Homosexuality and the Christian world view

Dear Editor,

Leon Suseran (SN, June 26) inserts his brand of intellectual misrepresentation into the LGBT debate with Juan Edghill. How-ever, we must move to sound analysis on this vexing issue.

Christians have always found comfort in providing the facts, truth, details and evidence that Guyana and Guyanese need to make responsible and informed decisions.

The American Amb-assador and the administration whose policy he represents, must now ponder the consequences of not advocating in similar vein for (American) Dr Charles Socarides’ counter-indictment ‘Sexual Politics and Scientific Logic: The Issue of Homosexuality’ in their naïve and reckless effort to justify and export the LGBT lifestyle to a querulous world. If the grim detail of the September 2010 report by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC Fact Sheet: HIV and AIDS among Gay and Bisexual Men) will not inform the Ambassador’s comments, then the sobering reality of the refrain ‘You can fool some of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time’ must temper his uninformed zeal.

How much more so should Kathleen Melonakos’ ‘Why Isn’t Homosexuality Considered a Disorder on the Basis of its Medical Conse-quences?’ Predictably, the Ambassador like Mr Suseran will not address these facts any time soon.

Why do Guyana’s Christians and law-abiding citizens generally have to oppose Mr Suseran, SASOD and gay rights generally? The bottom line is that homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality and transsexualism (constituting the ‘community’ that defines the LGBT movement) are contrary to key creation-structures in the Christian world-view – manhood, womanhood, sex, family, marriage, fact, truth, detail, evidence, logic. Simply put, the existence/celebration of the one means the nullification of the other.

So just how comfortable are Christians in Guyana with being told by Mr Suseran what their roles are relative to their very survival? Perhaps Melanie Phillips’ article ‘How Britain is turning Christianity into a crime’ will answer that question.

Sound public policy obviously lies in medical/psychiatric/spiritual treatment, healing, recovery

and the eradication of the LGBT pathologies, considered by its victims as essential to their well-being.

Yours faithfully,

Roger Williams
