    I wonder if the Governor was asked what he thought of Minister “Got titty” Caines video during he recent trip to the UK?

  3. Same Love says:

    It is abundantly clear in the Bernews interview with Governor John Rankin that the Governor appears to personally support Same-Sex Marriage.
    (I have always known this to be true)
    John Rankin has always been true to his duty as Governor. Indeed Rankin has had to straddle the fence in regards to his personal beliefs and those duties he must perform as Governor.

    Rankin has done an admirable job. That cannot be said of the Premier of Bermuda who has failed the #LGBTQ community by NOT accepting the recent ruling of the Chief Justice of Bermuda that in effect says that the Domestic Partnership Legislation contravened the Bermuda Constitution.

    The matter is “Before the courts”…… and we must hope that justice prevails and that the rights of all people are respected. #LoveWins #LGBTQ
