Tell Me Pastor column – ‘Gay’ problem Comment

Fiyu Pikni has left a comment on my post on gayjamaicawatch “Tell Me Pastor column – ‘Gay’ problem”: in which I hinted that the letters in the Tell Me Pastor column of the Star newspaper are fabricated.

“I have your suspicion as well. Letters to Aaron Dumas are too well constructed to have the right mix of sensational content.

I don’t like his advice either. He needs to make it clear that while psychologists can condition people to not act on their homosexual desires, there is no “remedy” for homosexuality.

Homosexuality as an abnormality. Paasta, no mek mi an yu av notn. There is nothing abnormal about me. Humans have a proclivity to describe any variance of what is usual as an abnormality. It’s funny how language serves to perpetuate prejudice. If homosexuality had originally been labelled a variance of human sexuality, then homophobic hatred would perhaps not be as vitriolic.

If this guy is even real, he doesn’t sound like someone who is grappling with his sexuality at all. I know of gay Christians who are trying to subdue their sexual inclinations. They tend to abstain from sex with other men…not sleep around in the hope of turning straight for god.

I swear this letter is a sham.”
