Notable quotes by Teo Chee Hian

'Religion is a force for good, and it's important that it does not become exclusive and that it reaches out to other groups and communities to build strong social cohesion.' Teo Chee Hian I also say the same truth everyday. So do many believers, that religion is good. This is the conventional truth, a populist belief that ignores the empirical and historical evidences of how evil and destructive religion was, is and can be. Anyone who thinks that religion is all goodness, please read the content of the scriptures and at historical records on what religion actually did to the non believers and also to their believers. Heard of the Inquisition and the role of religion in the conquest of the world of savages? The truth is ugly and it is better not to tell the truth.

The truth is millions have died in the name of religion, and yet there is this proclamation that I am holier than thou.

Better stay away from the brutal truth. You will feel better.

Teo is selling the PAP as a religion and RedBean actually fail to see that. Did RedBean see that the PAP is aggressively reaching out to many groups and communities etc foreigner community with $10 millions carrot, REACH site, SingaNews, business group with JCS.... even more so with "rebellious" Art group that refuse to sell PAP propaganda.

well, for pap to be a religion it must fulfil several conditions. it must have a god, a creation story, the beginning of life. it must have its commandments, its prophets. oh, god must have a son to save the world. and it must have its churches and believers.

and a bible.
