HUNDREDS OF DUTCH PROTESTANT PASTORS SIGN ANTI-LGBTQ MANIFESTO

Hundreds of Dutch Protestant pastors, prominent people in the church, as well as the party leader and a senator of Christian party SGP, signed a manifesto against LGBTQ people. The manifesto argues that marriage is meant to only be a covenant between one man and one woman, and that good Christians should always reject homosexuality. It also suggests that your sexual identity is something you can be healed of. The manifesto is a Dutch translation of the so-called Nashville declaration, which was drawn up in the United States in 2017. The first paragraph, according to RTL Nieuws, reads: “WE CONFIRM that God intended marriage as a lifelong covenant relationship between one man ad one woman, within which sexuality has a place and from which children are brought. The purpose of marriage is to make the covenant love between Christ and His bride, the Church, visible. WE DENY that God meant marriage as a homosexual, polygamous or ployamorous relationship. We also deny that marriage is a mere human contract instead of a covenant made for God.”
