The government of SINGAPORE: Release Amos Yee - Sign the Petition!

Here are some collected information about the Case of Amos Yee.

First of all, he should not be arrested.

Everybody thinks that the real reason that Yee is arrested is because of his criticism of Lee Kuan Yew and not harming the feelings of Christians.

I believe this is the first petition that surfaced when Yee was first arrested. It was a statement to show that Christians are not offended.

I want to point out that the people played along with this 'deliberate intention of wounding the religious feelings of Christians in general' and reacted to it at a very early stage in the case.

Petitioning To SINGAPORE

Release Amos Yee from your anger

As Singaporeans, we are thankful for the laws of our land and trust in our courts. Our peace and freedoms in Singapore attest to that.

In regard to Amos Yee:
We are not offended by Amos Yee's statements. 
His opinions about our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ neither threaten our faith nor diminish our love for Him. 
Please release Amos Yee from your anger. 
We forgive him and desire he have a full life of contribution to his community ahead of him.

A reminder to my Christian brothers and sisters:
Those in our faith have a keen understanding for what it means to be on the wrong side of righteousness, we know we receive God's love through no merit of our own.

As ugly as Amos Yee's words were, we forgive because Jesus loved us despite our own fallen spiritual state.

To be forgiven is an extraordinary gift & we extend this gift to Amos Yee. 

"For if, while we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!" Romans 5:10
