-long that my friends ended up using for joint paper”. Or take the reaction three years ago to Innocence of Muslims, a laughably bad YouTube clip crudely satirising Islam. Then-prime minister Julia Gillard called it “truly disgusting” and The Age published a polemic attacking such “Islamophobia”. Yet SBS marked Easter Sunday – the day of Christ’s supposed resurrection – by screening Monty Python’s Life of Brian, a film mocking Christ as “just a naughty boy”. No respect? No problem. http://www.jewsnews.co.il/2015/04/14/australia-churches-burned-to-the-ground-easter-holiday/

Why in Fook Lu Siew's private area under gate? who want his corpse? Who paid for this burial ground? Is he really DEAD? If in the mile 5 , Jalan tuaran, it is an OPEN ground with access to all people. So the question starts here...why so special??
Never to be swept under the carpet...in ADOS... It was reported in blog that AVCF as bishop of Sabah handed a thick dossier to Yong PC. It was reported that Yong PC was embarrassed. so where is that dossier? Now it is timely that the new bishop elect Meltar J Tais provide a dossier of AVCF before he is LEGALLY ordained on 19 May, 2015 as Bishop of Sabah. MJT should be able to do that as he was "crony" of AVCF. We want change in ADOS, and MJT must come clean and with "unclean" hands, MJT is doomed to fail or fall in ADOS. Church of God cannot afford to do that. Who are we serving then ? God or Man?? ADOS needs to have a system of restoration and reconstruction or should be disbanded.
Who are the robbers of God's money? Bishop AVCF - the illegal bishop. The Standing Committee together with the Diocese Chancellor and the Hon Treasurer? The synod of 2014 who allowed the "robbery". God is watching.
