Methodist Minister Blasts ‘Fashion’ Of Homosexuality In Saint Lucia

Outspoken Superintendent Minister of the Methodist Church here, Seth Ampadu, has hit out at homosexuality in the society, describing it as evil.

He spoke during an Ash Wednesday service at the Castries Methodist Church on the theme Christian Conduct in a Society.

“Today homosexuality has become fashion in our society today,” the Methodist Minister asserted.

He recalled driving a few days ago and seeing two men “putting their hands on each other – the back.”

“Like husband and wife,” Ampadu asserted.

He lamented that people see nothing wrong with that.

“Some of them are Christians,” the Methodist Minister observed.

But he said some persons engaging in such acts are not ashamed for people to see that they are homosexuals.

“They don’t care,” he exclaimed.

“Let me say that those acts destroy families; they destroy communities,” Ampadu declared.

“Even though as Christians we love such people, we welcome them, but we do not condone that kind of practice – it is evil,” the Clergyman stated.

He explained that the task of Christians is to preserve, reconcile and add taste, giving meaning where there is no meaning and hope where there is none in the society.

“We are to promote life and growth. We are to bring life to our communities and our nation at large. God has chosen us to do that job – to liberate people from darkness, death, sin and give them eternal life through the power of the holy spirit,” Ampadu stated.

He explained that God wants Christians to be the catalysts to bring ‘wholeness’ to their communities.

  1. Ampadu,
    You are on the losing side of this argument. Your very words contradict your stance as a so call christian. How does someone sexual preference destroy families, destroy communities as you state? Do they live under your roof? do they invite you into their rooms when they go to bed? Are they not two people that want to be with each other? Please Mr Clergyman, please elaborate. So why is it your business to dictate your apostolic bigotry which I might add is twisted and uninformed by some book written by men in a desert almost 2000 yrs ago. The very bible you read suctioned the slavery of your ancestors. Do you blame God for the female Kobudai fish that changes its sex to male at a particular age? and this is not just hearsay it is scientifically proven…..In your bigoted brain did God not create the Kobudai fish too? Discrimination of any grounds must be made a criminal offence and that include oppression of LGBTQ+. This must stop. Our society will be more progressive if we allow every citizen their rights under the law to be themselves and give their services to society whole heartedly without fear of oppression. Our ancestors fought for their freedom (and rightly so) from the slavery your bible condoned. Shouldn’t LGBTQ+ fight for their freedoms you wrongly want to take from them? About 100 yrs ago, women were not allowed to vote. For millennia women were oppressed, not only because the were the so called weaker sex and were seen as second class citizens, but that oppression was sanctioned by that very bible you read. Let me remind you Ampadu. Adam blamed Eve for giving him the fruit when God questioned him…thus in pain women bare children was the punishment God gave Eve and by extension every women till today…I can go on and on and on…but you get the point I hope. Women had to fight for that right to vote until they got that right.. and rightly so. Are we so backward to not move forward and find a better way of doing things than to do the same old things and expect a different result? I repeat Mon Signor Ampadu, YOU ARE ON THE LOSING SIDE OF THIS ARGUMENT….SLAVERY WAS EVENTUALLY ABOLISHED, WOMEN GAINED UNIVERSAL SUFFERAGE, AND THE KOBUDAI FISH WILL STILL CHANGE ITS SEX WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT. THAT IT CANNOT AVOID. HOMOPHOBIA AND ITS INSIDIOUS TENTACLES WILL BE MADE ILLIGAL. LIKE IT OR NOT…YOU CAN NOT CHANGE THE HAND OF HISTORY. OUR PEOPLE, EVERY SINGLE SAINT LUCIAN MUST BE FREE TO BE THEMSELVES TO REACH THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF THEIR FULL POTENTIAL. OPPRESSION OF ANY FORM INHIBITS THAT POTENTIAL.

    • That’s a hell of a long defense for your sick, immoral, sinful, revolting and abominable act and life style. No matter how long your statement is it will not change the facts the Bible has outlined. You gays are so intolerant of other people’s views.

    • I still do not understand this discrimination that homosexuals and lesbians are complaining about. I am yet to see a lesbian or homosexual baby. The fact is this lifestyle do affect families and society. Man was made for woman and vice versa and not the other way around. This sexual preference is propagated to destroy the extension of man particularly the black race and our people are so foolish they’re falling for the trap. Can two men or two women produce? And if they can’t, of course that’s the end of families and societies eventually. So stop being myopic. It is also a proven fact that persons who participate in those lifestyles live shortened lives. If they live to 40, they live long. So isn’t that in itself affecting families and the societies particularly in regards to productivity in the workplace and the GDP of a country. So wake up man or woman and stop falling for this crap. Your disregard for the bible which you claim was a book written in the bush in the dark ages is your opinion and no one can force you to think otherwise but please don’t force us to accept your beliefs on homosexuality either. No one can force you to choose your sexual preference but yet we are expected as a country to cater to your health needs of all the diseases that this life style brings with it. Y’all cannot have your cake and eat it too. As I said earlier I am yet to see a lesbian or homosexual baby but I can determine at birth whether the baby is a girl or a boy. So comparing your life style to women’s right to vote is completely different. Women not being allowed to vote is discrimination, a person’s sexual preference is not and had never been determined by the UN or any other organization as such. Do note that the fish was created this way. It’s genetics were built this way to convert itself at some point but at no time it is both genders at once. When a child is born, it is either male or female. One can call whatever gender they want to afterwards but it still remains with female and or male anatomy not both. Wake up and look at the bigger picture: the plan to destroy your race by propagating this type of lifestyle, another way to destroy the black man and or woman. So instead of attacking the Priest whom I know not or have any connections with, do your homework and stop falling for this nonsense. Have a blessed day. Still luv you and wish you the best.

  2. All over the globe and here at home in Nassau the Bahamas same! You have a vast majority of men that ate openly Gay and a vast majority that are down low or Bisexual. A vast majority of haitian and jamicams are very gay, for they seeK refuge or exile in the Bahamas from harm. We in the Bahamas are tolerant but we have hate crimes as well. Some parts of Nassau you can still be KILLED showing affection towards a male if your male*.. All I can say is protect yourself from STD’S always USE PROTECTION*!.

    RASTA! DOWNLOW! CONFUSED! BISEXUAL! LOW SELF ESTEEM! THUGS! ALL OF THEM do it!

    Bob Marley sing ‘ you dont know who to trust’ you can have a best friend and don’t know your male best friend LOVES YOU! THE MAN DEM TODAY DONT WANT WOMAN they find man to man attractive.. REAL TALK!… And the woman dont want man dem want woman themselves.

  3. I agree with the Methodist minister Seth ampadu. speak against homosexuality in St Lucia our belief is based on the word of God. It must not be changed to suit our liking. Our liking only heading us to destruction. I condemn your comment C_wiz you bring this point about the kobudai fish just to justify your wrong doing. Haven’t you read Genesis ch1 V27 and Matthew Ch19 V5 . you will not believe them because your thoughts are evil. Do not try to trap God in any way. He is the creator and he makes things work any way he wants. When he tells you this, this must be this when he tells you that, that must be that no questions asked. Consider a sperm leaving a penis is it male or female. At what point it becomes male or female. Therefore God is all powerful and can design the kobudai fish to change at any given time he wishes. Do you know what is metamorphosis. May God have mercy on you C_wiz.

  5. I see it too and they are mad at people who don’t condone it, but the minister is very right, this act destroys lives and families even if this site doesn’t want to hear it. This act was and is directly condemned by God and nothing can change the fact that it is wrong no matter what’s they say or do. When God made man he instructed them to “be fruitful and multiply.

    Leviticus 18:22
    22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

    I want to hear them explain this.

  6. I agree with Seth Ampadu . Speak against homosexual in St Lucia. Our belief is based on the worrd of God . It must not be change to suit our liking. Our liking only leading US to destruction. I condemn your comment C-wiz. You bring this point about the kobudai fish just to satisfy your wrong doing. Haven’t you read Genesis ch1 v27 and Matthew ch19 v5 no you wont believe in it because your thoughts are evil. Do not try to trap God in any way. He’s the creator and he makes things work any way he wants, when he saiys this is this,this must be this and when he says that is that, that must be that Consider a sperm leaving a penis, is it male or female. At what point it becomes male or female. May God have mercy on you C-wiz.

  7. Yes Father, Amen.

    Its just like the Catholic Podophile Priest, they have been destroying families in the name of God for centuries.
