Jamaican LGBT rights advocate says ” christians are to “International Day of Human Rights” as Klu Klux Klan to Black history month” ; North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) calls itself a “civil rights” organisation.

 

“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance”.

… ? Thomas  Jefferson…

December 10th is celebrated  as World  Human Rights Day.

Human beings are  however  able  to corrupt  the most  noble  of  institutions  and intentions  so  some  persons  are  using  human rights as  a  vehicle to provide legal  underpinning  to  abnormal  and  depraved  behaviours.

We must  be  vigilant  if  we  are  to resist  attempts  to  fundamentally  re-order  our  societies  resulting  in restrictions  on real  human  rights  like freedom of  speech  and  parental  rights to tell  their  children  what is right  or  wrong.

“Gay rights”  are   special  rights which have been created  by  LGBT activists in order  to  advance  the  LGBT agenda  and  restrict other persons  their  universally accepted human rights.  

The  North American Man / Boy Love Association (NAMBLA)  is  one  organisation which frames  its position as  one  of  civil  rights.

Two American anti-LGBT advocates on Saturday are scheduled to speak at a Jamaica conference organized by groups defending the country’s sodomy law. Mat Staver, chair of the Liberty Counsel, and Dr. Judith Reisman, who routinely challenges Alfred Kinsey’s research on sexuality, are among those expected to attend the International Human Rights Conference in Kingston, the Jamaican capital, that the Jamaica Coalition for a Healthy Society has co-organized with the Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship and Jamaica CAUSE.

The conference’s program states Staver will discuss “global legal trends impacting the institution of the family.” Reisman will speak about “Kinsey heritage and the threat to family.” “Contemporary society has become increasingly hostile to the traditional definitions of marriage and family,” reads the conference’s program. “Yet these two institutions are the ideal, fundamental and valuable components for a healthy national development. Conference speakers and participants will explore the reasons for family, the threats against it and how to practically build a culture of family in the Jamaican context.”

The Jamaica Coalition for a Healthy Society, the Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship and Jamaica CAUSE are also organizing a rally at a Kingston park on Dec. 10 that will coincide with International Human Rights Day. They describe the event as “an evening of song, dance and poetry celebrating God the giver of perfect law and rights.” The Liberty Counsel in recent years has defended Florida’s constitutional amendment that defines marriage as between a man and a woman and other anti-LGBT laws in the U.S. The group last year filed a federal lawsuit against the New Jersey statute that bans “ex-gay” conversion therapy. Reisman in a May 2013 column she wrote for World Net Daily blasted the Boy Scouts of America’s decision to lift its ban on openly gay Scouts. “Eroticize the campsite and you eroticize boys to one another and to their leaders,” she said. “‘Gay Scoutmasters’ will arrive soon to ‘help’ ‘their’ lads, to train and encourage them — to believe they are naturally ‘that way.’” Reisman in 2009 suggested the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network is “a modern version of the Hitler Youth.” Jamaican LGBT advocates blast conference organizers Piero Tozzi of the Alliance Defending Freedom spoke about the need to keep the statute in place during a 2011 symposium the Jamaica Coalition for a Healthy Society and the Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship held at the University of the West Indies in Kingston. Brian Camenker of MassResistence, an anti-LGBT organization based in suburban Boston the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated as a hate group, spoke at a Jamaica Coalition for a Healthy Society rally that took place in a Kingston park last December. The group and the Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship earlier that month co-organized a conference in the Jamaican capital at which Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for the Truth About Homosexuality, spoke.

Jamaican LGBT rights advocates with whom the Washington Blade spoke this week sharply criticized the Jamaica Coalition for a Healthy Society, the Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship and Jamaica CAUSE for inviting Staver and Reisman to speak at their conference. “I find it interesting that the groups which argue that Jamaica is importing ‘foreign values,’ which urge us to resist ‘North American’ influences and which repeatedly accuse LGBT Jamaicans of being supported and assisted by ‘foreigners’ are themselves inviting ‘foreigners,’ the very same evil Americans and Europeans into our country,” said Angeline Jackson, executive director of Quality of Citizenship Jamaica, a group that advocates on behalf of lesbian and bisexual women and transgender Jamaicans.

“It always amazes me that as Jamaicans we often resist information that is new and different to what we have known, even if it comes from other Jamaicans and worse if it is coming from a ‘white person,’” added Jackson in an e-mail to the Blade. “Yet we are the very same ones who will hang on to every word of the ‘white person’ who continues to provide us with information we already believe and are comfortable with.” Yvonne McCalla Sobers, chair of Dwayne’s House, an organization named after Dwayne Jones, a cross-dressing teenager who was murdered last year outside Montego Bay, that provides support to young LGBT Jamaicans who are homeless, agreed. “Local conservative Pentecostalists have close links with U.S. counterparts who carry to countries like Jamaica the anti-gay venom that North America and Europe no longer tolerates,” she told the Blade. “So it is no surprise to see these speakers in Jamaica. It’s just alarming to see them trying to capture International Human Rights Day. [It is] rather similar to the Ku Klux Klan trying to take over Black History Month.” – See more at: http://www.washingtonblade.com/2014/12/06/anti-lgbt-advocates-u-s-speak-jamaica-conference/#sthash.bH8VjSkf.dpuf

WHO WE ARE

WELCOME! The North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) was formed in 1978. It was inspired by the success of a campaign based in Boston’s gay community to defend against a local witchhunt.

NAMBLA’s goal is to end the extreme oppression of men and boys in mutually consensual relationships by:

building understanding and support for such relationships;
educating the general public on the benevolent nature of man/boy love;
cooperating with lesbian, gay, feminist, and other liberation movements;
supporting the liberation of persons of all ages from sexual prejudice and oppression.
Our membership is open to everyone sympathetic to man/boy love and personal freedom.
NAMBLA calls for the empowerment of youth in all areas, not just the sexual. We support greater economic, political and social opportunities for young people and denounce the rampant ageism that segregates and isolates them in fear and mistrust. We believe sexual feelings are a positive life force. We support the rights of youth as well as adults to choose the partners with whom they wish to share and enjoy their bodies.

We condemn sexual abuse and all forms of coercion. Freely-chosen relationships differ from unwanted sex. Present laws, which focus only on the age of the participants, ignore the quality of their relationships. We know that differences in age do not preclude mutual, loving interaction between persons. NAMBLA is strongly opposed to age-of-consent laws and all other restrictions which deny men and boys the full enjoyment of their bodies and control over their own lives.

NAMBLA does not provide encouragement, referrals or assistance for people seeking sexual contacts. NAMBLA does not engage in any activities that violate the law, nor do we advocate that anyone else should do so.

We call for fundamental reform of the laws regarding relations between youths and adults. Today, many thousands of men and boys are unjustly ground into the disfunctional criminal justice system. Blindly, this system condemns consensual, loving relationships between younger and older people. NAMBLA’s Prisoner Program, with limited resources, works to provide a modicum of humanity to some of these people. Click here to find out more.

NAMBLA is a political, civil rights, and educational organization. We provide factual information and help educate society about the positive and beneficial nature of man/boy love. Become an active member! You can help in this historic struggle!
