Headline: ASIA / SINGAPORE – De-penalize homosexual acts: for the Church it is urgent to protect the traditional family
Singapore – “The Church considers everyone, regardless of sexual orientation, with the same respect: everyone in the community is important, regardless of whether they are attracting people of the same sex. We feel the struggles and sufferings of those who, feeling attracted to people of the same sex, sincerely love God and desire to live according to his divine plan for humanity. They are next to them when they are ostracized or marginalized by society: they too deserve to be loved and treated with dignity and respect “. This was written by the Archbishop of Singapore, William Goh, in a Pastoral Letter, received by Fides, which addresses the issue of homosexual relations and current legislation, while a debate is under way on the possible repeal of Article 377 paragraph a) of the Penal Code, which provides for penal sanctions for the homosexual relationship between adults.
