Statement from the Humanist Society (Singapore)

The Humanist Society (Singapore) has noted the unhappiness over Campus Crusade for Christ posters at the National University of Singapore. In the spirit of religious and racial harmony, we urge Singaporeans to resolve this unhappiness through discussions instead of calling for legal measures.

Only dialogue will improve understanding between different communities and lead to genuine harmony within Singapore’s society in the long run. The Humanist Society (Singapore) supports frank, rational discussions between different religious communities as well as non-religious communities. Discussions should be based on clear knowledge of various religious practices, sound logic and respect for each other’s right to belief. As a community of non-religious Singaporeans, the Humanist Society (Singapore) is ready to play our part in forging harmonious relations in the country.
