Win of the century.
Two days after its launch, the Department of Tourism’s (DOT) new slogan is still creating a buzz online and dividing netizens into lovers and haters. We’ve been receiving a handful of submissions about the hot topic: external links, memes, opinion pieces, and even lyrics to a “jingle.” Instead of flooding your dashboards with all of them, we picked out a few:
If you would like to share memes, we’ve opened photo reply. Also, we’d like to get your two cents on the new DOT slogan. Do you like or hate it?
OK, look, I know that the post was relatively offensive in a way or another. However, having the intention of suing people on the grounds of posting a “pathetic” status on FACEBOOK? Who’s pathetic now?
i see the first one happening but with slight differences, including minus the penetration.
When we treat God as a slot-machine, as granter of our wishes, conditional in his ways (if I do this, he will do that), as God of ‘love’ without holiness or justice, then he ceases to be God, bereft of any feelings, distant and impersonal, a tin god whom we can manipulate, who is blind to our mistakes, yes even blind to the bad motives of our wishes… Any god like that whom we have tamed in our own heads would be a god we have made in our likeness, a cruel and limited demigod limited in that decorated statue, powerless to give solution to our problems, unable to subdue evil and transform it as instrument for our own good. He would be a god of chances, of ‘swerte’ and ‘malas’. I won’t put my faith in such a god.
“While the thoughts of great numbers are led astray in the midst of ceremonies, priests, human lucubrations, pontifical fables, philosophic reveries, and are driven to and fro in the desert of this world, evangelical faith rises to heaven, and falls prostrate before Him who sitteth on the throne… Lord, to whom shall we go if not unto Thee? Let others follow the devices of their imaginations, or prostrate themselves before traditional superstitions, or kiss the feet of a sinful man. O King of glory! we desire but Thee alone.”
—J.H. Merle d’Aubigne, French minister and historian (1794-1872)
