Abstract: The recent debate about repealing Section 377A that criminalises sex between men assumes a high signature because it may lead to a social change in Singapore. It can potentially bring a largely conservative Singaporean society to a tipping point where many of its traditional pro-family norms may be undermined, even replaced with secular-liberal norms, leading to a decline in religion. This is not a conjecture. Some countries in the West have crossed such a tipping point.
