THE EDITOR, Sir:
Maurice Tomlinson's guest column 'Not cashing in on gay tourist dollar' (Gleaner, September 30,) was, at best, hilarious.
Jamaicans are not homophobic. We are proud and tend to set our own trend, so not because the entire world is jumping off a cliff, we will follow suit.
Our laws will not change because we think gays are right, even if gay-rights activists like Mr Tomlinson bully us into changing them. You will still never be 'right'. That, I believe, is the never-ending problem.
Gays will never be satisfied, even if we abolish the law permitting them to do whatever they wish. I believe what Tomlinson is fighting for as an activist is something that all gays already have - the freedom to love whomever they please openly.
What you really want is for us to accept an unnatural act as being 'right'. That is why I take pity on your fight for 'gay rights'.
So even if the law changes, Jamaicans will never accept that way of life. So fight all you may for what you already have. Changing legislation still won't make it right.
