I am troubled by the statement of the new Presbyterian Moderator, Rev Joy Abdul Mohan, that research has been done by the Presbyterian Church of Trinidad and Tobago (PCTT) to determine what stance to take on the gay rights issue.

Mohan made that comment not long after her election to the head of the PCTT earlier this year, saying a report had been presented to the Synod, and would be ­presented to every pastoral region for ­discussion before a decision could be made.

I am troubled by that statement because God has already made his stance clear in his word—the Bible.
