Singapore: Prime Minister Says “We’ll Just Leave” Anti Gay Law in Place

Written by scott on January 29th, 2013

Gay Star News reports that Singapore’s not likely to remove its anti-gay laws any time soon:

A delegate at the Institute of Policy Studies’ Singapore Perspectives conference yesterday asked why a secular country like Singapore has ‘an old and archaic law that nearly discriminates against a whole [group] of people’. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong responded that in countries that do not criminalize homosexuality ‘the struggles don’t end’, Singapore’s Today newspaper reports. ‘Why is that law on the books?’ Lee said. ‘Because it’s always been there and I think we just leave it.’

So if you give those pesky gays an inch, they’ll take a mile, right?
