Buggery laws will not be repealed – PM

gay and lesbianPrime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit is adamant that buggery laws on the books in Dominica will not be repealed pointing out that he has not heard any ‘compelling’ argument to support such move.

“The government’s position in relation to this matter is stated in law and this matter is still on our books and will remain there for the foreseeable future,” he said on state-owned DBS Radio on Monday. “I don’t think any compelling argument can be made for it to be repealed.”

Newly formed minority rights group, MiriDom, recently shoved into the spotlight the issue of treating homosexuals equally in Dominica. The group has hinted it intends to ask the government to take another look at the buggery laws in Dominica with a view to having them repealed.

Skerrit said his government is willing to meet with the group, since members are citizens of Dominica and they have a right to express their views but stated that repealing the buggery laws is out of  the question.

“One has to look at the broader context of this request,” he stated. “As it is now, anybody who wants to engage in whatever activities can do so in the privacy of his home but one should not believe that the government is prepared, or thinking of or wanting to make this a public affair.”

He noted that if the buggery laws are repealed then other laws could also follow suit.

“The point is, it could be buggery today, tomorrow it will be incest and what other law they will want the government to repeal?” the prime minister remarked.

Meanwhile MiriDom has been getting high marks among groups that are pushing for gay rights internationally.

“Congrats to the new Dominican LGBT group Minority Rights Dominica (MiriDom) and their leader, Daryl Philip, for continuing a robust discussion on human rights for LGBT on the island,” a website named Queer Church News ran as its headline on Monday.

LGBT collectively refers to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.

On May 17, 2013 Dominica News Online published an article entitled “Group wants Catholic Church to address anti-buggery laws” in which the MiriDom called on the Catholic Church in Dominica to clarify its position on buggery laws on the island.

Queer Church News has described MiriDom’s approach as innovative. “MiriDom is localizing the issue of human rights for LGBT through an innovative approach of using the Catholic church to call for decriminalization,” the website said.

The site reminded its readers of a incident in March 2012 in which two gay men were arrested and charged for having sex on the balcony of a cruise ship. The matter gained international attention with many gay groups calling for a total boycott of visits to Dominica.

The site also said that “MiriDom also has an ongoing poster campaign, supported by AIDS-Free World, which calls for respect of human rights for all Dominicans.”

“These posters are placed in local watering holes, etc. and have generated a good amount of discussion on what human rights means,” the site stated.

Philip has confirmed that the poster campaign is ongoing and said it not just about homosexuals. “It is all about respecting other people’s right to be,” he said.

    Since when is Dominica a Theocracy? Everybody using the Bible to discriminate against gay/lesbian people?

    Dominica’s laws should not be based on the Bible, but upon secular social justice that respects human rights: and in this case the need for non-discriminatory laws that respects the rights of LBGT people.

      “Caribbean governments are totally willing to talk about human rights, they want to give a good show on the issue, but they repeatedly prove unreliable in giving any teeth to those ‘commitments’”, said Colin Robinson, Secretary of the Caribbean Forum for Liberation and Acceptance of Genders and Sexualities (CariFLAGS), a 16-year-old indigenous LGBTI network which has recently set up offices in Castries, Kingston, Port of Spain and Santo Domingo. “The creation of Caribbean societies was founded on the persistent violation of human rights”, he said. “Postcolonially, Caribbean nations ought to be among the most visionary and eager champions of human rights. But when it comes to letting our people be free to enjoy their bodies with dignity, we’re clinging to pre-Emancipation practices, and proud to remain at the bottom of the class in the Americas.”

    Prime Minister Skerrit’s statements are political and cowardly, lacking in Leadership! Shameful.

    He cannot walk on President Obama’s footsteps!

    I am sure within his conscience he cannot justify Discrimination and Prejudice against homosexuals, but like Pontius Pilate he “washes his hands” of the matter!

    Few persons-gay or straight-have sex in public; so why the reference that gays can have sex in private, but not in public? In other words gays should not exhibit “gay tendencies” in public; but straight people can display affection unperturbed.
    Lastly, who says only gay people engage in “buggery” (anal sex)? Heterosexuals do too. But when last has a man been arrested for “buggering” his woman?

    MiriDom needs to challenge in Court the unconstitutionality of discriminatory laws against LGBT people in Dominica,(and others) which would result in the repeal of such archaic legislation! Hire some good Lawyers! You will win.

    Example: Why cannot Ministers of the Religion run for political office?

    @Frank McMullan May 27, 2013 And what did Jesus have to say about homosexuality? Nuttin!

    Jesus did not say anything about homosexuals because in His days on earth He simply referred to those men Eunuchs–however they ware made–even by their choice to serve God.

    And so those men were born Eunuchs, or chose to remain Eunuchs, or were made into Eunuchs for whatever reasons, but they all lived a celibate Life–not that nastiness and shamefulness that homosexuals are doing today–that was the reason Jesus mentioned them to His disciples

    Jesus was talking to His disciples about marriage and divorce pertaining its laws according to God’s command–His disciples suggested that it would be better not to marry because of those tough laws in marriage. Read it at Matthew 19

    In the end Jesus said to His disciples, if anyone of them felt that they could remain without a wife–meaning without sexual interaction–they should go ahead and stay unmarried.

    So here we hear Jesus saying that the man who lives a celibate Life in this world today, is living a Life that is higher state of Spiritual Life than the man who is married–so what do you think is His take on the conducts of homosexuals today.

    And there are men who are living a celibate Life in this world, for the Book of Revelation tells us the Jesus will choose 144,000 men to rule with Him in heaven, those men will be virgins because they will not be defiled by women

    But not only that, if you read Matthew 19, you will hear Jesus saying this to the unbelieving Pharisees of His days:

    The Pharisees also came unto Him, tempting Him, and saying unto Him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?

    And He answered and said unto them: Have you not read, that He which made them at the beginning made them male and female?

    And He said: for this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they joined together shall be one flesh?

    Wherefore they are no more one and one, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let no man put asunder

    So did God made a male person to be joined together with another male person as in “one flesh”? I say no way! And homosexual conducts is horror before the Holy God–they shall have their rewards at His appointed time

    Dominica is a fractured primitive society.

    They would rather spend time on this than real issues with incest, child abuse, familial violence, and pure BOM…where a generation of young women are opening their legs to pay their bills.

    But…this is what they are focussed on.

    Totally nuts.

    Thank God for PM Skerrit and all who support him! There are multiplied thousands of people in other countries who wish they had a man like him running their nations. I am one of them! Please allow me to make the following comments to you nay sayers in Dominica. Your PM has represented the wishes of his majority. He has been faithful to the clear teachings of the Holy Scripures that forbid homosexuality. His refusal to decriminalize homosexuality re-affirms the truth that God has appointed human governments and delegated to them the authority to enforce the Divine laws in this world according to Romans 13:1-4. (This applies only to the laws of God that are given to us in the New Testament. The Old Testament law ended at the cross when Jesus was crucified according to Romans 10:4 and other scriptures.) Mr. Skerrit has shown wisdom by considering the future. In countries where homosexuality has been decriminalized same sex marriage soon is legalized and then comes adoption rights. Your PM is right when he says if they repeal buggery laws today who knows what laws they will want to repeal tomorrow. It is the same problem with same sex marriages. Once they are legalized what do we do when people want polygamous marriages? Brother-sister marriages? Parent-adult child marriages? What I admire most about Mr. Skerrit’s stand is this. He has refused to be bullied by the USA, the UK, or the UN! This is the man for Dominica! Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Pentecostal Evangelist.

    Yes, buggery will continue as it has since the days of Sodom and Gomorrha. But at least the government and police (civil authorities) will still have the ability to contain it. If a “gay” cruise ship would dare to come to your shores as it did in March 2012 – when you had anti-buggery laws on the books – and give you a live sex show before an audience can you imagine the field day these people would have if you ever repealed those laws? More and more people are realizing that in the world of gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transexuals we are not dealing with normal human sexuality. It is something out of context, grossly exaggerated, and warped. It is not merely the same in essence but different in the sense that it is same sex rather than opposite sex. Anybody who has witnessed a gay pride parade in a city where homosexuality has been decriminalized will understand words like out of context, exaggerated, and warped. This is not normal love and sexuality. It is abnormal and off the charts. They themselves don’t seem to know the boundaries when it even comes to what you can or cannot do in public. That is why there should be such laws in every nation and and they should be enforced. Those nations that have decriminalized buggery and legalized same sex marriage (including my own beloved Canada) have taken themselves out from under God’s protection. Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Pentecostal Evangelist.

      May 28, 2013

      Rev. i accept the stance that you are taking based on your biblical teachings that is what the church is supposed to do. my problem is with the state. the state should never get involved in criminalising an act that it deems imoral or anti christian when that act does not hurt anybody or trampels on the rights of other individuall. i am not gay but i have a serious problem when the state starts policing morality if the state gets into that habit then we are going down a slippery slope. what if the state decided that fornaication is imoral and its starts criminalising fornication what then. what if the state decided that oral sex is imoral and make it a crime for me to go down on my lady or for her to pleaseure me. what then. the fact is an individual has a right to do what he wants when he wants as long as his actions does not harm anybody or deprives anybody of thier basic human rights.

      • May 29, 2013

        Just a Thought: Thank you for your sensible response to my comments. You have made a good point. God has delegated to human governments the authority to rule over us. Romans 13:1-4. They have the right to enforce the moral laws God has given us in the New Testament. But some laws obviously cannot be enforced because (a) there is no way of knowing who is breaking them or when and (b) if the offenders could be caught the courts would be so full it would be impossible to prosecute the more serious crimes. So these things should be considered SINS not CRIMES. But homosexuality has serious enough consequenses to be dealt with by the civil authorities and it is within their reach to do so. For hundreds of years every Christian nation has recognized this and had laws against homosexuality on their books. I don`t think we need to be concerned about governments in a democratic and free land passing laws that would interfere with love making within the marriage relationship. If they did I would consider such laws invalid and void because they would have no Biblical basis. Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Pentecostal Evangelist.

    One of the things that must be noted is that a persons stature in society is not immune from having religious beliefs and so is a person education level,the religious beliefs always takes the center stage as in the case of the PM.
    When the PM says quote “The government’s position in relation to this matter is stated in law and this matter is still on our books and will remain there for the foreseeable future,” he said on state-owned DBS Radio on Monday. “I don’t think any compelling argument can be made for it to be repealed.” What a naive statement.Leadership sometimes can demand making tough decisions.
    I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.
    Mahatma Gandhi.It should also be noted that A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus,Martin Luther King Jr.

    The PM belief that their is no compelling argument on the matter is somewhat a fatacy belief to adhere to. This tells me The PM chooses not to be informed on such matter ignoring it.The Bishop statement regarding The Vatican position states “The Catholic Church maintains that free sexual acts between adult persons must not be treated as crimes to be punished by civil authorities” Isn’t this not based on solid argument to arrive at such conclusion. The PM rules a country of a population 70,000 The Vatican has over a billion followers and they were brave enough to come to such conclusion, and this resulted I’m sure as result of solid argument,come on PM.Dominica is a Member of The UN and the Government just recently signed a declaration regarding LGBT rights wasn’t their an argument within your cabinet before signing such declaration.What is the double standard Internationally the Government supports a declaration defending LGBT, locally refusing to see an argument,to make laws or amending an old law addressing LGBT rights,pleasing two masters, The international community and The local populace who strongly oppose such laws because of religion, which seems to me as politicking.

    I respect The PM religious beliefs.This matter is not going to vanish in thin air simply because The PM believes that there is no argument,that is just fantasy. The world is changing, people are also changing, and yes Governments need to address certain things regarding it citizens especially when a minority is marginalized and treated unfairly under the law simply because of their sexual orientation.Playing politics or not wanting to see an argument for such matter is not making that matter go away.

      Just a note on the “bravery” of the Catholic Church as regards The Vatican position which states “The Catholic Church maintains that free sexual acts between adult persons must not be treated as crimes to be punished by civil authorities”. Note: civil authorities. This is a human rights matter, and the Church stands firmly for respect of human rights. This should not be counted as bravery, but as logic, as the Church has never, does not, and will never condone homosexual acts.

      All in all, the Church asks that the homosexuals not be stoned in the streets for things they do in their own bedrooms. What they are hoping to do, however, is to cure them of their homosexuality using as much prayer, holy water and counselling that they can muster.

      Ergo: understanding does not equal acquiesce, nor does tolerance equal acceptance

They are merely seeking a means to be free to make their own choice to be with whomever they want to!! Just like you or anyone else is free to be straight, they want to be free to have same sex relationships!! Its called FREEDOM of CHOICE!!!!

    • August 23, 2015

      Only fallen, broken, depraved, and degenerate human beings would think homosexuality is a “human right”. Who else would want to practice such an abomination much less think it is their “right” to do so?

      Because God knew human being are fallen creatures subject to any and all temptations He gave us laws to keep us away from behavior that would be harmful to ourselves. Nobody has a “right” to break the laws of God. When I hear these creatures talking about their “rights” I find myself asking “Who or what do they think they are?

      Heterosexuals and homosexuals already have an equal right to marry somebody of the opposite gender.
      Apart from this all the laws apply equally to everybody. Nobody has a “right” to break the law. If I visit Dominica will I have a right to break a Dominican law? What if I tell you I am not a Dominican or I do not “believe” in your government? Would that give me the “right” to break your law?

    Dominicans needs to get it right. The gay community is a very vibrant and young one. We have membership as young as 16 and all the way up. The diversity in Dominican gay community is very wide, and we span many economic and professional walks of life. No we are no longer an insignificant minority. While you people are making all your comments many of your sons, daughter, uncles, cousins and even husbands belong to the community. We are your lawyers, priests, bankers, accountants, brokers and we sell you services which you needs. We are organized and structured. This means that the outreach is far beyond Dominica and the Caribbean, where we can garner financial backing and force the political will. Skerrit is getting old and on his way out. Equality will happen in Dominica like it or not or suffer the economic isolation. You guys love to go to the international arena to beg for money but make no joke about it, we have strength in numbers and Dominica will suffer strict embargoes unless these laws are changed. Say all you wish but change is coming, if Uganda can get gay marriage Dominica is just a speck . You backward thinking people.

    God Bless u Mr. Prime Minister. You have endeared yourself to your God, your people and certainly your family. In a matter of pleasure you move with the flow. In a matter of Biblical principle you stand like a rock. Do not ever divide from your christian spiritual mentors. Ever. Let the Lord be your guide thru His Bishops and pastors. Amen.

      I agree with you 100%. The media seems to like that topic. DNO in particular seems to be searching around for gay news items and every now and then pops up with the gay topic..I wonder what is DNO’s agenda. I recall they went as far as sending a reporter to a gay conference in D.C.

    3rd – Remember this gov’t was advised by current UN ambassador to the remove anti buggery law because, and he warned, that the UN is planning to tie aid to discrimination against buggery and anti-gay laws?

    So this could be a setup where they are all involved in putting together this organized gay stance so that they can bow to the pressure later. I hope not. Bwcause, why would the gov’t and PM make public statement in response to some unknown group that wrote a letter?

    This effort could be put to better use towards getting Domlec to lower their crippling high rates that discriminates against the poor minority.

    Homosexuals may think they want rights and have rights and they will pursue more rights. Even in the countries where they are allowed to marry, they still do not have full rights and never will. They will go to the extremity of wanting their rights. There are times and for the protection of patients’ health, in this case, they will not be granted.
    I recently heard on Toronto TV that homosexuals (they call themselves gays; I call them as it is, homosexuals) are prohibited from giving blood. In order to give blood, they must be “celibate” for years. When I heard this I laughed.
    This is another matter they have been fighting for before the Canadian Courts (I wonder about the US), to be a blood donor.
    A few years ago some donated blood. Those patients who were given this blood transfusion got contaminated with HIV AIDS. Who knows? Some may have died, others may be on the brink of death, and some others may be bedridden and suffering. Those who were affected sued the hospital. No doubt also the Red Cross, by the hospital.
    This celibacy for five years will be difficult to prove. I wonder how will The Red Cross know and prove if they were celibate for 5 years? Surely, it will never be proved. I feel they will never be able to donate blood. This is one way and rightfully so to prevent them from donating blood.
    Who wants their blood? Not me! I cringe at the thought of it. I pray that I will never find myself in such a position.
    Patients who receive blood transfusion do not know whose blood they received. Obviously, it is a private matter which cannot be divulged to them. The responsibility is on the Red Cross and hospitals to ensure the blood is not contaminated. There are people who will not want the blood of homosexuals for obvious reasons.
    Dominica Government, Chief Medical Officer, P.M. Hospital and Red Cross, please take note and beware!

    I’m confused. Dominican law forbids buggery: period. Other laws protect against lewd conduct in public. The Prime Minister says he has no problem with buggery between consenting adults in private. Yet, he declares that the law must not be repealed because the arguments against it aren’t good enough. His own argument against it is sufficient imho!! Yet most people here see the Prime Minister’s stand as laudable. I honestly perceive it as laughable.

    And meantime a substantial minority of the citizens of Dominica are marginalised and demonised for their unnatural behaviours. The only thing unnatural for a totally homosexual person is to be heterosexual. I understand the Bible to prohibit many sexual sins: homosexual rape (the sin of Sodom); ritual male prostitution; incest; pedophilia; divorce; adultery, though not polygamy. Nowhere does the Bible refer good, bad or indifferent to committed same sex relationships. The Bible was written in a time when homosexuality was not understood the way it is now. And what did Jesus have to say about homosexuality? Nuttin!

    Slowly but surely, the world is moving away from its view of homosexuals as sick sinful criminals required to be afraid of their own shadows, closeted, guilt-ridden and mortified by who they are. In some countries this is happening more quickly than others. But the genie is out if the bottle and it is far too fabulous ever to go back in again – no matter the cost in human terms to those who lead the fight for human rights for all such marginalised people. The price paid by homosexuals for the cruel way our society has forever treated them has always been way to high anyway! The very fact of this discussion, poisoned and all as it is in many cases, is evidence of this. For far too long this subject was so taboo, it couldn’t even be discussed.

    A time will come, sooner than later imho, when ordinary Dominicans will look back at the hateful way their forebears treated their fellow marginalised lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered citizens and wonder where the Christianity was in that. This I believe with all my heart.

    • Black Carib
      May 28, 2013

      With all due respect to you sir, the bible clearly condemns Homosexuality – read the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, read about how God destroyed them. And this is evidence that it was understood then because the bible says in times of ignorance God winks-if they did not know better He would have taken a different measure of correction.

      Furthermore sir read the story of creation -more specifically Genesis 1: 26. God created male and female and he gave them the command to be fruitful and multiply and means to bring forth after their own kind like the animals do. Now tell me sir can two men bring a child or two women. Sir, this is the devil’s plan to destroy the human race.

      I am not condoning hatred for any particular group for I accept, shake hands with and hug anybody but we must not condone what is wrong and obviously unnatural.

      “A time will come, sooner than later imho, when ordinary Dominicans will look back at the hateful way their forebears treated their fellow marginalised lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered citizens and wonder where the Christianity was in that.”?

      No sir, a time will come when we will have seen the a sad state of moral decay in other places and we will be glad that we did not subscribe to it (homosexuality). Believe that with all your heart sir.

        yes it is ethically and morally wrong, but is it a crime. whos rights are being trampelled upon when two consenting adults perform a sexual act, be it buggery or straight sex. the state should should not be criminalising an act that does not do any harm to anybody. if we go down that road whats preventing the state from criminalising oral sex or any other sexula position that it seems “morally wrong”. morality is for the church not the state.

      Mr. McMullen,
      How very eloquent. I have heard this argument before. And without thinking any further, certainly for someone who has never read the bible, it could be very convincing. But the notion that Jesus not specifically mentioning homosexuality is an indication that He did not consider it a sin is ridiculous. What IS understood is that God made man to be with woman. THAT is His design and THAT is His will. Period. Claiming anything else turns God into a liar, which is impossible. AT no point anywhere in the bible does God endorse homosexuality. Nowhere is homosexuality regarded in positive terms. If the following verse doesn’t make that abundantly clear, it can only be because you CHOOSE not to believe. Or, of course, they just didn’t “understand.” smh

      Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is AGAINST NATURE: 1:27 And likewise also the men, LEAVING THE NATURAL USE OF THE WOMAN, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

      Keep seeing us as backwards, ignorant morons. The mentality that it is only inevitable that this will change in Dominica is the same elitist, colonizer mentality that has led to so much destruction in the world. “You do what I say because I know what;s best for you. You have no choice.”

  37. May 27, 2013

    In order to justify homosexual and lesbianism acts, people keep bringing up fornication and other sins. As I said to another blogger below, while Daddy God hates all sins, I don’t see other sinners crying for special privileges and rights.

    I don’t see fornicators, adulterers etc forming groups against churches and governments in an attempt to legalize and accept their sins. Homos/lesbes are the ones who make noise and form all kinds of groups to invade society and have their SINS accepted as normal and legal.

    If they CHOOSE to sin, like every other sinners, then it is between them and Daddy God, but when they push to have it legalized and accepted that is another story. This is the core issue here- the push for special recognition and privilege for a man to be riding another man from behind and for a woman to have another woman’s head in her kookoolooks.

    What privileges and rights are they seeking exactly? an award for being special?

      the differnce is sex between unmarried people (fornication) is not criminalised but Buggery is so these people have a point. both are sins but only one is criminalsed. the question is why. if the state descided to criminalise fornication i bet you and i would form a group and demand that we get the right to have sex with all the nice women we see. because us having sex with women would be hurting noone.

    “Later He(God), turned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into heaps of ASHES and blotted them off the face of the earth,making them an EXAMPLE for all the ungodly in the future to look back upon them and fear (be afraid).”

    I sincerely wish that Mr.Daryl Phillip would read this warming from the God who said.
    “It is not good that MAN should be alone,I will make him a help comparable to him….He took a rib from Adam and made a woman,and brought her to him (Adam).”Genesis 2:18 and 21-22
    God is saying people who are determined to live this same degenerate life in the future, will think twice and look back.In other words learn from history.

      @J.J.John-Charles
      You may be quoting from the Living Bible but you are also mixing issues. No one is talking about removing rights of the straight people referred to in your Genesis quote. We have heard the Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve quote to ad nauseum, but it does not solve the problem before us.

      People who are born gay did not ask to be made that way. Now they have had enough of our prejudices and they are facing the storm to seek their human rights.

      They are talking about the rights of people who are different and who wish to live a normal life in their own context.

      They are not asking to have sex in public or to impinge on any other person’s rights or safety.

      As I understand it MiriDom just wants the stigma of the ancient and draconian law that exists in Dominica removed from their lives.

      I hope MiriDom does not give up. From timeimmemorial, prejudice mixed with religion has been the most cruel dispenser of injustice the world has ever seen. MiriDom people will need a lot of intelligence, good sense, gumption and longevity to get this wall of ignorance.

        Who the hell you callin IGNORANT?? You’re the ignorant one because you have no idea what the hell you’re talking about. There was NEVER any problem with homosexuals in Dominica until this came up. The law was just dormant on the books. No one has been discriminated against for being gay and no one had to publicly announce that they were gay. You just knew it, and that was that. There was no “injustice” against gays in Dominica.
        Whether or not a person was “born that way” is irrelevant. This is about a group of people seeking to impose their narrow agenda far and wide. It is about trying to force the world to turn from God, one step at a time; this is just the next step in the program. It is the devil’s work. Yes, people have misused and manipulated the word of God for their own evil purposes. This is no different. Forcing a society to treat a way of life we all KNOW is sinful and destructive because it contradicts the will of God IS manipulating His word, turning His truth into a lie. There is no great ignorance than not being knowing the mind of God, no matter what you think.

    • May 28, 2013

      Speak up J.J.John Charles Let no one shut you up. People are too bold and not realizing they are contending against the almighty God. In the beginning God’s plan was to make man [plural] and He executed His plan by making one male and one female and commanded them to MULTIPLY to fulfill His plan to fill the earth with humankind. But satan decide to counter God’s plan by having the male with the male and the female with female so that multiplication will not take place; instead, there is division and subtraction.

      But satan can never stop God’s plan. To further worsen things, these people want to get married and adopt other children to transfer their demonic acts on them. Homosexuality and lesbianism is demonic in nature and transferable. If you think it is so natural for two male and two female to get married and have a family, then you should be able to procreate- have scientists create a womb for you to carry your own children and stop dragging people’s children into this sodomite life. J.J. do your thing my brother.

      This is what the scriptures also says;

      Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.” (I Corinthians 14:34-35)

      When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draweth near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of him that smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh him by the secrets: then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pity her.” (Deuteronomy 25:11-12)

      Oh by the way I’m still trying to find out where God said he destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of Homosexuality.I read your Bible quote and it said God destroyed these so called cities because of the ungodly behavior of the inhabitants,where does this tie in to Homosexuality.Do you know the amount of horrific atrocities that are carried out in the Bible sanctioned by that entity called God and this is still going on today covertly.

        Or is it that you don’t really know yourself–but you simply take pleasure in that bluffing habit of yours?

        Anyway, what Paul talked about, in that Scripture was that the women of the church at Corinth were always in argument about the different dressing among the Jewish and Gentile woman as they came together as the Christian Church.

        The Jewish women wore hats and the Gentile women wore nothing on their heads–it was all about religious rules and regulations that was not a part of the Church–that is the reason Paul told the settle their difference at home with their husband and not to bring it in the Church.

        May 29, 2013

        Tony, for your information only; nobody took Jesus life in spite of his crucifixion.

        For he said in his words he lay down his life. I am not quoting scriptures verbatim here, however you will remember he said to his father “It is finished.” Read it in the Bible for yourself, and you will not go into the direction I see you are venturing into.

        Right now you are focusing on the Jews, but before you cause a curse to come on you by having anything derogatory to say about the Jews, be informed that Jesus main purpose to come into the this world was to die on the Cross for the sins that we commit on this earth.

        He died for the remission of our sins, now that does not give us a license to kill, steal lie, plunder, to do all of such, as craving the flesh of another man, involving one self into homosexuality

        All humans alive as decedents of Adam inherited a sinful nature,: as the Bible said ” all men are born in sin. As a result of Adam mistake, Jesus had to come to correct that by the shedding of his blood for the cleansing of our sins. Now unless you can accept it as simply as that and accept Jesus Christ, as Lord and Savior in your life, you soul is granted lost.

        Depend not on any so called reverend, to guide you in the path of righteousness, because only the word of God can do the, some of the people who like to be called reverend are absolutely tools of Satan, ands some of them express their opinions right here on DNO.

        The same as the Bible teaches “call no man on earth father” and that is in reference to people who preaches, he also said do not call anyone Rabbi. In one Psalm we are taught that only he is Reverent, Reverent is his name!

        However, in the book of Matthew, the word taught us that people who preach the word of are actually servants to the people.

        Any body who wishes to challenged me on anything I wrote here, may feel free to do so, that will give me the opportunity to wipe their face clean with the scriptures verbatim as they are written.

      • May 29, 2013

        @Tony May 28, 2013

        Who killed Jesus? The Jews wanted Jesus dead, because they did not accept His claims that He was the Christ, the Son of the Living God, but they did not kill Him themselves, as they left the decision for Pilate who was not a Jew

        The reason the Jews did not do the dirty work, it was because His death would happen during the Passover Week, which was a Holy ordination to them from God. It is believed that Jesus died on the Sabbath Day of the Passover –since He was arrested the night before the Sabbath of the Passover week.

        Also, His body was to represent the Passover Lamb whose blood would be shed for the sin offering to God Almighty on behalf of mankind, once and for all. The Jews did that with the blood of real Lambs every year before Jesus walked the earth.

        The Jews would have nothing to do with killing a person during the Passover week, most certainly not on the Sabbath Day of that week.

        So they hand over the dirty work to Pilate and though he found nothing wrong with Jesus, for fame and power he gave Jesus to the Gentiles–those who were not from the House of Israel–and they crucified Jesus in the place of Barabbas who was the true cranial So the dirty work was done by the hands of the Gentiles. Nonetheless, we are the one who have Accepted Jesus today, not the Jews.

        However, prophecy had to be fulfilled, otherwise no one could have laid a hand on Jesus, if it was not given to them to do so, by the Power of Almighty God

That screams of homophobia and ignorance. First of all OT laws from way back when should not be at the forefront of the laws for a nation. The only acts that should be prohobited and pnishable are those that actually pose a threat to Dominica and it’s inhabitants, homosexuality and OTHER abominable acts and sins fall under the category and if you want to play mahjoh then ALL of the old testament ABOMINATIONS should be punishable in Dominica as well.

      Utilize your common sense. Even though the others are sins, they are not to be compared with two men and two women in this type of relationship. They are affairs with a couple, a man and a woman. This is why it is not in any Law of the government in the western world. Next time, put on your thinking cap. You should have one to make you think and comment sensibly.

        This is true. All sin is sin but obviously there are different degrees of sinfulness. Homosexuality is in a class by itself. The Apostle Paul singled it out in Romans 1:26 when he said it is “…against nature.” People should read the entire context of Romans 1:21-28. For this sin God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrha. Jude vs. 7 clearly states that this is meant to be an example. Homosexuality also played a part in the fall of ancient Greece and Rome.

    Man, we have endless ideas here. We should look at the real reason for the destruction of Sodom coming from the mouth of God himslef, not from the simpleton Bible thumpers who see and hear but dont understand. Check how many times homosexuality was metioned – by God:

    “Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. [50] And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.”

    Ezekiel 16:49-50

    How many of us talking are full of pride, greed, selfishness and otherwise abominate ourselves, be it with fornication, adultary, with relatives, with children, with diseases, with nastiness?

    I see a lot of abomination on the dance floors these days, in Carnival and on stage.

    Finally, if you care enough research and find out the meaning of Soodom. It is a tortore chair, the Sodomites used to stretch people they did not like, especially visitors who dared to enter their city, until they were torn apart. That is how they got their name.

    This is the 21st Century. Wake up my people. Information abounds. All things are coming to light. No need to remain stupid – and wicked, and make hell of the lives of people who are different from you, but who are harming no one.

      What you see as you stated are by no means the practice of homosexuality. They do not relate to this article. Therefore, stick to the issue of homosexuality and buggery laws. These are what is being discussed; not affairs between a man and a woman. For you it is the 21st century. Do you think God cares? Time is nothing for him. He has set his Law and it will remain until the end of time.
      Whatever era we reside in, you are aware and by the numerous comments that God punished Sodom and Gomorrah, those who practiced this abomination. It is God’s world. In time, He will, once again, punish those of this era.

      You are right but we need to ensure that not because is not condemn that we should embrace all. The bible Condemns all sin but were specific on what were abominations and we cannot continue to make excuses for things which are abnormal and defy the creation of God’s plan. The State has a right to reject abnormality. The State does not offer salvation, it is not the duty of the State to decide which sin is legal and which is illegal. In the eyes of God all sin is illegal. For example, the bible did not give us an age of consent, but the State used logic, reason and nature to decide. There must be a reason why they chose to keep this as law. When we first heard of AIDS, the predominant victims were homosexuals, why? Something is abnormal about it.

      It is amazing how people twist the scripures to create for themselves a sort of “gay theology” that condones homosexuality. What you should know is this. Your gay “interpretations” of certain scriptures originated with homosexual men who wanted to live like sodomites and yet excuse their sinful lifestyle so they could still be professing Christians. No genuine Bible scholar ever interpreted the scriptures this way. These ideas did not come from accredited theologians. This is not what the church has taught anywhere in the world for 2,000 years. It is not the way the Jewish people understood their Hebrew scriptures for over 1,000 years before Christ. Anyway, lets take a look at the verses you have referrd to. Ezekiel 16:49-50. In vs.49 God says the people of Sodom had plenty but were lazy, and did not help the poor. Then in vs.50 He says “And they were haughty, AND committed abomination before me…” The other sins were offensive to God but Genesis 19:1-11 shows us the abomination spoken off in Ezekiel 16:50 is homosexualiy. It is called an abomimination in Leviticus 18:22. That the sin of Sodom was homosexuality is clear from Jude vs. 7 “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities around about them in like manner, giving thermselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” The word fornication is translated from the Greek word porneia which means illicit sexual intercourse. The following scriptures show that homosexuality is sinful (illicit). Romans 1:21-32, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, 1 Timothy 1:9-10, and again Jude vs. 7. Obviously then, fornication includes homosexuality. Please be careful how you interpret any scripture, especially when it pertains to our salvation or something as vital to society as human sexuality. There are RULES we must follow when it comes to interpreting the Bible. One of those rules is that a scripture must be interprteted in the light of every other scripture that relates to the same subject. Please be careful the way you interpret any scriture especially when it touches on our salvation or something as vital to our existance and wellbeing as human sexuality. In his day the Apostle Paul wrote about those who were “…handling the Word of God deceitfully…” in 2 Corinthians 4:2. This s a serious matter. Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Pentecostal Evangelist.

      *sigh* For Christ’s sake. The word “homosexuality” did not EXIST then. It is an ENGLISH word. The bible was written in Hebrew and Greek. CLEARLY the word “ABOMINATION” refers to acts such as what we call homosexuality. Nice try. Stop trying to make God a liar. You know full well it’s a sin. And as far as information abounding, and faithful people being “stupid” truth is unchangeable and unchanging. You calling us stupid is a complement. Good luck to you.

      U are so right.

    • August 6, 2013

      % You are right. All these things are bad, and may be sinful. Informed well intentioned people do not support any of them.

      The Apostle Paul spoke by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit in exceptional terms about homosexuality. He said it was “…against nature” in Romans 1:26.

      The New Testament forbids homosexual behavior along with other serious sins in Romans 1:21-32, 1 Corinthians 6:9,10, 1 Timothy 1:9,10, and Jude vs.7.

      The Christian church for 2,000 years has taught that homosexuality is a sin.

      For hundreds of years nations with a Christian heritage have have laws against homosexuality.

      Homosexuality is an unhealthy lifestyle with more AIDS and mental health issues, a higher rate of alcholism, more suicides, and a shorter life span than we see among heterosexuals.

      Because the gay lobby is pushing to have it decrimalized and have same sex marriages legalized and get adoption rights, because of the way it is being celebrated – for example in gay pride parades – it has become necessary for the church and other organizations devoted to traditional morality and family values to respond.

      It was never our desire to focus on homosexuality. We didn’t want to make it a priority. Believe me, we have enough work to do. Living Hope Ministries (my own organization) is an international evangelistic/Bible teaching ministry with a missions emphasis working now in a number of countries. It was the homosexual activists pushing for “equal rights” that drew us into the arena. We are mandated to respond to whatever need is current and pressing.

      The other sins are not organized and asking for “equal rights”. People who commit fornication and adultery, people who sell or purchase passports illegaly, people who (God forbid) cheat on their taxes, have enough sense to know they are doing wrong! In fact they try to hide these sins. They are not trying to have the laws forbidding their activiies recinded. They are not telling us what they do is O.K. for them because they were born that way. They are not having parades to celebrate their wrong doings. They are not recruiting.

      A few weeks ago a nine year old boy came home from a school in Ontario, Canada and told his parents “Today we learned all about being gay. The teacher told us how to come out.”

      A fourteen year old girl came home came home from an Ontario school and told her parents “Today we learned how gays do it and how lesbians do it. They showed us how to put a condom on a banana.”

      This is what deciminalization and legalization is doing in Canada and it is getting worse by the month. Schools in Ontario are being forced to have a club called the “Gay – Straight Alliance” dedicated to helping students accept the gay lifestyle as a healthy and normal alternative. In their health classes and in physical education classes homosexuality is being taught using every imaginable visual aid. Private schools and even the best Catholic schools are being forced to accept this.

      We lost the battle in Canada partly because we didn’t organize, speak, and act soon enough, and partly because of a former Roman Catholic PM with socialist leanings who said “Big brother has no place in the bedrooms of the nation” and decriminalized homosexality. We have not given up the fight in Canada but progress is difficult and slow.

      As a Christian who loves the Caribbean (I’ve made six trips and stayed as long as sixteen weeks on a trip) I don’t want this to happen in Dominica. Nor do the vast majority of Dominicans at this time.

      It is not too late for your beautiful island. Begin by praying. If you are in the Spirit filled life you will know what I mean when I say “Do spiritual warfare!” Find out where your political candidates stand on moral issues. Let there be no hidden agenda. Get it out in the open. You have a responsibility to know if a candidate will honor God. Vote for those who stand for righteousness.

      God bless Dominica!

However, I believe that no one should come in our country and try to dictate to us how we should govern our country. No one should pressure us into anything we don’t believe is right. A lot of adults on here don’t have a problem with what these persons do in the privacy of their home, however, they are concerned about what their children could be exposed to. The young children in Dominica are so vulnerable and easily influenced we have to protect them always. I mean, just look at what happened last year with the guys on the boat, it was early morning, people heading to work, going to drop their kids at school and look at what they were exposed to. Let me tell you my dear, Dominica is a conservative God-fearing country and this is something we should always protect. Our children should remain innocent until they are old enough to understand what’s going on in the world and not be subjected to behavior that is so unbecoming.

I remember the allegations as clear as day. It wasn’t just to my school but through out others the secrets, lies and the manipulation of these kids to keep quiet is astounding.

I live in the US and contrary to the assertations made by many of you with non-factual claims, gays don’t get their way just so in the US! Every state handles their issues as they deem it appropriate, and when they are told no, they wrap their tails in their backsides( no pun intended) and go on yapping their merry way. America is a civilised society or rational thinkers. When you give these people an arm they want a foot, that is why they are meeting with so much resistance. They start under the guise of one thing and want to change all laws just to force people to yield to them. You and your gays need to learn that like them everyone else have their rights. By the way except for a few ignorant bastards who harm these people, gays are pretty much at liberty to what they want, go where they want, and work and live where they want. What they want is to have no rules whatsover apply to them. What kind of society would that be? These peoples’ culture is all about pushing the envelope and that is all they do. Funny you mention Jews and Gays as in the same sentence as if it were a seperate entity. It would do you well to follow their path of origin and see why they are one and the same. By the way what is wrong with Mel Gibson? What did they do to him? Listen to propoganda and repeat it and pretend to be informed. The laws will not be repealed!

      They wanted to extend their benefits to their live in partners, well I see nothing wrong with that, If I work I should be able to leave my money and benefits to whomever I like. However they’re generally anti-religion but calling their come-together a Civil Union is not enough for them, they want to call it Marriage. Why does the term have to change to accomodate them?

    According to Skerritt, his Govt.’s position on the matter of Buggery is stated in Law and it is still on the books. True.

    What has been and still is your Gov.t’s position on corruption, on firebombing, on fraud, on kick-backs, on Bin and Fertilizer Bobols, all stated in Law? Actions speak louder than words?

    What about all those criminal actions against our laws and Constitution, especially by those in high places? All also illegal actions against the laws on the books.

    The real issues plaguing Dominica is the Corruption, Bad Governance, greed, selfishness, support for wrong doings. The real problems are the neglect of Agriculture and deepening of our food insecurity.

    The political influencies and seeming control of our institutions, mandated by Law, to play their role independently – Police, Courts, IPO, Electoral Commission, just name them, are plain to see.

    First let me make it clear that I am a Christian, therefore I do not condone homosexuality, but I am of the opinion that sin is sin. I appears to me that Dominicans willingly accept adultery but when it comes to homosexuality the world going to end. Dominicans only quote the bible when it is convenient to support their point of view. Let us start with those men, including those in power, who have children here there and everywhere. There should be a law on the books against fornication. The point I am making is that the sin of fornication or adultery is no different from that of homosexuality. For all those quoting the Bible, here is what it says, “love the homosexual, but hate the act of homosexuality. Dominicans need to get back to serving God. All that partying on Sundays while the churches are empty is the problem.

      May 27, 2013

      AGREE 100% I don’t support homosexuality, but Dominicans are too hyprocrite and wicked, the bible called both homosexuality and adultery ABOMINATION, and he ain’t a fan of fornication neither. People just want to be bullies simple as that.

    • May 27, 2013

      Huh?

    • May 27, 2013

      I think they are trying to tackle one problem here which is ‘HOMOSEXUALITY’. let’s leave fornication for another time. If we have to add fornication to the topic at hand then some other topics will arise and it will never end. There are LOTS to discuss but just concentrate on HOMOSEXUALITY for the moment

      May 27, 2013

      Yes all sin is sin but remember the sin of homosexuality is mentioned by God as an abomination, that should tell you how much he detest it. I’m not in no way condoning the others. Adultery and fornication does not leave the natural use of men and women, it’s between a man and a woman, nevertheless it is still wrong!

      • BE FAIR!!
        May 29, 2013

        @PS why don’t you read the entire Bible before acting like you SO holy, god called Adultery an abomination as well and called it punishable by death AS WELL, he also called “creating discord among brethren” an abomination and the WORST sin of all, so your point IS???

    • May 27, 2013

      Neutral, while God hates all sins, I don’t see other sinners crying for special privileges and rights. I don’t see fornicators, adulterers etc. forming groups against churches and governments to legalize and accept their sins. Homos/lesbes are the ones who make noise, who form all kinds of groups to have their SINS accepted as normal. If they CHOOSE to sin, then it is between them and Daddy God, but when they push to have it legalized and accepted that is another story. This is the core issue here- the push for special recognition and privilege for a man to be riding another man from behind and for a woman to have another woman’s head in her kookoolooks.

      May 27, 2013

      I agree with you that sin is sin, but even people who fornicate, like me and many others, believes and accept that it is wrong, but the homosexuals wants us to accept that that nothing is wrong with that lifestyle and I will not accept that. I don’t hate gay people, but I don’t believe that we should legally accept that practice. Whether it should be punishable however, I will not be judge on that – I will leave that up to the Creator.

    Good afternoon sweet Dominica. Well am very surprise of the Prime Ministers statement. Now there is a law which forbids this type of sexual activity but Mr Skeritt is saying that one can engage in any activity in the privacy of their home. Well based on what he said in this article it appears to me that this law forbids this behavior in public or perhaps he doesn’t know the law. This issue is already a public affairs issue therefore someone should submit an amendment to repeal this law and if the Prime Minister disagree then he can vote the amendment because he is denying some of our citizens their basic human right based on their sexual orientation. I am not a gay person but I believe that if two adults want to engage in any sexual act in the privacy of their home then its not my business to judge their conduct. I know many of you will give me thumbs down but I feel am standing up for an unpopular issue for some of our citizens who deserve equal rights. Thanks in advance.

    • May 27, 2013

    It’s a National Health issue and Mr. Skeritt has to maintain it for Dominica as such, other wise these determined people will get their way, and taint our health system. That’s a waste of their collective intellectual might, which is what they trying to throw around.

    How about the minority who are occult and drink blood, is miridom going to fight for them too in their narrow self centered gay rights fight? The Caribs are doing a fantastic job on their own with the name-change/recognition issue. Marijuana advocates need not be thrown in with the gay legalization and anti-buggery drive of miridom. Their esoteric narrow-minded fight is to make it legal to buggar and taint our health system that needs help as it is already.

    Since they want to bunch Marijuana users and Caribs in their fight for legalized buggery, are they at the same time going to fight for local members of the men-boy-love assoc (mbla) that strives to strick down laws to lower the age of consent of young boys from 18 to 14 years of age, so peodifiles can take advantage of our tender juicy young boys?

So wat other minority group are they going to lobby for rights for? These ppl have their agenda, and they figure leaving communally in houses all over the place and hving parties and orgies every wkend is not enough, so now they want to take it to the open, soon they will want to get married, adopt children etc,…Homosexuals in DA are not discriminated against, they work, own businesses, hve long and short term relationships, serve in churches, schools are free to roam the streets, etc, everybody know who they are, so wat else do u want?

    Way to go Mr. Prime Minister! That is exactly what I believe also. Sex and all its lustful demonstrations are made to be performed behind closed doors and under the covers–regardless of it was done between the most saintly man and wife–much more for man and man or woman and woman.

    Those people must understand that they should remain in private with their sinful and shameful behavior–no one will trouble them–I just don’t want that behavior flaunted in my face.

    They are not asking for “special rights” they want “respect” as “human beings” What is human in conduct of sex in all its forms between two, or among three, and four men. What kind of respect do they expect to receive from people? Respect is not granted, it must be earned!

      You like to talk too much about things you do not know, nobody ever saw me write or use any profanity on DNO, now if you want to tell people that I cursed you out in some personal communication between you and I, there may not be any denial!

      However you need to let the world know that you claimed to be my friend, yet you supported an idiot who read something I wrote on DNO in the context of strokes; this idiot said I plagiarized my information, and you, this great Christian, supported him/her by saying: ” Amen Right On!”

      Did you ever thought I was going to take that lightly.

      Any information regarding medicine, and diseases I communicated here is what I learnt in school, as an Health Science Major, you in particular have absolutely no knowledge of what I spoke about, you have not taken a single days class in health science, so why run your mouth off no someone when you have no knowledge of what the person is talking about?

      When I was in your house in Toronto, overwhelming you with medical information, did you see me pull the information out of a book, or went on your computer and goggle any information for you, what did you tell me?

      Didn’t you suggest we stop talking about medicine, and a condition we know a certain person has. I will not say the persons name, but I suggest you stop haunting me, I thought I got rid of you when I did not respond to your last mail yesterday,

        Heheheheheeheheheheheehehehehehe! That is to tell you that I chose to give your thumbs up for that piece of nonsense which you wrote here. That is how much I pity you, knowing how much you are dying for attention, you see!

        But why me. The person who wrote that post called you FET, is that no what all your friends call you. I have the feeling that person knows long before I ever knew you existed–I even think I know who that person is; so why me?

        Also, I claimed to be your friend when I did not know anything about you, if I had only stayed on DNO for a little while longer, to get to know your mentality, there would be no way you would be saying that I claimed to be your friend to the audience here–you know very well that we have not been friends since the late 2011, when you started to speak to me with insults for one reason or the other–you have simple been unfair!

        And yes again! You did plagiarize, you cannot write one paragraph from your head, without writing three, four, five and how many words for other words–just like you did here yesterday–how could you write that long thing about “strokes” from your memory without making that same mistake and maybe much more

        “When I was in your house in Toronto, overwhelming you with medical information, did you see me pull the information out of a book, or went on your computer and goggle any information for you, what did you tell me”.—-Francisco

        What is the reason for all of this above? Besides, it is all made up again; when you are not plagiarizing you are lying–what is it with you. But is it that I am such a special person that you want the whole audience of the Internet to know that you were at my house?

        Well I wish I could take back that 4 hours which you spent here, but I am telling the world right now that you are not welcome in my home–not ever again; I made a dreadful mistake to treat as a person and it will be over my dead body if you should set foot in my house ever again okay!

      In any event punishment comes in many different forms, whereas a volcano may not erupt and destroy many here; we experienced the advent of aids, which took the life’s of many thousands of people in the United States.

      We experienced what should be a minor earth tremor caused plenty of damage in the bay area of San Francisco. There we say a double Decker Bridge crumbled, falling on cars tossing them into the water, thus killing many people, man women and children.

      We saw between 2008, and 2011, the entire economy of the United States came the brink of collapsed, we see disaster after disaster in the United States, in which hundreds of people loose their life.

      Do we know the reasons why; could it be because of some sort of punishment?

      Do we remember what took place in Louisiana a few short years ago, after the hurricane, where we saw dead decaying bodies floating in stagnant water for months, what about the devastation of New Jersey, and New York, a few short months ago.

      Could there be a cause for all of this; could it be that we are punished for all the bad things taking place, I mean such as homosexual marriage, and governmental official condoning marriage between man and man, and woman and woman?

      The troubling thing about it is that; whereas everyone may not be God fearing, even if they read the Bible their contention is that, God made them the way they are, and then they go on talking about love. Ask one of those people to account for what took place in Sodom, and Gomorrah, they avoid that conversation, and start talking about race, hate and discrimination.

      Racism, hate and discrimination has nothing to do with it when the principle of the matter is based on the word of God?

      I do not care how many so called preacher, reverend, priest, bishop, or pope presidents, or whoever condones homosexuality, and homosexual acts, it is my duty to acknowledge the word of God in reference to what the Bible has to say about homosexual conduct.

      The Bible is very clear, and condemns it as ” unnatural sex” it is in the Bible as plain as I wrote it here; so there is nothing any preacher or any organization can come forward with to justify the act of homosexuality, to make it right, and acceptable.

      Mr. Skerrit is correct, right on target, if man and man want to engage in the brutality of their body in their home, or under a rock where they can’t be seen that is a matter for them, and their god; however, when they get into the streets with their conduct, that is a matter that must be dealt with by the law.

    I am not clear about the exact verbatim of the law, but with it on the books, what does it really mean? No buggery, is it just between men, what about heterosexual couples who choose to engage in these types of sexual activity? Does it take into account gay female couples? Whether or not the law is on the books, people will still engage in what ever sexual acts they please–in the privacy of their homes. I think a lot of people believe that if the laws are repealed, there will be an outburst of gay sexual activity in the public. For all intents and purposes, this is not what is going to happen. There are laws against that already—engaging in sexual activity in public and this applies to all persons regardless of sexual orientation. In essence, the law on the books serve no real purpose. If the law is not even being repealed, i guess the topic of gay marriage in this country is out of the question. We still have a long way to go as a nation. I respect people for who they are-regardless of their sexual orientation, I understand that some people are different from me, and the same rights I want for myself, I think all other should have.

    Mr. Skerrit boy, I stand with you one hundred (100%) percent behind this one since I am convinced that the act of homosexuality, is an immoral act, and not only an immoral act, it also an unsanitary act!

    Besides it is an abomination to the Lord Jehovah. Homosexuality destroys nations. We say God caused the destruction of the ancient cities of Sodom, and Gomorrah.

    History taught us while ancient Rome was burning, the leader of Rome, Nero was involved in an homosexual orgy! He built a palace, designated only for the use of homosexuals and lesbians encounters.

    Popeye was also a very vile city, overwhelm with homosexuals, and lesbians, that city was also destroyed by the eruption of a volcano, which killed all the homosexual who dwelt within.

    If the buggery laws were repealed, our country would become a heaven for the worlds homosexuals, we had a taste of what would happen when they came by the thousands to our country on a boat lasts year, and with any regards or respect for the laws of our land, they engaged in their homosexual acts in broad daylight where people were forced to witness their visible action.

    Our history will not judge you for being frank about, by saying the law will not be repealed.

    Great work, Me Almost Nearly Cousin.

    If people wish to engage themselves into homosexuality, that is their personal business, between them and whichever god they serve, however in the event such laws were to be repealed that would simple be like handing a license to people to engage in such acts even in churches in our country.

    We can’t have that!

        Is not Popeye, it is actually “Pompeii” an ancient city in I believe South Italy, South East of Naples .

        That city was destroyed A.D. 79 by the eruption on Mt. Vesuvius

        But anyway I hope you had a good laugh.

        I can see why it is funny to you, because this has nothing to do with wrong spelling “Popeye” is not spelt wrong.

        Popeye it is the Franchise name for the “fried chicken” restaurant chains all the over the place–this practice of using one word for another is a habit of that man, everywhere he writes; along with all his other flaws. I could mention a long list of words which he writes in place of another–he never spells anything wrong.

        And yet he does not know or refuse to acknowledge al the wrongs about himself–but nobody knows how to label other people as fools, idiots, stupid like he does, not to mention the profane words which he is able to spew at people–I can understand why you are laughing, who wouldn’t when they know what Popeye is.

    I am not clear about the exact verbatim of the law, but with it on the books, what does it really mean? No buggery, it it just between men, what about couples who choose to engage in these types of sexual activity? Does it take that into account gay female couples? Whether or not the law is on the books, people will still engage in what ever sexual acts they please–in the privacy of their homes. I think a lot of people believe that if the laws are repealed, there will be an outburst of gay sexual activity in the public. For all intents and purposes, this is not what is going to happen. There are laws against that already—engaging in sexual activity in public and this applies to all persons regardless of sexual orientation. In essence, the law on the books serve no real purpose. If the law is not even being repealed, i guess the topic of gay marriage in this country is out of the question. We still have a long way to go as a nation. I respect people for who they are-regardless of their sexual orientation, I understand that some people are different from me, and the same rights I want for myself, I think all other should have.

In summary he remarks says: you can in the privacy of your home if you want to but he will not repeal the laws. Buggery in the privacy of your own home is a crime sir, according to the laws. Are you telling people to engage in it only in their privacy of their home? How does this square up with the laws.

      So whereas the law is created for a deterrent, people still kill.

    Racism and homophobia are two evil discriminations that have plagued the human race for almost as long as societies existed. what is the reason for not abolishing the anti-buggery laws, god? If you are an educated person it would be clear that the god of the bible never condemned buggery in particular but sin in general. What is the reason then for placing so much useless energy and hate on gays? In all reasonableness, why not have an anti-adultery law or sex-outside-of-marriage law, which are equally condemnable actions by the biblical standard? This is just sentimental arguments and not reasonable, well-thought through conclusions. I think the same way we don’t worry with, nor do we have laws against, sex-outside-of-marriage actions, e.g., that same regard, or should I say preferential hypocrisy, should be given to gays. The PM here is making a political statement to add more point to his popularity to people who already share, passionately, this nonsencial position which is not a logical one.

      May 27, 2013

      8-O “In all reasonableness,” Really!!??? BTW which Bible you reading again? The Holy Bible does condemn homosexuality not just sin in general.

      Clearly, it is because they are “making alot of noise.”

      Persons who are fornicating and committing adultery and having sex outside of marriage etc. are not pushing for rights and “picketing” and the reason … get this- they know what they are doing is wrong.

      Got it?

    • May 27, 2013

      This is not racism. I do not study the Bible, but all this was happening in the Old Testament, and that is why the New Testament was written to rid of all that was UNCLEAN. You are right though, there should be a law on ADULTERY. Common sense would tell someone that the RECTUM is not a sexual tool.

      Just for argument sake, will they eventually use the nostril or the ear? What name would they call it?

    If ever that PM make that mistake to repeal this Buggery law; then absolutely NO GOATS WILL BE SAFE IN LOUBIERE ( especially Fond Baron area ). It will be interesting to find out how many goats and other animals that have been”legally” beastialised.

    I do believe that persons who involved them selves with same sex intercourse is in need of psychiatric evaluation; the same is applicable to incest and other forms of sexual molestations etc.

    We have to protect our young people. Too much sick people are out there. The church is silent about such things and even when some of us speak, some of the spokes-persons are themselves fully involved in such sexual deviant behavors and are hence dangers to their own developing families, young people and even themselves.
    Our country is in need of serious prayers. God gave man and woman to this world. It is in genesis you know.

    Mr. PM I am with you this time because a man should only find sexual pleasure in a woman. That’s why God called them Adam and Eve. Having said that, I do believe that gays/ homosexuals should not be discriminated against even if their behavior and practice is devilish and worse than animalish. At the end of the day God is the judge and His judgement against homosexuals will not be harsher than fornicators or murderers. However PM, it was an easy call for you as you know very well that a good 98% of voters in Dominica are against homosexuality, whether they are red, green, blue, or yellow, and we all know that your decisions are never based on integrity and honesty, but rather on the way the political wind is blowing.

    • August 6, 2013

      Don’t judge people for their sexuality? :oops:

      Don’t judge those who commit fornication, adultery, rape, incest, or beastility? :?:

      The Bible forbids certain sexual acts. He is not picking on homosexuals. Many sexual acts between men and women are also forbidden.

      Homosexuals are asking for “equal” rights. Homsexuals already have the same “rights” as heterosxuals. All human beings have the “right” to marry somebody of the opposite gender! In my country everybody has the “right” to walk down the street or through a park holding hands with somebody of the opposite gender. I expect it is the same in Dominica. :lol:

      Dominica has laws that forbids homosexuality because it is contrary to the model God gave us for marriage. Unfortunately some countries are repealing these laws and legalizing same sex marriage. Already this is creating problems. In Canada there are people now asking for polygamous marriages to be made legal. There are also those who want pedophillia declared an “orientation”. Why? Because psychologists and psychiatrists are saying it (in many cases) cannot be cured, and pedophiles are claiming they were “born that way”! Sound familar? We already have laws that say a person cannot be discriminated against because of his or her sexual “orientation” so once pedophillia is made an “orientation” :twisted: whoopee!

      The laws that forbid the public expression of homosexuality stops homosexuals from sending our young generation the wrong message if it is enforced. Even something as “harmless” as the public holding of hands between two people of the same gender sends a wrong message to the younger generation. We do not want our children being led to believe that same sex relationships are a normal and acceptable alternative to the beautiful love that can exist between a man and woman :-P :-D and should find its full expression only in marriage.

      These laws are also necessary tools for the police to use to prosecute gay men who would come in to your shores on a cruise ship and give a free sex show by buggering each other in front of a crowd of men, women, and children. If laws are needed to prevent certain types of people from openly displaying their depravity so be it. :twisted:

      Yes, it is necessary to judge sexual behavior. Because this is 2013 does not mean we want to lose our civilization. Yes, God loves everybody, muderers and all! But those who reject that love and refuse to turn from their sins and receive Christ will be forever lost.

    • May 27, 2013

      Dominicans are not hypocrites. When we go to other people’s coutries to visit we see gay people, we do not accept it. We do not think gay is only for one country. Dominica is special, GAY is everywhere, but we DO NOT WANT IT INTO OUR LAW. Of course, there has been homosexuals in Dominica for as long as I can remember; however, it was not as public as today. I am sure there has been an increase. If Dominicans accept Gays that would make them moving forward in your opinion? I think every man going after their children should be PUNISHED. Men and women living together and having kids is not okay, but there is a DIFFERENCE. They use a PENIS and a VAGINA. Being gay is not only a sin, it is DISGUST. There may not be a big sin and a small sin, but I think each carry a different level of punishment. True, some of you sleep with so many different partners, that is also a shame. England and America will NOT stop helping Dominica because Dominica do not accept gay rights, on the contrary Dominica might prosper. I hope you are referring to YOURSELF as the STUPID, BACKWARD ARSE thinking Dominican, because I am not as described. Is England and America the world? We are not small minded, and we are moving on with the world. These people do not bother me either. They are living their lives as they see fit, me too. No one is judging them. There is simply NO SPACE in the book of laws to INCLUDE one for that behavior. There are more important LAWS to be written, such as ADULTERY and INCEST.

      Why do you think they want their behavior recognized if they did not want to display it publicly?

      Really…and the first thing they had to come up with is homosexuality and the buggery laws, they should hve just come out and say wat they really are an LGBT-Dominica chapter….Tell me what other minorities with have in Dominica that at being discriminated against. the Kalinago people…they have their council to speak for them, the Rastas…they are more accepted now than every before an they have their hose of Nayabinghi to fight their cause, Disabled, same here, short/tall ppl…in DA not a problem, too black or to red or coloured, not a problem! So wat other minority group are they going to lobby for rights for? These ppl have their agenda, and they figure leaving communally in houses all over the place and hving parties and orgies every wkend is not enough, so now they want to take it to the open…Well PM i support u and my Church hold strong and when u ready to demonstrate against this abomination…we will be there!

    Mr. P.M. I agree with you. What they do in the privacy of their home is their business. Police not harassing them? Are they? The groups ultimate aim I guess would be to legalisation of same sex unions. Apres Bon Dieu C’est La Terre is on our National Coat of Arms, God forbid, if we repeal this we may as well repeal a few other laws. There’s no need for that law to be repealed.

    Indecent exposure and lewd behaviour legislation are sufficient for the protection of society. It’s not government’s place to dictate which acts consenting adults can perform.

      if thats your argument then government cant tell people what grass to smoke either , So marijuana should be legalized , then they wont be able to tell people what powder to inhale too , i think you smart enough to get the point, try a next argument

      All consenting acts are noted in the Bible.. The directives for our lives and to know what is sin and what we should not do. Although we are all sinners, yet we need the Fathers “Holy Spirit” guidance to lead us in all truth. The Enemy of our souls wants to destroy all of us so this is why things that are destructive are made to look nice so we can be destroyed. At the end we should love one another but let us hate “iniquity or sin”. So if we love one another, we should let them know but not compromise by liking or loving the abominable actions. My take on this!

    .“The point is, it could be buggery today, tomorrow it will be incest and what other law they will want the government to repeal?” …..They are only talking about repealing buggery …don’t add anything else to it…that is illogical thinking…

      It’s not illogical at all. There’s a thing called “precedent.” Nothing happens in a vacuum.

    I whole heartedly support the Prime Minister of Dominica although I am Saint Lucia. I think that our Caribbean Parliaments should adopt a similar position, for the next thing they will push for is incest and other nasty vices to be made legal.

    We have our integrity to protect for as Nasio Fontaine did sing, ‘it was Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.’

      PM Skerrit is an example for every politician in the Caribbean and beyond. Dominica is a model to the island nations of the Caribbean. The USA, the UK, and the UN are using everything from verbal slurrs to financial bribery in an effort to bully smaller nations into accepting homosexuality. You have shown your sister nations it is possible to stand up to and push back those who lack the manners to mind their own business and not interfere in the affairs of sovereign self governing nations. They may have thought because Dominica was small it would buckle. Let them lick their wounds! Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Pentecotal Evangelist.

    Thank God Skeritt has his priorities straight. Just because this wave of populist ideas is overtaking the Western world doesn’t mean that Dominica needs to be a part of it. People are already free to do what they want in the privacy of their own homes. THe law exists for a reason – the activity is offensive to God. It is imperative that Dominica keeps its Christian roots strong and not be moved by pressure from popular agendas that seek to contradict Truth. THe penalty is immeasurably high.

      having kids out of wedlock and sleeping with married people is offensive to god yet it’s rampant activities in Dominica. You all have no shame to disregard god in other ways yet you all will continue to look down on others as you so better.

        It’s not about comparing one sin to another. Sin is sin. It’s not about one sin being more acceptable to another. Divorce and adultery were also unlawful back in the day but we have a tendency as humans to deny truths that are inconvenient. Just because some sins seem to have become acceptable doesn’t mean that other sin(s) should be glorified and treated as “normal” or acceptable. One has nothing to do with the other. And you don’t know me or what path I’ve walked so don’t make assumptions.

        Oh my goodness – thank you. Thank you for pointing out the hypocrisy of Dominicans. Everyone will focus on buggery (which is a private matter between two people) but fail to focus on fornication, incest, adultery, jealousy, and all the other sins. Hypocrites! The law is not repealed YET but it will be. WHAT HAPPENS IN THE PRIVACY OF A PERSON’S BEDROOM IS THERE BUSINESS. BUGGERY IS ALIVE AND WELL IN DOMINICA. MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT. HYPOCRITES!

      Are you saying that the law – and by extension our constitution – exists to punish those who offend God?

      • Ivry Blue
        May 27, 2013

        Laws exist in part to punish offenses against God, yes. They also exist to discourage conduct that is offensive to God and destructive to society. We have several examples of the consequences to be suffered when a society chooses to defy God and defer to our own ideas and feelings.

      Your argument is flawed from the get-go. No one is looking to glorify buggery. But the same way adultery WAS illegal, maybe it’s time for buggery to take the same route.

      I’m not gay, but fair is fair, and that’s what many people aren’t willing to accept. If you were advocating for the criminalizing of adultery and fornication then you and I would be on the same side.

      • Ivry Blue
        May 27, 2013

        My argument is not flawed. Having a parade to CELEBRATE the gay lifestyle qualifies as glorification to me. Obviously repealing the law to make such a thing acceptable in the society will open the floodgates for such celebrations. I don’t have a problem with criminalizing adultery and divorce. What I said is that you can’t use those sins (or any other) as a basis for acceptance for this one. Anyway, that is not what this conversation was about. Life isn’t fair. We are not promised that we will have whatever we think we should have, even when we KNOW it is against the will of God. There is no integrity in justifying a wrong with a wrong. Nothing good can come of that.
