Traditional family unit is what will build the nation

I PRAY hard that Singapore will not legalise same-sex marriage, not even when our society is ready ("Society here 'not ready for same-sex marriage'"; June 6, and "Same-sex marriage legalised across US"; last Saturday).

Our Government has repeatedly emphasised the building of robust families. Same-sex marriage cannot build our nation. The adopted children of such couples can never experience a wholesome family structure. Adopted children in same-sex marriages will be disoriented and confused.

The Government must continue to stand on moral leadership and preserve the basic building block and foundation of society in the form of a traditional family.
