要求中央信守「一國兩制、高度自治」承諾

面對當前香港特區政府管治困局與施政失效,我們一群基督徒,就此現況表達關注,特別是近期國務院發表《一國兩制在香港特別行政區的實踐》白皮書,引發我們的憂慮、無奈與困惑。 我們肯定,《中英聯合聲明》(1984年12月19日) 明確說明:「香港特別行政區直轄於中華人民共和國中央人民政府。除外交和國防事務屬中央人民政府管理外,香港特別行政區享有高度的自治權… 詳閱

給家人的信:為何6.22必須投票

根據上次五區公投嘅經驗,中共對投票率的解讀是這樣的: 上次有58萬人投票(香港有3百多萬已登記選民,則該次投票率為17.1%),較通常選舉投票率低(因為沒有平時灌票的建制派參與,加上政府和《蘋果》以外的傳媒冷對待該次選舉)。即使「泛民」加上學界出隊的「大專2012」在這次變相公投中得到有效票中的九成(準確點是89.43%),建制派還是以之為藉口,說香港人根… 詳閱

At the grassroots, schism is unpopular. A June poll, commissioned by a UMC agency, indicates that rank and file UMC members are opposed to a church schism over homosexuality. “We found that regardless of a person’s position on homosexuality, members felt strongly that the church could offer a positive an… 詳閱

文化「戰爭」?……比喻的重要性

Cultural “War”??? … Metaphors Matter In the best tradition of the Apostle Paul, Ephesians 6.11-12 says, “Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, agains… 詳閱

宗教自由的勝利會是宗教的失敗

Most embarrassing of all is the specter of people asking in the name of religion for permission to discriminate. This flies in the face of what every world religion claims in their own version of the Golden Rule: “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Suc… 詳閱

美歷史學者指宗教右派的興起源自維護種族歧視而非反墮胎

But the abortion myth quickly collapses under historical scrutiny. In fact, it wasn’t until 1979—a full six years after Roe—that evangelical leaders, at the behest of conservative activist Paul Weyrich, seized on abortion not for moral reasons, but as a rallying-cry to deny President Jimmy Carter a second term. Why… 詳閱

情理兼備應對爭論

活在資訊網絡年代,強調平等與開放,就社會與教會大小課題,人人可有不同意見,各自表述。筆者憂心是近年來,隨著「臉書」(Facebook) 與 WhatsApp (或相關智能手機使用的即時消息軟體) 流行,一些失實或偏頗的短訊「瘋傳」,特別在信徒與教牧之間,有時在未驗證資訊真偽下,經已廣傳,甚至以訛傳訛,只會對有關的課題與團體造成不必要的傷害。 倘若基督徒宣稱是真理的… 詳閱
