Two U.S. Men Arrested on Gay Cruise in Carribbean
« on: March 22, 2012, 06:19:13 AM »
Two California men on a gay cruise of the Caribbean were arrested Wednesday in Dominica, where sex between two men is illegal.

Perhaps additional food for thought when discussing HIV nondisclosure criminal laws....hmmmmm......  which way shall we direct the pendulum to swing? Forward to the future... or back to the past?

Maybe that cruise line should have briefed the guests that they can't screw in public when they are in port.
I bet there are a number of countries where buggery is illegal and if I were a tour operator I would advise gay customers to at least be discrete.

They were arrested and charged with indecent exposure because they were having sex in public. They were not charge with "buggery". Yes, it is bad these repressive laws are on the books but this arrest doesn't seem particularly shocking given the other severe abuses that occur in other countries.

Maybe you should get your reading glasses checked. What Ford said was correct.

Police Constable John George said police boarded the cruise ship and arrested the two men on suspicion of indecent exposure and “buggery,” a term equivalent to sodomy on the island. He identified the men as John Robert Hart, 41, and Dennis Jay Mayer, 43, but did not provide their hometowns.

George said the men were seen having sex on the Celebrity Summit cruise ship by someone on the dock.

The two were later charged with indecent exposure and are scheduled to appear before a magistrate Thursday morning. If found guilty, they could be fined $370 each and face up to six months in jail.

And if you were to be caught in the open with one of your nasty twinks I'd take the prosecution's side.

The men's attorney, Bernadette Lambert, said they were remorseful.

"They were struck by the beautiful mountains, the clean and clear fresh air and were having a few cocktails, and so threw caution to the wind," she told the court.

Yairs. I'm sure remorse is just one of the emotions which seizes those who are dragged before the Dominican assizes.

from the comments section at The Dominican

Keep your dirty money away from the Caribbean.
Your gay, abortion, sexual orientation agenda and your attack on our Judeo Christian values is destroying your counry and ours in the Caribbean. Our values built the economies that give the money for you to conduct your indecent lifestyles which is not a RIGHT as you claim.
The US is falling daily as you indulge in your unnatural habits.
Do not bring us into your mess.


Bottom line, no one should have to view buggery; it sounds absolutley foul! Why would anyone want to put a bodily part in an excrement hole? P U!!


Today you can open your mouth wide. But when your gay self stand before God in judgement you will be destroyed....if you do not repent before then. I wonder how you would feel if you had an 8 year old son standing on the bay front watching two men......In the act of buggery.

and the best one:

when we signed the UN agreement re Gay Rights we sold out rights to the Gay community and said yes to Gay Cruises

How pathetic is it to actually live in one of the biggest gay resort cities in the US, then take a gay cruise for vacation? Is it to much to ask these rainblow flag waving freedom ring wearing queers to mix it up a bit and do something like a wine tasting tour in the Rías Baixas?

I'm much prettier and I have that receding hairline that all the guys go nuts over. 

The guys in the pic were just 2 years apart in age?  I would have said at least 10, but more like 15.  So, it was just the Gladys Kravitz's word against theirs?  No video surveillance for proof?  No ship personnel backing up the claim?  I would have just said the person was making it up, if there was no proof.  I doubt that would have done any good there, though.  Anti-gay nuts could do this with every gay ship that comes to port.  They apparently confessed, but who knows whether their lawyer said confessing would be easier than fighting it.  It would be interesting to know whether there were other people who backed up the person on the doc.  But, I'm not totally naive.  I'm sure they were getting it on with an audience.  Still, no other witnesses and I would have said the person was mistaken.

I'd go on a gay cruise if it was on a 40-60's ocean liner and everything had a bohemian vibe, with swamis, and jaded faded aging threadbare preppies and radical fairies and lesbian witches.

CLOSURE: pictars of the two men having public sex on their cruise ship balcony as a citizen of Dominica would see it. At least we now know which one was the top.

... like we're really supposed to feel any pity for them now. They had to have been tweaking. Like lots.

Maybe they are into public displays of sex, some folks are into that sorta thing, the whole thrill of it is to do it in public and see if anyone will see you , but the trick is NOT to get caught these queens got caught tho  ::)
