Perish the thought!
February 28, 2008
According to Peter Espeut, having a secular state is part of the “worldwide homosexual agenda”. According to him and other deep-thinking individuals in Ja., we would have nothing short of a gay Armageddon, if the society decided to encourage independent thought:
“In some countries, there are moves to define the family in different ways: in addition to one man, one woman and children, a family may be defined (they say) as two women and children, or two men and children.
Questions are being asked here in Jamaica: why should Christianity be allowed to impose its ‘way’ on the rest of society? If two men want to get married and call themselves ‘a family’, and adopt children, why shouldn’t they be allowed to? Why shouldn’t we teach this to our children as ‘normal’, a lifestyle every bit as good and acceptable as one man, one woman and children?
Should we not allow our children to choose the lifestyle they wish, and to educate them about their options? Teach them from primary school that when they reach puberty they have the option to have sex with men or women, and to marry a man or a woman. And why not marry both a man and a woman at the same time? What is wrong with that!”
