here times;”>Pastor Allen Lee is a pastor who tries to strike a reasoned and reasonable balance in his public pronouncements.  We have disagreed with most of what he says but there was no reason to object vociferously to what he has said in the past..  He has strong views about the death penalty for example.  They are stuck in 19th century justice but that is his view.  We draw the line however with his defence of Myles Munroe and the anti-gay sentiment that is being paraded around this country.  In this letter to the editor which he sent to the Nassau Guardian, cialis sale he tries to make the neat distinction between hating the sinner and hating the sin.  It is a distinction without a difference.  The continued drum beat about this issue by the pastors like Allen Lee leads to the hate speech and hate crimes that are perpetrated in this country against gay people.  It leads to intolerance and homophobia.  Pastor Lee cannot get out of it by simply saying that he hates the sin not the sinner.  He has to love the sinner and accept that being gay is not a sin but what he is spreading around is a convenient but prejudicial way to read the Bible.  His interpretation of the Bible on this matter has been widely discredited and the science is absolutely wrong ( Peter Gomes The Good Book).  Both he and Pastor Myles Munroe need a Damascus moment on this.  The letter appears below.

This past Saturday 20 September 2014, the Editor of the Nassau Guardian, wrote an editorial responding to Dr. Myles Munroe’s response to the unsuccessful “Gay Pride” celebration in Grand Bahama. The Editor’s response prompted the following response from yours truly:

Dear Mr. Dean, General Manager & Editor,
The Nassau Guardian

Sept. 21, 2014

Your editorial, “Gay Hysteria in the Bahamas,” in the Sept. 20, 2014 edition of your prestigious paper is quite interesting, to say the least, and quite confusing and enlightening at the same time. It well illustrates the prevailing current practice of stating assumptions as both main premises and final conclusions, thereby actually making them both false and illogical, especially when dealing with the issue of your editorial – homosexuality.

For instance, your assumed conclusion was that Dr. Myles Munroe’s verbal response to the Gay Pride issue was based on or at least, evidence of his “fear” of the homosexual and LGBT community. Why did you come to that conclusion, based as you say on his words? He simply voiced his opinion, which, ironically, you seem to at least imply that we should all have the right to express in our “secular democracy”. He did just that, and you called him “the leader of the band of the terrified” because of it. You implicitly labeled him as one who both “hates” and “fears” homosexuals – and all because he stated his “democratic right” that you so boldly profess to uphold.

Does this mean that you, and those of the LGBT COMMUNITY as well as otherwise, who disagree with “the traditional straight” position do so because they fear heterosexuals and are therefore “heterophobic?” Your assumed premise leads to these false conclusions. If its anyone who is arousing “gay hysteria,’ it is surely you, sir.

You, inadvertently, I’m sure, also validated and illustrated Dr. Munroe’s proposition that the equation of homosexuality to race and the civil rights movement is absolutely a false and improper use, logically speaking, of categories (Categorical fallacy). They just don’t belong to the same issue. Thus, all of your comments in that regard are mere verbiage lacking coherence and adds nothing to the subject except to confirm what you are trying to deny.
How I long to see – and perhaps, even be engaged in – some really substantial, truth-focused, fact-based discussion on this vital, current and relevant issue.
You sir, are in a wonderful position to lead such a discussion. You have a “bully pulpit.” I implore you to use it in a trustworthy, intellectual and “righteous’ manner.

Again, by way of emphasis, your underlying premise that those of us who hold a different view on homosexuality hate and fear homosexuals is decidedly erroneous!

We do of course, hate the sexual activity their way of life is based upon (sodomy), but we do not -at least I don’t- hate them! I hate sodomy as much as I hate fornication, adultery, incest, etc. but like our God, I/we love those who commit these evils nonetheless, and seek to show them, as we do everyone else in this fallen world, the redemptive love of Christ. His Word assures us that sinners of ALL stripes can be cleansed through His redemptive sacrifice. Here are His precise words to this end:

“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you

I have much more to say on this issue, but due to the limitation of this venue, that will have to wait for another time.

Thank you for your indulgence. You are appreciated for your service to our Bahamian Community.
