There are people who oppose same sex marriage and choose compare it to everything that is imaginable. They make arguments comparing it to paedophilia, inter-specie marriage, group marriage and even self marriage. Popular anti-gay activist Doreen West, wife of anti-gay activist Wayne West, did that right here in this letter to the editor :http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/letters/Making-a-mockery-of-marriage-_11559962
Isn’t it only fair that AGFC also gets the chance to compare? Well of course, anti-gay activists can’t be the only ones to have a little fun.
For nearly 20 years, anti-gay American Christian fundamentalists have been pushing the notion that there is a secret “homosexual agenda” that is run by a worldwide central authority that instructs “militant homosexual activists” on how to “destroy the family” and “brainwash people into accepting homosexual behaviour as normal”.
Well, AGFC has been aware for quite sometime of three documents they claim proves this so-called “hidden agenda”. LGBT advocates need to be aware of these as though it might sound silly there are many anti-gay activists in Jamaica who use these documents to push this conspiracy theory as they actually believe they are central and important to the LGBT movement.
Below is a demonstration of how to explain the issue of same-sex marriage in much simpler terms to some people anti-gay people who might not be very smart. We understand that after reading this many will still not understand however. AGFC tries its best.

Popular anti-gay activist Shirley Richards decides to appear in a documentary made by a coalition called “Stand for Families Worldwide” which claims it exists to “expose the cultural imperialism pushed by the United Nations and by Western countries—especially the United States—and stop them from pushing a destructive sexual rights agenda on families and children worldwide“.
On their website they claim that criminalising homosexuality is a tool to help to control the spread of HIV/AIDS.
Of course, in the anti-gay religious world, religion trumps science.
Rev. Dr. Clinton Chisholm who is a lecturer at the Jamaica Theological Seminary quotes some studies to denounce the “ex-gay” therapy ban in California for minors in an effort to sound smart.
As usual, we at AGFC are ahead of the game and we know when the anti-gay movement/”ex-gay” mythologists not only tell lies but have no clue what they themselves are even talking about.
