no-photoThe Alliance of Leaders and Ministers of Belize issued a release on Monday in which they gave the Government of Belize a deadline of 30 days (May 31st 2014) to completely retract the Gender Policy and all destructive laws associated with it. Today, the Belize Association of Evangelical Churches issued a release after they met for two hours with the Prime Minister at his Belize City Office.

 

It was the Executive Team of the Association that met with the Prime Minister to discuss a way forward in reference to the Gender Policy. In that release, Reverend Eugene Crawford, President of the Evangelical Association states that the PM clarified remarks that the government was implementing the document without further consultations with the churches.

 

The release also states that the PM said that government has procured professional advice on the Church’s submission and a meeting between both parties is soon to be held in order to reach consensus for the final document. Viewers may recall that both the Evangelical Association and Council of Churches together submitted a joint report last year expressing concerns and making recommendations on the Gender Policy. Those submissions include concerns and recommendations based strongly on biblical and family values, constitutional protections of family and religious freedoms and convictions.

 

A meeting to further discuss the submission will reportedly take place sometime in July. The Belize Association of Evangelical Churches will be holding a press conference on Friday May 9th at the Central Assembly sanctuary.
