Prominent CPF activist and blogger Roy Ngerng has left Singapore to work in Taiwan, says socio-political commentator and president of MARUAH Leong Sze Hian.

VIGIL AT HONG LIM PARK TO BACK PROTESTERS

Their candlelight vigil started at 7.30pm, with the crowd spontaneously singing Under A Vast Sky, a Cantonese song by Hong Kong rock band Beyond that has become the protest's unofficial anthem. Event organisers Jolovan Wham, 34, and Rachel Zeng, 31, said they wanted to stand in solidarity with the Hong Kong people who have taken to the streets to push for universal suffrage.

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:

FILE A REPORT!

To say this was a bad decision is an understatement. This is a very serious allegation, and since he was the one who brought it up, Mr. Wijeysingha must file a police report. Failing to do so would destroy not just his reputation but that of the Pink Dot movement as well. Like it or not, they are joined together now on this issue. So Mr. Wijeysingha must file a police report; if not for himself, then so it for the Pink Dot movement.

THE ELOQUENT BOY WHO BROKE OUR HEARTS

As a Singaporean who voted for SDP during GE2011, I am now regretting my decision to support them in Holland-Bukit Timah GRC. I thought I was voting for a credible and competent voice in Dr. Vincent Wijeysingha but I have been sorely disappointed. During the elections, Dr. Vincent came acrossed as a learned, measured and capable man, a man who could connect with Singaporeans, a man whom we could trust. But events surrounding Dr. Vincent after his SDP departure made me lose my respect for the man I once believe in.

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

BATTLE FOR THE MIDDLE GROUND

"My own sense is that while a majority of Singaporeans may disapprove of gay practices, they take the stand that people should have the freedom to choose how they want to live their lives, as long as they do not impose their values and preferences on others," says sociologist Tan Ern Ser. "This reflects post-materialist values supportive of self-expression." Institute of Policy Studies senior research fellow Mathew Mathews thinks there will be more "activistic" campaigning to come. "Over the years, as the world changes, more values will be different. You can expect quite a lot of alternative ways of doing things, and more debates in return," he says. "I don't expect there to be any less."

Catholics demand proof from Vincent Wijeysingha that a priest had tried to molest him

Catholics from some walks of life have expressed doubt over Vincent Wijeysingha’s claims that he was molested by a priest when he was a teenager. This after Vincent made a bombshell revelation a few days ago saying he was still play wrestling with a priest when he was 15. A Catholic, Yeshu Aini, said: “I find Vincent Wijeysingha’s claims about almost being molested dubious because there is no evidence. Where is the proof? We can’t just rely on his word, right?”

VINCENT WIJEYSINGHA IS A LIAR

Whatever reservations or sympathy I had on him being a victim of the hideous crime of molest was quickly evaporated when I read the note. I can only describe it as a vile, contemptuous diatribe filled with so much bile, half-truths, unsubstantiated allegations and vicious self opinion designed to damage the Catholic Church here, and to cast improper and unwarranted aspersions against the Church and the Catholic faith as a whole.

GAY CATHOLIC: I AM ACCEPTED BY MY CHURCH

To all the bigots who used the bible as an instruction booklet for hating and discriminating us, shame on you. Your actions are akin to forging your parents signature to get what you want but can't. Stop yourselves from the greatest sin of all, stop hating god's creation and telling his children what is wrong or right; God is the judge, we have no rights.
