Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who assumed office in 2004, is warning that evangelization threatens the stability of his island nation. Citing aggressive preaching and criticizing the wave of revival, megachurches, and tele-evangelism he sees in the United States, the Buddhist prime minister-- and Catholic high school alumnus-- said that the most dangerous fault line is race and religion.
An estimated 4% of the nations 4.6 million inhabitants are Catholic; 43% are Buddhist, and 15% are Muslim.

The only faith that is being singled-out for persecution throughout the world, and even here in the US, is evangelical and/or fundamental Christianity.
Read the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ.
It’s all in there.
Has this man ever been to planet Earth before?
by the way, we Catholics consider “handing out bread and wine” to be the body and blood of Christ. no, I don’t think this man has ever seen a Christian before, nor been to a mass.
4% catholic and 15% muslim.
I wonder about what the 15% are like. In light of some news stories I heard I am not optimistic.
The Word of Almighty God most certainly threatens the stability of a non-Christian nation. When it is brought to unbelievers they are going to hear it and be eternally moved.
Perhaps he wouldn't mind so much if the preaching were half-hearted? He should move to America; we've got a lot of churches like that...
Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.
-- Matthew 10:34
That is the verse that came to mind when I read this article.
To be fair, is he thinking of Benny Hinn, Jimmy Swaggart, PTL and the rest of the Bible Thumper crowd? It’s one thing to preach the Gospel, quite another to rip people off in the NA-yum of JAY-EE-Zus.
Of course, true faith has the way to change the world, and may just unseat the Golden Calf.
