Barbados: Opposing groups march over proposal to legalize same-sex unions

Christians marching against Government’s proposal to legalize same-sex unions are being challenged by the group they are protesting against.

When scores of Christians marched from Lower Estate, St George to Glebe playing field on Saturday, in that same parish, they were surprised to see about six people with placards in hand, in support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

The Christians who participated in the event, organised by the Family-Faith-Freedom Barbados movement, did not allow the presence of the LGBT supporters stop them from protesting against the recent announcement in the Throne Speech, delivered by Governor General Dame Sandra Mason, that Government is gearing up to recognise same sex civil unions.

During the event, which lasted for just over two hours, the Christians sang hymns and delivered speeches and prayers that stressed on the point that recognizing civil unions for couples of the same sex will destroy the moral fabric of society.
