NUS Campus Crusade for Christ suspended while under police investigations

Posted by temasektimes on July 11, 2012

Controversial NUS student group the Campus Crusade for Christ has been suspended following investigations over posters that were deemed “insensitive and disrespectful”.

The posters, which were distributed on the campus to promote a mission trip to Thailand, described the country as ‘a place of little true job’ because few Thais believe in Jesus Christ and only “about one hundred Thais accept Christ each year’:

A similar gaffe was made on its NUS website where it promoted a mission trip to Turkey, saying that the country needed ‘much prayer and work’ because ‘much of the population is M’, referring to Muslims.

In a written reply to Parliament, Education Minister Heng Swee Keat said police investigations into the NUS Campus Crusade for Christ are ongoing.

“This incident reminds all of us not to take racial and religious harmony for granted, and that we must be sensitive and vigilant on matters of race and religion,” he said.

No arrests have been made so far.

    Unless they are nipped in the bud before their strident confrontational fundamentalism against other faiths result in conflicts, they will grow stronger, bolder and more powerful like the mega churches. Eventually cults will spread and they will have significant political influence to pose a threat to the one party state in due time.

    Christians again?! Ha ha! What a shame! Both Christians and Muslim are NOT religion of peace and harmony! Many historical events proved it! Till today, wars are still going on in the name of god! Does god wanted war? Maybe!?

    I think such things, albeit less blatant, happens everyday. Some people think they are superior to others.

    A durian tree will have some good some bad durian. In a society, religion, it will be the same. Embrace the bad, learn to be good.

    Jesus should come down to earth to knock some sense to his insensitive & corrupted followers cos many of them done a lot of stupid things. Most importantly, teach them what are the right teachings.

    I hope stern action including court prosecutions be taken. It is a shame that some Christian zealots think the rest of world are condemned unless they accept Jesus Christ. I am Catholic and the Church does not preach in that way. And there must be respect for other faiths.

    Not only does these zeolots condemn the non-believers, they also condemn other Churches. It does get out of hand but when spoken within their own services or so-called Christian revivals, no action is ever taken. But these people are plain wrong in their practice of the Christian faith.
