Cuba: What Cuba’s Religious Fundamentalists Want to Sweep Under the Carpet

A few weeks ago, Reuters news agency published a video in which a preacher from Havana’s Methodist Church claimed that all Christians are against Article 68 of the draft Constitution (which takes out a reference to gender in defining marriage) because the Bible condemns it, quite simply.

These proclamations were made in the name of its communities by over 20 leaders of Protestant denominations and the Catholic Church to support this position, suggesting that Cubans who share Christianity as a religion form a united front against passing and legalizing same-sex marriage.

However, reality goes beyond the frenetic sermons that have been filling different church pulpits for months now, churchgoers repeating their leaders’ ideas or images of hundreds of people expressing the opinion of “the majority”, as part of the denominations that bring many other thousands of people together nationwide.
