S’pore govt takes up magician’s challenge to ‘draw clear line’ on LGBT issue

Posted on 29 June 2014

Government ups the ante by drawing two clear lines to show they mean business.


The Singapore government has responded affirmatively to a challenge issued by Lawrence Khong, a Singaporean leather-clad magician who is not as good as David Blaine.

Khong threw down the gauntlet this past weekend and had issued a challenge to the Singapore government, demanding that they draw a “clear line” on the LGBT issue, acting as if he is the only person in Singapore who pays his taxes on time.

A government spokesperson, Jiang Fei Hua, responded to this challenge and said in a statement issued to the media: “We do not take any sort of threats lightly, be it from over-privileged clowns, terrorist organisations or a magician.”

“To make it very clear to him, in case he cannot see properly through all that smoke and mirrors, the Singapore government has taken a firm stance and will draw not only a line on the LGBT issue.”

“We will, in fact, draw two lines, one in red and one in green, in case he claims he is colourblind.”


In support of the magician:
Respect to Pastor Lawrence Khong for casting adulteress aside

No, no, we are conservative Singaporeans please, no singing but magic is okay:
