Jamaica Gleaner Continues Its Hate Campaign

Timothy Kincaid

April 12th, 2008

The Jamaica Gleaner published another letter to the editor today. And, not surprisingly, it offered the obligatory “don’t beat them” statements while seeking to justify just such action.

This thing about gays and the rights they have and the rights they want is downright ungodly. If they want to be that way, it is their business; why make it everyone else’s? Has anyone thought about the rights of the people who do not want their children exposed to that kind of nastiness?

I wonder if the cruise ships that stop in Jamaica know that they are placing their gay passengers – or those who might be mistaken for gay – in danger.

Darn… i guess the only difference between jamaica and my experience is that gays here are not beaten much i think. but the reason.. is the same.
‘GAYS and THEIR equal rights.. AS IF.’
Gays=nastiness=perversion=NOT A HUMAN RIGHT=Wrong.

This reminds me so much of Joey the Ratz statement of some years ago that if gay people are going to go around demanding an end to prejudice and rights (and I am paraphrasing here) that no sane person could possibly they they were entitled to, well the queers just should not be surprised if someone reacts violently.

I’m just sayin’…., that’sall
