MiriDom hails Belize gay ruling; advocates similar cause in Dominica

miridomLocal group Minority Rights Dominica (MiriDom) has expressed satisfaction over a landmark court ruling in Belize which struck down an anti-gay law, saying it has been advocating for a similar cause in Dominica.

MiriDom has been insisting that Section 16 of the Sexual Offences Act of Dominica impedes the sexual expression of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) citizens of Dominica.

This week the Supreme Court in Belize struck down Section 53, an anti-sodomy law, from the country’s criminal code saying it is unconstitutional.

Section 53 criminalizes consenting intercourse between adults of the same sex but the court ruled that it violates human dignity, the right to privacy, the right to freedom from discrimination, freedom of expression and the equal protection of the law.

On Thursday, MiriDom said it is pleased with the ruling.

“MiRiDom has been advocating for a similar cause in Dominica where Section 16 of the Sexual Offences Act impedes on the sexual expression of the LGBT citizens of Dominica,” the group said in a statement.

According to Section 16 of the Sexual Offences Act of Dominica, anyone who commits buggery is guilty of an offence and can be imprisoned for up to 25 years and subjected to psychiatric treatment. The section defines buggery as anal sex between a male person and another male person or a male person and female person (see section of the Act below).

MiriDom said that now the Belize ruling has set a precedent, “we hope that the Government of Dominica will take a more serious look at Section 16 through a Human Rights Commission, as prescribed by the United Nations, with the mandate to look at the laws of the country that are against the Human Rights of citizens. This will allow every one to have equal rights under the law.”

The group added, “Other Caribbean Human Rights groups in the former British Colonies are also elated by the judgment, and look forward to having the laws in their countries amended to ensure equal rights of sexual expression by consenting adults.”

The LGBT and the same-sex marriage movement in Dominica is facing an uphill battle.

In 2014 Dominica’s Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has made it clear that same-sex marriages will not be accepted by his government, pointing out that “certain guiding principles” must be followed in that matter.

“I will make it clear that there is some things that this government will not accept and we will never allow for the state to recognize same sex marriage in our country,” he said. “If other countries want to do it, that’s a matter for them but there are certain guiding principles that we must follow.”

    If we ever pass a law to legalize homosexuality. Pass. A law to buy one island for all of them to live until death. Man and man cannot procreate nor woman and woman. So with a little patience they will all vanish from the face of the earth.
    God made male and female. Anything else is a freak of nature.

    Here is the future folks! Buggery and same-sex marriage WILL be legalised in Dominica in around 1 to 2 years from now.

    Do you know why???

    1) The US is a major pusher of gay ‘human’ rights. Therefore countries not following suit will be deemed ‘bad’ (like Libya, Iraq, etc.) and they will be destabilised economically and politically;

    2) Also, the EU, will follow suit as well as the major world organisations, like the UN.

    A ‘starved out’ Dominica, will find that it will have to choose between erased as a country, or following suit.

    Why, the NWO want us to be all gay? Well, this is against the bible – the word of God. And what is the NWO all about? The service of Satan and his desire to destroy us and God’s earth.

    Think I’m a nutter? Read the bible and then view what is happening all around the world today – a lot of coincidences my friends.

    Be prepared to take it like a man!

    Dominica I salute you in standing firm against this ungodliness. Someone has to put a stop to it.

  5. @Dominican Bwoi August 12, 2016—- \”Everyman has a right to love whom they please\”

    That is the basis of the error, disgusting, deplorable, and downright sinful practices that will take man to his sorry demise, right into the dust that he was formed from, never to see or know the Light in Love
    –that result is in that idea above, man using \”Love\” as a reason for their sinful attitude and conduct–a feeding to his mind from the God\’s enemy and his as well.

    Well let me tell you people, Love has nothing to do with those disgusting and shameful behavior– even in some marriages (man and woman) God has nothing to do with it; further more for that sinful thing which homosexuals are practicing.

    Apostle John tells us: \”God is Love, and he who abides in Love abides in God, and God in him.\” 1st. John 4: 16

    Consider this verse alone, and tell me: Do you believe that the function of homosexual is the Love of God and guided in them by God\’s Holy Spirit?

    • Come on now people! All sin is sin, the practice is to satisfy the flesh, which is controlled by the natural or human senses; Life is in the Spirit, it is your anointing from a God who is Holy, His Love is the Light our soul in its awakening–\”the flesh profits nothing\”! Says Christ Jesus. John 6: 63

      The Message of the Bible is the Message of Life in Love Jesus said to us, through His disciples: \”A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13; 34-35

      But how many of you know these principles of the Bible. You all do not know it, because you have chosen to trash the Message and to function by your own human or manmade principles–just keep in mind that the \”World and everything in it is passing away\” , but God has made providence for those who will know Him and His works of Life in Love.

    Solidarity with the gay community of Dominica and appreciation for the great work made by the association Miridom which fights for social equality and for the rights of all the people gay and not gay, regardless of the rules of religion and colonialism.

    Blessed Assurance… Jesus is mine. The members of MIRIDOM knows that homosexuality is a life style of choice and not an intrinsic part of life that makes it a human right….

    No one was born a homosexual, you choose to be a homosexual. How can you say it’s your human right to choose to become homosexual because you want to have sexual relations with people of the same sex…

    If is ice cream and ripe bananas you love… I not vex with you but don’t tell me its a right… its your choice

    ”Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34)

    People in a nation who lobby to strike down that nation’s laws against homosexuality almost always use the constitutional argument. They say the anti gay (or anti buggery) laws are unconstitutional.

    A law that is contrary to the constitution is not a valid law. It would mean that the government cannot pass such a law. If it does it is an unconstitutional law it cannot rightly be prosecuted. However, if Bible forbids the behavior it is a sin even if it is not a crime. The church must call it a sin, and its leaders must preach against it. We must and we will.

    False ”churches” – apostate religious organizations – pretending to be churches will condone and encourage what God forbids. The Bible (the Word of God) warns us that in the last days such people would come. This is a fulfilment of Bible prophecy. It is happening exactly as God said it would happen!

    • August 12, 2016

      Continuation:

      Read what God said the last days would be like.

      Matthew 24:11:12
      1 Timothy 4:1,2
      2 Timothy 4:1-4
      2 Peter 2:1-12
      Jude 7,8

      Especially read what God said the moral condition of the world would be like prior to the return of Christ.

      Luke 17:28-30 :!:

      Now back to the constitutional argument.

      A law that is unconstitutional is not a valid law. However, any statement in the constitution that is contrary to the Holy Scriptures is not valid in the sight of God. As Christians we believe any law based upon it is not valid. God tells us to obey the laws that are handed down to us by our government in Romans 13:1-7. But if a law violates the commandments of God we will say like the Blessed Apostle St. Peter ”We ought to obey God rather than men.” (Acts 5:29)

      Please understand that the Laws and constitution is there to serve every citizen be it Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, Atheist or any brand of Christian, and has to give fair and equal treatment to all. If you could reasonably explain to me who is the victim of two consenting adults having sex in their private space without mentioning the bible, then I could consider your opinions as ‘food for thought’.

      • August 12, 2016

        One man gave his male partner AIDS. The partner was the victim.

        A man left his wife to live with another man. The wife was the victim.

        A woman left her husband to live with another woman. Her husband was the victim.

        A man left his wife and two children to live with another man. The wife and two children were all victims.

        A young man ”comes out” to his parents and later dies with AIDS. His parents are victims twice over.

        A wife finds her trusted husband is on ”the downlow” when he gives her HIV. She is the victim.

        A man is suffering from depression, alcoholism, and commits suicide. He is a victim.

        Countless numbers of men and women pursue a life of homosexuality and die in their sins because GOD forbids these activities in Leviticus 18:22, 1 Corinthians 6:9,10, 1 Timothy 1:9,10, Jude vs.7. They go to hell because God says ”..they that do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9,10) They are all victims.

      • August 12, 2016

        The fact that two people ”consent” to sin does not make it permissible.

        A man and a woman each married to somebody else may ”consent”.

        A father and daughter may ”consent”.

        A brother and sister may ”consent”.

        An adult man and a 12 year old girl may ”consent”.

        A jail guard and an inmate may ”consent”.

        ”Consent” does not make it right. The ALL important question is does GOD permit this relationship :?: Is this activity something forbidden in the Word of God :?: Even if you don’t believe the Bible that makes no difference because on the last day the Word of God will judge
        you whether you believe it or not :!:

      “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

      2peter 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, MAKING THEM AN ENSAMPLE UNTO THOSE THAT AFTER SHOULD LIVE UNGODLY.

      Rev Hill.

      Religion (as Christianity isn’t the only religion) has held the mind of mankind in a box for centuries. Can we have a valid explanation as to why Gays should be discriminated against. Without bringing in the Bible..because the Bible was interpreted and translated under the auspices and guidance on mere men..and coined “the word of God”
      Pope Leo X, actually said that Jesus Christ is a Fable and that the Church has profited significantly from spreading Christianity.
      That same Christianity was used to keep black slaves submissive for over 400 years. In the name of the Lord and the power of the Church men were burnt at stakes for simply possessing the Bible in a language other than Latin. The earliest forged historical account of Jesus came even after 100 years of his alleged existence..

      time to get sensible and reasonable..I don’t advocate for Gay relations but I don’t blindly accept laws to discriminate against people just for the sake of unfounded beliefs..as…

      • August 12, 2016

        We are not discriminating against “gays” when we tell them what the Word of God says so they will repent and find salvation in Christ.

        Nor are we discriminating when we tell “gays” they can be delivered and set free from Satan’s bondage.

        We are not discriminating when we ask our political leaders to give us godly laws that echo the laws of God even as we pray “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

        You are terribly wrong in the things you say about Christ and the Bible. You may be sincere but your statements are incorrect and inaccurate. So much so that I am not worried for your readers
        because I know you have already lost any credibility you might have had.

        LifeandDeath, God loves you. I hope you will find your way into genuine Bible believing church.
        Talk to a pastor who is a true servant of God and ask him to lead you to Christ.

        It also was not the car that killed the child or a pedestrian, it was the person (probably drunk and high) behind the wheel who was reckless and broke the laws of safe driving. So, don’t blame the bible, don’t blame the car. We as humans are weak and will fault as we are tempted daily. The principle is there, it is us to practice and we must take responsibility of our own actions. Amen

      • @LifeandDeath August 12, 2016 \”Religion (as Christianity isn’t the only religion) has held the mind of mankind in a box for centuries\”.

        You have demonstrated your lack of knowledge of God and Life by believing that Christianity is a Religion. No it isn\’t!

        God is Love in Spirit, Truth, and Holiness, He desires that His people maintain a Relationship with Him through Worship, Fellowship with His Family in His presence, and Personally–meaning just Him and the One of us, who is His Child.

        And the disciples were first called Christians at Antioch Acts 11: 26. Those disciples were followers of Christ Jesus –not religion; God wants nothing to do with that movement.

        He laments against His chosen people (the Israelites) who turned His Laws to them into Religion: He said: \”These people honor Me with their lips but their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, speaking as doctrines, the commandments of men Mathew 15: 8-9; Isaiah 29: 13

    Miridom, whoever you all are, you all need to repent! Please note that the only recorded sin that God destroyed an entire nation – Sodom and Gomorrah for, was the sin of homosexuality (buggery). Meditate on that and ask God to forgive you all and turn from this bad habit.

      I don’t condone the act that they are calling for, but please do not tell “lies/untruths”. The two cities you refer to were NOT destroyed for the reason you claim. Just read that portion of the Bible in a more detailed manner and you will see.

      • August 12, 2016

        Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because of homosexuality. Read Genesis 19:1-25.

        In verse 5 the men of Sodom told Lot to send his two male visitors (angels in the form of men)
        out to them “…that we may know them.” This word “know” refers to a sexual relationship and is used that way in such a context in both the Old and New Testament.

        References to Sodom in the New Testament show that extreme sexual immorality was the reason the cities were destroyed. Read what it says in the New American Standard Bible (a very dependable translation.) “Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example, in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.” (Jude vs.7)

        Continuation:

        For hundreds of years nations with a Christian heritage have based their laws regarding homosexuality on this interpretation of Genesis 19. It has only been within the past 10 to 20 years some nations have dropped their anti-gay laws and legalized same sex marriage.
        This has not been because of research or new knowledge. It was entirely political.

        This new gay interpretation of certain scriptures did not come out of any seminary or Bible College. No accredited theologian or Bible scholar I know believes this way. The man who told me about this new way of explaining the anti-gay scriptures was a homosexual who had left his wife and two young sons to live with a gay bank manager in Toronto (so much for being born gay). It seems he picked up this new theology in a bar in Toronto’s gay village. He died with AIDS of a self inflicted gunshot wound.

        Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because the people practiced all sorts of sins, including homosexuality–this means that they were extreme, compared to the other Nations

        If you had read the Bible just as you have claimed, you would know that God bargained with Abraham–because his nephew Lot was living in Sodom–to the point that He promised to Abraham that He would not destroy those cities if He could find only 5 good people there.

        Well God did not even find one good person in those cities, and so for the sake of Abraham, He removed Lot and his family from Sodom, and He reigned fire and brimstone on those cities –is that clear enough for you?

        What this means is that the present Supreme Court of Belize think they are more intelligent and better informed than founding fathers of their nation. Do they know more – are they wiser – than the men who (a) wrote their constitution, and (b) and those who wrote the laws forbidding homosexuality?

        The same as every other nation that has dropped its anti-gay laws this change has not been because of research or new knowledge. It ha been entirely political. Also it is not for true constitutional reasons because there is absolutely nothing in the constitution that would force the elimination of anti-gay…

      CONTINUATION from Rev. Donald Hill, D.D.

      There is absolutely nothing in he constitution that would force the elimination of anti-gay laws, or prevent a law that would block same sex marriage.

      (1) If this was the case such a law would not have been passed in the first place. The legislators knew their
      constitution too well to let that happen.

      (2) When the founding fathers wrote the constitution anything they wrote was intended to provide equal rights for all without discrimination to marry somebody of the opposite gender. Homosexuality was not in the thinking of the men who wrote the constitution because it was not an issue at that time in history. They would not have been writing a constitution to give homosexuals the “right” to marry somebody of their own gender :!: Sodomy was appalling to them :!: This is clearly seen in the anti-buggery laws that followed .

      The way to deal with sexual child molestation is not to legalize homosexuality. What is needed is better enforcement, counseling programs, and pastors and evangelists who reach out with God’s love and forgiveness in a true Bible deliverance ministry.

        The bible was used to steal the land of indigenous people & the colonial laws were used to protect the thieves. The bible was used to justify slavery and the laws of the enslavers were used to enforce it.

        Wake Up and smell it cause that combination is toxic, destructive to the oppressed and it stinks.

        No offense, I smell a rat from the comments & see who is most obsessed with the topic of homosexuality. We’ve seen the most enthusiastic fighters against homosexuality are really trying to cover up their own acts & desires. Just Saying!

        This isn’t the first time you’ve claimed this, but as I’ve told you before, those studies have been discredited: http://facultysites.dss.ucdavis.edu/~gmherek/rainbow/html/facts_molestation.html

        If you have to keep lying to support your beliefs, perhaps it’s your beliefs that are the problem.

    Exactly, who is Mirdom??? And it would seem that per section 16 (1) (3) buggery is punishable only if it is done once a year (‘per annum’) with anyone.

    Secondly, why on earth would anyone want to legalise the thrusting of a penis in to the anus of another man, or woman for that matter? This gay thing has gone too far! Soon, they will be legalising marriage between two men (OMG, they have done that already!!!!); and for a man who is a TG to use women’s changing rooms, toilets and the like.

    Now how disgusting and ugly do things have to get before people like Miridom wake up and stop taking cash from their NWO backers?

    • August 12, 2016

      Indeed ”who is MiriDom :?:

      People are asking about the executives of MiriDom. If you are going to travel in a jet you might want to know the pilot is qualified to fly. If anybody is accepting advice or guidance from MiriDom they should know who are the people in the cockpit.

      Are their families in order :?: Do they have happy homes :?: Do they show integrity in their business lives :?: Have any of them been in trouble with the police :?: Have a criminal record :?:

      What is their attitude towards the Bible :?: We follow its teachings. It has given us a good life. My wife and I have been happily married for 53 years and have raised a family.

      All we know is that MiriDom has an agenda that is immoral according to the Bible. MiriDom promotes behavior and lifestyles forbidden by the Christian church for 2,000 years. So before anybody takes a trip with you they should know who is in your cockpit.

    Sodom and Gomorrah at its best. It is coming upon the world in a worst manner. Satan works is rampant and evident, he who roams around the world seeking whom he may devour to the destruction of their souls in his eternal cauldron of everlasting fire. St. Paul said: “Reject him!
    This is nothing for them to be proud of. When they stand before God they will find out about their abomination, intrinsically evil lifestyle and where it will take them to, in eternity.
    It is my feeling when all countries adopt this offensive lifestyle, God will purge the world. Wait and see. How much can God take this slap in his face, He who created man and woman and said go and multiply?
    Fellow Dominicans, practicing Christians of all, pray, pray, pray and make penance as a means of atonement to console the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus at this mortal (moral) and spiritual offense.

    It would appear that Buggery is a more haenous crime than Murder,when some one commits murder, that person is sentenced for 4 yrs.

      Not that I want them to be either, but I’d rather my child be a murderer than a batty boy to be honest.

  21. August 11, 2016

    Frankly i think that it is entirely appropriate to punish anal rape of minors who cannot consent with a lengthy custodial sentence.

    For adults the issue is consent not the type of sexual activity. Sexual activity is for adults and should never ever be forced, coerced or exploitative.

    I have been calling on the LGBT community to join their voices with Child Advocates, to protect minors from sexual exploitation. Gay or straight, teens need to space to grow and develop their identities without being introduced to adult activities too early. Our adolescents need to be encouraged to study, to focus, and to practice purity , doing the best they can. There is no place for under 18s to be used and abused by older people.

    These gay people in Dominica just looking for attention, they need to stop acting like gays in Dominica have it so bad

    • Zagaya

      I suspect that if you were gay in Dominica you would be saying another thing. I have seen how gays are treated in Dominica and if they are not strong they would be trampled upon. Suspected lesbians are treated differently, we have to stop the double standard.

      • August 23, 2016

        You want to “stop the double standard :?:

        Then get them to treat lesbians the same way :!:

        Actually, homosexuals are not treated that badly in Dominica unless they openly flaunt their homosexual behavior. But the so-called “anti-gay” laws are necessary to contain this abomination because these are people with little respect for the law.

        If homosexuals want equality thy should appreciate that the laws against vice apply to both heterosexuals and homosexuals but they don’t to hear of this.

        A case in point: The time a Gay Cruise Ship pulled into your shore. Two gay men gave a naked sex show from the side of the ship . They buggered each other before an audience of men, women, and children on the shore in broad day light. When they were arrested (for doing what any man and woman would have been arrested for) they cried “homophobic” and screamed
        “discrimination” all the way back to the land of the Stars and Stripes.

    Psh.who is miridom?DNO why are you reporting like miridom is a persons name?miridom did not say anything.someone did,maybe a director or pro or something.why are you quoting miridom and not the individual who said whatever.

    • Dominican Bwoi
      August 11, 2016

      I agree. Probably because the person is too scared/embarrassed to make their name public because they know that they’re wrong.

    • August 15, 2016

      Because the cause they are representing is not exactly something they are proud of.

      The people who are advocating for homosexuality and pushing to decriminalize buggery do not want to be identified. This way it looks like an organization is making certain statements which could mean it was a significant number of people not them personally. This is why they launched MiriDom.

      They are opposing the Word of God, the teaching of the church for the past 2,000 years, the position held by nations for centuries, and educated Christian leaders who are not afraid to put their names on their writings even though they are known to the world.

      The nations that have decriminalized homosexuality have not done so because of research or new knowledge. It has been entirely political. There would be some red faces if the truth was known. There is a very dark side to this.

    There are many Laws that pass their time. Just Like making possession of small quantities of Marijuana for personal use illegal..

    Just because Cigarette Smoking is Legal don’t mean everybody smoke it neither.

    I still believe that both Men and Women would better contribute to humanity if they avoid dedicating their life and their time exclusively and selfishly to the same sex, without consideration for procreation and continuation of the human race.
    However, to incriminate and prejudice a man’s sexual preference is depriving a man’s basic human right, unless it can be proven that relations were not consensual or involving minors. Then the crime would be Rape.
    Humanity is moving forward in many ways and becoming more understanding and tolerant of our differences..The Catholic Church in earlier centuries saw it fit to burn at the stake holders of Bibles in languages other than Latin, even when their first language was NOT Latin. Now how trivial was that???

    • August 12, 2016

      Many people do not believe a man has a ”basic human right” to shove his penis into another man’s rectum. Now how backward is that :?:

      Who has the authority to give men such a ”basic human right :?: At the best it could only be another man or men. Then if a man or men forbid him that would cancel out his ”right” and void him of his privilege.

      I have news for you ”human rights” people. God Almighty Creator of the heavens and the earth, supreme law giver and ultimate judge of all mankind has forbidden this vile activity and calls it an abomination. You never did have the ”right” to bugger one another.

      Leviticus 18:22
      Romans 1:26,27
      1 Corinthians 6:9,10

      But here is good news. If you believe that Christ died for you to pay the debt for your sins and rose again – if you receive HIM as your Savior – you will be forgiven because “… the blood of Jesus Christ (God’s) Son cleanses us from ALL sin.” (1 John 1:7)

      • August 23, 2016

        Viewsexpressed:

        This is an intelligent analysis.

        Those who are opposed to the vice think there is nothing they can do to change things so they go with the flow. Unfortunately this is sometimes interpreted as approval.

        Many times we will not succeed when it comes to changing something. But as a Christian I know God requires us to do what we can. We are to be “the salt of the earth” and “the light of the world.” (Matthew 5:13,14)

        How shall we respond to the evil?

        Pray against it.

        Speak against it by quoting the Word of God (telling people what God says).

        Write against it. Again, give people the Word of God not your opinion!

        Vote against it. This means you find out in advance where your candidate stands on the social issues – the moral issues – of the day. Vote for the candidate who is FOR what God is for, and AGAINST what God is against :!:

        Would you let a homosexual man baby sit your six year old boy? Or take your 12 year old son on a camping trip? Or teach your 14 year old boy a sport?

        When I was a kid there were homosexual men in town who were known to molest boys. They were in trouble with the police again and again.

        One owned a horse ranch. He would give boys free horseback rides. Not girls mind you. Just teen boys. He seemed to prefer one boy at a time and they would ride off down the winding trail. Boys at school told me about their escapades.

        Another hung out in the park. He was there most evenings playing baseball. But his specialty was swimming. He loved to teach the boys to swim. He would be there in the water with one arm around a boy teaching him the strokes. His hand and fingers would find there way into the kid’s private area.

        Then there was the “preacher”. He operated a little “church”. His mode of operation was to take boys down the basement on weeknights for religious instruction.

      Do you consider this statement a reasoned one? I suggest that you educate yourself a lot more before you make statements like that again.

    • August 12, 2016

      I assume you conveniently don’t believe you deserve death for whatever sins you commit?

      • August 15, 2016

        Right on Steve.

        This is a sobering thought.

        We have all sinned and deserve “death” including myself. I encourage people to read Romans 1:26-32 and pay special attention verse 32.

        Homosexuality as a sin is in a class by itself for two reasons.

        (1) It is against nature. (Romans 1:26,27)

        (2) It is contrary to God’s model for marriage and human sexuality. (Matthew 19:4-6)

        But like any other sin it can be forgiven if the individual repents and trusts the blood of Jesus Christ for his (her) salvation. God is able to – and will – set the person free from this and every other sinful bondage.

        The Christian gospel is the good news of 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 that Christ took the guilt of our sins upon Himself and died as our substitute. All who believe this according to Romans 1:16 and receive Him are forgiven because “…the blood of Jesus Christ (God’s) Son cleanses us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7)

        For those who reject Christ and His salvation there remains nothing…

    • August 23, 2016

      By mocking the Holy Scriptures you lose any credibility you might have had.

      Then you make a fool of yourself by saying “Everyman has a right to love whom they please.” Let me
      share a secret. If you want to know if a statement is right or wrong just follow it to its own extreme and
      see where it takes you.

      Does a man have a right to “love” his neighbor’s wife? His bosses wife? Or three woman at one time?

      Ten women? Does he have a “right” to “love” his dog? His pony?

      Do you think this will make Belize a better place to live?

      Do you think most parents would want a homosexual to babysit their five year old son? Or take their son s swimming? Camping?

      No nation has yet had legalized homosexuality long enough to know the outcome. But it is a slippery
      slope.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.
