Join The Petition

This post is made to continue my previous post about the “Stabbed Priest” two days ago. Apparently, there is a new progress which I found significant. After the media broadcasts this news over and over again in this past three days, several leaders from different religions agree to meet and discuss together. So far, the result is not clear yet but I really hope this meeting will bring new enlightenments for this country to solve this religious issue as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, several public figures are making another distinct respond for this. They made an online petition to gather all the people who share the same opinion about this freedom of religion issue together. Basically, this petition contains statement about how the authority must guarantee the safety of having religion and give extra concern about the freedom of religion term in Indonesia. It is a fundamental human right. No one or no group has a legal right to assault, stab or kill other religion’s followers for any kind of reason.

"Among the inestimable of our blessings, also, is that ...of liberty to worship our Creator in the way we think most agreeable to His will; ..." Thomas Jefferson (1807)

Anyway, this online petition is addressed directly to President of Indonesia, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono himself. I signed this petition last night and I’m the number 5291. I just checked the site a few minutes ago and the number of participants who sign has increased into 7157 total signatures and still counting.
As I mention before, this petition was initiated by 29 public figures in Indonesia, including journalists, artists, writers, movie producers, editor in chief, directors, and Moslem activists. All we need right now is just peace and liberty to worship our Creator and respecting each other religion at the same time. No more stabbing, terrors or intimidation stories in the future. If you’re willing to sign in the petition, you may click here. It will bring you directly to the online petition site where you can put your names and show your support. This petition is open for everyone from different kind of religions and national wide. If you agree with the term of Freedom of Religion in Indonesia, then you might be one of us.
God Bless Indonesia.
