Top class reasoning, uncompromising
intellectual honesty. I don't believe I have seen the same quality of judgements in our courts.

Sad to say, when we do have gay
marriage in Singapore, it will
not be the government doing something for the welfare or
happiness of some of its citizens.
More likely to avoid the legal
no man's land that foreign married
gay couples will face if they
want to work here. Especially if
they are CEO's or biotech researchers that the government wants.

Insulting. But not unprecedented.
