Recently, City Harvest Church’s founder pastor kong and 4 other senior members have been charged in court for taking at least 23 million dollars of the church’s fund and using that large sum of money to fund the music career of Pastor Kong Hee’s wife Ho Yeow Sun. In a statement by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs Teo Chee Hean stated clearly that charges were not filed against the church.
It defintely would be political suicide if charges were to be made against the church, or worse still to revoke church license in operating a religious establishment, what with it attacking the faith of citizens in a secular nation. I remember quite awhile back when the charges were initially made then retracted that the church had denied the charges and insisted that they were clean. Members of the church must be really disappointed to find out that their donations have gone to funding Ho Yeow Sun’s music career.
