Calyn (2) for 1/4/15

Issue being discussed: A teenager posted a video online that insulted Christianity and attacked Mr Lee Kuan Yew on a video on YouTube.
General observations about issue discussed: On Sunday, Amos was arrested for a video he posted last Friday that allegedly celebrated the death of Singapore's founding Prime Minister. The eight-minute-long video included remarks about Christianity that some people found insensitive.
How the writer approaches this issue: I feel that Amos Yee's actions are rude and unforgivable. He has offended Mr Lee Kwan Yew, who has built Singapore, sacrificing his life and making singapore such a successful country which is lawful. I have watched Amos Yee's video and he expressed his feelings about Mr Lee in an absolutely unforgivable manner.
Relating to singapore context: He will probably be given a warning and hopefully learn his lesson not to ridicule an important figure who sacrificed his life for us.

  1. I agree with you. He has indeed offended the Christianity and our founding father, Mr Lee Kuan yew. Mr Lee sacrificed most of his life to develop Singapore into a better place for Singaporeans. He is a great man and a leader. Without him, there will not be Singapore we know today. I think Amos should not criticize Mr lee with all those rude languages as well as Christianity. We should respect all religions and not make fun of them . I hope Amos has learnt a huge lesson regarding his mistakes and reflect on them.
