  1. Too many individuals are pushing this LGBTQ agenda to recruit and confuse young people. People were assigned a sex at birth, with very few exceptions. Where did all these mixed up people come from all of a sudden? This is result of a bunch of mixed up people trying to convince the world that what is wrong is right. We will soon have a situation in Antigua where boys will demand to play in girls sports like they have in the USA.
    I have nothing against gay people, just their lifestyle which they are free to practice as long as they don’t try to force it down the throats of other people.
