I have some gay friends who are pretty great in life, happily married, and adopting a son whom they love very much. As one of them told me recently, “I’ve never once received a copy of the Gay Agenda!” Well, here it is … shocking, I know.

Pink Dot Singapore organisers to deploy Security Personnel

Organisers of the annual event in Singapore, Pink Dot Singapore – a gathering to support the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Community and the Freedom to Love with Openness, Acceptance, hoping to bring LGBT closer to their family and friends – will be deploying security personnel at the Hong Lim Park for the first time in six years due to the recent events from other groups.

According to an interview with TODAY, Pink Dot spokesperson Paerin Choa said that the security arrangements were put in place for crowd control and to manage any unruly behavior given recent developments. He said, “If (those who oppose the event) do come down, we will welcome them with open arms. We’re aware that they might come down and have a crisis management plan in place … We’ve also engaged security personnel, but more because of potential crowd issues.”

Paerin Chao said the event is solely about inclusiveness and diversity, and the organisers are not advocating other causes. “We support the repeal of Section 377A (which criminalises sex between men). However, our resources are not meant to advocate … we want to change society’s attitude. We also believe that when society’s attitude has changed, all these laws and regulations will naturally also change.”

He added: “Pink Dot has always been a social movement to change hearts and minds. When we first started in 2009, homosexuality in Singapore was taboo.” In fact, what has happened showed that discrimination is “still very much alive in Singapore, in certain segments of society.”

Mr Choa reiterated the organisers’ position — which they spelt out in a media statement on Tuesday — that they are open to dialogue with those who oppose their event. He added that Reverend Miak Siew of the Free Community Church had tried in vain to reach out to Mr Khong.

Events from the other groups in response to Pink Dot Singapore

Wear White Campaign

Mr. Ustaz Noor Deros, an Islamic religious teacher, has launched an online Facebook page asking Muslims in Singapore to wear white on the same day of Pink Dot Singapore to protest against homosexuality and defend traditional family values, and asking them to “return to fitrah”, and support what is good and pure.

 

Church must work with like-minded groups to oppose Pink Dot: Pastor Lawrence Khong

On the other hand, Faith Community Baptist Church senior pastor Lawrence Khong said on Monday (June 23): “It is time for the church to work with like-minded groups (such as Muslims) to register our opposition (to the event) before it is too late.”

 

Personal View: Looking and reading up about all these makes me feel sad for them. As they do not really understand what is Openness, Acceptance and LOVE.
I am speechless because of their actions, for they surely do not have the heart to care for others who are different from them.

 

Statement from Nationa Council Churches in Singapore (NCCS)

National Council of Churches in Singapore (NCCS) issued a statement with regards to the Pink Dot controversy to ease the tensions between the different groups.
The statement, issued on Wednesday (June 25), said that although “homosexual or bi-sexual practices are contrary to the teaching of the Bible”, the NCCS “does not condemn those who are struggling with their gender identity and sexual orientation”.
It also urged members of the Christian community to “always act with grace and restraint should they engage with the LGBT community over the coming (Pink Dot rally) event”.

 

 

Lastly, I would like to put in a penny of my thoughts regards to the matter that are clearly involved with 3 groups:
Pink Dot Singapore, which represents the LGBT Communities in Singapore.
Mr. Ustaz Noor Deros, an Islamic Religious Teacher who clearly represents the Islamic in Singapore.
Pastor Lawrence Khong, Senior Pastor of Faith Community Baptist Church, who stands up as a representative of Christianity in Singapore.

I do not wish to put my own opinions and views into the religious group, as I am neither a Muslim nor a Christian so therefore I can’t and won’t say anything against them. But I would urge anyone and everyone to spare a few minutes and view a couple of videos which I have shared below.
If anyone within the LGBT community has a choice to be who and what they are, no one would want to be the discriminated ones, the outcasts and the unwanted group. But do you think they have a choice?

 

 

When did you choose to be Straight?
