Or else they will be corrupted.

Madonna’s concert should receive more than a R18 rating from the Media Development Authority (MDA). Her performances, sets and song lyrics are offensive to Christianity, Christians and their practices.

Singapore works hard to protect religious harmony, but the Government could do more. MDA gave the concert an R18 rating for “sexually suggestive content which is more suitable for adults”.

Is that sufficient? She is performing at the National Stadium, which has open architecture, so non-ticket holders including underaged persons can listen to the performance just standing outside the stadium.

Madonna SG concert: S’poreans express grave concerns about abuse of children by Catholic priests

Madonna SG concert: S’poreans express grave concerns about abuse of children by Catholic priests

Singaporeans must not support those who are immoral, they said.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like riding around on their high horses, have come out to express their grave concerns about the abuse of children by Catholic priests throughout history.

This after the Catholic Archbishop William Goh expressed the Catholic Church’s grave concerns about American singer Madonna’s “Rebel Heart” concert in Singapore on Sunday, Feb. 28, 2016.

Goh reminded Catholics that it was their “moral obligation not to support those who denigrate and insult religions, including anti-Christian and immoral values promoted by the secular world”.

Singaporeans who heard this, said they agree that there is indeed a moral obligation not to support those who denigrate and insult religions and carried out anti-Christian and immoral values, such as Catholic priests who have historically abused children under their charge.

One Singaporean, Nina Kan, said: “I would really like to see the Catholic Church in Singapore come out more strongly against abusive priests, since a lot of what they have done is a lot worse than what Madonna is doing.”

“If Madonna deserves a rebuke, so do the Catholic priests who have or are still molesting and abusing children under their charge.”

“Whose moral high horse is higher now?”

At press time, Nina Kan’s moral high horse is almost as high as the sky.

Send Majulahs Madonna's way.

Jay Chou needs more grass at S’pore Sports Hub to be able to perform

No grass, no songs.

Jay Chou looks like he is trying to smell the grass.

Jay Chou looks like he is trying to smell the grass.

It’s official: More grass is needed in the Singapore Sports Hub pitch to entice Jay Chou to perform there.

Taiwan superstar Jay Chou released a statement on Oct. 17, 2014 saying that a vital ingredient for his concert, which was initially scheduled for Nov. 8, is grass and that the current pitch is just not on par with his usual standards.

As such the concert will be postponed to Dec. 27.

A spokesman for Jay Chou, Xu Yao Chao said: “It’s unacceptable to have more sand than grass at the venue. If my boss wants to hold a concert at the beach, we will jolly well book at Sentosa or East Coast Park. We want to smell the grass. Besides, my boss’ favourite colour is green.”

New Nation spoke to a couple of Jay Chou fans for their comments, who agreed grass is what drives their idol’s creativity.

Long Juan Feng, a long-time Jay Chou fan, said: “Any self-respecting singer needs grass to perform. It’s already reported in some scientific journals. This is totally not my Jay’s fault. It’s Singapore Sports Hub’s fault. I hate you!”

Another fan, Shuang Jie Kun said: “Jay is a perfectionist. I understand his concern. However, I cannot believe Singapore has no grass. Cannot buy from Malaysia?”
