Members of the Jamaica Coalition for A Healthy Society and other groups are currently staging a protest in Mona at the intersection of Mona Road and Araila Drive.

The protestors say they are mourning the loss of free speech under the Obama administration. They believe that Christians have lost their freedom of religion especially on issues dealing with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transponder community (LGBT).

The group said the Obama administration appointed a special envoy to focus on the LGBT matters in February and this is a sign that the goal is to champion those rights across the world.

The group came out at about 8:45 this morning, handing out flyers, showing among other things, scientific data about the dangers of men having sex with men.

Members of group said they would remain at the location until about 11 a.m.
