PLP Supports Gay Rights

Monday 27th, June 2011 / 08:30 Published by

The Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) has added its support to a recent United Nations Human Rights Council resolution that affirmed the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people to choose their own sexual identity.

PLP leader Perry Christie indicated at a press conference this week that the opposition supports such “progressive policies.”

Deputy Prime Minister Brent Symonette last week said that The Bahamas also supports the resolution “in principle.”

The resolution, which narrowly passed in the council in Geneva, Switzerland, expressed “grave concern” about discrimination against gays throughout the world and affirmed that freedom to choose sexuality is a human right.

The Bahamas does not have a seat on the council.

The PLP, who has several closet gays at the top of the organisation, has no difficulty agreeing with the government on the issue, Christie stated.

  • All humans have equal rights. Who is standing up for Jesus? The bible clearly states Homosexuality is an abomination, just like Adultery and all other sins, none greater, so do not come with the “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone”, we use this verse to try to save face. As a Christian nation, I say stand up for Jesus. Sodom and Gomorah were destroyed and what we see now is the USA and the rest of Europe, trying to tell us that we have to look at same sex couples hugging and kissing right in front of our children. I do not think so. Why isn’t anyone trying to find out why they are that way. Do they run a test during pregnancy to ensure the chromozones are balanced? That is what they need to be doing, reversing it, making sure that if a boy is in the stomach, that he has the right Y chromo… they are doing every other research. God knows, its not right. And this does not mean that because people disagree, that they do not like gays or lesbians, they can live their lives, but do not expect to be married, because God made that union between a Man and a Women, Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. We should shower all alternative life style people with love, and help them to turn from their sins, just like we help an Adulterer to turn from sin. Bahamas, we must maintain our Christian heritage, and finally be one of the nations to STAND UP FOR JESUS!
