The good news: Beenie Man's act has been dropped from Couleur Café.

The bad news: The shrill homos did it! They discredited the pro-tolerance nature of our festival! He signed a contract! Well, if he's calling for my death in Uganda, I'm not sure what him not calling for my death in Brussels is supposed to accomplish. And the only persons discrediting your festival are you. I doubt your being "baffled by the size of the anti-Beenie Man campaign orchestrated by a few LGBT groups" is warranted; it shows a profound ignorance of what tolerance actually means. Hint: if it flakes off when you touch it, it's not real tolerance.

I in turn am baffled by the statement that the campaign has discredited Couleur Café, because "extremist points of view or attitudes have no place on or beside our stage." Doesn't the evidence absolutely contradict that? Are you organisers so hung up on the marketing of the festival that you don't care about the reality?
