其中當然是曾經失落立法會議席後來投向基督教後再次入局的黃成智。此君曾經在所謂人權教育裡面扭曲人權的定義﹐把人權和責任掛鉤﹐給學員批評﹐在明珠台 Pearl Report 都有報導。
這次當然他是為了投部份選民所好 (歧視) 而採取此立場。
Dear Mr. Wong,
I wrote to voice my deep concern of amendment of laws on domestic violence to include homosexual couples. You and a number of your colleagues in the Democratic Party cited your religious conviction in your opposition.
I have respect towards people choice of their religion or spirituality, but in terms of public matters, it is not a personal religious conviction that dictates.
You fear the law may pave the way of legalizing same-sex marriage.
I am very disappointed if you should vote against the amendment.
Domestic violence is about being perpetrated and traumatized by an intimate and significant other with which one shares their life, not just sharing the same flat. The trauma from it is very deep and can take years to heal.
It is why it is so important to include as many victims as possible under the protection of the law.
We are not living in the Middle Age or at a society of Feudalism, where immutable human rights are dispensed base on moral judgements or labelling -- human rights and a person's morality or responsibility has to be treated separately, so to avoid the law being turned into a tool of oppression (of people holding different values).
I know Christian groups (convservative ones) are adament about this amendment -- but let me ask, do they need means to oppress or to "legally" discriminate others in order to "witness Christ" (so to speak) ? Their opposition is their sign of weakness and fear rather a sign of the strength of their faith.
Your faith preaches love and compassion, but all I see in those oppositions are plain bigotry.
My friend has a very keen observation about Christians -- for professing Christians, once they come to believe that their set of values are superior, that their God is the only true god, and the others are inferior, false or devils, there is NO limit for them to show discrimination towards another who has another religiion different from them. Another says: religion makes good person do evil.
I wrote in a bid to convince you that you Christians don't need a law that permits domestic violence for homosexual couples or a law that is lenient towards violent perpetrators in a homosexual relationship, in order for you to uphold Christian values.
If the conservative Christians has their ways, then Hong Kong Christians will become just like their USA counterparts - bigots like George W. Bush.
