9.50 Gay rights

< Previous Issue Higher Issue All Issues Next Issue >

What if you were put in charge of the World tomorrow? How would you run the planet?

If you have arrived onto this page from an external link or search engine, the material below will make no sense whatsoever unless you know why www.12-12-12.org was written. A very brief summary can be read by clicking here

This globally popular educational and research website lists every national and international problem in the world in a rather unusual and entertaining way, so remember to bookmark www.12-12-12.org in your favourites folder! For the record: Andronicos the author does not profess to greatness in any shape or form. Lets continue.................

Andronicos "The Great" as Director of the Human Race and Manager Planet Earth commands and Andronicos "The Cynic" responds as follows.........


Here are my directives on homosexual, lesbian and bisexual matters, practices which I neither condone nor reject.

Tribal Sovereign states where gay people are tolerated should pass laws to recognise the civil rights of these minorities, such as will making, taxation and formal ceremonial recognition of common law cohabitation.

I will not normally interfere with what goes on within schools, clubs and religious organisations, as it's a local tribal issue. It is up to each group whether to allow gays or not.

But "gay" people should also do their bit to get acceptance within mainstream society: Firstly, don't marry someone to save face or for the family honour. It could lead to a very unhappy marriage. Secondly, admit it and don't hide the fact from others or yourself. If you are famous come out of the closet on December 12th 2003 as the media will be too busy covering more important stories, including the revelations that even more famous people than you are gay.

The violent persecution shown to these groups by some tribal authorities is unacceptable. Until such time as public opinion is more tolerant in these tribal religions, I direct gay people be allowed to be gay in private.

Obviously, it is extremely unlikely that the people of the Sovereign tribes of Saudi Arabia will ever tolerate two gay men sunbathing naked on a mixed nudist beach while sipping brandy. On the other hand, it is extremely unlikely that the women of the Sovereign tribes of Italy will ever tolerate the idea of marrying four Italian male concubines on the same day, who by law have to cover themselves from head to toe in black veils (burka) while being seen in public with their lady. My vision of the "Many Tribes One People One Planet" philosophy is that in the near future it will be easy to move to places that condone one's behaviour, beliefs, customs or tastes.

After all, the wonderful thing about the tribe known as the human race is its varied shapes, sizes, characteristics, personalities and view points.

If you are a very religious person, you could easily bombard scriptures at gay people saying they are in error. Instead, let God judge and look at resolving your own perceived faults.

It will take an average person 12 hours to read and understand the contents of this website and listen to 'The Speech'. Is one hour a day for 12 days too long? Why don't you email the www.12-12-12.org link to 12 of your friends and discuss their opinions in 12 days time? Maybe the 7th person in your email chain can break the secret code and the 12th person, may hold the key to World Peace. Are you or someone in your family the 7th or 12th person?
