I had never seen such arrogant behaviour on any church grounds before. I was sitting in church when an uproar outside caught my attention. Of course, like the sun, this Gossip Chica rose into action.
"Shut up yuh mouth, mi nah talk to yuh! Because nobody nah say nutten yuh feel say yuh cya come yah wid yuh behaviour. People a take up fi him. Gwan through di gate, and yuh cya come back inyah nyda," came from a big man that had taken part in the service earlier.
He was addressing what was described as a 'gay-like' boy that was in service also, his effeminate actions had reactions with raised eyebrows. Mark was one of those inner-city boys whose behaviour depicted a real 'ghetto sketel gal' according to one witness. He didn't act like the normal teenage boy. His body language spoke as loud as the words that came from his mouth. His little brother, who apparently thinks he is a role model, acts the same way, too. Mark's excuse for his behaviour is just that he loves drama and he grew up with girls, so he acts like that, but he isn't gay. Sad this is a strong belief by many that effeminacy in males is a rub off from from socialization with girls for extended periods which also explains interest sexually in men.
Upset man with anti gay attitudes
Anyway, back to the drama..."This a God house. Yuh come a God chuch, and God say to repent. The alter deh here fi everybody fi repent and start over fresh. Look pon him. Look pon him likkle bredda. Look how dem act. And people still accept them, that's why them can come een and do anything them want," the upset man continued.
A woman minister chimed in: "A true. Some order need to set!"
The man continued, "Di nastiness fi cut out, so mi a talk today, and anybody nuh wah say nutten, that a fi dem business. Anybody weh wah say mi and dem involve in a anyway, step forward. Nuhbody can't call my name. Mi love people. Mi nuh deal with b...man!" (He does not deal with battyman or gay men)
"It nuh sound good, uncle. If a did me a talk and a gwan so, yuh would tell me to stop it," another woman pleaded.
"So wah yuh a tek mi aan fah? Yah tek up fi dem?" he questioned.
"Mi nah tek yuh on, uncle, but mi a tell yuh say you at church, and it doh sound good," she said.
Mark, in his defence, claimed the man called him after church to speak with him. Apparently, the man couldn't wait, and pulled him by his shirt and put him in a corner. He said the man asked him why he was speaking about him and pushed him. He said he retaliated with the same action.
"My madda dead when mi a likkle bwoy, so she nah lick mi. My fada cya lick mi cause mi wi go police station. Him lick mi one time, and mi just cut miself (he showed a scar on his arm) and go tell police say him cut mi. Him bright. Him cya lick him pickney dem," he said.
"Bout him waah come lick. Him push mi and mi push him back. The church big and empty and him a go tell me nuh come back a him church, with him big shine head?! Try nuh ina no argument with mi," he continued, hissing his teeth and and rolling his eyes. The speech being delivered while swaying his body left to right and standing on the inside of his feet. Lmao.
My two cents bout all of it ... In my best preacher voice: "And the Bible said ... Come just as you are ... Ye that is without sin let him cast the first stone ... Judge not that ye might not be judged!"
Walk good. Live well! Bless up unuh self!
