I think a lot of people are irate at the audacity of two gay Vincentians filing a case, because decriminalising homosexuality in St. Vincent and the Grenadines takes away their legitimate right to despise and shame their LGBT neighbours.
LGBT citizens in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and most of the Caribbean have long been a reliable target for displaced anger (created by and encouraged by the church) and people don’t want this entitlement struck down because they don’t have the tools to face the truths of their own existence.
So, they march.
