Debate: Are Singaporeans Better Off Without Religion?

On 30 July 2009, the Singapore Humanism Meetup (SHM) organised a debate over these questions:

  1. What is the role of religion in Singaporean society?
  2. Are there any advantages to having a religious affiliation?
  3. What benefits does freethought confer on the average Singaporean?
