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

Posted on 23 February 2016

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.
