Is Plp Pro-Gay?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

BAHAMIANS mustn’t put too much stock into a Nassau based downmarket tabloid newspaper, which recently asserted that there is currently an ongoing intramural feud between heterosexuals and homosexuals in the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP).

Bahamians must give the PLP the benefit of the doubt that the there is absolutely no merit to the said allegations, especially in light of the party’s decades old tradition of holding prayer breakfast meetings during convention and in engaging Christian ministers.

The PLP is deeply rooted in the Baptist fundamentalist tradition. Remember, it was the late Dr Harcourt W Brown, pastor of the historic Bethel Baptist Church, who assisted the fledgling PLP during the 1960s for the achievement of Majority Rule. Still, with our penchant for engaging in deductive reasoning, the PLP troika of Philip Brave Davis, Chester Cooper and Fred Mitchell should issue a formal statement regarding their political organisation’s position on the LGBT matter. Is the PLP pro-gay or not? Inquiring minds want to know. Is it high time that the ongoing LGBT speculations are laid to rest.

Kevin it is none of your business who is gay or not. Gay people are children of God first and fore most. and God loves them as much as he loves the straight

Listen to Noah Stuart. sing ,"I will walk with God" He is a gay man. but God looked beyond that and blessed him with a beautiful voice.

Is is every voters business when it comes to the values of those serving in higher office in their country. A persons values influences their views on public policy which affects all, including my children!. So yeah, I want to know if they are gay, marijuana smokers, wife beaters, sweet hearters and everything else if they are up for public office! Then I decide who I will vote for!!

People being gay does not affect your children. Being gay is genetics rather than anything else

Mr. Evans, with all the truly un Christian things going on in this country, this is what your inquiring mind is bent on finding out? Seriously?
Perhaps the inquiring minds that have influenced, or infected, this nation should step back and try to put the modern world in context. If this was a race to heaven, by country, were would we be in ranking? Could it be the religious leaders who have lost their way?

The religious leaders have never steered from their path... to make money! I truly doubt many, if any, of our religious leaders will be making it through the pearly gates and dining in the presence of God! As for your question on ranking, I would say that we rank where we do in almost every global comparison... very near the bottom of the pile. Sad!

Does it matter? God allowed the people to chose who they wanted from Samuel time. If an ethical, honest, hard working, visionary gay man or woman could turn this country around, put in programs to educate an unskilled populace and provide jobs for unemployed young AND older persons, there's no reason not to vote for that person

It does matter. God allows people to rape, murder and commit all sorts of vile acts, not because He is not God, but because He gave men free will and the right to execute that will. They will however be judged by Him for their acts. Most people fail to understand the correlation between good moral values and strong families and society, it takes more than just a strong economy and social programs. After all the Bahamas many of us remember fondly had more decent people, less crime and sexual perversion in it because of their moral values!
