Same-sex couples must be heard in JR, says NPO

| 20/10/2021 | 93 Comments

(CNS): The lives of more than 40, mostly same-sex couples and their children will be “severely disrupted” if a judicial review of the governor’s use of his constitutional power to push through the Civil Partnership Law was to succeed and as a result they need to be heard, a lawyer argued Tuesday.

Alex Potts QC is representing Colours Caribbean in an application for the LGBTQ advocates to be allowed to take part in a legal case brought by a Christian group challenging the legality of how Governor Martyn Roper passed the law after Parliament had voted it down. The impact on civil partners should be considered alongside the constitutional question through written and oral evidence, Potts argued.

Neither the governor’s office nor the plaintiff, Kattina Anglin, who represents the non-profit group Christian Association for Civics, are objecting to the idea of Colours being allowed to intervene in the case, so the judge will more than likely allow them to take part in the trial set for December. But the extent of that intervention is where the disagreement lies.

Hugh Southey QC, who is representing Anglin, argued that the introduction of the details of how couples will be impacted would be prejudicial and would require the judge to speculate. He argued that if the court finds that the governor did not have the power to make the law when he did then it must be quashed, regardless of the impact on those couples. He said the couples will have different remedies open to them to challenge the government themselves for the consequences but the judge does not need to hear their individual stories.

Anglin is claiming that the case is a constitutional one. It is based on the fact that Governor Martyn Roper invoked his powers under section 81 of the Cayman Islands Constitution to pass the legislation to create civil partnerships after the controversial failure of the then Legislative Assembly to pass the law, as required by a directive of the Court of Appeal. The governor’s decision was unlawful because he does not have the power to enact this type of domestic legislation under that section of the Constitution, Anglin argues.

Colours Caribbean is arguing that their intervention and their ability to advocate for same-sex couples in this case is fundamental, and the arguments of whether or not section 81 was the right tool to implement this legislation cannot be heard in isolation from its impact on the lives of couples who have registered their partnerships.

Billie Bryan, the group’s president, said this challenge threatens to undo all of the progress the LGBTQIA+ community has made in the long journey towards achieving marriage equality.

“Colours Caribbean will be acting as intervenor, representing gays, lesbians, bisexuals and anyone else who depends on the new Civil Partnership Law to be legally recognised as a couple in the Cayman Islands, allowing for the sharing of property, joint custody of children, among many other substantial benefits typically afforded only to different-sex married couples,” she said. “The legalisation of civil partnerships a mere year ago in 2020 was a considerable milestone for our LGBTQIA+ people.”

If the legislation for civil partnerships is dismantled, that this would rip apart the couples who took advantage of the new law after years of being denied the right to marry, she added.

If the judicial review asking the law to be quashed was to succeed, the governor has already said that there are other remedies to roll out the Civil Partnership Law. There are now more members in Parliament who support the legislation, which means it could pass. Alternatively, the UK has the ultimate constitutional power of an order in council, which could be used to reinstate the law.

Meanwhile, the Privy Council decision relating to the Day-Bodden case, which was heard earlier this year, has yet to be delivered. That case deals with the application by Chantelle Day and Vickie Bodden-Bush for the British high court to overturn the Cayman Islands Court of Appeal decision to allow government’s appeal against the amendment to the Marriage Law.

This amendment was made by Chief Justice Anthony Smellie in 2019 in the Grand Court, when the couple, who began the legal fight for marriage equality in the Cayman Islands in 2017, succeeded in their human rights case.

    The governor’s role is to ensure proper governance. Had the appeal court made even civil unions not legal, and the legislative assembly chose to make it legal (in spite of what the appeal court ordered) the governor would have still had to intervene. There is a relationship among the three branches of government, and because of the short-sighted and close-minded actions of members of the legislative assembly, that relationship between the legislative and the judiciary had broken down. The governor restored that relationship. That is the purpose of his emergency powers. I have a very good feeling that this judicial review is an exercise in futility And those that have made use of the civil partnership act have nothing to worry about. If the judicial review is successful, all it will do is put the Cayman Islands in a position where full marriage equality is ordered from the Privy Council and there will be nothing Kattina and her crew can do after that. Kattina had better be careful – she might end up bringing about the same thing she’s hoping to prevent.

      Mugabe, I think that your pos is taking it a bit far and promoting divisiveness and hatred.

      Christians like everyone else should have the freedom to practice their beliefs it they chose to. Denigrating them for your own benefit is completely wrong. There are many good Christian people on this island and I strongly believe that whether you chose to believe what they believe or not, it has been beneficial to this island for a long time.

      As far as this so called “radicalized” group led by Kattina, it does not espouse Christian beliefs but is in fact, hijacking the Christian Church and its beliefs, in her efforts to promote her political agenda, whatever that may be.

      There is a line to be drawn here somewhere as I cannot believe that every Christian believer on this island is connected to or supportive of this group or faction.

    I wish my fellow caymanians loved to fight for better schooling for our kids in the same way they love to fight other law abiding citizens from being legally recognized as married.

    I’m a libertarian and I believe you should

    – respect property rights
    – respect freedom of speech
    – do not cause any physical harm to someone else.

    In no way shape or form does two people you don’t know cause you physical harm, infringe on your rights to say what you want or infringe on your property that you own. So how can you celebrate and fight for some people not being able to marry.

    But I think I see the core issue. Values from the older generation are no longer the same to those below them. Globalistation and the internet has caused a massive shift as younger generations are becoming more and more influenced by so many cultures around the globe and not just the country where they live. Those who hold steadfast in their religious values want the rest of the country to do the same.. but soon you will be in the minority and you need to learn how to cope with that. You can claim your bible has all the answers but in the real world, your scripture is nullified by the mere fact that I don’t believe in it. It is nothing but words on a paper, no different from books in the fiction section of the library.

    The beauty of the libertarian perspective is that you bible thumpers can do exactly what you want within your own communities but you seem to think that EVEYRONE needs to do what you think is right. You are now infringing on the rights of people to live in the society based on some words on a paper written by men almost 3 millennia ago.

    If marriage wasn’t tied to obtaining joint loans / mortgages and other facets so that you and another person are seen as one, then I wouldn’t even be commenting to you. But the way society works means that your incessant push for everyone to conform with what you see as right is hurting a group of people. If it wasn’t, I would advise those who are gay to just ignore it and do their own thing.

    As a Caymanian who is for freedom of choice, I will fight for everyone’s right to be married to whichever human being they want. I grew up with people who came forth after years of friendship as gay. I didn’t even blink because none of that matters to me. They were the same classmates and friends who stuck with me for years and never treated me differently.

    All the bible thumpers who talk about “go somewhere else”, I will smile when it is you in the minority. As a millennial who believed everything the generation above told me and followed what they believed was the best path forward, I come back from school abroad to a government that couldn’t care less about me. So I work day in and day out, switch careers and I’m climbing the corporate ladder only to still have old men and women stuck in the past claim their feelings are more important that mine. You have destroyed the island with your greed. I mean, I’m all for development but you can’t put / keep 5 trees on the land? Do you have to turn everything into cement? And I’m almost positive that it is my generation who will have fix your shit when you are done. All the money people will leave because they are not tied to this island, but it is very same people you are fighting against that will have to save you.

    So.. its time to change that. We will let democracy handle this and if it does turn out that you lose, I cannot wait to tell you to “go find somewhere else to live” because I for one am done with this concept that I owe allegiance the same people who take from me while they don’t have the same values as I do.

These “special rights” have nothing to do with the already existing rights in our Constitution – THAT APPLIES FOR EVERYBODY… All I’m saying, a Democracy must enforce laws that are scientifully grounded at least in biology.

    When it comes to this, I’m unsure what the justification there is for not letting people live their own lives. As long as people are not actively threatening you or your property, why can’t people who have different sexual preferences get married? It’s absolutely asinine that a set of people, who do not know anything about another party claim they know what’s best for them. You know the common notion that a child sent to a super strict school is expected to be some sort of deviant because they aren’t spoken to, they are dictated to.

    They do not get to work out their thoughts and feelings, instead they just see people encroaching on their life telling them what they are allowed to do or feel. This is what is happening and no-one is going to like the repercussions of continuously preventing people from living their own lives. I’ve noticed a lot more teenagers admitting to being bi-sexual and gay. Is it partially attributable to being rebellious to the current culture? Possibly, but we will never find out if they are just told its wrong and it isn’t allowed. Calling them sinners and misguided will never allow either side of the debate to understand each other and only conflict arises.

    I just don’t understand how two people, who want to live a life together are being prevented from doing so legally. Absolutely garbage.

    Freedom of choice in relationships, freedom of choice in vaccinations. No mandates, no coercion.

    For heaven’s sake, this case should be dismissed with a Summary Judgment from the bench, saying that plaintiff “Christian Assn for Civics” has NO case. It’s long past time to STOP bashing gays. True Christians reject such bigotry and recognise that “you love who you love”. Whereas, this plaintiff (and so-called “Christian”) is obsessed with who their neighbour loves — and whether the gender combination within their neighbour’s house comports with plaintiff’s narrow-mindedness. NOTE: If Billy loves Tommy, good for them! If Mary love Jane, good for them! My advice to plaintiff: Worry about what goes on in YOUR OWN house, not the house of others!

      Sure. Except they have a case. The UK chickened out and the Governor out stepped his bounds. An Order in Council (if our own parliament will not pass an act permitting same sex marriage) is the proper way forward.
