The Jamaican Cinematograph Authority was expected to decide Tuesday (Feb. 21) whether it will allow “Brokeback Mountain” to be played in theaters throughout the country. 
The critically-acclaimed love story between two cowboys played by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal is scheduled to premiere today at a single theater in the Kingston suburb of Liguanea. But its screening on the island has been opposed by the country’s clergy. 

“We don’t want people to support the showing of this movie here because it would send the wrong message to the public,” an official of the Fellowship Tabernacle in Kingston, told the Jamaican Observer. 

Elder Allan Russell at the Emmanuel Apostolic Church said that the film represented an effort by Hollywood to “indoctrinate the world to a most sinful act” and warned that it should be barred “before any further damage can be done to the minds of our people.”
