Breaking News: Grenada Reject Legalization Of Homosexuality Bill et al

The tiny West Indian Island of voters numbering some 70, 000, renown for their spice like nutmeg have shut out any possible spice from their personal lives by rejecting the 7 items onblock.  The spice island has had a colourful history having murdered their former Prime Minister Maurice Bishop and was invaded by the United States of America.


Seven Bills were on the slate for the voters to consider. Reports are that the voter turn out was only about 30 percent.

Among the issues rejected was for the Caribbean Court Of Justice (CCJ) to replace the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council as their final Appellate Court.

Same Sex Marriage

To each their own.  We do not condemn anyone nor make judgment calls.  We just state the facts as we see them.

Our constitution grants equal rights to all.  It is the law of the lands. Plain and simple. We respect same.
