DIVAINA – Sunday 02nd , September
Writer: Mithra Sri Karunanayake.
The article written in the Sinhala newspaper Divaina features a one page spread on homosexuality and effeminate men and the problems they face as they get older. The writer goes on to speak about the number of them that are into commercial sex work to make a living. The article goes on to make some damning accusations against the Gay organisations operating in Sri Lanka and of the gay community in general.
The writer says that instead of being against homosexuality in Sri Lanka, there are several organisations and societies in Sri Lanka who are working to promote it. He goes on to say:
§ These organizations are strongly working in towns and are organizing parties in five star hotels and clubs to expand homosexuality in our country.
§ Foreign funds are flowing to these organizations to expand and improve homosexuality in Sri Lanka.
§ Behind the guise of World AIDS day some people have worked to improve homosexuality. They have given condoms to people and they are working to protect Homosexual rights. The organisations are Companions on a Journey, International lesbian and gays institute (ILGI) and international gays and lesbians Union. (IGLU) (where the writer got a hold of these phantom organisations one never knows!)
§ These NGO’s are working only to expand homosexuality around the world.
§ As a Buddhist country, we have to think whether these things are suitable for our country.
§ We can’t expect a solution from Christians who are protesting to get permission to getting married in the churches.
§ The Bible says having sex with a man like a women is a very bad sin; unfortunately, they are still unable to understand this.
§ We have to take action immediately like in Hebrew history where two cities Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because this is where homosexuals live.
