Costa Rica passes Gay Marriage

Laura Chinchilla

While a Supreme Court decision in the constitutional challenge brought against the Government of Belize by UNIBAM’s Caleb Orosco, to repeal Section Fifty-Three of the Criminal Code, is being anxiously awaited, in Costa Rica conservative lawmakers have been duped into legalizing gay marriage.  Enacting same-sex unions, in a recently passed “Law of Young People” which covers social services and marriage, was a mistake committed by the Costa Rican Legislative Assembly before realizing that their liberal counterparts inserted language that could allow civil unions for gay couples.  The contentious language was inscribed by Jose Maria Villalta, a member of the progressive Frente Amplio Party.  Angry Christian conservatives have demanded that President Laura Chinchilla reject the legislation when it crosses her desk.  Chinchilla, however, has refused to oppose the passage of the bill.  Once enacted, the law will likely face challenges in the country’s courts, which it is expected to lose.

    i am so sick of the the complete ignorant hate in belize. you think homosexuality is an international agenda and kiss your crosses as if missionaries didn’t bring them to you.

    And dat is exactly what Caleb and the women’s commission wanted to do here in Belize – “dupe” us into blindly approving a policy which would then become the basis for diff. legislation for their “evil” agenda. Wake up Belizeans!!

    let us watch the downfall of Costa Rica after this gay marriage, we’re watching uncle sam go down slowly and the rest of them will follow. God loves the people but not the sin and homo is a sin period.

    This is exactly what gayleb and udibav wants to do in Belize.. The court should reject anything does homos want to change in our legislation. Missionaries do not bring no foreign agenda. Christianity was in Belize before these missionaries came to our country. They just came and work with the Belizean people. No foreign agenda.. Gay marriage is a foreign agenda. No one is born a homosexual. If God says he made us in his image, then how can u argue homos are born that way.

    arj, no offense but indeed homosexuals (well they go by the label Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered – LGBT) have organized themselves internationally with the agenda of making their lifestyles acceptable everywhere on this planet.

    Make of it what you will. Deal with it how ever you feel appropriate for your society, but don’t act like strong international forces are not acting upon countries like Costa Rica and your own Belize to get their agenda through regardless of whether it benefits your society and its people or doesn’t.

    Should, I just ask, Belize yield to this pressure, or should the decision be based solely on the health and welfare of the people of Belize. Decide as you will but don’t let foreigners decide your future for you.

    By the way, this is exactly the tactic the pro LBGT forces have used in many states in the United States. They most often go around the will of the people. In the state of Iowa it was passed by judges saying it was legal even though it wasn’t. California even had a vote, an initiative, where all the people of the state voted and it was determined that the majority of people in California didn’t want gay marriage. California of all places. But a gay judge stopped the law from being enacted even though really he didn’t have the power.

    The only place where I know of that the LBGT forces had a win that didn’t include some tricky legal tactics and/or judges exceeding their authority was in the state of Washington. There the majority of people did vote for the legalization of gay so called “marriage”. The majority of people also voted fro the legalization of marijuana the same year in Washington State.

    But the point isn’t whether or not it is legal or illegal in some foreign country. The point is the tactics used most often are deceptive and against the popular will and so it should be expected that just like they did this in Costa Rica and in many of the States in the United States, you should expect trickery in Belize as well because of the international LGBT forces that are active,

    And I do wonder how much influence the Obama forces had through the power they have through the United States government on the outcome in Costa Rica.
