PETITION TO REPLACE ADAM LAMBERT WITH SUN HO FOR COUNTDOWN 2016 CONCERT

Following the outrage by some conservative religious people who felt that it was inappropriate for Adam Lambert to headline the 2016 concert organised by Mediacorp at The Float at Marina Bay, some Singaporeans have started another petition for Sun Ho to replace Adam Lambert at the concert. These people believe that Sun Ho is in a better position to represent a "dignified family event" that is not "offensive and potentially divisive" because she embodies values such as family, money, booty-shaking, money, some criminal case, money, God, money, church, and, of course, money. And most importantly, there is no "gay agenda" to turn people and children who watch the performance, gay.

12 THINGS SUN HO SAID IN HER INTERVIEW WITH CITY HARVEST CHURCH

“I think our church will never change: it’s still gonna be loving God whole-heartedly and loving people fervently. I really pray that this statement will continue to be our rudder, to guide CHC in our next 25 years. I’m believing that we will continue to be the salt and light, and that God will, after this episode, give us the privilege to bring another wave of revival to Singapore, and not just that, but to the world, and to let us continue to reach out to souls.”

WHY I LEFT CITY HARVEST CHURCH

“Give and you shall be given back ten fold, a hundred fold, a thousand fold,” he would quote from the bible. My tithes and offerings had to be going somewhere, and if it was used to finance Ho’s music career, I was none the wiser. Not that it mattered. To me, and to many believers I knew, we were giving unto God. If the person who managed the finances was corrupt, it didn’t matter. What mattered was what I know to be good and true.

FORMER KONG HEE SUPPORTER SPEAKS OUT

I was an Executive Member in CHC, and I did vote with my mind and heart to give the Board the mandate to invest the money into bonds for higher returns so that we can be good stewards of money, as Pastor Kong explained. So it invested in bonds of Xtron (XPL, supposedly a leading AVL company) which were supposed to earn interest at an acceptable risk… but apparently now we found out in court that it went around the world via CHCKL to pay for parts of the Crossover expenses and Xtron is technically not in profit.

CITY HARVEST CHURCH AUDITOR FOUND SOME CHURCH TRANSACTIONS UNUSUAL

SINGAPORE'S HOTTEST MUMMY SERINA WEE SETS UP BLOG SHOP

City Harvest Church's former finance manager Serina Wee, who has been causing a stir with her good looks and stylish outfits, has set up a blogshop selling apparel and accessories. She turned up at the Subordinate Courts in one of her shop's dresses earlier on Monday (Jan 13). Netizens took notice of the white and blue V-neck piece, although a handful remarked how it resembled the uniform of a beer promoter.
