Let’s juxtapose the fact that some here in Jamaica are cheering for the fact that the mass shooting occurred in a gay club with the fact that many here in Jamaica are up in arms with the SDA administrators of Andrew’s Memorial Hospital for stating that they will take disciplinary action, including and up to firing staff who are guilty of fornication and adultery.
