    I don't know much about Jamaica's economy but from what I have read, tourism is a major component of the country's foreign exchange among its other industries.

    I guess the leadership would have to take into consideration of whether the market of GLBT tourists are worth losing or keeping, considering what percentage of tourism dollars this segment brings in.

    I had recently heard of the ingrained homophobia through other articles and blogs about that country. Unfortunately, I thought most of the world was on par with acceptance or even tolerance of GLBT individuals. Well, I guess I was wrong.

    Although I think a ban and a boycott wouldn't necessarily change the views of Jamaica's leadership or its people, the human rights group in Canada may just have to take their tourist dollars to countries more tolerant and accepting of the GLBT way of life.

    But like it has been said, "Money talks and bullshyt walks". And if their tourism sector starts to show any significant decline from this ban and also the decline of their goods and services, I'm sure Bruce Golding would soften up to that money flowing back into the country once again . . .

    We will never and ever accept those people and their money in our holy community. May Yah bless Jamaica and its prime minister.

    Bless you all
