Evangelical Church Reacts to Observation of Gay Pride Month

Lance Lewis

While members of the church did not gather en masse at the gates of the U.S. Embassy this morning, the leadership of the National Evangelical Association of Belize was present to voice its disdain for the controversial flag raising ceremony.  According to President Lance Lewis, flying the LGBT flag is an outward expression that the gay community is being given preferential treatment.  His church brother also attests that is simply another phase in a much publicized agenda.

 

Pastor Lance Lewis, President, NEAB

“I am saying now when you put a flag representing a community like that on the same level as an American flag, in that sense, on the same pole, you are promoting this group to a higher level and now we’re seeing that the persons who are normal have less rights than the persons who are gay and that is the reversal of divine order.  The reversal of moral order, there’s a reversal of order in the nation so we are saying that that is wrong and they are trying to disturb and destroy the moral fiber of this country.  We could not go to America and do what they come here and do, even in our embassy.  So I think that they should retract from this and we should get them to move away from this agenda and the government.  Just as how the prime minister, when they have been stopped.”

Carlos Moreno, U.S. Ambassador

“I don’t think the religious community per se has anything to be concerned about when the advocacy here is to accord everyone basic human dignity. I certainly respect people’s religious beliefs and I don’t think that this impacts those religious beliefs in any meaningful way.”

“If you look at the agenda carefully, they have a whole section that deals with anti-discrimination laws.  It’s just another phase that they want to bring after we’ve seen the sequence of how they’re manifesting their agenda, you know, but of that nature.”

    Mr Moreno I hope and pray that your agenda God will make you see the real truth and not this sodomy thing. To me your disrespecting me and my family and you should respect us Belizeans.

    Woe is the day when that flag was raised in our Peaceful Jewel Belize, that is calling for Gods’ judgement upon our land. God has speared our land from many disasters but too sad if immorality is tolerated then Gods’ hand will move. May He then spear the lives of good moral Christians and deal harshly with the immortals. In Genesis 5:1-2 says “This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; 2. Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created”. He created Adam and Eve and not Harry and Johnny or Sally and Susie. So what is all this about this lgbt? What dignity are they talking about? The one satan took from them? Repent you lgbt or you will burn in hell all you evil doers!

    The United States wants to control the GOB. They have given “gifts” to the GOB (guns, police vehicles, etc). These are not free gifts; there is a heavy price to pay for “free”. My wife and I have seen what the LGBT community has done to indoctrinate the children into their “lifestyle”. We have mentioned NAMBLA in the past https://www.nambla.org/ Do you want your children to be sodomized? Do you want them to be exposed to this lifestyle. All the parents and grandparents who want to insure that their children/grandchildren are exposed to a heterosexual life style must stand up and protest the actions of the United States government that are contrary to our Constitution. Adults have lifestyle choices. Hitler indoctrinated the “Hitler Youth”; the United States is attempting to do the same thing here in Belize. We are a sovereign nation; we will not become a vassal of any nation.
