Antigua and Barbuda

News of the island-wide devastation broke my heart into pieces.
It's not only pathetic but it shows just how much homophobia queers in Antigua and Barbuda deal with.
It is no secret that state policies in this country continue to be influenced by the church. The very constitution is built on the fundamental beliefs of Christianity. So how can a government say it protects members of the LGBT community when this type of blatant discrimination is being encouraged and spread through the media?
Instead of focusing on the "stories of Sodom and Gomorrah" and using that in the same conversation about a horrific incident that has left many homeless here in Canada, you should go and find your heart because your comments are shameful and distasteful.
