NEAB says it is appalled at LGBT flag hoist by US Embassy

On Thursdaywe reported that the US Embassy in Belmopan, raised an LGBT flag on its premises alongside the American flag in commemoration of LGBT Pride Month. Members of the Belizean LGBT community were invited to attend the event.    While those on the US compound were discussing the pride of those involved in and promoting homosexual activities, on Belizean soil just outside the gate were those praying against the promotion of that ifestyle in the country of Belize. Today, the National Evangelical Association of Belize issued a press release saying that  NEAB and the almost 300 Churches & Ministries it represents nationwide,   “ appalled at the US Embassy raising of the LGBT flag over Belize yesterday. The NEAB finds it terribly disrespectful of our nation and laws, as well as provocative in the pushing and promoting of homosexuality globally.  US Ambassador Moreno stated on June 24th, 2014 I can affirmatively state that from the perspective of the United States there is no LGBT agenda. I think what the mission of the United States is to promote human rights with respect to all groups…  The truth is obvious.  We repudiate efforts to redefine human rights in ways that are contradictory to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which is crystal clear in protecting religious freedoms and the natural family.”
