RELIGIOUS leader Dr Myles Munroe has fiercely condemned homosexuality in the wake of a recent gay pride celebration in Grand Bahama, referring to it as a “massive deception…dismantling the very core of the natural existence of humanity.”
The current back and forth with Pastor Myles Munroe and Foreign Minister Fred Mitchell is a clear display that those who speak of equality and human rights are very intolerant when it comes to “looking at what the public is seeing”.
Fred Mitchell’s dedication to promoting human rights does not appear to extend to the rights of women.
There has been lots of talk about the rights of LGBT people in The Bahamas, yet the discrimination against women – that is written into our flawed constitution – is continuously ignored.
Bahamians of all political and denominational persuasions who hold traditional values near and dear must stand united and oppose Mr Mitchell’s radical secularization agenda before its too late.
Many people in The Bahamas don’t want Fred Mitchell as prime minister mostly because of his attitude and behaviour, not because they think he is gay or because he supports gay rights.
Andrew Allen rebuts criticism against Fred Mitchell’s support of gays in The Bahamas saying, “I want gay people to have the same rights and legal capacities as everyone else.”
As one of the persons who will be intimately involved in any major judicial decision, he should have exercised professional discretion and reserved his comments for a private forum.
As we watch with complete amazement and fright at the hysteria, irrationality and illogic and prejudice that goes on with the debate on gambling, other personal rights stand to lose big time by the same prejudice.
