Is Homosexuality Threatening Fragile Democracies?



Holy-Bible21If our cherished democracy remains unchecked, the Western democratic powers could destroy the established moral institution of  developing nations, which they have power to control socio-economically.

Since the year, 2000 when United Nations Millennium Declaration became a workable institution, the inhabitants of the earth have been idealised with good and bad policies. The institutional policies have controlling influence on the poorer nations that could not survive without economic package from its colonial masters.

The Western promoters of democracy are pressurising developing countries to legalise homosexuality. These wealthy nations have threatened to withdraw socio-economic packages that are annually offered countries they had colonised in history.

But what is homosexuality according to religious definition? “Sexual interest and attraction to members of one’s own sex. This attraction usually, but not always leads to physical contact culminating in orgasm. Female homosexuality is often referred to as lesbians,” The New Encylopaedia Britannica, Vol. 6 page 31.

“Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex,” Catechism of the Catholic Church, page 504.

Although the third world countries are not industrially or economically developed, they are culturally institutionalised before the European colonisation. Most of their cultural disciplines correspond to cherished Christian and other religious principles that regulate their moral actions.

The western democratic authorities are destroying the moral law that the God of the entire world had instituted. According to most religious records, especially the Bible, God would condemn nations, communities, societies and individuals that promote any form of immorality, especially the prohibited sexual behaviour.

Homosexuality was an established cultural practice in the Hellenized world that influenced the Roman kingdom in the Judeo-Christian era. The Judeo-Christian congregation has demonised it because God had condemned its practice in history.

“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion,” Lev 18:22-23.

In addition to homosexuality, He outlawed sexual union between humankind and animals. If the same democratic authorities could declare sexual union between human beings and animals unlawful and punish them; why shouldn’t the same authorities punish the homosexuals to discourage the illicit sexual practice?

It is surprising that Christian Europe has recognised homosexuality and pressurizing countries she had colonised for its adaptation. It seems that European nations have forgotten that they have Christianized most of the third world countries.

“The ancient Greek accepted homosexuality and in some respects considered it a higher form of love than heterosexuality. Judeo-Christian culture has generally perceived it as sinful, and thus homosexuality was traditionally viewed as socially unacceptable through most western culture” The New Encylopaedia Britannica, Vol. 6 page 31.

If the democratic powers had integrated uprightness all immorality and are compeling nations seeking democratic governments to adopt, then, the future of the religious and political world has been destroyed. Jesus the Messiah has predicted these Belial activities that religio-political powers are fulfilling among nations.

If the intellectuals, especially the lawmakers and government pass law, which could impregnate immorality on earth, what wisdom has they? If religious and political leaders are afraid to protect the people who elected them from being animalized, then how worthy are they?

Religious communities are without teeth, for some reverend ministers, theologians and other holders’ of religious titles have been found guilty in the illicit sexuality. It is embarrassing that gay theologians have established religious organisations, which are patronized by those who have appetite for the kingdom of God.

Be it acknowledged that God has never changed, and that illicit sexual behaviours are continually condemned. Although democracy may integrate uprightness and immorality, the moral law couldn’t be replaced with certain Universal Human Rights law that destroys the foundation God has established.

“If a man also lies with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them,” Lev 20:13.

After the Second World War homosexuality has been practised and recognised by most lawmakers. It has political protection among direct and indirect democratic nations. “Homosexuality became a political issue in some countries during the late 20th century, as a late offshoot of various civil rights movements of the late 60’s,” The New Encylopaedia Britannica, Vol. 6 page 31.

Under the gospel and democratic dispensation, capital punishment has been outlawed, but the perpetrators can be given justifiable punishment to deter others, especially the youth who shall become the future leaders. God will punish individuals for their committed transgression while the entire nation shall be afflicted if the government enacts laws to impregnate immorality, such as homosexuality.

It is revealed biblically that God punish all forms of immorality, as He had judged and punished the generations that have lived, which had destroyed the moral institution.

“For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly” 2 Peter 2:4 6.

Europeans who are socio-economically developed and are supportive of the third world countries are not god but human beings. While democracy empowers socio-economic development, it should never replace God with its religio-political leasdership.
