Profamily defense stops OAS LGBTI resolution

BELIZE JOURNAL PT.1 on profamily defense. The Organization of American States (OAS), representing the entire western hemisphere, met in Cancun June 19-21 for its annual General Assembly. On the final day pro-LGBTI advocates pushed hard to add further special LGBTI rights to OAS’ annual “human rights” resolution. They promoted “individuals with intersex traits” as a new […] Continue reading →

OAS nations sovereignty vs. LGBTI agenda

Specifically the OAS, along with the Inter-American […] Continue reading →

Long range community development for Belize

BELIZE JOURNAL PT. 2 on long range community development. Our current Festival of Hope evangelism campaign peaks with a week of gospel activities July 16-22.

Pro-family curriculum to resist LGBT agenda

BELIZE JOURNAL PT. 2 on pro-family curriculum. Sodomy may now be legalized—at least until we can mount a successful appeal of that Supreme Court decision. But we must do all we can to see that sodomy is not promoted. Especially not in schools—where kids are just beginning to grow into their God-given sexual identities. The National […] Continue reading →

Watchmen Committee to guard family values

BELIZE JOURNAL PT.1 on watchmen committee. With sodomy now legalized and the difficulty of appeal, we can expect the foreign gay lobby to push more pro-LGBT measures on Belize. So the National Evangelical Association of Belize (NEAB) has started a Watchmen Committee to guard family values. We will watch for LGBT incursions in all seven […] Continue reading →
