Paul Kwong urged to explain his remarks
(07-11 12:56)

One of the organizers of the Occupy Central movement says it was inappropriate for the Anglican archbishop, Paul Kwong, to give a sermon calling on democracy advocates to remain quiet like Jesus in the face of crucifixion.
Reverend Chu Yiu-ming says as religious worker, Most Reverend Kwong shouldn't incorporate his political views in a sermon.
The sermon was also sarcastic towards the 500, mostly students, who staged a sit-in in Central.
Reverend Kwok Nai-wang from the Hong Kong Council of the Church of Christ in China said the Archbishop should explain his actions.
Meanwhile, the head of the Democratic Party, Emily Lau Wai-hing, has warned that the report of the taskforce on political reform could trigger civil disobedience protests if it excludes popular proposals for nominating Chief Executive candidates.
The government is to unveil the results of the public consultation on universal suffrage on Tuesday. At the same time, the Chief Executive will also make public his own report on political reform, which is to be submitted to the National People's Congress Standing Committee. --RTHK
