Is it a cause for celebration? Not really.
The inconsistency in the law is not something we can be proud of. And I am saying this even though I do not agree with the homosexuality arguments.
But Minister Shanmugam's position is a pragmatic one. And for that I respect him, and the government he represents, that they can be mature enough in his/their thinking not to be too fixated on a course of action that is inflexibly bound with ideological correctness. He is right in stating the obvious, that ..."We, sometimes in these things, have to accept a bit of messiness."
Yep. Applies to both sides of the argument.
