    What I like most about the article, is not the reading about some tin pot dictator wannabee christian potentates, and their tiresome repeat of the same old shit, but rather this:

    “The group’s ire seems to stem from the expected outcome of the unprecedented case in which gay activist Jason Jones is challenging this country’s homophobic laws.

    Back in January, High Court judge Devindra Rampersad reserved his decision after hearing submissions in the landmark case. Rampersad is expected to deliver his judgment on April 12.

    In the lawsuit, Jones is challenging the sections 13 and 16 of the Sexual Offences Act, which criminalises buggery and serious indecency even between consenting adults.

    Jones is claiming that the legislation contravenes his constitutional rights to privacy and freedom of thought and expression.”

    I think that, living in a homophobic country and culture, that someone like Jason Jones should be commended for his courage and fortitude. I know nothing else about him, but can’t help but admire this part of him, that he takes action in a big and public way, against culture persecution, to bring about change. How wonderful to see that!
