Retiring DPPA head wants homosexuality decriminalized

A society that accepts people with different sexual orientations is among dreams that the outgoing head of the Dominica Planned Parenthood Association (DPPA) wants to see become a reality in the future.

Willie Fevrier, who served as the Executive Director of the DPPA, is retiring after over two decades of service.

His stint ended on June 30th, two months short of 25 years.

He said at a press conference on Wednesday that he hopes to see homosexuality decriminalized in Dominica pointing out that it should not be a crime if two consenting adults, in the privacy of their homes, carry on sexual activity.

“I don’t see why that should be a crime. It may be immoral for those of us who are Christians but we cannot equate the two,” he said.

He said he is retiring at a time when society is discriminating against people with different sexual orientations, a situation which he said must be addressed.

“People tend to discriminate against people of a different sexual orientation and that is of a major concern to me. I think the human species is very diverse, we have different kinds of people and as a society I think we should be more caring, more tolerant to the people different from us…” he said.

Fevrier said instead of a being homophobic, he wants to see Dominica transformed into a more “understanding and tolerant” society.

“That is a big concern for me. We should be more understanding to the nature of the human being and I don’t think people are getting this message,” he said.

The outgoing Executive Director said will continue to work behind the scenes to address the situation.

“Even if I am on my way out, I will still be an advocate for the rights of people to exercise their sexuality without fear. No two people are the same. This is no reason to discriminate against them even if they are of a different sexual orientation,” Fevrier said further.

He said too much emphasis is being placed on male homosexuals in Dominica.

“There are females as well and no one is talking about that,” he said.

    There is no big sin or little sin. In the eyes of God sin is sin. Fornication, adultery, lying, stealing, covetousness, homosexuality, murder yet still we turn a blind eyes to the “small sins” everyday. Really, why hide behind the bible, the same bible tells us to love. Jesus who died, who we called our Lord and Saviour lived by example. Remember the woman at the well with 5 husbands; did he condemn? What about the woman caught in adultery? He who is without sin cast the first stone was his words to the crowd. If you have ever told a lie, stole, murdered, fornicated, covet, lusted etc….means you cannot condemn someone else. The bible states we have all fallen short of the glory of God and for that he sent his son to redeem (buy back) from the Satan. He loved us so much that he died for us yet still we cannot show the same love to the least of our brothers and sisters. Homosexuals don’t need condemnation they need to be shown the love of God. If you imprison someone for being a homosexual shouldn’t you do the same to the many men and women who commit adultery in Dominica, men who believe its okay to have a wife and a girlfriend? Shouldn’t the women who believe that a piece of a man is better than no man at all because she is fornicating with her neighbors husband be criminalized for her actions? In all honesty some of the very ones who are condemning homosexuals and Mr Fevrier falls into the category of fornicating with their neighbors/friends husband; some of us a guilty of what we consider petty sin of stealing, lying, cheating. Meanwhile, some of the voices opposed of Mr Fevrier stance are committing sin against their family members’ every day. What about the father having sexual relationship with his daughter every day, yet still he thinks homosexuality should be criminalized. News flash to you sir what you are doing to your daughter is equivalent to what you are condemning. In all reality starting with me I cannot condemn another man for his sin because in all reality I have been guilty of so many sins…as a Christian I have been covetous of my neighbor, I have slept with my neighbors husband, I have lied, stole, and the list goes on and to top it all I have been a victim of incest. What I do know is that I have found forgiveness in Jesus Christ and wouldn’t want to condemn my neighbors because God loved me so much that he sent his son to die that I would become the righteousness of God. My plea to everyone is to love your neighbor as yourself; just as Jesus loves us all.

    the rectum {anus } is part of the digestive system it helps control feces (poop, or waste) the rectum is join at a set of circular muscles call sphincters. The sphincters control is the greatest challenge in treating anal cancer you go there you destroy the anatomy God has created, that’s why many of those gets rectum cancer, I have seem this due to my medical field,

    @polo July 18, 2013 “people should have right to leave their life the way they want to, once they are hurting anyone else” Those are your words here–not mine

    But that is the flaw of most human beings in existence today–even some of those who claim to be Christians, must worst for those who wont believe in the Living God, through Jesus Christ.

    You people are claiming Life, wanting to live your Life the way you want; the truth is that you have no Life in you–otherwise you could not deny God’s Word in the Holy Bible, and you would be living by the guidance of His Holy Spirit–He is against the conducts of homosexual, and I am sure of it–your attitude and conducts as well.

    For according the Man, God’s Person of Love, Jesus Christ: “It is the Spirit” that gives Life the flesh profits nothing”! He continued, and said to us who believe: “The Words which I speak are Spirit and they are Life–I write it with a capital “L” because I know of its significance–so this Billy Graham.

    And so those people like you, who choose to exist in this world the way they want, they are truly not hurting anyone.

    But the time is coming when they will know the agony of death, because that is what they chose, by their privilege of “free will” from God Almighty.

    Physical death, which puts a person in a subconscious state of sleep, is not the final death–the death that is final is “complete separation” from God, with a state of mind cage in torment and torture in Eternity.

    You people have no Life at all; for it is by faith and the indwelling of Holy Spirit that a person can declare Life in him or her–for their soul is awakened from it sleep of death and Holy Spirit is at His job to renew that person’s mind for the cause of Spiritual transformation.

    People like you are simply wilting away, wandering the world like a walking coffin or a casket with a dead soul and a carnal mind–“for dust you are and to dust you shall return” with no assurance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ; don’t think that this is Life in you, for you are as dead as a sleeping bat, through fleshly existence.

    Take heed of that warning while you still have the privilege to do so–you will have done the best thing mankind will ever to for himself/herself.

    I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no man can come to the Father but by Me: Says Jesus Christ

      You are mistaken about judging. They are not judging him. They are judging the action and opposing it because it is immoral and evil. You have eyes you can see that this relationship is between two men which God abhors. You should not have it explained to you.

    We, Dominicans are hostages of our own igorance, narrow-minded thinking, Dominica is about a 100years behind most develope countries and it often manifest itself in so many ways.

    Dear Jesus is Alive: Homosexuality as an abomination is deliberately said because the ACT of buggery is nasty, inhumane and is involved in a part of the anatomy which is godly designed to pass waste. The anal is not designed for penetration but for passing waste, excrete, you interfere with it is dangerous because of the design and purpose of the tissue there.
    On the other hand, you cannot make fornication a crime because it is not an abomination, because the sexual act involves sex man and woman, and there is no threat t the anatomy and etc.. and you cannot arrest and punish people having sex outside of marriage, the role of your church is to continue to persuade young people to do well, practice safe and good lifestyle and the benefits of Christ n their life.

    Hope you are with me.Though God does not condone or we promote fornication and sex outside marriage, it is not an abomination just like bestiality and homosexuality and lesbianism are etc…those are just inhumane is just not natural. I hope this helps you …God Bless

      The government does have the God given authority to pass laws against fornication, adultery, etc., AND enforce those laws. Please read Romans 13:1-4. The fact that governments have not done this may be one reason their countries are in such a sorry mess.

      However, it would be difficult to enforce those laws. It would be impossible to know who is committing these sins, or where or when they are doing it. The police could not handle the increased workload. In many places jails and prisons are already full or near to capacity.

      Obviously, some things should be should be recognized as sins but not made crimes. There is a responsibility on parents, school teachers, and pastors 8) to teach children and adults the moral code God has given us in he New Testament. With a few happy exceptions they are not doing it.

      Because the Word of God is not being taught and obeyed :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: society is paying a terrible price. 8-O

      Sexually transmitted diseases are spreading.

      Girls are getting pregnant, dropping out of school, and career aspirations are not being realized. :roll:

      Single mothers are struggling financially to raise children without a husband to share the burden. :(

      Children are growing up without a father image in the home to contribute to the discipline. Boys suffer from not having a male role model. Girls who are starved for the love of a father find themselves drawn to an older man who seems to provide this and it is the source of some of the child molestation we see today. :twisted:

      Both boys and girls growing up in this kind of single parent home are seeing a bad example. (If the father has died it is a different matter.) Daughters start dating early. They begin having sex before they are married because it is what they have seen :oops: in their mother. When they know their peers are doing these things there is only their mother left. But unless their mothers can teach them the difference between right and wrong and back that teaching up with her own example there is little hope for the new generation. 8-O

      Things will get worse unless those who CAN make a difference start doing so :!: But unless they start doing so soon there will not be anything left.

    i think all gay people should dig out there eye and walk around blind because they were given an organ to do one thing and they want to use it for something els it doesn’t take a genius to know that when it comes to sex it should be male and female the whole reason for sex is to reproduce now tell me what can a man and man or woman and woman reproduce its against nature now if you want that life fine,but i don’t want to see you doing your nastiness and if it is decriminalized thats what gonna happen and then i think it wont be safe for you gays because there a people that a strongly against it and i would hate for them to get violent with gay people.stick with what you already have do your thing privately because as far as i know just as killing is not acceptable gays will never be acceptable at leas not by the majority.americans do anything for position and power in politics but if you believe you will ever see a gay couple as president well then i think that will be judgment day.

    I believe as a Born Again believer in Jesus Christ that homosexuality is an abomination just as fornication and adultery but in a country with some many different religions it should not be a crime.
    Because not everybody believes the bible, we cannot force our beliefs on people. If they want to punish people for sexual sins why not arrest all the young people who are having sex outside of marriage. Jesus came to seek and save that which was lost. And to all those pastors that talking about keeping homosexuality a crime best you go and share the love of Jesus with them, or rally to make fornication a crime too. Going to jail will not change the heart only Jesus can. Dominica need s Jesus he is the only way to salvation. God bless.

      Jesus is Alive your commentary is sad. You sound confused. In one breathe you refer to homosexuality as abomination and then you reference it as “our beliefs.” What really do you believe. I see no one trying to force their beliefs on anyone except the homosexuals trying to force acceptance of their lifestyle down or throats. Homosexuality, fornication, adultery are all sins. However, homosexuality is contrary to the nature God gave to man, it is contrary to what God ordained. God gave Eve to Adam. Love is required for love but honesty and truth I have found are nowhere close to the equation. Thus sayeth the Lord is what we should be saying not making excuses and compromise for sin.

      You are so wrong. Do you not know what is contained in the Holy Bible? No matter how many religions there are, it is a sin. Why do I and others know, “Because the Bible tells us so.”
      The Holy Bible is the Word of God. It is not based on how many religions there are and if people do not believe in the Bible. It is based on the Word of God.
      One day God will judge us according to our words and deeds. Learn this.
      It appears to me that you do not know Jesus otherwise you would not have made these comments.
      Our Lord said, “Not everyone who says Lord, Lord will enter the Kingdom of Heaven but only those who obey his Father’s Will.”
      It is his Father’s Will that men do not indulge in this type of relationship because it is immoral and highly offends God. Those who are genuine practicing Christians will renounce such a relationship. It is their obligation, as obedient Christians, to God.

    I leaving in a country where gay marriage is legal and they could get married in church, but Again the people of that society is open minded and belived that everyone is equal, no matter their sexuality. and these are the kind of attitude that brings piece and harmonny

      It is a nation where morality is at a very low ebb. They are struggling to cope with the problems caused by their unwillingness to live by God’s moral code in the New Testament. Doctors, social workers, and pastors are working to help heal the hurts sin is causing.

      You say we are using our Bibles to discriminate and persecute. NO! We are using our Bibles as a light in the darkness so we will not fall into the cesspool so many of these poor people have fallen into. We are trying to use our Bibles to show others the way. Because Manicou, the Bible has given us a good life :!: There is no Guide to Successful Living on any book shelf on earth that even compares to it.

      WHO has recently announced that homosexual men are 19 times more likely to contact AIDS then straight men. The one single group of people most responsible for the spread of AIDS is homosexual men. Tax payers – mostly heterosexuals – are paying these expenses. This is money that could be used to educate our children and look after our seniors.

      I know of a man with a wife and children who left his family and moved in with another man. His wife was heart broken. His children were devastated. He contacted AIDS and committed suicide.

      I also know a woman who had a husband and children. She left them and moved in with a lesbian lover. Her little girl asked, “What is wrong daddy? Doesn’t mommy love us any more?”

      Please don’t even suggest that those who practice homosexual abominations are not hurting other people.

      Homosexuality is against nature. (Romans 1:26, 27) It goes against the model God gave us for marriage. (Matthew 19:4-6)

      You love the nation you live in because there are no laws against some of the vilest sins known to mankind. The men of Sodom also loved their nation, mocked the people of God, and fed the flames.

        Ignorance of the facts AND the desire to indulge their lust are the two reasons some advocate for homosexuality and others practice the perversion.

        The worse lie the LGBT community uses to defend themselves and spread the evil is that homosexuals are born that way.

Who are we to cast the first stone? Some of you say you dont want your children to see that lifestyle but almost everyday movies show gay scenes and are you really a watch dog for your kids. We have gays in Dominica,
    have you seen them showing affection in public? Those people have their people to do whatever they want in the privacy of an enclosed place because we all know that it is an offence to be seen conducting sexual gestures in public.

WE CANNOT ACCEPT HOMOSEXUALITY BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS IT IS AN ABOMINABLE ACT. IF WE DO, HOW ARE WE GOING TO TEACH OUR FUTURE GENERATION CHRISTIANITY??

      Whooo …

      Is it not true Mr. Fevrier waited until he was resigning to tell the nation it should drop its anti-gay laws?

      Did he not hold a top position for two decades in Dominica on behalf of an organization which in the States is devoted to promoting abortion in black communities? Now he is finished his career in Dominica. On the way out he shoots you the finger by saying Dominica should drop its anti-gay laws. He
      does this knowing full well that Dominica is a Catholic nation. This does not make him a brave man, or the material leaders are made of. It violate protocol. It is rude.

    It came as a surprise to me that Planned Parenthood would be allowed to work in Dominica.

    Do Dominicans even know the history of this organization and what it does?

    In 1921 Margret Sanger began the Birth Control League in the USA and Planned Parenthood grew out of that early beginning. The purpose of Planned Parenthood was to provide birth control teaching and products at a time in history when they were not legal. Abortion soon became part of their program. This organization is now performing 300,000 abortions a year in the States alone.

    Planned Parenthood no doubt does offer practical help to women and families. Enough to make them acceptable and even desired in poor nations. But a very big item on their agenda – a priority – is to fight for women’s “right” to have abortions. They will work to repeal the laws against abortion. If abortion is illegal in your country Planned Parenthood will do everything in their power to have the laws changed. They want to open and operate abortion “clinics”. All of course in the name of “reproductive health”.

    Here is the scary part. Sanger was an American pioneer in the field of eugenics. It was her belief that abortion should be used to stop babies from being born to poor parents, and parents who were mentally challenged or physically handicapped. A review of her writings and those of her co-workers shows that it was a belief among them that abortion should be used to slow down the population growth of visible minorities and should be promoted in their communities. That is exactly what they are doing in the States.

    The present day Planned Parenthood tries to distance themselves from Sanger’s work in eugenics but this is difficult to do in the light of her writings.

    They have also tried to cover up their racism by hiring a number of good black people to work within their ranks and of course they do this in a Caribbean nation.

    We hope those who care and have a sincere interest in the truth will do their own research.

    Documentation is available.

    GOOGLE: BLACKGENOCIDE.ORG The Truth About Margret Sanger

    Also GOOGLE: planned parenthood. Once you get past their own promotional website you will find pages of information that are true reporting and honest journalism.

    It is hard to imagine Willie Fevrier having Dominica’s best interests at heart when he says he would like to see homosexuality decriminalized n your country. It would not make Dominica a better place. Nor would the legalization of abortion. And make no mistake about it. Planned Parenthood will fight to being in abortion if they are given space because that is what they are there for! And it won’t be because they love your people. Regardless of the name they are registered under in Dominica they are an America organization with an American agenda. They take orders from Headquarters and it is them they must please.

      To my shocking surprise they have been there for some years. I recall visiting Dominica and was shocked to hear their advertisement on the radio. It was also advertised in the newspapers. They were offering condoms. This is another reason why crimes/murders have escalated. When sin is openly practiced in the land, as this (also) Planned Parenthood, God turns his back on them. He is still with those who worship him and do their utmost to live a moral life but He will turn his back on those who practice evil.
      The government allowed Planned Parenthood in Dominica. This immoral organization practices under the banner of helping women, making it sound that it is a good/moral one. It is not!
      Those who operate this organization do not realize how much God is offended. These are they who go to church. One day they will find out. If I resided in D/ca I would not work for this organization nor encourage others to do so. It really is from the devil, performing the devil’s work.

        Thank you JUSTICE AND TRUTH for writing the truth. You are a voice crying in the wilderness!

        I share your feeling of horror when you learned that Planned Parenthood was working in Dominica. It is a known fact that this terrible organization promotes abortion and operates abortion mills big-time in the States. What may not be known by your people in Dominica is that they are focusing their abortion efforts on black communities in the States to decrease the number of black babies being born. Shame

        This is the most hateful racist organization on earth. Dominica is both a black nation and a Roman Catholic nation. How Planned Parenthood could get into the country to set up operations on your beautiful island is a mystery. Your government at the time could have stopped this from happening but they did not.

      What is happening between two consenting adults of the same gender is what IS going wrong.

      Among men it is called sodomy or buggery. I don’t know what it is called among women because I’m still trying to figure out what it is they do. No, I don’t want you to tell me.

      I do know it has caused married couples to break up and destroyed families when one partner leaves to live with a same sex companion. It has spread disease. It has resulted in people engaging in gruesome and horrific criminal behavior. For example 67% of serial killers are homosexuals. How bad is this? Let me tell you. Only 3% to 4% of the population are homosexuals yet 67% of serial killers are homosexuals! You do the math. The six worst serial killers in the USA have been homosexuals. Two of them were cannibals. There is much more. There are things the media will not make public for the sake of political correctness.

    i support Mr.Fevrier a 101%. We live in a democracy. It means that the church and the state don’t mix. Hence your religious opinions and beliefs should not influence the running of the state. The state is there to represent and protect all it’s citizens, christians as well as gays or any other group in society. We need to learn to respect others even if the may be different. LIVE AND LET LIVE!!

      God created us, whether church and state. In his eyes they are not separated. Some of those who work for the State are Christians, some practicing ones. God has his eyes and ears on all what we say and do, wherever we may be.
      We are answerable to God who will judge us. This is what you must concentrate on.
      Church and State were divided so that one would not boss the other; take advantage and interfere in their affairs. However, if you are following the US news, it is not so where the State is concerned.
      To make it brief, in certain aspects the State pokes its nose in the affairs of the Church. The worst is yet to come, i.e., the persecution of church. It has already begun but has not yet culminated when the Anti-Christ will reveal himself. Gradually it is happening. I will leave it at that.

      • August 1, 2014

        Those who truly believe in the separation of church and state
        should not get up on their high horse when the church takes a position on a moral issue and speaks out on it. On the contrary. Separation of church and state means the church has a right to take a position and speak out. It also means the state cannot force a particular religion on its people. The citizens are free to choose their own church and follow the religion of their choice. Or they can choose to belong to no church and adhere to no religion.

        God has delegated to governments and civil leaders the authority to hand down laws and enforce those laws. Christians are to obey the laws as long as they do not contradict the laws of God or forbid us to practice the faith. See Romans 14:1-4 and Acts 4:18-20. etc.

        For 2,000 years the church through its bishops, pastors, and evangelists has advised kings, prime ministers, governors, and rulers at every level regarding how the correct interpretation of he scripture should be applied to the moral issue of the day, and how this should be reflected in he laws of the land.

        The kings of Europe have been influenced by the popes. It is no secret that more than one president in the USA has sought the advice of Evangelist Billy Graham, and presidents
        have received counsel from nationally known pastors.

    I am really surprised by these statements by Willie Fevrier. Recently, I have been hearing many “lambs” speak with voices of “beasts” and this saddens me. It would appear that these “lambs” have been “beasts” all along but their outward clothing did mask their real appearance. Willie Fevrier is reported to have said at a press conference on Wednesday that he hopes to see homosexuality decriminalized in Dominica pointing out that it should not be a crime if two consenting adults, in the privacy of their homes, carry on sexual activity.

    Are you serious, Willie? Doesn’t buggery go against the spirit of our Constitution? If you relegate homosexuality from a criminal activity to one only bothering our morality, there are going to be family and societal issues which the law will have to attempt to regulate. So it is better to make use of the law upfront to prevent chaos rather than to cure the mess. When a people attempt to identify themselves and develop norms of behaviours, it follows that they put some of those norms into statutes and laws. Such laws express in a meaningful way those norms we are very serious about. Homosexuality is one such law. As a people, Dominicans do not subscribe to such a debasing orgy and, to be frank, Mr. Fevrier, you are out-of-place and out-of-order to speak down to grown-ass men and women and suggest we decriminalise buggery in favour of it being just a moral subject. Sir, retire to your home, community and conscience and allow those with a better view of civilisation take it from here.

      • November 4, 2014

        What you are going to have is young girls dropping out of school to have babies, children who don’t know who their fathers are, mothers struggling alone to raise children, and boys and girls growing up in one parents homes.

        The latest and best studies in the social sciences show what common sense has always known by simple observation that this is seriously problematic.

        In nations that have shed the bondage of traditional religious morals and values and “freed” themselves from this awful fundamentalism you speak of there are women buying sperm from a sperm bank to suite the type of baby they want. They are getting themselves impregnated by doctors who specialize in reproductive engineering. Some of these men have been found to be men with a criminal record and some were doing it before it became legal. Did you know there have been women who have learned later that the sperm actually came from a near of kin who had sold it to the sperm bank? There are reasons now to worry about brothers and sisters marrying each other because they don’t know they are related.

        To trample on God’s moral code and mock His laws do not lead to true freedom and a good life. It creates the worse problems imaginable that society does not have an answer for.

        Do not think for one moment that what lies between civilization and the jungle is modern education, science, and technology. What lies between civilization and the jungle is the Word of God and His commandments.

      Frank Talker, in what way homosexuality is ”against the spirit of the Constitution”?

      And orgy is not synonymous with homosexuality.

      • April 24, 2015

        An orgy can be either heterosexual or homosexual.

        More homosexuals indulge in the weirder expressions of sexuality. Once a person has crossed the line into the dark world of same sex relationships they are more apt to take it to the next level and become involved in the grossest and most horrific crimes, the details of which do not even get published in the regular newspapers.

      Why is it you display such arrogance especially the latter end of your comment,is all that necessary to prove your point.It just shows the mind you got regarding the matter.When you asked the question “Doesn’t buggery go against the spirit of our Constitution”? Well for your information there is nothing written about buggery in the Constitution.The law forbidding buggery is a criminal code made by legislation.The question that is being asked is whether this criminal code is outdated especially when such act is done in private between consenting people.

      You got such narrow mind set suggesting that laws are needed to regulate homosexuality because it is not a normal behavior.You also need to understand the basic principle why laws are required.Laws are a set of rules and regulations that one has to obeyed in order to maintain peace and harmony in the society. If two adults consent to a sexual act in the privacy of their home whether it be heterosexual or homosexual why is it the homosexual act is subject to criminal prosecution.Have they offended anyone by doing such act in the privacy of their home of course not.Yes, it my be immoral to people who have their religious beliefs and why should the State or Government make this a crime simply because people holding religious beliefs deem it to be immoral.

      • June 17, 2014

        No Gary, it was not made illegal in Dominica because religious people thought it was immoral. It was made illegal because the Word of God says it is immoral.

        Romans 1:26,27. 1 Corinthians 6:9,10. 1 Timothy 1:9,10.
        Jude vs. 7.

        Not every sin of immorality can be made illegal. But homosexuality is in a class by itself for two reasons. First, it is an unnatural act. Romans 1:26,27. Second, it strikes the model or pattern God has given us for marriage which is the very cornerstone of civilized society. Matthew 19:4-6.

    When Willie Fevrier say,

    “To those of us who are Christian”

    The ? is what is he really talking about.?

    Almost every thing you buy, you always get a manual.And it is to show you the safe use of the product,So 2 when one becomes a Christian the BIBLE becomes his manual (manifesto).The bible is the mind of God,if you want to know God’s opinion of sodomy…Go back to the final authority, the BIBLE.

    When you hear them talk about
    tolerance,inclusiveness and understanding,what they really mean is to abandon your God given common sense,(woman was made for man)and as believers in Christ,we still believe.

    “Righteousness exalts a nation:but sin is a reproach to any people.”Proverbs 14:34

    If we don’t fall for their depraved thinking, we are called homophobic,intolerant and haters.

    I can remember a good friend of Willie saying,

    “I will do everything within my power to see that homosexuality is decriminalized in Dominica.”
    Ex.Minister 4 health John Fabien

    As you can see God always have the final say.

    I am not surprised at this statement from him W.F..Soon he will ask the Government of Dominica to give women the right to kill babies in the womb.Because the Plan Parenthood in the U.S.is killing over 300.000 babies per year thru abortion.

      Like Willie said, a Christian has the right to freely uphold the bible teachings for themself. These teachings SHOULD not be imposed on others that don’t wish to accept it. Therefore, to make someone sexual orientation a criminal act is stupid, people should have right to leave their life the way they want to, once they are hurting anyone else. Dominica is a free democratic country, with a separation of church from state; this is not Iran or Saudi.

      • January 14, 2014

        And the judgment of God will fall upon Dominica and every nation including my own that lifts buggery to a status of respectability.

        Only a fool would even imply that people have a “right” to “exercise their sexuality with fear.”

        (1) This means that God Almighty the Creator of the heavens and the earth has no right to tell us – His created beings – how to live.

        (2) It shows that the speaker or writer has no knowledge or doesn’t care about the broken hearts, lost marriages, fatherless children, financial difficulties, school dropouts, and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases caused by
        illicit sex.

        (3) It reflects a totally warped sense of values or a lack of values. A few stolen moments of carnal pleasure or a relationship you hope your children never find out about are worth more than
        a loving committed marriage between a man and woman, as husband and wife.

        (4) It portrays somebody who has no regard for God’s moral code given to us in the New Testament which clearly forbids every form of fornication (illicit sex) including premarital sex, extra marital sex, homosexuality, and lesbianism. (Romans 1:26,27) (1 Corinthians 6:9,10) (Galatians 5:19-21) (1 Timothy 1:9,10) Jude vs. 7)

        (5) People should have the right to exercise their own sexuality without fear? What kind of society does this man want to live in? It would be a world of pedophiles, incest, rape, and beastility, with no penalty for any of these things, and everything being considered normal.

        (6) This is a man who has lost his reason. He does not realize once you decriminalize and approve a single ONE of these perversions you MUST allow them all the same equal legal status. Because the moment you don’t you are showing partiality. You are bias. You are discriminating.
        And the “civil rights” organizations, along with the UN, will be all over you screaming for “equal rights.

        (7) This man is showing no manners. He knows Dominica is opposed to abortion and homosexuality. For years he live and worked in your country. He enjoyed your hospitality. Your beautiful island hosted his American organization. Then when he leaves – wrapped in the Stars and the Stripes – (excuse the expression) he shoots you the finger on the way out!

      It is not these other sins that people are trying to justify.

      We have always preached that committing adultery and going to church the next day as if nothing is wrong is a sin. The Bible forbids these others sins just as it forbids homosexuality. But as homosexuality has become more accepted we have found it necessary to increase our stand against it.

      The people who commit these other sins are not celebrating them. Nobody wants to have an Adultery
      Pride Parade to put on display the splendors of extra marital sex. People who have sex with a neighbor’s husband or wife are not telling people it is nobody’s business what they do in the bedroom. No! They would be ashamed if people found out. They want to keep their behavior secret because it shows they have failed.

    Unfortunately when people side even verbally with homosexuality a light goes out in their souls. To say that all people should be treated equally regardless of sexual orientation is an indication of incredible darkness.

    Willie Fevrier is saying:

    He does not bow to – nor accept the authority of – the Holy Scriptures. The Word of God clearly forbids homosexual relationships in Romans 1:21-32, 1 Corinthians 6:9,10, 1 Timothy 1:9,10, and Jude vs. 7.

    He endorses an unhealthy lifestyle. Statistics have shown homosexuals have a higher rate of mental health issues, a higher rate of alcoholism, and a higher rate of suicides. They have a shorter lifespan.

    He has no regard for the known facts. The City of San Francisco is the most liberal in America when it comes to homosexuality. Indeed it is the gay capital of the States: the show case window of all that is homosexual in that country. The evidence in San Francisco shows that a much higher crime potential and tendency towards sadistic violence exists among homosexuals than among straights. Over 40% of the violent crimes in San Francisco involve homosexuals.

    He is showing a lack of concern for what the decriminalization of homosexuality leads to. It cannot be compared to fornication, adultery, and similar moral sins for which laws may not be necessary. Once homosexuality is made legal homosexuals begin to push for the legalization of same sex marriages and adoption rights. Mr. Fevrier obviously wants these benefits for gay people. But he is refusing to take into consideration that once sake sex marriage is legalized there will be those who want polygamous marriages made legal. The very same “equality” arguments that were used to push same sex marriages through will be used to push polygamous marriages through. But the polygamy people will have a stronger case. They can argue the right to “freedom of religion” since polygamy is part of several religions. After this the government may have to face those who want adult-minor marriages, parent-adult child marriages, and brother-sister marriages. In order to provide equality – in order to not discriminate – if the government makes ONE exception to the present marriage format for homosexuals by legalizing same sex marriages they MUST allow for these other relationships! Make no mistake about it. If that sad day comes the USA and the UN will want you to legalize what ever other “relationship” comes knocking. They have already shown their disrespect for sovereign self-governing nations in the Caribbean.

    He has no respect for a decision made by your PM which had the support of the majority of Dominicans. To take this kind of a shot at the Government of Dominica on his way out seems to be a departure from protocol. It is rude.

        His punishment will be more severe. He has not been practicing his faith as he should. A Catholic who publicly proclaims and encourages this abomination which is against Church teaching, should be excommunicated. He should not receive Holy Communion. No use of him going to Confession with this attitude. Even though the priest says “I forgive you”, God who knows and sees all things will not forgive him. The priests only represent God. They do not forgive for they are not God. They can only sincerely carry out the action with relevant words but God is The One who forgives, if the laity is sincere.
        In this case, Fevrier is bent on carrying out his evil actions. No blessings and forgiveness for him unless he repents with a humble and contrite heart, never to offend God again. God knows his heart.
        Same as baptism and marriage. God blesses them from above. Some people may not know that. The priests know it.
        I hope Bishop Malzaire, the superior/monsignor and parish priest knows about this man.
        He probably will not go to Church after this exposure. If he does, he would be extremely bold. On the other hand, if he does, he will not be refused entry but he will be denied the Sacraments. One has to be in good faith and standing with a clear conscience to receive Holy Communion. St. Paul wrote of this.
        I hope the Catholic authorities in Dominica are aware of what he stated as posted on this Website, no doubt printed in the newspapers and broadcasted on the radio. May they take steps to announce this on the pulpit and to inform this man of his disobedience and sin.
        If not, you inform them and/or the parish priest. They must know about it. They are not really out in public but we are. We have an obligation to our Church.
        I do not reside in Dominica. Otherwise, I would inform them. If I so wish, I could also telephone and report this. However, one of you Catholics in Dominica should do so. It is your obligation for the love of God, for the preservation of the faith, respect for it and for the love of the Church.

      Rev. Hill, I can assure you that everything and more which you have said is true. I live in Canada and Homosexuals are pushing the envelope more and more. They are not only satisified with gaining a foothold in society, but actively hate heterosexuals, referring to them as “breeders”. They seek to infiltrate marriages and destroy them, by seducing the spouse of their sex. Homosexuality is a scourge on the earth, for which God demonstrated his hatred with fire and brimstone on the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Do not allow the government of Dominica to follow the mistakes of their bigger, not not necessarily wiser neighbours.

Since they are allowed to be so-called married, they fought for adopting children. Oh my! How God is offended. Those poor children who are led astray.
        Our Lord spoke about those who cause the little ones to sin and to go astray. God is patient. He will take care of them in time.

      While I don’t agree with Mr Favrier, in order to build a solid argument against him you should stick to his proposal and the content of his statement. He is not seeking an amendment to the marriage laws but advocating decriminalising homosexuality. Further to your comment, I think our society is at greater risk from adultery and fornication than homosexuals as:

      1. these are often reasons why our children have gone wayward and away from God and In my opinion opens up our society to homosexuality and other forms of what we generally consider deviant sexual behaviour,

      2. the state suffers more from the economic issues arising from these other sins which society has decided is okay and OUR BIBLE has not.

      Allow me to add further that God is pleased that man has free will. When a man chooses to follow Him through OUR SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST, God anticipates that we do it FREELY and NOT by force or with a gun to our heads as my fellow ‘Christian Dominicans’ may be proposing.

      Additionally it is not the job of us christians to judge and chastise. Didn’t Jesus himself stop the stone throwing at the prostitute and sent the rest of us off to examine our lives.

      Allow me to propose also that we should be at greater fear of secularisation and materialsim than of the things which two people do with the free will that the God we believe in gave them. Furthermore, with the faith and example that the christian community speaks of, no law or lack of law or immoral law can change the way we live our lives as by our example and the power of God WE S

      Well Mr. good Rev. I do applaud the fact that the majority of your argument is based on social convictions and not religious, but I disagree with your conclusions. Even if you decriminalize homosexuality and it led to a push for same sex marriage, it does not equate to polygamy. Same sex marriage is based on “(TWO, II, 2) CONSENTING ADULTS”, no more. And if you’re gonna go with the “Adult-minor, parent-child” argument, there’s nothing in the law right now that forbids that, cause marriage right now is simply based on “man and woman” rule, who is to stop a father marrying his daughter, yes the same law that would stop a father marrying his son.

        He is correct. We in Canada make the identical comments. This will happen when they are given recognition. Give them an inch, they will take a foot. It has occurred especially in those countries as Canada, US and Europe and they still want more. Where is it going to end? Those people are too bold and aggressive. Instead of they being ashamed and hide their evil actions behind closed doors, they came out in public and say they have pride. Pride, eh? Well, pride comes before the fall, the fall of Satan. This will be their eternal lot.
        There immoral actions do not benefit the world or the environment where they reside.
        God will, one day, bring them to naught. Patience and time!

    • Believe
      July 18, 2013

      With all due respect sir, and while I DO NOT support Mr. Favier’s postion,I do not believe he is advocating the marriage laws.

      Furthermore, allow me to disagree with you that adultery and fornication cannot be compared to homosexuality as I believe our society suffers much more from this behaviour than from homosexual behaviour. To support this stance I propose that our society’s children suffer much more greatly from these moral sins through broken marriages, dysfunctional families, wayward and depressed individuals, particularly children, teenage pregnancies, abandonned children and the works.

      Observe that the majority of these affect mainly children who are the future of this nation. this effectively means that our cghildren are exposed to sin and a variety of sexual options later in life that may or may not include homosexuality.

      As such in condoning acts or ‘normal’ sexual behaviour we have effectively opened our society to greater evils and immoralities than we would prefer to admit.

      Furthermore if we factor in the economic impact of adultery and fornication, I am sure that other forms of sexual morality would fail in comparison when you factor in the impact on health, education, our welgfare system and crime are factored in.

      Finallty, while I am not in support Mr. Fevrier’s view, I cannot agree with your contention that same sex interaction in the privacy of the bedroom serves greater harm to our society.

      PS, can a change in a law really thrust a GOD fearing Christian community which we believe in to suddenly become advocates of homosexuality or will it thrust into the light the true nature of members of it. One advantage to the latter sataement I can see is that the truth comming to light could only lead us to seek I AM who completes us.

      Rev. It worries me that you may be a Christian, but you do not have a Christian attitude towards your fellow man.

      You are cherry picking from the bible – if you are so set against the “abominations” laid out in the 4 scriptures you mention, are you also dead set against the other abominations? Should we start arresting people for eating crayfish, for example, or women for wearing trousers?

      And, as for 40% of violent crimes involving homosexuals – I have been Googling away half the afternoon to try and find your source for this, but instead, all I can find is that gay people are on the receiving end of such crimes, they are not the perpetrators.

      And as for which social group commits the most violent crime – I am sure you know the real answer to that one.

      Stop the hate.

      • July 22, 2013

        Peace: Thank you for reading my comments.

        The prohibition forbidding the eating of crayfish, etc. was part of the law God gave to one particular nation – Israel – and was in force for a limited time in their history – between the time it was given at Mt. Sinai and when Christ died at Calvary. John 19:30, Romans 10:4, and Colossians 2:14, etc.

        We now live by the New Testament. The New Testament gives us the gospel – the good news of Christ dying for our sins, and rising again on the third day, and how we can be saved by believing (through faith) in Him. 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Romans

        This makes me sad. I like to help people become the best they can become. :cry:

        You asked “Who are you to tell over half the world’s population what is right and what is wrong?” Only God can tell us what is right and what is wrong! He has done this in the Bible which is the Word of God. Like many others I have spent years studying the Bible. I have written books, taught in Bible Colleges, preached in churches, and counselled in clinics. 8)

        Those who disagree with our teachings on New Testament morality have no foundation. They may say “I believe this is right” or “I believe this is wrong” but they cannot tell us why they believe as they do. The best they can do is say “It feels good.” They have no foundation upon which to base their belief. Our teachings are based solidly upon the
        New Testament and have been believed for nearly 2,000 years. :lol:

He is judging their sins not the people. God will judge them. It is said, love the sinner, hate the sin. This is what he has implicated.
        Some of you lack godly enlightenment to know this. Whenever we oppose such immoral actions, you shout that we do not love them. In any case, what do you know about love? Get it into your thick head! He does not hate nor do other Christians. We hate the sin and what they are doing to our world and environment with their immoral behavior.

        Yes, as a child I was taught the Bible and the great truths of the Christian faith. But as I got older I began to wonder 8-O about many of these things. Like many others of my generation I
        investigated the old teachings.

        Anonymous, I can tell you this. What I believe now I believe – not because of my wonderful parents – but because I found out for myself that they taught me the truth. :-o

        I see that many commentators on DNO make a mockery of the Bible. I am so sorry for them :cry: because the Word of God gives us the only hope we can have for eternity. Christ died to pay the penalty for our sins according to Romans 5:6-9. There is no salvation apart from Him. St. John 14:6, Acts 4:12. We can be saved through faith in Christ apart from our own good works. Ephesians 2:8,9. It comes when we believe in Christ as it says in St. John 3:16., and receive Him as our Savior according to 1 John 5:11,12, and Revelation 3:20! :lol:

        People mock the Bible because they are sinners :twisted: and they don’t want God telling them how to live. But when they reject the Bible they are also rejecting the one and only plan God has for their salvation.

        People call the Bible a myth and say the ancient texts are fables. But what do they have to take their place? When they come to the end of life’s journey – when they come to “the swelling of the Jordon” and they face the darkness – what, oh what will they have?

        I wouldn’t change places with them because

        I have an anchor that holds the soul,
        stedfast and sure though the billows roll.

        The Bible is not outdated! It is away ahead of science. Did you know that many scientists no longer believe in evolution? Did you know that 44% of the Ph.D. scientists in the USA regularly attend church on Sunday? 8)

        I have just read a book called CREATION written by Grant Jeffrey, Ph.D. He shows why more and more scientists now believe in the Genesis story of creation instead of evolution. The evidence of the most recent discoveries of science in the past 70 years have been on the side of the Bible and creation.

        So Anonymous, it’s not my job to throw unkind words back at you. I don’t even care if I have the last word. I only want my Savior to be your Savior. I want to meet you someday at Christ’s right hand! :-D

        The saddest thing I have ever had to do in my “business” is to conduct a funeral service for people like you knowing that they died in their sins without a ray of gospel light.

        I distinctly recall one case. The man had been a hardened unbeliever but he was a top man in his industry. His family were unbelievers. It was through a mutual friend of the family and myself I was asked to conduct the funeral because they didn’t have anybody else. The family members paced back and forth before the funeral wringing their hands. I remember the oldest son saying to me “Reverend, can you do the service without mentioning God? Do you have to bring religion into it?”

        When you stand before God He is not going to ask you what you think of the Pentecostal religion or even Donald Hill. He is going to ask you what you did with Jesus.

        What will you do with Jesus,
        oh, what will the answer be?

        what will He do with me?

After all it is impossible for two males or two females to procreate. For it was so designed by the Lord that a man and woman must come together to create a child.

      • June 20, 2014

        This is an error.

        Ten percent of any population is not gay. The figure is between 3 and 4 %.

        The large numbers of people attending the pride parades do not reflect the percentage of gays in a particular city or even country. Many of those in attendance have come in from long distances away to support the cause in general and have nothing to do with the local community. The parades are attended by relatives, friends, and sympathizers, the curious, people who are involved in every other type of sexual perversion imaginable, and educators, reporters and journalists, social scientists who are studying the condition, but more than anybody else – the majority are just curious onlookers – who have no idea of the spiritual and psychological dangers of getting too close to the unseen demonic entities that are drawn to that kind of activity.

        Homosexual parade organizers frequently lie about the numbers in attendance and bump them up to a figure two or three times the actual number. We know this from the police who use a scientific method of telling the number of people in a crowd.

        I am mentioning this because homosexual activists have a political interest in exaggerating the percentage of a population that is gay, and implying that there are more homosexuals in their country than there actually are.

        For a long time homosexuals had to keep their sexuality hidden in order to keep their jobs and maintain their place in society. A gay man away at college would bring a lesbian home for the weekend and introduce her as his girl friend. A lesbian would have a gay man or even a male escort take her to a dance or Christmas party. Lying was the norm among homosexuals. Deception became their way of life. Now they will do what they have to do to gain “equality” and acceptance at every level.

      God loves you. He will forgive you, and change you by His grace and power.

      The word “gay” is not an appropriate word to describe a homosexual. Most are not “gay” or happy. Many pretend to be by saying they are “gay and proud” and such things. But if they were happy or even content why do they get counseling in an effort to change? Why is there such a high rate of mental disorders, alcoholism, and suicide among them? How could they not be troubled by the stats that show homosexuals have a shorter life span?

      It reminds me of a man who stood on the edge of a Gay Pride Parade holding a sign over his head that said “DON’T AFFIRM ME IN THE THING THAT ALMOST KILLED ME.”

      Why are homosexuals so defensive? Do heterosexuals broadcast to the world that they are hetero and proud? They do not feel the need to. But obviously “gays” are not at peace with themselves.

I’m sure in all his spare time he can support the over VERY pressing issues that we face in Dominica but this is his job. As human being’s rights has nothing to do with our religious beliefs. And for all of you who are so quick to condemn people, I hope you never have to see a loved one beaten, harrassed or even killed because of their sexual orientation. There are plenty gay people in Dominica who have been hiding for years in fear. I was born and raised Catholic, taught Sunday School for years and at one point considered even being a nun. But I refuse to let a religion tell me that an entire group or people are demonized because of who they want to sleep with. Will we so blindly follow a religion and then completely ignore the biggest commandment? Love God with all your heart, soul and mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.

    We need to have a discussion about why homophobia is so prevalent. What 2 consenting adults so in the privacy of their own homes is nobody’s business but theirs. I may not understand it, but it is not my business. I would rather focus my attention on something that needs addressing, like criminal behaviour – Abusing the elderly, domestic violence and rape.

      Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

    I love how everyone is claiming how uneducated he is because he supports gay rights. I would love for a survey to be done amongst the actual educated portions on Dominicans because the majority of those who have gone to university would support gay rights. In fact it is those religious bigots that are unable to look beyond their own religion that are the uneducated ones in Dominica.

      THOSE WE CALL EDUCATED AND PROFESSORS AND DOCTORS, GOD CALL THEM FOOLS. Psalm 53:1-5 (KJV)
      1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.
      2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
      3 Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
      4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread: they have not called upon God.
      5 There were they in great fear, where no fear was: for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee: thou hast put them to shame, because God hath despised them. YOU CAN’T BELIEVE THERE IS A GOD AND WINK YOUR EYE AT SIN ESPECIALLY THAT OF SODOM AND GOMORRAH.

    Legalize or not i really don’t care as long as it will be illegal to do stuff in public such as hold hands, kiss and other extremes like we saw on the cruise ship in public. I do not want this in front my eyes nor my childrens like i do not want any other sin in front my eyes. I have my own sins to get rid off as I purify my soul on this journey of life. I don’t need to be bombarded by others who want their sins aired out in public, subjecting others to live in their polluted environment and making it more difficult for them to live the life they want. Keep in mind your surroundings can determine who you are and we already have liberized so much that it is hard to keep on the right track. In any case ‘it’ is already very much happening behind closed doors as we already know and no one is getting arrested. Just look at the aids statistics. So really there’s nothing to change.

    “…I think the human species is very diverse, we have different kinds of people and as a society I think we should be more caring, more tolerant to the people different from us…”
    This seems to me to be the main point of Mr Fevrier’s message, and it seems to me from the comments that many people are missing this point. There IS too much hatred in Dominica, not only of homosexuals, but of people with money/possessions, people with lighter/darker skin etc, and more tolerance towards each other can only be a good thing.

    And “consenting acts between adults” means exactly that. I.e. Both people give permission by words or actions. So why so many people talking about sex with animals being next ? They think animals capable of speech? Not understanding that the word ADULT excludes the animal kingdom, and also the underage??

    And finally (and I just know this will get me a huge thumbs down) – it is generally accepted by religious leaders the world over that the Old Testament is no longer a basis for a sensible way of life. If it was, we would all have to change what we eat and wear, and how we treat our wives and daughters.

    Oh, and what did Jesus say on the subjects of tolerance and of homosexuality?

        No Gary, it was not made illegal in Dominica because religious people thought it was immoral. It was made illegal because the Word of God says it is immoral.

        Romans 1:26,27. 1 Corinthians 6:9,10. 1 Timothy 1:9,10.
        Jude vs. 7.

        Not every sin of immorality can be made illegal. But homosexuality is in a class by itself for two reasons. First, it is an unnatural act. Romans 1:26,27. Second, it strikes the model or pattern God has given us for marriage which is the very cornerstone of civilized society. Matthew 19:4-6.

    In the bible (The manual for living our lives), Leviticus 20:13 clearly states that it is an abomination for a man to lie with a man.

    Here is a man that has worked most of his life in Dominica for the development of our country. This man is an elder/leader in our society, not by the virtue of being elected but by his experience and his track record of his contribution, involvement and success in social and community development. On his retirement he makes a statement on where he thinks the people of the country would be better served, and instead of asking him to explain his statement, we condemn him. This is indeed a sign of NO RESPECT, and is a bad reflection on our society for not reasoning before we speak or perhaps not having the ability to reason before making judgments.

    I do not believe homosexuality is right, I believe that it is an abominable sin, however God has given us freedom of choice…but where we draw the line is the big question? illegal drug use…murder…theft? Fornication and adultery are also sins, but long gone are the days when they are punishable by law…so again I say where do we draw the line?…But as the outgoing DPPA legalization of homosexuality is your parting statement? Really? What about the degradation of the family structure… The large number of single parent homes.. children being raised by elders.. or unfit parents..or children raising children… high school and even primary school children having sexual intercourse…the children and parent who have no proper shelter , food or clothing..those who can’t afford education or the essentials to attend school???? I am very confused as to why this area is of concern to him when there are infinitely more pressing issues?? I won’t even suggest that he address the current government for some may say that his area is parenthood..so in his niche area there is much more to be concerned with Mr. Fevrier… I hope you read this and refocus your efforts to a more worthy cause…BLESSINGS

I’m against homosexuality in the sense that I’m against homosexuals adopting n I have my reasons y but we are humans are free to be who we want to be n free to be with whomever as long as the other person consent to it and is at legal age. Some of u are right poverty is an issue and should definitely addressed but i also agree with mr. Willie. Homosexuality should be decriminalized in the sees that a person should not be prosecuted. At the end of the day they are human beings n if they’re doing their business in the privacy of their home it’s not ur business n it’s nt affecting u. If u all want to talk about criminalizing homos why dnt u do the same with married men who cheat on their wife’s? What do u say about that church/Christian gurus???

    “People tend to discriminate against people of a different sexual orientation and that is of a major concern to me. News article

    But Sir: Are you forgetting that those so-called people with different sexual orientation we all conceived by and man in the womb of a woman–that is the way it has been from the beginning, as God intended for it to be, and so mankind was born through Adam and Eve.

    Hence “sexual orientation” does not describe a man who is gay or a woman who is a lesbian. they are male and female as God called them to be–through them He was cause reproduction in this world.

    A man who choses to maintain sexual relationship with another man like chose to conduct that abomination by his privilege of “free will”–that conduct is a very shameful sin before the Holy God, who created him–there is no question about that–so why should society accept that conduct?

    I think the human species is very diverse, we have different kinds of people and as a society I think we should be more caring, more tolerant to the people different from us…” he said. News Article

    Yes Sir: that is true, but you are speaking about homosexual conducts, as you seem to condone to that practice–there a difference between being “different” pertaining to Culture for example, and those who conduct “homosexuality” or “lesbianism”.

    In other words a gay man from China and one from Dominica maintain the same conduct all the way!

    I would hate to believe that people hate the “person” of homosexuality, for I do not hate anyone. It is their conduct that should cannot be tolerated by the majority in society–they will have to deal with that.

    Those of us who are Christians know that Jesus want us to love every one–even our enemy–but He also wants us to hate the bad things which they do–because those bad things do not glorify His Love and Holiness.

    Instead those people give the crown to Satan, who is God’s enemy and ours as well–that is exactly what homosexuals are doing–no question about that.

    Society is simply confused about sex. On the one hand we want to be free to follow our own “sexual orientation,” but on the other hand, we still publicly shame high-profile individuals such as political leaders and sports personalities when we discover that they’re having having extramarital “affairs.” We don’t know what we want!

    Why is it that we try to make people feel bad to get our own way?

    Sure a man wants to have sex with another man…that is their business but that does not mean that I have to have to go against what I believe in to meet your needs.

    What about my rights? Don’t I have a right to say No too? Trying to make me feel that I am not caring when I say no to homosexuality is so wrong.

Just imagine an 85-year old woman asked a bus driver from Canefield to drop her at her home which is a distance from the main road because she had two bags to carry. The bus driver told her she would have to pay extra for that and because she refused he put her down on the main road. The old lady is not working and you expect her to pay extra.

    Willie Fevrier, here is a godly message for you and others who approve this abomination which needs no further explanation, the Word of the Lord.

    Romans 2:8:11 – God’s Just Judgment – Yes, affliction and distress will come upon every human being who does evil…but there will be glory, honor, peace for everyone who does good…There is no partiality with God.

    Colossians 3:5-6 – Renunciation of Vice – Put to death, then, the parts of you that are earthly immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire and the greed that is idolatry. Because of these the wrath of God is coming upon the disobedient.

    2 Thessalonians 1:7-10 – …At the revelation of the Lord Jesus from Heaven, with his mighty angels, in blazing fire inflicting punishment on those who do not acknowledge God, and on those who do not obey the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus. These will pay the penalty of eternal ruin, separated from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his power, when he comes to be glorified among his holy ones and to be marveled at on that day among all who have believed, for one testimony to you was believed.

    1Timothy 1:3: 7 – Warning against False Doctrine – …The aim of this instruction is love from a pure heart, a good conscience and a sincere faith. Some people have deviated from this and turned to meaningless talk, wanting to be teachers of the law, but without understanding either what they are saying or what they assert with assurance.
    1 Timothy 1:8-11 – We know that the law is good provided that one uses it as law, with the understanding that law is meant for a righteous person but for the lawless and unruly the godless and sinful, the unholy and profane, those who kill their fathers or mothers, murderers, the unchaste, “practicing homosexuals”, kidnapers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is opposed to sound teaching, according to the glorious Gospel of the Blessed God with which I have been entrusted.

    There is more in Holy Scripture. It appears to me that you have ignored this holy teachings and do not care where your soul will end up in eternity. The New Testament clearly outlines God’s disapproval of this abomination which some of you human beings, even as practicing Christians, want to recognized. The punishment will be more severe for Christians who approve it, encourage and applaud it.

    Wonders never cease. Whoever thought that we would be faced with another Sodom and Gomorrah in Dominica and in other parts of the world? It is for this same reason that Our Almighty Father destroyed it because of homosexual acts.
    He is correct. He is on his way “out of this earth” closer to eternity. Be careful. God is taking note.
    Are you a Catholic Christian or not?
    Who made you speaker for those people? Are you one? Do you have a relative and friend who is one or do you know some business associates who are homosexuals?
    Who is being homophobic? If some people are homophobic, the government should speak out against it, hating others; everyone in general. This is the only one that the government should address.
    Some of you confuse this. It is love the sinner hate the sin. It isn’t everyone who hates homosexuals. They hate their acts and rightfully so.
    These people want us to accept their homosexuality and to applaud them. Christians should have no part of that.
    As for Planned Parenthood, it is not recognized as a Christian, moral organization. Keep in touch with http://www.ewtn.com, TV and Radio and you will hear and learn about the actions of the immoral US Planned Parenthood. Recently they were taken to Court. I believe they lost their case. They encourage abortions. The Dominica section originated from this US P.P.
    You want homosexuals to go all out in public and also have a parade in the streets of Dominica? Oh my! How foolish you are.
    The same in the US, Canada and Europe, emphasis is placed on homosexuals and not lesbians. Lesbians also got the identical benefit as homosexuals and it appears that lesbians do not mind at all. I do not hear them complain about that. Therefore wherever this abomination is legalized they also applaud because they are aware of the benefit which they will derive from it. They may be working behind the scenes to promote it.
    I would inform you, as you age, to pray to God that He will keep you healthy and when you die He will have mercy on your soul. This is what you should be concerned about as you retire.
    Woe to all those who practice this abomination, who legislate it and who encourage it!

      And some think we should legalize prostitution, polygamy, incest, and bestiality.

      It is people who are deeply troubled who want the stigma lifted from these expressions of sexuality to give themselves relief from their own guilt and brokenness.

      Basically they do not believe God Almighty has a right to tell them how to live by forbidding certain types of behavior.

      If he supports gay rights, he must be gay. is President Obama gay?

      I’m not gay, but I support the rights of gays around the world. We are not created to judge others, yet we think we can. Let people live their life and create their happiness; don’t take that from them.

      Just because he believes that everyone is equal doesn’t make him gay. Calling someone gay because they support gay rights is simply trying to insult the person to shut up. WHy don’t you argue the point rather than fling insults.

    Very worrying statements and sentiments by Willie Fervier. We are more concerned about the heart of the problem of poverty and corruption Dominica and abuse of all Dominicans by this Skerrit lead Labour party government. Maybe Willie is able to enlighten us by coming out also and openly condemn this corrupt government and the continued abuse and use of poor people under the guise of development. That is the presenting issue in Dominica, poverty and poor people in Grand Bay, Carib Territory, Castle Bruce, Dubique etc…Homosexuality and Lesbians is a horrible act and you as a practising Christian should not in anyway assume to promote this act. the greatest act of criminality is the poverty imposed on Dominicans by this government, and an insult to us Dominicans to have to climb up stairs and beg money from a Prime Minister. Next we will hear that it is ok for Bestiality(sex between man and animal)to be done safely in the comfort of the farm house or in the farmers bed room. We need to protect human decency. By the way there is no such thing as Homophobia, it is a made up word conveniently use to defend the undefendable. A Phobia is a fear of something, no one has a fear of those who are gay, we condemn the Act of the dirty act of homosexuality and lesbiasm..it is nasty. God Look down on your people please. Blessings

      @ Views Expressed… I hate homosexuality also, but the impoverishment of Dominica by Skerrit and his cabal, cannot go unnoticed. I am one of those who believe that caring Dominicans must vote in very large numbers to DUMP HE AND HIS GANG at the next general election.

If there is something else you would like to spill out sir, please go ahead but don’t ask for anything on the behalf of all Dominicans, we did ask you too and we do not want it.

      Views expressed, I respect your comments but for your information here are some definitions that I came across:
      From Encarta: Homophobia –irrational hatred of homosexuality: an irrational hatred, disapproval or fear of homosexuality, gay and lesbian people or their culture
      From the English dictionary: Homophobia – hate or fear of homosexuals
      Just thought I would attempt to correct your remark that “there is no such thing as Homophobia. It is a made up word conveniently used to defend the undefendable”.

      We do not hate our gay, lesbian or transgendered brothers /sisters at all. We are just saying that in our society there are laws to safeguard our way of life…to protect each and everyone. Some of these laws you may or may not like…but as it stands now it is illegal to engage in the act of buggery…Plain and simple.

      Myself I do not understand the drug dealers that sells coke /crack to our young people…destroying their lives in the process. I do not hate them…however there is a law that says this act is illegal…. should we decriminalize drug trafficking as well?

      This is a can of worms not worth opening because after we decimalize buggery, another group will lobby to decriminalize marijuana, then another group will start lobbying for the softer drugs….then when is it going to stop?

      The little we have left of our D/can society will be gone in the wind…..

      So my view is in support of Keeping the laws that states buggery is illegal.

    I cannot understand why these guys are fighting so much to legalize BORGA… and when you talk about the weed they keep the weed they keep their mouth shut.
    You are head of DPPA for almost 25 years. Have you ever seen a lesbian couple or a ‘gay’ couple procreate? Are you fighting for homosexual couples to plan parenthood? I think that you should be giving the health officials support in the fight for responsible sexual behaviour and decrease in the use of the morning after pill and leave that BORGA thing alone sir.

You mad or what ? That’s why some people especially the young generation will not respect these people or follow their advice. But I want to know what would he say if he had children. Would he still consider saying that or was that statement made just to give support to his friends that in that life? Well what ever the case may be that wasn’t called for, it got better/more important things to focus on.

    Aye folks, be on the alert for these psychological campaigns by those who are absolutely confused.

    I want to know if they will also seek to call for “two consenting adults, in the privacy of their homes, who are carrying on” using illegal drugs eg cocaine to be left alone by the police.

    It cannot be that certain mind-warped crazy reasons are only conveniently justifiable and ‘make sense’ for the means of legalizing homosexuality but are not applicable for the justification and legalization of other crimes.

    Be on the alert folks. Stand up against homosexuality.

        I could tell you of many families that were broken because a father or mother “came out” and went to live with a same sex “lover”.

        I could tell you of homosexual men who committed suicide. One of these was a friend. First he left behind a broken hearted wife and two sons. Later he committed suicide. Stats show homosexuals have a higher suicide rate.

        Homosexuals are responsible for spreading AIDS more than any other group in society. One man – an airline steward – in the States continued having unprotected sex after he KNEW he had tested positive for HIV until he had infected over 200 other men. There are counties where homosexual men are the one group with the largest number of AIDS victims.

        Besides the loss of human lives all this is a tremendous drain on the health care system. Most of the money comes from heterosexual tax payers. Needless to say it is money that could be used to educate our children or care for the elderly.

    Wait a while, Mr. serious man. Why should we follow th rest of the world with their gabbage. If people want to do what they want at their home, that is they but don’t come and ask for the contry to make it legal, man stop your rubbish. No one can tell you how to leave your life, poeple can choose to do whatever they want but don’t ask for that to be legal. so just now somebody will ask to make the sale and use of cocaine legal and I would before legalize that than homosexuality. Oh father, what is this world coming to.

        Fifty percent (50 %) of the babies are born to single mothers.

        Homosexual men are the one single group of people who make up the largest percentage of the AIDS victims.

        Neither of these statements would be true if only the people believed the New Testament and lived by its teachings.

        You are telling us to come out from under our rock?

        We are not perfect but by comparison we have a good life.

        We are not the ones over dosing, writing to Bella for help, in therapy, signing ourselves into a psych ward, in the divorce court, or committing suicide!

        “Come out from under your rock …”? Whoo! JESUS CHRIST is our Rock! And we are not under Him. We are on Him! It seems to be the best place to be.
