Homophobic Jamaican Prime Minister

Here is an example of the damage caused by ignorance, religion and politicians who profit from maintaining the status quo. Dangerous. I know these views are prevalent in many societies not just Jamaica, but for the Prime Minister to promote homophobia and then clumsily try to squirm his way around it with a pile of words that could be described as nothing other than bullshit is revealing.
Let me know what you think.

The worst thing is - as a Nigerian - that our leaders see this as a good thing. They are the proud vanguard of morality, standing against the decadent white man who, um, was the one who originally gave them this morality...

Oh dear.

And Jamaica wonders why they are so behind the curve...
One of the highest violent crime rates and they're wondering about what batty man is buggering the next one. WTF?! WTF Jamaica?!

@laBiscuitnapper,
Indeed the irony is profound.
It's that damn book.
It's always that damn book.
Or I should say books.

@Bent Society
Oh, soon as he's out if office no doubt.
Arise Sir Bruce, defender of the faith!

My dial-up does not allow me to listen to these things. Sometimes there's an accompanying text that shows the content of what was said. If such a thing is available, do you think you could include it in the future for those whose video capacities are not up to watching/listening to the thing? Thanks for your consideration.

You would think in an economy this bad he would not want to offend some of the only people who actually still have disposable income.

Advertising, now, for a casting on Sat 9th May FOR 600 WHITE MEN to play Medieval extras....doesn't he think that BLACK men can play WHITE men?

What do you think?

The self confidence and arrogance in his ignorance would be unbelievable if we had not just lived through 8 years of W's rock solid ignorance. Or in his case - stupidity. Ignorance can be cured with knowledge, stupidity - well, Lord help us all, especially with these bozos in charge.

That guy will have a good job for life. That's the thing about disasters like war, genocide, etc. One cannot just say sorry and walk away. The resulting problems of such seriousoy failed policies last hundreds of years.

In the U.S., I don't think that anyone would look at him for a second. So he'd probably turn to torture(if he had law degree).

I guess this is what happens when religion is more of a priority than education.
