Association Stands Strong on LGBT and Gender Police Issues

The division has far-reaching implications, especially with critical issues like LGBT rights and the gender policy. The major push in the evangelical stance on those issues came from the districts, and not from Belize City. Pastor Lance Lewis says that won’t change, and they will not back down from the hard-line stance they have taken.

“We cannot drop it. We will work with the Senator to see that it is kept in the focus and along the lines of biblical understanding of man woman relationship. We are not into despising or getting rid of the sodomy laws. We still believe that it should be kept on the books. It is unfortunate that for over two years that case came up and nothing has been issued on it. We feel that they are just waiting for time to do what they have to do. But we are standing strong against any idea of repealing the sodomy laws and the gender policy. We stay firm as we did before we had this new institution, this new group. What we believed then we still believe now. We are not hundred percent sure of what the other side, the Council of Churches view is on the gender issues, but we know where we stand and so the Senator should represent our view because he came out of the evangelical group, so we have to keep straight on that. We have believed for the past couple years that this is the issue. We are not for this new gender movement and we are not for LGBT and we stand on that. We feel that if he does not represent us, then we have to find another way forward.”
