Do I pose a threat?

As a kid I always dreamt of a better country; I got interested in politics and looked forward to joining the House of Representative with the hope of ascending to the office of the President. Dreams do come true; I am an HONOURABLE MEMBER of the House of Representatives, I haven’t been able to pass any bill yet but I’m working on it. I’m entitled to a fee for each sitting and I’m thinking since I haven’t come up with a bill I can suggest “Wristwatch Allowance”. Please don’t go rolling your eyes, I need to be seated on time, a good and very expensive wristwatch will go a long way, still on the allowance the female members need to look their best especially their hair so I’ll put in a word for “Hair Allowance”.  DO I POSE A THREAT?

I grew up in a family where almost all my needs were met. Dad made sure my siblings and I were comfortable, mum ran a boutique to enable her spend more time with us cos’ dad was a Manager in the bank, we all know how time consuming it is. Down the road there was a misappropriation of funds by a junior staff; dad had to pay the price, he was fired, that was when everything went haywire. He became a shadow of himself, mom lost her boutique, we had to move into a smaller apartment, and our lifestyles had to change. I needed to keep up with the Joneses; a friend of a friend introduced me to a line of servicing business. All I needed to do was a few minutes of pleasure, travel as an escort on business trips.  These men needed my extraordinary services, a friend once told me ‘My gift will make way for me and cause me to stand before great men’ although in this case my gift is making me lie down close to great men.  DO I POSE A THREAT?

My childhood days were marred with sexual abuse; my uncle at home did a great deal of baby-sitting. He went beyond baby-sitting to bed-coaching; he did a lot of horrible things to me. I couldn’t tell anyone at home; mum had warned that I’ll get pregnant if any guy touched me, uncle had touched me so many times but I wasn’t yet pregnant so I really didn’t know what to tell mum. I grew up with that secret, guys were monsters to me, and they all reminded me of uncle. I gained admission into the university; became a loner and an avid reader at least my good grades could make me feel good. I met a bookie like me in the library; we became friends, she always had my back, she introduced me into the world of lesbianism, something didn’t feel right on the inside. I was faced with the same problem of silence again, the church would have been my best bet but I heard, people like me were given the award WORST SINNERS EVER LIVED. I didn’t need to be treated like an outcast so I kept on struggling on my own to break loose. DO I POSE A THREAT?

Isn’t it amazing to have a Nation that proffers solution to our problems? They have answered the 3rd question for us by signing a Bill of a 14 year jail term. I have a few more questions

  • Are we saying a jail term will automatically change their sexual preference?
  • What happens after a person has served time?
  • Is there any Bill for child molesters?
  • Is there any Bill for Corrupt Public officers?

I did a post on something similar in the past; you can read it up here They should be jailed in fact stoned to death   While we are casting our net to catch the supposed culprits, our little girls are getting raped, three men are still walking free after molesting a young lady did I mention it was anal rape for three consecutive years, here’s the story Stripped at midday  who knows maybe those men declared drinks on the day the bill was passed. Do I applaud homosexuality? NO; just the same way we all need to stick to God’s original plan for sexual intimacy. If we want to portray ourselves as a moral society then there should be a Bill in place for all sexual offenders including homosexuality, adultery, fornication, bestiality, paedophilia etc. We need to go the whole nine yards. With the outburst, I see a group of people filled with hate for their fellow human beings some people even suggested death for the culprits. May God help us all as we practise selective religion?

MY TWO CENTS……

They should be jailed, in fact stoned to death.

Penalty

I was with a friend and a song came up on the radio and there was this glow in my eyes; the song is so dear to my heart and somehow we deviated to the artiste who did the song. Incidentally he was gay, my friend made a statement that gave birth to this post and I quote him “When I found out he was gay, I stopped liking him”.

Yea I can see all my “zealous faithful Christians” nodding their heads in agreement to his remarks. I watched the session on the Anti-gay bill by the House of Representatives, which eventually resulted in a 14 year jail term. I’m pretty sure, if the hearts of some people were revealed, we would have heard a death sentence by stoning.

I recently asked a friend and I ask you the same question “If you found out I was gay, would you change the way you feel about me”? Over the years there has been a whole lot of debate on the issue of homosexuality. From the Church to the street, there has been protest on the issue. You’ll be wondering where I’m headed with all these talk? Strap your seatbelts and enjoy the ride.

Here’s my take on it. Homosexuality is WRONG. (Someone just heaved a sigh of relief, saying thank God she’s not gay) but don’t get too excited. The same way it’s wrong is the same way adultery, fornication or any other form of sexual sin is wrong. I’ve heard people say they prefer lesbians to homosexuals *smh.

How come there’s no jail term for other sexual sins. I don’t know of other religions but I can speak of Christianity. The only way we know a thing is wrong is through information. We all got the information that homosexuality is wrong from the Bible but I’m seriously wondering why there’s no national debate on the others. Is this a case of lesser evil???

Am I in support of the ordination of a gay priest or bishop? NO. The same way I won’t support someone who’s involved in adultery to lead a church. We live in times where we practise selective reading. We want to go to a church where the pastor will tell us only what we want to hear while some areas in our lives have the sign Out of Bounds. Once that area is touched we change churches.

Out of bounds

Who made us judges over homosexuals? If we want to wear those shoes, then we’ve got to go the whole nine yards. We need to speak up against any form of sexual sin. Until we start doing that, we’ll remain HYPOCRITES. This reminds me of an opinion by a Pastor  on the woman with the Alabaster box. The woman passed all the men that dined with Jesus, they all murmured Sinner Woman under their breath but couldn’t restrain her, it may be some of them there had patronised her in the past.

We scream Stone her! Stone her!! Stone her!!! In the morning for adultery; in the night we get lost in passion with someone who’s not our spouse, and we tag it a cute name, having fun or an affair. “Shun immorality and all sexual looseness. Any other sin a man commits is outside the body but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who lives within you… so then, honour God and bring glory to Him in your body”. 1 Cor. 6 vs 18 – 20 AMP.

Hatred won’t change anyone. On the contrary show Love. It’s been said it’s only in the church, a wounded soldier is sent out. I’ll end with the lyrics of Jesus Friend of Sinner by Casting Crowns.

Jesus, friend of sinners

We have strayed so far away

We cut down people in your name

But the sword was never ours to swing

Jesus, friend of sinners

The truth’s become so hard to see

The world is on their way to You

But they’re tripping over me

Always looking around but never looking up

I’m so double minded

A plank eyed saint with dirty hands

And a heart divided

Oh Jesus, friend of sinners

Open our eyes to world

At the end of our pointing fingers

Let our hearts be led by mercy

Help us reach with open hearts

And open doors

Oh Jesus, friend of sinners

Break our hearts for what breaks Yours,

LOADS OF LOVE
