The hardliners, cavemen ( way back thinkers) and the "men of the cloth" are revvvvvving up for the election. The hard liners hope to influence their favorite politico to continue with the backward, no long term thinking approach to Cayman's social and economic woes. The "men of the cloth".....want....well I don't think they know what they want. When did Cayman's clergy make the transformation to economic and political experts. Instead of working up a sweat and getting a hoasre voice over homosexuals and protecting their croonie politico they should be preaching about, adultery, child abuse, early pregnancy, single motherhood, gangs violence and on and on and on. I know in my heart that the Linton's and far wing clergy are in the minority, I just wish the rest of us would speak up more often to drown out their dribble.
All the best

I JUST WISH PEOPLE IN POSITIONS OF AUTHORITY WOULD NOT ABUSE THEIR AUTHORITY BY KNOWINGLY LEADING THEIR BLIND SHEEP ASTRAY OF WHAT BIBLICAL TEACHINGS ACTUALLY SAY.

I WILL GRANT THAT THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN TWO MEN LAY WITH EACH OTHER IT IS AN ABOMINATION. HOWEVER, IT DOESN'T SAY TO HATE THOSE TWO MEN.

THE BIBLE ALSO SAYS NOT TO WORSHIP FALSE IDOLS BUT TOO MANY PARISHONERS DEIFY THEIR PASTORS WHEN THEY SHOULD BE MORE AWARE THAT THE PREACHERS, PRIESTS, PASTORS, ETC... ARE NOT CLOSER TO GOD IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT THEY STAND IN AN ELEVATED PULPIT.

GOD DIDN'T BRING US INTO HEAVEN TO TEACH US, HE CAME DOWN TO EARTH. IF MORE RELIGIOUS LEADERS WERE DOWN TO EARTH AND SPENT A LITTLE TIME IN THE (IN THE WORDS OF JOHNNY CASH) THE MUD, THE BLOOD, AND THE BEER THEY MIGHT HAVE A MORE REALISTIC PERSPECTIVE ON THEIR TEACHINGS.

I WISH PEOPLE WERE MORE WARY OF LEADERS WHO TRY TO CONVINCE THEM HOW SMART OR HOW HOLY THEY ARE. "HE SPEAKS MUCH, WHO KNOWS LITTLE."

THANKS FOR YOU COMMENTS LACH - rtm

Well I finally read the above comments suggesting that I should be subject to a hate campaign of some sort for expressing my opinion. And thanks for giving my address and phone number.
By the way no letters or calls were received.
I suggest you start out by re-reading my comments as published.
Nowhere did I say that I hated gays or they should be hung. This is just not true. Nor does it reflect my views, which have been totally twisted out of proportion. In fact I support gay marriage. Shame on you!

To repeat, my points were as follows:
1. Men kissing makes me gag. Sorry but it does. Take a survey, most men feel the same way.

2. Different countries and states have different laws and points of view.

To give a personal example, my fiancee is from Hong Kong. It is not considered proper to make any public displays of affection in Hong Kong. Even between a man and a woman. So guess what, when we are in Hong Kong we don't kiss or hold hands in public.

Is it that hard to try to stay in tune with the sensibilities of the country you are in?

Or must you insist on forcing your point of view down everyone's throat?

Norman Linton

ACTUALLY YES - I DO INSIST ON FORCING MY POINT OF VIEW DOWN EVERYONE'S THROAT.

ADDRESSING YOUR POINTS:
1) THAT IS A GENERALIZATION BY A HOMOPHOBIC MALE. ASK A NON-HOMOPHOBE AND THEY DON'T GIVE A TOSS ABOUT TWO MEN KISSING. I NOTICE YOU DON'T MENTION TWO WOMEN KISSING. YOU MUST HAVE CINEMAX

2)YES DIFFERENT STATES HAVE DIFFERENT LAWS. I'M NOT AWARE THAT PDA IS A CRIME IN CAYMAN.

I'VE BEEN TO HONG KONG AND I AM ADMITTEDLY IGNORANT OF LOCAL MORES REGARDING PDA BETWEEN CONSENTING ADULTS, WHICH IS WHY I DIDN'T THINK TWICE ABOUT HOLDING MY GIRLFRIEND'S HAND OR STEALING AN OCCASSIONAL KISS IN PUBLIC. I WAS NOT ARRESTED, ACCOSTED, CONFRONTED BY ANYONE OR IN ANYWAY DETAINED OR BERATED FOR MY BEHAVIOUR. GOOD EXAMPLE NORMAN - THANKS FOR HELPING ME MAKE MY POINT.

AND NO, IT'S NOT TOO MUCH TO ASK THAT PEOPLE MAINTAIN THEIR SENSIBILITIES. BUT I ALSO BELIEVE THAT IT'S NOT TOO MUCH TO ASK PEOPLE TO FOSTER AN ATTITUDE OF RESPECT FOR BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS INSTEAD OF FOSTERING DIVISIVNESS AND HATRED. IF MEMORY SERVES A HALF-BLACK US PRESIDENT RAN A SUCCESSFUL CAMPAIGN BASED UPON THIS VERY THEORY OF UNITY AND PEACE.

BY THE WAY, WHAT ARE YOU DOING POSTING ON MY BLOG? I THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING TO SPEND $100,000 TO SUE ME FOR HARASSMENT.

THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENTS - rtm
