The TT Council of Evangelical Churches says it disagrees with the stance of the CEO of the TT American Chamber of Commerce, Nirad Tewarie, that the Equal Opportunity Act should be amended to end legal discrimination against the LGBTQI community.
It said, “The council maintains that to do so would only serve to normalise the behaviour of LGBTQI people. In fact, the council has already made it clear that such behaviour contravenes the word of God, the Bible. Pro-gay rights advocates insist that the Bible is irrelevant in a multi-religious, multi-cultural and multi-ethnic world; however, contrary to that assertion, the Bible applies to all. For that reason, the (council) continues to insist that this behaviour not be sanctioned on any level in society.”
