    And just an FYI, I was born Roman Catholic and am from a country that has many fanatical Christians who have their own churches. These loud mouth radical Christians criticize everyone else who does not follow exactly their church. I've never asked people if they are Christian nor preached religion, yet I see this more and more all the time.

    So, all that to say, please stop abusing that word or using it as a catch-all for huge numbers of people.
    I don't care if you were born human.

    HTF can someone be a believer in the sense you mean and not be religious. Believe in what? "I believe I'll have another beer?"

    Go to North Sumatra and see how many churches there are with crosses on the roof. Maybe they are not Christian? Or.. but I don't watch enough SyFy channel?

    Why are they there? Monk comes from Germany asks the locals if they want to be Christian. They ask what's in it for them. He answers "You get Sunday off" Their response? Where do we sign!

    In the context of Medan there maybe non Muslims who are anti having a good time. But are also a lot of Chinese in Medan, some Christian and some non denominational ( in the conventional sense) and they love a bit of "karaoke"

    There are also "discos" in Parapat, Pekanbaru, Palembang, et al.

    Bit down market but there is also Bukit Maraja



    This place is called localization familiar Maraja Hill (BM), as it provides Commercial Sex Workers (CSWs).

    In addition, there is also supply liquor (Miras) and drugs
    We live in Asia. There is hanky-panky everywhere. Logging truck drivers stop at roadside "houses" and while they are being "entertained" someone from the establishment siphons off 20l of diesel as payment.

    It is after all the oldest profession.
    No one on TD is gay. If suspect, it was probably because of the way they were reared.
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.
    You people, you think I know feck nothing; I tell you: I know feck all
    How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it.

    If you go to Medan, try to make it for more then a day and go to lake toba. It's a giant crater of an old volcano. Very nice and cooling. The lake itself is bigger then Singapore. The town there is called bastagi, I was there is the 80's and it was a nice holiday. But you will need more then 2 days, maybe 3 if you include the lake area. But god help us if the volcano comes alive as it sits on a fault line.
