SAME SEX MARRIAGE
The decision of President Barak Obama to allow same sex marriage in America is shocking a far cry from the Mosaic law whereby homosexuality was punishable by death. No doubt Obama has deep sympathy for lesbians, homosexuals etc but it would be morally wrong to go against the natural law of God to satisfy the desires of a certain group of people.
There are other ways of tackling the problem. If those whose sexual orientation is different from the norm are segregated and live a monastic life (men and women together) supervised by a religious organisation and given counselling, they will come to realize their faults and take appropriate action to overcome it.
It is important that all activities (including sports) should be mixed so that men will appreciate the talents of women and vice-versa. Over time they will pair off and marry in the normal manner. The Hare Krishna movement in America converted the Hippies and Yippies of the sixties to Hinduism and they now live decent lives in communes all over America. The Hippie movement has now virtually disappeared from the American scene. If Obama does the same for those with different sexual orientation, homosexuality will no longer be a problem in America. (Other countries will soon follow suit.)
America is indeed the flagship of the world.
