新加坡天主教大主教的一封公开信(转贴)

本人非天主教徒,尝试从个人角度来看具有宗教代表性人物如何超越政治,公平对待竞争者,促进世界的进步不是基于个人私有交情,支持你,但不一定要投选你!

     英文全文如下,附中文简译:
SINGAPORE - The head of the Catholic Church in Singapore has urged his flock here to take an "active role in the political process" and vote for the common good. Archbishop Nicholas Chia said that they must not forget the poor, elderly and the marginalised in society.

In a letter published in the May 8 edition of the Catholic News, the Archbishop wrote: "As we approach the 2011 General Election, I wanted to share with you my thoughts on the relationship between Church and State and highlight to you the importance of taking an active role in the political process.

"When considering the issues and the candidate that will represent us in the upcoming election, we as Catholics must reflect on our duty to use our free vote to further the common good, while remaining true to the Christian values Jesus has taught us.

"Human rights and the dignity of the human person must be respected.

"We must also ensure that the poor, the elderly and the marginalised in our society are cared for."

He also called on Catholics here to care for the environment.

"We must protect the beautiful world that God has given us by addressing the impact that our actions have on the environment," he said. "The right to vote is one of the founding principles of a democracy. Each one of us has a voice and can make a difference in the world we live through our choices and the election process.

"Each vote is significant."

“在即将参与的选举中,作为天主教徒的我们,思考有关议题和候选代表人时,必须反映我们是负责任的凭自由意志的投票,促进共同利益,实践忠于耶稣教导我们的基督教价值观。

“人权和人的尊严必须得到尊重。

“我们还必须确保社会中被边缘化的穷人和老人,得到我们的照顾。”

他还呼吁天主教徒关心环保。

“我们必须保护这个上帝给予的美丽世界,通过我们的行动回馈环境。”他说。 “选举权是民主的基本原则之一。我们每个人都拥有发言权,通过我们的选择和选举进程中,让我们生活的世界改变得更美好。
“每一票都意义重大。”
