Those defending Buju never seem to mention the violence against LGBT persons in Jamaica or the fact that Buju's lyrics are about lynching Gay people, not 'disapproving' of homosexuality.

The opinion writer apparently believes that her religion supports defending those advocating lynching Gay people. Sounds like Osama Bin Laden to me.

Buju is done. He lost his chance when he violated the weak "Compassionate Act".

So long as an avalance of genocidal violence against LGBT people this story will have legs. So long as Reggae artists do not apologize to the Gay (directly by name) community for past offenses, this will go on.

I don't think any one culture or people has a right to claim to be more in tune with God than another or whatever their beliefs are. Pretty much every culture and people think their beliefs are the correct ones and that everyone else is wrong.
People all over the world need to get in touch with the reality that if they believe God/Ja/Allah/whatever made us all then there is a good reason that 10% of us are gay/lesbian.

I am a lesbian woman who loves most reggae music-my friends want to know why I don't go to reggae festivals with them-they are straight-I have to explain to them that my wife and I would be alienated and spend more stress on fears of being bashed than we woudl enjoying the music.
So sad that a community that is oppressed would use their power to oppress another group-of which 10% of their own people are gay & lesbian.

Hiding hate behind religion is an abomination to any religion and cowardly. Just stand up and say u are a hater and ignorant-call it what it is=hate and fear.

Embarassing to read what fellow humans (gaybashers) write here. Stop the hatred! You have the problem not the gays, and you sound so unbelievably ignorant. Educate your self! The "adam & steve" analogi is so stupid that even a monkey could have come up with something better... And all because of your cuntface religion..
