Catholic Church Takes Heat From Some Controversial Organizations

Mass timingThe Catholic Church is taking heat from some controversial organizations such as UNIBAM and the National Aids Commission.

The reason is because the Catholic Church in Belize has made certain managerial decisions to protect their school children from some of these organizations which push various agenda which are contrary to the church’s moral teachings.

The groups to be kept out of the schools, according to a memo circulated to the catholic school managers and principals, are the Belize Family Life Association (BFLA), known for its condoning of abortion rights; UNIBAM, the group responsible for the pushing of the homosexual agenda in Belize; and the National AIDS Commission, known for its distribution of condoms to young people as the answer to the AIDS epidemic.

These are contrary to the Church’s teachings, but the National Aids Commission Director says they are not looking at their work from any religious point of view.

“We are not looking at trying to ensure that we pay more attention to one religious denomination over any other.  Our missions and our purpose is our national development.  So, anything that has to do with sexual orientation and all of that, is not one of the priorities that we are paying attention to.  We are looking to save lives and improve quality of lives as far as we can.  That includes all persons.  So, we are not looking at it from a religious perspective.  That is not our mission; that is not our purpose”.

Mrs. Green says she regrets that the bishop of the Catholic church, who sent out the memo, has been “misinformed” about organizations such as the National AIDS Commission.

Throughout the Caribbean, church organizations have been complaining that their countries’ National Aids Commissions have been hijacked by the homosexual  agenda and many Commissions have been actively blocking church organizations from fully participating in the commission’s work.
