Boycotts

This American Tourist Is En Route to Jamaica

With BoycottJamaica.org, American gay activists Michael Petrelis, Wayne Besen, and Jim Burroway have branded the island nation as a breeding ground of homophobia that we shouldn’t support. But that doesn’t mean the rest of America agrees. Here’s one tourist who plans on visiting, bigotry be damned:

A letter printed in the Jamaica Gleaner:

Gay activists are targeting Jamaica because it is an easy target – plain and simple. Many US states have a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman.

I’m amazed at how time and time again those promoting the virtues of tolerance and diversity are the least tolerant (and the least diverse) of all.

Just recently, the gay rights group in San Francisco refused to accept the passage of Proposition 8, the traditional marriage initiative. Decisions by voters in Florida, Arizona and California to join residents of 27 other states with constitutional protections for traditional marriage have prompted threats of violence against Christians and their churches.

I think that violence against anyone is wrong, no one should have to suffer. I’m really tired of the gay community trying to silence anyone who happens to have a different (moral) opinion on things. They do this every time. It’s time to stand up.

The main thing that angers me about the Jamaica boycott site is how the gay and lesbian lobby thinks it can dictate the policy and laws of another sovereign nation.

Mark my words: The gay movement is doing far more harm to its cause than good with this bullying approach. It won’t work.

I can’t help but believe that for every one person who joins in this wrong-headed boycott, there will be two others who will make an extra effort to support Jamaica.

Jamaica is a Christian nation. Christians are not required by faith to support anyone who supports what God has deemed immoral.

A Christian will stand by higher moral convictions by not contributing in any way, shape or form, to those who wilfully defy God’s decrees, especially where morality is concerned. Jamaica simply will not compromise where the word of God is concerned.

I am coming to visit Jamaica and I am going to plan a long vacation there, and encourage all others who stand against immorality to do the same.
