Gay people need not apply to Jamaican cabinet

Well, Well, Well…

So now the whole world is exposed to Jamaica’s ugly underbelly; the extreme homophobic aspects of their society.

Bruce Golding, the Prime Minister of Jamaica in responding to harsh criticisms and a call for action by a Canadian gay human rights group Egale Canada, to protect gay Jamaicans from abuse and sometimes murder responded via a British talk show, Hardtalk by emphatically declaring that there would be no room for gays in his cabinet and that acceptance of homosexuality is not necessarily the direction in which he wants to take his nation.

 

 

 

All of this from an educated, businessman that leads one of the more developed countries in the Caribbean!

How can the Caribbean progress when ideas like these are held and perpetuated by the intellectuals and elite in the upper echelons of West Indian society?
