FISH BAY, Tortola, VI- The issue of same-sex marriage is always a hot and controversial topic in the Virgin Islands and many a politician choose to shy away from it. At a press conference called by Progressive Virgin Islands Movement (PVIM) at HireBVI Conference Room on February 24, 2023, the members of the panel were asked their position on the topic.

While Chairman of PVIM and At Large Candidate Ronnie W. Skelton and Junior Minister for Trade, Economic Development, Agriculture and Fisheries Hon Shereen D. Flax-Charles (AL) danced around the subject, Minister for Natural Resources and Labour Hon Melvin M. Turnbull (R2) faced it head on, stating that marriage should be between a man and a woman.

“I will stand on the biblical principles for which I was raised and for which I believe in: that marriage is between — and should be between — a man a woman,” said Hon Turnbull, an ordained minister of the Gospel.

‘There is a bit of confusion’- Ronnie W. Skelton

Mr Skelton said he is of the view that same-sex marriage is a subject to be interpreted by those who are more competent to do so, like the courts and the church.

“There is a bit of confusion that I myself is not clear about so until that happens, now that you ask me the question in a public forum, I will try to make sure that I look at it in a more objective way and see exactly what is being asked.”

A ‘very ticklish’ issue- Hon Flax-Charles

Hon Flax-Charles said same-sex marriage is a very “ticklish” issue that has its pros and cons.

“And I would go out on a limb to say that perhaps in the case of same-sex marriage, a referendum needs to happen. These people are human beings as well, and we have to understand that while you may believe something should be a certain way, we have to respect the beliefs of others and so let us as a community, a Virgin Islands community, decide the way to go.”


Premier and Minister of Finance Dr the Hon Natalio D. Wheatley, in a statement on Monday, December 19, 2022, said a referendum on same-sex marriage was decided at a special meeting of Cabinet held on Friday, December 16, 2022, where Cabinet members decided to refer the matter to the local electorate.

“This will be the first referendum in the history of the Virgin Islands. It will be held at some point after our general elections, so that the question can be considered without distraction.”

Dr Wheatley said this referendum will also give those with strong views on the matter, including the local religious community, the opportunity to defend what they believe to be socially and morally right.

    I have met same sex couples in many countries of the world. Usually living in better harmony than regular”
    Never saw them screaming and shouting as each other.

    We as a community would not be able to change people’s mind. Let them embrace. There are a number of prominent BV-Islander like this living among us. We would make a lot of money if we accept to perform their marriages here in the BVI

      'God is not going to rewrite the bible for your generation! Stop trying to change scripture when it's written to change you!' Marcus Rogers

      In the end there is only one God and His word is clear! Whether you believe Jesus exist or not, God will be God and His word is supreme above man's words throughout each generation. You are Not GOD you do not set rules, you do not rule the Ruler! You will leave this generation, and another will come, but He exist and is with each generation and He has made rules for His creation to follow and obey.

      God says Homosexuality is an evil and fornication is an evil and sexual immorality is evil. God says marriage is with a man and a woman. God does not compromise with evil! God is very clear on how He feels about evil! God does not hold referendum with His creation to decide if His words must be obeyed!

      (You have one decision to make in the time that you have been given by God and you only get this small fraction in time to make it, as does each generation. There is no middle ground and ignoring evil is evil.) The question is... Who is your God, who rules your flesh (you, the world, evil forces, or God your creator)?

      Choose wisely because in the end, you Will stand before Jesus and He Will choose your soul's eternal destination by the choices you make in life. Will you be with Him or not?

      @Happy marriages? That is what the devil would want you to believe!

      Genesis 1:27:

      So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.

      Romans 1:18-28

      God’s Wrath Against Sinful Humanity
      18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

      21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

      24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

      26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

      28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.

      The devil has your mind blinded. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for this same homosexual behaviour. And we will suffer the consequences the minute that law is passed in the British Virgin Islands.

      Do you have a problem with my post? Take it up with the Creator of Heaven and Earth.

        5 The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time.

        6 The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled.

        7 So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.

    We know why the other two tiptoeing around the topic and not taking a righteous stance trying not to offend and to get those votes. They chose a side and it’s DEFINITELY not the Lord’s side.

    Too many want to be calling God’s name in their mouth out of convenience but siding with the devil.

    As Paul says in Ephesians 4:19, “Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality.”

    This is a picture of the pagan world described in Romans 1:24-27:

    Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. 

    A disregard for God led to the sexual revolution, as the hearts of men and women were given to sexual impurity—degrading their bodies with one another. It also led to what Scripture calls “shameful lusts,” referring to homosexuality—men burning in passion for one another, and women for women. Paul describes the world culture as sexually crazed.

    Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. 1 John 2:15

    Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2

    You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. James 4:4

    Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position. 2 Peter 3:17

    But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15

    Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. Proverbs 4:5

    Marriage is between a man and a woman. PERIOD! If two man or two woman man want to get married let them do do but call it a Dane sex union with the benefits that comes with it. GOD created the institution of marriage, DO NOT interfere with what God has put in place. For those fools who do not believe in God tell me how the universe came to be and explain how the thing that evolved came to be. NOTHING that exist can bring itself into existence, everything that is in the world had a starting point. God is outside of time, space, matter, and energy, thats why he has the power to create from nothing. God is self existing and eternal. Shalom!

They are asking that they have all the benefits of a couple consisting of a male and a female.

    I agree there is nothing to be discussed. I agree that marriage should be between a male and female. Each person has a right to determine their own desteny. Any time a person choose to use their bodies to do what God did not create it to do it is an abomination. Parts of our body was made to take in things while another part was made to let things out. I wouldn't push things in my ear because it was not designed for that purpose. There is a reason why there are locks and keys. One wouldn't use one lock to open another but as I said each man must decide for him/herself. I wouldn't go hating anyone who has a different belief than me

Yes, we cannot force anyone to live righteously....even God doesn't force us but that doesn't negate our responsibility as a people to say when something is right and when it's wrong especially when we know what the BIBLE says. The funny thing is all these politicians go church which stands behind the principles in the BIBLE, yet they choose to ignore and totally disregard GOD'S will. We should not hate those who are apart of the LGBTQ community however, we should love them enough to tell them it's's a sickness. We can't stop them from being together but we should not tell them it's ok to be married cause it's not and we all know it.

    Please Christians' i am on your side i just need clarity.... if all sins are equal why is this sin so much greater? why don't the same type of condemnation happens for those of you who lie, commit adultery, cheat, fornicate, kill, etc? some of the same ministers condemning this is guilty of a lot of sins daily but no condemnation on this level is issued there. so why such a strong stance on this particular sin and not the others you all live in daily?

    Funny how people want to cite the Bible in espousing their opposition to same gender marriage while at the same time ignoring other parts of the Bible that speak to not bearing false witness, committing adultery, honoring our forebears, killing others, and coveting your neighbor's house/wife or anything else that is his.
