Woman Jailed for Tea-Pot Worshipping

“A woman has been jailed in Malaysia for joining a “tea-pot worshipping” cult. Kamariah Ali, a 57 year old former teacher, was arrested in 2005 when the government of the Muslim majority country demolished the two storey high sacred tea pot of the Sky Kingdom cult.

For the sect, which emphasised ecumenical dialogue between religions, the tea pot symbolized the purity of water and “love pouring from heaven”. But in Malaysia, despite constitutional guarantees of freedom of worship, born Muslims such as Mrs Ali are forbidden from converting to other religions.”

  1. As there was no celestial teapot to be found, humanity had to create one.

    What a humorless, ugly, oppressive, tedious, obsolete and offensive superstition is Islam when it comes to political power.

  2. Same with any religion or culture when it acquires a monopoly

    Would you rather be vivisected and your organs sold to over-sea’s customers by a Non religious Communist government of China?Or be unable to pick your nose without the secret Service knowing Like in the former soviet union?
    Or even have dissident journalist assassinated in eastern europe?

    You sound like a bigot…just saying

  3. John Paul: Your (and anyone’s) criticisms always welcome. Encouraged! It keeps me thinking and keeps me honest.

    I’m not sure that I’d disagree that when any religion comes to power it is equally humorless, ugly, oppressive, tedious, obsolete and offensive.

    I will disagree that all cultures are equally so. It’s a taboo thing to say, even among the outside-the-box thinkers of the occult world, but that’s what I say. Some cultures kill far more people than others. Not just accidentally or statistically, but as a part of their very fiber.

    I am no friend to any socialist state, either.

    If the worst thing you say about me is true, that I’m a bigot, that still leaves me on the moral high ground when it comes to any Islamic state. I think bad thoughts, but I don’t stone people to death, or throw acid in their face, or fly planes into buildings.

  4. Better than sounding like a useful idiot. Just saying.

  5. Well I think the issue is with the concept of orthodoxy,it was created as a platform for the singular purpose of politics and thus a state,which all have been violent not just the “monotheistic” cultures.Communist china(atheist) have destroyed THOUSANDS of religious structors(mainly buddhist/daoist) putting to shame any theistic fundamentalist.As for your specific arguments about fanatics flying planes into buildings etc,thouse are almost laughable compared to the HUNDREDS of millions killed in wars,Do you honestly think its some how morally superior to napalm some starving villagers or carpet bomb a city?

    Al-queda or ANY terrorist group(IRA,Basque seperatist,farc etc) are absolutly nothing in Comparison to the atrocities of the “coalition of the willing” or whatever bunch of assholes want to call themselves.Violence for political cause is not somehow more legit if its done by a million then done by a dozen.

    This isn’t to say that the stuff you mentioned is good or acceptable its just predictable,orthodoxy wants to remain the establishment like any other,it has nothing to do with spirituality its about business.The reason such hard edged orthodoxies arise is because of human nature nothing else.

  6. John Paul: I suggest you are attributing beliefs and words to me that I do not hold and have not said. – Trevor

  7. I would also add that culturally the self declared Enlightened Secular states have been in almost constant war since their conception.certainly development organizes that violence and refines the expression of it but it is still violence.

  8. Sorry I’m just sick of islam bashing.I’m just used to working with rednecks all day.
