Christian Leaders Trying To Keep Ricky Martin’s Bon-Bon Out Of Honduras

Latin singer Ricky Martin may have come out as a “fortunate homosexual man” but his luck isn’t so good in Honduras, where he’s scheduled to perform on October 16: Religious leaders are demanding the government block his entry into the country because as a gay dad, “his nuclear family is not the type of family that Honduran society and laws approve of.”

According to Fox News Latino, Minister of Interior Áfrico Madrid claims Evangelical and Catholic leaders have asked that he deny a visa to Martin in order to “protect the moral and ethical principles of our society.”

We’d like to take a moment to remind you that Honduras has one of the highest murder rates in the world, including a string of uninvestigated LGBT deaths. But, hey, giving a pop star a hard time is probably more important.
