OPINION: Rights of the LGBTIQ community on hold

 
430Views 7Comments Posted 04/10/2020

The recognition of the rights that LGBTIQ people have remains taboo in Panama, isolating us from the much more progressive countries. We are facing a human rights issue, which may not be to the liking of many, but which should be recognized since, before the law, we are all equal.

 Human rights law cannot be applied to some, while many others are ignored. Organizations such as the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (Inter-American Court of Human Rights) have already ruled in advisory opinions, warning of the need to recognize their rights. The Supreme Court of Justice has had this issue in its hands for a long time, but there has been little progress. Issues like this and sex education seem to escape the legal sphere, thanks to the pressure exerted by groups in society that are opposed to addressing these issues with the seriousness they deserve.

Justice and the authorities are obliged to do so, as the country is in arrears and for years. We hope that, with the winds of change blowing in the Court, Panama will begin to leave behind the validity of issues that are typical of underdevelopment.- LA PRENSA, Oct. 4

Leave it to "respectful" to try to church up homosexuality. No, its not natural or is it ok. General Butler is 100% correct ion this issue. Yes, do what you want in the privacy of your own home but you do not deserve "special" rights because of skin color or orientation. That is what this is all about, they want special rights like they have in the USA. DONT give it to them. They never quit and it is never enough. Also, I have the right to "NOT" be around queers. The straight were here first and it has worked great for 10,000 years.

"Fudgepackers"? Whether we like it or not, anal sex has been adopted by a growing proportion of heterosexuals. Just as oral sex is not confined to gays, neither is anal intercourse. If it is unatural and deviant for gays, how about when straights perform the same acts?

Fagots disserve no recognition of their mental illness and lack of moral standing. The good people of Panama should never allow this toxics and morally corrupt social experiment to gain not even one inch of credibility. The Muslim world eradicates this garbage from their culture and gay bashing is government sanctioned in many places around the world. Homophobia should be taught in schools as a mandatory curriculum in order to save the future generations from the rise of the pedophilic fudge packers.

General Butler

The LGBTQ agenda of sexual deviancy should be rejected. If sexual deviants cannot live by the laws of nature and God, they must limit their activities to the confines of their homes and not subject the young and impressionable to their behavior. To submit that the promotion of further societal degradation is somehow moving the country forward should be considered tantamount to treason. Sadly, almost the entire western world has gone down this path and it's one of several reasons why, without a revival of Christian values, western civilization is doomed.
