Multi-millionaire pastor Myles Munroe has shown his ignorance and lack of Christian compassion as he lambasted the government for supporting the United Nations resolution affirming equal rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) persons.
Munroe, who obviously never read the resolution, says supporting it is inconsistent with the country’s constitution.
Mr Munroe is senior pastor of Bahamas Faith Ministries International (BFMI). He has made millions off the spiritually ignorant and lives a lifestyle that would make Jesus weep.
Munroe believes the resolution is at odds with the Bahamas’ constitution, which says that the country’s foundation is built on Christian morals.
“Our constitution clearly states that the Bahamas is founded on Christian values and beliefs and this (resolution) is not a decision the government of the Bahamas should support,” said Pastor Munroe.
The self-appointed pastor fails to mention that the “Christian” nation has one of the highest murder rates in the world, the highest incest rate in the developed world, rampant sexual abuse, shocking levels of child abuse and one of the most corrupt societies in the Western Hemisphere.
Laughingly, Munroe says the resolution must be deemed “inconsistent with our constitutional national commitment to an abiding respect for Christian values, the rule of law, the supremacy of God and a nation founded on spiritual values.”
Of course, anyone familiar with the levels of crime and corruption in the country would think that the Bahamas has no committment to Christian values, no rule of law whatsoever, and is driven by greed and corruption, not spiritual values.
The UN resolution was narrowly passed in the council in Geneva, Switzerland.
It was aimed at eliminating discrimination against gays throughout the world, affirming that gays should be accorded basic human rights, including freedom to choose sexuality.
Twenty-three countries on the human rights council supported the resolution, 19 voted against it and three countries abstained.
The Bahamas was only an observer on the council and therefore not eligible to vote, but Minister of Foreign Affairs Brent Symonette said the country supports the principle behind the resolution.
