Daily Lessons from Life 24 May 2017 - CHC Aftermath...

Manchester Suicide Bomber - 22 dead n 60+ injured with 20 in critical conditions. The bomber most likely is just a dumb guy who carried someone else bomb!! May the security folks find the minders n manipulators soon as the terrorist alert has been set at the highest level of "critical" i.e. an imminent attack may happen anytime!

"SINGAPORE: The six convicted City Harvest Church leaders, including founder Kong Hee, are permanently barred from having general control and management of any charity, the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY) said in a media statement on Wednesday (May 24).

Kong as well as John Lam, Tan Ye Peng, Sharon Tan, Serina Wee and Chew Eng Han were convicted of misappropriating S$50 million from the megachurch’s coffers. All of them are serving their sentences, except for Chew, who was granted a stay until the Court of Appeal decides questions of law brought by the prosecution.

"It is a pertinent consideration that the offences (they) were convicted of, namely criminal breach of trust and/or falsification of accounts, involve dishonesty and/or deception," MCCY said in Wednesday's statement.

The permanent disqualification means that the six leaders can no longer hold any governance or management positions in a charity, it said."

A religion abused in a less deadly fashion this long drawn CHC trial. It involved S$50m of roundtripping of the church building fund. Nobody died. The convicted leaders still hv more than 10k+ followers, down by 2/3, willing n faithfully believing they did not deserve this trial n punishment!! In fact, if Sgp does not has a ZERO TOLERANCE for mixing religion n laws n politics, this saga could hv been spanned as "religious persecution"!!

Thankfully no one date go there as everyone knows that the government will come down very hard n decisive on whoever try to stir up religion n laws n politics!

In Indonesia, 2 blasts happened in public transport terminal in South Jakarta. Hopefully it is unrelated to anyone committing terrorist acts in the name of religion. When Indonesia falls to religious intolerance n extremism, it cannot be good for Sgp, its nearest neighbour!! Hope things r under control given the unexpectedly severe sentence for x-governor Ahok after his blasphemy charges!!
