The pastor of a Singapore megachurch is warning his followers that a repeal of the country’s colonial-era law banning homosexual sex would threaten religious freedom and the basic family unit. Pastor Lawrence Khong of the Faith Community Baptist Church used former Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong’s January 13 visit as a platform to spread his message of intolerance: Khong warned his flock that LGBT activists working to repeal Section 377A of the Singapore Penal Code were a “looming threat” to the basic building blocks of society.
