Society should strongly oppose homosexual acts
This concerns the article "Gays take aim at Blaine" in the Jamaica Observer of July 13, 2012.
I commend columnist Betty Ann Blaine and encourage her not to be intimidated by the homosexual lobby.
In the words of Cardinal George of Chicago, the gay liberation movement has begun to "morph into something like the Ku Klux Klan". One might call them something akin to "Homo-Nazis". They have thus far succeeded in inverting the West's rule of law into the law of the jungle.
Society must become more militant in opposing the acceptance of homosexual acts. Homosexual acts are not a "human right". Of course, homosexuals must be treated with respect and compassion. Nonetheless, homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered. They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
In the West the legalisation of homosexuality has already led to the proliferation of crime and the destruction of the family unit. Children as young as five years old - who have no knowledge of sex - are being brainwashed in schools to accept the perversion of homosexual acts as being normal and praiseworthy. At special risk now is religious freedom. In Canada, Christians are being harassed, threatened, and hauled into court for their biblical and scientifically supported conviction that homosexuality is not normal and that marriage is between one man and one woman.
To choose someone of the same sex for one's sexual activity is to annul the rich symbolism and meaning, not to mention the goals, of the Creator's sexual design. Homosexual activity is not a complementary union, able to transmit life; and so it thwarts the call to a life of that form of self-giving which the Gospel says is the essence of Christian living. This does not mean that homosexual people are not often generous and giving of themselves; but when they engage in homosexual activity they confirm within themselves a disordered sexual inclination which is essentially self-indulgent.
Homosexuals tend to label recklessly and unjustly all those who oppose homosexual activity as "homophobic": the term "homophobia" itself is intended to denote a disorder. In this way they seek to impose their own disordered behaviour and lifestyle on society under the guise of tolerance. At the core we are dealing here, not with love, but with queer lust and the destruction of the family unit - the fundamental cell of society.
