    i’m trying to be as non-partisan as possible here so, this post will prolly sting both ways

    i think, the pro 377A camp (haha, camp) – while being whatever we call them – do have a right to their opinion too and well, it’s sad to sometimes see the anti 377A faction hurling personal attacks and making assumptions just because they support 377A. among the blogs i read and the people i know it’s almost a kneejerk response: ‘you support 377A? you’re therefore an irrational narrowminded fundie LALALALA I REFUSE TO HEAR WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY’

    while they are ignorant about why 377A should be repealed, we too are pretty ignorant about what makes them feel that way

    Linus Chua wrote in his blog:

    “we have been concerned about recent appeals to the government to decriminalize sodomy…

    we believe that the Bible alone is the Word of the Living and True God, and is thus the highest standard and authority in all matters relating to the faith, life and practice for all mankind….

    the Bible clearly condemns homosexuality as a sin, i.e. a breaking of God’s law…

    the Bible and not science must determine morality…

    the Bible views sodomy as a crime which all States have the responsibility before God to punish (Leviticus 18:22-30, 20:13, Romans 13:1-4).

    we would humbly urge the government of Singapore to uphold civil morality and righteousness in our land by refusing to decriminalize homosexuality and by penalizing those who openly and unashamedly transgress this law.”

    Sounds pretty fundie to me

    People have as much right to be fundie as to be horny.
