By BBN Staff: The National Evangelical Association of Belize (NEAB) issued a statement expressing their concern at the Appeals Court ruling last week upholding that “Sex in the Constitution is meant to include Sexual Orientation.”
NEAB says that one judge changed the meaning of Belize’s Constitution with the stroke of a pen, bypassing Parliamentary and Constitutional procedures.
“This will have disastrous ramifications for Belize. And what is the definition of Sexual Orientation? Whose definition? Pedophilia is currently claimed as a ‘sexual orientation’ by pedophiles, so now a ‘fluid, evolving’ definition will form the basis for nondiscrimination in our Constitution?” NEAB expressed.
In addition, the association and their member churches are vehemently opposed to “man’s efforts to redefine marriage and sexuality, which man did not create. God did.”
NEAB noted that as warned before in this battle, the LGBT now have a green light by the Court for same-sex marriage and to teach our children and grandchildren in schools that “homosexuality and transgenderism is normal and natural.”
The association is calling on Belizeans to wake up since the Government is quietly fast-tracking ‘Anti-Discrimination and Hate Speech legislation’ set for Public Consultation this month.
“For those who will mock God with ‘the sky is falling,’ we caution, after years of loving, patient warning by God and Noah, a ‘sky of rain’ did fall! No doubt, God will have the last word! He calls us all to repent and also promises ‘Fear not, I will help you…’ We remain with firm resolve for His help for strong Godly Family Values and a blessed Belize!” the association said.
NEAB is hosting a press conference today at 2:00 p.m. at the Remar facility, #5 Johnson St. in Belize City.
