Despite attack on gay men, St. Lucia not homophobic
Re: “Gay Atlanta men attacked in St. Lucia hate crime” (March 6 and March 18)
As a St Lucian I know that anti-gay bias is not the sentiment of the whole island. Most people on the island are grew up in the Catholic Church and we all know about anti-gay preaching all over the world. It is not the teachings of “Black preachers” as someone mentioned... I grew up in a church lead by white American/Canadian priests. The attack was based on the ignorance of a few men. I am very sorry about what happened to the men because no one should have to go through an attack like that while on vacation. That is not the St Lucia I remember, it truly is paradise. Just want everyone reading this to know that the men who attacked the tourists were ignorant and do not represent the entire population.
