The Reverend Devon Dick , Pastor of Boulevard Baptist Church, wrote an article in Thursday’s Daily Gleaner Titled ,[Homophobia in
reverse]. In the Article the reverend re-visited the ongoing debate surrounding comments made by Senior Superintendent Fitz Bailey,regarding what he construed to be the disproportionate involvement of gays in the much vaunted lotto scam. Bailey a senior police commander in Jamaica, accused gays of being the main perpetrators of lottery scams, the nation’s top police officer said that was not true.
Commissioner Owen Ellington was not happy with Bailey’s statement and expressed regret “for any concern, anxiety, and any appearance of unfair labeling which may have been construed.” Ellington also said the Jamaican Constabulary Force does not single out individual groups in their policing procedures. Of note is the fact that SSP Bailey have made no retraction, and stands by his comments.
In his Article Dick gave a reasoned , intelligent summation as it relates to the facts,. Of course this continue to be a sore topic in the world, and probably more so in Jamaica ,a country that is less tolerant of homosexuality(. find link here Jamaica Gleaner.com).
Homosexuals the world over and those in Jamaica want to have us believe their crusade is for acceptance.
The truth is Homosexuals are really not looking for acceptance, most people really do not care what anyone does in the confines, and privacy of their own homes . What they want to do is to have us disavow our way of life. They want to force their lifestyle down our throats, making the union between a man and woman suddenly old-fashioned, outdated , and plain stupid. They demagogue people who disagree with them , painting them homophobes .
As I have said in previous blogs I do not need anyone to show me data to support homosexuality, I do not need any kind of information in support of that lifestyle, I know it is wrong. I do not support Homosexuality, neither do I agree with it, I however do NOT fear homosexuals, last time I looked a phobia was a fear. Some homosexuals believe people should tip-toe around them, now they are telling us when we see them committing crimes we should not use their special characteristic to describe them. Jamaica’s police commissioner Owen Ellington has shown a lack of backbone, he has succumbed to pressure and political correctness, and he ought to be ashamed.
I do not care about what Ellington has done in the past, on this subject he showed absolute cowardice. Frankly I do not care about Ellington , what worries me is that he would leave SSP Bailey out to dry when Bailey was absolutely correct. It is a sad day for humanity when we surrender our dignity on the altar of financial expediency. Buggery is a crime in Jamaica as it should, Owen Ellington has no legs on which to stand on this issue, save and except for the adulation of gays and lesbians, the criminal rights supporters in Amnesty International, and the other anarchistic groups which run Jamaica. A wise man once said those who stand for nothing , falls for anything. There seem to be no shortage of supporters of homosexuality these days in Jamaica. I was literally stunned to see the levels of condemnation of SSP Bailey on this matter, And then it hit me. The problem was not with the message. When one considers Jamaica, a society where most people condemn homosexuality, the outrage against SSP Bailey’s statements are particularly stunning. It shows an apparent disconnect from the seriousness of the message ,and a contempt for the messenger.
Jamaica’ Police still suffers today from the stigma of being created as night watchmen. To this day there are no rich people’s children in the police department. I am appalled that the people stuck as they are in all things pre-colonial Jamaica , still have not figured out who the real enemy is. As Election season draws closer they are getting out their Orange and green shirts to celebrate those they elevate to the status of deity, Politicians, opportunistic vultures that preys on their ignorance , then suck the blood from them like modern-day vampires.
Even Devon Dick in his supposed support of Fitz Bailey unwittingly falls into the trap of disrespecting SSP Bailey.
If Bailey came to the conclusion that participants in a homosexual lifestyle are the main perpetrators in the illegal lottery scam based on prejudice or based on deportment, then he should be disciplined.
Those comments would be better suited or directed at an errant child.
Not an accomplished educated professional .
Jamaicans shown their propensity for the ways of their old colonial masters, and to this day their vocabulary reflects it , nowhere is it more evident than in the vocabulary of the snooty uptown social climbers.
They continue to talk about disciplining grown accomplished people, how about using the word (sanction). They refer to Police officers as (rude) how about using the word disrespectful? They continue to refer to police officers as police bway , whilst at the same time demanding respect from police officers. Were that information coming from the liberal bedrock called the UWI no one would have a problem with it, facts are facts. Jamaicans are still mired in their little castes, still reaching for their piece of the aristocracy.
If the suspect has, or demonstrates homosexual tendencies by his or her actions , where is it written that law enforcement should ignore those identifying characteristics?
Homosexuals and their supporters want to force the rest of us who have to conform to societal norms, to ignore them as a group when they commit crimes , but elevate them above, and at the expense of our heterosexual values.
