Damian Marley on 'reg-anti-gay' sentiment

by Jeremy Hooper

   According to our source non-identifying friends at ContactMusic.com, Damian Marley (son of Bob) is defending reggae songs that advocate "burning gays," saying the lyrics imply a metaphorical/spiritual burning, not a physical one. Marley's quoted as saying:

"The churches all speak against homosexuality. But you don't walk around Jamaica and see homosexuals hanging from the lampposts. It's a spiritual burning."

OHHHHH - so burning for all of eternity in the fiery depths of hell, you mean? Why didn't someone clarify this earlier? Burn away, Jamaican friends.

In a related reggae-centric misinterpretation, we have learned that when some of the artists talk about smoking weed, they don't mean to imply getting high, but rather getting ass-crazy, super-duper, 'I can't feel my hands and I'm okay with that' high.
