And It's Hard As A Rock

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.
