ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, Thursday 13th October, 2016 –GIS: Grenada’s Attorney General Cajeton Hood says the Rights and Freedoms Bill, one of seven being proposed for constitutional reform, does not promote same sex marriage.

Addressing the post cabinet news briefing on Tuesday October 11th, Hood stressed that Grenada’s marriage laws speak only to a legal union between a man and woman.

“In every single one of them there is a reference between a man and a woman which is a female. There is an implication, an inescapable implication that marriage in Grenada is between a male and a female, it is clear,” said Hood.

“Notice that the amendment does not speak to marriage at all.

So how does someone import the concept that this amendment speaks to marriage or intended to apply to marriage”? The Attorney General also sought to calm fears that Grenada’s signing onto certain international treaties can make way for same sex marriage
