Subject: Email is evil. Evil indeed.
To: Undisclosed recipients and all readers of this blog, oh and to Thio Su Mien
Hope this would be a lesson to all. The next time you are intent on orchestrating a pinky-and-the-brain takeover of a local NGO, please be clever enough to hold secret meetings in your homes or in dark alleys behind your church building.
Mass email is a no no and praying for God’s guidance to steer the email to the chosen few is plain wishful thinking. Printing “PRIVATE & CONFIDENTIAL” on the top really doesn’t do anything as well.
I will reprint the emails in their entirety, or at least as I found them, for posterity sake. Afterall, if you cannot share private and confidential information, life would be too boring.
But first I shall highlight some choice quotes:
Thio Su Mien – “Unfortunately, I cannot surface but shall be assisting in the background. I attach the Aware membership application form for your use.”
Surface you did like the proverbial serpent from the ocean depths. And as the sun caught your face, your true form was revealed – feminist mentor arise!
Thio Su Mien –“The Aware application form has a section as to who ( if any) told you about Aware. You can just leave it blank”
So how did you become aware of aware? Ermmm …. blank
“Lynn” (to her what I believe to be her cell group) – “be a change agent for the Lord in some of the recent issues happen in this organization that is not according to the Lord’s principles………..”
I’m not sure if the Lord taught his disciples to conduct a coup d’etat. Let me double check the good book.
“Shawn” of Church of our Saviour mass email out to God knows how (pun utterly intended) – “we are calling on all responsible females to sign up for membership with AWARE immediately, and also to attend this all-important EGM so as to vote against changing the Constitution….. You are made for such a time as this!”
Yes, god created Eve for just such a purpose. Ladies, do you feel all warm inside?

PRIVATE & CONFIDENTIAL
Please see Attachments on some recent developments in Aware. Aware is a woman’s organization which conducts comprehensive sexual programmes for girls and it runs this programme in some of the schools. They encourage girls to express their full sexuality and this includes experimenting with other girls. It would be a good idea to join it and change its focus to other problems of women and families.
..Please ask your like-minded friends to join Aware so that you can give the vote to those who wish to be an agent of change for the Lord. They could also contribute to the activities of the oprganization as there is much to be done for women and families in this dowturn of the economy. Unfortunately, I cannot surface but shall be assisting in the background . I attach the Aware membership application form for your use. The Aware application form has a section as to who ( if any) told you about Aware. You can just leave it blank . Please let me know whether you can join and attend the AGM which will be towards the end of March 2009. The fee is $40/ and should be mailed to the Aware Office ( see application form).
Look forward to hearing from you. Please call me. May I have your phone no?

Acknowledged. We (Eugene and I) had quite a bit of talk on this issue over dinner today.
Right now we should pray for the COOS members who are being put through scrutiny and invasion of their private lives by the media. Pray that God’s Word will prevail over the values of the world. Homosexuality isn’t God’s design and we pray that those who stand up against it and are discriminated will be delivered.
Praise God for COOS’ stand and He who aids us as we stand firmly upon His Word.
Lotsa lessons to learn about how we Christians engage the world and secularism.

Thanks Tai Wei and Adora for taking an interest in the Aware Elections and how Church of Our Saviour has been embroiled in the controversy in the papers today. The media seems to have taken a strong stance against my church and this email is to update you all on the church’s position, which the senior pastor has kept mum about, but we would be expecting his comments in church tomorrow.
Below is an email sent out by a church staff to members of the church on the need for Christians to rise up and how they can be involved in this issue. Meanwhile, please pray for the church for it could be difficult time for members who are in the spotlight and the church could also be facing some brickbats along the way. Pray for God’s protection and wisdom to see us through.
DG, keeping you in the loop.

Subject: AWARE – Your Action Needed
Our nation needs your support and action very urgently!
AWARE is an organization that has existed in Singapore for many years.
It is a non-profit body dedicated to women’s advocacy and gender equality.
They protect women’s rights and help develop women to their fullest potential.
In the last few years, AWARE has aggressively become involved in gay
activism. Many members of their committee are pro-gay. They have even
conducted a sexual education programme in some schools that teach
young people that it is normal and alright to behave homosexually. They
have also screened a lesbian-themed movie Spider Lilies at a Charity Ball.
During this week, AWARE held an election of office bearers. This event saw
many of the pro-gay old guards losing their positions in the committee to new
faces. These new people do not share the values of the pro-gay old guards
and has caused much shock and rage to the latter group.
The pro-gay old guards are retaliating by calling for an Extraordinary General
Meeting where they intend to amend the Constitution to only allow members
who have been with AWARE for more than 2 years, to vote. If this change is
passed, then only the pro-gay old guards and their cohorts will have the
power to do what they want.
To prevent this from happening, we are calling on all responsible females
to sign up for membership with AWARE immediately, and also to attend this
all-important EGM so as to vote against changing the Constitution.
If you are male and have received this petition, please pass it to as many
responsible females as you know and encourage them to sign up for
membership with AWARE so as to vote against any changes to their
The date for the EGM has yet to be announced but it should be soon.
Membership fees are $40 for adult females and $5 for female fulltime students below
the age of 25. Please print the attached softcopy of the membership form,
fill in the details (no need to tell who referred you), mail the form with your cheque.
Singapore is counting on you. Please respond.
You are made for such a time as this!

Dear Pastor Derek,
The number of members registered on Tuesday night is 13 out of 40 who turned up.
One thing I forgot to mention this morning was the film show Spider Lilies (selected articles attached above)
The school children were told that lesbian lifestyle is okay.
