This small group of Christian of ECLM comprising some 3, 650 members is of Tamil origin. It has 21 congregations nationwide and one of four Lutheran bodies in Malaysia.
The current bishop of the ECLM is the Rt Rev Solomon Rajah.
So it is just a small group of people of Malaysia but it has made big news yesterday.
What was written in Malaysiakini as quoted below:-
Dua pemimpin Kristian hari berkata laporan memetik kenyataan mereka dalam Mingguan Malaysia semalam, yang didakwa mengkritik ketua menteri Pulau Pinang, adalah “penipuan semata-mata”.
Biskop Gereja Lutheran Evangelical, Solomon Rajah dan bekas presiden Majlis Gereja Malaysia Thomas Philips hari ini berkata, kenyataan mereka dilaporkan di luar konteks dalam berita bertajuk ‘Gereja bukan tempat politik’.
Di lapurkan diluar kontek. So, what is the inside context?. Is it anything to do with religion or is it with politics?
The people have the right to know. We don’t want to be off-informed. For all keadilan of the people and the right to know we want the truth.
We don’t want a repeat of Dr Mansor’s press conference in our state of Penang.
Can anyone please help to explain?
