Home of the Brave but apparently not land of the free
I note the comments of Philip “Brave" Davis, the Prime Minister of the Bahamas, as reported in yesterday's Royal Gazette (October 21, 2022). He states that ”there’s a universal right for a person to determine his or her own destiny both individually and collectively, not influenced by any outside influences. There are some mental and sociological issues that can arise when one is not free“.
According to Wikipedia, “Same-sex marriages and civil unions are not legal in the Bahamas...the Bahamas Marriage Act states that a Bahamian marriage is composed of a man and woman.” So I suppose I can infer from that that Bahamians wishing to enter into a same-sex marriage are not “persons” — at least not according to Mr Davis — who can partake of this universal right to determine their own destiny?
