不坐褻慢人的座位––––要求香港聖公會大主教鄺保羅辭任全國政協委員之聯署聲明

「 1:1 不從惡人的計謀、不站罪人的道路、不坐褻慢人的座位、
1:2 惟喜愛耶和華的律法、晝夜思想、這人便為有福。
1:3 他要像一棵樹栽在溪水旁、按時候結果子、葉子也不枯乾.凡他所作的、盡都順利。
1:4 惡人並不是這樣、乃像糠秕被風吹散。
1:5 因此當審判的時候、惡人必站立不住.罪人在義人的會中、也是如此。
1:6 因為耶和華知道義人的道路.惡人的道路、卻必滅亡。」
(詩篇/聖詠 1:1~6)

新一屆的中華人民共和國全國政協名單中,香港聖公會大主教鄺保羅被委任為政協之一,是繼榮休大主教鄺廣傑後另一出任全國政協的聖公會主教。然而,我們對於鄺大主教接受是次任命表示強烈不滿。

政治協商會議是當今中共政權之下的花瓶,為擁護所謂的「中國共產黨領導的多黨合作和政治協商制度」,即中共「一黨專政」下統戰各花瓶黨以維持政權的工具;《中華人民共和國憲法》甚至言明政協會議為「有廣泛代表性的愛國統一戰線組織」,為一被統戰的組織。中共侵犯人權之歷史,尤其是宗教自由的迫害,信徒有目共睹;而鄺大主教身為港澳地區基督宗教之主要教會領袖,我們認為他應當辭任政協,理由如下:

一、政協是由所謂的「協商」方式產生,非由公正的民主選舉產生,
二、政協是「統戰」組織,加入政協意味著是加入中共暴政的「統一戰線」,及
三、政協旨在維護中共之一黨專政,而中共持續侵犯人權,基督信徒實在難以苟同。

普世聖公宗素來重視社會公義。我們希望鄺大主教以耶穌基督為榜樣,晝夜思想上主的律法,與中共保持距離,防止成為被統戰之工具。

歡迎全球基督宗教各宗派的教牧與弟兄姊妹聯署,特別是聖公會的教友。聯署時請註明姓名、頭銜(如有),地區及所屬宗派、堂會/牧區/堂區。

Not sitting in the Seat of Scoffers––A Petition Demanding the Resignation of the Most Reverend Paul Kwong, the Archbishop and Primate of Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui from the member of CPPCC in China

“1 Happy are those
who do not follow the advice of the wicked,
or take the path that sinners tread,
or sit in the seat of scoffers;
2 but their delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law they meditate day and night.
3 They are like trees
planted by streams of water,
which yield their fruit in its season,
and their leaves do not wither.
In all that they do, they prosper.
4 The wicked are not so,
but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgement,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
6 for the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.” (Psam 1:1~6)

On the list of the latest Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), The Most Reverend Paul Kwong, the Archbishop and Primate of Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui (Anglican Church), is appointed to be a member of CPPCC. However we are resentful to this appointment.

The CPPCC is a political vase of the Chinese Communist Party in order to maintain the so-called “Multi-party cooperation and political consultation under the leadership of Communist Party”, i.e. the one-party dictatorship. According to the Constitution of People's Republic of China, CPPCC is the “the united front of patriotism with wide representativity”; simply speaking, it is a “consolidated” pro-CCP organisation. Christians know clearly the history of violation against human right by CCP, particularly oppression on religious freedom. We think that the Most Reverend Kwong, as a key leader of Christianity in Hong Kong and Macao, should resign from the member of CPPCC, for:

I.The members of CPPCC are “consulted” instead of elected by a fair and democratic election;
II.The CPPCC is an “consolidated” pro-CCP organisation, therefore being a member equals to joining the “united front” of the CCP dictatorship; and,
III.The aim of CPPCC is to defend the one-party dictatorship of CCP, but Christian can hardly tolerate the continuous violation against human right by CCP.

The Anglican Communion always emphasises the social justice. We wish the Most Reverend Kwong will follow the example of Christ, meditate the law of God day and night, and keep a distance from the CCP government so as to avoid being used by the CCP.

We encourage all congregants and all clergies from all Christian denomination allover the world to sign this petition, especially Anglican/ Episcopalian. Please write down your name, title (if applicable), country/region and your denomination and church/parish.


Letter to
香港聖公會 Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui (Anglican Church) 鄺保羅大主教the Most Rev Paul Kwong
我們得悉大主教閣下剛被委任為政協之一,是繼榮休大主教鄺廣傑後另一出任全國政協的聖公會主教。然而,我們對於大主教閣下接受是次任命表示強烈不滿。

政治協商會議是當今中共政權之下的花瓶,為擁護所謂的「中國共產黨領導的多黨合作和政治協商制度」,即中共「一黨專政」下統戰各花瓶黨以維持政權的工具;《中華人民共和國憲法》甚至言明政協會議為「有廣泛代表性的愛國統一戰線組織」,為一被統戰的組織。中共侵犯人權之歷史,尤其是宗教自由的迫害,信徒有目共睹的。

基於以下理由,因此,我們要求閣下辭去政協一職:

一、政協是由所謂的「協商」方式產生,非由公正的民主選舉產生,
二、政協是「統戰」組織,加入政協意味著是加入中共暴政的「統一戰線」,及
三、政協旨在維護中共之一黨專政,而中共持續侵犯人權,基督信徒實在難以苟同。

普世聖公宗素來重視社會公義。我們希望鄺大主教以耶穌基督為榜樣,晝夜思想上主的律法,與中共保持距離,防止成為被統戰之工具。

We are informed that you are appointed to be a member of CPPCC. However we are resentful to this appointment.

The CPPCC is a political vase of the Chinese Communist Party in order to maintain the so-called “Multi-party cooperation and political consultation under the leadership of Communist Party”, i.e. the one-party dictatorship.

Christians know clearly the history of violation against human right by CCP, particularly oppression on religious freedom.

We wish you would resign from Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, for the reasons that:

I.The members of CPPCC are “consulted” instead of elected by a fair and democratic election;
II.The CPPCC is an “consolidated” pro-CCP organisation, therefore being a member equals to joining the “united front” of the CCP dictatorship; and,
III.The aim of CPPCC is to defend the one-party dictatorship of CCP, but Christian can hardly tolerate the continuous violation against human right by CCP.
