    The Church launches major offensive against efforts to legalise homosexuality

    The Christian community in Guyana has announced that it will be going all out in its efforts to block the passage of any legislation that would lead to the decriminalisation of same sex relations.

    Several church bodies issued a statement on Thursday calling on the government to resist pressure to legalise same sex relations as the National Assembly prepared to debate a motion on that issue along with the abolition of corporal and capital punishment.

    “As servants of the Living God, we implore you, Honourable Members of the Tenth Parliament of Guyana, not to pursue the decriminalisation of homosexuality. We are conscious of the political and economic pressure that you may experience or are experiencing and as such encourage you to preserve the sovereignty of our nation and … the integrity of family life which continues to be the bedrock of our society,” the statement read.

    Keep in mind this was the home base of the notorious Jonestown People's Temple, which also had the goal of achieving a certain familial/social "purity."

    That went well for everyone involved.
