This is so as Chingay has gone on since 1973.

Highly religious Singaporeans from that particular walk of life that like to meddle in other people’s business, are vowing to change the name of the festival Chingay to Chin-Straight.

This after they said their sensibilities have been repeatedly offended over the years as the “gay” word is not wholesome and does not gel with family values.

Lei Hoh Moh, a highly religious person, said this is the right time to petition for the name change as Chingay has gone on long enough since 1973: “I feel violated every time I have to say the word ‘Chingay’. ‘Chin-Straight’ feels more pure.”

“We are also sending a positive message the gay agenda is no more.”

However, not all Singaporeans are convinced a mere name change is enough.

Seow Lang, another highly religious Singaporean, said: “We must not have pink or too many bright colours in the festival as this will attract homosexuality.”

“Also, we must not have too many loud songs and cheering as this does not bode well for conservative family values.”

Singapore is a society that values equality.

They are upset original name will cause Singaporeans to deviate.

Staunch Christians in Singapore will be petitioning the authorities to change the name of “Chingay” to “Chingstraight”, in time for next year’s parade.

It is not known if this group of petitioners are all from FCBC, which is led by anti-gay activist, Pastor Lawrence Khong.

Chingay has been Singapore’s annual Chinese New Year procession and it is set to take place on Feb.7 and 8 next year at the F1 Pit Building.

Lei Hoh Moh, a staunch anti-gay advocate, said this is the right time to petition for the name change as next year’s event is slated to be the biggest ever since it started in 1973: “With a bigger audience watching, we are sending a positive message the gay agenda is no more.”

“And I feel violated every time I have to say the word ‘Chingay’. ‘Chingstraight’ feels more pure.”

The same group had previously petitioned authorities to ban people from saying “Hello” when they picked up the phone.

They wanted people to say “Heaven-o” instead, but to no avail.
