Most Nunavummiut oppose gay marriage


Why is it that whenever anyone has an opinion or a point of view that is different from a homosexual’s point of view, that person is automatically declared homophobic? Who is trying to impose their beliefs on someone else’s beliefs here? Is it the politically incorrect Christian fundamentalist or the homosexuals?

I am about to get myself labelled a homophobe, just for expressing my point of view, so all you biblephobes out there, here is my point of view on the issue of gay marriages: No, I do not agree with “gay marriages.” So there, I’m sure I am now a homophobe in the eyes of the gay community.

The simple fact of the matter is this: Marriages are between a man and a woman. That is what we believe because we choose to believe what the Bible teaches.

You also can choose to believe otherwise, that is your basic human right. Although I do not go to church every Sunday and may have the odd “cold beverage,” once in a while, I believe that marriages should only be between a man and woman as the Bible teaches.

Believe me, I am not a poster boy for a Christian man. We “the homophobes” will oppose gay marriages, since we choose to believe that God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. That is the opinion of the vast majority of Inuit, whether you like it or not, and that is the point of view of most Nunavummiut.

I guess Nunavut will be known as a homophobic territory. I suggest that if the MLAs would like to keep their jobs they should oppose gay marriages because you all know you will be in the hot seat in the very near future when elections come around, if you choose to support gay marriages.

We the voters of Nunavut, particularly Baffin South, will make sure this issue will be front and centre and not on the back burner. Some MLAs have stayed very quiet on this issue and some have not. Enoki – You da man!

Some have been staying quiet probably to avoid the dreaded homophobic label, but this is a very big issue for Inuit and when the elections roll around, their views and where they stand on this issue will be heard.

Or maybe they can surprise us and show some backbone right now and tell us where they stand. Stop trying to walk the fine line. Your campaign for re-election started a long time ago.

From a homophobic, Bible-thumping, Christian fundamentalist Inuk from the Baffin South riding.
