Haitian Anti-Gay Marriage Protesters Kill Two Men, Threaten To Burn Down Parliament: VIDEO

Haiti Protest

Over 1,000 people in Haiti took their anti-gay animus to the streets to protest the proposed legalization of gay marriage, and some members of the protest even threatened to burn down parliament if gay marriage were to become legal. The protest was religious in nature, organized by groups like the Haitian Coalition of Religious and Moral Organizations, and resulted in the murders of two men presumed to be gay by the mob.

A short video taken from the protest can be seen AFTER THE JUMP...

Translation:

Q: If gay people continue to exercise their rights what are we going to do?

A: We'll kill them, we'll destroy them because we don't need that in our country. We don't want the question of gay people/homosexuals we want a man and a woman. Gay people will curse our country and we already have curses.

  3. This is no different from what Christians have been doing for the past 2000 years. Always the same.

  5. Scary. And Evil. Ignorance, misinformation, religious indoctrination. The reasons are many, but the result is the same----tragic hatred and scapegoating of innocent LGBT people. It has to stop.

  9. HAITI is the poorest, saddest, least educated "nation" in the Western Hemisphere. What a sad collection of humanity it is!!!

  11. What a sad, backward, illiterate and really hopeless "nation" is Haiti!!! Enjoy your ignorance Haitians!!! The rest of the Western Hemisphere is passing you by!!!

  12. Gee, didn't the French have massive anti-gay protests just a while ago? Didn't the Serbians have violent anti-gay protests that required the police to protect the gay pride participants from being killed?

    Hey, let's just pretend that violent anti-gay loonies only exist in Haiti and not around the world.

  13. Painfully stupid comments on this post. How are citizens carrying out a hate crime in response to the government considering furthering equality grounds for ceasing aid? That happens in every country on the planet, and dooming countless gay Haitians to death by exposure/starvation/disease is obviously the stupidest response possible to these disgusting actions. Thank God none of you are in positions of power.

    Anyways, this is horrifying and it's so scary to be reminded of religion's sick hold on the poor and uneducated. I'd bet that one or both of the men they murdered weren't even gay.

  14. The ironic part is:

    Almost half of those men have most likely been sexually active with another man on the "down-low".

    It's homophobia based on stereotyping, religious superstition and basic primitive hate - of themselves.

  15. Haiti's gonna hate. We don't need any haitian homophobes in the USA.

  16. @MARSHALL: IF you are comparing Haiti with any advanced nation in the world, you are pretending to be serious. Haiti is a pathetic excuse for a nation. If that offends your sense of political correctness: Too Bad!!! It is what it is!!!

  17. You can always tell the regular black posters on gay websites because they never comment to condemn anti-gay bigotry from black people. Little Kiwi, Derrick from Philly and Chitownkev are nowhere to be found. Having white gay people condemn these people won't change them, they will simply discount what is said because the person is white and gay. Black gay people need to pushback against anti-gay bigotry from black heterosexuals because that is the only way things will get better.

  18. @marshall. I don't see anyone pretending anything. i think we all know this global anti gay backlash is just getting started, it's gonna be ugly across the world for us, sadly

  19. Radical religion, jingoism, and persecution of minorities are all linked to economic deprivation and inequality.

    The more we strive to be inclusive of the definition of "us", the more we can design policies that lift up everyone. The more we frame an issue as "that's them, forget them", the longer these diseases fester and spread.

    Just as Republicans here in the U.S. have trouble understanding that brown and black people are also Americans, many of us here are having a hard time understanding that even these totally ignorant and ridiculous Haitians are also people and citizens of our world.

    Isolating them isn't a great solution. Yes, it feels terrible that "your" money is going towards aid towards people who you disagree with, but ultimately, connecting with and lifting up people is what will improve them. And yes, you do want them to improve, because the sea isn't going to swallow them.

  20. @Adam: As usual you take every opportunity to criticize Obama. Whatever support we are sending to the destitute in Haiti to feed the starving etc, it is less than the cost of one of the scores of Navy DDG's and CG's and Carriers we have sailing around the world.

  21. Let's question what role the American Christianists are playing in stoking this stuff up. They're fingers are all over Uganda and other African countries, so it wouldn't surprise me that they're also involved here in preaching the gospel of hate.

  22. @Albert, this event was larger than 1000 people, a large multi-religious event/protest/celebration included muslim support. It was joined by outside religious groups, connected to charity aid groups, who are also religious and who probably oppose homosexuality, but not directly but through charity-based sponsorship of youth groups and such.

  23. What was I saying not even a week ago about Caribbean countries (Haiti, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic) and their being so virulently homophobic to the point of violence....thank you for confirming it, Haiti. I will never vacation to you, or give you my money in any capacity.

  24. Haitians would be better off protesting against the slavery in their country. Not to mention extreme poverty.

    Posted by: Keith | Jul 23, 2013 1:47:55 AM


  25. How can people there still believe in God after the earthquake and constant poverty and hunger?
