We will not bow to gays

The Editor, Sir:

In reading the article on April 13, written by Jason McFarlane, I get the distinct impression that he believes that J-Flag is doing Jamaica a favour by supporting Jamaica and by not lobbying the Government to accept the homosexual way of life.

This Government, if nothing else, has firmly stated its position on such a move. The Constitution has not changed its position either. It is therefore not a favour that J-Flag and their number are doing the majority of Jamaicans but simply saving themselves.

The majority of Jamaicans are awaiting the J-Flag and their sympathisers to go to other countries which are more tolerant and leave Jamaica with its intrinsic values of non-embracing of homosexuality.

We shall not change that stance; should we do that, we could asked to relax our position on bestiality and paedophilia as well, because they are all the same sin.

Mr McFarlane, with all due respect, if you cannot accept the will of the majority of Jamaicans, please leave the country, we beg you. It is like the minority insisting that the majority capitulate for it. No, it will never happen. Just leave.

I am, etc.,
