The leaders of the National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS) have reiterated in a letter to its members that it "does not condone homosexual practice and ... considers the homosexual lifestyle as sinful and unacceptable". The letter, which was seen by The Straits Times, was issued on Friday (Dec 22) in response to some members who have asked if there had been a change in the NCCS' position on homosexuality. This follows an article published in The Sunday Times on Dec 17, which reported that there is now a growing acceptance among Christians of the idea that homosexuality itself is not wrong, even though a majority of them continue to believe that homosexual acts are a sin. The NCCS had declined to comment for the article.
