Buddhist Group’s President in Favour of Repealing 377A

09/30/2018 | The New Paper

The Buddhist Fellowship’s president said yesterday he supports repealing Section 377A of the Penal Code, which criminalizes sex between men. Separately, the group behind the latest attempt to repeal the law held its first town hall, where it urged the public to contact their MPs – the first time the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) movement has asked supporters to engage politicians on a large scale. In a statement posted on the Buddhist Fellowship’s Facebook page, its president Lim Phang Hong said Buddha’s teachings encourage Buddhists to develop understanding and care for all communities, regardless of their race, religion, language or sexual orientation.
