Mene mene tekel upharsin

In a nutshell: The MOE called a press conference yesterday where the minister of education announced that after a careful study into complaints about Aware’s CSE programme, the ministry have found these complaints to be justified and therefore they are stopping the Aware’s programme and they are going to tighten the process to vet and approve external agencies allowed to provide sexuality education in schools. (In other words, to be more vigilant against such sneaky attacks in the future)

To the AWARE:

Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting

About the Aware’s CSE programme, it’s president Dana Lam had said; “We stand by our CSE programme.”

Well; this is in fact minister Ng Eng Hen’s reply: You have been very naughty. You have betrayed our trust. We do not trust you anymore. Go stand in the corner!

To Josie and friends from the Church of Our Saviour

Thanks for bringing this problem to the public’s attention. But you should have done it in a more intelligent (Matthew 10:6) and God-honouring way.

Our Lord says:

“But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.” (Matthew 5:37).

Your sneaky methods in taking over Aware – and denying your intentions until you were exposed – were in violation of God’s commandments.

“…. by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the Lord to blaspheme”. (2 Samuel 12:14)
