Christian and LGBT Groups Have Brought the Battle for Gay Rights to the Caribbean

Christian and LGBT Groups Have Brought the Battle for Gay Rights to the Caribbean | Belize in Social Media | Scoop.it
Controversy over the region's colonial-era "buggery" laws is exposing a new form of advocacy -- and anti-colonialism.
BelizeNet.com's insight:

For conservative religious organizations, mostly in the United States, foreign countries represent not just a fresh opportunity to influence the debate over homosexuality, but also a source of fundraising and followers. Even before the June 26 Supreme Court rulings on gay marriage in the United States, these groups recognized that they were losing the gay-rights debate at home, but they figure that their chances are better abroad.
