Hey, in a country like PNG, who is starving short enough to go sell their body for money? Morally it is not right. Our ancestor were hard working and have never even thought about this practice. We are calling ourselves a christain country and yet you are talking about defiance of the Laws of God. Is this more than the constitution of PNG? Don't even think about it because it causes you to be immoral.

For you lazy ones who are conspiring about brothel go back to the village and live on the land.

Over to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! any more thoughts???????????????????

No Mr Gan, you call it a christian country, but not everyone else does. There are buddhists and Moslems and a very large number of non-believers. What about the people that do not call themselves christian, do they have to obey your gods laws too?

Hey Maus Gras,
Its all about morality. When God made you & I (whatever god is the same God!!) he gave us the option to CHOOSE. Thats what make us more intelligent than other creatures. With that power of choice, we are more intelligent and can control our destiny, & hence, our sexual desires and the moral means of satisfying it. Em tru ah? Maski long kainkain lotu, olgeta em wankain tasol !!!

KMR Gan.

I agree, the bible makes it quite clear that god wishes people to freely choose him. So why do you support taking away that choice by making prostitution (or pornography, or abortion, or homosexuality or any of the moral issues) illegal and denying people choice. ?

Oh BTW KMR Gan, I think the Hindus for one would strongly object to you calling Shiva the same as Yahweh.

You see, Mr Maus Gras,
In a tightly knit culture like the PNG societies, cultural and traditional rights & obligation overrides outside influence. Disobedience and neglact of these tradition can cost your life sometimes. This link & thought is still in the back of the minds of most PNGs. Maybe in the next two generations theses things will be forgotten and then the power of choice may take over but as it is now, the majority will feel that PNG is not there for legalising prostitution as yet. At least this is my thoughts, as being one of those who just came out of the 'stone'.

A good and I think a valid point.

Traditional values are important and still strong in PNG and should continue to be respected. So it is important that christian missionaries realise this. For example polygamy is still accepted in many villages that would otherwise call themselves "christian".

But I think you miss the point of the argument. Prostitution (and the other moral issues) were all originally "legal" in the sense that there was originally no law against them until europeans arrived and and made laws that made them illegal. The movement to "legalise" them is just undoing and returning things to the original state.

"Legalising" is removing this prohibition it is not making anything new.

It is illogical to argue in your first sentance that traditional values are still strong and then later say PNG is not ready to return to these values.

Totally agree with Possum.
Despite the personal distate that comes from the moral implications of legalising "the oldest trade in the world", it would do much to ensure that, at least in part, education regarding STDs and AIDS COULD stem the tide of this insidious disease becoming further entrenched in PNG.
PNG is now referred to as the Africa of the Pacific ( relating to the incidence of AIDS/ HIV per cpaita) and unless drastic measures are taken, we will be following on the heels of Angola, Zambia etc trying to slow the disease.
PNGeans are notoriously backward in advocating safe sex practices.

Sad to note that unless we defer to parlimenatrians passing appropriate bills/ legislation etc. we will be watching the decline of the country with it's health issues now coming a close second ( it WILL overtake it)to the economic ones....
