For people who have no idea, Section 337A is the Singapore law that criminalizes sex between men. A lot of people on the internet are unhappy about the guide from the church but I have to say I don’t see what all the fuss is about.
Now I’m not saying Section 337A is a good law, but there have been a movement to repel Section 377A of the Singapore's Penal Code. Quite a number of organization has joined together to try and repel Section 377A under a number of reason like freedom, and if some organizations can organize themselves to move against the law; why can’t churches organize themselves to support the law?
As they say, what's good for the goose is good for the gander and last I heard the Vatican, the ultimate power in Christianity, is still firmly against homosexual relations between men. Is it that surprising a network of churches would be against homosexual relations between men and organizing themselves to support Section 337A? I don't find it surprising at all.
As for those of you who say a church should not comment on a civil law under the name of religion, I find that reasoning to be stupid. We have organizations who are campaigning against the law in the name of freedom, but at the same time we are saying campaigning for the law in the name of religion is wrong? That’s require verbal agility I don’t possess.
Best way to settle this; put Section 337A on a national ballot and let Singaporeans choose whether to have this law on the books. Let the people of Singapore decide the issue.
