About 6,000 worshippers from Faith Community Baptist Church, decked out in white, packed the halls of Suntec City Convention Centre this evening (June 29) for a special service celebrating family.
The church’s Senior Pastor Lawrence Khong delivered a sermon for over an hour, addressing the issue of family and calling on parents to be role models for their children.
Referring to the ongoing debate over homosexuality, Mr Khong said that he was not pushing a religious agenda but taking a stand on a social and moral issue.
Adding that he is doing this out of his love for Singapore and the generations to come, he said that he was “confounded” at being described as confrontational. The Pink Dot event in support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community that took place yesterday, he noted, was a “political gathering with a political agenda to change the law of our land”.
Mr Khong added that his stand on the family unit is that it is one made up of a man and a woman, which is also the Singapore Government’s stand.
