3. During a meeting on reforming Trinidad's constitution, a gay activist discussed the discrimination he faces. A newspaper reported the following response by a representative of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
A representative of the public affairs department of the Seventh Day Adventist Church said everybody has the right to choose a lifestyle including her “homosexual brother”, referring to Robinson. She added they should not be discriminated against and should have a right to justice.
She noted, however, that this country should not “swing to the next direction” like the Courts in Canada and Australia where people who refuse to marry same sex couples, refuse to build houses for same sex couples or those who wear the symbol of the cross to work are penalised.
She stressed that religious people have rights and homosexual people have rights and when these come into conflict no one party should be disadvantaged for being a “conscientious objector”.
She called for supremacy of God to be retained in the Constitution.
