NEAB Says No; P.M. Has ‘Ultra-Liberal’ Agenda

The National Evangelical Association of Belize has registered its disagreement with the proposed new legislation, which it says is a wrong move in the wrong direction that will bring wrong results. It cites its own package of scientific studies and reports showing the danger of marijuana use in younger persons and also claims that the U.S. state of Colorado’s legalization experiment is not working. Here is what NEAB member Louis Wade told reporters today from a personal and organizational perspective.

 

Louis Wade, Member, National Evangelical Association of Belize

“The position of NEAB is based on the advice they received from the Drug Control Council a couple years ago, when the Council stated they were opposed to the idea, because the social structures were not in place as yet; we know that those structures are not in place.  I have long held that the government of Dean Barrow is an ultra-liberal organization; which is why, rather than dealing with economic issues, moving us out of the recession, they have instead targeted issues such as the decriminalization of homosexuality; decriminalization of marijuana; decriminalization of protection. So they have not been able to move the country out of a recession, but they are following a social agenda, an ultra-liberal agenda; so we believe that the timing is – it’s a third term; he’s not going to go up for election; the voters’ list is very corrupt, it’s twenty years old, he’s not going to do re-registration. So the Barrow administration is disconnected from the voters because of the corrupt voters’ list, so he can now carry out an ultra-liberal agenda.”
