Animal Farm revisited

The ending of this animated version may be different from George Orwell’s classic, but it is no less compelling.

If the sound on this version is too faint, try this copy.

All of us need to be familiar with this tale so that we can be aware of how some of those who ride on people’s aspirations for greater justice and freedom can sometimes betray those very same aspirations.

Be warned that sometimes, those who place themselves in positions of power, purportedly to protect the people’s interest, may end up living off the wealth produced from the labour of the masses, who toil long and hard with little to show in return.

Highly relevant for our times.

Because the government made me study BM as medium of instruction, my English is not good to understand the Bible in English. I need a BN version of Injil for me to get in touch with my God.

As a Christian I am not ashame of my faith. However we must tread with care. The ‘Allah’ lawsuit, Herald vs Govt, results in a few churches burnt.

As Christians we should not compromise on our religion. I wonder why the prolonged silence from the Christian Aduns and MPs? Hey! you guys! If you want our vote, do your part to protect our religion or else you can kiss our vote good-bye.
