…writes something that should be rather devastating for American readers to hear:

I am a Malaysian by birth, a Chinese through ancestry, a Catholic by God´s grace, and this thorny issue has frustrated me ever since. Prayers are the only consolation that we can have for now.

It’s that PS that should give us pause.

Dear reader, may God protect and prosper the Church in Malaysia through Christ our Lord and the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary! And thank you for your prayers for our sad de-Christianizing country. We certain do need them!
