In analysing or making judjments, it’s good to see the perspective of those going against the flow of conventional wisdom..
Below is a purported piece from a member of the CHC conregation. Do read it.
I agree that “Only the CHC family is hurt in the CHC Saga”. Going by the comments on social media and the internet, the so-called hurt many S’poreans feel is nothing more than envy that Sun Ho got others to fund her Holywood lifestyle, and envy that her bubbie is a good entrepreneur with a business model that is hard to replicate.
Yes there is reason to be concerned ( I hope to explore it soon) but most of the comments don’t reflect this concern.
I agree with the following except I would exclude Sun Ho’s husband
If anyone has suffered loss, it would be the 6 of them who have suffered financially, in their reputation, in their careers and even up to this point, when their families are dealing the pain of separation in 2 weeks’ time, fellow Singaporeans are hoping to prolong this pain of separation.
Kong Hee benefited because he didn’t have to fund Sun Ho’s Hollywood dreams and ambitions and lifestyle.
I dispute “this whole project was internally agreed upon and funds was internally and voluntarily raised.”
This assrtion is very misleading. There was no full and proper dislosure of what was happening for a long time. Matters were hidden from the auditors and church members. It was the failure to disclose what was happening was the reason why why the six were found guilty of CBT.
If they had disclosed what they were up to, there would have been no CBT. But the leaders didn’t trust their church members. They should have with hindsight. God’s a prankster like Loki?
Finally, if you want to know why I come down so hard on the anti-PAP cybernuts go to TR Emeritus and read the reaction from the cybernuts to Pauline Kong’s letter.
With people like them, the majority of swing voters will always prefer the PAP.
