LGBT Not Aping American Ways


Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. —Deuteronomy 6:4-5

Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD. —Leviticus 19:18

It was alleged by well known reporter Bertha Hansen that Pastor Lawrence Khong and the LGBT movement are "aping" American ways in their adversarial approach. She also linked to another article talking about a contest of space between red, whilte, and Pink.

If we were aping the American way, we would have Stonewall which was ironically a mini riot at a Gay bar led by Transgenders and Cross dressers. But that was 40 years ago. They were all arrested but sparked a response to stand up for one's basic rights. There is a universal drive for dignity and respect not necesarrily American.

The Singaporean way is to mix Red and White the National colours, and just wear Pink, for all are included in this amazing country of wealth and opportunities.

The reality is that

  • Gays are Singaporean too. They pay taxes and served the NS.

  • They exist and are who they are irrespective of religion, culture and race. Gays are not calling for Stonewall.

  • They are having a picnic once a year.

  • The churches have their space with thousands services every week with the mega churches having many Amercian visiting speakers.

  • The right to love and be loved is universal. It is beyond what society should reasonably legislate as a matter of public interest.

The Religious Right, the radical christians, has lost the fight in the US and now spreading their hate and rethoric to Africa and Asia. For Bertha to associate the LGBT and the Christian Right in the same grouping is sad after all that gays have suffered in the hands of the people of faith.

The reality is more complicated that simply grouping gays and Lawrence Khong as adversarial.

  • Pastor Lawrence Khong is not "aping" American ways. He is an American Apostle under the New Apostolic Reformation of C. Peter Wagner. It teaches the 7 mountains theology where the Christian Church is to influence the secular mountains of the world using gays as the wedge issue.

  • Pink Dot is just having a picnic once a year which is not adversarial in nature, and without attacking the Government, churches or religion.

  • Pastor Lawrence Khong is adversarial going out of his space to enter into the secular insisting that gays be jailed and all rights taken away. He preaches very regularly in churches and in the secular space in his animosity against gays.

  • It is not a contest of space between red, white, and pink. It is only a pink dot. The churches have their space in the thousands of churches with preaches from the US gracing the mega churches each week. It is hypocrisy when LGBT has no space even an animal barn at the Inn to give birth.

To put both lawrence and LGBT in the same grouping as advesarial and fighting for space is very hurting. LGBT peoples are not fighting for space to promote an alleged lifestyle. They are innate as who they are. Hence, are Pink by themselves. It is a coming out that makes Pink Dot a threat.

Perhaps what is so upsetting is the lack of adversarial nature of GLBT. They refused to react to the threats. When Pastor lawrence attacked them, they are asked for dialogue. If they were straight and religiously radicalised, there would have been trouble! if so many basic rights were taken away. They are practicing the Christian Faith of loving thy neighbour.

Ultimately Love Wins Out. Wearing Pink is about Love, loving ourselves by coming out, and Loving Others by not reacting with the same hate and rethoric but giving grace and mercy.
