Petition Against LGBTPQ Law in Trinidad and Tobago

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Trinidad and Tobago are the twin island states at the end of the Caribbean chain of the West Indies. Since being re-discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1498, Trinidad has been mainly dominated by Christians, as the Spanish were Catholics. After Emancipation and during Indentureship, Presbyterians were introduced which diversified the Christian population. Also, with the coming of the East Indians, Hinduism was also introduced. Since that time to now, many new religions, many syncretic, have been introduced and we have diversified as a people, culture and nation, especially where Tobago was lashed on to our side. As a twin island state today, where we are mostly Theological, partly Metaphysical and to a small extent Positivist, as we realize that religion is a very important factor in daily life. We can see from many aspects of religion where it is mandatory for a man and a woman to be together. In relevant teachings, The Holy Quaran declares that men having sex with each other should be punished. The death penalty instead comes from the Hadith, or accounts of the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad. In Bible teachings, Leviticus 20:13 states that "If a man also lie 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." These two are just examples of the many instances where religion speaks against homosexuality and LGBTQ. We must ensure that this scurge doesn't plague out entire country by a passing of a law. Think or your children, and your grandchildren and great grandchildren. Would you want them to be living in a world where the gay male teacher can interfere with your sons and take their innocence? How would you react if your son/daughter brought home someone of the same sex and said that the person was their consensual partner or fiance? I have asked quite a few persons that last question in which most replied "I have no problem with it, I just don't want it to happen to me and my family." Doesn't religion teach looking out for one another.  Even if you don't believe in religion, the scientific community also disapproves. According to science, everything has it's place and role. Cells make up Tissues, that make up Organs, that make up systems that help an organisms body to function properly. Sex has the function of making way for reproduction.That's it's main role. Which can be done, by only a male and female of the species. Hence, neither two men nor two women can reproduce without the other sex. It doesn't make any sense and basically they are just there wasting resources. It's like having a car, a license and insurance, but travelling to work every day. It doesn't make any sense. 

On the other hand, we make it easier for criminals to get away with crime. For example: Two men can rape your daughter and get away simply by saying that they are gay. Not only does this add strain to society, but to the workload of an already struggling Police and Justice system. Prostitution will be prevalent and now both your sons and daughters will be put at risking of being victims of the sex trade.

Women are important to society just like men. Women have developed over the years to be smart, quick, reliable, and flexible. A family with two men could never replace the positive impacts and benefits of having a woman in the home. The same as, a family with two women could never replace the positive impacts and benfits of having a man in the home. In many studies around the world, it shows that both and mother and father are required to raise a well-rounded individual.

In conclusion, these are some societal facts that go towards ensuring that the LGBTQ bill isn't passed as law. They fight for equal rights for a consensual union that isn't equal. Expect society to be normal when they can do what they please and have so called 'rights'. Every citizen has rights. How are they more important? My fellow citizens, do not let a man who lives London, come to Trinidad and Tobago to fight against our legal system because he feels violated by homosexuality being outlawed. If he wants, let him stay in London. If we let them get away with this, a lot weird bills would be passing so that they can recieve priveleges while families still need homes and a percentage of the population still lives in poverty. What we need in Trinidad and Tobago is order and common sense. Not LGBTQ bills. Sign this petition before it is too late!
