I would like to respond to the criticism in the letter; Dr Tamale ignored moral issues on gays (Daily Monitor, November 4).
The criticism in the letter left me wondering what colour morals really wear. What moral shades, for instance, have our legislators reflected in the Anti-Homosexual Bill?
The Ten Commandments forbid every human being including our lawmakers from murdering, stealing, worshipping idols and bearing false witness against one’s neighbour.
Sadly, the seemingly moralistic Bill, if passed into law, will drip with schemes of murder, theft of privacy and gays’ peace including that of any gay-look-alike, funders and researchers, advocates as well as breed false accusations against one’s competitors.
What happened to loving others as we love our selves? Is that not the arm of the strong stretched forth to victimise the minority again? Haven’t the proponents idolised homosexuality by seeking to tear down any temple where it abides?
We seriously need to think again about this Bill. Self righteousness need not be mistaken for righteousness. Dr Tamale did a good moral and legal review of the Bill.
