Letter to the editor Jax Goroka
Dame Carol Kidu has for a long time stood as an advocate for human rights. But I think she is pushing it too far in her quest to decriminalize homosexuality.
It is a blatant mockery and an unbecoming act for a person such as her to pursue. Homosexuality is a blasphemous lifestyle which insults the sanctity of Christian belief.
The claim that it was an accepted ritual does not justify the demand to have it decriminalized. That is a ridiculous base for support.
Should we go back and legalise acts on the premise that these were once recognised ritual. Then underage marriage and domestic violence should be legalised.
In the Bible, homosexuality is defined as an abomination. For some of us who are genuine Christians we are unhappy to be part of a country that supports a sinful lifestyle.
There are more serious cases for Dame Carol to pursue if she is truly concerned with human rights issues. There is the injustice faced by our West Papuan brothers and sisters.
Homosexuality is the impetus that provokes the growth and spread of HIV/AIDS in western countries. Why is Dame Carol trying to bring in a catalyst to aid HIV when it is killing us?
Dame Carol Kidu you are a lady held in highest esteem but this issue is forbidden even for you.
