Jamaica Paper Scrapes “Bottom” With Gay Story

There will be no gay education in Jamaica. The education minister denied a newspaper story insisting a pro-gay book would be added to the nation’s curriculum. The news shouldn’t surprise any one, of course – Jamaica’s become quite the homophobic nation. Nor should anyone be surprised by the Jamaica Observer‘s lede:

The education ministry moved swiftly yesterday to quell fears among teachers and parents that it had hit rock bottom by endorsing a school textbook that apparently promoted same-sex unions and homosexuality.

Maybe the homophobes in Warrensburg, Missouri should head on down to Jamaica.

      Prior to 1962, Jamaica was another old British dominion with governor general representing HM the Queen. Since independence, Jamaica’s government still resembles the Canadian, Aussie, and NZ constitutional monarchical democracy.

      After the socialists were defeated, the right wing has a stranglehold on that island. Their homohatred extends to murder without consequence.

      I would never again never again visit that fascist state. Never.

      Out of curiosity, how did Warrensburg Missouri get in here? I went to school there for two years.
