Trinidad and Tobago court says laws barring gay sex are unconstitutional

Gay sex between consenting men in Trinidad and Tobago could soon be decriminalised following a court judgment that campaigners said might spark similar decisions elsewhere in the Caribbean.

In his ruling on Thursday, judge Devindra Rampersad said sections of the Sexual Offences Act, which prohibit “buggery” and “serious indecency” between two men, criminalised consensual same-sex activity between adults, and were unconstitutional.

“The judge came down on the right side of history in this case by striking down the buggery law and ruling it as unconstitutional,” said Kenita Placide, Caribbean advisor for rights group OutRight Action International, in a statement.

The decision followed a similar ruling in Belize in 2016.

“With positive rulings in Belize and Trinidad and Tobago, the movement will carry the momentum to other parts of the region,” she said.

Judges for whom Romans 1:18-32 may have already been underway.

Homosexual acts SHOULD be illegal. If they had remained so the world would be a better place.

Interesting. Could be trouble ahead.

Trinidad and Tobago have a large Muslim population. Some youth, in fact, have run off to join ISIS (per a Nat Geo documentary I saw a few months ago).

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Yes Rurudyne, our culture would be far better if sodomy was still illegal!

Do we see a pattern here? Not only in America, but in Europe and elsewhere: evil is mostly igonrred.

GOD’s JUDGMENT IS COMING : and it’s well underway- not only for America, but worldwide too. Look to ancient Israel to see the eventual fruit of disobedience to God. Look at the daily news: did you see such things 10 years ago? I expect to see us suffer terrible military defeats, as did ancient Israel.

Tie the judge to his bench and sodomize him to near death - then see if he has a change of opinion.

[“The judge came down on the right side of history”]

You know, this would be hilarious were it not so serious.

They have no idea what the right side of history is going to be.

And they are definitely going to be on the wrong side of real history.

But liberals love lies. They’re smarter than the rest of us, you know.

Romans 1:22

Professing themselves to be wise, they became as fools.

We’re in the Last Days (as you know). You should see all the Democrats who hate Christianity and tell others that God does not exist.

Of course, a lot of them hate Israel too.

This insanity and spirit of antichrist is really manifesting itself worldwide. The madness is mind-boggling.

Boy, is a surprise coming when the Tribulation and the Great Tribulation start.

And they won’t listen, either. At least not the die-hard liberals; they won’t.

“Jehu will put to death any who escape the sword of Hazael, and Elisha will put to death any who escape the sword of Jehu. Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel—all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and whose mouths have not kissed him.” 1 Kings 19:17-18

I have observed that people who think positively about the things you mention have a very hard time understanding that things which they consider to be progress may in fact represent God’s judgment already falling on a people.

Consider: who is in danger of finding themselves in a Romans 1:18-32 process? It is not some heathen, not a Hindu or a Buddhist nor any individual who falls away from things which are not god and which never profited them anyway. Those people may have many issues but being subjected to a Romans 1:18-32 process is not a concern for them.

Those who turn their backs on the knowledge of God though, those who have been awash in the knowledge of the Gospel in particular, who have no excuse, they are the ones in danger.

Compromise with evil is still evil. A person can compromise their way onto the broad road to destruction with nary a hint of comprehension for what they’ve done. We are already in a time when the pressure is ramping up to kiss their Baals and to bow to their “progress”, as those running the culture already imagine that real righteousness is unreasonable, even hateful and they want nothing of it and are already willing to come down on those who cling to sound morals.

So spreading AIDS, GRID, TB, hepatitis, etc somehow does not constitute posing a danger to oneself and others?

This mental disorder should never be considered a civil right!

Step 1 in Satan’s plan. Next: bake me a cake. Final stop: churches that don’t perform gay marriages are unconstitutional.

Right side of history?

Since when?

Time is on our side.

Judicial activism from closeted men in black dresses, yet again.
