Hats off to the Cayman Islands for being a “welcoming jurisdiction to all people.”
The latest parade of hatred includes a genius named Norman Linton who stops short of advocating hanging or shooting homosexuals. He also draws Alabama and Mississippi into the mix for some odd reason as Alabama and Mississippi had zero reported incidents of sexual-orientation related hate crimes for the most recent reporting period.
But apparently Cayman can feel proud of itself for not shooting or hanging Aaron Chandler and his boyfriend and they both should count themselves as lucky for being in such a safe jurisdiction while they were not breaking the law.
In Cayman you never hear of anyone hanging from a tree; being shot in a drive by; having their hand chopped off; having their face slashed with a machete; tourists being assaulted; senselessly butchering endangered blue iguanas; being murdered and stuffed in a car and set on fire… But if you did hear of stuff like this happening in Cayman, I’m sure it would be because of homosexual activity, right Norm?
Norman also says that men or women kissing in public makes him gag. I don’t guess you go to a lot of weddings, do ya Norm? And Valentine Day must REALLY suck at the Linton household.
Norman’s “different countries have different rules” philosophy has already been refuted as Cayman doesn’t appear to have a law or even a rule about people kissing in public; but that didn’t stop him from applying faulty logic in his comparative analysis of multi-jurisdictional human rights statutes in an attempt to make the violation participated in by Cayman somehow less significant because in our incident no one was shot or hanged. Everyone in Cayman stand up and pat yourselves on your backs.
So, if you’re from Alabama, Mississippi or Iran – give Norman a call or drop him a postcard and enlighten him as to exactly what is and isn’t an okay way to treat human beings. His phone number out of the Cable and Wireless online directory is (345) 945-7554 and his address is below.
Show your support for his right to freedom of expression and ask him why his exercise of that right is somehow more significant than others’ rights to freely express love and affection to their significant others.
And ask him how much solace he finds in a not altogether accurate fact that people get shot and hung in other jurisdictions but not in Cayman.
If anyone needs me, I’ll be in Florida on the beach today. I’d ask Norm to join me but the beach I go to doesn’t allow violence-advocating, dumb-ass, close-minded, hateful, idiotic, separatist, mental midgets – but it does allow beer.
Maybe the gay kissers should try Iran? They would be hung there or shot. (I’m not sure I’d try it in Alabama or Mississippi either).
I personally don’t care about what people do in the privacy of their own homes. But men or women kissing each other in public makes me gag.
Different countries have different rules. For example, it is OK to have a glass of wine or beer on the beach in Cayman, but you would be arrested for doing so on many Florida beaches.
