LONDON, Jan 8, 2001 ( – The British government has followed through with their threat to force the legalization of homosexuality on its Caribbean territories after having cajoled the Islands’ legislators unsuccessfully. The Islands have devout Christian populations and their leaders have thus refused to cave in to the foreign pressure but the British government decided to exert its imperial power over the Islands with an order from the British Privy Council decriminalizing homosexual acts. Nando Times reports that the order takes effect this week and applies to Anguilla, the Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands, Montserrat and the Turks and Caicos.

Responding to the order, Rev. Nicholas Sykes, chief pastor of the Church of England in the Cayman Islands said Friday, “This is totally unacceptable to the minds of the Christian community here.”
