On HK Catholics' concerns over same-sex marriage:

Yi Long - It's not about sexuality, it's about equal rights, and abusing religion to deny others the same rights as you, is despicable.

Cecilie Gamst Berg - The Catholic Church shouldn't be forced to do anything that goes against its beliefs. They can get married anywhere they want but should also respect organisations' right not to marry them.

Jessie Tong - There is no reason for the Catholic Church to impose its views on non-Catholics either. Non-Catholics are part of society too and their views also matter.

Maggie Butt - Shouldn't "love" be shared among the same sex too?

 

On new electric taxis on Hong Kong roads:

Yin Chi Chan - What the government should be doing instead is increasing the number of liquefied petroleum gas stations so the cabbies aren't wasting gas lining up to get more (not to mention blocking a whole lane of traffic for hundreds of metres and causing congestion for everyone else).

Chris Knop - This is a great step forward only problem is it is the franchised buses that are the real producers of roadside pollution. The likes of China's homegrown BYD (which Warren Buffett owns shares in) are selling electric buses all over the world yet the Hong Kong government is failing to act on this no-brainer solution that can instantly curb roadside emissions and improve public health.

 

On pollution in Guangdong's coastal waters getting worse:

Nick Shearman - Growing up in HK in the 70s and 80s the waters were pristine clean. Now, for most of the year they are filthy. I blame industry and government as they have hijacked the simple pleasures that ordinary people used to enjoy.
