a just cause...


There was a Family Focus Forum held at the University of Belize on Tuesday. Tom was asked to represent the Child Development Foundation and give a 10 minute presentation.  The issue being discussed is the removal of sodomy laws here in Belize.

Our involvement is related to how the repeal of this law would affect male children and teens. As this sodomy law is the only law Belize has right now to charge pedophiles with who prey on young men.  There has been much in the media lately about teen boys being violated  and this part of the issue needs to be heard when the case about repealing section 53 goes to court in December.

Tom is introduced in this video at minute 6:52.  Please keep this issue in your prayers!

  3. Oh wow...you and Tom just continue to inspire indeed. I hope the law is abolished soon...that is so sad that such laws exist to condone such behaviors!

  5. not sure where this ended up, as it went for vote in december and i am now reading in march...but hoping and praying with you that the Lord won this battle! Stand strong. We recently had our own battle as we fought to be able to continue to use the Bible to teach our children..Canada has gone so far down the wrong road already that this video would NEVER have been shown on the news here and would have had the men on it charged and brought in front of the human rights tribunal. stand strong. praying with the church in Belize. :) darci
