Ricky Martin, set to perform in the Honduras on October 16 in the Chochi Sosa stadium in Tegucigalpa. However, if certain religious leaders get their way, he won't be in the country at all!!
Why? Because he's an openly gay father and if they let him in he's just gonna spread his icky gay to the youth of Honduras, of course!
Africo Madrid, the Honduras Minister of Interior, is claiming that Evangelical and Catholic leaders are asking him to deny a visa to Martin in order to “protect the moral and ethical principles of our society.”
Madrid says the religious heads of the country think that,
"His nuclear family is not the type of family that Honduran society, and laws, approve of."
Yes, and if they don't see him preform live, he isn't real.
Despite the Minister's comments, sources from the Honduran secretary of state's office say that they have NOT received any written petitions to deny Ricky Martin entry into the country.
However, it's likely that the government is trying to refrain from making a scandal.
