The Queer War Against Dancehall/Reggae Music - When Will it Stop?

By: Gibbi Geraz


During the last three years, Gay organizations worldwide have banded together to rally against reggae musicians who they claim create, inspire and promote “murder” music.

But what is murder music?

The definition by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance against Discrimination states that murder music is “music which promotes the killing and abuse of homosexual people”.

But have they taken into account the cultural moral values of the society from which this music originates?

To me it seems as though the Gay movement in its zest to gain outward social acceptance within the Caribbean region has used Reggae as a scapegoat in a quest to quell the cultural constitute that homosexuality is wrong.

In the predominately black community of Jamaica, the Christian religious philosophy is a powerful influence on the moral views of the people, whether they are practicing Christians or not. The family values and attitudes are based on the bible and its laws. Even the Rastafarian principles are guided by the good book. The biblical interpretation of sexual guidelines state that homosexuality must not be practiced or preached, and it is this rule which is the core dispute in the current gay onslaught of reggae music.

But let the fact be known. Homosexuals have always existed within the Jamaican community; they have been contributing members to the social development of this country and have been accepted and respected by their peers. But their sexuality was never flaunted; it was never revered or praised. If you gay in Jamaica, it was always understated and quiet. Suspired, but never evident.

In North America and Europe throughout the course of history, homosexuals were always a flamboyant presence in social circles. As the world became smaller and more global the urge for outward social presence in colonial regions were forced upon the lower social class in very crude ways. The physiological impression that has been left on this society because of the forceful nature of expatriate homosexuals created the surge that instilled the aggressiveness towards homosexuals.

But not just any homosexual. The flaunty and flamboyant. The expressive effeminate, and the down and dirty bisexual. The ones who are recognized as the “converters”. The sexual deviant, who lures your son and daughter, who tempt the underprivileged. The sexual criminal.

It is this stark contrast that GLAAD and other organization of its kind fail to perceive. The music is not targeting the positive influences, but the negative elements amongst them. Yet they fail to recognize this.

Until they do, The War Will Continue.

I agree with all of the above. Homosexuality is a sin point blank. It is written in the bible,and people need to stop trying to justify their nasty lifestyle. I don't care how you slice it or dice it.....nuff said.

The article has a lot of truths as it regards our Christian upbringing and all its trappings and those of us whom are heterosexual and profess to be espousing Christian values must be aware that we can't selectively pick parts of the bible which is the road map for us Christians to follow and ignore the parts we disagree with. the first commandment categorically says DO NOT KILL how then can one profess to be Christian or of the faith and advocate killing, how can a nation that is supposed to be largely Christian kill almost a thousand of it's fellow citizens each year? and by the way did the bible not say (1)let the weath and the tares grow together until the day of harvest, (2)judge not lest ye be judged , it seem to me that they people who are yelling the loudest are the people whom are least sure about their own sexuality, , yes we abhor the homosexual lifestyle , however it is just one sin, and no greater than any other , least of all killing, so maybe we need to get our priorities straight, it is a sad day when those ignoromases can be speaking for our nation.

This article holds a lot of truth and as cristian people we should know that only god can judge and these homosexuals will get their judgment one day but before that day we need to protect our children from this "lifestyle" because it's everywhere in the media and it disgusts me these people think we are the wrong ones
