Indonesia is not only characterized by a diversity of cultures, every culture is characterized by diversity. There is simply no one, pure form of practicing a religion. Even if a pure religion did exist, we could have no way of knowing it. Even when an Indonesian morality does exist we have to ask the question: Who has the right to declare what is morally right and wrong? President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono? The police? Judges? Religious organizations? My students themselves? Or their parents and teachers?
