"MY MORAL COMPASS FOR THE WORLD: SURVIVING DECADENCE & GODLESSNESS."



Social Media, over the last few days, have given me much to ponder. Facebook and Twitter were abuzz with discussions on equality (human rights) for gays; proselytising at a Jamaican public school (Principal of Jamaica College, Ruel Reid, had a full-fledged revival on the campus of the school on a school day, during class time, without sanctions - a demonstration of the privilege religion, Christianity in particular, enjoys in this country); whether or not obeah should be kept illegal and whether we should expel pregnant girls from school(s) or have them quarantined at some school for pregnant women.

What all of these debates have exposed is our collective loss of a moral compass. Morality has been sacrificed at the altar of liberalism and progressiveness. I am here to redeem us all and offer us a solution towards surviving the decadence and godlessness. This list is exhaustive. What I do not mention here is not important enough to contemplate.

Firstly, regarding equality for gays, when will we accept as a MORAL nation that heterosexuals are more human than gays. The sub/non-humanity of gays must be heralded and accepted if we are to keep on the moral path that precludes the cataclysmic end on (heterosexual)humankind as we know it.

With regards to proselytising at school during school days, at class time, that is PERFECTLY ok. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of all knowledge and school is the perfect place for that, since families have failed to do so.

I am incredulous that people will even countenance obeah! Seriously? Never mind that as Christians, we invoke the wrath of god, through prayer, to avenge our cause against our enemies, Christianity is "European" and Obeah is African. Let superiority reign. As a matter of fact God allowed us to be enslaved by Europeans to save us of the evil that is obeah. Europe was our saviour. Keep obeah illegal and let us continue on our moral path of demonizing those ancient African beliefs.

Worse still than obeah is the idea that pregnant girls must stay in schools to corrupt our other innocent youth. Pregnancy is contagious and immoral. Those girls had sex out of wedlock and want us to celebrate and reward their immorality. NO! We must take a righteous stand. No sin goes unpunished. We must allow them to learn this lesson and punish their immoral act of fornication by taking away their right to an education and making them vulnerable to a lifetime of poverty. When they learn this lesson, the generations after them will fear god and act righteously. We cannot compromise and we cannot relent in our efforts to entrench morality as the foundation of a godly nation.

Apart from those issues that have had social media abuzz, I wish to further these other moral codes:

1. I will love to see our laws being amended to punish ALL forms of sexual sin: homosexuality, fornication, adultery, lusting, oral sex, sex in positions other than the missionary style. Sex is sacred and our sexual behaviours must demonstrate such sacredness.

2. There must be a total ban of mensurating women; persons with rashes and any other physical blemishes; priests/preachers with sight defects (Leviticus 21:20) and men who have had nocturnal emission(s) the night before, from all places of worship. The Bible is our guide for life and must be totally adhered to.

3. Our government must move with alacrity on legislation that will punish by death persons who dare to worship on any day besides Saturday; eat shell fish and ever other kind of unclean meat as listed in Leviticus.

4. The government, through the ministry of agriculture should enforce severe punishment against those who plant two different kinds of seeds in one hole (peas and corn). This is against the word of God and we must never tolerate that.

5. Even in our fashion, we have remained silent while the devil has led us on a slippery slope to hell. there shall be no mixing of fabrics. Any person caught wearing more than one fabric type at a time shall be imprisoned to TEN years,minimum with hard labour.

6. And, in order than we increase productivity and fix our economy, each person is allowed to purchase slaves as long they come from Haiti or Cuba. Leviticus 25:44 gives me the right to own slaves as long as they are obtained from neighbouring nations - See more at: http://dmarcuswilliams.blogspot.com/search?q=bible+as+a+source#sthash.VUePouxj.dpuf



Yvonne McCalla-Sobers said,
"So many Jamaicans are so in love with slavery that they welcome every infringement of their civil liberties, especially if it comes with a hymn and a Bible verse and the promise of bliss in the hereafter paid for by yielding the capacity to question what is irrational. What works for pastors also works for politicians, gang leaders, and any person or entity that wants to control through fear rather than engage through reason. Tyranny thrives on blind obedience, and so do crime, poverty, corruption, underdevelopment, and debt entrapment (unless the dictatorship is thorough and brutal, and thinkers are eliminated or otherwise silenced)."

What Sobers fails to understand is that "morality" requires blind obedience and that obedience is better than sacrifice. Crime, poverty, corruption, underdevelopment, and debt entrapment are small prices to pay to protect our moral constitution and survive the decadence and godlessness.

Think on these things!

Comfort is OVERRATED & Will Stunt Your GROWTH!!!

I have been thinking a lot lately about success and growth. I think many of us aspire to success and there are different versions of how that may manifest in our lives. For some, success shows up in the accumulation of wealth, degrees, notoriety or accomplishing simple life goals. Personally, I believe that each of us deposited into this realm of existence came with a specific assignment to benefit the earth and that success will be measured by how well I have lived out my specific assignment.

Whatever success looks like to you, you will have to agree that success does not happen by osmosis or luck. Success begins with a paradigm shift. I call it the cultivation of the growth mindset. One ways of thinking that we have to cultivate in this growth mindset towards success is that we must become comfortable with being uncomfortable. We underestimate and undervalue the profitability of challenge, opposition and discomfort in developing intellectu…

The Wicked Woman We Love to Hate!

Choose a Caribbean island - any one. There's a mother who's just beat her child with the first thing that her hands fall on. The Caribbean is inundated with narratives of mothers who dare not spare the rod and spoil the child - mothers who dig up ants nest and put their child to kneel in it, on a grater with their hands tied behind their back; mothers who use a hot iron to burn the hand of their thieving child; mothers who go into schools to box up the disrespectful child for answering back teacher and bringing shame to her name.
These are the things that Caribbean mothers do. They do this, not necessarily because they are wicked, but in the name of discipline.

We are a people who have learned violence. It's become part of our social DNA. Our parents learned that violence was how transgressors are taught to do better and behave better. They learned such violence from their parents, and their parents from theirs and their parents from the plantation. The whip is what we le…

SUPERHEROES & SOCIAL MEDIA

Social Media, and in particular twitter, has become a space for spewing caustic and vitriolic effluent at people with whom we disagree. I am sometimes amazed at how people feel so empowered and emboldened sitting behind a screen to descend into the bowels of utter nastiness to express dissent to something that someone else posted. It is worse now that we have 280 characters instead of 140. It means that the nastiness is times two. But social media can be and has been used as a source of good. I have been the beneficiary of deep friendships and formed a formidable network of people who have supported and pushed me along in my professional and personal life.Yet, we do not hear many stories about the power and reach of social media. In this post, I want to speak about a quiet Superhero that I encountered on social media.

I had been working in three vulnerable communities in the last couple of years on a urban disaster risk reduction project being implemented by Habitat for Humanity Jamai…
