I really wouldn’t recommend watching the entire two dreary hours of this rubbish but it shows the level of close-minded imbecility that exists. That some of the panelists hold positions at universities etc is more disturbing than I wish to discuss. The first speaker from Barbados speaks of the unbelievable chutzpah of LGBT people to now demand the same civil rights as everyone else. “Wikipedia is not on our side anyhow” – as he reads from the entry.
As a rule, once you see ‘gay agenda’ you can safely assume you are dealing with misguided religious zealots.

One hundred and sixty seven years ago the first indentured laborers from India arrived at the shores of T&T. Since then they have become part of the social and cultural fabric of the country and changed it forever. T&T is a better and brighter place for the contribution of the Indian community. Much happiness and the best of wishes to the descendants of those who crossed the ‘kala pani’ ( black water) in search of a better life for themselves and their children.

A groundbreaking debate on a clause of the Children Bill during committee stage in the Senate this evening ( ongoing) involving a clause that includes buggery. Anand repeated that a national debate needs to be undertaken – the Independent Senators weren’t taking that.
On the suggestion that the AG made that changing the clause would result in decriminalizing same sex acts – a senator said – well maybe that is why we should remove it?
Female Senator – so if a young heterosexual couple have sex and the girl gets pregnant that is okay but if a same sex couple do they have to go to YTC or Womens Prison?
Sen. Balgobin: We cannot base new legislation based on backward laws – ” the time to turn the tide is now”
The Independent Senators ( and others- I was listening on the car radio) were so united on the issue they called for division ( vote) so their objections would be noted. The AG eventually asked that the Opposition meet and discuss their position on the issue and that the clause in question be deferred. This means another animated round of discussion is ahead.
Very proud of the Independent Senators right now.
Independent Senator Rolph Balgobin. ( after midnight in the Senate)

Those who obsess about others not being ‘normal’ should learn that on a cosmic level our little blue planet isn’t normal either.
