Cuba's churches reject gay marriage before vote on new constitution

Today 01:29 GMT

More than 100 married couples dressed in their wedding clothes have gathered on the Malecón coastal boulevard to renew their wedding vows and protest against gay marriage being allowed in Cuba.

The protest is the latest in an unprecedented campaign by evangelical churches against elements of the island’s new constitution, which will be put to a referendum next Sunday. “We’re speaking out in favour of marriage as it was originally designed,” said Bishop Ricardo Pereira of the Methodist Church of Cuba, who emphasised that the event was not political but an “expression of faith”.
