HERE IS THE BANNED PRO-GAY BOOK “AND TANGO MAKES THREE”

Dear A.S.S, Please see the attachments. I have attached the children book "And Tango Makes Three". It was removed from National Library Board shelves recently for being "anti-family". I am sending this to you because I want Singaporeans to decide what to read for themselves and not subject themselves to PAP censorship.

NTU MOE PRC SCHOLAR: I WANT TO APPLY FOR SINGAPORE PR TO BUY HDB FLAT

Due to the abrupt change in government policies, he was not invited to apply for Singapore PR upon graduation as was the norm in the past. Mr Weng is desperate to obtain a Singapore PR so that he can marry his long-time girlfriend and buy a resale HDB flat in Singapore. Singapore PR is a prized ‘catch’ for many foreigners working in Singapore not only because it helps them to find a well-paying job, they are able to use it to purchase a resale HDB flat which they can monetize eventually for a hefty profit after they leave Singapore.

A MOB OF ANGRY INDIAN WOMEN KILLED A SERIAL RAPIST WITH CHILLI POWDER & STONES

At noon, Akku Yadav was lynched by a mob of around 200 women from Kasturba Nagar. It took them 15 minutes to hack to death the man they say raped them with impunity for more than a decade. Chilli powder was thrown in his face and stones hurled. As he flailed and fought, one of his alleged victims hacked off his penis with a vegetable knife. A further 70 stab wounds were left on his body. The incident was made all the more extraordinary by its setting. Yadav was murdered not in the dark alleys of the slum, but on the shiny white marble floor of Nagpur district court.

THANK YOU NATIONAL LIBRARY BOARD (NLB) FOR UPHOLDING YOUR ROLE WITH CLARITY AND INTEGRITY

We have watched the media’s one-sided coverage regarding NLB’s decision to pull out two books from its shelves and are dismayed. NLB’s decision to remove the books has nothing to do with inclusivity but everything to do with children’s interest. Children are unable to evaluate homosexual content and stimulus at their age. They are also one of the core clienteles of our libraries. NLB owes them the responsibility to be prudent in the selection of books. It is only right that NLB acts upon its duty of looking after the interests of children.

OVERPROTECTIVE MOTHER DRIVES LONELY BOY TO SEEK PHYSICAL COMFORT IN MALE FRIEND

The mother had restricted the movements of her 13-year-old son and always told him he had to stay home after returning from school. She thought it was the safest way to keep him out of trouble or getting involved in vice activities. Only the maid was at home while both the boy's parents went to work. The mother would call several times a day to ensure he was either at school or at home. However, due to loneliness, the young teenager invited a classmate to his home and the two boys later became a "couple" and had gay sex at the house for the past three years.

VINCENT WIJEYSINGHA: SINGAPOREANS MUST BE CONCERNED WITH NATIONAL LIBRARY BOARD’S CENSORSHIP OF PRO-GAY CHILDREN BOOKS

A really serious matter of public censorship has arisen. The National Library has banned 2 books which, because of references to homosexuality, are deemed to have "conflicting content". It appears the complaint on which they acted was from a member of the "We Are Against Pink Dot" FB page. The matter of banning books is extremely serious and should get citizens very worried, regardless of your views on homosexuality. I have written to the NLB officer who carried out the ban. Please consider writing too. This is the text of my letter fyi:

GAMBLERS IN SINGAPORE PRAISE THE PAP GOVERNMENT

NEW COPYRIGHT LAW DRAWS MIXED VIEWS FROM THE PUBLIC

Senior Minister of State for Law Indranee Rajah said in parliament the amended Act will give copyright owners more powers to protect their rights in cyberspace. One notable measure is to allow content owners obtain Court orders directly to block websites with infringing contents without the need to establish liability on network service providers. Previously, owners have to plead network service providers to remove access to copyright infringing material by issuing a take-down notice. Network providers need not abide to such notices.

SMU PROFESSOR: “VINCENT WIJEYSINGHA OWES THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AN APOLOGY”

Former opposition politician Vincent Wijeysingha has rejected the Catholic Church's offer to investigate an episode he had mentioned in a Facebook post. In fact, he says, he did not consider himself to have been abused by a priest when he was a teenager. Dr Wijeysingha, 44, first made public the "sorry incident" in a Facebook post on June 23. In it, he had referred to a priest "who would engage me in play wrestling and attempt to touch my crotch in the process". He also claimed that the priest took a stack of pornographic magazines from his wardrobe in his bedroom to show him. However, in his latest post on the issue on Saturday, Dr Wijeysingha, Singapore's first openly gay politician, said: "It was an attempt without any conclusion and therefore I consider myself neither to have been abused nor damaged subsequently." Referring to the incident as an alleged molestation attempt, the Church had suggested that Dr Wijeysingha either report to the police or to the Catholic Archdiocese Professional Standards Office
