Vanuatu Council of Churches oppose LGBT association.

The Vanuatu Christian Council of Churches says it does not welcome the recent establishment of a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender ( LGBT ) association in Vanuatu.

The chairman of Vanuatu Council of Churches Bishop James Ligo, says the constitution is based on Christian and Melanesian values.

Ligo says he intends to discuss the issue with the government.

“We respect them as human beings. But people have to understand, the government has to understand, how to interpret the right that is theirs as homosexuals and lesbians, and how do we deal with their rights in order not to allow division to come into families, communities, the church, and other organisations as well.”
