The Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) has called for legislation to ban lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) activities in Indonesia. 'We want a stern prohibition of LGBT activities and other deviant sexual activities and legislation that categorizes them as crimes,' MUI chairman Ma'ruf Amin said on Wednesday as quoted by the Antara news agency.
The council called for criminal punishment of any people who engaged in sexual activities related to, or encouraged, promoted or financed activities connected with the LGBT community.
Most people want to be free and have got their freedom. What does freedom itself mean?
Is it freedom to do all the things they want? If people agree with LGBT, you can imagine how terrible they are.
Freedom is not all about a free condition, nor all about the things they want.
What will happen if people freely kill each other? Do you agree with the freedom of killing one
It is not really a matter of freedom to kill and destroy society. The freedom of LGBT just gives them the right to love each other and since sex is a private matter and LGBT people do not harm anybody, they should be accepted.
So this kind of freedom is good since it does not destroy society. It does the opposite: It improves society by increasing happiness and stability.
Don't confuse state and religion. Unfortunately in Indonesia they are a married couple.
It's interesting that you claim yourself to be a Muslim but at the same time you promote secular freedom (including freedom to do things against Islamic values).
It is very sad to see this degeneration in Indonesia. Asia generally has always exhibited a fine acceptance of people from the LGBT community, even shown a great fondness for these people.
To see this absorption of a foreign, harsh, punitive culture toward these people in Indonesia is terribly sad.
Yes, it sounds good, but don't disturb them. Their lives must change to having a better way.
They are human. They must go to rehabilitation to forget being LGBT and give them good compensation for forgetting LGBT and have good lives.
I hope the Indonesian Ulema Association (MUI) can save their bad habits and teach them to have a good way of life.
This is the era when good is bad and bad is good. Give me proof that any abnormal sexual behavior gives us betterment, not harm.
There is none!
In all aspects of life this is a disease. That's why every single religion condemns this action. Freedom is not absolute.
