Dominica to address gay rights before UN

gay men holding handsDominica has to make its position clear to the United Nations concerning the rights of gays and lesbians on the island at the Universal Periodic Review 2014 to be held in Geneva on May 1.

Local minority group MiriDom, in conjunction with the Sexual Rights Initiative, has written to the UN Commission for Human Rights on the matter and the island’s permanent representative to the UN, Vince Henderson, is expected to make a presentation on Dominica’s position.

In its submission to the UN, MiriDom called for the island’s buggery laws to be repealed.

“MiriDom feels no law or constitution should be allowed to discriminate against someone based on their sexual orientation,” the organization said. “The anti sodomy laws of Dominica are discriminatory towards the sexual expressions of consenting adults, therefore we feel they should be repealed.”

According to the organization, such laws “fuel stigma and discrimination towards a minority in our society.”

It noted that the laws give the court the leeway to have homosexuals analyzed by a psychiatrist, noting this “is against human rights.”

The Universal Periodic Review is held every four years during which organizations or individuals of UN member countries are given an opportunity to present to the UN Commission on Human Rights a report on human rights that concerns them.

Henderson is expected to give Dominica's position on gay rights at the meeting in Geneva

The report is then given a hearing in Geneva attended by UN ambassadors who may question the relevant ambassador. This is when Henderson is expected to give the position of the government of Dominica.

Speaking to DNO on Monday, Henderson said there are a number of questions that he has to respond to when the meeting convenes in Geneva but said he cannot give any information since the government has to approve the text of his presentation.

“Once it is done, it will be made public,” he stated. “But at this point I cannot comment on anything of that nature.”

He did say, however, issues concerning violence against women, violence against children, the death penalty are on the agenda but the Miridom matter seems “to be the most controversial one for some people.”

Last year prime minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, said buggery laws on the books in Dominica will not be repealed pointing out that he has not heard any ‘compelling’ argument to support such move.

    Does the UN give Dominica money :?:

    Has or does the UN or any of its member nations helped Dominic in any way :?:

    Perhaps so. But is there a price tag attached? If so history may someday reveal that the price was too high.

    Sometimes a neighbor helps me. Sometimes I help a neighbor. But we would never think of interfering
    in each others family affairs. I would not tell him how to run his household nor he me. If the UN or any of its member nations is using any “help” it gives to another nation as leverage to gain control of that country it would be better to refuse their help.

    If a nation buckles to the UN or any of their member nations and allows them to push their gay agenda upon them for financial or material gain, or political advantage, they are betraying their own people, and selling out future generations.

    Dominica does not owe the UN an explanation of its position on same sex relationships. Your position is based solidly upon the Word of God. It is the Word I preach and I am able to defend it without apology or compromise.

    Like the three young Hebrew men in the Book of Daniel I will burn but I will not bow.

    As many words I have stated on this matter, it continues to shock me that these people interfere in the Laws of Dominica and went so far as to write to the UN. You will have to prove that you are discriminated against and denied rights as a human being, a national.
    Dominica is a Christian country. I never expected that I would hear this sort of thing happening in Dominica and that these people want rights. This occurs when people turn their backs on God and cease practicing the faith. He has left you to your evil devices and into the hands of Satan.
    What right do they have to interfere in D/ca’s Law and their business? No one is discrimination against you. The government has not jailed you and may never do so as long as you obey the Laws of the land.
    What is so exciting about wanting homosexual rights? It is sickening to think of it. I foresee an uprising in D/ca should this scandalous affairs ever get legislated.
    What do you want? You want a license to hold hands and kiss in public? You are two men (and two women). You have no right to get married. Keep your affairs to yourself behind your closed doors and leave other Dominicans alone. You should be ashamed of yourselves. Never expect that they will approve of your intrinsic behaviour, at least the sincere practicing Christians.
    I do believe that if this shameful lifestyle is ever legalized, it will not sit too well with D/cans who oppose it. There are some who, at this moment are keeping quiet about it and taking a wait and see stand. There will be trouble for you. You should know what I mean.
    When you come out of the closet, I think one by one, you may be eradicated from the face of the earth. Who is going to protect you in D/ca? The UN and that homosexual group, your counterparts? The government and police cannot be everywhere.
    I do think you should fear the repercussion. You will be in serious trouble. You better keep your homosexual affairs behind closed doors.
    I hope my words are prophetic. This is my vision of what may happen to you in the future for, putting it mildly you are annoying people with your evil behaviour and want recognition for your abnormal lifestyle.
    These people want the entire world to approve of this abomination. I have said, when the entire world legislates this abomination, God will rain down his fire and brimstone on the earth and destroy those evildoers. They will cause Our Lord to quicken the day of wrath.

    Whoever represents Dominica at the UN, ensure that you have compiled a good case/response. You should give the UN a good piece of your mind. They are all godless people who do not care two hoots about Christianity but promoting and encouraging abomination in the world..
    There are times I do not believe in practicing diplomacy but telling it like it is.
    Dominica is not depriving those homosexuals who continue to hide behind closed doors and have yet to show their faces in public. They are hiding behind closed doors to get a group to perform their dirty work. Cowards! I hope you never get your way.
    You are godless people who care not if God would instantly punish you and those who approve of your evil lifestyle which does nobody any good; not even yourselves.
    You do not care if you go to Hell for practicing this abomination which highly offend Our Lord Jesus Christ who will judge you based on your lifestyle. He is not going to say to you, “Well done my good and faithful servant. Come ye blessed of My Father, possess ye the Kingdom…” On the contrary, He will say, “Amen, amen I do not know you. Depart from Me ye cursed into everlasting fire.”
    It is not judging you but telling you like it is that if you keep up this lifestyle, this is where you will end up with the enemy of God and of our souls, Satan, Lucifer, the devil, the dragon.
    It is a serious matter. It appears for the number of homosexuals there are in the world, there will be many of them keeping you company except there will be endless suffering. For the good of your soul, you are warned.

    so u to telling me that an organisation misiDom has actually gone to the united nations in protest for an abomination on our dear island.

    it not like they are not already committing the act of sodomy on our dear island.

    what are these people actually trying to achieve?

    i think the UN should accommodate them in one of the American or European countries. so that they can be Happy. Its obvious that they are not Happy enough in Dominica.

    No news here, the ambass announced that since last year. He even said the UN will tie aid to gay legalization. He has his own agenda, loud and clear. I just knew he would try that.

    I am trying to understand why an independent, sovereign, self governing nation should have to report to the UN its position on the rights of gays and lesbians. Surely this information is available in written form for those who wish to research it. But no! The UN wants an official from Dominica to appear in the flesh at the Universal Periotic Review on May 1, to give a verbal report so they can challenge it, and rail on Dominica for its perceived intolerance.

    They are trying to push the gay agenda on sovereign nations. They would also like you to legalize marijuana, abortion, and prostitution, along with same sex marriage because to the UN these are civil rights. To push permissive policies on independent, sovereign, self governing nations they show a total lack of protocol and good manners. The US and UK will be there like two bullies in a school yard hoping the UN will provide them with the tools they need to further force gay rights on small nations.

    Yet both the UK and the US are cowards. Even with their size they do not have the spine to stand up to China and face off with them over their family size policy that limits the number of daughters each their families can have. This is their greatest and most bloody violation of civil rights. But he UK and US are strangely silent when it comes to the mass murder of (unborn and born) baby girls in China! The UN even put China on its Security Council!

    The UK and the US have already shown their true nature. Cameron said he would withhold financial assistance to nations that did not move ahead with gay rights. Obama said he would finance gay rights lobby organizations in such countries. It is obvious any help you receive from the UK or the US may come with a price. They want to have a voice in the governance of your nation and if you give them a foot they will take a mile.

    Mr. Henderson is a capable man. He is going with the trust and confidence of his government. I expect he will make it clear that the position of Dominica on gay and lesbian rights is not open for negotiation. He will be there to present the policy, not to defend it. It needs no defence.

      April 30, 2014

      The church has its role to play in society, i.e. to educate based on its perspective of the Bible teachings. However, it has no authority to brow beat or force its teachings or beliefs on any one or any group of persons. Isn’t it the same church that teaches that we live under the dispensation of grace? That God will reward those who obey his laws and destroy those who disobey? Then why play God? You too have sinned and fall short of the glory of God! Who are you to condemn? Who are you to punish? Who are you to judge?

      Homosexuality is rampant under cover in the churches and it is because of the discrimination against gays; they are afarid to be open causing unfaithful relationships and the spread of HIV.

      Let people be free! Their lives are theirs, not yours! Live and let live! Get out of peoples bedrooms! The whole world is enlightened and free, but we continue to be uncivilised against our people here in Dominica while we respect and work with gays in the outside world. What hypocrisy and double standards!

      The both political parties have openly gay supporters; some in high places, so what’s the point? When the true statistics are revealed like night must turn to day, reality will strike home!!!

      • May 5, 2014

        Christ said His people are “the salt of he earth” and “the light of the world”. The Apostle Paul said “we are ambassadors for Christ.” This is true of all Christians but it especially finds expression in the church.

        No nation today is a theocracy. But Christians have been taught to pray “They will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Because Christians are citizens, pay taxes, and vote in our democratic system, we have a right to vote for the candidates who share our values. It is not too much to ask our national leaders to give us laws that reflect the moral code God has given us in the New Testament when it comes to something as serious as homosexuality.

        There are other moral sins. It would be impossible to legislate against them all because unfortunately they are so common the police could never know who are committing them or where it is happening . If such laws were on the books our courts could not handle the additional work, and the jails would be overflowing. We accept that not every sin can be made a crime. It is the responsibility of the church to discipline its members who violate the moral code of God according to the instructions God has given us in the New Testament

        However, homosexuality is in a class by itself. It is unnatural, a sin against nature. (Romans 1:26-28) It strikes against the model or pattern God gave us for marriage and sexual relationships. (Matthew 19:4-6)

        As for the role of the church:

        For 2,000 years the church has – through its bishops, pastors, and evangelists, advised emperors, kings and queens, prime ministers, and presidents, regarding the teachings of the Holy Scriptures pertaining to moral issues in a way that could have a bearing upon legislation. At times the church is listened to. More often it is probably spurned. But this is and will remain a role of the church.

        Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. International Evangelist.

        Your attitude is shared by many. But their lives are usually quite a mess. :cry: Often they are lonely people. They are not the ones who have happy marriages and a good family life. They are often found writing to Bella, checking themselves into rehab, going for therapy, being treated for HIV, or sadly, committing suicide.

        But there is a better life. :-P Jesus said ” …. … …I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly”. (John 10:10)

        Whoever you are or regardless of what have done in life until now, God loves you unconditionally. Christ suffered, bled, and died to pay for your sins. The Bible says

        “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commended his love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:6-8)

        “For God so loved he world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER believeth in him, should not; perish, but HAVE everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

        The WHOSOEVER takes you in :!:

      I do not see why a D/can representative should go before the UN, a set of godless people who are also blind and deaf and are taking the world down slippery slopes and straight into Hell. Woe to them. They will, one day get a good, eternal taste of their action. God is patient.

      • May 5, 2014

        Simply the Truth:

        I am a Canadian and we have our own problems up here. I write for newspapers in my own country and speak out against these evils.

        DNO has a large following in Canada. :lol: Thank you for speaking out. What you said may have been directed to Dominicans but it was read in Canada and my people need it more because homosexuality and murdering the unborn are “legal” here.

        I am an “activist” on several fronts. I have picketed in front of abortion mills in both Canada and the USA. My wife has joined me on a picket line in the States.

        The UN is an abomination. The Bible says “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall also reap.” (Galatians 6:7)

        You are right. Dominica owes no accountability to the UN. Is the UN helping Dominica? Maybe so. But if you help somebody for the right reasons you do not expect to be able to tell them how to govern their affairs and run their households. Any assistance Dominica receives from the UN or China (God have mercy) should be questioned as to the reason or purpose behind it. Do they really think Dominica would sell out their right to self government for a mess of pottage? Make no mistake about it. For whatever reason China has its eye on Dominca :!: Some thinking people are convinced the dragon :twisted: wants a piece of the Caribbean. (Maybe to establish a base.)

        God has a people in Dominica and he will care for His own.

    there are no gay rights in Dominica, it is an insular country where those rights are criminalized immediately. The moment there is separation of church and state, then maybe the country will move forward.

    What is done behind closed doors should remain that, private, between consenting adults.

    Until the church is removed from making comment in politics, don’t expect change.

    • Simply the Truth
      May 2, 2014

      The Church represents God on earth. It has every right to comment and to denounce homosexuality as being intrinsically evil and also so-called same sex marriage.
      God is with His Church. Leave the Church alone if you do not want to perish eternally in Satan’s cauldron of everlasting fire. Even while you live you may suffer immensely as you age.
      God is taking note of all that we do and say for our judgment. When you stand before God, to your regret and detriment, you will see the error of your ways also according to your words.
      God rewards the good (the holy) and punishes the wicked, those who live godlessly.

    there are so many things that are unnatural, stop molesting
    babies, men stop rapeing wemen, and straight men stop
    sodomizing wemen, sex in any butt, male or female is wrong.

    • May 7, 2014

      Of course. All these things are unnatural.

      Homosexuality is the only one that has become a social issue because it is the only one claiming equal rights.

      It has been made illegal because it strikes at Biblical, historical, traditional marriage which is the very cornerstone of any civilized society. Because homosexuals are pushing to have these laws struck down it has become necessary to further research homosexuality and publish the reasons it should be opposed.

      Homosexuals have brought all this negative attention upon themselves. Had they been satisfied to (a) let the anti-buggery laws stand unchallenged, and (b) quietly continue buggering each other behind closed doors, we’d be none the wiser, and there would be no issue.

      But when they began asking for marriage and adoption “rights” they went too far. This took things to a new level because these things will have consequences. It became necessary to make the facts known.

      Have you read the book HOMOSEXUALITY AND THE POLITICS OF TRUTH, by Dr. Jeffry Satinover, M.D.? Dr. Satinover practiced for over 20 years as a psychiatrist and lectured on same sex issues in several of the world’s largest universities on homosexuality

      The case FOR homosexuality is based on:

      “If it feels good go it.”

      The case AGAINST homosexuality is based on:

      Scientific facts like those Dr. Satinover presents in his book.

      There are many people in every part of the world who oppose this abomination. The entire population did not vote for this dirtiness. Some politicians introduced it because they practice this abomination and voted for it.
      The MP in the riding where I reside is a Christian. He did not vote for this abomination. I had written to him about it, reminding him he is a Christian and that he should not vote for this abomination. He replied stating he has no intention of doing so and will refrain from voting. Some MP’s did not show up in Parliament the day of the vote.
      Therefore, wherever you reside, the entire population do not approve of it. This will continue until the end of time when God will crush the head of Satan and once again throw him into Hell forever with his followers, never to tempt anyone again. It will be Heaven or Hell for those who deserve it.
      Life is not a one-way street. We cannot force God on you, to believe in him, worship him and pray to him. Why should you and the likes of you force your Sodom and Gomorrah on us and expect our approval? :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

      • May 6, 2014

        Christians should find out where their M.P.s and all their politicians stand on issues like homosexuality, abortion and
        the legalization of marijuana. Contact them. Ask them outright to declare their positions.

        You can make a difference! If every Christian in the country voted for the candidate that shared Biblical values they could save the nation.

        Many years ago I remember R.C. Bishop Fulton Sheen saying on T.V. “It is better to light one little candle than to curse the darkness.”

        The same applies to voting for a political party. It is irresponsible for a Christian to vote for a party because they like the man or woman, or because they see that maybe one or two planks in that platform could benefit them without taking into consideration the effect the party would have on the moral condition of the nation.

        If we vote for a party that will decriminalize homosexuality, abortion, and marijuana we have only ourselves to blame for the damage these things will do to our society. That will be the world our grandchildren will live in.

        Tomorrow (Wednesday, May 7, 2014) The Journal of Neuroscience will publish studies done by a collaborative effort between Northwestern University’s medical school,
        the Massachusetts General Hospital, and Harvard Medical School showed young casual marijuana smokers experienced potentially harmful changes to their brains, with the drug altering regions of the mind related to motivation and emotion.

        Senior study author, Dr. Hans Beiter, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Northwestern University said “What we are seeing is changes in people who are 18 to 25 in core brain regions that you never want to fool around with.” The study showed changes in the parts of the brain relating to motivation and emotion in those who smoked from one to seven joints a week. The changes involved volume, shape, and density. The professor said “… these changes may be an early sign of what latter becomes amotivation, where people are not focused on their goals.”

        Those who know these things and care should certainly make their influence felt at election time. We can do little to prevent people from practicing these things behind the scenes. But we can greatly limit and minimise the damage by keeping such things illegal.

        Simply the Truth, you did the right thing by contacting your M.P. Let’s encourage others to do the same

    “Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone.”

    • May 17, 2014

      I am not casting stones. I am sharing good news.

      I am doing what I was ordained to do years ago when holy men of God laid hands upon me and a servant of God read the words:

      PREACH THE WORD; BE INSTANT IN SEASON AND OUT OF SEASON: REPROVE, REBUKE, EXHORT WITH ALL LONG SUFFERING AND DOCTRINE. FOR THE TIME WILL COME WHEN THEY WILL NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE; BUT AFTER THEIR OWN LUSTS SHALL THEY HEAP TO THEMSELVES TEACHERS, HAVING ITCHING EARS; AND THEY SHALL TURN WAY THEIR EARS FROM THE TRUTH, AND SHALL BE TURNED UNTO FABLES. BUT WATCH THOU IN ALL THINGS, ENDURE AFFLICTIONS, DO THE WORK OF AN EVANGELIST, AND MAKE FULL PROOF OF THY MINISTRY. (2 Timothy 4:2-5)

      It is what we do :!:

      Preaching the Word means to tell people what God says in the Bible. It means to tell people that when God says something is a sin He will hold them accountable in the day of judgment if they do it.

      Naturally people do not want to be told that thy are sinners and must be saved. The deeper they are entrenched in sin the less they want to be reminded about their condition. But the good news is that God has provided salvation. He has done His part to make it possible for us to get out of the death trap. We have all sinned. But Christ bore the penalty for our sins on the cross. We only have to BELIEVE this and RECEIVE Him as our Savior. When we do God at that moment CANCELS the death penalty and gives us eternal life.

      Please find a Bible and read the following verses.

      Romans 3:10,23, Romans 5:12, John 3:16, Romans 5:6-8,
      1 Corinthians 15:3,4, Ephesians 2:8,9 1 John 5:11-13. St. John 1:11,12, Revelation 3:20.

      I pray that you will believe these precious promises and meet me in heaven.

    Of all the other issues we have in Dominica like, poverty, hunger, inadequate housing for the poor, one of the worst medical facility in the world, which poses a health challenge, human trafficking, etc., it is this issue that is of urgency to this government.
    Somebody anybody, please tell me when this was third and or fourth sex created, for those who do not believe in creation, when were these two sexes evolved.
    I am aware that there are two sexes, MALE (MAN0 and Female (WOMAN) and each have rights guaranteed under the laws and constitution, not only of Dominica, but of every country that I am aware of, so please tell me what is all this talk and fanfare about gay rights.
    This unnatural, and abomination act by selfish people, who can say and do whatever they want, to which we must all be sensitive, and tolerant; yet one is not allowed to express their views on the matter without incurring the wrath of a minority, that insists it must hold the majority at ransom, so that their behavior which should be limited to their bedrooms and private lives, must be flaunted in public, with total disregard for even children.
    It is even more remarkable, that Biology is taught to children, in which the reproductive system requires not male and male, and/or female and female, but male and female, then we show pictures of two males and a child, or two females and a child.
    Talk about confusing children, what better way to do it?
    To compound this unnatural act, no one can explain why human beings are the only life form that has sex for pleasure, while every other life form is for the purpose of procreation.
    What is more puzzling to me is that every faith that I am aware of is supposedly not in support of homosexuality, yet it proliferates, to the extent where while Christ and prayer has been removed from schools gays is now effectively in class rooms of our most vulnerable. No wonder the world is going to hell in a hand basket, we have lost all sense to morality, of faith, of God and worship.
    May God help us all?

      Bigots have eyes but cannot see. If a third sex was steering them in the face from the beginning to time they would not see it. Waste of time enemies of human progress – that’s bigots for you.

      • May 15, 2014

        There is no “third” sex.

        “…Have ye not read, that he which made them at he beginning made them male and female?” (Matthew 19:4)

        Let me tell you what happened in Canada after same sex marriage was legalized. Nothing in Dominca is this bad.

        Here in Ontario, Canada, our provincial government told us a while back there were not only two genders, there were six, and they published a list of them. Then they said a person’s gender is NOT determined by his or her anatomy. You are what you think and feel you are.

        What happened then? We had men thinking they were women because they liked men and women thinking they were men because they liked women. Some of them began undergoing a sex change. They’d get part way through the “change” and not know which public washroom to use, men’s or ladies’. Some went into the wrong room and people ganged up and beat the daylights out of them. Now business places are being forced to create a third washroom to accommodate these creatures.

        This is not progress.

        When governments depart from the plan of God as He has
        revealed it in the Holy Scriptures which has worked well for thousands of years they have no idea where the road will lead or the trouble they may be bringing upon themselves.

        If they knew where the road would lead very few Dominicans Dominicans would want to go there.

        At election time know where your candidates stand on these issues and vote intelligently. You can still prevent your beautiful nation from slipping over the edge.

      Sometimes reason can excuse ignorance, intolerance and even bigotry and that is exactly what you are doing. Have anyone told you nothing in life is to be feared only to be understood,and with understanding, you would be able to fear less, and dispel your intolerance bigotry and ignorance towards other human beings. It should be also be noted that what is moral for you should not be generalized and made applicable to other people.

      You have said something very interreting that i must point out, quote “What is more puzzling to me is that every faith that I am aware of is supposedly not in support of homosexuality, yet it proliferates” Why are you puzzled by that, well isn’t it time for you to wake up and cast away the veil of religion dogma given to you by those so called Faiths. Why do you believe the world is going to hell in a hand basket, saying we have lost all senses to morality, of faith, of God and worship, before you say such thing have you ask your self why such a thing is happening. We are all an expression and manifestation of the divine and it’s very essence is in each and everyone of us. Let us not go from the cradle to the grave without knowing that divine essence in us waiting to be discovered, dogmas and so called Faiths cannot do it for us.

        Homosexuality and so-called same sex marriage will not get anyone to Heaven for the devil is in it.
        Faith, religion and dogmas certainly will for God is present in them.

      Both homosexuals and heterosexuals already have equal rights: THE RIGHT TO MARRY SOMEBODY OF THE OPPOSITE GENDER :!:

      Once a government goes beyond this and
      grants marriage rights to same sex couples they are creating a potential for disaster. If a same sex “couple” can marry what about a father and his adult daughter? What about a brother and sister? What about polygamy? Who is to say a man can not have any number of wives? If the age of consent can be eliminated who is to say a man could not marry a “minor”?

      There are homosexual organizations fighting to have the age of consent eliminated. One such organization in the States has as its motto “Sex by Eight or it’s too Late.” One homosexual magazine is devoted to promoting pedophilia.
      One mouth they put out a special edition extolling the merits of Man-Boy sex.

      I could give you the names of these operations but I will not be guilty of advertising for them.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. International Evangelist.

      Because if a government makes an exception for same sex “couples” it then MUST allow for these other arrangements because if it does not it is DISCRIMINATING :!: These other people will sue the government for EQUAL RIGHTS. The civil rights organizations will fight for them the same as they are fighting for the gays. And he UN will eventually support them.

      Once people cross over into the world of same sex relationship they lose their ability to think objectively. They lose their moral compass and the ability to discern right from wrong. This is why homosexuals are more prone to get involved in the grossest of perversions, and the most horrible of crimes – things that are literally off the charts. I am talking now about crime, the details of which are not being published in mainstream media because political correctness, civil rights, and fear of retaliation trump freedom of speech.

    As citizens of African descent who continues to respect the dignity of our CREATION through Adam and Eve as indeed our core spiritual values as Christians of which this nation has pledged under god to accept and honour.
    With core values of respect and dignity of the relationship of man and woman we must always expouse the values of our motto apres bondieu etc—- we are committed to that principle .
    The intention to commit Dominica into accepting the obvious abomination of a man satisfying his sex gratification with another man is not of us ..it is indeed only a very small minority of such persons in our society ..They do this with no concern for procreation in a manner which is contrary to all that is clean and spiritually correct.
    They cannot be allowed to thrust upon us the American and world new age immorality program who have very no regard for the morality of our Christian and cultural principles which has shaped us historically and culturally ..
    this is not for V or Skerritti to thruat upon us ot is a debate for the antion followed by a referfdum on thoid very grave departure for whst is the core belief of Donimiucans that Buggery is aniamaalistic designed for a strnge sex fulfillment contarary to our porrpose as children designed by god fpor procreation ..notdemonsgtafrbly and pureluy an exercise of direct sex gratification onctatry to all the pricilies that we as people hold escared .
    The American and western appooach is designed to force theuir aberrations and strange core values on us in Afica the middle eeast Russia and the rest of cibvilization
    The only respobse Vince Henderson cn give is that the matter will be sdddecided by a referdum or plebiscite of the domincan population ..to do otherwise is to disregard the consensus which is diamerticallay opposed to the desire of the animal insticht to copulte with man and man with total disregard to the provicple of our creator

      Wow, I do not think your truly understand what dignity and respect for creation means regarding your opening statement of your comment. You sound so cliche, it also sounds like someone giving a political lecture. What’s that all about “Christian Values.” It scares the hell out of me when i hear the term “Christian values”, wasn’t it the same term “Christian values” that imposed the inquisition,and created the dark ages, asked the Kalinago people about Christian values and what it did to their Culture. You talk so proudly about your African decent and yet you forgot how Christian values help destroy their culture. Look at what is happening in Uganda right now regarding the Laws being passed against Homosexuality, again, it is the same term “Christian Values” used by evangelist who influenced these Governments and create a Homo phobic society, very sad indeed. I must also mention that religious dogma has done a very good job in giving you a foundation for some of the things you espoused.

    Folks, even if we remove God from the equation, homosexuality is unnatural. Marriage is an institution designed to perpetuate the human race in utmost fidelity and so them wanting to marry shows how confused and psychologically unbalanced these people are. There is no provision for this behavior in nature, even if you believed in evolution. Think about it. How could a specie survive with no procreation.

    I hear constantly about ‘hypocrites’. If that rule were to be applied then we’re all hypocrites. But does that mean we stop enforcing laws? Does that mean preachers stop preaching, afterall, they’re sinners too. Does that mean you stop being a parent because you fall short in one area? NO!

    Homosexuality is a gross insult to humanity and our place in nature. It violates and disrespects you, your mother, father and siblings… because it pretends to do what it cannot naturally do. The notion of consenting adults or ‘love’ is a smokescreen, because the unpinnings of this behaviour is rooted in infidelity, disobedience, intolerance, hate and self destruction. It has been and continues to be a psychological defect which makes way for potential demonic possession.

    The argument for repealing the ‘ancient’ and ‘archaic’ laws on buggery is another issue that does not hold water. You cannot continue to chip away at the foundations of society without endangering humankind. Some laws need to stand the test of time, else we are doomed to repeat and be punished for the sins of yesterday.

    And the utmost offence… likening the so-called struggles of these people to the Civil Rights struggle is lame and an insult to any race. The color of your skin is not a choice and is not a detriment to humankind.

    This behavior in coming years will prove to be a healthcare disaster. Dominica cannot afford to risk this nightmare and the fallout associated with legitimizing this act. We cannot be fooled, because it only goes downhill from here.

    Dominica should stand up for humanity, for decency, and righteousness… ensuring that our children will be exposed to healthy lifestyles and heterosexual relationships.

        Homosexuality was a factor in the fall of both the Greek and Roman empires. Those who defend this perversion have not done their homework. :roll:

        In itself homosexuality is an unhealthy lifestyle. But the dark areas it can leads into are even worse. People who cross over into same sex relationships sometimes find themselves involve in a world of incredible darkness, :twisted: violence, and horror.

        It seems to be the homosexual mode of operation to ridicule those who oppose their lifestyle by talking down to them and name calling, by the misuse of words and psychological warfare instead of objectively using scientific facts which are not on their side.

        If homosexuals are happy there would not be so many of them with a drinking problem, or in therapy, or committing suicide.

      Wow, you have made such nonsensical general statements regarding Homosexuality.You have also displayed such arrogance and disregard for understanding certain principles using your religious beliefs to give credence to what you believe, some of which is outdated, superstitious and stereotype, very sad indeed.

      Your predictions are so erroneous. You call for some laws to stand a test, but are you willing to have your beliefs stand a test, that is where you must start, examine your beliefs. It is easier to tell a person what life is not, rather than to tell them what it is. A child understands weeds that grow from lack of attention, in a garden. However, it is hard to explain the wild flowers that one gardener calls weeds, and another considers beautiful ground cover.

      Well said!

      There is no love – no romance – in homosexuality.

      It is biological. It is animal lust.

      Gay men stroll in the parks looking for another of their own kind to duck into the bushes with. They sit in gay bars hoping to make eye contact with a potential. When it happened one of them gives a hand signal and the two of them head to the washroom. Many times they do not even exchange first names. Sometimes they would not recognize each other if they met on the street the next day. Before somebody tells me this type of thing goes in among heterosexuals as well let me furnish you with the facts. Among heterosexuals it may take place with prostitutes but rarely in the mainstream of men and women. Among homosexuals it is the way of life.

      I had a male friend who was a homosexual and called his condition an affliction. He told me once that not all alcoholics are homosexuals but all homosexuals are alcoholics. Sadly, he contacted AIDS and committed suicide. It was a tragic ending to a promising life. Charles was a healthcare professional with a hospital job.

      Promiscuity is much more common among homosexuals. A multiplicity of partners is the rule rather than the exception. Homosexual monogamous unions tend to be short lived. Studies have shown that there is more infidelity and domestic violence among homosexual live-in partners than among heterosexuals.

      We will do what we can to prevent young people from going down this road. I know of those who have been in the so called gay life but found salvation and deliverance in Jesus Christ.

      Truth is our best defence against this satanic :twisted: invasion.

      I appreciate the well written logic in your comments. You present solid facts in such an objective way that anybody who registers brainwave can understand. I am of the opinion that those who still want to refute us are not honest. However, this is a demon – a powerful spiritual force. I believe Ephesians 5:12,13 applies here.

      It is very difficult for those whose minds have been taken captive to be objective and even more difficult for them to admit the truth when it would mean breaking satan’s hold.

    DOMINICA is at the cross-roads! It has to choose whether to follow the New World Order that Bush, Clinton, Obama, Blair, Brown and Cameron among other leaders are promoting and let the life-style of ”sodom and gommora” become ”normal” or keep it within the confines of Natuarl and cultural practices that Homo-sexuality Is Not Natural, and therefore illegal and punishable.

    The human rights we have in the west that man can marry man or woman allowed to marry another woman that is Not African and we should not condone it.

    DOMINICA deserves ITS INDEPENDENT RIGHT to charter a course, based on it’s convictions, whether Nature or Religious to make legal and illegal, practices which it deems so, and NOT forced or coerced into making being a homo, cool because Europe and or America, who once considered homosexuality a sin and UN-NATURAL for hundreds or years now says its ”okay to be gay”!

      To those Dominican Genealogists
      I and my family are Dominican, going back hundreds of years. We share a very small African heritage, a small Carib and a large European Heritage. At one stage due to the very low numbers of African slaves,the majority of immigrant Dominicans were European. There was also the Caribs, who helped some African slaves escape and had unions with them. That was the situation in Dominica, a place with a mixed racial character of which the African percentage was extremely low and eventually totally redundant, due to the population interbreeding. It’s only recently, that DA has had any large numbers of “African” migrants. So I find it offensive to categorize myself and large extended Dominican family as “African”,ideologically, racially or aspirationally.
      We must also realise that the Bible,is a book composed by many authors, that has undergone many revisions under different religious “authorities”, with their own agendas. For all I know the Bible as an “authority” on morality, ethics, faith, doctrine etc is writ in sand or blowing in the wind. Using it as precedence for a point of view might be totally erroneous.

    If the world just abided by the 10 commandments that God wrote and handed down to Moses for His people, this discussion among many we would not have been having.

      They are not judging. Some of you do not know the difference in judging and speaking the truth, based on Holy Scripture. If you believe in the Bible, then you should have the sense to comprehend what they stated. They are making a point that homosexuality is a sin. They are judging the act which should never be approved.
      As Our Lord Jesus Christ said, “If they do not speak up even the stones will cry out.” He expects us to speak against this act which also contaminates the minds of little children.
      If you know what is contained in Holy Scripture, the Lord said: “Anyone who causes one of those little ones to sin, it is better that a millstone be hung around his neck and he be thrown into the deep sea.”
      Consider what will occur to them on Judgment Day. In fact, when they die. Christians have a right to speak against it.
      If you feel you have a right to promote this abomination, why not those of us who oppose it?

      It is indeed an unhealthy lifestyle!

      Homosexuals have a greater number of mental health issues.

      They have higher rates of alcoholism and drug abuse.

      They have a higher suicide rate.
      I myself lost a long time friend. He was an educated
      I myself lost a long time friend. He was an educated
      healthcare professional. When I met him he was married with two young sons. But he began drinking, left his family, and eventually was living in the gay village in Toronto. He contacted AIDS and committed suicide. Anybody who knew how hurt I was when I learned of his death would never say I was homophobic, bias, or filled with hate.

      They have a shorter life span.

      Homosexual men more often than they admit have the embarrassing problem of a torn or infected lining of the rectum caused by buggery or anal sex.

      Homosexuals miss out on the joy and comfort of having a flesh and blood family: children, sons or/daughters in law. These become more important to a person the older they get. Not to mention the fact that in a family based jupon true values of love and being kind one to another family members are there for each other in times of need.

      If a homosexual man lives long enough he stands a chance of facing loneliness in old age. This is because he often does not have ties with parents and peers. Other gay men look for younger partners. He himself looks for a younger man but they do not want to be with him. There is a saying in the gay community that nobody loves you when you are old and gay. This is why senior gays are often found in the gay bars drinking and listening to the deafening music late into the evenings to escape the loneliness and just be near other people.

      Homosexuals are the primary spreaders of AIDS. They are more vulnerable to other sexually transmitted diseases because of the multiplicity of partners. Often a casual encounter will be with somebody they do not know and will not see again.

      Not enough is being done to educate people. But your government is wise to let the laws of Dominica reflect the laws of God when it comes to homosexuality. This lifestyle is definitely NOT what knowledgeable parents want for their children and grand children. It will not contribute the well being your beautiful island in he years to come.

        All these could be attributed to the way that their lifestyle,practices are or have been viewed as morally corrupt by their families or societies. Anyone who comes into conflict with “authority”, will always question why the conflict!
        People, have different coping mechanisms. The religious dogma some face, caused them acute anxiety that leads to mental health problems, because an answer is not available.
        Alcohol too is not a solution. The ignorance that pervaded the world regarding Marijuana, is slowly being educated to the benefits. The fact that using something prohibited and illegal, also will cause mental anguish

    There should be no arguments about it. it is wrong and that is why people are suing people for implicating them in this dreaded act. It should be know that male is for female and female for male anything other than that is sodomy.

    No law can make anything wrong right. The only legal thing that really destroys lives presently is alcohol and it will remain so for a long time because it is taxed and vatted.

    I truly believe that alot of other commodities should be legalized and taxed, but let buggery and lesbianism remain a private affair still as it will never be accepted by the majority.

      May 3, 2014

      Stating it loud and clear this act is a dangerous one in that those who practice it will not be able to stand before God and say “I did not know” or “No one told me.”
      They do not love God. They love themselves and refuse to change. They do not want to make a sacrifice for God that He might forgive them.
      They are warned that if they do not amend their ways, submit to God, pray and make penance and sacrifice to appease God, you know their eternal lot. It will not be eternal hapopiness for them on that inevitable day. For, among other teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ, He said: “Be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect.”
      It is not perfection to be a homosexual, having a relationship with another of the same sex. It is quite abnormal and an abnormal practice.
      God created male and female. He did not create homosexuality. They took it upon themselves to indulge in this type of lifestyle. They want the entire world to endorse their sinfulness? NO WAY! Sorry, tell them to go to Hell!
      This is how angry I am that they want the Dominican government and Dominicans to approve of their immoral actions. Those who do will go with them to Satan’s cauldron of everlasting fire.
      May we, practicing Christians of all not make excuses for them for we too will end up there. We will be severely punished.
      Our Lord said, “Those who know it is a sin and do nothing, they will be severely punished. For to whom much is given, much is expected in return.” This is the Word of the Lord.

    Firstly, the Dominican society must stop quoting the bible when it is convenient for them. Many of you want to chastise homosexuality yet fail to address the fornication, adultery and the “players” way of life equally.

    Secondly, if one examines the piece of legislation regarding “buggery” what or who are we punishing? How does one prove buggery? We know fully well we do not have any forensic evidence and how effective is this law in its enforcement? How effective is this law and has it curbed homosexuality in Dominica? If we are enforcing such a law the act should be able to be proven scientifically both to homosexuals and heterosexuals. Yet, we see clearly that this piece of legislation only targets a minority group and this is clear injustice.

    Thirdly, it is clear that the western society has lost the war regarding its suppression of homosexuality; very soon Dominica has no choice but to endorse homosexuality as part of its sexual lifestyle. Sorry people but no matter how many people close their eyes and pray to whatever god they wish nothing will reverse this lifestyle in Dominica. Homosexuality is here to stay whether one likes it or not.

    Lastly, whether one loves or hates homosexuality, the western society has itself to blame for the trends in its sexual practices. When a people chooses secular democracy over divinely revealed scriptures then these are the consequences. In the next decade or two we will hear that pedophiles and bestiality practitioners are “normal” and that they shouldn’t have to hide either. The most we can do as parents is to have a broad mind, understand homosexuality and its dimensions so that we can inform our children about it, when they have an age of discernment they will choose right and wrong. If we threaten our children they will find their mate to practice homosexuality with, if we develop rapport and trust they may open up to us so the choice is ours.

      A lot of people use that scripture as a licence to encourage sin. In fact, throughout the Bible we are called upon to discourage sin and to use our judgement. This particular scripture refers to assuming condemnation to Hell. However if a person persists in sin, the Bible is very clear on what will happen. It is also very clear that homosexuality is a sin.

      • April 30, 2014

        When we tell people what the Bible (the law of God) says about homosexuality it is not US who are judging. When we warn them that God says homosexuals who do not repent will be lost and outside the kingdom of God for ever it is not US who are judging. We are simply tell them what God says.

        It is the same as a lawyer or a police officer telling people that a certain act is a crime and if they commit that act they could go to jail. The lawyer or the police officer is not the judge. But he or she has studied the law and is qualified to tell us what the law says. It is their duty to warn us.

        God is the judge. We will stand before Him. He will hand down the verdict if we are guilty. He will pronounce the sentence.

        As an evangelist I have studied and been trained to do
        what a lawyer or police officer would do and that is to tell people what the law of God says. It is my duty to warn them of the possible consequences if they brake His law. But then I can go further. I can tell them the good news that God says if they will plead guilty and repent before the judgment day – if they will receive Christ as their personal Savior – they will be forgiven. This is called the gospel!

        Please check out 1 Corinthians 15:1, Romans 1:16, Ephesians 2:8,9, 1 John 5:11-12,13, Revelation 3:20.

      You cannot clean up one mess and leave the other. There are laws in Dominica against homosexuality AND sexually molesting and abusing children. If you know of a child being sexually abused you should report it to the police. They will certainly deal with it if they have the necessary evidence.

      Not all homosexuals abuse children. But the percentage of pedophilia among homosexuals is much higher than among heterosexuals . Only about 3 or 4 percent of the population is homosexual. But this smaller percentage commit a disproportionate percentage of the crimes. This is because one homosexual offender will assault a larger number of children and often abuse one child many times again and again.

      Homosexual organization are known to lobby to have the age of consent lowered and sometimes to have it eliminated. It is homosexual organizations that do this. One of their organizations had a slogan that said, SEX BY EIGHT OR IT IS TOO LATE. A homosexual organization in the States publishes an official magazine. One month they put out a special edition extolling the joys of man-boy sex, and promoting pedophilia in general.

      I could give you the names of these organization, their addresses, and the name of this magazine which I have in my office. But I simply will not advertise for these filthy creeps or be responsible for helping anybody be able to contact them.

      This is why you need the laws against both homosexuality and the sexual abuse of children. Both have at their core a heart filled with rebellion against God and disrespect for marriage and family . Both feed each other.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. International Evangelist.

    • May 15, 2014

      There are other sins and abominations. Why should there be such a fuss about homosexuality and why should some of us focus upon it?

      One reason is because a homosexual is more apt to abuse a child than a heterosexual. I have seen stats that bare this out. However, there is no need to see the paper work. Just look at the Catholic church. Most of their priests are heterosexuals. Yes, occasionally we hear of a heterosexual priest getting sexually involved with a woman or a little girl. But it is the smaller percentage of homosexual priests that have created the major scandals world wide by raping little boys and young men. They have cost the church millions of dollars in fines, pay-outs, and hush money. Parishes have been forced to sell buildings and lands. Some have been driven to the edge of extinction. Again it is the smaller percentage of homosexual priests that are doing this, not the heterosexual priests.

      Another reason is that homosexuals are more likely to become involved in even more serious sexual and other crimes. I have seen online references to studies that indicate that 40% of serial killers are gay. It gets even worse. But out of respect for the good people of the Caribbean I will stop here.

      It will be a good thing if we can discourage people from entering the gay life and help some who are already there to break free.

      There are therapies that treat homosexuality with various degrees of success. Some have been set free through “deliverance” by the authority in Jesus’ name and the power of His blood, followed by strong pastoral counseling.

      This is why we provide information on the subject from a Biblical perspective.

      And this is why deliverance is part some ministries including my own.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. International Evangelist.

        These countries that have decriminalized homosexuality and legalized same sex “marriages” many years ago licensed the manufacture and sale of cigarettes. That was before the studies were done and the research was published. :oops:

        In those days it was “cool” to smoke. Even many doctors smoked. I recall our doctor lighting up in our home. Medical Journals carried cigarette advertising. The only people who spoke against tobacco were born again Christians, especially pastors and evangelists. They didn’t have any science on their side in those days. They quoted scriptures :idea: like Romans 12:1, and 1 Corinthians 6:19,20. They said things like “If God wanted you to smoke he would have made you with a smoke stack on your heads.” :roll:

        Now it is known that 50% of the people who smoke will die from a disease caused by smoking. :cry: It doubles your chance of dying from lung cancer. Governments are now spending a fortune of the tax payers money to prevent people from smoking, and to get those who smoke to quite. But they still license the industry.

        So please don’t tell us of all the big countries that have revoked their laws against homosexuality and legalized same sex “marriage” as if they should be an example for Dominica to follow. These nations don’t have the best record when it comes to good judgment and common sense. Governments :mrgreen: can be stupid, stupid, stupid!

      Equal rights for all :?:

      When it comes to equal rights for all you are applying this to sex. So would it apply to a father and his adult daughter?
      What about a brother and sister? Governments cannot give the “right” to have sex to two men and refuse to give it to these others because the moment they do they are discriminating and violating the “equality” principle!

      Would you apply this “equality” to every other activity or part of life?

      Obviously not :!: There are always boundaries to be observed, and qualifications to be met. People cannot drive a car, fly a plane, or practice medicine or law without a licence. You can’t enter university until you have graduated from high school. Public washrooms have signs on he doors saying MEN and WOMEN.

      A male does not have an equal right to enter a washroom with the WOMEN sign on the door. Not even if he thinks he is a woman! Interestingly, here in Canada since “gay rights” have been legalized this very thing has been happening! One “trans” man went into a ladies’ room. Sadly, people caught him and beat the daylights out of him. Another man sued for his “right” to use the woman’s room, and he wasn’t even in drag. He was simply convinced he was a woman because he liked other men. Some establishments have been forced to install a third washroom to accommodate these people.

      Departing from the plan and purpose of God leads to chaos. “Have ye 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 twain shall be one flesh.” (Matthew 19:4,5)

      Nations that don’t honor God’s order in creation and the sacredness of marriage and get caught up in this equality nonsense get themselves into a legal mess. Holland had a political party that made their main plank (get this!) the elimination of the age of consent! Equal rights for all, even children! The party collapsed before it achieved its goals, thank God.

    I fail to understand why there are people who oppose the repealing of the buggery laws. They are remnants of our colonial past that we ought to be moving beyond. These laws are archaic and serve only to harm. What is the benefit to people that want to law to remain in place? It will NOT magically decrease the incidence of homosexuality in Dominica but merely increase the number of people hiding their true selves.

    I hate comparing homosexuality to the rights movement but the situation of similar. We as a people (black/slaves/etc) were oppressed in the past and were given less status than other races (white). Why now that we have risen do we choose to oppress others minority groups?

    I love Dominica and I can’t see a single negative to repealing the laws. And for those who live by the bible and will throw bible quotes at me like daggers please remember three things:
    1. Love one another as I have loved you. Most religions follow the New Testament which preaches love and acceptance for ALL.
    2. The Pope (for the Catholics here) specifically said who is he to judge others.
    3. Religion and government/laws are not directly tied to each other. Why should homosexuality be outlawed while gambling is allowed? Why should a specific sect of religion be allowed to control our law making? For instance would it be acceptable if we had a strict islam government like Saudi Arabia and the archaic restrictions it places on women?

    So my fellow Dominicans think about this and let’s have a civilized debate moving forward. :-D

    If Skerrit or Lennox think they’re going to make Miridom happy and gay, they must remember the rest of us in the majority and they must tread carefully when it comes to this bugger business. Let us at least follow God’s principles on this one. Maridom and dem need to repent but if not, just stay in their closets, do their little arrangements and decorations and leave us alone. Now they want to kiss, marry and raise kids in our face, they going to UN? In Dominica, we are hypocrites but we religious and Vince better know what he going to say or do at the UN because next election the house of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will not vote any PM who going to teach our children otherwise.

      Speaking of hypocrisy, Leviticus also forbids eating shellfish, but strangely no one in Dominica is fervently protesting the lobster special at Sunset Bay. As a matter of law, consenting adults should do what they want. Dominica can be a Christian society without being a theocracy.

        Tell it like it is Steve! We need a PM like you papa! There is NO place for Religion in this because if we use that logic, we would have to put ALL the laws of the bible in the constitution and our statutes. Now, *that* would be interesting. Red tents, no lobster, pork? (well, that alone would be a huge debate) and we’d definitely have to start rethinking our poly-cotton blends. Moon sot oui!

        This pertained to the Jews in those days. Our Lord Jesus Christ did not forbid us to eat shellfish or pork.
        As some people say, I go by the Bible and show me where in the Bible – of the New Testament are these instructions.
        If you are a Christian you are obligated to go by the teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
        Our Lord ate fish. Note when he took five fishes, blest them, multiplied them and they were distributed to those who were present. Fish has a scale, similar to a shell.

        The Old Testament law was for Israel and ended at the cross. (Romans 10:4) (Galatians 3:16)

        See an example of this in Act 10:9-15.

        The Old Testament law forbid homosexuality. However, the New Testament also forbids homosexuality. (Romans 1:27)

        Dominica can choose as a nation to obey or disobey God. If it choses to obey God it must assure that its laws reflect the laws of God in the New Testament for this age. If it choses to disobey God it cannot claim God’s protection whent he time of adversity comes and should not expect it.

        If you reject God He will reject you. It is a matter of equal rights :!:

    Wow, our PM is not going to act because he did not hear anything. Where is common sense in our elected officials? Is Dominica going to be spoilt because there are gays and lesbians living within there borders? Now, we have thieves, robbers, liars, name it. Does God, or will God destroy the country of Dominica because of them? What God wants you and l to do is to mind our own business, to lift up the down trodden, to make peace, and to make life better for all. One thing He does not want us to do is to judge, to condemn, to discriminate against anyone, but to help everyone despite their faults. We may not like Gays and Lesbians but, guess what, we have to live with them all over the world. God made that individual as much as he made that bigot, that , that criminal, name it. What God cannot stand is that hypocrite that calls for God’s condemnation, for calling His name in vain, and for us crucifying people because we do not like what they do. The UN understands the human rights issues of the day. What they hope is that nations respect human rights regardless of how one is afflicted. I may not like you but, l don’t have the right to discriminate against you. We can only hope that our government can exercise common sense and respect every individual regardless of their orientation. The laws must be enforced to protect everyone at every level, and that includes Gays and Lesbians. The criminals on our streets get more protection, and their acts are evil. Two people in their privacy should be given that protection as long as they are not a menace, a problem to the public. The sad fact is however, you and l don’t know who is gay among us. Two men or women are not a problem to you, me, or my children. Who l am afraid off, is the man that will break down my door and kill me. I hope that our UN representative will have common sense, and respect people regardless of their likings, and those that respect the laws of the land

Have you all ever ask yourselves that question?and you also telling me that God made a mistake by creating male and female ? Don’t you all believe there is a reason for one MALE AND ONE FEMALE IN THE UNIVERSE ? when you read about Noah , he took on the Arch one male one female of all animals and human not two male nor two females .

    Be very careful Yoland! Its not ok to be that dogmatic. Think before you speak. These practices are all over you. Secretly in our homes, and even on the pulpit. You have to be relevant to all people. You must have a relationship with a person to bring them the message of grace. Your language simply push them away.

      You don’t have to have a relationship with a person to bring them the message of grace. You have to convict them of sin and preach the good news. That’s the way Jesus did it, and it’s the only way that works.

        Simple words, profound truth.

        There is no other right way! It is God by the Holy Spirit who convicts people of their sins, imparts faith, and generates new life within.

        God honors His Word and nothing but His Word. When we preach the old fashioned gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) (Romans 1:16) (Galatians 1:8,9) God does the rest.

        Hearts are changed. (Hebrews 10:16) Lives are transformed. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

        Churches that don’t preach the gospel have to bring in something to entertain the people. Even if they draw crowds they are not delivering people from her sinful ways. They are not making getting people ready for heaven.

        It is too late to play church.

        Tell it like it is. No tricks. No gimmicks.

    well I don’t have a prob with gays but they should keep there sex life in the privacy of there homes and that it not on the streets. so make the law so that they can do whatever they want in the privacy of there homes but keep it out of the streets, but things like them getting married, adopting children and hug up on street making love nah don’t think so. we should give them a feet not a yard, they are people too!

      The Word of God alone determines what is sin.

      Sin is sin whether it is committed in a bedroom behind a closed door, in an alley, on a street corner, or on the deck of a cruise ship in full view of a mixed audience on shore!

      This mentality that says it’s O.K. as long as nobody sees us and we don’t get caught is plain out stupid! It is not even what we teach our children, and we have adults talking that way?

      The question is not “Does it offend the viewers?”

      The question is “Does it offend a Holy God?”

      Please stop this foolishness about how it doesn’t harm anybody if it is done in private. “There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed.. (The Bible) Sin is a God issue not a social issue.

      Nations that want God’s protection and blessings must have rulers that honor God and give them laws that avoid offending the great Creator. Some nations have literally taken themselves out from under God’s protection. It is a dangerous time in history to do that. So what if some people don’t agree with anti – buggery laws and such like? That is their problem. I travel in an international ministry. When I visit another country I have to obey the laws of that nation . What if I don’t agree with one of their laws? Does it not apply to me because I don’t like it? Of course not! I can’t believe there are people so foolish!

    The fact of the matter is, there is a growing population of gays in Dominica. and repealing it is basically accepting it. Yes you dont like to think of the content of their relationship, then why do you. frankly its none of anyones business. Just like racism, dismissing gays can also be viewed as a form of discrimination. Why should it matter?. No need to get offensive. Also, at the end of the day those that are gay are still going to hold their heads up high, hold hand and express their love. Yes maybe not in public. But you cant criminalize something thats only human nature.

      Well Said

    • May 6, 2014

      The problem is homosexuality is not human nature.
      It is a perversion – a twist – a sin against nature.
      Please read Romans 1:26,27.

      The very fact that neither men nor women have the anatomy to have sexual intercourse with their own gender tells us it is not natural.

      Added to this is the fact that two men or two women cannot reproduce tells us it is not natural.

      If it was natural homosexuals would not have higher rates or mental health issues, alcoholism, and suicide. They would not have the higher rate of AIDS and be the main spreaders of the HIV virus .

      To say it is natural is cruel because this would mean they cannot change. The first step toward change is to confess that homosexuality is a sin. Confess it to God (1 John 1:9),
      and accept His forgiveness for it, along with other sins in one’s life based on the fact that “…the blood o Jesus Christ (God’s) Son cleanseth us from all sin.” 1

      • May 6, 2014

        Rev. Donald Hill (Continued…

        (1 John 1:7) It takes time to break free from something as deeply ingrained as homosexuality especially if it has been practiced over a long period of time. Pastoral counseling and/or deliverance may be indicated. These services are available in some evangelical full gospel churches. It should be part of every God called, God anointed ministry.

        It is a well kept secret but the good news is homosexuals can be delivered from this evil bondage. Regardless of what some in the gay community will tell you there are former homosexuals who are now married and have children of their own.

    If that is so why would our Ambassador at the U.N. in New York address this issue in Geneva, when this appears to be Francine Baron’s responsibility? What is going on? Are they trying to spare the Lady having to tackle such a sensitive subject?

        Look at how they left this realm: philosophers and Historians are still con-fused as to where mista dem got they Know-ledge, from, and the little they allegedly left have one nationality Dominating all other Nationalities,,,

        So to Answer “Bogoroy” this realm appears to be getting from Bad to worst as the Men at the Helm who appear to be condoning the concepts of Homosexuality are causing more destruction than protection of the little peoples,,,

        The concept of Man-On-man and wombman-on-wombman is not natural, take 50 gay men and 50 gay women and put them on a quarantined place where they cannot have any intercourse between man and wombman lets see how long that generation will last,,,

        Your Last paragraph written in such jargon shows such ignorance on your part regarding the matter it also shows how little you understand the principles governing human nature. Homosexuality is not a threat to the extinction of the human race, that is such a nonsensical idea. I could also suggest to you what if we put 50 heterosexual couples who are infertile in quarantine where they could have sex their generation would not last also.

        Homosexuality is not about a threat to our generation but our understanding regarding the nature of the human being. Do you really think that if buggery laws are repealed it is going to affect your life.

      This hypocritical talk of what “God says” has no place in this debate if your god’s laws change based on who is talking about what.

        @Bogoroy, that is precisely why adultery is a crime and that’s why it is a basis for divorce between two married people; drunkenness in a public place is also a crime, fornication between an adult and a child is a crime, theft is a crime, coveting your neighbors belongings usually leads to theft, robbery and burglary, which are all crimes, just like buggery in a public place, so WHAT ARE YOU GETTING AT?

        “Why :idea: does a heterosexual male fear gays so much?”

        A question like this shows how void of reasonable content the “gay” cause actually is. :oops:

        Gays and their sympathizers toss the word “homophobic” around as if it was a disease straight people get. There are many different “phobias”. A phobia is an irrational or unreason able fear of something. People who oppose homosexuality do so for moral or medical reasons, :-o not because they fear homosexuals. I have never met a homosexual I was afraid of. For example I worked in the security industry. I was the supervisor :-| :-? (with uniformed guards working under me) at the national headquarters of a large company in Canada during a long and vicious strike. I was also a licensed private investigator.
        (P.I.) 8) People who know me laugh :lol: when somebody implies that I am afraid of homosexuals.

        Those who defend homosexuality do not have science or logic on heir side. They cannot be objective. This is why they talk down to their opponents. The inappropriate abuse of words (like homophobic) and psychological warfare (like intimidating) are the only resources they have. 8-O

        However, winning an argument is not important to me. All that matters is that people hear the gospel and turn from their sins to a loving God who will forgive them and set them free. :-o
