論這次7.1佔中之警民衝突

關於這次7.1佔中 單從清場行動而言,on live 睇左三個半鐘,對警方既專業同克制表現,我想講thank you. 值得我敬重同多謝各前線人員既勞苦. (again, 傷手傷腳係正常衝突會發生,所以我唔覺得所有人都吹水屈,但目測認會警方不是特登同已盡最大努力,我想已經值讚) 站在個人立場和信念,我仍然支持學生和平表達意見權利. 就算阻街幾日,在歐美罷工示威上十日plus是司空見慣… 詳閱

Meriam Ibrahim given refuge at US embassy in Sudan; says she will leave future to God

Her detention came just hours after being freed from prison following a judge’s decision to drop apostasy and adultery charges against her.

再論港式候派

一,引言 去年我撰寫了兩篇文章[1]回應鄧紹光以尤達/候活士觀點對佔中行動有所保留,當事人毫無學術討論誠意[2],令我本已打算不再淌這些渾水,然而,基於尤達/候活士觀點出發的言論,卻越來越流行,有用來談新聞自由、家庭價值、六四、腐敗政權等,彷如顯學,我便覺得有需要平衡一下,期望普羅信徒接觸尤達/候活士觀點時會有多些思考角度,不要盲目追捧時興… 詳閱

教會應以嚴肅會來回應香港

香港社會的背景就是八個字:暴政專橫,民不聊生。 在這樣的社會背景下,我認為基督信仰群體要突破以往的社會倫理框架,用認真(radical)的信仰回應暴政。以下的建議絕不暴力,而且有聖經根據。只要肯做,教會就能為香港做一件美事。 大家記不記得以色列人出埃及是為了甚麼?是為了能去到山上敬拜神。集會,對舊約信仰群體來說十分重要,他們會以集會來表達信仰… 詳閱
