Open Letter to the Prime Minister

Mr Lee Hsien Loong
Prime Minister
Prime Minister's Office
Orchard Road
Singapore 238823

Dear Mr Prime Minister,

RETENTION OF SECTION 377A, PENAL CODEAs concerned citizens of Singapore, we support the government in wanting to retain S377A of the Penal Code for the good of our children, our families and all Singaporeans.There are many reasons why the retention of S377A is so important:S377A is a reflection of the sentiments of the majority of society. Most Singaporeans hold conservative family values and do not accept homosexuality as the norm. (see Singaporeans’ Attitudes toward Lesbians and Gay Men and their Tolerance of Media Portrayals of Homosexuality, by Benjamin H. Detenber, Mark Cenite, et. al., International Journal of Public Opinion Research) Repealing S377A is a vehicle to force homosexuality on a conservative population that is not ready for homosexuality.Sexual preference is not about civil rights and has nothing to do with equality or tolerance. Repealing S377A would in fact be the first step towards mainstreaming the homosexual lifestyle, which has been shown elsewhere to lead to:
Calls to specify the minimum age for consensual homosexual sex;
A public education system that teaches acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle under the banner of "tolerance";
The redefinition of marriage to include (gay) civil unions and same-sex marriages, and to extend marriage and parenthood benefits to them;
Adoption by same-sex parents.
In short, repealing S377A could lead to the modification of core family values and the family unit as we know it.
The majority of Singaporeans want our children to grow up in a traditional environment that espouses healthy and wholesome traditional family values. We do not want the homosexual lifestyle to be promoted or celebrated.
We ask the Government to do what is right and retain S377A for the future of our children and our nation.

The death of a triad leader brought in a chain of activities that will change the relationship of two brothers forever. When his father was killed, Michael Miu had to step up to take over the 'family business' - the triad headed by his father. While Michael tries to change the business to be a more corporate organisation, rival triad members who disapproved of his revolutionary ways frames him and Michael ends up in jail. Andy Lau plays the police inspector who has been investigating the movement of the triad, ensuring that Michael goes to jail. In the meantime, Michael calls his brother Eason to come back to Hong Kong to be the next head of the triad. Twenty years ago, their father sent Eason overseas to study for there was a prediction that the two brothers will to fight over the family business that will tear the whole organisation apart.
