BBC NEWS | Magazine | Growing up gay in Jamaica

The BBC is running a story about Growing up gay in Jamaica and the persecution that that entails, daily intimidation, beatings, even murder. Of course all with the support of the church and government.

Most of the appologists where trotting out the old arguments that the bible bans homosexuality, if it does so what? It also bans eating shellfish[Leviticus 10-12], and women wearing trousers. Genocide however is fine [Deuteronomy 7:1-2] as is killing children and child sex slaves [Numbers 31:1-18]. Should we really be using this kind of book as any kind of moral guide?
