Gay Advocacy Groups Accused Of Hypocrisy

 NEW YORK - As reported in the Jamaican Gleaner (Article "Jailed Abroad"), conspiracy theorists were suggesting that the homosexual community was behind the recent conviction of reggae star Buju Banton on drug charges. Now with both GLAAD and OutRage taking credit for the cancellation of numerous reggae shows as reported on their respective websites, some are starting to question if they are actually the villains. On his brand new mixtape, Boom Viniyard gives his opinion on the issue and what he believes is blatant hypocrisy within the gay community.


Riding on the success of his hit single “Caribbean Girls”, reggae star Boom Viniyard has released a mixtape that is creating a lot of controversy. While the mixtape is very diverse with party songs, songs with strong messages and social commentaries, it is actually an excerpt of an interview the star did with the Jamaican Gleaner that is causing quite a stir.

When asked by the Jamaican Gleaner what he thought about artists like Sizzla and Beenie Man being banned from performing in the United Kingdom as well as being denied entry into the United States as reported by the Gleaner, the artist responded:

“Not only is it hypocritical but it's also wrong to ban songs and suppress artists for the condemnation of homosexuality, if so be the case the republican party of the USA should also be banned and suppressed. They are openly anti gay which is a fundamental principle of conservatism. Also the Bible should be banned and suppress right along with all Christian churches and Christian nations because the Bible, both in the old and new testaments condemns homosexuality. So if you are banning songs and suppressing artists, why is the Bible, Christian churches and Christian nations allowed to operate without restrictions. Maximum respect to Shabba Ranks, Sizzla Kalonji and Buju Banton.” The full interview can be heard on Boom Viniyard’s new mixtape on a track called “Homosexual Hypocrisy”. 

Boom Viniyard went on to tell the Jamaican Gleaner that "I am willing to debate with GLAAD, OutRage or any other gay organization on the harsh stance they take in the stifling of reggae music and reggae artists".
