My stance to same-sex marriage is an emphatic NO!!!

My stance to the statements by a number of our MLA;s in the LA to deport Dr Leo Raznovich, who is a legal resident here, is an emphatic NO!!!

I find the rhetoric in the LA yesterday, especially from Anthony Eden and Ezzard Miller, appalling.

I find it incredulous that Eden said Raznovich should not be allowed to criticise the traditions of this country on the international stage.

What is he going to propose to stop him – have him shot?

Dr. Raznovich and I have ‘spoken’ by email (we have never met in person) about same sex marriage and my very, very, strong views why I am against it. He never once cursed me out, called me names, and wanted me put before a firing squad!

I fervently wished he had respected our Country’s views on same sex marriage and accepted the decision by the Appeals Court that we must agree to same sex relationships, and give them the same protections as married couples but they cannot marry here.

I said at the time the decision they made was not going to please either parties 100%.

I was right.

I disagree 100 per cent on the Doctor’s ‘crusade’ and his stance to appeal the decision and not respect the views that might seem ‘outdated’ today but, THANK GOD, we do have here.

Dr. Raznovich is, like me, a ‘guest’ in a beautiful peaceful island. One of the few left. A guest should respect his hosts.

Words of ‘war’ from the Doctor has, to some extent, encouraged (or enraged) the words of ‘war’ that have come back from out of the LA.

I deplore both and I will fight them all with the strongest word in our vocabulary – a FOUR letter word:

LOVE.

Sadly, neither side has shown any.

Where is love?

Do I have to turn to the musical “Oliver” to hear it? Actually you won’t find it even there.

Where is love?

.

Does it fall from skies above?

Is it underneath the willow tree

That I’ve been dreaming of?

Where is she?

.

Who I close my eyes to see?

Will I ever know the sweet “hello”

That’s meant for only me?

Who can say where she may hide it ?

Must I travel far and wide?

‘Til I am beside the someone who

I can mean something to …

Where…?

Where is love?

.

Who can say where…she may hide?

Must I travel…far and wide?

‘Til I am beside…the someone who

I can mean…something to…

Where?

Where is love?
