Democratic Labour Party (DLP) & Barbados Labour Party (BLP) Get Failing Grade On The Issue Of Homosexuality
Reverend Joseph Atherley | Dr. Esther Byer-Suckoo
In a debate on Voice of Barbados (VOB) this afternoon, the two main parties got the opportunity to discuss how it intends to roll out its social investment policy. Visitors to Barbados Underground over time would have arrived at the opinion that we are firmly of the view that the success of any society is rooted in the need to practice ‘old fashion’ values. A common theme of our articles has been the preponderance of focus on economic strategies at the expense of policy formulation effecting social capital. One of those values which we have been speaking out about is the willingness of modern governments to fashion policies based on lifestyles or what the technocrats call relativism. One lifestyle behaviour which has taken on a momentum of its own is the issue of homosexuality. Unfortunately, this issue has taken a political turn, and the consequence of it all is the intellectualizing of this issue which has the potential to interact with others to destabilize our small societies.
