“Sarawak Elections after Lent….??”

Sarawak CM Taib knows that the “Bible” issue is now very hot of the racks. He will not be pushed into calling for a dissolution anytime now as he will be seen as being very disrespectful to the Christian community which makes up nearly half of the voters in Sarawak.

Many are speculating that he has the date already set up on the 9th of April and polling will be on 16th. Consider this writeup from Wikipedia and tell me whether CM Taib will take the chances of annoying and turning it into anger for the Christian community.

(  Wednesday March 9th- Sunday 24th April 2011 )

Lent in the Christian tradition, is the period of the liturgical year from Ash Wednesday to Easter. The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer — through prayer, repentance, almsgiving and self-denial — for the annual commemoration during Holy Week of the Death and Resurrection of Jesus, which recalls the events linked to the Passion of Christ and culminates in Easter, the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

According to the Canonical gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, Jesus spent forty days fasting in the desert before the beginning of his public ministry, where he endured temptation by Satan.[1][2] Thus, Lent is described as being forty days long, though different denominations calculate the forty days differently.

This practice is common to much of Christendom, being celebrated by Catholics, Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians, and Anglicans.[3][3][4][4] Lent is increasingly being observed by other denominations as well, even such groups that have historically ignored Lent, such as Baptists and Mennonites.

If you are CM Taib will choose any of the dates during this time…???
