sharing this Facebook reply to a friend about the City Harvest Church Case which is still under the probe:

‘If this case is left unchanged, what spells for us in Singapore would definitely be not just a tarnish in the law system and national reputation ; but also the risk of  having more evil leaders who make use of religion or any other means as a mask to cover up huge greed cases such as this one.

The other concern would be the brainwash of people’s mind into attaining this kind of crime.
Very ingenious as it is sinister.
There are probably more that we do not know.

Apart from these, the judiary is highly probable for having this kind of matter go pass this loose.

As common logic and ethics would have it, these people are criminals of the most sinister kind.

How the law diminish could their evil is totally frightening. ‘ – @Karen_Fu

City Harvest Church Case-where Ethics, Law and Common sense collide. April 10, 2017

Where common sense is defeated, it marks a serious tone to the way the law was set. And why it has become so. The final outcome of the case could set a precedent to future criminals to follow, and a questionable judiary system for many to be wary of. All critical to our nation’s reputation since independence, when the slightest of fraud could mean a heavy punishment.
When the sentence could lengthen instead of the set sentence, it was scarily being markedly reduced by either half or more.

Were the 6 involved  genuinely repentant to have their sentence cut that much remains questionable. If fraud could become an innocent mistake under the use of religion to launder money, then what is to become of the religious groups in the future, should people attempt to make use of it to make money for themselves?
It was a relief that MP Shanmugham SC stated the case is not over yet as the government also thinks the sentence was too low. He reiterated that no one is above the law.
However should the outcome be negative, and the reduced sentence prevails; it would be a total nightmare for us Singaporeans. The nightmare which Law would no longer be just. And a twist in the lines of the law could actually defy commonsense. That would be a watershed downfall of a clean slate nation. More later after a long hibernation to recover from chronic eczema – @Karen_Fu

What is expected by most people who hoped for a Clinton victory, flipped.

When Bernie was asked out, we should know way better that Trump might win. A tip over the scales in many parts of the States flipped the blue out with the red in. It showed the true state of situations in the States and how much was trusted after Sanders was asked to concede during the nomination.The problems are so dire with commoners, mainly the underprivileged, that the ruling party was shown out. And that should not have been overlooked.
The issue is when you take off the kind, you should know that things will no longer be the same.
Lesson learnt: do not  take advantage over the well meaning folks who are neither power mongering nor greedy. Cos when you do, the power of the votes will show you in.

People’s problems must be addressed, social issues must be sensitively handled with action. These are the fundamentals of any election victory. It is also a fact that when commoners are not in a good state of affairs will want a change of governance. It has always been the rule.
Welcome to the new world power and probably a radical change. Coming January, Trump is now going to be the most powerful person with the money and political influence combined.These are the main essence to get things done without just the talk on paper, but real action; especially in the hands of someone who  doesn’t actually need to bend to any ordinary human being or power.
As we read on after the historic election, we should know better too who are the genuine folks for the people. There is always a reason why things happen. So let this be a good lesson. It might not be as bad as we think. Stocks first fell but later stabilized showed this stability for now. 欺善怕恶的世界可能从此得到启示。Perhaps the world that is usually cowering down before the powerful and mighty will heed the lessons better. Not a bad day if it is so.  @Karen_Fu
