Smith was right
I echo the sentiments made in the House by South West St Ann Member of Parliament Ernest Smith, on February 10, that there should be a tightening of the anti-buggery laws in Jamaica. I have always argued that gays in Jamaica, whether female or male, are the driving force behind most of the domestic violence taking place in Jamaica.
We, in Jamaica, have been too tolerant of a behaviour that is, unequivocally, a sinful act which is not the norm in any decent God-fearing society.
The anti-buggery laws in Jamaica have been under assault by these different gay-rights groups, both locally and internationally, which are trying to force their lifestyle on the Jamaican society.
The schools and churches should step up and educate the young people that homosexuality is a loathsome and unacceptable lifestyle that is destructive to any family and society at large. Jamaica needs to go back to the basics, when the words gay or homosexual were looked upon with scorn and disdain.

MP was out of order
I am not gay but I find Ernest Smith’s statement to be out of order. Everybody has the God-given rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, in whatever way he or she see fit. Smith should just look at a piece of legislation that he just helped passed, which is in fact helping to kill marriage. It is the law that a woman can call the police on her husband, claiming that her husband has raped her. I guess Smith might want to revisit that law. Why should your sex life be dictated by the Government?
