Letter to the Gleaner Editor – MP’s views on gays backward

THE EDITOR, Sir:
I FIND IT really disgusting that a member of parliament in today’s world could make such comments about J-FLAG. He should be made to apologise to the Jamaican people for his bigoted views.

A member of parliament should speak for the Jamaican People – gay or straight, black and white – no matter what, he should not condemn anyone.

Because of outdated laws, we Jamaicans are known around the world for our violent behaviour and our intolerance. It is about time our leaders showed the world that Jamaicans are not just a proud people, but as well tolerant and peaceful

We are not just mind-blowing thugs with hate for others who are different from us. I believe there may come a time when Jamaica will be respected around the world, not just for its comedy and Bob Marley, but for its motto ‘Out of many, one people’.

I am, etc.,
