Rukun Negara 1st Principle is Against LGBT

Rukun Negara puts the principle of belief in God at the highest place. So that, all the people from any religions should follow all the order and rules from their God.

It is not just Islam that prohibits LGBT, actually most of the other religions also of the view that, SOGI/LGBT are an immoral act and they are strongly prohibit and condemn it.

Among the religions are as follows:

(a)          Judaism

Judaism prohibits the act of sodomy based on the Torah (first five books of the Hebrew Bible). It is the primary source for Jewish views on homosexuality. It states as follows:

“[A man] shall not lie with another man as [he would] with a woman, it is a toeba (“abomination”).”

(Leviticus 18:22).

(b)          Christianity

Christianity teaches that sexual union between husband and wife is primarily for procreation, though sexual pleasure is important as well. The bible prohibits homosexual sex and sodomy, though it is mostly silent on heterosexual sodomy.

The Old Testament, states as follows:

“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion.”.

(Leviticus 18:22-23)

“If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.” .

(Leviticus 20:13)

Based on these Bible verses, it shows that the sexual activity known as sodomy is not approved by their God.

(c)          Buddhism

Buddhists generally believe that all sexual desire is something to overcome, like other forms of attachment. Buddhists do not believe that humans have an obligation to procreate, and celibacy is seen by many Buddhist traditions as a step on the path to enlightenment. Buddhist teaching doesn’t normally distinguish between what type of sex is appropriate and what is not, though some believe Buddhism prohibits oral and anal sex.

The Buddha did not teach about homosexuality or homosexual behavior. But, Dalai Lama, the Tibetan Buddhism leader, has made statements against homosexual relationships and has said that lesbian and gay sex is “sexual misconduct”[1].

(d)          Sikhism

Sikhism has no written view on the matter, but in 2005, a Sikh religious authority described homosexuality as “against the Sikh religion and the Sikh code of conduct and totally against the laws of nature,” and called on Sikhs to support laws against gay marriage[2].

Based on the above explanation, it clearly shows that SOGI/LGBT are not in line with the position of Islam as the religion of the Federation under the Federal Constitution. Islam strongly prohibited and condemned SOGI/LGBT. We need to state unequivocally and unambiguously that SOGI/LGBT is a deviant behavior as clearly and explicitly stated by the Quran and Hadith. Besides, the other religions also have the same stand with Islamic religion in prohibiting SOGILGBT.
