The United Nations says the Jamaican government should decriminalise the buggery law. Resident Representative of the United Nations Development Programme, (UNDP) Dr. Arun Kashyap said this should be done as it is in line with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Kashyap said the UN was elated with Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller’s statement in the debates leading up to the 2011 general election. “We were very proud to hear when at that time the candidate and now Prime Minister very proudly said that she would have homosexuals in her cabinet …at this time if you talk to business leaders there is that acceptance but that doesn’t mean that the whole country has accepted that. So rather than rushing through the process, I will always say how do you create the right opportunities and time to do it”. The UN representative said the organisation can assist the government in moving in that direction. “We can start through advocacy, we can certainly start through building capacity, we can start by bringing in the best legal practices, ultimately its up to the Government , how they will handle it. In an ideal world, the earlier it happens the better it is but it also takes some time” he said. Meanwhile, Jamaica’s stance on homosexuality and buggery, will not hinder it receiving money from the Global Fund towards the country’s fight against HIV/AIDS. The assurance was given by Kashyap who was a guest at the weekly forum of the RJR News Centre. There has been concern, that the country could face a reduction in funding for the fight against HIV/AIDS, due to laws banning buggery.

    The whole thing tells you who is at the top! Not playing with words now. Either someone powerful, or a few Gay advocates who are in highly influental position, or positions are pushing this. As they say, money talks and bullshit walks. Pretty soon Jamaica will be a Gay mecca. Its just the sign of the times. Years ago you had gay pepole, never so many funny ones running over the place. Shims were an aberration amongst us. Look now! The place full with disorderly young people flying the gay banner. Why everybody cannot just live and allow others to live. But in the gays case, they are keeping up the pressure regardless of the obvious fact that people are ignoring them now. Times are too hard for people to worry about what people are doing in their lives. But regardless, they just keep pushing the whole agenda down our throats. Worst politicans are towing it because its popular, and we have experienced enough of the politicans games. Just as one plus one is two, we all can see where this is going. Too much power is in the hands of the politicans. Its time for people to start to take back their rights. We all should have the rights to express our feelings about an issue or issues, where majority rules. The power is in the hands of the people! Hope they realised that sooner than later! Gays deserve the rights to live, and so are everyone else.

    Jamaica is one of the most beautiful places in the world. A place with a balance of wood and water under the umbrella of beautiful sunshine. Imagine no snow and the beaches to compliment the heat, where one can cool off even if you have a heatwave. Gays have money cant done and gaining power at an alarming rate. Jamaica is in their sights. But everything happen for a good reason. Hope the people who are wrecking hovac on our beautiful Island see and realised that they are destroying something beautiful. It should not even be an issue. Just as how we live our lives and nobody can ask us wha we do in our homes. Same way gays should go bout dem dam business and stop trying to push down dem dam agenda down other people throats.

    why portia don’t give us a police force that is fit for purpose first before moving onto these batty diggers?

    we need a fit for purpose dna lab
    we need a fit for purpose forensic team
    we need a computerized police database for recording crime

    we need so many things that would benefit all of jamaica’s citizens and the image of jamaica as a whole, why is it fair to concentrate on issues that will benefit a disgusting few?

    The UN gonna use economic bully tactics to remove the buggery law and knowing how licky licky the jamaican government is for money they will bow.

  • Riches says:

    Riches. Obviously the Buggery law no mean nothing. Is like there is a law against smoking, and people still smoking. In America the voting rights act for black people was temporarily extended for 25 years by congress in the George Bush tenure, i think 2006, if my memory surving me right. However, nobody worrying and complaining over that. How about making the rights permanent? Insted people are worrying over Gays, who are getting all the things they want, to the point where they are even executing pressure on top elected politicans, entertainers etc. And they are seeing positive results. Straight people as well as di gays need to understand that there are more than selfish needs to attend to. But then, i don’t know what their ultimate ultimatum is. But in the mean time, i will live and worry bout my problems and let wha a gwaan gwaan. Because if we all do we parts everything will be ok. Tek care a we family, grow we pickny dem good, and try as best as we can to make dis place better, everything will be ok..
