LOVE SINGAPORE AND PASTOR LAWRENCE KHONG IS NOT HOMOPHOBIC

THEREALSINGAPORE 18 February 2014 - 12:57pm

I just downloaded this and had a quick read. Lawrence Khong and company claim that they are not homophobic. I take it to mean that they will not be violent crusaders of the past. However they will work to prevent the social enlargement of LGBT. On the other hand LGBT people wants to live with all the rights like the rest of us including the right to marry and adopt kids of their own. I suppose if it were possible for science to show how two same sex gametes could produce a baby, they will want that. That is science fiction at the furthest end for now.

THEREALSINGAPORE 18 February 2014 - 12:39pm

I refer to the article “Balance between local and foreign workers a “tricky issue”: Tan Chuan-Jin” (Straits Times, Feb 16). It states that “His priority is to look after Singaporeans, he said, but the balance between local and foreign workers is a “tricky issue” and Singapore cannot shut its doors to foreigners. “If we swing too far the other way… some of these companies might find it better off to operate somewhere else,” he said, adding that it will then lead to job losses for locals.” What are the implications of our liberal foreign labour policies?
