Gay marriage, abortion not the threat? The following is a response sent to Newsday in Trinidad and Tobago on June 5, 2014, when the following article
was noticed (“Gay marriage, abortion not the threat” By Andre Bagoo Sunday, June 1 2014;
http://www.newsday.co.tt/news/0,195593.html ) We have no knowledge at this time if the response will be published by Newsday! Dear Editor, The article makes for painful reading, since it avoids ... like every anti-Christian argument on this troubling subject ... the responsibility to address fact, truth, detail, evidence, and logic. "Gay-advocacy", and its defence thereof, may perhaps signal the end of the law, the end of evidence! It essence, when the sum total of the evidence militating against Ivor Archie's comments is considered, his "advice" to Christians becomes foolishness masquerading as scholarship. It is premised on the hope, or the certainty, that Christians ... do not read! And that they (Christians) fail to understand that secular evidence agrees with the Biblical position! I have learned the hard way to deal forcefully with an inclination to passivity by some Christians, and their gullibility for the glib garbage peddled by "legal advisors" like Ivor Archie, by just referring to the opposing "dissent" arguments in settled legal cases in the USA. Let's take two examples ... The fact that gay-advocacy is using the American Bar Association and judicial tyranny as a central instrument in their push to "convince" Christians that their position is "wrong" should be warning enough to Trinidadians, and to Ivor Archie. Newsday should urge its readers to read Justice Antonin Scalia's read/written dissent in Lawrence vs. Texas in 2003, when he was forced to make the following point, inter alia: "...
At the end of its opinion - having laid waste the foundations of our rational-basis jurisprudence - the Court says that the present case "does not involve whether the government must give formal recognition to any relationships that homosexual persons seek to enter," Ante, at 17. Do not believe it
! ..." We know now, in 2014, that he was right! You literally have to read this dissent to understand the liberties that the court took with hitherto settled law. Ivor Archie, in this stunning act of attempted disinformation, is trying to do the same thing. Secondly, your readers should also look at the 40 pages of dissent that followed the 2013-ruling in USA vs Windsor, in which a liberal-leaning Supreme Court of the USA found basis (in 25 pages) to redefine "marriage" as previously outlined in the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Hint: when a 25-page ruling is followed by 40 pages of dissent, Christians had better take notice ,,, and READ! The bottom line is ... homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality and transsexualism (constituting the "community" that defines the LGBT movement) are the ONLY psycho-sexual disorders or pathologies so diagnosed that see as their inevitable and non-negotiable ends the destruction of key creation-structures in the Christian world-view ... manhood, womanhood, sex, family, marriage, fact, truth, detail evidence, logic!
