Lose no sleep over sodomy law

Published:Tuesday | June 16, 2015 | 6:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I read Dr Alfred Sangster's article in The Sunday Gleaner of June 14, 2015 ('Gay flag of US imperialism') and was surprisingly aroused by his major concern: US imperialism of alternative lifestyle - particularly the lesbian and gay lifestyle.

But should we be concerned that the US is trying to push us into a comply-or-die situation if we refuse to surrender to pressure to adopt sodomy?

The advice to Dr Sangster and others is this: Do not lose any sleep over the matter. I am prepared to bet my last dollar that Jamaica is more likely to pass laws that legalise polygamy rather than sodomy, despite the many challenges we are facing.
