SINGAPORE DON'T MIX RELIGION AND POLITICS


Symbol representing 8 homosexual lifestyle Proposition
SINGAPORE : The Singapore Government has said it welcomes religious groups and individuals getting active in social issues. But it has warned against mixing religion with politics.
However,
the government recognises that homosexuals are part of the society. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong (photo) had said then: "Homosexuals work in all sectors, all over the economy, in the public sector as well and in the civil service.
They are free to lead their lives, free to pursue their social activities."
That position has not changed. Deputy Prime Minister Wong Kan Seng (photo) said: "The government was not going to be pressured into changing its position on homosexuality before the takeover of Association of Women for Action (AWARE). Nor does the government intend to change its position now that the Old Guard has recaptured AWARE ."
Hence, he was gratified that the National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS) issued clear statement that it does not condone churches getting involved in the AWARE dispute, and that leaders of different religious faiths came out to reinforce the NCCS message.
Mr Wong said the government has to maintain order impartially. It encourages the development of civic society, and gradual widening of the out-of-bounds (OB) markers. But it will not stand by and watch, when intemperate activism threatens Singapore society.

He added that as Singaporeans become more educated and informed, and more space is being opened up for people to express alternative views, there will be more tussles between people holding different points of views.
