Homosexuality is a mental disorder and psychological perversion which psychologists call a sadomasochistic perversion – an act of changing good and right into bad and wrong.
The result of this act is very dangerous:
1. The perversion of justice
2. The perversion of the truth
3. Sexual diseases like gonorrhoea and syphilis, which kill the patient slowly and painfully.
The word ‘HOMO’ is a Greek word meaning same. The nature has fielded the life on earth in pair, and, all types of beings are seen in pairs – male and female. Animals, birds, plants, fishes etc. live in pairs. We cannot see a cock mating with a cock and a hen mating with a hen. We can come to the reality that homosexuality is unnatural. It is not only unnatural, but also anti-natural. Nature runs on certain definite formula set by the Creator. Even for those who do not believe in the Creator can realise it through the settings and practical life of all the beings including human.
For those who believe in God, it is a severe crime as well as sin. For atheists, human body is only flesh and no soul or hereafter life. They believe that once death comes to a person the body is destroyed and history about him exists.
DESTRUCTION OF NATIONS
All sections of people – religious and racial – believe in morality and feel that the world exists due to moral atmosphere. The Holy Qur’ān hints at the cause of destruction of certain communities. Children of Israel were degraded due to their arrogance and injustice; the people of Prophet Lut were destroyed due to immorality of homosexual nature. The Bible refers to the incident which led to the destruction of the people of Sodom. In the Bible, chapter 19 – the Book of Genesis, it is said: ‘sodomy originated from the city named Sodom’. According to Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary, “Sodom and Gomorrah – a place that is full of people behaving in a sexually immoral way: The village had a reputation as a latter-day Sodom Gomorrah. These two cities were destroyed by God to punish the people for their sexually immoral behaviour”.
Explaining the Indian stand on moral life, Dr. S Radhakrishnan writes: “The ideal of ethics is self-realization. Moral conduct, if by the self we mean not the empirical self, with all its weakness and vulgarity, selfishness and smallness, but the deeper nature of man free from all fetters of selfish individuality. The lusts and passions of animal self, the desire and ambitions of egoism, restrict the vital energies to plane of lower self and contract the life of the soul, and they are to be held in check. For the growth of the self, or realization of the highest, the obstacles and influences must be subdued. Te moral life is one of understanding and reason, and not of mere sense and instinct.” (The Indian Philosophy, V.1, ED.2 ,OUP,2008, P.180).
PEOPLE OF LUT
The people of Lut, living in the village of Sodom, had immoral instinct to homosexuality. God warned them several times through Messengers, only to be rejected by the addicts of psychological emotion. At last God sent two Angels in the form of beautiful male children. They were the guests of Prophet Lut, and knowing this the insane people rushed towards Prophet’s House and demanded the children to be handed over to them. They were warned of the consequences if they follow the wrong path. However, they were not ready to discontinue their moral practice. Subsequently, the Angels took their original form and destroyed all people including Lut’s wife who, “lagged” behind, except those who escaped with the Prophet.
The Holy Qur’ān gives a picture of the incident: “We also (sent) Lut: He said to his people; “Do you commit lewdness such as no people in Creation (ever) committed before you? For you practise your lusts on men in preference to women; you are indeed a people transgressing beyond bonds.” And We rained down on them a shower (of brimstone). Then see what was the end of those who indulged in sin and crime.” (Holy Quran 7:80, 81,84).
“When Our Messengers came to Lut, he was grieved on their account and felt himself powerless (to protect) them. He said; “This is a distressful day”. “When Our decree issued, We turned (the cities) upside down, and raised down on them brimstones hard as baked clay, spread, layer on layer...”
“Marked from thy Lord; nor are they ever far from those who do wrong.” (Holy Quran 11:77, 82,83).
The history of Angels who disguised as young men to test the people is mentioned in Surah Al-Hijr. The Holy Qur’ān mentions this incident in many chapters which show the seriousness of the Divine law. In Surah Al-Ambiya it is said: “Truly they were a people given to evil, a rebellious people.” References are also found in Surahs Al-Anam, Al-A’raf, Al-Hud, Al-Hijr, Al-Ambiya, Ash-Shuaraa, Al-Naml, Al-Ankabut, As-Saffat and Al-Zariyat.
In Surah Al-Ankabut Allah reminds mankind with clear proof: “And We have left thereof an evident sign, for any people who (came to) understand”. Today the place is called Bahr Lut around the Dead Sea.
Scholars opine that homosexuality is unpardonable crime as we know that it is a challenge to God’s natural creation.
In 1989, Denmark became the first country to lift the legal ban on homosexual marriages. Gay and lesbian couples were legally considered for the social legitimacy including inheritance, taxation and joint property ownership. Norway (1993) and Sweden followed suit. In 2000, the province of British Colombia changed a variety of provincial statutes granting same-sex couples the same rights and obligations as common law couples.
A study shows that gay persons are mentally retarded and they hate children. Those who need children either adopt or get them through heterosexual unions. It is proved that sexual permissive practices spread deadly diseases like HIV and AIDS. It is discovered that after 1960 the rates of sexually transmitted diseases rose sharply. In 1993, Simon Le Vay who studied the mental status of homosexuals and heterosexuals found an important difference in the size of the hypothalamus, a part of the brain that regulates hormones. Genetics also influence such an attitude. A study on 33 pairs of homosexuals revealed that they had a distinctive genetic pattern involving X Chromosomes. There are clinics rendering service to homosexuals who are mentally disorder. In India, there are seven lakh homosexuals affected with venereal diseases.
Stop this menace or face consequences, may be destruction of the world.
