Snipplets of what people are saying about AWARE

Sorry I just found the whole AWARE debate at Straits Times forum thread quite absurd. Here are some snipplets:

The open-minded Christian

It saddens me as a Christian ( which I believe literally should mean aspiring to Having a Christ like mind)) that the people who bear this name seem to have forgotten His commandment LOVE GOD AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS YOURSELF there is no othe rcommandment greater than these.

They have forgotten that it was the very act of loving and sitting with sinners that Christ was accused just as the new committee are accusing the old guard.

There is no commandment in the Bible which tells you to mattack anf make the already painful life of homosexuals harder. Please do not pick and pluck to justify your own agenda

It seems to me that the only people who have the mind like Christ are the old guard

I didn’t go to church today for various reasons (mainly deadlines to meet). On a side note, the world is changing and Christianity in America is in the decline.

In the name of Total Defense

Someone even brought in the Total Defense strategy. Do humans exist to serve these so-call strategies that humans come out with. Strategies will morph to suit the purpose of national defense.

Promote Lesbianism? What does that do to our already low procreation rate?

Where are we going to get our babies from..Where are our future soldiers going to come from ?

Where are going to get the next generation of workers and tax payers to look after the mid age and the elderly of today?

What does this do to our Health budget when STDs rise and gays demand cloning of babies?

Allowing gay activism and promotion in our schools will confuse our little girls.

This undermines our Total Defence Strategy.

Promoting Lesbianism is anti Nation building activity. Period – Shut down the lesbian movement before they shut down our beloved country with their deviant agenda !!!

Don’t be neutral. Think about the long term viability of our nation. Go to the EGM and stand up for decent family values and the Nation. Majullah Singapura!!!

I always get pissed when someone suggests cloning of babies. It’s not so much of it being unethical, it’s more of it being unneeded. Almost no one wants to see it, it’s out of touch and irrelevant in this era.

Gay movement liken to a virus invasion

Everyone is entitled to his or her own conviction. However to spread your own conviction to children without serious consideration, is like spreading virus to a healthy person. It can affect or be harmless depends on the immunity of the children. However do you think the old EXCO did the right thing? If those who think that old EXCO did the right thing by spreading the message that it was all right to have gay marriages, then there is nothing more to discuss. God bless these members of society.

I don’t have much opinion on the issue actually. I’m not even sure if AWARE is a Christian organization or it is just a general women issues organization. (I’m often unAWARE of the news.) If they’re affiliate to a religion, it is fine to spread the anti-gay sentiments as they believe. If they are not affiliated to any religion, then there is no enforcement required at all. Just don’t mix religion into any non-religious organization. I don’t think much people care about gay issues anyway.

Ultimately everyone has the right to choose what they believe in. If the organization does not align with your beliefs and you do not wish to accept their beliefs, then you’re just hijacking the organization, you really should be starting your own.

Interesting, this has become a wonderful opportunity for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) to spread awareness to the public, many of whom probably don’t care of their existence. The LGBT and Christian-haters seem to have form some sort of alliance or something. The enemy of my enemy is my friend?

  1. OMFG! Your view and my view is very identical (though I am a non-Christian and generally anti-religion), especially your last stance:
    “The enemy of my enemy is my friend?”

    It’s getting really ridiculous, and the majority of the Netizens’ views seem to be just following the herd. I guess by being unAWARE, you can see things more clearly from an outsider’s POV.

    LGBT or not, Christianity or not, those involve seem to be gaming on this issue for their own private agenda.

  2. uzyn: I couldn’t follow up with the AWARE situation as the media are moving too fast for me. I need some sort of an executive summary, haha… I am most confused with the term Old Guard which I thought was some almost mythical protector of the land or something.

    I couldn’t see the point of the debate. And the government have been rather quiet about it, presumably the involvement of religion and gay’s right to exist. I have been searching for an official statement from the parliament but I don’t think they release that yet.

  3. @KahWee just saw your reply.

    Why would the gov want to intervene. It’s a private non-profit org. And the ‘takeover’, it’s legit. Nothing wrong with it. Just that the tactics are rather dirty, but perfectly legal.

  4. uzyn: Not so much on intervene but to comment on it. I would be interested to hear the stance of the Singapore government in homosexual issues.
