The annual National Prayer Breakfast in Taiwan will be canceled this year, the first time in 20 years, following controversy over a recent social media post by President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) supporting the LGBT community. In a statement issued Thursday evening, the event’s preparatory committee said in order to prevent further disputes and misunderstandings between members, the annual prayer meeting will not be held this Friday. The National Breakfast Prayer in Taiwan, which has been held since 2001, is jointly organized by different Christian church denominations and organizations in the country. Themed “Love without borders,” this year’s breakfast prayer was supposed to take place at the Miracle Top Church’s Mehas Complex Hall in Xindian District, New Taipei.
