Free Sex

Mar 14th, 2007, in News, by

South Kalimantan has a free sex problem.

In the South Kalimantan parliament there is cross-party support for the idea of requiring students to undergo extra religious education classes before or after school in order to tackle the poor morals of the younger generation these days.

Nur Izatil Hasanah of Golkar, the head of Commission IV in the regional parliament, says the example of West Sumatra should be imitated and extra hours of religious study be added on to students' days. The need was greatest for those students attending government schools, he said, because they only had two hours a week of religious instruction in the normal school schedule.

Nur Izatil Hasanah also urged that parents, teachers, and people in general keep a much tighter watch on young people, given the latter's tendency to engage in "free" behaviour which was not in accordance with legal and religious norms.

Reproductive or sex education was likely to give young people the idea of trying things out for themselves, said Zatil.

Zatil's colleague, Rahmat Nopliardy from the Partai Amanat Nasional (PAN), agreed on the need for extra religious classes and said the Quran was a great weapon in the battle against free sex, free sex being behaviour which could cause woe in both this life and the next.

Rahmat advised that schools should teach the Quran one hour before normal classes started, because God had taught that those who held fast to the Quran would have their reward.

God promised that, and God never goes back on his promises.

Students should first learn to read the Quran, then understand its meaning, then put it into practice.

If students, teachers, or parents complained about the new early start to school, for the Quranic classes, then their bad attitude should be questioned. republika

I think a true Muslim would not object to an early start in order to learn the Quran.

    There are some serious problems in south kalimantan and it’s not the free sex.

    The statements of Mr Hasanah and his ilk would be hilarious if the implications were not so scary. I thought that sex education for young adults was a good thing – might keep a few from early pregnancies or venereal diseases, and free them from a host of other misconceptions about sex that may give them some hangups later on in life. Wish I had it when I was a kid. Teenagers are going to “try things out for themselves sooner or later anyways”, why not have the tools to make an informed choice. What’s more immoral- a 16 year old experimenting with sex or a 16 year old being forced to leave school because she is pregnant due to a lack of knowledge of birth control? Kids these days are a whole lot more clever then we give them credit for. If you give them sex education chances are they will put the knowledge to good use. If you deny them the education and just tell them that sex is taboo – don’t do it – chances are they will do it just because you said they can’t.

    Anyways if Pak Hasanah & co. think that (sex) EDUCATION is not a good idea for students than what should we do with those young spongelike minds? Of course you could always get them to memorize the Koran. A laudable plan but since the Koran they are memorizing is in ARABIC wouldn’t it be better to TEACH them Arabic first? That way they are LEARNING their religion firsthand so to speak rather then relying on some other guys take on it. Is a public school really the venue for this sort of education anyways? Wouldn’t a pesantren be more suitable? There seems to be a whole lot of focus on memorizing here but very little learning.

    And just for that extra incentive.

    If students, teachers, or parents complained about the new early start to school, for the Quranic classes, then their bad attitude should be questioned.

    I really like that line, give the parents a guilt/fear trip because they don’t want to put have their kids indoctrinated. Even better it opens up whole opportunities for witch hunts for people with bad attitude.

    Funny and a little bit scary. There’s no place like home.

    What a bunch of howlers, these are the leaders of the nation??

    “Reproductive or sex education was likely to give young people the idea of trying things out for themselves, “

    Ya that’s the way! Keep them poor and ignorant, better still ensure that young people have no idea of AIDS, STD’s, becasue everyone knows all those husbands and boyfriends are faithful little fellows.

    Barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen, gotta love it.

    “If students, teachers, or parents complained about the new early start to school, for the Quranic classes, then their bad attitude should be questioned.”

    Who said religion is just used to keep the masses under control. Do what I say or God’s gonna get ya! Just how do you get nominated as God’s Perfect, seems the bar is not very high.

    “greatest for those students attending government schools, he said, because they only had two hours a week of religious instruction in the normal school schedule.”

    Mmm that would be two hours divided equally amongst the five recognised religions wouldn’t it. If fact a valid point, why is religion being taught in a taxpayer funded secular school?

    I agree with pj_bali, I think the issue is not the “free sex” but the education of the people. Indonesians still think that “free sex” as taboo but still do it, a lot of them have hypocritical view towards sex. So rather than educating (properly) the people about sex, they ban sex, they cover it, which make it even more taboo. And as anyone (with common sense) know that people are curious to anything taboo.

    AND WHAT?? Paid Sex is holy?

    Seriously though, what a sad commentary on these guys’ total ignorance about cause and effect in human relationships. Humans, especially teen-aged ones, are naturally curious and rebellious. When they are force-fed prehistoric religious dogma, you can bet the house they’ll be humping like rabbits, just for the sport of it.

    I guess some politicians and officials badly need extra courses; i would suggest “how to cope in a rational manner with modern times” and “how to get rid of my irrational fears” or “the cure for my sex obsessions”.

    It would be nice if Mr. Hasanah & friends would disclose their real agenda. Instead of this mumbo-jumbo about free sex or whatever, they should reveal the core of the matter and that is that they want an Islamic state. When we examine the articles here on IM, the leading thread running through the articles is that Islam is seen as the medicine for a lot of social, political and natural problems by some politicians and religious leaders.

    So, Mr. Hasanah & friends, drop the mask of “concern” and show your real face!

    And if they acheive their goal, it will continue to the stream of Saudi money that continues to fill their coffers, just by spreading mythology and ignorance.

    What the hell is that Nur siti talking? She doesn’t even understand islam! Moh marry Aisha when she was six and consummate her at when she was nine! And Moh had at least 13 wives! Not to mention all the concubines! Compared to pedo Moh sex in kalimantan is like a picnic!

    This seems to be a new variation on: “You’re either with us or against us”, another nice example of a false dilemma. Instead of giving proper sex-education, send the children to Quranic classes and put the fear-clamp on the parents.

    I have another idea for the young of Kalimantan: Forget your Qu’ran and have sex as much as you can. Sex is good thing if you use condom. And say “go to hell” to the old corrupted generation who try to forbid what they did when they where younger.

    I am very proud of the young Kalimantanese generation.

    I still think that free sex is not good, not just because of the religious stuff. It is the motivation and the way of enforcing it that becomes the shortcoming.

  12. avatar pj_bali says:

    Whether or not free sex is a good thing there is still a number of individuals who will engage in it. Given that fact they should at least receive a basic education about it, the risks involved etc. Denying them a credible source of information and offering religious instruction instead is simply denial of the problem. If leaders today could get over their moral hang-ups Indonesia could do a lot to prevent teen pregnacies and STDs.

    Kalimantanians are not great fans of any imported religion.

    I can smell rats in Pak Hasanah’s creeping shariah agenda. He should clean up his own backyard before attempting anything in Kalimantan. The single Muslim mom prostitutions is spiralling out of control in Java Island, and this phenomenon is trapping our future generation in cycle of poverty.

    Agree with everything said so far, apart from Augustos, ignorant, hate filled, bigoted, propagandist invective.

    But we can’t expect everybody on here to be of normal or above average intelligence can we? 😉

    Quote,

    Unquote.

    Sex is older than religion.

    I am not denying that a person’s adherence to his/her religious teachings will be of little guidance for him/her along the straight and narrow.

    But hold that thought for a second and question why are how do the younger generation in South Kalimantan get so much latitude in free sex.

    Another perfect example of an Indonesian parliamentarian treating the symptoms instead of the cause.

    Free Sex, Free sex, Free sex, I really don’t know what is the exact meaning of that, I think it is a dialuge of saithan, Saitan directly invlove to bombarding this matter. Human being is a noble being, human being is not a animal species, for this reason its not fit for him, if any one think there is no different between dog & him than he can do it, for your kind information if you observe a sexual attitude of a Dog, they don’t maintain free sex according to my own view, a person who supported this free sex he is lower than a dog.

    They say “free sex” is bad, but then so is “non-free sex” , … prostitution!
    Does anyone spot the logical fallacy yet?

    Anyone?

    And furthermore, if society allows the purchasing of a woman by a man (paying a dowry for marriage), what does that tell us about how women are treated in society? Are they simply male possessions to be treated as such? How do women feel about being used like this, and why do so many women desire marriage? Do some women feel OK about being forced to prostitute themselves? … or do they cede that a lifetime paycheck for their services is effectively worth it?

    I’m more inclined to believe that the father wants to pimp his daughter for dowry money, and those damn prostitutes make for some tough commercial competition.

    Question: Though Indonesians are enjoying a huge cultural adbvancement like, enjoying party, going casino, having frequent sex, changing partner. Even the prostitution are well developed in some big cities, But is the Indonesian government declared it as open sex country? Is it approved by parliamnet? I mean could we say Indonesia are free sex country?
