MiriDom questions rejection of consensual buggery by committee examining Sexual Offenses Act

miridomCoordinator of local group, Minority Rights Dominica (MiriDom), Daryl Phillip has reacted to the denial of a recommendation to have consensual buggery among adults legalized in Dominica.

“What is the reason for it? I mean, is there really a reason why they rejected it?” he asked.

Recently a committee was set up, headed by Legal Consultant, Ray Harris, to review the Sexual Offenses Act of 1998 and make observations and recommendations to have it amended.

A suggestion to legalize consensual buggery among adult was submitted to the committee, however, it was denied.

MiriDom, which has been calling on the government to repeal sections of the Act that make consensual buggery illegal, wants to know why the suggestion was denied.

“Why they would still keep buggery, whether between man and woman or man and man on the books of the laws of Dominica…it’s nothing that anybody could do about it,” Phillip said on privately-owned Q-95’s The Hot Seat on Thursday. “Even if they rejected it, that doesn’t mean that people still wouldn’t have their natural sexual urges that they would like to exercise, so it’s not like because a committee says something that everything is just going to go away.”

He added, “So you put the law and you don’t put the law against consenting adults that are having an affair in the privacy of their home. Are you going to break down their door to come in to see them doing it? Will one of them complain to say you forced yourself on me? Or is it just a fuel to encourage people to try to blackmail others.”

He stated that the law impedes on people’s rights to sexual freedom, which he said is a human right.

He added that members of MiriDom are getting tired of all the “unreasoned arguments” on the matter.

“And some people think that we are just not ready as a society to discuss this,” Phillip noted.

He said MiriDom awaits “reasoning” from the committee as to why consensual buggery among adults in Dominica buggery has been rejected.

“It is because the bible say so?” he asked. “The bible says a lot of different things and it is not in the laws of Dominica …..”

The government has made it clear that buggery will never be legalized in Dominica.

In 2013, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said that buggery laws on the books will not be repealed pointing out that he has not heard any ‘compelling’ argument to support such move. In 2014, he also made it clear that same-sex marriages will not be accepted by his government, pointing out that “certain guiding principles” must be followed in that matter.

MiriDoM has always said that sections of the Sexual Offenses Act discriminates against people because of their sexual preferences,” noting that everybody should be treated equally.

    Angels are gay, and they live in heaven.
    Dominica is heaven on earth, so of course we should welcome gays!

    But srsly… Why on earth should the government EVER be allowed to have a say on how people live their life without hurting anyone? And if YOU get offended by a fellow human for who they are, be it obese, kalinago, gay, or just different from you in some way, then YOU’RE the problem, who got a serious ethics and attitude problem, and should be stached away for everyones best.

    Why buggery should be legal
    ===================

    I was travelling from Massacre to Portsmouth the other day with a friend who was a known buggerer. I was not worried at all because I knew that is he tried it on, there would be serious criminal consequences for him and he knew that.

    However, being the driver, my lack of concern about this, did made me sleepy and at one time, halfway through the journey, I had to stop to take a brief walk to get me alert again.

    Now, if buggery had been legal, the concern about my passenger trying it on (and possibly succeeding with the result of my manhood being injured beyond repair), would have kept me awake and alert in order to make my destination in record time without a break.

    I know this sounds frivolous, but time is money these days and anything that can be done to help us save time, should be.

    Why the government is lying about buggery!

    1) You can’t break the law to uphold the law. The various human rights UN treaties – notably the Vienna Treaty – (which are part of our constitution) to which Dominica has signed up to provide that it is illegal to discriminate against minorities. Gays are minorities and to practice as homosexuals, they need to bugger. It’s as simple as that. So to deny them buggery is not only illegal, but it is unconstitutional and any statute prohibiting is is void;

    2) Homosexuals in Dominica should happily bugger away and when challenged, take the government to court citing the un-constitutionality of Dominican laws that prohibit this activity which is supported by the legal provisions of the UN human rights treaties to which Dominica is a signatory.

      They call themselves minorities to suit their lifestyle. They are no minorities.
      God will hold those governments that legalize this abomination accountable. They have set an evil precedent for the world and contaminate the minds of children to accept this abomination and say it is OK. It is not OK and by no means in the eyes of God. This pertains to those who approve and support them.

      People are free to do as they please. No one is harnessing them. They are already doing what they want according to their whims and wiles.
      God gave everyone a free mind and will. It is this same free mind and will which will either save them or condemn them, according to their lifestyle.
      Think of yourself dying and then standing before God for your judgment as a homosexual, a lesbian or a prostitute, having practiced it throughout your lifestyle with no regret and remorse. Just think where you will end up in eternity.

    The one thing (the most important thing for me) that no one has mentioned in these comments (or even MiriDom) is that continued criminalisation of consensual homosexual practice discourages people from seeking testing for HIV and AIDS. If the unjustified demonisation of adult men in same sex relationships continue it has the effect of slowing down the fight against this disease especially as some of them practice bisexuality to try to hide their homosexuality. Let these guys be open so that those who need help can get it safely and lessen the danger to the rest of us.

      That’s what these idiots don’t understand. You can’t change someone’s nature no matter how you try. By forcing people to hide their nature you just create more problems. That’s why there’s such a high rate of teenage pregnancy and abortions among religious communities. Religion puts this big taboo on sex so much so that some parents are embarrassed to discuss it with their children and instead try to hide and shield them from it.

      If you do have the scientific evidence I will support you fully. HIV/STI information is placed out there for everyone, whether your sexual preference is suppressed by society or not. I work in a country where there is no law against homosexuality/buggery… people are very open about it…..and the incidence of HIV is still very high. I also work with HIV patients, and I tell you the fact that buggery is not illegal doesn´t change the fact that more people are still being diagnosed with the disease. IT IS ALL ABOUT RISK, AND NOT SEXUAL PREFERENCE, HOMOSEXUALS ARE STILL HAVING UN PROTECTED SEX, MULTIPLE PARTNERS AND ROUGH SEX. This is what drives the HIV epidemic, RISKY BEHAVIOUR, and not sexual orientation. I can provide the figures to support my statements or just google scientific papers re the Driving Force or Determinants of the HIV Epidemic. Now unless you can show otherwise your statement has no grounds.

      People contract this disease because of their intrinsic lifestyle. Do not expect others to get involved in it.
      If innocent people contract it through such people, then the proper authorities could get involved. In fact, those who spread it to others should be sued and punished.

    How much macko any auntie man that Dominica have. When I was growing we knew all of them in Lagoor and other parts of Dominica. We known those macomere that use to fix bicycle and those that use to make souse in Roseau. The point I am making is that it is totally asinine when I read comments suggesting that change to the buggery laws will cause gays to flock to Dominica. Those laws have been repealed in most countries, Gay marriage is the law of the land in most countries. Believe it or not I do not subscribe to the gay lifestyle. I just don’t think LGBT persons should be discriminated against.

    You need to think God. You have swayed far from God. Were you not a practicing Christian and a Catholic at that? Most people were Catholics in those days.
    The Bible is the word of God. We are obligated to obey. If we fail to, woe to us.
    Buggery is an abomination. What you do in your bedroom only God knows. What you do in public, everyone knows and it creates a scandal and a bad example for the youths.
    What do you want to have in public, an orgy?
    You have your rights, in your home. This is good enough for you.
    God is higher than the Laws of any country. You know what God did to Sodom and Gomorrah. It is in the Holy Bible; not fiction. People as you will bring down the wrath of God upon the earth, sooner than He planned.
    Your action is an abomination to the Lord.
    You really want to bring down Dominica and other nationals with you to the abyss.
    Because other countries have legalized this abomination, you want it legalized in our little D/ca? God forbid!

  12. March 10, 2016

    The Word of God forbids homosexuality.

    We encourage you to read the following scriptures:

    Leviticus 18:22
    Roman 1:26,27
    1 Corinthians 6:9,10
    1 Timothy 1:9,10
    Genesis 19:1-25 with Jude vs.7

    For 2,000 years the Christian church has taught that homosexuality is a sin based upon these scriptures.

    It is not for religious reasons alone we oppose homosexuality. It is an unhealthy life style.

    Homosexuals have the highest percentage of HIV/AIDS cases of any people group and are the ones most responsible for spreading HIV/AIDS.

    Homosexuals have more mental health issues than heterosexuals. They suffer more from depression, and have a higher rate of alcoholism. With no flesh and blood family of their own they suffer more from loneliness in their senior years. They have a higher suicide rate, and a shorter life span.

    I could give you more information but I hope this will be enough to encourage you to search out the facts.

    Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.

    • Calibishie Warrior
      March 11, 2016

      sex with a minor and bestiality are undesirable because (and only because) it infringes on the rights entities who cannot defend themselves and cannot give consent as to what is happening to them. Incest is medically (genetically) dangerous.. Come up with a similar argument (with does not involve religion .. becaus e the law has to apply to non belivers as well as believers) .. and you can then be taken seriously ..

    March 10, 2016

    Laws are put in place to control certain behaviors like incest, bestiality, buggery etc…so mister you are saying whether or not you have the law people will still do buggery in the privacy of their homes. So why should you worry about the law? Nobody is going to arrest buggers there. But sex between adult males is not illegal yet still people blackmail each other all the time. So what is your point about encouraging blackmailing. Re your statement about laws impeding on sexual freedom to bugger. The law does the same for the sexual freedom to rape, have unlawful intercourse with a minor, for doing bestiality. And lastly the Bible is key in guiding what is considered to be wrong or right. Buggery is one of those wrong things just like murder, stealing etc..so you do not have a compelling argument sir.

There are people (and this might shock you .. so sit down) who live in this land who are not Christians or who say they are Christians and are not really … the law should not apply to them? or do they have to subject themselves to our belief just to live here legally?

      18The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

      21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

      24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and…

        God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

        26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

        28Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32Although they know…

        relax bro…better take some Prozac or just chamomile tea if you prefer natural, because it helps to reduce your religious hallucinations.
        Your god always justifies all cruelties and atrocities committed by ‘true believers’. Why?
        I presume conquistadors which raped and plundered entire continent and created genocide against indigenous people, all of them quoted bible. Ask what Aztec and Mayans thought about your religion?
        Good christians enslaved africans and wrecked havos in Africa….of course with full acceptance of Rome and of course god advised them to do so. Your god approves everything: concentration camps, shelling of civilians, rapes …everything. Hitler knew it!
        Maybe its time to forget your angry and cruel god and start to value more important things like 1) human life 2) health 3) freedom to love and be loved
        That’s the real values, which will be universal for entire humankind. Your god will be forgotten as it happened many time before..Zeus, Ra, Anshar, Alator…

        minorities rights do not equal to “F… animals and children”. Its utterly nonsense even to compare it. Majority is brainless because it cant critical reason arguments and believe in everything its told to believe. If your son is homosexual, will you stop loving him as father? If you happened to be born guy, would you expect your parents to denounce you because of your inclinations?

    -cult like rituals that lead to death

    I love women, grown women and what God gave them for reproduction. Sex between to adult individuals of the same gender is sinful according to the bible. So is adultery, fornication, lying, lust, jealousy, gluttony, and the list of other sins that do not infringe on the rights of others. Why are they not on the books. Keeping buggery illegal does not stop the act and we all know lots of prominent folks who are involved. Hypocrisy!!!! God alone judges and men a free to do what they want unless it dies not infringe on the rights of others. Guess the CDPF should set up a buggery unit to go catch those criminals in the act. You cannot enforce this law, nor does it affect or has ever affected our society and to date I do not know any adult who has been arrested. Waste of time.

        Lol. You are free to think what you want. The only reason Dominica having this debate is because it is a sick pervated country that only can think about sex. That is why they have so many molestations, and other crap in this place. Men in Dominica take , kids, ole women, animals and each other. I agree with your comment it’s on a moral decline. Morality is not controlled by laws, but by individual conscience and judged by only God. In other words there are more important things that the government should fix than who people having sex. While some men are into buggery, some are into adultry, fornicaton, and other sins. Let’s check our conscience and fix our lives. Yes you saw it above I love women. What other people do is thier business.

      • March 11, 2016

        Every act forbidden by God is a sin.

        The more serious sins are also forbidden by the law of the nation and you can be penalized for doing these things.

        Some sexual behavior is sinful in the sight of God but not illegal according to the nation’s laws.
        Fornication and adultery are sins in God’s sight but your nation has no laws against them. They are sins but not crimes. So you are asking why homosexuality is illegal? Let me tell you why.

        Unfortunately fornication and adultery are so common the police would have no way of knowing who was committing these sins, where, or when. There are not enough police to enforced laws against these sins. Added to this the prisons could not accommodate these people.

        However, there is another reason. Homosexuality is in a category by itself apart from fornication and adultery.

      Can you give one convincing argument that it is ‘wrong?’ And I am not religious, so quoting the bible does not count, for me, as an argument, unless you can prove that I have any reason at all to believe anything in the bible.

        Nothing needs to be proven to you,the fact that you are so adamant on excluding the Bible tells me you only try to convince your self that it is irrelevant because its convieninent to you,sadly not believing does not dismiss its authenticity. My country like all the so called Christian Nations might be bias as to what they condone and rebuke but that is no excuse to accept what our faith deems an abomination, its funny smart ppl shoot down an ancient library that transcends millenias but pick up the books of those written in the last few centuries and decades. On what basis is buggery acceptable, who or what convinced you? Where did this info originate?

        Yes I can. Human faeces contain trillions of bacteria including those that cause disease and death eg typhoid fever. If a person has parasites eg worms, protozoans they will also be in there. It’s not a playground, period. It’s nasty and that’s why nature made it smell like an alarm to let us know to keep off.

      Homosexuality is against nature according to Romans 1:26,27. Because of this it is contrary to the model or blueprint God gave us for marriage Matthew 19:4-6. Nations with a Christian heritage based their marriage laws upon the instructions of Christ in the New Testament.

      This is a poor comparison. MiriDOM is explicitly talking about ‘consensual’ sex. You are talking about sex with a minor–which is, by definition, not consensual, because minors cannot legally give consent. Your comparison is absurd.

      Is it wrong based on man’s law or God’s law? If by God’s then, we should criminalize adultery and fornication to safeguard our society.

      How are we even interested with what another human does with their own body? How does it harm you or me?

        Do you feel good about it? But you need others so you can feel good about it. It is wrong both ways. From since the very beginning. Because human law is imperfect in nature and God’s law is perfect.

        It is wrong based on natural law, and that is what God is. This act of buggery produces nothing. People practice oral sex, it cannot be legalise and has not been promoted for it to be so. MeriDOM is seeking acceptance from the public, that is all it is. Go do all you business and leave us with us.

      March 10, 2016

      I quite agree it is wrong. And these people need to understand that even though they consent and partake in the act in the privacy of their homes it is still wrong. He asks the question whether the committee denied it because the bible said so. Yes it was denied because the bible said so. We created laws, governments created laws which was not guided by the teachings and commandments of God. All those who disobeys God’s Laws will face the wrath of God. Remember God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of buggery and God has not changed his law against that. So Miri whoever can continue to defy God’s law. What a pity, they say they are church people and God fearing. I am so afraid for Dominica, this world is really coming to an end soon. The writing is sooooo much on the walls.
