Church conference on anti-sodomy laws

Anglican Bishop Dr John Holder

JAMAICA

Thirty-two confirmed speakers from across the globe will represent different Christian traditions at Intimate Conviction, an international conference examining the church and anti-sodomy laws across the Commonwealth.

Theological speakers from the Adventist, Anglican, Baptist, Catholic, Evangelical and United Churches will address the past, present and future role of churches in ending anti-sodomy laws and also seek to establish an ecumenical framework for removing these statutes. The event, the first of its kind, takes place October 12–13 at the Eon Nigel Harris Room at the UWI Mona campus, Kingston. Intimate Conviction is organised by a coalition of groups led by the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network.
