S'pore a model to world on how religion is handled
I REFER to the report, 'Branding Singapore: From mind to heart and spirit' (March 26).
I am inspired to know that Singapore has decided this and it leads me to say that religion is an area where Singapore can be a model to the world.
Singapore is unique in its administration of religion in that knowledge and learning are a priority. I do not know of any other jurisdiction where the emphasis is on gaining knowledge and scholarship.
The report said that in the new branding of Singapore, the Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts' national marketing team is showcasing new traits such as creativity, confidence and 'a dare to dream attitude'.
I am daring to dream.

Yup, but do beware: 2 Timothy 4:3-4 (NIV)
3For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.
