A “mass wedding” of sodomite couples with the “migrant caravan” just took place on the US-Mexican border:
At least seven LGBTQ couples who traveled through Mexico with the migrant caravan commemorated their love during a symbolic mass-wedding celebration in the border town of Tijuana.
Guatemalan Pedro Nehemias Pastor and Honduran Erick Alexander Durán were one of the couples who partook in the ceremony.
“This is really a dream come true, because you don’t see this in our home countries and this is something that we’ve always wanted to do, and today we had the opportunity to do so. I’m very happy,” Nehemias Pastor said in Spanish.
Several Mexican states such as Baja California, where Tijuana is located, recognize same sex marriages after the Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled in 2015 that state bans on marriage equality were unconstitutional.
“This is an act of justice,” said Hugo Córdoba, one of the three officiants from a Unitarian Universalist church delegation who married the couples on Saturday. “The dream of marrying is an illusion for most of them. We are helping them make this a reality.”
LGBTQ migrants have been fleeing their homes in Central America for years, mostly due to the disproportionate violence they face living in the Northern Triangle of Central America.
The countries of the Northern Triangle of Central America, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, already deal with the highest levels of violence worldwide. Their murder rates are three to eight times over what the World Health Organization considers to be epidemic levels.
The World Health Organization considers a rate of 10 murders per 100,000 inhabitants to be an epidemic level. In 2016, El Salvador saw a murder rate of 81 per 100,000 inhabitants. In Honduras, it was 59 per 100,000 and 27 per 100,000 in Guatemala, according to Amnesty International.
“Lesbian, Gay , Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex people (LGBTI) are particularly exposed to violence in the Northern Triangle countries,” said Amnesty International in a report. “This is related intrinsically to the multiple forms of discrimination that LGBTI people face in the different spheres of their family and working life, as part of society more widely and institutionally.”

On November 14, 2018, I wrote an article where I explained in detail about the situation of the LGBT in Central America, and how in the nation of Honduras, there is NO “persecution” of the LGBT because they are legally protected by law and have been for over a century.
It is true that there is much violence in Central America, and in combination with the abysmally low wages that the average person receives, many see this as justification for making the risky journey to the US. However, to even suggest in the slightest way that they are leaving because of “anti-LGBT” persecution is an absolute lie because it does not exist.
Support of homosexuality is rampant throughout Central America. This is easily demonstrated by Google Trends, where a search of the term “gay” for the past five years shows all Central or South American nations in the top ten, with every nation in Central America except Belize placing in the same top ten:
Central America has more support of the LGBT than in the US. Clearly, the reason these people are fleeing has nothing to do with “persecution” of the LGBT.
This equivocation between the “migrant caravan” and the LGBT is merely an attempt to say that if one opposes the “caravan” one is against the LGBT, and if one supports the “caravan” one supports the LGBT. It is the same false dynamic that the American conservative attempts to make between Islam and the LGBT, where if one opposes Islam one must support the LGBT, and likewise if one support Islam one must oppose the LGBT.
None of these things are true because they are not dependent on each other in the absolute sense. However, the attempts to draw a false association between the two is only done in order to advance certain contemporary political goals.
The reality is what it has always been, which is that homosexual behavior is a sin that cries out to Heaven for vengeance, that it is evil, and that is being used today for political manipulation and will only end in destruction.
