BELIZE JOURNAL, Pt.1: The year 2013 is ending with major victories for traditional family values over the gay agenda in three nations. All three of them—India, Australia and Jamaica—are British Commonwealth nations. This bodes well for the former British colony Belize. In fact India was repeatedly cited as a precedent for legalizing gay sex in Belize’s court hearings in May.
But on Dec. 11 the Supreme Court of India struck down the 2009 Delhi High Court order which had legalized sodomy. The court said it was up to the people’s representatives in the national legislature to make or change such laws. That was the same argument used by church lawyers in Belize’s court case, in accordance with the nation’s constitution. But Belize’s Chief Justice Kenneth Benjamin has inexplicably delayed ruling on that case for seven months now.
In contrast, a mere five days after a new law legalizing same-sex marriage took effect in Canberra, Australia, that nation’s High Court overturned it. The court affirmed the precedence of the federal Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between one man and one woman. Like India’s Supreme Court and Belize’s church lawyers, Australia’s High Court said that challenges to such laws belonged in the national legislature.
In Jamaica, LGBT activist lawyer Maurice Tomlinson tried to promote the gay agenda in ads on three TV stations. When the stations declined to air his ads, he took them to court. On Nov. 15 Jamaica’s three Supreme Court Justices unanimously upheld the rights of the media to decide what they will broadcast. They said that freedom of expression does not give Tomlinson the right to use other people’s property—or media—to express his views.
But he has another case promoting the gay agenda before the Caribbean Court of Justice. Tomlinson is challenging the immigration laws of Belize and Trinidad & Tobago. He claims that they are restricting his freedom of movement when they deny access to open homosexuals. We must take into account that Tomlinson married a Canadian priest overseas in January. Does he want to enter Belize with his “husband” as a kind of publicity stunt for the gay agenda?
Tomlinson’s case against the Jamaican TV stations is a revealing example of gay activists’ aggressive grandstanding ploys. Thank God that the Jamaica’s Supreme Court justices were just as aggressive in demolishing his case. They provided a 334-point argument against his claims in their decision.
