Defending the Right of the Male, Female and Third Gender

Minister of the Environment, Denis Lowe

It is no secret that Minister Denis Lowe is NOT a person held in high esteem by the BU household. He has repeatedly demonstrated that he belongs on the lowest rung of the moral and ethical ladder. He will be remembered by BU first as Peter Allard’s stool pigeon and second as the Cahill Energy instigator. Do a search of ‘Lowe Allard’  and ‘Lowe Cahill’  in the BU search box to secure bedside reading.

His recent swipe at those who advocate for same sex marriage and women who are childless has catapulted him into the news cycle, again. To quote him about same sex union, “I still believe in the biblical way of life,” and the dig at Mia Mottley, “he was not about to support any idea that the greatness of the nation is bound up in any individual who does not regard the importance of motherhood, of family, and of marriage according to the biblical standard. We want our boys and our girls to grow up in a society where they are not embarrassed because they live in a house where mum is a woman and dad is a man”.

The BU household is not a fan of the homosexual lifestyle whether born or learned, BUT, we respect the right of any individual regardless of sexual orientation to coexist with their fellow man without fear of being persecuted or discriminated against. And our laws both in the spirit and letter should articulate that ALL minority groups in our society are protected. After all, we live in the 21st century!

A recent article in the Canadian publication Battleground Barbados: LGBT activists face off against North American homophobes in the Caribbean Prime Minister Freundel Stuart was quizzed on what many regard is the country’s archaic buggery law. The following extract from the article is of interest:-

“There is a lobby that is trying to get the government, trying to get successive governments, in Barbados to decriminalize, as they say, homosexuality,” Stuart said. “But you can only decriminalize something that is already a criminal offence.”

He acknowledged that almost every family includes people who are LGBT, but stated that the country’s Christian character precludes any further steps to change the law.

Stuart then launched into a condemnation of many of the aims of his country’s LGBT rights movement.

“Those people, who feel that we should create an environment where they can practise their lifestyles in public on high noon on a sunny day,” he said, “want even the very limited controls we have, removed.”

“We respect that — as long as you don’t become too evangelical about it and want to convert all of us to it,” Stuart said, prompting a round of laughter in the room.

While the prime minister argues that the buggery laws are about consent, he’s contradicted by a prosecutor who actually brought forward charges last year.

Elwood Watts, principal Crown counsel in a buggery case, said in no uncertain terms that buggery does not require consent. “As long as the penis enters the anus, and there is a complaint, it is an offence,” Watts explained. “It does not matter if you claim the person consented or did not consent.”

And according to LGBT activists, the prosecutor’s views reflect how the law is viewed by everyday people, the police and the courts.

The dig Lowe made at Leader of the Opposition Mia Mottley is not worthy of a response except to confirm BU’s lowly opinion of the man who represents Christ Church East.

The following video is instructive.

    This is a sticky one. You all know how much people agree with Lowe on this one? Of course they’ll not publicly state it, but they do agree with him. When the leader of the young Dems stepped down as leader earlier this year because of the lack of support her party had for the ‘gay agenda’, she did not get much support from those leaving comments on the article on BT. I personally believe they shouldnt be gay marriage but civil unions are more appropriate. Politicians takes digs at each other all the time. Didnt Mia take a dig at King David’s sexuality in the House of Parliament? I certainly remember so. The politicians does curse and party, eat and drink with each other at the same time.

    David the blogmaster quoting Denni Lowe “he was not about to support any idea that the greatness of the nation is bound up in any individual who does not regard the importance of motherhood, of family, and of marriage according to the biblical standard. ”

    So is fatherhood important?

    is Lowe a father?

    Is Lowe married?

    Does Lowe regard his own birth family as important?

    Does Lowe treat his siblings right?

    And if Lowe is not married can we assume then that he is Biblically celibate?

    When people don’t have anything sensible to say they should really shut to phuck up.

    So what is a civil union?

    And what is a marriage?

    You do understand don’t you that all Barbados marriages are civil unions?

    Nobody is Barbados is married unless the Ministry of Home Affairs, a department of the civil state civil state says that they are married.

    The priests and pastors can hold whatever ceremonies they feel like, but you are NOT married unless the Ministry of Home Affairs grants you that licence/that permission.

    If the state wishes to permit gay people to marry each other (because we must never forget that there are already gay married people in Barbados [married to heterosexual people] then it is no business of the church.

    Clearly neither the state nor the church have any problems with marrying gay people, as long as those gay people marry heterosexual people.

    Look at your marriage certificates people. Is there anything on your marriage certificate that asks whether you are gay or straight?

    Does the Ministry of Home Affairs know whether you are gay or straight?

    Does your pastor/priest know whether you are gay or not?

    Does even your spouse know whether you are gay or straight?

    To be fair to Mr. Watts, the standard for buggery and for sexual assault are the same. Basically the state is saying that NOBODY can put their body parts nor any object into someone else’s body without consent, and that if there is a complaint the state must investigate and if the state can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that there was no consent that a criminal conviction can be recorded.

    Elwood Watts, principal Crown counsel in a buggery case, said in no uncertain terms that buggery does not require consent. “As long as the penis enters the anus, and there is a complaint, it is an offence,” Watts explained. “It does not matter if you claim the person consented or did not consent.”

    In a sexual case…sexual assault does not require consent. As long as the penis [or any object] enters any bodily orifice and there is a complaint, it is an offence, It does not matter if you claim the person consented or did not consent.

    The principle is that our bodies are inviolate, and must not be entered into without our consent.

    Yesterday, we saw a spokesperson of the Church wade into this issue. I read Minister Lowe referring to “biblical way of life” and the PM being quoted “the country’s Christian character precludes any further steps to change the law.”

    Allow me to share the following

    “Reverence for God and obedience to His commandments are the only true sources of wisdom and understanding. The foundations of our organization were laid by men who feared God and openly confessed the Lord Jesus Christ. They were moral and lived a life shaped by their obedience to the laws of God.”

    Sound good? Now what if I tell you this came from a webpage of the KKK?

    Hiding behind religion, or rather, what is OUR INTERPRETATION of any religion, cannot allow us to have laws which are clearly discriminatory.

    Who says that 2 men or 2 women or 2 people cannot effectively raise a child? For crying out loud…how many were raised by their grannies or aunties, when a father was nowhere to be found.

    Time for that law to be struck from the books. It is discriminatory and offensive to many.

    UK Facebook users can now choose from one of 71 gender options, including asexual, polygender and two-spirit person, following the feature’s successful integration in the US.

    Users can choose a different gender option from the previous male and female choices by selecting ‘custom’ in the gender tab of their profiles.

    In addition, people who select a custom gender will now have the ability to choose the pronoun they’d like to be referred to publicly — male (he/his), female (she/her) or neutral (they/their).

    No Vincent.

    Two.

    ONE: The law which makes it illegal for consenting men to have sex with each other in private.

    TWO: The law which permits parents, guardians, teachers and any others to beat children.

    Because remember there is no law, and there has never been any law, which permits consenting women from having sex with each other.

    I am not sure why we want to keep these evil colonial laws. As a child I lived next door to a woman who was a “driver” of the “third gang” on a plantation. She had a “dog hunter/dog whopper” with which to beat the child labourers if they did not work fast enough or well enough.

    This put me off beating people. Because truthfully the beatings were not/are not for the best interest of the one being beaten.

    The beatings are for the benefit of the beater.

    ONE: We need to KEEP OUR BEDROOM BUSINESS BUSINESS PRIVATE.

    TWO: We need to stop peeping through the bedroom windows of CONSENTING ADULTS.

    THREE: We need to stop beating each other. Especially we need to stop beating our children.

    No priest or pastor, or rabbi, or imam can marry anybody in Barbados unless such religious leader has first been granted permission by the Ministry of Home Affairs (the civil authority) to do so. Any marriage done without the permission of a person authorized by the Ministry of Home Affairs to conduct marriages is therefore null and void.

    Therefore ALL marriages conducted in Barbados are already civil unions.

    The couple is free to have the ceremony conducted in a religious building, and free to have the ceremony conducted by a religious leader.

    Androgynous Myths
    By Mathew N. Schmalz

    Androgynes have a significant place in the human religious imagination. Androgynes are people who embody both male and female characteristics. But this basic definition must necessarily be qualified by recognizing the diverse forms of androgyny. For example, there are physiological androgynes—such as hermaphrodites—but there are also psychological androgynes. Wendy Doniger identifies three kinds of psychological androgynes: a “splitting androgyne,” who embodies male and female qualities but must “split” to become creative; a “fusing androgyne,” who must merge with a male or female side of the personality to become bisexual; and a “two in one” androgyne, often represented by a couple that unites in a perfect love. There are also androgyne-like figures such as eunuchs and transvestites.

    Isn’t the same man who is taking your dear beloved country to economic hell a self-confessed disciple of Sir Cameron having spent many nights knelling at the throne of the deceased kingmaker?

    Don’t you think that if a born-again ‘Fumbling’ bachelor can occupy the Court on Two-Mile Hill so too can an alleged virgin to men, just as Queen Liz the First was considered to be?
    After all they are both two odd peas ‘hiding’ in the same LGBT pod!

    Virgin Atlantic hires people (both married and unmarried) from the LGBT community.
    Are you going to stop them from flying to Barbados or fingerprint them to monitor their movements in case they convert Christianized’ Bajans to their lifestyle?

    Why don’t you discuss the decriminalization of marijuana as recommended by the boss of Virgin Atlantic instead of other people’s bedroom business?

    After all, he is a bigger player in the Bajan tourism business than even the soon to be ‘has–been’ ‘Stewart’.

    @Kevin
    well you are correct, as I suspected, for I too have many family members in Barbados. “You all know how much people agree with Lowe on this one? Of course they’ll not publicly state it, but they do agree with him.”

    Incredible silence from the blogsphere. If this was about discrimination based on skin tone and not sexual orientation, we would have 230+ comments by many.

    I fear, because this topic is not going away, this will cause harm to all those places which have such legislation, but depend on other countries to supply tourists, and provide financial assistance. The day groups, like for example Tax Fairness in Canada, who oppose all those dual tax treaties, they wish tax dollars kept at home, discover to tie laws on sexual orientation to tax issues, they will place their politicians in an untenable situation. Meaning MY ass at home or YOUR ass abroad. And we know who wins those battles.

    Obviously, the message here is for the BLP. Time to dump your leader, because Barbadians are unlikely to elect a party lead by an openly lesbian person, at this stage in their social development. The silent majority oppose that. Add in the fact she is a woman, and you have a dual reason.

    all the fringe groups are lining up behind the crooked Barbarbado Labour Paty. Because they know that the upright members of the Democratic Labour Party will not do their dirty bidding.

    If Bajans were to ever, and its not going to happen, miss and put in the crooked Barbados Labour Party these deprave people will be rubbing their hands with glee.

    the bullers want bulling decriminalised

    the wickers want wicking decriminalised

    the prostitutes want whoring decriminalised

    the weed smokers want the herb decriminalised

    the Muslims want to set up Sharia law

    All the good, moral, Christian laws on our statute books which have protected Bajans for generations will be repealed. It will be open season on decent BAJANS.

    These groups seem to have been given an assurance that their wishes will be met by any new BLP administration.

    Ask the BLP to dispute this.

    Chuckle….you are so correct EWB would not give this present lot the time of day.

    What you and others must realise is that their consultant has told them that the one thing many Bimmers will galvanise around is homophobia.

    Unfortunately what they and the consultant did not understand is the difference in turning galvanise into votes for a totally discredited party.

    Look in todays Nation and you will see one of the newest DEM members agreeing with Commissiong.

    They can only hope that things change in 12 months because as of now they are on a hiding to no where.

    That is your opinion.

    What you and your BLP must state that statements like that are made simply to garner votes for the BLP.

    You are not fooling anyone, Bajans know that the Govt. has done a great job keeping the ship of state afloat.

    THIS TOO WILL HAPPEN IN BARBADOS:

    Complainants in Muslim scholar rape case being intimidated – mother

    The mother of three of the boys allegedly raped by Muslim Scholar Nezaam Ali reported to the police a few weeks ago that persons have been taking photographs of her sons which she sees as an act of intimidation.

    Overcome with frustration and on the brink of tears, the woman expressed the belief that attempts are being made to drive fear into her and her children.

    http://www.stabroeknews.com/2017/news/stories/05/21/complainants-muslim-scholar-rape-case-intimidated-mother/

    WE NOTICE WITH ALARM THE CLOSE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE CROOKED BARBADOS LABOUR PARTY AND THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY.

    The DLP has to protect Barbados from the BLP and the degenerates surrounding it.

    VOTE DEMOCRATIC LABOUR PARTY to save Barbados.

    @Fractured BLP May 22, 2017 at 7:29 PM “The Canadian High Commissioner to Barbados has declared her support for same – sex unions.”

    She did not.

    She asked again that the Barbados decriminalize the sex between CONSENTING ADULT MEN. Even the Barbados government acknowledges that ADULT MEN who have CONSENSUAL sex with each other are never prosecuted. So since nobody is ever prosecuted why is the 19th century buggery law still on the books?

    And since Barbados has never had any law against sex between CONSENTING ADULT WOMEN why do we forbid adult men from enjoying the same rights as adult women?

    I wish that wunna mischievous people would stop mis-quoting the good High Commissioner.

    I can’t speak for the lady since I have never met her, but if it was me I would tell you that Bajans have always been cool with homosexuality, and has always permitted female homosexuals to live together without any interference from the government and that I will therefore abolish the 19th century buggery law and grant to adult men the same rights which have always been enjoyed by adult female homosexuals.
