In Malaysia, 2 sets of Morality.

Funny when reading report about the Malaysia MCA sex video in Malaysiakini. Why the hype? Since when that somebody's business is anybody's business?
Even his colleague in MCA doesnt want to comment about it. Simply because its none of his business.

So what if our Minister Chua Soi Lek has regular afternoon, or night rendezvous at some hotel room with someone other than his wife? Its not a crime. He doesnt commit any crime. And its none of mine or your business.

Chua Soi Lek is not a Muslim, so please dont use Muslim yardstick of morality against him.

Nevertheless, I respect him for owning up to the reports and quash the finger pointing. What can we say, he is a brave man.
Politically, I dont think this 'scandal' would affect his political staying power.

Now we know that he is not just politically 'virile' but he also really a virile man as well. The lady voters might appreciate that. The men might also begrudgingly nod in agreement.

this is called the X Factor.

Voters dont vote for impotent men. Thats for sure. They like their leader project the image of being strong, powerful and 'ahem' virile. See that Jacob Zuma has been elected to be Chief of ANC? He has a few wives, and admit to raping a HIV positive daughter of family friend. What did South African voters see in him? He is virile. So he is a strong leader!

Here is the link to question and answer session of Chua Soi Lek.

If Minister Chua Soi Lek is a Muslim, then that is different matter. A Muslim is expected to adhere to a set of moral standard. BUT if the Muslim leader has more than ONE wife and lots of children, then people would vote for him. Yes the X Factor again.

Agreed! It's his private matter and I really feel that those people who caught the video should be punished instead. Furthermore the thing happen in a hotel room.. I mean is there no more privacy in our country? It doesn't matter la whether he is muslim or non-muslim but this has nothing to do with his cabinet portfolio. On this one, Chua is only answerable to God and his own wife. He is a brave man sure!
