Betty Ann Blaine Deliberately Conflates Same Gender Attraction & Child Abuse at Christian Anti Gay Mass Rally & in Public Advocacy


Has anyone noticed that these old child rights activists do not take the time to explain to the public when they do speak on child sexual abuse in particular what is actually paedophilia and that the gender of the victim is not important but the harm done but instead they are more emotional and alarmist about the issue than measured and strategic in assessing and understanding the situation while noting the profile of offenders and the psychology behind same (not that it does not warrant some alarm as the abuse cases lately are frightening) but one would have thought that someone like a Betty Ann Blaine with her “decades of experience” would know better.

Boy was I wrong but I shouldn’t be surprised as she has done it before: 
Betty Ann Blaine on Poverty, children and the Buggery Law .... and that awful confusion of homosexuality with paedophilia 2012

To accuse the Jamaican gay advocacy structure collectively as dishonest aided by some foreign powers and that we are on some imperialistic agenda to foist the so called “homosexual agenda” on the nation (while using children as the intended target) with little or no evidence is one thing, then to lie on television as Miss Betty did on the controversial Jamaicans for Justice (CVCC funded) controversial sex education course where it had references to anal sex but was misrepresented as to say anal sex is permissible without even able to locate the offending page(s) or sections while just glibly relying on a newspaper sensational report is another matter; She was not able to actually speak to pages 122, 124/5 of the manual that mentioned buggery but also spoke to the illegality of the act and grievous sexual assault that were explained therein.

Now comes the latest repeat episode by the convenor of Hear the Children’s Cry outfit where she conflates same gender attraction with child abuse of which the latter no one denies and even disturbs gay rights activists as well. This strategy has been used by the Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship, LCF and their protégés the Jamaica Coalition for a Healthy Society, JCHS at first in the early days it seems as sheer or real ignorance or a mistake but the repeated use of the conflation is clearly deliberate so as to whip up moral panic and hysterical support as evidenced on Sunday June 29th in Half Way Tree Square. Sensible and well thinking persons and advocates do not seek to fan the flames of hysteria and paranoia and fear in society while driving divisiveness in the name of God at that as the smoke from such flames only seek to create cloud cover for real abusers who continue to abuse or prepare via sexual grooming their victims. This noise is only a sideshow that preoccupies the time of the public and the vigilance is misdirected to places where there may be no such abuse in occurrence. Case in point three pastors accused of sexual abuse in recent days with the last known reported case carried in the Star news last week, Pastor Daniel Findlay, charged under the Sexual Offenses Act with three counts of sexual assault with a person under 16 years and one count of grievous sexual assault, was told his case will be tried soon.

Findlay, 36, from Lower York in St Thomas, appeared in the Morant Bay Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday. His lawyer was absent and so was the complainant. After exploring the possibility of sending a taxi for the complainant, the magistrate advised the accused to make his attorney aware of the next court date.

"Your case will start soon, as the complainant is not here. You should return to court on August 7," the magistrate advised. She also told the mother of the child to ensure that her daughter is present at the next hearing.

Findlay's bail conditions of $250,000 with stringent measure remains. The bail conditions include two sureties, reporting to the police six times each week and residing with his father. The accused has also been ordered to have no contact with persons under the age of 16 years old.

Finday was identified as a person of interest by the Morant Bay police earlier this year, and was picked up in Kingston after he made arrangement with the police to hand himself in.

ENDS

At Sunday’s mass rally by Jamaica CAUSE whose main goals are to block any coverage under the Charter of Rights protection from discrimination due to sexual orientation, reparative therapy for homosexuals and the retention of the old 1533 English designed buggery law that we retained via the savings law clause post our independence in 1962 where all laws prior to are kept, it is clear the theocratic agenda that lays before us; Betty Ann Blaine among other things proceeded to whip the crowd in a frenzy by saying the following:

“.... now let me tell you something we not gonna allow people with a different agenda from the majority of us in this country to corrupt or children, we not goin’ let them mis-educate our children; we not goin’ let them misinform our children so parents and family members I want to tell them that this is the time to step up to the plate as parents .................... now let me just say something ‘bout the buggery law; there is no way we changing the buggery law; not when so many children are being buggered in Jamaica; do you know Jamaica that the buggery of children in this country has increased by 72% and I want you to know I personally Betty Ann Blaine went to the funeral of the nine month baby who was buggered and murdered and folks are telling us to changes the law; let me tell you something it is now time for the church to stand up.”

Clearly the inference is being made that adult gays who for the most part have no sexual interest in kids deliberately attack or sexually abuse tots & children and it is indeed sad when such cases do come to the public’s glare but paedophilia is worlds apart from innate homosexual attraction to other adults. It seems the mis-education here is on Ms Betty’s part or indeed deception for that matter. Paedophilia has to do with adults who are sexually aroused by prepubescent persons which is a diagnosable disorder under the guidelines of the diagnostic statistical manual for the requisite experts via pharmacological courses and or specially prescribed drugs and as in other jurisdiction state monitored isolation and prison time. The sexual orientation of paedophiles is unimportant but the problematic sexual attraction to children that is of greater import. Ms Blaine’s self professed thirty years in the NGO community and seeing repeated cases of abuse sadly ought to by now know the major difference in the profile of those perpetrators who are sometimes heterosexuals even when they commit same sexed paedophilia and who are even in the church that is silent when one of their own is exposed.

This strategy only seeks to embed homophobia in the minds of the masses while making us more polarised and as JFLAG’s Executive Director Dane Lewis said in a Nationwide interview as to induce “moral panic” which I agree (strange eh?). Sadly as usual the public advocacy moment was not used properly as he failed to use the opportunity to explain the change in their stance on the buggery law to decriminalization instead of a full repeal and to include rape and coverage for abuse of children. Jamaica CAUSE smarting from the meeting yesterday is now implying motive of some kind as to why there was an unidentified drone in the air while the rally was in progress, speaking on Beyond The Headlines President of the Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship Helen Coley Nicholson claimed that the drone was spotted and many persons in the CAUSE group are wondering who was using such equipment? The typical victim ploy again being also used here while inflating the numbers of persons who were estimated to be at the rally yesterday.

Another disturbing and disparaging remark made by Ms Nicholson had the host of the show Dionne Jackson Miller do a double take to ask her to properly explain her remark, “I saw civil society rise for the first time in my life in this country, I saw the real Jamaican civil society.....” she was interrupted by Ms Miller who asked her to explain Ms Nicholson danced around the issue as an obvious dig at the other civil society groups.

Would Jesus discriminate or cause more outcasts?

So it seems our fundamentalists friends have their own deceptive and fear-mongering strategies to whip up a crowd that laps up the vomit and simply regurgitates it without question or scrutiny. The game is set and the pieces are going into place let us see where it goes from here.


meanwhile

Peter Espeut, Columnist and Catholic anti gay voice has weighed in on the rally it seems these folks are smarting over their crowd riling episode on Sunday last, he wrote in the Gleaner today:

Last Sunday, elements of the Church staged a demonstration in Half-Way Tree Square against the repeal of Jamaica's buggery laws, and the Jamaica Forum for Lesbians, All-Sexuals and Gays (J-FLAG) has reacted by stating that it is not daunted by the massive turnout.

Of course, I do not believe for a minute that the Church was trying to daunt J-FLAG; the Church was taking aim at crowd-shy politicians.

Both the People's National Party and the Jamaica Labour Party know what it means to have to rent a crowd to create an impression, and how much they have to dish out in terms of beer, curry goat and 'dallahs'. Last Sunday, the Church was able to assemble a large crowd without having to hardly spend a cent; most of the thousands paid their own way to Half-Way Tree. This is what is likely to have made the greatest impression on the political class.

One of the goals of the LGBT lobby is to normalise buggery in Jamaica, and they are working two strategies at the same time. Just before the last general election, they prevailed upon Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller to call for a review of the sections of the Offences against the Person Act referred to as the buggery laws, which may lead to a conscience vote in Parliament.

In addition, they have brought a constitutional motion in the Supreme Court in an effort to decriminalise anal sex. The constitutional motion may fail because of a weak case; in any case, the judges are likely to rule that such a major legal shift is best done in the Parliament rather than in the courts.

The massive demonstration on Sunday last is the sort of language politicians understand, and is likely to affect the direction in which their consciences will drive them.
Peace and tolerance needed indeed.

Espeut, West says “Homophobia” was invented to abuse Christians as hate speech


Betty Ann Blaine & foreign religious zealots continue their paranoia & misrepresentations of male homosexuality



meanwhile there is descent within the PNP on the matter

PNP MPs now also conflating the sex ed course issue, age appropriateness and homosexuality when page 125 of the sex ed course was clear as to the illegality of buggery yet all who are up in arms seem to ignore that fact

More divisiveness and polarization from the Christian community or sections of it of all places. Should we be surprised history is replete with this kind of ecclesiastical madness before where persons lost their heads for a simple disagreement.

After catching midway a radio discussion on the subject of Jamaica being labelled as homophobic I did a quick look at the long held belief in Jamaica by anti gay advocates, sections of media and homophobes that several murders of alleged gay victims are in fact 'crimes of passion' or have jealousy as their motives but it is not as simple or generalized as that.

Aphrodite’s PRIDE JA tackles gender identity, transgender misconceptions .....



Nationwide New Network, NNN devoted some forty five minutes of prime time yesterday evening to discuss the issue and help listeners to at least begin to process some of the information coming from the most public declaration exercise as done by Jenner. Guests on the show were Dr Karen Carpenter Board Certified Clinical Sexologist and Psychologist, ‘Satiba’ from Aphrodite’s P.R.I.D.E Jamaica of which I am affiliated and Lecturer (Sociologist) and host of Every Woman on the station Georgette Crawford Williams (sister of PNP member of parliament Damian Crawford); one of the first questions thrown at Satiba by host Cliff Hughes was why has Jenna waited so long at 65 years old to make such a life changing decision?

Satiba responded that many transwomen have to hide their true identity in life .... given her life when she was younger she was a star athlete she would have been under tremendous precious to stay in from the expectations by the public and her team etc, also owing to the fact that she had a family as a man with children one may not want to upset the flow at that time until the kids are old enough. There is a lot of burden of guilt that some persons carry in weighing the decisions of coming out or transitioning so suppression of one’s true self is the modus operandi.

Dr Carpenter cautioned after a heated exchange:

“We really must remember as professionals we must stay in our lane I will never pronounce as a Sociologist cause I am not a Sociologist ............When we have an opportunity to speak publicly we must be careful of what we say unless it is extremely well informed......”

Dr Shelly Ann Weeks on Homophobia - What are we afraid of?


Former host of Dr Sexy Live on Nationwide radio and Sexologist tackles in a simplistic but to the point style homophobia and asks the poignant question of the age, What really are we as a nation afraid of?


It seems like homosexuality is on everyone's tongue. From articles in the newspapers to countless news stories and commentaries, it seems like everyone is talking about the gays. Since Jamaica identifies as a Christian nation, the obvious thought about homosexuality is that it is wrong but only male homosexuality seems to influence the more passionate responses. It seems we are more open to accepting lesbianism but gay men are greeted with much disapproval.

Dancehall has certainly been very clear where it stands when it comes to this issue with various songs voicing clear condemnation of this lifestyle. Currently, quite a few artistes are facing continuous protests because of their anti-gay lyrics. Even the law makers are involved in the gayness as there have been several calls for the repeal of the buggery law. Recently Parliament announced plans to review the Sexual Offences Act which, I am sure, will no doubt address homosexuality.

Jamaica has been described as a homophobic nation. The question I want to ask is: What are we afraid of? There are usually many reasons why homosexuality is such a pain in the a@. Here are some of the more popular arguments MORE HERE

Promised conscience vote was a fluke from the PNP ........



SO WE WERE DUPED EH? - the suggestion of a conscience vote on the buggery law as espoused by Prime Minister (then opposition leader) in the 2011 leadership debate preceding the last national elections was a dangling carrot for a dumb donkey to follow.

Many advocates and individuals interpreted Mrs Simpson Miller's pronouncements as a promise or a commitment to repeal or at least look at the archaic buggery law but I and a few others who spoke openly dismissed it all from day one as nothing more than hot air especially soon after in February member of parliament Damian Crawford poured cold water on the suggestion/promise and said it was not a priority as that time. and who seems to always open his mouth these days and revealing his thoughts that sometimes go against the administration's path.

I knew from then that as existed before even under the previous PM P. J. Patterson (often thought to be gay by the public) also danced around the issue as this could mean votes and loss of political power. Mrs Simpson Miller in the meantime was awarded a political consultants' democracy medal as their conference concludes in Antigua.

War of words between pro & anti gay activists on HIV matters .......... what hypocrisy is this?

A war of words has ensued between gay lawyer (AIDSFREEWORLD) Maurice Tomlinson and anti gay activist Dr Wayne West (supposed in-laws of sorts) as both accuse each other of lying or being dishonest, when deception has been neatly employed every now and again by all concerned, here is the post from Dr West's blog

This is laughable to me in a sense as both gentleman have broken the ethical lines of advocacy respectively repeatedly especially on HIV/AIDS and on legal matters concerning LGBTQ issues

The evidence is overwhelming readers/listeners, you decide.


Fast forward 2015 and the exchanges continue in a post from Dr Wayne West: Maurice Tomlinson misrepresents my position on his face book page and Blog 76Crimes

Calls for Tourism Boycotts are Nonsensical at This Time





(2014 protests New York)

Calling for boycotts by overseas based Jamaican advocates who for the most part are not in touch with our present realities in a real way and do not understand the implications of such calls can only seek to make matters worse than assisting in the struggle, we must learn from, the present economic climate of austerity & tense calm makes it even more sensible that persons be cautious, will these groups assist when there is fallout?, previous experiences from such calls made in 2008 and 2009 and the near diplomatic nightmare that missed us; especially owing to the fact that many of the victims used in the public advocacy of violence were not actual homophobic cases which just makes the ethics of advocacy far less credible than it ought to be.

a 2009 Word focus report where the history of the major explosion of homeless MSM occurred and references to the party DVD that was leaked to the bootleg market which exposed many unsuspecting patrons to the public (3:59), also the caustic remarks made by former member of Parliament in the then JLP administration.

The agencies at the time were also highlighted and the homo negative and homophobic violence met by ordinary Jamaican same gender loving men.

The late founder of the CVC, former ED of JASL and JFLAG Dr. Robert Carr was also interviewed.

What to do if you are attacked (News You Can Use)


First, be calm: Do not panic; it may be very difficult to maintain composure if attacked but this is important.

Try to reason with the attacker: Establish communication with the person. This takes a lot of courage. However, a conversation may change the intention of an attacker.

Do not try anything foolish: If you know outmaneuvering the attacker is impossible, do not try it.

Do not appear to be afraid: Look the attacker in the eye and demonstrate that you are not fearful.

This may have a psychological effect on the individual.

Emergency numbers

The police 119

Kingfish 811

Crime Stop 311

Steps to Take When Contronted or Arrested by Police


a) Ask to see a lawyer or Duty Council

b) Only give name and address and no other information until a lawyer is present to assist

c) Try to be polite even if the scenario is tensed) Don’t do anything to aggravate the situation

e) Every complaint lodged at a police station should be filed and a receipt produced, this is not a legal requirement but an administrative one for the police to track reports

f) Never sign to a statement other than the one produced by you in the presence of the officer(s)

g) Try to capture a recording of the exchange or incident or call someone so they can hear what occurs, place on speed dial important numbers or text someone as soon as possible

h) File a civil suit if you feel your rights have been violated. When making a statement to the police have all or most of the facts and details together for e.g. "a car" vs. "the car" represents two different descriptions

j) Avoid having the police writing the statement on your behalf except incases of injuries, make sure what you want to say is recorded carefully, ask for a copy if it means that you have to return for it

What to do


a. Make a phone call: to a lawyer or relative or anyone

b. Ask to see a lawyer immediately: if you don’t have the money ask for a Duty Council

c. A Duty Council is a lawyer provided by the state

d. Talk to a lawyer before you talk to the police

e. Tell your lawyer if anyone hits you and identify who did so by name and number

f. Give no explanations excuses or stories: you can make your defense later in court based on what you and your lawyer decided

g. Ask the sub officer in charge of the station to grant bail once you are charged with an offence

h. Ask to be taken before a justice of The Peace immediately if the sub officer refuses you bail

i. Demand to be brought before a Resident Magistrate and have your lawyer ask the judge for bail

j. Ask that any property taken from you be listed and sealed in your presence

Cases of Assault:An assault is an apprehension that someone is about to hit you

The following may apply:

1) Call 119 or go to the station or the police arrives depending on the severity of the injuries

2) The report must be about the incident as it happened, once the report is admitted as evidence it becomes the basis for the trial

3) Critical evidence must be gathered as to the injuries received which may include a Doctor’s report of the injuries.

4) The description must be clearly stated; describing injuries directly and identifying them clearly, show the doctor the injuries clearly upon the visit it must be able to stand up under cross examination in court.

5) Misguided evidence threatens the credibility of the witness during a trial; avoid the questioning of the witnesses credibility, the tribunal of fact must be able to rely on the witness’s word in presenting evidence

6) The court is guided by credible evidence on which it will make it’s finding of facts

7) Bolster the credibility of a case by a report from an independent disinterested party.

VACANT AT LAST! SHOEMAKERGULLY: DISPLACED MSM/TRANS PERSONS WERE IS CLEARED DECEMBER 2014





CVM TV carried a raid and subsequent temporary blockade exercise of the Shoemaker Gully in the New Kingston district as the authorities respond to the bad eggs in the group of homeless/displaced or idling MSM/Trans persons who loiter there for years.

Question is what will happen to the population now as they struggle for a roof over their heads and food etc. The Superintendent who proposed a shelter idea (that seemingly has been ignored by JFLAG et al) was the one who led the raid/eviction.
