We have been coming to your beautiful island for 20 years and have appreciated the beauty, friendliness, lack of crime and its religious side.
We are not homophobic and have a few gay friends. However, we are disappointed to see a seminar advertised to enlighten people on the gay lifestyle and to accept gays. Is that really necessary? There are very few people who do not accept gays, even though they do not approve necessarily of their lifestyle. Then there was an picture ad by the AIDS Foundation group in your paper on Jan. 22 that we found very offensive.
We have no objection to gays living or vacationing on your island, but if it is going to become predominantly gay then we do have an objection. Are you trying to promote gays to come and/or reside here? Why are you not promoting the heterosexual lifestyle and/or a religious-based lifestyle and instead focusing on the gays? What kind of an island do you want? It is not going in the direction that we think is healthy or desirable. Nor is it an island we will want to continue coming to, if that is the case.
We are sure the majority of people feel the same way. Please respond to our concerns.
