Five Evangelical churches in Cuba say they oppose same-sex marriage because the ideology of gender is totally foreign to Cuban culture or “the historic leaders of the Revolution.” The Evangelical League of Cuba, the Eastern and Western Baptist Conventions, the Methodist Church of Cuba and the Assembly of God Evangelical Church explained their posture in a statement posted last week on their social networks. The statement came as the legislative National Assembly gets ready to meet at the end of this month to consider changes to the 1976 Constitution. “We want to make authorities aware of the dangers that same-sex marriage can present to the nation,” Dariel Llanes Quintana, president of the Western Baptist Convention, said in a telephone interview.
