Archbishop views reflect irrelevancy of religions
By referring to same-sex unions as “dangerous” for T&T, Roman Catholic Archbishop Joseph Harris has proven once again the irrelevancy of Roman Catholicism (and, indeed, all religions, based on their similar backward attitude) in the 21st century.
Perhaps if the archbishop had some actual reasons for his view, other than the vague and nebulous “being against God’s will,” some discussion would actually be in order. I might even be satisfied if he could succinctly explain exactly how same-sex unions would be “dangerous” for the rest of the country. But he has no reasons that wouldn’t be laughed at in a court of law, and he can’t actually explain how the marriage of two consenting adults represents a danger to anyone else.
Indeed, there is no real discussion to be had involving the archbishop and his ignorant ilk, just the spouting of useless platitudes such as “we cannot do without God.” The issue is simple: you’re either against equality for an entire subgroup (an irony that is largely lost on a former slave colony), or you’re not. There is no in-between. The archbishop has thrown in his lot with hate and ignorance; I only hope that the Government doesn’t cave in to such backward absurdity.
