A reply to Mr Cedric B. Harold

Tue Feb 19, 2013

Editor: Some writers present silly and outrageous positions in their arguments, by embellishment with an intellectual format, but stripped of its embellishment, the argument falls low to the smallest attempt of reasoning. Mr Cedric B. Harold is one such writer.{{more}}

The practice of sodomy/homosexuality would always be wrong, whether the majority supports it or not. It is an attack on God and destroys the morality of any society. The majority who lived in Sodom and Gomorrah practiced sodomy in defiance against God’s natural order of things, so that God came down in teophanic form and destroyed the cities on the plain, including Sodom and Gomorrah, demonstrating His displeasure for sodomy. It would ever be wrong because it is a civilization destroying disease, since no two persons of the same sex has the ability to procreate.

It is deceptive for you, Mr Harold, to purport that “law is a codification of social values, about how people en masses think or feel”. Are you saying to right thinking Vincentians that if the majority wishes to practise pedophilia that our laws should reflect that? Are you saying that if the majority calls for the practice of bestiality our laws should reflect that? So, if the majority calls for sex classes to be taught in school where our children are taught how to have sex, our laws should reflect that? What if the majority desires for cocaine to be used in our society? Should our laws reflect that also? Such reasoning is moronic! You need to think straight. When the majority in England, Scotland and France said no to sodomy it was still passed as law. You see, it is not a matter of majority, it is a matter of agenda!

Again you sought to redefine the role of religion. Are you God? You said that “the role of religion is a support to the conscience of individuals as they orient themselves around the world”. In other words, you are saying the role of religion is to endorse the immoralities that exist in the world. However, Christ said about true religion that “Ye are the salt of the earth.” Matthew 5:13. True religion preserves the world from immoralities and destruction. The proper role of religion is to be a watchdog for morality in the society and not a support to immorality, nor the majority in the pursuit of their wrongs. The Levitical laws are not the laws of Moses. God is the one who is responsible for the standard of morality. We did not evolve. What the majority wants should not be the basis of law. That is a threat to morality and the laws against sodomy and any sexual sin are divinely required laws which preserve morality.

You argue that “pure rationality should guide debaters”. Let me ask you this. What is rational about sodomy? The very act is irrational in itself because the outlet which men penetrate to find pleasure, in the lower part of the large intestine, known as the anus, its only function is to excrete waste. These sodomites lobby the authorities to pass certain laws to take away the rights and freedoms of the people who are not in support of this deviant sexual behaviour, so that the average person has to accept laws that justify sodomy in their daily activity, which goes against their conscience.

You need to understand that there is nothing right about the practice of sodomy and you need to reject it, 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. Romans 1:32
