CACPE Raises Issues with National ID Bills

The Christian Association has, following its own consultation with members of public and private investors, has made its submissions to the Cayman Islands Government on its “National ID Register Bill” (“Register Bill”) and its “National Identification Card Bill” (“ID Card”)
The Association along with other stakeholders. having met with both the Honourable Leader of the Opposition, Mr Roy McTaggart and Honourable Deputy Leader Joey Hew and subsequently with the Honourable Minister of Innovation Mr Andre Ebanks, have cited various negative implications with the Bills. Some of the issues raised in its submissions included a lack of genuine public consultation, violations of privacy rights, and a power imbalance between the government and the individual through an expansion of categories and offences that can be created by regulations made in secret by Cabinet.

CACPE Launches Vaccine Choice Legal Funding Campaign

The Christian Association has launched it legal funding campaign to help bring a legal challenge against the Cayman Islands Government (CIG) regarding its recent passing of legislation that is viewed as discriminatory as it mandates CV19 vaccinations for those who do not have the classification of “Caymanian”. 
The Association maintains that the laws (or Acts as they are now called) are discriminatory against work permit holders, simply because they are foreign workers in the country and that even If the government passed legislation that included Caymanians, it would still be a violation of the human rights afforded under the Cayman Islands Constitution Order 2009 
The Association is asking for the general public to contribute to the fund and not leave the weight of the legal expenses to a particular class of persons in the country to fund, as all calibres of the social structure will be affected by this, from the domestic helper to the hedge fund manager.
“Not only is the legislation an absolute abomination to the Godly principle to do good for those who are foreigners in your country and not oppress them as commanded by God in Exodus 22:21, but I am also concerned about the pride that the representatives have expressed in doing this.  They are forcing people to take a medical treatment based simply and only on that they are not Caymanian.  What’s next; yellow stars?” asked Ms Kattina Anglin, Public Relations Officer of the Christian Association. 
“It is imperative that every person contributes as much as they can, penny, dollar, nickel or dime, proportionately, to fighting this injustice, regardless of what position they hold”, said Ms Anglin.
Donations can be made to Christian Association, Butterfield Bank, KYD SAV, 136 175 498 0026.  The Association can be contacted via email at or through its Contact page or for more information, visit its Donate page.

CACPE Issues Letter Before Action to CIG

The Christian Association for Civics and Political Education (CACPE), known locally as the “Christian Association”, has issued a Letter Before Action to the Cayman Islands Government (CIG) regarding an anticipated mandating of the “Covid19 vaccine”.
In the letter, which was addressed to the Members of Parliament, His Excellency the Governor and the Chief Medical Officer, the Christian Association asserts that “a law of this nature would be incompatible with the fundamental human rights of people in the Cayman Islands. Those rights are assured by the Bill of Rights, Freedoms and Responsibilities (“the Bill of Rights”)  contained within the Cayman Islands Constitution Order 2009 (“the Cayman Islands Constitution”) and enshrined within other
international human rights treaties and charters by which the Cayman Islands are bound.”  
It then goes on to make a very cogent argument on the various rights to be affected, how they would be and the reasons why the government cannot interfere with those rights: the introduction of a mandatory vaccination law would threaten the rights assured by sections 2 (right to life), 3 (prohibition of inhuman treatment), 9 (right to private life), 10 (right to freedom of conscience and religion) and 16 (freedom from discrimination).  
In its conclusion the Christian Association sets out its position “By this letter, our client puts the Government on notice that it will hold the Government liable for all future harm that follows from the imposition of a mandatory vaccination law. In the event that the Government does pass a law to this effect, our client gives notice that it will challenge the law through judicial process, including the seeking of a declaration of incompatibility under section 23 of the Bill of Rights.
Public Relations Officer for the Christian Association, Kattina Anglin, commented on the letter and other concerns: “It seems as though the employers throughout the country have taken up the gavel for the government.  Just as we have put the government on notice, we also put the private employers on notice: we will help to defend the rights of individuals in this country; their rights life, privacy, personal integrity, religious belief and conscience, to name a few”.
“Employers are making these demands but are not offering any compensation plans to employees in case the vaccine gives them a grave adverse effect. Myocarditis is one that the government admitted in the recent FOI has been reported as a side effects of the vaccine.  It doesn’t matter how many gets it – it’s a possibility and the truth is no one wants to be that “one”. What is the protection offered to the employee who develops myocarditis, blood clots, falls from dizziness and hits their head ending their own life? Employers are treating employees like they are furniture with these demands. They are acting in a cold and callous manner without regard for the employees personal wellbeing. Incredibly, although according to the information provided on the vaccine’s efficacy, the vaccinated can also contract and pass the virus on to others, they are not committed to weekly testing. This is a different treatment of people with equal standing based on a particular characteristic or social status (unvaccinated) and therefore these demands appear to be discriminatory against the unvaccinated.”
The Christian Association continues to work with and support the group, Vaccine Choice Cayman, to uphold their rights.  Their website can be viewed at or by clicking here VACCINE CHOICE CAYMAN and the Letter Before Action can be read in its entirety here: Letter before Action to CIG


CACPE Issues Public Notice to CIG Over CV-19 Vax Concerns

Article by Christopher
(Reformatted at 6:46pm, 26/08/21)
On 11th August 2021 the Christian Association issued a formal notice to the Cayman Islands Government, as well as to private sector employers: “Citizens’ Rights To Choose To Be Vaccinated for SARS-CoV-2” and notified that it was seeking advice on, among other things, the issue of proper and full consent to vaccinations in accord with the full observance internationally-established medical and legal protocols.
The Christian Association recognizes the importance of public health and safety, and the desire to protect the population by taking all reasonable steps to do so during a pandemic, but it also recognizes the rights of the individual to accept or to refuse any medical treatment or to be a part of any medical experimentation.
The Association is particularly concerned about significant areas where these protocols may have not been properly recognized, effectively resulting in a state of varying levels of coercion (the opposite to consent) affecting the level of the injection recipients’ practical ability to make free and unfettered choices. Coercion can be effective based on, among other things, the recipients’ economic, social and legal status. Work permit holders often have very little voice because of their insecure position and have become the target of a direct and obvious kind of coercion, namely, the Government’s announcement of its intent to not grant permit renewals if work permit holders do not receive the vaccine.
But, one of the most important protocols before true consent to any kind of medical treatment can be considered to have been given is the proper and full dissemination of all relevant information, which should include some kind of factual reference to known side effects.
Kattina Anglin, one of the Christian Association founders and Public Relations Officer, said, “The government has made it clear that the side effects data they have been collecting will not be released to the public any time soon”, in reference to the Radio Cayman’s Talk Today interview of 29th July 2021. Incredibly, this information is a part of what is necessary for patients to make decisions based on informed consent.
The Association believes that the deliberate withholding of this vital information amid the Government’s rush to produces pro-vaccination propaganda amounts to grounds for a legal challenge as to the legitimacy and integrity of the vaccination consent.
“The Nuremberg Code requires that whenever a human being is asked to receive a medical treatment or participate in medical experimentation, ‘The Code states that ‘The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential’.”, Ms. Anglin said. “Coercion, whether in the form of a reward system such as seen in the recent private lotteries for $100K, pieces of land, airline tickets, or in a more pressured approach such as threats to employment, of bullying and withholding pay raises or bonuses are all a violation of the Code, which applies here in the Cayman Islands in addition to Article 7 of the International Convention on Civil and Political Rights”

Parallel to the issue of withholding information on side effects the Christian Association also cites the CIG’s failure to properly promote any alternative treatment, particularly other regulated products that are proven effective for the prevention, treatment and cure which are proven effective globally.

From a biblical perspective Bible places much emphasis in both the Old and the New Testaments on looking after vulnerable people. Christians are also instructed to “Learn to do good. Seek justice. Relieve the oppressed. Seek justice for the fatherless. Plead for the widow” (Is. 1:17). There are also several passages which deal specifically with treating the “wanderer,” and “sojourner,” with the same kindness and respect and justice they would use to treat those who are established in the land.

“The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God,” (Leviticus 19:34), and, “’Cursed is anyone who withholds justice from the foreigner, the fatherless or the widow.’” (Deuteronomy 27:19)

The Christian Association feels that these passages can be directly applied to the situation of work permit holders, whose security in Cayman is precarious, since they are away from their own social support networks and in an unfamiliar country. They are effectively treated as outsiders with no real rights, since their tenure here depends entirely on whether or not they continue to please their employer, even in the face of unreasonable demands.

“From one enters the country, the Cayman Islands Bill of Rights covers them,” Ms. Anglin said. “That means you cannot treat a work permit holder more unfavourably than you would another worker in the same environment doing the same job without justification. We brought them here to do the janitorial, domestic and caregiving jobs that we as Caymanians don’t want to fill; they are the hedge fund managers, lawyers, IT specialists, doctors, the very people we were dependent on to build and maintain our financial services and keep us in the position of “top ten financial centre”, but yet we want to take away their right to choose their course of medical treatment, prevention or to be in a medical experiment simply on the basis that they hold a work permit. This isn’t how we should treat fellow human beings in our country, while saying at the same time that we are unselfish and have “Cayman Kind”.”

The Christian Association is preparing to support action that may be required for the enforcement of proper patient protection here in the Cayman Islands for Caymanians, Permanent Residents and Expatriates alike. It is therefore pressing ahead by obtaining advice on the legality of mandatory vaccinations, as well as the rights of patients and citizens to choose to be vaccinated. The Association is exploring the potential for lack of informed consent in previously vaccinated persons and its legal implications, as well as the legality of demands by employers for vaccination of employees.

Continuing to speak on behalf of the Association, Ms Anglin stated that withholding rights and justice from certain vulnerable segments of the population is the first step on a very dark path, and that it is important to learn from the atrocities carried out on certain sections of the German population by the NAZIs during World War 2 who were deemed to have no rights by a systematic and unchallenged process of dehumanization.

We believe the Cayman Islands can and should shine as a beacon of fairness and justice and hope throughout the region and the world rather than begin to follow the path worn by evil regimes of the past.
There is now a local secured, independent, self-reporting site, which collects reports of side effects from the COVID19 vaccine locally. There is also a local website Vaccine Choice Cayman that offers information on side effects and other reports from reputable sources which the CIG apparently also relies on and hosts a secured petition for the public to sign on the issue.



Christians’ Civic Duty


Judicial Review: Kattina Anglin v Governor of Cayman Islands

Dieu Et Mon Droit
Amidst the flurry of anti-Christian/Christophobic rhetoric, the judicial review against the Governor’s actions remains safely in tact and pushing forward, through all the resistance that it is receiving.
The challenge was brought by Ms Kattina Anglin as a result of the Governor using section 81 of the Cayman Islands Constitution Order 2009 to impose the Civil Partnership Act (2020), despite the legislative process not being allowed to complete itself. The Act commenced as the Domestic Partnership Bill which failed to pass in the Legislative Assembly (LA) following intense debate and threats that England would pass the Bill if the LA didn’t. Legislators voiced a willingness to debate an amended bill, but were not given the opportunity to do so. Instead, the Governor declared that there was no legislative will to pass the Bill. Ms Anglin asserts that invoking s.81 of the Constitution in order to deploy his powers under s.55 and bring into force the then renamed “Civil Partnership Act” was unlawful.

The power of the Legislative Assembly – no law to pass a law

There is no obligation on the LA to pass a bill. The LA is the supreme law making authority in the Cayman Islands. The power to make laws (section 59; laws are subjected to the Constitution) and amend laws (section 5(2)) rests in the LA and even when it has a piece of legislation that may be found incompatible by the judiciary, there is no obligation on the LA to amend the law nor to make new law because the court thinks it should. The court (judiciary) can make a declaration of incompatibility (section 23(1)), but that declaration does not make it repugnant to the Constitution (23(2)) and the LA shall decide how to remedy the compatibility (23(3)).
However, the LA can choose to accept the incompatible law over any alternative legislation that it could introduce, as set out by Lady Hale in Nicklinson and Lamb ([2014] UKSC 38) at paragraph 300: “…Parliament is much the preferable forum in which the issue should be decided. Indeed, under our constitutional arrangements, it is the only forum in which a solution can be found which will render our law compatible with the Convention rights…I see little to be gained, and much to be lost, by refraining from making a declaration of incompatibility. Parliament is then free to cure that incompatibility, either by a remedial order under section 10 of the Act or (more probably in a case of this importance and sensitivity) by Act of Parliament, (or to do nothing. It may do nothing, either because it does not share our view that the present law is incompatible, or because, as a sovereign Parliament, it considers an incompatible law preferable to any alternative.” (emphasis added)(Section 10 referred to by Lady Hale is power to take remedial action afforded to Westminster Parliament under the UK Human Rights Act. The Cayman Islands has its own codified Constitution and Bill of Rights and therefore the UKHRA does not apply here.)
The Governor, in what was referred to as “consultation” before passing the law, mentioned points that were in support of the Act being passed, reassurances that he was “Christian”, that he was understanding of religious views but that he was adhering to the “rule of law” (we will expand on the RoL in another article).  However, there was no proper consultation; there lacked real discussion throughout the country on the proposed law. The Governor’s engagement with the public was limited to approximately 5 radio appearances, each restricted in time allotments and the public engagement was equally restricted even in the way questions could be asked and the period of time callers were allowed to engage with the Governor. The efforts to consult on any law which affects a controversial, highly ethical and moral issue should be balanced with the effect that passing the law would have on the Constitution, the spirit of the law and the social atmosphere of the country; in this instance it most definitely should have also reflected the public consultation efforts on the Constitution itself.

Legal Aid 

Contingent to the initial Legal Aid grant, Ms Anglin was required to make a contribution to the Legal Aid certificate in the sum of $5,000.00 due to Ms Anglin having shares at the Credit Union; there has been subsequent requirements in the sums of $4,000.00 each, one of which has been paid and the other outstanding.  In each contribution, the Christian community came forward and covered the contributions, but new demands for legal aid contributions inevitably brought delays in hearing the matter.
The Director’s demands for a mandatory contribution are risking a dangerous precedent against matters brought on the grounds of “interest of justice” and may amount to a fundamental breach of the right to access one’s rights or to be defended from an arbitrary action of the government (the Governor is a public servant employed by the Cayman Islands Government, although appointed by the Queen) or seek a remedy against the government. A constitutional challenge is one of the actions that is protected from costs and the Legal Aid law also allows for the Director to disallow contributions in the interest of justice.

What is the latest on the judicial review?

The judicial review has been scheduled for a hearing on 12th December 2021, more than one year after the proceedings commenced and the law was passed.  Says Ms Anglin: “They say it is due to the Crown’s counsel being unavailable until then.  This comes after having to get a ministerial opinion on “international obligations” in December that put the case off until after February of 2021.  If it had been properly researched ascertaining lawfulness, there would have been no need for obtaining a ministerial submission in 2021; they would have had it on file, having obtained and ascertained that point BEFORE passing the law. God’s got this. And even if He does not deliver me, I still will not bow. God and my right…I will have them both.”
The application against the governor is supported by CACPE and its members as good and of God.  CACPE takes the opportunity to remind the Christian community that the way to win is to preach, teach and speak the Truth consistently and fearlessly: Jesus Christ is Lord and Saviour, he died for our sins and he IS returning. Regardless of how many believe it or accept it.
