CAUSE to host mass rally Sunday
Chad Bryan, Star Writer

Several members from denominations across the island will participate in a mass rally in Half-Way Tree square on Sunday at 5 p.m. in support of a number of national issues.

The rally, which has been organised by the newly formed local church group, Jamaica Churches Action Uniting Society for Emancipation (CAUSE), sets to urge Jamaicans to stand up for a strong and healthy family structure, for justice and righteousness in the nation, and to stand up against the repeal of the buggery law and against the homosexual agenda.

"There is a secularist agenda that seeks to reconfigure and restructure our nation in a different format. We want to raise the awareness of the Jamaican people about that agenda. We want to encourage our people to continue to support the foundation upon which the Jamaican society has been built, which is a foundation built on scripture," said senior member of CAUSE, the Reverend Dr Stevenson Samuels.

Samuels pointed out that within the secularist agenda is the homosexual agenda.

"This is being pushed by major entities, many of which are international, multinational agencies that are imposing their core values on our nation through conventions and organisations," said Samuels, who urged Jamaicans to resist this agenda.

Samuels mentioned that the support from the local churches, particularly those under the Jamaica umbrella groups of churches, which represents roughly 99 per cent of the country's Christian community, has been tremendous.

A number of pastors are also expected to speak at the rally, including leading anti-gay pastor, the Reverend Peter Garth.
