http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moral_nihilism

Moral nihilism (also known as ethical nihilism) is the meta-ethical view that nothing is intrinsically moral or immoral. For example, a moral nihilist would say that killing someone, for whatever reason, is neither inherently right nor inherently wrong. Moral nihilists consider morality to be constructed, a complex set of rules and recommendations that may give a psychological, social, or economical advantage to its adherents, but is otherwise without universal or even relative truth in any sense.[1

The  call  is often made  that  Jamaica  is  not  a  theocracy  and  it is not.  As  the  definition above  shows  a  a  theocracy  is  a  system  of  government  in which priests  rule  in the name  of  God. 

Those  who  loudly  shout  that  Jamaica  is  not a theocracy often go  on  to say  that  Jamaica  is  a secular  state .  These  persons  would  like  to have  Jamaica  make  its  laws  as  though   it  were an secular  state.

Secularism is  making public  policy without  reference  to  God  and  this  equates  to atheism  ; again ,however, Jamaica  is  not  an atheist /  secular  state.  

Jamaica  is  a plural democracy  the laws  of  which are formed  within  the Judeo-Christian world view.

In atheism / secularism there  is no concept of  normal because  in this  world view  the universe is  not designed  by God  and  has no  purpose.  Any concept  of  design , purpose , normal  or  abnormal  are illusions  imposed  by  humans  with the power  to  do  so.

This contrast  with the christian world view  which  holds  that  the universe is  designed, has purpose  and  that  normal  and  abnormal  are built  into  the very fabric  of  the universe

LGBTTTIQ  public  policy  is  formed  within the atheistic /  secular  world  view so homosexuality  , being transgender, scat, farming, felching  etc   can be defined as normal and  rejection of   these  lifestyles  defined  as  abnormal  or  even criminal.   

 

The moral nihilism  of  the  secular / atheist  approach   to public  policy  is  unfolding  in the story  below .

Leelah Alcorn

A gay rights activist has said that the parents of Leelah Alcorn should be prosecuted, after the transgender teenager took her own life.

The 17-year-old, from Ohio, walked in front of an oncoming truck and was crushed to death on Sunday morning.

She left behind a suicide note on her Tumblr blog, in which she said she had been forced by her devout Christian parents to undergo conversion therapy, which seeks to change sexual orientation through counselling. The practice has been banned in two states on grounds it is medically unfounded and puts children in danger.

Writing on Twitter, Dan Savage posted: “If Tyler Clementi’s roommate could be prosecuted – and he was – then the parents of Leelah Alcorn can and should be.”

Clementi, 18, jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge in 2010, after his Rutgers University roommate and another student used a webcam to film him embracing another man.

In her final letter, Alcorn, born with the name Joshua, said her parents had reacted “extremely negatively” when she told them she was transgender, causing her to develop a “f**k you” attitude towards them.

He added: “Leelah Alcorn’s parents… should be ashamed – but 1st they need to be shamed. Charges should be brought.”

He also said the therapists who saw Alcorn should be charged and suggested that her siblings should not remain with their parents.

In her note Alcorn said she had felt “like a girl trapped in a boy’s body” since the age of four and had “cried of happiness” when she first came across the term transgender.

But she said she began to feel hopeless after realising her parents “would never come around” and allow her to transition.

“The only way I will rest in peace is if one day transgender people aren’t treated the way I was, they’re treated like humans, with valid feelings and human rights,” she wrote.

“Gender needs to be taught about in schools, the earlier the better. My death needs to mean something. My death needs to be counted in the number of transgender people who commit suicide this year. I want someone to look at that number and say ‘that’s fucked up’ and fix it. Fix society.”

Alcorn’s mother Carla told CNN on Wednesday: “We don’t support that, religiously. But we told him that we loved him unconditionally. We loved him no matter what. I loved my son. People need to know that I loved him. He was a good kid, a good boy.”

Groups supporting transgender people have called for a national “Leelah’s Law” to end conversion therapy, calling it “psychological torture.” Nearly 80,000 people have signed a petition on Change.org supporting the proposal.

The American Psychological Association has dismissed the idea that sexual orientation is a mental disorder and said mental health professionals should avoid telling clients they can change their sexual orientation through therapy or other treatments.

Supporters of the practice say it is an effective way to counsel troubled youths.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender teenagers are about twice as likely to have attempted suicide as their heterosexual peers, said a paper on the website for the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“Her story is not unique,” said Allison Woolbert, executive director of the Transgender Human Rights Institute.

“People see a 17-year-old who has struggled for several years, desperately trying to be herself. They are seeing a real-life instance of what this is like for a teen,” Woolbert said.

Anyone who has been affected by the news in the UK can call the Samaritans on 08457 909090 or email jo@samaritans.org for confidential help and support.
