CENTRAL AMERICA: Belize Court May Decriminalize Homosexuality

Homosexual acts between men are presently illegal in the tiny Central American nation of Belize, with punishments as harsh as ten years in prison. But according to the quite nasty alert I've just been forwarded, Belize's sodomy law will be reviewed by the nation's highest court on December 5th.
The homosexual organization UNIBAM (United Belize Advocacy Movement) and Caleb Orozco has brought a lawsuit against the Attorney General, and thus, Govt. of Belize, seeking to change Section 53 of the Criminal Code, which says: "Any person who has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any person or any animal shall be liable to 10 years imprisonment." Orosco & UNIBAM are seeking to remove the words “any person or” so that this law would not apply to interpersonal relationships but only that of sex with animals. They are seeking to use the Constitution phrases & sections pertaining to “personal privacy, human dignity, etc.” to have the present law declared unconstitutional unless that wording is changed. The end goal is SAME SEX MARRIAGE in Belize and a broad HOMOSEXUAL AGENDA of what’s called “GENDER MAINSTREAMING,” making the gay & lesbian lifestyle accepted in our society & culture.
The group fighting the repeal of anti-sodomy laws has a Facebook page.

RELATED: Female homosexual acts are not banned in Belize. It is currently illegal for "professional homosexuals" to enter the country for any reason.
