The buggery law places a social barrier on what may be consider normal intimate
The LGBT Lobby’s “rights agenda” is framed in moral nihilism (everything is
permissible). A necessary requirement for this agenda to progress is removal of
buggery / sodomy laws so that all intimate activities may be regarded as equal

Same-Sex Marriage The Endgame

THE EDITOR, Sir:
Former Prime Minister Bruce Golding has exposed the heart of the current debate over the ‘rights’ claims and the goals of the LGBT lobby.
If, on the basis of personal taste, we eradicate the gender restriction on marriage that has served society well for millennia, on what logical objective basis could the numerical or any other restriction be retained?
It has become increasingly clear that the much-maligned buggery law is a philosophical and legal ‘great wall’, an enormous societal barrier. It is not a barrier to the treatment or the prevention of HIV; that much is clear. Nor is it necessarily any barrier to the exercise of valid fundamental human rights of homosexuals.
On the contrary, it is a barrier to the redefinition of marriage, and the reorganisation of society around new norms. The retention of the law facilitates recognition of natural and unnatural sexual activity based on conformity with design.
It is for this reason that many persons in Jamaica want this law to be retained, and it is for this reason that a determined minority will trample the fundamental freedoms of everyone else to ensure its repeal.
