Jean Renel Senatus during Anti Gay Protest

A far-right religious group, upset over a gay-rights proposal to permit gays to wed, blanketed Port-au-Prince in a mass demonstration against same-sex marriage. Haitian Coalition of Religious and Moral Organizations were vehement, vowing to set Parliament on fire while in session, if they considered the proposal.

One coalition member said, "Haiti is not going to accept this." Haiti does not have any laws on the books opposing same-sex couples to marry, another reason for the group's outrage.
