KINGSTON, Jamaica -- The second annual Love March by young Christians advocating sexual purity and moral practices will take place under the theme “Protect the Children! Protect the Nation!” on Saturday, September 14, starting at 9:00 am.
The march starts at Hope Gardens and ends at the Mandela Park in Half-Way Tree.
At the park, the group will host a programme of prayer, worship and performances by Christian artistes, interspersed with testimonies of “deliverance from sexual sin and healing from sexual brokenness”.
According to the President of the Love March Movement, Daniel Thomas, the objectives of the march are to bring attention to:
-The need to protect our children from sexual exposure that coerces them, exploits their innocence or promotes deviant sexual mindsets and behaviour.
-The need to keep the buggery law and other family-centred laws that encourage and reward stable family life.
-The fact that participants in the Love March are standing up for sexual purity, under the slogan: “Virgins: rings, no flings!”
"We are concerned about the possible sexual exposure which many children are now facing,” Thomas said adding that the Love March Movement lifts up faithful, monogamous and life-long heterosexual marriages as being the best for society and a way of strengthening the family unit, as well as the moral fabric of our nation.
“Children are being preyed upon in schools -- as exemplified in materials such as the HFLE curriculum and calls for condom distribution; in the streets where there is trafficking into prostitution and exposure to lewd, adult-rated music; as well as molestation at home.”
