Eden defends marriage at Bodden Town meeting

Bodden Town MLA Anthony Eden said the country needs to staunchly defend its traditional values against the onslaught of what he called the gay agenda.

Speaking at a public meeting Monday night (11 April), Mr. Eden weighed in on former Truman Bodden Law School lecturer Leonardo Raznovich’s petition to be added to his same-sex spouses’s work permit as a dependent.

He said Cayman should pay heed to the deteriorating social fabric overseas in countries that have recently allowed gay marriage as law of the land, and reject Mr. Raznovich’s appeal.

“Look at the great United States. It has become the cesspool of the world. Anything goes there” said Mr. Eden. “Is this who we are patterning ourselves after? Look at the UK, look at Europe. You think what’s happening there is by accident? You think it’s by accident? They’re killing each other off and exporting terrorism, and God bless poor America.”

He said he was overwhelmed with support from constituents after his controversial remarks last August on the LA floor. He said marriage is, and always should be, between a man and a woman.

Mr. Raznovich rebutted Mr. Eden in a statement to Cayman 27.

“It’s a sign of ignorance arrogance to state ‘anything goes’ in Armerica. It’s precisely the opposite. The rule of law is fundamental to the protection of two of its most underlying principles: equality and liberty; even to the detriment of the majoritarian ruling,” said Mr. Raznovich.
