Homosexuality increasing in schools – St Jean

Simeon Joseph

There is a growing trend of homosexuality in Dominican schools, according to Education Minister Peter St Jean.

The Minister indicated this while announcing at an official function, that he was reassigning one of the ministry’s key officials to investigate “deviance and homosexuality” in schools.

“The task of investigating and identifying the root causes of deviance and the increasing incidents of homosexuality among our student population,” has been assigned to former Secondary School Principal Simeon Joseph, the minister confirmed.

St Jean’s statement referred to a growing level of crime and violence “that seems to have pervaded our schools”.

Joseph has been tasked with making recommendations “including a practical and achievable work plan to the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development”.

“Mr Simeon Joseph will be the Ministry’s champion on the issue of crime and violence, and if you want to say, inappropriate behaviors among our youth of school age,” St Jean said.

The education minister’s homosexuality concern appears to have taken many off guard – not much has been said officially about that matter prior to St Jean’s statement on Wednesday.

The violence issue is a well documented one however, through media reports on a number of incidents in which students have attacked and injured teachers at a well known secondary school and at other educational institutions.

Saint Jean’s homosexuality concerns were articulated as he addressed a closing ceremony for 67 French teachers who underwent training over a four-year period organised by the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development, in collaboration with the Universite des Antilles et de la Guyane, and the Dominica State College.

    Dominicans are a bunch of effin hypocrites. Those ignorant fools will always remain backwards like labou on talon. I truly thought that this article was false, however, when I scrolled down to the comments and realized how closed and shallow minded the commenters are, I am left speechless. This is a classic form of bullying to the highest level. My question is where is the task force on rape by adults, adultery by adults, incest, molestation, children out of wedlock? Many of you on here would be found GUILTY. Dominica will never progress with you uneducated shallow mindedness. I am sick and tired of this backward attitude. I am blessed with 3 beautiful children, and if one of them turns out to be gay, I pray to Gid that I am not living in Diminica, a country that I loved so much.

    I’ve seen this day coming over 5 years ago. Fortunately I was and am a good listener in life so people confided many secrets in me. I BELIEVE along with the moral/social/religious break down the in community a major point that I haven’t seen being touch in the Lesbian homosexuality is due to MEN.

    Men in Dominica have mistreated they’re women for years, physically abused, raped, tormented and it goes on. I’ve had over 7 female friends who’ve told men they were raped by a family member from uncles, cousins, family friends and EVEN FATHERS.
    I have heard countless woman say they’re finish with men and going for love in comfort in women!
    If our men step up, take care of ourselves, PROVIDE, GET A GOOD JOB EDUCATE ourselves, we will be more than appealing for females not to consider homosexuality.

    They should give all lesbain video camera to film their actions so we can see and learn how to stay away from it. They should also give them lesbian a financial incentive like doubling their salary to cooperate in this educational drive.

    Here are a few possible reasons for the increase in homosexuality in local schools:

    1. Students’ unmitigated access to online pornography featuring both heterosexual anal sex and male homosexuality.
    2. Parents who are too caught up with their individual agendas and career goals to raise kids by the high standards we were raised only a generation or two earlier.
    3. Loss of our Christian values and a growing irrelevance of the Bible in today’s society.

    It will take a cultural change, a cataclysmic paradigm shift, of sacrificial proportion to correct these social issues. Lip service is not enough; we need to act quickly in order to save a generation from moral decay. But how can we win this battle when our kids are being raised on a continuous stream of American television and Internet content? Maybe we can’t win…

    Peace!

    Interesting… I would like to see the report highlighting results of this investigation done. Just a few observations:
    1. What does the laws of Dominica say about HOMOSEXUALITY?
    2. Are there plans to reform those laws?
    3. Is there a committee within the Ministry of Education charged with the responsibility for this report
    4. What is the role of the Ministry of Social Services, Ministry of Legal Affairs, and, the Ministry of Health in this?
    5. Has Civil society including the religious (Christians and other religious persuasions) been invited to participate in this process?
    6. What really is the underlying reason for this investigation?
    7. Was a survey done among students? teachers/staff? parents? others? to determine a need for this investigation?

    I will wait to see the outcome when the report is published…

        Animals also have sexual tendencies to non-living materials. They also do so with living things. I”m sure you’ve seen a dog hump a fowl already or a dog hump a human leg. It’s natural too?

Taking Dominica as and example, chritianity is almost dead. Faith in God has been lost. Men have now turn to evil. There is no law and no constitution. Prostitution, Adultery, Murder, theft,drug dealing etc are taken lightly.

    My Question is What happens at the end of this investigation when they’ve discovered Dick, Tom , Peter and the many others are in fact gay ? This is ridulous and a waste of time and money. It shows where this country’s priorities are. I need to see funding for a mordern,well equiped hospital. I need to see a state of the art track and field arena built. I need to hear that guns and violent acts are on the decrease. >>> so these people are stating that determining whether or not its citizens are homosexuals is more important than the issues I stated ? SHAME! SHAME! SHAME!

    First of all homosexuality is not natural , and no one was born this way , it is a choice that they all make for what ever the reason , social, economic , whatever the reason . but at the same time there is nothing the minister can do even if they were to find out that hundreds of boys a gay , that’s their civil rights and a personal and private decision that they make . what are they going to do expel them , throw them out of school? this is a private matter and should be left to parents to deal with that , take on bulling and violence ,drugs sale on school compound instead . the boys and young men are doing their thing in private and not hurting anyone, i am not saying i like what they are doing, maybe they a just troubled and have lost their way and hard times are causing them to do that . as i say i don’t believe homosexuality is natural and right , but who am i to decided what people do in their life and st. jean and Simone neither. take the beam out of your eyes first guys. take for example the garbage bin , fertilizer , Isidore and the passport(dual citizenship) , all these things are against the law of the land and what happen to the people who broke it ? nothing , so please give me a break. if my son is gay and st jean and company where to find out , i really wonder what would they do ? for me to take them to court for violating his civil rights. i will end by saying the most we can do is to educated our young boys on morality and about god , starting at the home. then again we have so many immorally people in this country , who are we going to get? i hope that all those priest and pastors pray for them .

        Rubbish! Get your facts straight. No one is born gay. The only definition attributed to that is when an individual is born with xxy chromosomes(This is an ERROR(abnormality) in the gene pool therefore its not natural). No one who is xx or xy is born gay. It’s a choice based on circumstance that takes place.

      Humans can be born with hormonal imbalances casing a male to act feminine or a female to act masculine they cannot control. It’s those that hide behind girl friends and lies that are an issue.

      In my opinion and in many European countries gay people, both male and female are recognised as individuals equal to heterosexual people. Many countries have legislation protecting people from persecution and off the cuff commentary based merely on their sexuality. It is my belief that the laws in these countries are based on the principle that gayness is not learned but innate. Be nice people and remember that every one is a human being and deserves respect :(

    The problem begins at home, not school. I know a few young men who are homosexuals and who have confirmed that they have tried to come out of it but they have failed. Speaking with a few of them revealed that they were introduced to it by either a neighbor, a relative who started abusing them or it came about through lack of parental supervision in some instances.

    Fathers…those so called “sperm donors” who give women babies and turn their backs on them, play your role….

    Mother’s who opt not to invest in their children, save providing meals and clothing and a roof over their heads….play your role.

    At the end of the day, the child is better equipped to handle the pressures of “becoming”, “doing” things that are not sociable.

    THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM IS THE HOME!! THE FOUNDATION!

    Know your kids! Spend time with them! engage them in conversation! Steer them in the right direction, so that they are not left to conform to the whims and fancies of today’s society…..

    Here are some thoughts from the Living Word:

    Proverbs 22:6
    Train UP A CHILD in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

    Proverbs 22:15
    Foolishness is bound in the heart of A child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.

    Proverbs 29:15
    The rod and reproof give wisdom: but A CHILD left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.

    Amen to Wisdom and Discipline, which fosters GREAT children!

      Great advice – apart from the “rod of correction”.

      Please don’t beat your children. It only enforces violence as a way of behaviour. If you bring up your children right, they will not need beating. If they do wrong, then work out other, non-violent ways of reprimanding them.

    Most part of pre shools and primary schools are boys or girls schools. It is in the yungest part of human live that a sexual preference can occur. Later, jung boys have more ” pressure” to come in a “common” sexual way.Young girls are more numerous to continue their friendly relationship and convert them in sexual lesbian behaviour without or having few social regard, but commonly turn to bi sexuality. Anyway if school have something to do in that matter,it is to teach in apropriate age (just after the nature make children man or woman able to procreate) what is sex and how to use it in view to avoid unwanted pregnancy, sexual deseases and Hiv.
    Never school and professors can be a fence against natural pulsion of young peopole when parents and church dismiss. Investigate about homosexuality is a nonsense. A lot of things about behaviour of childrens and student have much more priority

      you are talking ignorant talk. First of all if you were to research and find out why someone is gay or lesbian,you would have some sort of sympathy for them. It is something that happens even in the mothers womb and some of them have no control. Others could be because they are introduced to it. Have we even considered the effect of all the contraceptives that women take that can create a hormone imbalance? Instead of crucifying them be compassionate and kind. they were created in God’s image and likeness.

Remember that!. There is no reassurance that your new born baby may be straight. That your sister only likes boys. OR That either one of your parents havent been in a homosexual relationship. Dominicans are ignorant and foolish. And I can say that because i am a true Dominica. I do judge. Do Hate. So i know. But i can say! that a Dominican man prefer to sit down with a killer rather than a homosexual man. Now thats stupid :)

      We all know that this has existed since the beginning of time. If you want to file charges against someone for sexual misconduct with a child, so do. Parents have to try to keep their children safe. Unfortunately a lot of the child abuse takes place in the home from family related members. The schools have enough on their plate to try to teach the kids the basics. Many of the children go through the school system and still can’t read and can only spell their name and write numbers.

The government know about that yet, they have this child molester among the students. Don’t children have rights? Do we as adults really care about them? What kinds of demon mentors are we giving our youth? Some may say that this is the man’s life so he should live it as he pleased. Agreed! But he should have a job where he is working with and among adults like himself and not kids who are looking for role models.

      @ EH EH – Do you have proof that the principal has molested the children in his charge? I hope you know that this is slander and defamation of character. Are you also aware that heterosexuals are more inclined to molest a child than a gay person? Are you a Catholic? if so, I find that you are a hypocrite. No one molests more children than Catholic Priests and this is a fact.

    Check the principals first. At a certain school in Roseau whenever the male students wish to insult other male students they tell them about buggery. They insult each other in that manner to show their dislike for their homosexual principal. They cannot tell it to him so they are telling it to each other.

    You can trust homosexual behaviors have been in Dominica schools long time. I went school in the 90’s and there were many homosexual behaviors amongst school kids including boys. Please stop the hypocrisy. There’s nothing wrong with being homosexual. There’s something wrong with being a hypocritical, judgemental, deceptive, thieving, cheating and down right dirty low down Dominican! Thanks!

        ACtually I still have homosexual thoughts because I’m human. I female and so what nothing wrong with thinking about another woman. I’ve never been in a homosexual relationship. I can tell you in the heterosexual relationships I’ve been in with those whimpy and bastard DA felaz that waste my time I could have jolly well find a good woman. You all are filled with BS and nothing going on in the lower region. It’s well non that Dominican men aren’t only lower than crap but are also severely incompetent in providing simple intimacy to their women. I’m doing great now in a healthy dating relationship with a euro man and you can trust that if I decided to be with a woman I won’t waste my time with ay man. Life is too short to sit there and worry about what people think of you. You all not god!

Show me one book in the bible that states: written by GOD in it. One passage not written or intercepted by some crazy prophet! I bet if you go down the street right now and a jehovahs witness say his a prophet of god and that the earth was about to be destroyed you’d start giggling like he crazy. So then should I believe anything a bunch of men tell me as supposed prophets of god?

    Lets face the facts. School children DO have sex. Whether adults want to believe it or not. To be honest. Who cares, if parents don’t want to know where there children are and who they are with that is the parents decision. It shouldn’t matter if some youths are homosexual… the sexual orientation of very few school children should not be a national issue.

    Our school children are into buggery and this is not important. It is not a pressing issue such as teacher training.

    Who they are buggering or by whom they are buggered is not important. For what they are buggering is not important either.

    The high possibility of molestation of our boys is unimportant too.

    Wow wow wow.

    …until we find out that our 12 year old sons under our own roofs are well into it…

    ..that HIV is in our homes among our sons and daughters is not important.

    …that our 14 year olds might be sniffing cocaine and being buggered to get that coke…

    … that our 15 year olds have syphilis and gonorrhea in their backsides and we are unaware…

    So it’s straight out of school homosexuals that are robbing and raping people around D’a or perhaps it’s these same homosexual school children that that are shooting, stabbing, murdering and running drugs throughout the nation that this minister feels so fire-up to want to lead a special campaign against it!!

    I think I would want my taxes and the nations resources to be directed to more worthy and needing issues.

    If you ask me, Mr. Minister, you look like someone with some dark secondary school secrets. Stop being so guilty about any past feelings spend peoples money properly. Concentrate on getting these ‘homosexuals’ a proper education and job prospects and let them and their parents/family deal with their sexuality.

    I’ll keep this simple. If we had more fathers being fathers to their sons in Dominica, teaching them right from wrong, especially where sexual morality is concerned, i don’t think we’d be having this problem. I’m not blaming any woman for being a mother to her son, but a woman cannot teach a boy to be a man and teach him certain things that a man should know.

    To add insult to injury, they got this guy in the photo representing the ministry on this matter. All i can do is shake my head at these things.

    I will continue to say that homosexual conducts are provoked through the desire of the flesh–a sinful habit; it is the seed and fruit of the human senses processed and produced by the carnal mind of man Yes indeed! The activity starts in the mind, whether it is good or bad.

    The carnal mind of human beings is an enemy of God, it cannot accept God’s laws, unless this mind goes into it renewal process by the faith of its possessor

    There is no remedy for the outgrowing of homosexually and the other sins which human beings commit, if those who claim to be servants of God will not stand firm in faith and to preach the message of healing to mankind–pertaining to the sinful nature, of the flesh–not just homosexuality.

    Yes! By the stripes of Jesus Christ we are healed–this healing happens to our imperfect flesh and bones; when we are healed from a sinful nature only then can we enter Life in the Spirit–where we will learn and practice the perfect attitude and conducts which give our God delight.

    It does not matter how much we call ourselves “God fearing people” if we are not determined to surrender our lives to God by dying to the commands of the flesh, we are still human beings walking the path to eternal perish. For God is Spirit in Love and Holiness–Jesus tells us that the flesh profits nothing!

    In other words Life in the Spirit–there no sin, no sin at all. Brothers and sisters no sin can take you into Life in the Spirit to be in the presence of God Almighty–our creator.

    Jesus is waiting for each and every one of us to call to Him for the healing we must have. The man with leprosy said to Him: Lord if you are willing you can make me clean. Jesus said to the man: I am willing be cleansed! And so the man was healed from his sickness.

      Homosexuality in schools in Dominica is nothing new, I am over 50 and have experience of other girls constantly trying to molest me in school when I was much younger, and I left home at the age of 16, In 1980 while home on vacation I asked some of those now mature ladies about their behavior in school at such a young age, the same answer kept coming, Growing up I was constantly being abused sexually, and as a child protection officer, believe me! child abuse plays a big part in this behavior.
      Of-course there are those who are born this way like it or not, and there is nothing we can do about it.
      They need to be careful how they handle this situation by not stigmatizing those who engage in homosexuality. this might lead to more children being abused by both males & females.

What do you think is going to happen in the future if this ungodly lifestyle continues? Babies will not be born because two males or females cannot bring forth children. If we have to study our ancestral history as a people, we will realize that this kind of lifestyle did stat with us. We have adopted this lifestyle and think it is normal but it really is not.
    It seems like we have lost all sense of reasoning along with our divine and spiritual consciousness as a people and we are accepting all ungodly lifestyles which keep us at the bottom as a race of people. We were once a great and mighty people but we have allowed the European’s way of life to control our minds and therefore it is hard to be what we once were.

    Its long time they have homosexual students in our schools and they usually are the best behaved and most studious achievers. They help teacher and they take part in all the creative things that are going on at school and church. They grow up to be among the great contributors to our society.

    And St.Jean lumps these guys with knife weilding criminals!!!

    What is happening now is just that in this homophobic society they had to keep themselves under cover. Now the boys (and girls) have internet and TV and their BBs and they realise that you can be gay and a good citizen. Gay and proud. And so they coming out.

    And the bigger joke is St. Jean made this address in front of Martinique educators where homosexuality is not a criminal offence and French teachers are taught to accept homosexual students as they are. What will the tell their educational officials back home?

      Its long time they have homosexual students in our schools and they usually are the best behaved and most studious achievers. They help teacher and they take part in all the creative things that are going on at school and church. They grow up to be among the great contributors to our society.

      And St.Jean lumps these guys with knife weilding criminals!!!

      What is happening now is just that in this homophobic society they had to keep themselves under cover. Now the boys (and girls) have internet and TV and their BBs and they realise that you can be gay and a good citizen. Gay and proud. And so they coming out.

      And the bigger joke is St. Jean made this address in front of Martinique educators where homosexuality is not a criminal offence and French teachers are taught to accept homosexual students as they are. What will the tell their educational officials back home?

      St. Jean. I once supported you. But this is a mess.

    a lot of people that say he should not worry about the ”HOMO” virus that is growing now in the schools are GAY or BI so they dont find it as a problem but in truth it is a big problem. allu saying allu counttry is a god fearing nation so wht ignore this problem, where did you ever hear that god promotes this so for Dominica to remain a godly place it should stop the problem before it gets worse.

      You too hypocrite. Do you also want Dominica to follow these verses from the bible? If not, why not? The anti-gay verses are in the same Old Testament. No eating shellfish, no wearing clothes spun from two fabrics, etc.

      “A man whose testicles are crushed or whose penis is cut off may never join the assembly of the Lord.”

      “These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.
      10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you.”

      “You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together.”

      “You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the Lord.”

People you people should worry about whats happening in DA like the drugs and killings. Do you really think that most of the people who are affected with the virus in DA are gay? Wake up.

    STOP PRESS!!!!!!!!HOLD ON A MINUTE HERE……..I SAW THIS PIECE ON MARPIN NEWS LAST NIGHT AND THE MINISTER DID MENTION HOMOSEXUALITY AND CRIME AT THE SCHOOLS

    AND HE ENDED BY SAYING THAT MR. JOSEPH IS THE MINISTRY’S POINT MAN ON THE ISSUE OF CRIME

    I WONDERED THEN AND STILL DO NOW, HOW WILL ONE MAN BE ABLE TO TACKLE SUCH AN ISSUE

    ALSO, WHEN ASKED TO COMMENT ON THE STATEMENT OF THE MINISTER, MR. JOSEPH (ACCORDING TO NAZARINE GORDON) SAID HE WOULD NOT COMMENT ON THE MINISTER’S STATEMENT.

    LASTLY I AM CURIOUS ABOUT THE LINK BETWEEN THE MINISTERS STATEMENT AND THE CEREMONY AT WHICH IT WAS MADE WHERE CERTIFICATES WERE PRESENTED TO 67 TEACHERS WHO COMPLETED A COURSE IN FRENCH.

      The Minister need to concentrate on one or the other, and not link the tow, personally I think crime in our schools should be more of a priority.

    It seems like Dominicans want to pattern everything on the US but Dominicans must stay true to Dominica and keep it origonal.
    If the people of DA want to engage in these things, it is of Mr Stjean’s view furthermore the Minister to make that observation and comment on it even as a citizen of the Commonwealth.

    all the crimes thats going on in dominica you have nothing better to do tan investigate that bull,my question for you minister is what are you going to do after the investigation, throw them out, jail them i mean really? go look for work to do,if you dont know what to do let me give you a few ideas, make sure all children i given equal learning rights, that kids needs are met, make sure that they have equipment necessary to receive a proper education, and help make sure certain public schools are in appropriate environment so that children can learn well, talking non sense shoo

    My question is. During their investigation if by any chance they know of any students thats gay in the school what are they gonna do about it? Expell them from school? Hope they no what they are really doing. There are better things than that which needs to be addressed.I cam totally agree with the violence in school.this is going out of hands but the homosexual thing its taking it to far.

    June 7, 2012

    I am shocked and stunned!!!

    I think its a complete waste of resources.
    There seems to be a bigger picture of sexual conduct in schools, be it gay or straight. The schools need to ensure that these types of acts don’t take place on the school premises, mainly because these children are under the age of consent. But it seems that as more of more of the younger population are “coming out” its only now they want to sensationalize the issue and brand it a gay one.

    Interestingly no one was put in charge of minimizing crime in school, or training and preparing school children for the adult world of employment (as scarce as it may be). But because its “GAY” well lets rally the troops why dont we.

    Dear Hon. St. Jean,

    When is the report due? How much money has been allocated for this project? Is Mr. Joseph the only member contracted to carry out the investigation?

    Now it seems to me that there are a myriad of more burning issues that warrant the attention of the Ministry of Education and HRD: 70% of our secondary teachers are untrained while at the Primary level the figure is a whopping 63%. I can clearly overstand the concern with violence in our schools but this issue (non-issue?) of homosexsuality in schools is nothing more than a misnomer. There are soooo maaaany other matters that could be addressed with this money in these hard economic times.

    Please let us deal with the REAL issues. How about deciding that by the school year 2014 there will no longer be UNTRAINED teachers in ANY of our schools and that a sustainable developmental path for teachers which clearly defines mechanisms for upward mobility is instituted and salaries reflect the comensurate tasks with which teachers are challenged on a daily basis?

    I wish you well.

She bash the radio stations, and DNO about public opinions but any Minister or public figure that comes and says that they know anything about anything and did not get most of it from the media they are not worth their juice. Trust me. I am a UK minister secretary and the only way they a kept abreast of current affairs …people like me do the research while they are at some meeting or other.

    All crime/ unrighteousness is demonically inspired – homosexuality is demon driven. For those of you who are not spiritual will not understand and think its normal but there is a demon responsible for all act of evil. Many homosexuals have testified of their deliverance from demons of homosexuality/ Lesbianism. Once the door is opened, they move in.

        Only Christ can deliver you from this lifestyle. He still loves you but the lifestyle is what He died to deliver you from because the “wages of sin is death” – spiritual death as opposed to eternal life. Whether you believe or not does not eradicate this truth.

        Repentance is a complete turning away from evil deeds – whether lying, stealing, fornication, adultery, gluttony, homosexuality/lesbianism, etc. It is not staying in it and being comfortable and still expect to go to heaven when one dies.

        About being righteous, it is written “I am the righteousness of God in Christ”. Only through the LORD Jesus Christ is one righteous, not of oneself.
        When one receives the LORD Jesus Christ that one receives the Holy Spirit of God who leads us into all truth and into doing God’s righteousness. What the world deems right is wrong by God.

Never mind all the old hardback men messing with young school-age girls for top-up. Never mind pregancy in high school will likley mean the end of a girl’s education.

    I am so fed up of people in positions of authority who lose their way and direct their attention to the wrong issues.

    Mr. Minister, this is not about your personal likes or dislikes, this is about addressing the most important issues affecting our people.

    • ya kill me, si!!!!!!
      June 7, 2012

    Investigate what? Homosexuality is not a crime, it’s a lifestyle. No one condones these acts, but allocating funds to investigate homosexuality is simply unnecessary. There are more pressing issues to focus on, such as the conditions under which teachers teach in our Schools.

    • lol
      June 7, 2012

      agree. the minister himself needs some homo education. Waist of money. there is a drug issue in the schools. was that mentioned?

      there is no difference now with homes than before. its just that they are brave theses days and don’t care who knows. in pass generations if was a silent relationship.

      to investigate homosexuality in schools? you guys are jokers.

      what about abuse in schools? teenage pregnancy?

      Homosexuality is not a choice!

      You’re right. Homosexuality is not a crime at all. But it is a lifestyle which cannot be chosen but comes naturally.

    Homosexuality at secondary schools is nothing new, the only difference is that it appears that more students are “coming out.” Secondly, Barack Obama is looked upon as a role model for many males of African descent thus his endorsement of same sex marriage, gay people feel they have some hope.

    The Muslims expects the world to get increasingly worse because the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said it would be so terrible that people would be even having sex on the street. The man with some level of fear of Allah will only be able to say to him, “Please get a bedroom to do this.”

    In conclusion, no matter how ‘religious’ we are there is nothing we can do anymore. Allah calls me firstly to save myself and my family from hell fire. I leave these affairs to Allah, all we can do is to convey the message of Islam, it’s up to people.

      Religion has a strange way of robbing people of their mind to think.Do you really think that the message you have just conveyed based on your religious teachings is a solution to the crisis,what a shallow message. I will leave you with this. The man who does not do his own thinking is a slave, and is a traitor to himself and to his fellow-men.

      Please my mother was old school and told me not to play or talk to boys and I still not gay. I attended CHS with hundreds of girls, bathed in river and sea all summer long with my friends, and I still not gay sakway toneh. Is the hormones in the GMO foods that have them or what? We always had gay and lesbians aka Marco & malnom in Dominica, but what is with this new wave of everybody gay, bi,confused, lesbo. Give me a damn break this is just a further erosion of values on society. If you are what you are, you need no defense or explanation. I am black and that is obivious, why gays need to much attention?It’s because they know it’s unnatural and by planting the idea in younger and younger people’s head they will make this filthy lifestyle more main stream and harass other people who are not in support of it. I am sick and fed up of this gay agenda steadily being imposed on people.

      • Lord have mercy
        June 7, 2012

        The bible says that as it was in the days of Lot so shall be in the last days. People we are in the last days, which means that any time from now the second coming of Christ can happen. (Are you ready to meet Jesus when he comes? Are you sure you are going to heaven when you die). That portion of scripture has come to pass. Now in Lot’s time the homos were so desperate they were even breaking down Lot’s door to get to the angels that God sent to deliver whosoever was righteous in Sodom at that time. Lot even offered them his daughters. Dominicans there is a depth to this abomination, the surface is to laugh at their jokes, mingle with them, but further down that depth, they want you to accept their display of affection in public, accept their marriage to each other and their little ‘adopted children” family. Later when everything gets out of control, they abuse, dismember, destroy, rape, torture and kill their victims and that’s when Dominicans you have reach the depth of this abomination. The end result like Sodom is fire. People you cannot enter heaven with a sinful soul, you cannot enter the place where God dwells with sin in your life, you must first repent and accept Jesus Christ as your lord and personnal saviour so that he can clean you up spiritually while you have life not when you dead, it will be too late.

    thats all i can say, cause we need to bring back the values that we had int his country, gone are the days when the elders toke the time to speak to the young one and also i much say gone are the time when the young one listened as well. now our youth are more into what they see on TV, and lets face it television these days more than before glorify homosexuality.

    I do pray that this is not a continued trend.
