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.
