Sail back from whence you came

Dear Editor,

Cha ching! Just like that $1 billion has flowed from the superbly "caring" hands of the Canadian Government into the eager hands of our politicians and government officials.

This amazingly generous offer will go towards meeting our greatest need, which is fighting against gang violence and strengthening parenting in Jamaica, but wait — no it won't — it is going into two projects: Strengthening Access Inclusion and Leadership (SAIL) for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) and We-Talk to deal with gender-based violence. Each will run for five years, engaging boys and girls, educators, health professionals, parents, and the community, according to The Gleaner article titled 'Canada rolls out billion-dollar gender equality initiatives in Jamaica'.

You can identify those countries which care about you and have no ulterior motive by the fact that they skip the issues for which Jamaica really needs help and want to teach our children about LGBT and abortion rights! Just great.

Does it shock our politicians to know that all that glitters isn't gold? We ought to be concerned that our Government has accepted billions of dollars from foreigners who wish to advance their ideas concerning sex, gender, and the value of human life, which are antithetical to the opinions of many Jamaicans and, in my opinion, are at odds with our culture and values.

Sexual rights are LGBT rights, including same-sex marriage, homosexual adoption, gender transition surgeries, drag queen story hour in schools, boys in girls bathrooms, all of which are commonplace in Canada. Reproductive rights are abortion rights, and in Canada they are allowed to have abortions at any stage in the life of the foetus, and it's taxpayer funded!

Between 2007 and 2020 the Canadian Institute for Health Information reported 1,326,408 legal abortions, nearly half of Jamaica's population. And their population is collapsing because of this. This is a neocolonialist effort to make us into their own corrupt image, that which the citizens of Jamaica clearly disagree with as seen in the recent Don Anderson Polls on abortion and the buggery law.

Meanwhile, "local advocacy organisations" were listed among those that will be used to sail sexual perversion and pro-abortion lies into the hearts of Jamaica's youth. Caribbean Vulnerable Communities Coalition (CVC) website shows that it is in search of a gender specialist and a field manager to run the SAIL project. What do you think the Canadians mean when they say they want a gender specialist? One thing is for sure, that person won't have the right answer to the modern world's simplest and most controversial question: "Who is a woman?" But they will certainly be sharing their newly invented and transitioned ideas regarding gender with our children over the next five years.

They have the money to do it, and they think they have the power. But will the people let them? Are we a docile and subservient people? Wrong island! If you see these SAIL people, tell them to pack up and sail back to Canada with their ideas.

As long as we have breath in our bodies we must protect our children from those who have money but no regard for truth, our culture, and or our values.
