Many Malaysians have not heard of this portal named The Micah Mandate.
It is a Christian-based news portal that claims to advocate love and justice.
However, if one would take a closer look at the contents of the portal, it is essentially dedicated to campaigning against the Barisan Nasional government.
The convenor and founder of this portal is one Goh Keat Peng – who is a member of the Parti Keadilan Rakyat disciplinary committee and at one time, a member of the party’s supreme council.
He is also a confidante of Wan Azizah. He has also been arrested and charged before for taking part in an illegal demonstration.
Besides his active involvement in PKR, he is also actively involved in World Vision and in church activities in Klang Valley.
A well-known figure within the church community, he does not hide his disdain for the BN and regard Anwar Ibrahim as the saviour.
The website is regularly filled with articles and comments praising PR parties and personalities linked to the opposition.
The use of the pulpit, calls to church goers to pray and fast in the name of change with subtle messages of helping to bring PR into power and sarcastic remarks made by some church leaders during church sermons and masses have put the neutrality of the church in question.
The church leadership should come out and state that it is not taking sides in the coming elections.
By keeping silent, it has given the impression to many Malaysians including Christians who support the BN that it is a political player.
Previously, PAS politicians claims to be ulamaks and claims to be men of God, claiming to speak on behalf God.
Have Christian pastors and priests now join the ranks of these politically ambitious PAS leaders using God’s name?
