Religious leaders rally together …”NO TO GAY MARRIAGE”

Spread the word
Simply put, the religious leaders are against gay marriages!

On Monday, the heads of this country’s major religious groups came out against same-sex marriages.

They are also against any plan to amend the equality laws to facilitate the LGBTQIA community.

The powerful religious group which included Roman Catholic Archbishop Jason Gordon, secretary general of the Sanatan Dharma Maha Sabha, Sat Maharaj, President of the Anjuman Sunnat Jamaat Association (ASJA), Yacoob Ali, head of the Evangelical Council of Trinidad and Tobago, Desmond Austin, and President of the Faith Based Network, Winston Mansingh.

The group called on Government and the Opposition to amend the Marriage Act by way of a special majority so as to prevent same-sex marriages from taking place legally in this country.

They called for the amendment to be made by the first session of the next Parliament in September.
Gordon said the basic principal of marriage being for the unification of spouses and for procreating of children is shared by Muslim, Hindu and Christian communities, which together, comprise the bulk of the population.

Gordon added, “We believe our society and the fabric of Trinidad and Tobago as we know it is at risk.

The belief that gender was no longer a fact was a pernicious lie that created a lot of problems for children and the global society.”

Gordon said that when the United States legalized same sex marriage, this country became infected with the belief that such a union was right. But he said Trinidad and Tobago was a different society and the time had come for people in society to ask what they want to become.

He continued, “A very vocal minority should not be able to get their agenda through.”

Gordon said the group was not campaigning against anyone but was standing for truth.

ASJA president Yacoob Ali said if the good Lord wanted same-sex marriage to happen, it would have a case of Adam and Steve and not Adam and Eve. He said there can be no support for Adam and Steve.

Sat Maharaj said homosexuality is forbidden in Hinduism and there is no room whatsoever for same-sex marriage. He added, “It has always been our position that marriage is between a male and a female to ensure nature’s law prevails.”

The group plans to present a joint statement to Parliament. The gathering of the religious heads came following a High Court ruling in April that the buggery law was unconstitutional.
