Opposition Senator, Isaac Baptiste, has suggested removing the laws against buggery which are on the books in Dominica.

Speaking in parliament during debate on amendments to the Sexual Offences Act, he stated the laws are not in keeping with international movements, can impact the island’s tourism sector and are hypocritical if they are based on the bible since the bible condemns other actions such as adultery.

“We must be real, we have to be consistent, we cannot be hypocritical,” he argued. “I am suggesting that the continued criminalization of buggery, as it is now provided for to the extent that the court can subject that person to psychiatric observation and treatment, is not consistent with what happening internationally.”

He is of the opinion that the laws can affect Dominica’s tourism industry.

“Here it is we are promoting tourism, we have no problem with the gay ships coming in,” he noted. “I have a hotel facility, I have seen male couples come in, I can see they are intimate but with this legislation, do I call the police when they go into their hotel room and tell them I suggest that there is a criminal activity taking place there?”

Baptiste remarked that if the rationale for the laws is based on the bible, it is hypocritical since the bible condemns other actions such as fornication and adultery.

“I am saying that if the argument is based on biblical grounds then I am saying we are also hypocritical because the bible condemns fornication, the bible condemns adultery, the bible condemns these kinds of behavior, so why are selective in terms of buggery?” he queried.

He said in this day and age he has a problem with legislating what people do in private, although he pointed out that those involved in such practice do it publicly or are involved in rape, they should be imprisoned.

In 2013, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit made it clear that buggery laws on the books in Dominica will not be repealed pointing out that he has not heard any ‘compelling’ argument to support such move.

Amendments to the Sexual Offences Act were approved by parliament.

    Everyone forgets the mural depicting Europeans bringing slaves AND Christianity ashore and forcing everyone to be Christian yet here we are, shoving Christianity down our own throats… Congratulations, you plated yourselves.

    If you are for Dominica, you are for ALL Dominicans, regardless of their sex or gender.
    The only reason you are so afraid of buggery is because white settlers from Europe came and force-fed Christianity down your ancestors’ throats. You would not be Christians today if this did not happen. Many of us are of Igbo descent, where homosexuality and transgender identity were not “sins”. In fact, these things were celebrated as only two of many aspects of humanity. The bible was written 2000+ years ago and even the pope is pro-homosexual now. Keep talking assery and see where that gets you, because i you truly believe in God, you will know that only God can judge, and that the state of Dominica has no stake in judging a gay person or a transgender person.

    Leviticus 18:22 – You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.

    Heb13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.

    Rom1:27 In 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.

    Jude 1:7 In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual

    immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.

    Lev 1:22 Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.

    Lev 1:13 ‘If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done
    what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

  5. Buggery is Fine
    October 26, 2016

    We all know that buggery is a sport in Dominica and is practiced widely in the homosexual community on the island. We have Dominican celebrities who are gay and some of them are even married. So what do you think they do when they meet their lovers, shake hands?

    So let’s stop this hypocrisy and go with the Senator. Let’s legalise buggery. This will bring a great boost to our tourist industry and gay cruise ships will once more start to come to us with full confidence that they can practice their anal arts on the island without being prosecuted.

    Well done Senator.

    This man is a sick individual and you should be ashamed of yourself as a senator to say such profanity. Is because you know you’re doing this bougary act that’s why you would want it to be legalized and also its because you’re doing your nastiness in this hotel that’s why you wanna uphold this nonsense but let me tell you all batty man haffie burn in hell!!!

    So this is a highly educated leader,a law maker in Dominica suggesting that the best solution for an evil sin..is implement more sin to overcome more sin!!! And even have the gaul to make comparisons of other sins….wow this one is head spinner..I thought our jobs was to pick up our crosses and follow Christ…in essence this man is asking that we should pick up sticks and mix for financial gains..in other words sell our soul to heck with it……right Baptist you go this road you alone…that is your privacy

    I don’t think that one religious has the right to hijack other religious beliefs and criminalize private consensual behavior.

    From the Episcopalian Church we find the following:

    The four gospels are the most important part of the Bible. It is significant that Jesus never addressed homosexuality. However, Jesus spent a great of time ministering to those considered outcasts by the society and religious leaders of his day.

    Episcopalians have historically looked to three sources of spiritual authority–scripture, tradition, and reason. In the past, the Bible has been used to justify slavery and the domination of women.

    In 1976 the General Convention of the Episcopal Church passed the following resolutions…

    Resolved, that it is the sense of this General Convention that homosexual persons are children of God and have a full and equal claim with all other persons upon the love, acceptance, and pastoral concern and care of the Church.

    I think a discussion on the decriminalization of marijuana is more worthwhile than buggery.

  10. Princess Natari

    I agree that fornication and adultery are sinful acts and against the commandments of God but homosexual behavior is referred to as being an “abomination” unto God that is because it is abhorrent, unnatural and behavior that puts man lower than the ANIMALS. It defies logic and the purpose of sex in humans and mating in animals is to provide continuity for life. That is why it is wrong. The thing that is even most disgusting and beyond my understanding is why those who marry their own kind want to turn around and adopt children. Children can only be born from a sperm and egg not 2 eggs or 2 sperm cells.

    I do not care on which side of the political divide you fall but I am passionate about this topic as it is not about our norms and culture and what is socially or internationally accepted. It is about God’s place in our lives and society and I vehemently condemn it, PERIOD!

    Interesting arguments by Senator Baptiste. I recall the late Hon. John Fabien, Minister for Heath, expressing his support for a re-look at the legislation also. What many may not know is that the BIG wigs in the DHTA are in full support for decriminalising buggery. I believe we should ask the DHTA for its view on the matter.

Mister seeing too much of that in his hotel (according to him) and now has developed a soft spot for that activity. I need to hear Lennox and the UWP’s stance on this issue. I know short Issac from Roseau Central would never support that….

    i think u all are very biased as is usually d case in this man” s argument concerning buggery and the said laws. i accept that he is wrong to seek to have them removed since buggery is a sin like u all pointed out before God. but u should b honest enough also t admit that he is right to say that if it should be judged then every other form of sexual sin outside of marriiage should also be equally judged. so then i think instead of outrightly condemning him u all should rather say that both ADULTERY AND FORNICATION should also b given equal judgement and consideration by the LAW. for those of u ill informed of BIBLICAL SEXUAL HISTORY, FORNICATION AND ADULTERY were also punishable by law through STONING TO DEATH. OK? and those of u who are practicing fornication or adultery should SHUT UP and remain silent in this matter. SIN CANNOT JUDGE SIN. TRUE JUSTICE is a balance of the scale based on RIGHTEOUSNESS and not on a set of JUDGMENTAL opinions propelled by IGNORANCE or SINNERS THEMSELF

    I have ask Honorable Senator Baptiste this:
    1. Aren’t you the same one who took nasty photos of Roseau after carnival celebrations and posted them online stating that Dominica is a garbage dump?
    2. Didn’t that affect tourism?
    3. You’re now asking the Government to repeal this law, because you don’t want it to negatively affect tourists, who may visit the island. Why is it that you only now realize that certain actions affect the industry?
    4. Did it just dawn on you that you have a hotel and you absolutely need to portray a positive image of the island or else?
    5. Shame on you Honorable Senator Baptiste! You and people who you support must understand that when we destroy Dominica for cheap political points, everybody is affected!

  17. madam la
    October 26, 2016

    Mr. Baptiste – there is a difference between fornication/adultery and Homosexuality. Fornication and Adultery do not go against reproduction or creation. God told man and woman to procreate. Homosexuality is anti- procreation and it is against God plan for continuity. Remember that the Devil come to steal, kill and destroy and God/Jesus said – He came that we may life and have it more abundantly. If you look at the effect of homosexuality on family life – it is more destructive in relation to procreation than fornication and adultery. If you are God fearing than you would never advocate something that makes fun at creation and the God in us. I am disappointed in you.

    I do acknowledge that the sin of fornication and adultery is wrong but the diabolical (ness) of homosexuality is far more destructive. You should be advocating righteousness – Let God be true and every man a lier

      MADAM LA i think u are dangerously mistaken t say that homosexuality is having a bigger disastrous effect on family life than fornication or adultery. if u really believe so then ask a professional psychologist or counselor and u will b shocked and amazed t discover that most if not all our young men and women on drugs today and various other crimes is due to lack of father figure in d home. AND Y?????? BECAUSE FORNICATION IS SO FREE AND INDEPENDENT. i didnt have a father because of fornication ok? and then these unhappy illdisciplined young men especially become criminals and thieves and so on. if fornication was equally punished by law as homosexuality then alot of our young girls who are now miserable with unwanted kids would not have had them now. PLEASE LETS STOP TWISTING GOD WORD TO SATISFY OUR OWN SELFISH DESIRES AND JUST CONDEMN ALL SIS AS SIN AND SYOP TRYING TO MAKE ANY WICKED EXCUSES ABOUT PROCREATION AND WHATNOT. SIN IS SIN. U ARE EITHER WITH GOD OR NOT. NO OTHER WAY OK!!!!

      MADAM LA, I am the Oracle. There is no such thing as BIG SIN and little sin! Homosexuality is not worse than fornication and adultery. I find your point on the sinfulness of homosexuality to be interesting. You built your case on God’s command to man to “reproduce or procreate”. One of the conclusions of your argument would be that to remain single is a sin too, since being single goes against reproduction.

      • Tell the Truth
        October 26, 2016

        They are all sins but they are not one and the same sins. Therefore, you cannot say those sins are same. They are not! It is as clear as ice. Do you comprehend that?
        People will be punished based on their sins, what they did. It means, how much.
        Likewise, people will be rewarded based on what they did. They never receive the identical award. There are some who stand out, others, mediocre and some not at all.

      • October 27, 2016

        You are wrong about this.

        Fornication, adultery, and homosexuality are ALL sins. There are passages of scripture where they are all condemned in the same verses such as 1 Corinthians 6:9,10.

        Homosexuality is the most serious of the three.

        (a) Homosexuality is a sin against nature. Romans 1:26,27.

        (b) Homosexuality is a sin against the model or blueprint God has given us for marriage. Genesis 2:24 with Matthew 19:4-6.

        (c) God showed His displeasure by destroying at least four cities because of their homosexuality and said this was meant to be an “example” to those who would later follow in
        this same sin. Genesis 19:1-25 with Jude vs. 7.

        It is not too much for godly citizens and tax payers to want a government that honors God by handing down laws that echo the laws of God. It is wise for a government to side with righteousness if they want to keep their nation under God’s protection.

        Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill.

      • October 27, 2016

        Your last sentence is not correct. It is a ridiculous argument used by desperate people who have no understanding of the Bible.

        The command to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28) was spoken to a husband and wife, and later to four men and their wives. This command was not given to single people or same gender “couples”.

        Under normal circumstances this is God’s plan for reproduction and the continuity of the race.
        However it is obvious in the scriptures and from our own observation there are married couples who are not able to conceive. There are people who do not marry for various reasons. The Bible
        shows that some are called to a single life so they can devote their time to serving God. God does not lay upon any of these the obligation to reproduce.

        “There is no such thing as a BIG SIN and a little sin!” :?: :?: :?: Do you think shooting a man dead is no worse than giving him a black eye? Or burning a house down is no worse than smashing one of the…

      Contraceptives are against the law of procreation. Why are those allowed? Or do you want to go the route of the catholic church (where they can apply that at least) and ban those wholesale. Why don’t we talk about how many people have died from AIDS in africa because of the church’s preaching against the use of protection.

    so just because we mountainous you want to put the Brokeback Mountain law on us.

    • October 27, 2016

      No! They want to put the law of God upon you.

      However the Bible says we have all broken that law “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” (James 2:10) It says “For all have sinned , and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

      This is why every one of us personally must believe (trust) what Christ did for us on the cross to put our sins away. John 3:16, Romans 5:6-9 with 1 John 1:7. We must individually receive Christ as our personal Savior. John 1:11,12 with Revelation 3:20.

      BELIEVE! RECEIVE! Please read the above paragraph again. Get your Bible and find the scripture verses. Read them for yourself and act upon them.

      You can be saved NOW according to 2 Corinthians 6:2 :!: Better still you can KNOW you are saved according to 1 John 5:13 :!:

    October 26, 2016

    People around the world face violence and inequality—and sometimes torture, even execution—because of who they love, how they look, or who they are. Sexual orientation and gender identity are integral aspects of our selves and should never lead to discrimination or abuse. Human Rights Watch works for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender peoples’ rights, and with activists representing a multiplicity of identities and issues. We document and expose abuses based on sexual orientation and gender identity worldwide, including torture, killing and executions, arrests under unjust laws, unequal treatment, censorship, medical abuses, discrimination in health and jobs and housing, domestic violence, abuses against children, and denial of family rights and recognition. We advocate for laws and policies that will protect everyone’s dignity. We work for a world where all people can enjoy their rights fully.

      It is not a human right or human right issue for two men to get married; likewise two women. They have the right to do as they please, having a relationship with a same sex partner. Today, there is no Law against that. When they expect everyone to approve, applaud and encourage them, this is another matter. It will never happen. They complain that we force our beliefs on them. What about they doing the same to us?
      Since the government succumbed to interest groups and some politicians who are also gays and lesbians, their so-called rights must be protected by legislation. However, they cannot go in public, on a normal day/night and carry-on as if they are in the confines of their homes. You should know what I mean.
      They cannot force themselves on another without consent. It will be rape.
      The only right people in general have, is fair employment, housing, and being served wherever they go, stores or restaurants, etc.

      The Commonwealth of Dominica has laws by which the people on the island are judged.

      If I decide I don’t believe in the government is it O.K. if I ignore or break the law? Well, I would soon find out.

      But I have my rights. Who is going to tell me how fast I can drive MY car through the city? Of course I am getting ridiculous.

      Now listen to me.

      Almighty God has a law. HE has given us commandments to live by. Someday we will all stand before Him.

      You have absolutely no “rights” except what the creator, lawgiver, and judge of the universe has given you, and they are not “rights” they are privileges. You have no “right” to break the least of God’s laws.

      Much of this talk about “human rights” is sheer nonsense.

    • October 27, 2016

      Marijuana has never made any nation a better place to live and raise children.

      The weed is not even fully legal in Canada but already we have caught people DUI – driving under the influence. Our police have caution us that this is as bad as drinking and driving.

      Tourists who chose to vacation in a country because it has an open market for marijuana or any other drug are not people you would want to leave your children with. Marijuana tourism brings its own problems. Some of these people leave more behind than their money.

      Those who advocate for marijuana remind us of all the nations that have decriminalized the weed. These same nations also legalized tobacco because their (then) governments could see no potential dangers in tobacco smoking. Now we scientifically know 50% of all regular tobacco smokers WILL die from a disease caused by that habit.

    Isaac, you are a pioneer for bringing this point with such logical argument,but it will take time and probably will have to be induced from external pressures into the heads of Dominicans, that Government is not required to legislate and criminalize consenting adults personal choices, in so far as personal well-being is not contravened.

      They have an ulterior motive, just as when the governments of those countries recognized same sex partners and so-called same sex marriage. Today, they receive same spousal benefits and adopt children. They had their plans.
      Hilary Clinton said the Church must change and democratize. It is sickening. It shows how godless she is. This means to marry same sex partners. these people forget that the Church and governments are two different entities. This is, God and the government.

      They watch too much TV. These groups are prodding them on and probably offering money to propagate their cause. The same applies for “Gender Affairs.”
      Planned Parenthood is another one, making people believe that they are “planning parenthood” when they offer contraceptives and abortions, suppressing babies from being born.
      I bet they accepted this without knowing what lies beneath. They should do a research about them,
      D/cans must also listen to the Religious and Secular News.
      Obama and his HHS Mandate wants all employers including Christian ones to incorporate the morning after pill, contraceptive pills and sterilization in their insurance policies. If they do not comply, they will be charged approximately $2,500 per day. Add this up to one month and a year.

        If you properly researched PLANNED PARENTHOOD you would see what an wicked ungodly organization it is.

        It started as an organization to promote abortion. It continues with abortion high on its agenda.

        But what many people don’t know is PLANNED PARENTHOOD is diabolically racist. Their intention was and is to promote abortion and other forms of birth control in black communities. They want to slow down the growth of Black America by preventing the birth of black babies.

        I was shocked and saddened to learn that they had been accepted in a black Caribbean Catholic nation.

        If abortion is illegal they cannot do abortions. But they will hire capable black people to work for them, and provide practical help for poor families to increase credibility while they promote
        legal methods of birth control. Don’t expect them not to work towards the legalization of abortion in any way they can because they want to ultimately open abortion clinics.

      A US Catholic Bishop went to Court for the purpose of free religious speech. The government wants to muzzle Christian churches from speaking against same sex relationships and marriage.
      They want to do their thing and the Church is not allowed to say a thing. They want the church to marry them. These people have gone far in their demands and expectation. One thing I know God will never bless such types of union which are an abomination.
      The persecution of Christian churches is alive and well in the US. This is the commencement.

      It should be Holy Bible. When I commenced taking a course, the first thing the Theologian told us was, call it Holy Bible; not Bible. Ever since I do my utmost to call It just that.
      We should not only say Bible but Holy Bible.
      As a Catholic we should also say Holy Mass; not Mass. Mass is the gathering, of the congregation – in attendance..

If these news stories stand out to you it’s because that is what you’re looking for. It’s seems all this people are so disgusted about homosexuality that they have this unnatural obsession with it.

      It is upsetting to see that. Whenever they have their gay pride parade in Toronto, I boycott the News for the entire weekend including Monday when the Media no longer show it on TV.
      We who disapprove must continue to do so. We must unite about this. It is an abomination to God and a poor example for the youths. However, without harming anyone of them. This, God will not approve of.
      Our Lord Jesus Christ said: “Vengeance is mine! I will repay!
      As human beings, one to another, we do not wish them harm. We do not hurt them. As difficult as it is, we must exercise patience. We leave the punishment to God.
      We must also pray for them that God might convert them. God expects that of us,to pray for one another, whoever they are. A simple prayer will do. “He knows what to do and He knows when.” These are a title/words of a religious song.

    The ignorance in DA continues. Homosexuality and everything that goes with it as well as heterosexuality cross lines. What business is it of the governments what people do privately as long as they are not violating someone against their will or taking advantage of children? There are a lot of perverted people on this planet and it starts at the top. Anyone who has watched animals, knows that they do it with either sex. People like to be judgmental of others though jealousy may enter into it also. The Bible was written by man, not the creator(s) of man.

    Dominica is a Christian Sovereign Nation;
    There should be no Adultery, Fornication, Buggery, Pedophilia in Dominica. All of them are Sin. How many unmarried girls and women in Dominica having sex with Tom, Dick and Harry is a style now.

    New legislation
    Mothers who have children out of wed lock will be fined 10,000
    Fathers who have children out of wed lock will be fined 10,000
    Failure to do so will result in 5 years imprisonment or must be married to the child’s mother

    The sentence for committing Adultery is 10 years imprisonment or pay a fine of 20, 000
    Sex workers in Dominica if caught will be charged 20,000 and the male counterpart will be charged 30,000 or 10 years imprisonment
    Those caught in the act of Buggery will be charged 10,000 or 10 years imprisonment

      I totally agree with you. There should be fines against all kinds of sexual sins as illustrated in the bible; that should also include fines for the use of contraceptives which goes against procreation. Why should only gay people be seen as the ones who are going against procreation? We also need fines for those who have abortions, and those who perform abortions- why should anyone be spared? While we’re at it, be sure that there are fines for any straight couples whenever they do not become pregnant when they have sex. If sex is for procreation, they they should not derive any pleasure from sexual activity. Set up security cameras in people’s bedrooms to check on their private activities. Enough of all these abominations. In fact, have all Dominicans go live in convents like nuns, and the men can go live in huts in the hills all by themselves.

        In addition, there must be fines for anyone caught masturbating; anyone caught staring at the opposite sex; anyone caught watching sex movies; anyone caught making sweet eyes at someone else. Fines for anything that could lead to sexual activity; even fines for sexual thoughts. I propose the NO SEX country. Enough is enough!!! Finally a fine for anyone who complains about their sexual frustration as a result of these new laws on the books. Now you will understand the power of our government. We will legislate not only your sexual orientation, but your sexual behavior and sexual thoughts. That’s what you get for denigrating people’s sexual orientation and being so ill informed about the core of someone’s being. You are so fixated on the physical nature of same sex relationships that you fail to put the time and effort in building your own happy and healthy relationships of love and respect. I support the Senator – get this law off the books replaced with a ban on sex.

    Seems like Sodom and Gomorrah is cool for you all to raise your children and live your lives.

    • Let me tell you something; and this is not verbatim to the Bible, but I believe there is a scripture which said “be among them, but do not be like them.” I am a Dominica born American, I live in America, however, I do not have to believe in something which God condemned.

      I am not disoriented, in that I am not a Bull-popper (homosexual) ” aunty-man,” so I am not concern whether or not homosexuality is legal in America. The people who indulge in that learnt behavior, have to give account for the life they live to their creator. I have no hate in my heart, I cannot tell anyone what to d with life, what I d no is I am a believer in God Jehovah and Jesus Christ, and if the bible which is the written word of God condemned homosexuality, and homosexuals, I am in no position to support it.

      The population of America is aging, to me there are less youth in the country, could it be because so many thousands of men are sleeping with men; caused a lack of human reproduction. In a small…

    • Continue:

      In a small place like Dominica, where there are so many Bull-poppers, if government legalize it younger boys, and men will change over. So, there will not be enough men to serve the few women who have no interest in lesbianism!

      And there will be no more birth! Now our population is far less than seventy thousand people; and when you have villages where one child was born in one year, that is an example of what will happen if Drigo have his way. I would hope that by the time next election, the leaders of the UWP will not allow that guy to run on a UWP ticket again, because such people are taboo!

      It is my opinion, that there are always going to be homosexuals, and lesbian, what they do in the privacy of their house is their business, but I don’t think that we have to appreciate and tolerate them by legalizing their act. America, will suffer for this, in the interim, because the government has defied God!

    “I am saying that if the argument is based on biblical grounds then I am saying we are also hypocritical”

    Mr. Baptiste Sir, what on Earth are you calling for? Are you saying that you need the consent of the Bible to see how dirty, nasty, and disgusting, is the conduct of homosexuality?

    I don’t think no one is saying that man doesn’t commit other sins–and yes there is much too many different kinds of sins, in this world –but God has given mankind the privilege of sincere repentance, once he does so his record of sinful conducts is washed white by the Blood of Christ Jesus. That was the reason for His suffering, bleeding, and dying.

    Also no one should be encouraging sinful behavior –regardless of its nature –and every one is accountable to God, not man, for their daily attitude and conduct. The same goes for those of homosexuals, especially that their sin is an extreme abomination in the sight of the Holy God of Heaven.

    • October 25, 2016

      But calling by for the Law against this kind of sin, to be removed from the Book of Law, in Dominica, you are doing nothing but encouraging that sin–you should be ashamed of yourself.

      I am sure that the Law is not saying that you should call the police to report two people who are in their bedroom–you don’t know for sure what is happening there, and it is nobody’s business.

      But it is not fear for those people to call to society to simply accept their nasty conducts, that is why the Law should remain, so to keep those people on a tight rope. In other words homosexuality is a behavior which belong behind closed doors–in any environment, the majority of us wants nothing to do with it.

Our problem as an African race is that we have adopted the lifestyles of these people and we behave worse than them sometimes. It is a shame that you would come out publicly with such a suggestion. What do you want to turn Dominica into? Why is it that we have to continue following and doing things like these other countries? Why can’t have our own businesses?

    Why are you interested in wanting it off the books?
    This same sex relationship poses a huge problem. Imagine booking a fare and room in the name of Mr. John Doe and Mrs. Al John. This is another reason why gender affairs is instituted so that they do not have to be called Mr. and Mrs. They will book a fare and room in the names of John Doe and Al John, husband and wife. Either way, oh my!
    If they only use names, it cannot be determined if they are in a same sex relationship and are so-called married unless they commence acting up as lovers in public and sometimes worst than heterosexual couples.
    Where does the Holy Bible, the Word of the Lord, fit into this and saying it is hypocritical. Even though it is scrapped, it is still a sin. Disobeying what is contained in the Holy Bible is a mortal/grievous sin as fornication and adultery.
    You are comparing two that are practiced and are in the Holy Bible. Buggery is also in the Holy Bible. It is sodomy.

    In bygone years the acts were punishable. The teaching is disregarded but they are not arrested; similar to this buggery. The difference, the latter is on the books. If they rape minors and are caught, then they will be arrested.
    When last was anyone who practiced it arrested and charged? It is an old Law and it should remain as is. If it is taken off, then there will be a demand to recognize and legislate their so-called marriage.
    Buggery is Sodomy. Pertaining to if they are tourists, this is no argument to scrap that Law. D/ca has not legislated same sex relationships. These people practice it. Some live together and some hide their practice
    Sensible people should know there are things people do in public and there are things they do not do; should refrain from doing. People should keep that type of emotion out of the public domain. If they were in some other countries, they would also be arrested. This applies to heterosexual couples..

    Recall when those men on the cruise ship commenced making out on the ship in public for all to see. It was scandalous.
    You should not speculate whatever people do in the confines of a hotel bedroom. If they are welcomed in D/ca, they cannot be refused a room. In this case, what they do in the room is no one’s business.
    What do you plan to tell them should they visit D/ca and buggery is off the books? It is OK. Buggery is no longer on the books and you can act in a scandalous manner, stand on the street, kissing, hugging and rubbing on each other; the same on your hotel premises and on the beach?
    Those who are in same sex relationships should understand that when they travel to another country they should govern themselves respectfully and that they are not in the confines of their house/bedroom..

      So what are you really saying? We should just keep a useless law that we can’t even enforce? You cannot engage in certain acts out in public even as a straight person, this is referred to as gross public indecency. No person in their right mind would do that, gay or straight. They were right in arresting those men on the ship because they were committing indecent acts of a sexual nature in public view. That’s different. Even if they were a straight couple they would still have to be arrested, though somehow I doubt that they would have been.

      So basically we have an official law on the books that is a testament to the hypocrisy of our culture. Considering how law and law enforcement itself is so rife with hypocrisy it’s somehow fitting.

Straight couples participate in that too and the trend is increasing as many types of sexual perversion are becoming more mainstream. If two people are charged with this crime how do you judge the evidence? How do you really go into detail to explain exactly how they broke the law? Can you imagine a court case outlining the details of the act to prove that it was such an act and could not have been something else that was wrongfully misconstrued as the act in question?

    It’s pretty ridiculous to be honest. It’s an ancient relic of our colonial past. And whereas they have done away with it and moved on we can’t seem to follow them (and the rest of the civilized world) on that.

    What interest do you have in that; shall I ask if you are also disoriented why yo want to scrap the law.

    ‘he stated the laws are not in keeping with international movements, can impact the island’s tourism sector’ – Why should Dominica or any other country do something just because another countries does? Aren’t they all separate countries with their own governments with their own brains? This is the problem with many countries politicians, if they see a country like the USA change something, they love to follow. Why? I really don’t understand that. As far as it ‘can impact the island’s tourism sector’, that’s also a bunch of nonsense. The reason that tourism in Dominica is terrible is because there really isn’t anything in Dominica, especially to attract tourists to go there. Cinema? Arcade? Casino? Sport arenas? Tennis courts? Football pitch? Leisure centres? Shopping mall? Etc. I could keep going. And Dominica not having an international airport doesn’t help either.

    • Dominican Bwoi

      Roseau, the capital, isn’t even nice if you want to attract tourists, especially compared to many other capitals of the world. When people travel to different countries, a lot of them visit the capital city but look at Roseau, it’s a shambles. If Dominica was a country that many batty boys visited then I’d understand that ‘impact the island’s tourism sector’ comment but that isn’t even the case. Tourism is terrible because of the people in charge, it’s that simple. Also, that whole ‘Nature Island’ thing is just holding Dominica back in my opinion. Don’t want to build this or that because of nature, what a whole leap of nonsense.

      And lastly, ‘Skerrit made it clear that buggery laws on the books in Dominica will not be repealed pointing out that he has not heard any ‘compelling’ argument to support such move.’ For once, I actually have to agree with what the man said.

      I hope when you die it will be democracy to. I’m pretty sure hell will not refuse you. Adultery, fornication, lying is sin . There is no big or small sin. However, God calls for us to repent from them all including homosexuality. Just because it has become the norm doesn’t mean it is right. Everyman will face judgment after death. Sadly we think that we will always be alive and never die or we will never die in our sins. It has happened time and time again. People refuse Christ, live their lives and at the end think they are going to heaven. My sheep knows my voice says the Lord. God is light and darkness is not appealing to him. Any sin we commit is not excusable.

  51. October 25, 2016

    The Bible does indeed forbid fornication and adultery just as it forbids homosexuality. All three of these acts are sins. The Bible says so (1 Corinthians 6:9,10), and the Christian church teaches this. For this reason for centuries the nations with a Christian heritage have had laws forbidding homosexuality.

    However it has not always been possible to have laws forbidding all sexual sins including fornication and adultery. We cannot always know who is committing these sins, or when, or where. Beside we don’t have enough police officers to reign them in, or big enough jails. Governments have had to let the church address sin, while they wrestle with crime.

    Nations have had laws against homosexuality because it is a sin against nature according to Romans 1:26,27. It strikes against God’s model for marriage which is one man and one woman united for life according to Matthew 19:4-6. Biblical marriage is the cornerstone of civilized society.

    • October 25, 2016

      In recent years a significant number of nations have changed with many of them dropping their anti-buggery laws, etc. With this kind of pressure being put upon politicians it should not be surprising to see more governments buckle.

      The large number of nations that have legalized same sex “marriage” is NOT a sign of God’s approval.

      In past history God has destroyed cities because of this sin. Read Genesis 19:1-25 with Jude vs. 7. Many believe the sin of homosexuality contributed to the fall of ancient Greece and Rome.

      It is not for religious reasons alone we oppose homosexuality.

      Homosexuals have a higher rate of AIDS and contribute more to the spread of AIDS.

      They have more mental health issues including anger and violence.

      They have a higher rate of alcoholism, a higher suicide rate, and a shorter life span.

      In the absence of a flesh and blood family they suffer more from loneliness in their senior years.

        1 Corinthians 6:9,10
        1 Timothy 1:9,10
        Jude vs. 7

        Luke 17:34-35 is not referring to homosexuality or implying that a sexual relationship is involved. In these verses Christ is describing the end of the age. The points He is making are (1) both men and women will be taken by surprise and caught unprepared, and (2) all the world will be impacted. One scene is during the night, and the other is during the day, because it is showing us different parts of the earth.

        To interpret Luke 17:34-35 differently would be to show a disregard for the context and ignore many other scriptures. This is not how we approach the science of Biblical interpretation known as hermeneutics. The interpretation Dr. Mandela is offering us is contrary to the way the church has understood this passage for the past 2,000 years.

    It is about time that someone had the courage to say something about this outdated law. Even our colonial masters that gave us this archaic law have abolished it. We are holding on to it. I guess we prefer molestation of children, adultery, abuse etc. What consenting adults do is their own business. Congrats senator for moving to the 21th century.

    You are not going to score any political points with this Hon. Baptiste. I don’t know when was the last time anyone was ever arrested and charged for this offense in Dominica, so as a politician, leave it alone and do not risk losing votes.

    “he noted. “I have a hotel facility, I have seen male couples come in, I can see they are intimate but with this legislation, do I call the police when they go into their hotel room and tell them I suggest that there is a criminal activity taking place there?” The basic of his arguement is loss of personal financial profits based on the law. His arguement “I am saying that if the argument is based on biblical grounds then I am saying we are also hypocritical because the bible condemns fornication, the bible condemns adultery, the bible condemns these kinds of behavior, so why are selective in terms of buggery?”, is a valid one. Personally I do not believe that Dominica should legalise buggery especially not on the notion that “it is happenning internationally.”

    One word for what Isaac is saying – Utter rubbish!!!

    Aye Isaac, the Bible condemns homosexuality just as it condemns adultery and fornication. At least you ain’t denying that. However, you don’t see fornicators and adulterers fighting for ‘their rights’ and trying to hijack the legal and economic systems of the world to justify and push their wrongdoing on society as the perverted homosexual movement does.

    You don’t see adulterers and fornicators pushing for their practices to be taught to young kids as the perverted homosexual movement does.

    Aye Lennox, please remove this Isaac fella from the UWP ranks IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!! If a man can utter such blatant nonsense, one must question his judgement & reasoning ability on other matters.

    P.S. – The UWP needs to immediately state its stance on homosexuality. Roosevelt has stated his government’s position. The UWP must publicly state its position on homosexuality and the UWP had better be against it.

      Thanks a lot. You made a lot of sense in your entire comment. I am a UWP supporter, but I’m sure not going to support buggery, so they better get it straight.

    Are you real. Because it is international it does not make it culturally acceptable in Dominica.

      If tourists come to Dominica because buggery is readily available it doesn’t say much about either Dominica or the people who visit it.

      If marijuana is decriminalized and therefore easier to obtain and becomes a cannabis mecca for tourists imagine the top of the line visitors you will have. (I am being sarcastic.)

      It will hardly become a vacation land to recommend to families.

      Dominica has enough problems without debasing it any more. It is time to work at improving its image and make it the pearl of the Caribbean it is capable of becoming.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill.

      Nadia:

      You are absolutely correct.

      Internationally speaking there are gross things in some of these countries you would not want in Dominica. We should never judge a practice or evaluate an activity by asking “What are other nations doing?” We should base our decision on what the Word of God (the Bible) says about the matter. If we want to be a people blessed by God we must bring ourselves under HIS rule.

      “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to THIS word, it is because there is no light in them.” (Isaiah 8:20)

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill.

    So are tourists travelling to Dominica for buggery?

    I hope that this man is not encouraging tourists to gather in Dominica fir buggery sessions.

      Buggery is clinically proven to be beneficial for one’s health. Name me one homosexual who has problems with constipation? Not one suffers from this uncomfortable ailment.

      Indeed, buggerers tend to be high-class members of society. Take Oscar Wilde, top players in world-wide football teams; Einstein, Gen. Montgomery, Alexander the Great; several outstanding members of the UK parliament; most EU Commissioners. The list goes on and on.

      If all these outstanding people make buggery their choice expression of love, legalise it I say.

      Personally, I enjoy the exercise, but do not revel in the rather extensive cleaning up after each session with my boyfriend and his friends.
