Homophobia and bigotry generally in the Bahamas

This article in The Nassau Guardian makes sobering reading; it is always curious to me how so-called 'men of the cloth' can have such bizarre views, people who are able to inculcate their odious doctrine to growing children - so they become bigted adults just like their pastors and their parents. Not a surprise of course because a number of Caribbean islands (Jamaica, etc) are notorious for their strong antipathy to homosexuality in any form. Not places I plan to waste any of my money visiting.
